“We decided to bring some documents to the attention, both skeptics and believers will find this interesting,” said the CIA on release of its UFO files (1).
Similar to Top Secret Writers’ report on the CIA claiming that UFO sightings that took place in the 1950s was because of the CIA, the US intelligence agency admits that most of the pieces of its new UFO report are mostly from the 1940s and 1950s (2).
Take a look at some of the documents that CIA shrewdly refers to as the documents “Mulder would love to get his hands on.”
Flying Saucers Reported over East Germany, Spain and North Africa
On July, 9 1952, the CIA reported about a so-called sighting of UFOs made East Germany (3).
According to the report, an object “resembling a huge flying pan” with a 15-meter diameter landed in a forest clearing in the Soviet zone of Germany.
Another interesting report taken from the CIA’s trove of UFO sightings, took place on May 21, 1952 when a man claims to have seen a “strange object flying at high speed…. About 2,000 metres above ground, and leaving a wide spoke trail,” above Barcelona (4).
Unlike ‘conventional’ flying saucers this UFO was described as rocket-shaped.
The same document reports an incident involving many inhabitants of Sousse, Tunisia witnessing a flying object “travelling a dizzy speed from west to east and emitting pale green light.”
Flying Saucers over Belgium Congo
This report dates to March 29, 1952 when two “fiery disks” were spotted over the Uranium mines in the southern region of the Belgian Congo (5).
According to the report, the “disks glided in elegant curves and changed their position many times, so that from below they sometimes appeared as plates, ovals, and simply slices.”
In what reportedly lasted for around 10 to 20 minutes, the sighting was accompanied by a “hissing and buzzing sound audible to the onlookers below.”
Under what is listed as documents that “Scully would love to get her hands on”, includes an office memorandum sent by the CIA on March 15, 1949 titled “Flying Saucers”.
The memo includes a number of points related to the sighting of UFOs, such as no suggestion had been noted that there is a possibility that many of the UFO objects may be free meteorological sounding balloons.
So now the “truth is out there” with the CIA offering a snippet of its once-classified UFO documents. What are your thoughts on the so-called sightings of UFOs during the 1940s and 1950s?
