1.     Project Sign – An evaluation of the situation 1947 – 1949

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Project Sign was active from 1947 to 1949. Some of the personnel, including director Robert Sneider, favored the extraterrestrial hypothesis as the best explanation for UFO reports. They prepared the Estimate of the Situation arguing their case. This hypothesis was ultimately rejected by high-ranking officers, and Project Sign was dissolved and replaced by Project Grudge.

Project Sign was an official U.S. government study of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) undertaken by the United States Air Force and active for most of 1948. Project Sign’s final report, published in early 1949, stated that while some UFOs appeared to represent actual aircraft there was not enough data to determine their origin.

Project Sign was first disclosed to the public in 1956 via the book The Report on Unidentified Flying Objects by retired Air Force Captain Edward J. Ruppelt. The full files for Sign were declassified in 1961.

2.     Project Grudge  1948 – 1952 (2)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Project Grudge was a short-lived project by the U.S. Air Force to investigate unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Grudge succeeded Project Sign in February, 1949, and was then followed by Project Blue Book. The project formally ended in December 1949, but continued in a minimal capacity until late 1951.

.

————————————————

.

Towards the end of year 1948 with official action from 1949, the name Project Sign was changed to Project Grudge. And with the change of name came a new agenda, which was to explain any report and disclose how all UFO sightings had been solved, period. And apparently widen the thought of ridicule among the population about UFOs and the extraterrestrial hypophysis.

The secrecy among the military governors continued. Air Material Command and ATIC simply blocked information about UFOs from his colleagues, and even the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) were kept out in the cold. FBI sent out the document “Protection of Vital Installations” to the Army G-2, Naval Intelligence Service, Ministry of Justice’s special investigation service (OSI) and President Hoover himself, with the declaration that both the Army and Air Force intelligence officers consider UFO information as top secret.

Shortly after it was held a secret conference at the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory regarding UFOs where no representatives from Project Grudge attended, which actually indicates how insignificant this project was internally. The intention of Project Grudge was to disorient the public and actively guide the media who nonetheless insisted on writing about the topic.

Project Grudge issued its only formal report in August 1949 over 600 pages long.

3.     Project Blue Book  1952 – 1956 (2)

bbook

From History.com

In June 1947, while flying his small plane, businessman and civilian pilot Kenneth Arnold reported seeing nine objects moving at high speeds through the skies over Washington’s Mount Rainier. Widely publicized reports of Arnold’s experience, followed by an increasing number of reported UFO sightings, led the U.S. Air Force to begin an investigation into the sightings, called Operation Sign, in 1948. The initial investigation resulted in the formation of Project Blue Book in 1952; that project became the longest running of the U.S. government’s official inquiries into UFO sightings, compiling reports on more than 12,000 sightings or related events from 1952 to its dismantling in 1969.

4.     Project Blue Book  – Special Report 14.  1952 – 1954

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Project Blue Book Special Report No. 14 was their massive statistical analysis of Blue Book cases to date, some 3200 by the time the report was completed in 1954, after Ruppelt had left Blue Book. Even today, it represents the largest such study ever undertaken.

 

The main results of the statistical analysis were:

* About 69% of the cases were judged known or identified (38% were considered conclusively identified while 31% were still “doubtfully” explained); about 9% fell into insufficient information. About 22% were deemed “unknown”, down from the earlier 28% value of the Air Force studies.

* The higher the quality of the case, the more likely it was to be classified unknown. 35% of the excellent cases were deemed unknowns, as opposed to only 18% of the poorest cases. This was the exact opposite of the result predicted by skeptics, who usually argued unknowns were poorer quality cases involving unreliable witnesses that could be solved if only better information were available.

* In all six studied sighting characteristics, the unknowns were different from the knowns at a highly statistically significant level: in five of the six measures the odds of knowns differing from unknowns by chance was only 1% or less. When all six characteristics were considered together, the probability of a match between knowns and unknowns was less than 1 in a billion.

.

