Beginning in the 1950s, Skinwalker Ranch and the area around it has been referred to as ‘UFO alley,’ where numerous anomalous events and strange activity have received worldwide media attention. Since then, the area has been the site of decades of study, some clandestinely funded by the government. In 1996, the property was purchased by billionaire businessman and UFO enthusiast Robert Bigelow, who used it to conduct his own experiments into the study of the ranch and its other-worldly connections. Three years ago, the property was sold to another, mysterious owner who — for reasons of his own — has, for now, chosen to remain anonymous.
For the first time, cameras will be allowed onto the property for a television series, according to History, allowing the network to uncover the who, what and why of the secretive area.
