Rare Microfilms of UFO Sightings Now Available Online

  • The files relate to USAF investigations into UFO from 1947-1969

  • They were conducted under ‘Project Blue Book’ which ended in 1970

  • More than 700 cases remain unsolved, accounting for 5.5% of the files


In 1948, the US government launched several inquiries into UFO sightings, which many believed were sparked by Cold War paranoia.
In what became known as ‘Project Blue Book,’ more than 12,000 encounters with UFOs were looked into by the Air Force.
Now, decades after the files were closed, the microfilms have been made available online for free – allowing anyone to re-examine the evidence.

Pictured is the staff of Project Blue Book, which recorded more than 12,000 encounters with UFOs. Sitting in the centre is Hector Quintanilla, the last chief officer of Project Blue Book
The USAF says that the Blue Book included 12,618 sightings reports, with 701 of which remained ‘unidentified’ – or around 5.5 per cent of the files.
The files, which can be accessed here, were previously only available by visiting the National Archives in Washington, according to a report in openminds.tv.
‘There is plenty of work for amateur investigators to try to come up with explanations they never had time to consider or research,’ Nigel Watson author of the UFO investigations Manual told MailOnline.
One case that Mr Watson is particularly intrigued in for historical reasons is a report filed by Kenneth Arnold which led to the popular term ‘flying saucers’.

Mr Arnold saw nine UFOs over Mount Rainier, on 24 June 1947 and the US government agencies took an interest in reports. A similar sighting (pictured) occurred over Tulsa, Oklahoma on July 12, 1947

The information was transferred online after John Greenewald, who runs a website called The Black Vault, submitted thousands of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests


WHAT IS PROJECT BLUE BOOK?

Project Blue Book was the name for a project that investigated UFO reports between 1947 and 1969.
It was the third study of its kind. The first two were projects Sign (1947) and Grudge (1949).
The aim was to determine if UFOs were a threat to national security, and to scientifically analyse UFO-related data.
The USAF says that Blue Book included 12,618 sightings reports, with 701 of which remained ‘unidentified’ – or around 5.5 per cent of the files.
A termination order was given for the study in December 1969, and all activity under its project ended in January 1970.


Mr Arnold saw nine UFOs over Mount Rainier, on 24 June 1947 and the US government agencies took an interest in reports.
A similar sighting occurred over Tulsa, Oklahoma, just a month later on July 12, 1947
‘They flew in a diagonal formation that stretched about five miles from the first to last craft, and they bobbed about erratically,’ said Mr Watson.
‘He estimated that they travelled faster than 1,000 miles per hour as they flew from Mount Rainier to Mount Adams.’
When describing the sight to newspaper reporters, Mr Arnold said it was ‘like a saucer would if you skipped it across the water.’
This, said Mr Watson, reveals that the term flying saucer came from the description of the movement of the craft rather than their appearance.
‘Explanations from mirages, secret aircraft to the flight of pelicans have all been used to try to explain his sighting but it still remains a mystery,’ he added.

The once-top secret files were previously only available by visiting the National Archives in Washington

NOTE: Could the release of these photographs be the reason why the CIA has now suddenly claimed responsibility for all of the UFO sightings in the 1950s.

CIA reveals the truth behind UFOs

From: news.com
America’s Central Intelligence Agency has used the end-of-the-year silly season to finally come clean about UFOs. Anyone hoping for little green men will be disappointed, though — the CIA is claiming responsibility.
Tweeting about its most popular stories of the year, the CIA named a 1998 report linking its activities in the 1950s to UFO sightings.
#1 most read on our #Bestof2014 list: Reports of unusual activity in the skies in the ’50s? It was us.http://t.co/BKr81M5OUN (PDF 9.26MB)
— CIA (@CIA) December 29, 2014
The report, ‘The CIA and the U-2 Program, 1954-1974’, written by Gregory Pedlow and Donald Welzenbach, outlines the CIA’s involvement in the development of the U-2 spy plane.
It explains how the testing of the planes led to a massive increase in UFO reports.
“High-altitude testing of the U-2 soon led to an unexpected side effect — a tremendous increase in reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs),” it says in a section devoted to the issue.
The reason? No, not swamp gas.
In the mid-1950s, most commercial airliners flew between 10,000 and 20,000 feet, while military aircraft such as B-47s and B57s flew below 40,000 feet.
“[UFO] reports were most prevalent in the early evening hours from pilots of airliners flying from east to west. When the sun dropped below the horizon of an airliner flying at 20,000 feet, the plane was in darkness,” the authors explain.
“But, if a U-2 was airborne in the vicinity of the airliner at the same time, its horizon from an altitude of 60,000 feet was considerably more distant, and, being so high in the sky, its silver wings would catch and reflect the rays of the sun and appear to the airliner pilot, 40,000 feet below, to be fiery objects.
“Consequently, once U-2s started flying at altitudes above 60,000 feet, air-traffic controllers began receiving increasing numbers of UFO reports.”
The report adds that at the time, no one believed manned flight was possible above 60,000 feet, and so didn’t expect to see objects so high in the sky.
The high volume of UFO sightings from airline pilots and ground-based observers writing to the Air Force led to the establishment of Operation Blue Book, which collected all reports for investigation.
According to the paper, Blue Book investigators regularly called on the CIA’s project staff in Washington to check reported UFO sightings against U-2 flight logs.
It says U-2 and later OXCART flights accounted for more than half of all UFO reports during the late 1950s and most of the 1960s, although investigators could not reveal to the letter writers the true cause of the sightings.