Category/Case Quality All Excellent Good Doubtful Poor
Astronomical 22% 24% 23% 19% 23%
Aircraft 22% 19% 22% 25% 16%
Balloon 15% 12% 17% 17% 13%
Light phenomena 2.2% .9% 2.4% 2.9% 1.1%
Birds 1.0% 0.9% 1.0% 1.2% 0.7%
Clouds, dust, etc. 0.4% 0% 1.0% 0.4% 0%

5.    Project: 1947 – 1946 (2)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ghost rockets (Swedish: Spökraketer, also called Scandinavian ghost rockets) were rocket- or missile-shaped unidentified flying objects sighted in 1946, mostly in Sweden and nearby countries.

The first reports of ghost rockets were made on February 26, 1946, by Finnish observers.[1] About 2,000 sightings were logged between May and December 1946, with peaks on 9 and 11 August 1946. Two hundred sightings were verified with radar returns, and authorities recovered physical fragments which were attributed to ghost rockets.

6.    Robertson Panel – 1953

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Robertson Panel was a scientific committee which met in January 1953. The Panel arose from a recommendation to the Intelligence Advisory Committee (IAC) in December 1952 from a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) review of the U.S. Air Force investigation into unidentified flying objects, project Blue Book. The CIA review itself was in response to widespread reports of unidentified flying objects, especially in the Washington, D.C. area during the summer of 1952. The panel was briefed on U.S. military activities and intelligence; hence the report was originally classified Secret. Later declassified, the Robertson Panel’s report concluded that UFOs were not a direct threat to national security, but could pose an indirect threat by overwhelming standard military communications due to public interest in the subject.

Most UFO reports, they concluded, could be explained as misidentification of mundane aerial objects, and the remaining minority could, in all likelihood, be similarly explained with further study. The Robertson Panel recommended that a public education campaign should be undertaken in order to reduce public interest in the subject, minimising the risk of swamping Air Defence systems with reports at critical times, and that civilian UFO groups should be monitored.

The Robertson Panel’s report was contained within a larger internal CIA report by F C Durant, a CIA officer who served as Secretary to the Panel, which summarises the activities of the panel and its conclusions. This wider document is commonly referred to as the Durant Report.

7.     Project Magnet  1950 – 1962  (2)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Project Magnet was an unidentified flying object (UFO) study program established by the Canadian Department of Transport (DOT) on December 2, 1950, under the direction of Wilbert B. Smith, senior radio engineer for the DOT’s Broadcast and Measurements Section. It was formally active until mid-1954.

.
_____________________________
.

From bibliotecapleyades.net

The genesis of Project Magnet can be largely traced back to a memorandum of 21 November 1950 that Wilbert B. Smith, an official with the Canadian Government’s Department of Communications (and who held a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering), wrote to the Department of Transport a TOP SECRET MEMO seeking funding for his proposed research. As a part of the evidence he had been given in the states he listed five items.

 

1) The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States Government, rating higher than even the H-bomb.

2) Flying saucers exist.

3) Their modus operandi is unknown but concentrated effort is being made by a small group headed by Vannevar Bush.

4) The entire matter is considered by the United States authorities to be of tremendous significance.

5) The United States authorities are investigating along quite a number of lines, which might possibly be related to the saucers such as mental phenomena. 

According to Smith:

“The existence of a different technology is borne out by the investigations which are being carried on at the present time in relation to flying saucers.”

8.     The Operação Prato (“Operation Saucer”)  1970 – 1979

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Operação Prato (Portuguese for “Operation Plate) was the first operation by the FAB (Força Aérea Brasileira) focused mainly on UFOs, from an event that occurred, known as the Colares UFO Flap. It was carried out between 1977 and 1978.[1][2][3][4][5][6]

 

Precedent events
In 1977, numerous UFOs were seen in the Brazilian city of Colares, Pará. The UFOs allegedly fired light beams at people,[4][6] causing injuries and sucking blood from 400 witnesses.[3] Due to the shapes of scars found on witnesses, local residents named them “Chupa Chupa”[3] (literally Sucker-Sucker, not to be confused with theChupacabra).[7] After a rise in local concern, José Ildone Favacho Soeiro, the mayor of the city, requested help from the Air Force,[8] organizing night vigils[2] and using fireworks to keep the lights away.[4]

There have also been reports of UFOs in the nearby city of Vigia.[9]

.

