UFO reports declassified: 130,000 pages of declassified UFO records now online

eCanadaNow, staff: NEW YORK – Recently the files of Project Blue Book, a once secret United States Air Force project that sought to carefully document reported sightings of unidentified flying objects, were made public and declassified for the first time in decades. Project Blue Book was launched in 1947 and was over by late 1969, after amassing over 130,000 documents on some 12,618 alleged UFO sightings by military members and civilians.
The Air Force project was based out of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio and ran from 1947 to 1969. Through the project, the Air Force amassed a total of 12,618 recorded sightings. Out of that total, 701 incidents remain “unidentified.” A University of Colorado report called the “Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects” found that “there has been no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as ‘unidentified’ are extraterrestrial vehicles,” according to a 1985 Air Force fact sheet. Project Blue Book officially ended on Dec. 17, 1969.
