Man gets locked in UFO Museum, takes hilarious photos with aliens

Yahoo News Photo Staff

A UFO enthusiast who found himself locked in the iconic Roswell museum has shared the hilarious pictures he took with aliens to pass the time. Chris Burton, from the U.K., had dreamed of visiting Roswell, N.M., since he was a child but was stunned when he found himself locked in the International UFO Museum and Research Center during a recent trip.

The 42-year-old used the unique opportunity to get interactive with the usually out of bounds exhibits and set up some funny snaps with the extraterrestrials — posing for a beer with one alien and taking a nap with another.

Chris, a freelance photography director, said: “I was in Roswell as part of a road trip that started because of a cheap flight. I was shooting stock footage for a TV production company and writing a blog on the days I had free.” (Caters News)

“I had two days off in Roswell, somewhere I’d always wanted to visit since I was a kid.” (Photo: Chris Burton/Caters News)

“I thought it would be amusing for friends back home if I take some photos with the displays but didn’t expect an opportunity like this.” (Photo: Chris Burton/Caters News)

“Absorbed in the displays and quite tired from driving — I’d covered 3,000 miles in 11 days.” (Photo: Chris Burton/Caters News)