The Operation
The operation was commanded by Captain Uyrangê Bolivar Soares Nogueira de Hollanda Lima.[3] During late 1977, several pictures of strange lights were recorded.[2][3]In approximately four months, Uyrangê and his team managed to reestablish peace and order in the region. The operation was closed with no proofs of unusual phenomena.[1]

First published on paolaharris

Over 1,400 pages of Brazilian previously classified UFO documents have been released thanks to the efforts of the Brazilian UFO Researchers Committee (CBU), through the campaign UFOs: Freedom of Information Now, started in 2004 and articulated by the Brazilian UFO Magazine. This last one has been the biggest disclosure ever in Brazil.

The PDF files of 12 envelopes or folders is now released. I recommend read below a summary of the contents of each envelope or folder and pay special attention to this one: Folder 10 – 1978, with 195 pages of Operation Saucer material.

9.     Project Second Storey

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Project Second Storey, also known as Project Flying Saucers and also Project Theta, was a committee set up on April 22, 1952 in Canada, to deal with material concerning Flying Saucers. It became available to the public in 1968.

In 1952, in connection with the establishment of Project Magnet by Wilbert Smith at the Department of Transport, the committee was formed by members of other government agencies and dedicated solely to dealing with “flying saucer” reports. This committee was sponsored by the Defence Research Board. Its main purpose was to collect, catalogue and correlate data from UFO sighting reports.[1]

10.    RS/33 cabinet – Gabinetto RS/33′ (Cabinet Research and Espionage/33)

From ufoevidence.org

The discovery of some documents from the fascist era of Italy opens up new horizons for research on UFOs, and compels students of this subject to amend the official history of the flying saucers. Under “Il Duce”, Mussolini, there was a secret government commission of enquiry, known as the RS/33 cabinet, which studied the UFOs.

11.    Institute 22

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Institute 22 organization was created in 1978, by the Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Defense in the Soviet Union. Its mission was to investigate UFOs in the Soviet Union. Institute 22 was a secret organization for 13 years (until the fall of the Soviet Union), and can be compared to the American Project Blue Book.

During its existence a great number of soldiers, sailors and pilots of the Red Army were given orders to watch for UFOs and other unexplained events, without any further information. The orders could be handed out quite easily since the Ministry of Defense was involved – thus no questions could be asked.

Institute 22 have investigated around 3000 UFO reports. About 5-10% of all cases remained unexplained when the organization dissolved.

14. /15.      Cometa Report  / UFOs & Defense: What must we be prepared for?  

From ufoevidence.org

In 1999 an important document was published in France entitled,“UFOs and Defense: What must we be prepared for?” (“Les Ovni Et La Defense: A quoi doit-on se préparer?”)(2)(3)(4). This ninety-page report is the result of an in-depth study of UFOs, covering many aspects of the subject, especially questions of national defense.

The study was carried out over several years by an independent group of former “auditors” at the Institute of Advanced Studies for National Defense, or IHEDN, and by qualified experts from various fields. Before its public release, it has been sent to French President Jacques Chirac and to Prime Minister Lionel Jospin.

The report is prefaced by General Bernard Norlain of the Air Force, former Director of IHEDN, and it begins with a preamble by André Lebeau, former President of the National Center for Space Studies (Centre National D’études Spatiales), or CNES, the French equivalent of NASA. The group itself, collective author of the report, is an association of experts, many of whom are or have been auditors of IHEDN, and it is presided over by General Denis Letty of the Air Force, former auditor (FA) of IHEDN.

16.    Flying Saucer Working Party  (FSWP)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flying Saucer Working Party (or FSWP) was the name of the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) first “official study into UFOs”, which has its roots in a study commissioned in 1950 by the MOD’s then Chief Scientific Adviser, the great radar scientist Sir Henry Tizard. As a result of his insistence that UFO sightings should not be dismissed without some form of proper scientific study, the Department set up what writer Nick Pope has described as “arguably the most marvellously-named committee in the history of the civil service”.

Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Henry Tizard duly authorised the setting up of a small study team to look into the phenomenon.  This is the group’s final report, which was released to Georgina Bruni and a handful of other researchers in 2001 by the MOD, following requests made under the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.  A detailed commentary and analysis of this material can be found in the Official History article on this site (1).

