U.K. Releases UFO Records
Britain’s Ministry of Defense is making public secret documents related to unidentified flying objects and alleged contacts with aliens. The records, collected between 1978 and 1987, include observations from the public as well as military personnel.
Wait, before you go…
These documents will be available to download for free for the first month.
A spokesman for the National Archives said they were now becoming available after several requests made under the Freedom of Information Act, and also because of a “proactive move by the Ministry of Defence for an open and transparent government”.
Much of the previously classified paperwork is made up of correspondence from the public sent to government officials, such as the MoD and then-prime minister Margaret Thatcher.
