• From the early 1950s until 2009, a department in the UK Ministry of Defence documented and investigated reports of UFOs. These documents, many of which were gathered by The Royal Air Force, had been sealed for 61 years and have been released following a Freedom of Information request. The files offer a head-spinning account of strange objects all shapes and sizes, detailed in over 620 sightings across the UK between 1959 and 2009.

• The very last UFO report published online by the MoD dates to 2009, and covers sightings that took place that year. A report dated January 2009 painted a vivid picture of a “a silver disc-shaped light”. Another one, in June that year, made mention of “up to 20 orange and red glowing lights”. In September, a witness described “three blazing gold orbs in a diagonal line in the sky”.

• One of the UK regions particularly noted for frequent “UFO sightings” over the years has been Lincolnshire, in the East Midlands. Lincolnshire was “a busy hub” for UFOs according to the MoD reports. Northern Lincolnshire witnessed more than 30 reports filed by the MoD over the years including 13 sightings in just one year.

• One Lincolnshire account described seeing a UFO with “a big red dome” and “suspicious” white lights, moving in a straight line. After being “stationary for some time, it … started moving making small erratic movements”. Another account described a quarter-of-a-mile long UFO with “three large green windows”. Yet another account depicts a “silver, cigar shaped object” with sharp “pointed wings”, a red light on one side and a green light on the other. After hovering, it swiftly disappeared.

• According to the declassified MoD files, London was at the top of the list with 54 sightings, followed by Kent (30) and Lancashire (24). The official documents are now available to read on the UK Government’s website (see here).

UK Government is Withholding Three UFO Files, Former Ministry of Defence Employee Claims

by Shivali Best             May 9, 2018               (mirror.co.uk)

• In 2008, the British government started to release its UFO files to the public in the hopes of being as transparent as possible. The release process was expected to take three years at most. According to Nick Pope (pictured above), a former employee at the UK Ministry of Defence, three files still haven’t been made public. “I’m extremely disappointed that ten years after the release of the first files, the project is still incomplete,” said Pope.

• Mr Pope noted that the files have been sent backwards and forwards between the MoD and the British National Archives at least twice, adding to people’s suspicions. “A lot of people think the government is covering up the truth about UFOs, and this unfortunate situation is only adding fuel to the fire with regard to these conspiracy theories.”

• Mr Pope added that while he and his colleagues took the issue of UFOs seriously, they were often forced to ‘spin’ the subject for the media, ‘disingenuously stating that the subject was of “no defence significance”‘.

 

While UFOs are often seen as objects that belong in the imagination of conspiracy theorists, the British Government has taken them very seriously for years.

In 2008, the Government started to release its UFO files to the public in the hopes of being as transparent as possible.
But while the release process was expected to take three years at most, three files still haven’t been made public, according to Nick Pope, a former employee at the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Mr Pope said: “Having worked on the Ministry of Defence’s UFO project and having written many of the documents that have already been released, I’m extremely disappointed that ten years after the release of the first files, the project is still incomplete.”