17.    Project Twinkle – Green fireballs  1949 – 1951

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Green fireballs are a type of unidentified flying object which have been sighted in the sky since the late 1940s. Early sightings primarily occurred in the southwestern United States, particularly in New Mexico. They were once of notable concern to the US government because they were often clustered around sensitive research and military installations, such as Los Alamos and Sandia National Laboratory, then Sandia base.

Meteor expert Dr. Lincoln LaPaz headed much of the investigation into the fireballs on behalf of the military. LaPaz’s conclusion was that the objects displayed too many anomalous characteristics to be a type of meteor

.

“Normal fireballs do not appear green, they fall in the trajectory forced on them by gravity, are generally noisy as a freight train, and leave meteorites where they hit. The green New Mexican species does none of these things. Neither do the green fireballs appear to be electrostatic phenomena—they move too regularly and too fast.”
Dr. Lincoln LaPaz – Astronomer from the University of New Mexico and a pioneer in the study of meteors. Interviewed Life Magazine, April 7, 1952.
The UFO story in this issue included UFO sightings from prominent astronomers, and alerted the public that UFOs was considered by many as a credible issue.

.

— >  The government brought in Meteor expert Dr. Lincoln LaPaz

.
————————————
.

During 1949 a new wave of UFOs became reality and the US defense establishment studied the wave intensely. These UFOs had a different character and became known as the Green Fireballs. Green Fireballs were observed by most intelligence officers at Kirtland AFB, Air Defense Command and also by some of the most distinguished scientists at the Los Alamos laboratory.

In August 1949 Project Grudge wrote its latest report and rationalized all the UFO sightings with mass hysteria, misinterpretations of conventional objects committed by “psychopathological” people. Actually, less than 2% of the observations were in fact been revealed as cheating and / or psychological reasons. The report also suggested to decrease the UFO-investigation to “accommodate the contemplated attitude change”. This report had no scientific value, but had great value as a administrative tool for the American military intelligence against the public during the Cold War. Air Material Command excluded from now on Green Fireballs of UFO reports, leaving this part of the UFO phenomenon to the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratory who then established Project Twinkle (1).

18.      UFOs in classical antiquity – NASA

From nasa.gov

Stothers, R., 2007: Unidentified flying objects in classical antiquity. Classical J., 103, 79-92.

A combined historical and scientific approach is applied to ancient reports of what might today be called unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Many conventionally explicable phenomena can be weeded out, leaving a small residue of puzzling reports. These fall neatly into the same categories as modern UFO reports, suggesting that the UFO phenomenon, whatever it may be due to, has not changed much over two millennia.

.

“There nonetheless remains a small residue of puzzling accounts, and regardless of what interpretation one places on them, these constitute a phenomenon that spans centuries of time and widely different cultures.”

From ufoevidence.org

In 1976, Marcia Smith, a specialist in aerospace with the Congressional Research Service, prepared a comprehensive report on UFOs entitled “The UFO Enigma.” It was revised and updated by George D. Havas in 1983 into a 143-page Report No. 83-205 SPR. It contains sections on types of encounters, witness credibility, pre-1947 accounts, history of Air Force UFO investigations, international perspectives, appendices with selected case summaries, etc. “The UFO Enigma” provides a well researched and unbiased overview of the phenomenon.

20.      Brookings Report – 1960

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs, often referred to as “the Brookings Report,” was a 1960 report commissioned by NASA and created by the Brookings Institution in collaboration with NASA’s Committee on Long-Range Studies. It was submitted to the House Committee on Science and Astronautics of the United States House of Representatives in the 87th United States Congress on April 18, 1961. It was entered into the Congressional Record and can be found in any library possessing the Congressional Record for that year.

