The United States Air Force began Project Blue Book, the third study of its kind, in 1952 with two objectives: Determine if UFOs were a threat to national security, and scientifically analyze UFO-related data.

When the study finally ended in 1970, it had collected 12,618 UFO reports. It was concluded that the majority of UFO sightings were nothing more than misidentified natural phenomena or conventional aircraft.

The Air Force concluded that:

  • 1. No UFO reported, investigated and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security.
  • 2. There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as “unidentified” represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge.
  • 3. There was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as “unidentified” were extraterrestrial vehicles.

Project Blue Book Unknowns

When the Project Blue Book study came to a close, the Air Force freely admitted to 701 investigated UFO cases which remained unidentified. After a thorough evaluation, some researchers think that number could actually be as high as 4,800 reports due to untenable explanations.

The Black Vault is run by John Greenewald, who has been submitting Freedom of Information Act requests on UFO incidents since he was a teenager. He has gathered, converted and archived the largest repository of such documents, totaling over 1 million pages.

Sculpture Being Installed to Mark Rendlesham UFO Incident

Sculpture being installed at the site of the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident

A sculpture is being installed at the site of the Rendlesham Forest UFO incident in Suffolk. The incident, which occurred in December of 1980, is now regarded as one of the biggest UFO mysteries in the UK, if not worldwide.

Over a period of three nights, dozens of US serviceman from the nearby United States Air Force Base witnessed lights in the forest. Believing it to be a downed aircraft, they entered the forest to investigate. They described what they found as a strange glowing object, metallic in appearance, with colored lights. It had landed in the forest on triangular landing gear, which left impressions visible on the ground the following morning.

The sculpture is being placed in the clearing where the craft had landed, now part of the Forestry Commission’s UFO Trail. It was designed based on sketches and descriptions of the incident, including the symbols copied from the body of the craft by eyewitness Sgt. Jim Penniston, who claimed to have actually touched the craft before it flew away.
