UK National Archives has a UFO files Section

For my job I come across some very strange documents from time to time. And since I’m a very curious person, when I see something that catches my attention, I have to investigate.

To give you a little back ground of what I do, I work for a document delivery company. We receive requests, and then it is my job to go looking for a copyright cleared document. Yesterday was definitely a day for strange requests, and what brought me to this little discovery.

First, I had a request for a document having to do with Obsessive Compulsive Disorders in dogs. I had no idea dogs could have OCD.

Then, I was looking for a document that is in the United Kingdom’s National Archive. On the right hand side of the page, I noticed a listed of most popular collection. In the top five was “UFO files”. I just giggled to myself and my co-worker asked me what was so funny, so of course I had to show her.

Apparently UFO sightings in the UK are very popular, and the government has released a great number of documents having to do with these sightings, instead of simply hiding them away and attributing the sightings to “weather balloons”.

Anyway, I thought this was an interesting resource for UFO enthusiasts and worth sharing! Enjoy!