The report has become noted for one short section titled, “The implications of a discovery of extraterrestrial life,” which examines the potential implications of such a discovery on public attitudes and values. The section briefly considers possible public reactions to some possible scenarios for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, stressing a need for further research in this area. It recommends continuing studies to determine the likely social impact of such a discovery and its effects on public attitudes, including study of the question of how leadership should handle information about such a discovery and under what circumstances leaders might or might not find it advisable to withhold such information from the public. The significance of this section of the report is a matter of controversy. Persons who believe that extraterrestrial life has already been confirmed and that this information is being withheld by government from the public sometimes turn to this section of the report as support for their view. Frequently cited passages from this section of the report are drawn both from its main body and from its footnotes.

22.      SETKA AN – Petrozavodsk phenomenon (1977)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Petrozavodsk phenomenon was a series of celestial events of disputed nature on September 20, 1977. The sightings were reported over a vast territory from Copenhagen and Helsinki on the west to Vladivostok on the east.[1] The phenomenon is named after the city of Petrozavodsk in Russia (then in the Soviet Union), where a glowing object that showered the city with numerous rays was widely reported.

Official government letters from northern European countries to Anatoly Aleksandrov, President of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, expressed concern about whether the observed phenomenon was caused by Soviet weapons testing and whether it constitutes a threat to the region’s environment.[2] Since 1977,[3] the phenomenon has been often, though not universally, attributed to the launch of the Soviet satellite Kosmos-955. In the same year, a preliminary report for the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, which contained a vast body of visual observations, radiolocation reports, physical measurements and accompanying meteorological data, concluded that “based on the available data, it is unfeasible to satisfactorily understand the observed phenomenon”.[4] The Petrozavodsk phenomenon contributed to the creation of Setka AN, a Soviet research program for anomalous atmospheric phenomena.

In the early Soviet reports the Petrozavodsk phenomenon was referred to as the phenomenon of 20 September 1977.[6] Later it became known as the Petrozavodsk phenomenon. Sometimes it is also called the Petrozavodsk incident[2] or the Petrozavodsk miracle.[6] The phrase “unidentified flying object” in the Soviet Union was substituted by the term “anomalous phenomenon” for research purposes.

Most sightings occurred between 01:00 and 1:20 a.m. UTC, when at least 48 unidentified objects reportedly appeared in the atmosphere.[7] Several sightings occurred before, at 1 a.m. local time over Medvezhyegorsk, at 2:30 a.m. over Loukhi and at 3 a.m. over Kovdor and Palanga (Lithuania).[1] From approximately 3 a.m. to 3:25 an unidentified luminous object has been observed by the supervising personnel of the Leningrad maritime trade port.[8] At 3:30 a flying object, surrounded by a luminous coat, was reportedly seen by the crew of the Soviet fishing vessel Primorsk, which was departing from the Primorsk harbour.[4] The object appeared to move noiselessly from the east, and near Primorsk it abruptly changed its direction to north.

23.      Key To The Extraterrestrial Messages – By the National Security Agency (NSA)

From wikileaks-forum.com

National Security Agency (NSA) documents finally become relevant and meaningful in 2011, NSA admits to ET contact and provides some UFO disclosure but reluctantly.

This is truly blockbuster information.  No one from the government has stepped in front of the cameras and come clean about ET reality as yet.   But, here we have the most secret intelligence organization in the U.S.A. , the National Security Agency, disclosing openly that there has been contact with intelligent extraterrestrials.   Not only that, they have decoded their messages.

On October 21, 2004, the NSA approved for release to the public a portion of their NSA Journal Vol. XIV No. 1.  So why would this report be relevant or meaningful in April 2011. Because the NSA did not release it into public information until April 21, 2011.  Though cleared for release, the NSA had been stonewalling it along with hundreds of other NSA documents about contact with UFOs and extraterrestrials until they lost the lawsuit brought by Peter Gersten, a lawyer from Arizona.  When they well and truly lost, the judge’s order had to be carried out, and the documents had to be released.  Read more.

25.      The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations

irst page of the presentation

From openminds.tv

The latest release of Edward Snowden’s leaked NSA documents includes a PowerPoint from a British communications department regarding online covert operations and deception. A few of the slides inexplicably include pictures of UFOs.

The documents were released by The Intercept, a website created to report on NSA documents provided by Snowden. The presentation with the UFO pictures was created by the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). It is titled “The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations.”

