This flying saucer convention from the 50s took place under a rock

Thanks to photographer Ralph Crane, who took these evocative black-and-white snapshots of a 1957 flying saucer convention in the Californian desert that had an unusual attraction in the form of a secret home that hid out of sight under a giant rock (just look at it!), we declare ourselves incapable of going to any normal convention and be impressed now.
