‘Je croi jai vu un UFO. Au secor, au secour, au secour.’ In a welcome move, the government of France has announced that it will be publishing some of its archives; with the caveat that the identities of the original ‘reporters’ will be kept secret. This, we are told, to stop the poor souls from being badgered to death by crazed Ufologists. From MSNBC:
‘The French space agency said it will publish its archive of UFO sightings and other phenomena online, but will keep the names of those who reported them off the site to protect them from pestering by space fanatics.
Jacques Arnould, an official at the National Space Studies Centre, said the French database of around 1,600 incidents would go live in late January or mid-February.
He said the CNES had been collecting statements and documents for almost 30 years to archive and study them.’