The UFO pics are found on slides 35 – 37, in a section called “Influence and Information Operations.” It is difficult to decipher why they are there, except perhaps to discuss online memes, or misidentifications. The Daily Grail speculates that the images may be there for reasons “from pointing out people’s belief systems, through to them possibly being part of actual psychological operations (psy-ops).”

The pictures include a UFO photograph from Redbud, Illinois taken in 1950, a screenshot of a UFO video captured by Arturo Robles Gil in Mexico, and a picture of an alleged UFO that is suspected to simply be a bird and its droppings. Read more.

Condon Comittee
(U.S.)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Condon Committee was the informal name of the University of Colorado UFO Project, a group funded by the United States Air Force from 1966 to 1968 at the University of Colorado to study unidentified flying objects under the direction of physicist Edward Condon. The result of its work, formally titled Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects, and known as the Condon Report, appeared in 1968.

BAS  The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences
(Bulgaria)

Institute for Space Studies recently held its first official conference on the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence, Prof. Lachezar Filipov told the Nova TV breakfast show. Until now this topic was sort of banned among the scientists,”    he said.“But the growing public interest, not only in Bulgaria, but abroad, made BAS believe that we must respond to such phenomena.” (1)

GEIPAN – Unidentified Aerospace Phenomenon Research And Information Group
(France)
(Groupe d’Études et d’Informations sur les Phénomènes Aérospatiaux Non-identifiés)

 

GEIPAN (sept. 2005-), formerly known as GEPAN (1977-1988) and SEPRA (1988-2004), is a unit of the French Space Agency CNES whose brief is to investigate unidentified aerospace phenomena (UAP) and make its findings available to the public.

The French Gendarmerie was instructed to channel data from reports of UFOsightings to SEPRA, which therefore was in a position to draw on a large database of such events. In cases where physical traces appeared to be present, SEPRA could call on the technical resources of CNES to perform a thorough scientific investigation. A famous example of such an investigation was in the Trans-en-Provence Case.

In March 2007, GEIPAN started to make its archives available online to everyone.

Of the 1600 cases registered since 1954, nearly 25% are classified as “type D”, meaning that “despite good or very good data and credible witnesses, we are confronted with something we can’t explain”, says Jacques Patenet, Director of CNES, France. (1).

CEIFO – The Ecuadorian committee for the study of the UFO phenomena
(Ecuador)

Jaime Rodriguez spent 22 years to convince the military that the UFO presence should become official public knowledge. With the support of the media an Ecuadorian government group was set up in order to gather intelligence data on the UFO phenomena which was considered to be potentially vital to humanity. In April 2005 CEIFO (the Ecuadorian committee for the study of the UFO phenomena) was formed.

The creation of the committee saw the Ecuadorian military working with civilians in order to produce a credible report aiming to end the secrecy regarding the UFO presence (1).

DIFAA – The Department of Investigation of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena
(Peru)

Peru’s air force is reopening an office responsible for investigating UFOs due to “increased sightings of anomalous aerial phenomena” in the country’s skies.

The Department of Investigation of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (DIFAA), first created in 2001, is being revived after lying formant for five years because more UFO sightings have been reported to the media, said Colonel Julio Vucetich, head of the air force’s aerospace interests division.

The unit will bring together sociologists, archaeologists, astronomers, meteorologists and air force personnel to analyse these events, Vucetich told the Guardian. “Many people don’t report UFO sightings because they fear they will be labelled mad or made fun of, but nowadays with new technology – cellphone videos, Facebook, Twitter – they can be much more open, without feeling that they are the only ones who have seen what they’ve seen,” he said (1).

PAGASA – Philippines Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration
(Philippines)
A government agency under the Department of Science & Technology (DOST)

The Manila Times, on its issue dated September 14, 2000 revealed that PAGASA- the Philippine government’s “weather bureau”, has opened its files on “UFO Reports” to the public. Consequently, the published report made its way to the various internet sites, one of which is shown below.

A team from the Philippines Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) has admitted actively participating in the investigation of what is known as Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

UFOs or unidentified flying objects, in particular, Elmer Escosia, team leader, said they opened files to reveal what they discovered so far instead of keeping the information to themselves. (1)
