The previously classified files were this week released for the first time by the National Archives and contain more than 8500 pages revealing how UFO sightings and alien abductions have been discussed by the world’s most powerful governments.
The document haul, which is the largest government file release of its kind in the UK, include eyewitness accounts of unidentified flying objects across Britain, Norway and even Australia.
One member of the British public, whose name has been removed from the file, wrote to the Ministry of Defence in 2001 demanding they investigate an alleged US and Australian cover-up of flying objects seen at the Pine Gap space station near Alice Springs.
Documents in the file claim footage taken from the Space Shuttle Discovery Mission on September 15, 1991, show “what appears to be around a dozen objects moving in the area of the orbiter” as it travels above Pine Gap.
“Suddenly, the objects stop moving and there is a `flash’ seen and all the objects then move off on different routes,” the document says.
Seconds later, two streaks shoot out from the earth.
The document then says NASA later explained the “objects” as debris illuminated by the sun.
In a letter to the person who called for the inquiry into the sightings, the MoD admitted they could only offer a “disappointing reply”.
“There are some aspects, which for reasons of national security are just not open for discussion,” an MoD official wrote. In regards to the sightings and activities at Pine Gap, the MoD official replied: “We can neither confirm nor deny UK interest in intelligence that emanates from this station”.
In another file, an insistent London mother-of-three claimed she spent two decades being visited by “the lights”.
Calling herself a “have seen”, or someone who has met aliens, she said she had her first encounter with “the lights” in the middle of her divorce.
In a letter dated 1998, the woman, whose name has been removed, writes that aliens chose her second husband – an Australian man.
“He is Australian (white) and I am Barbadian (black); quite opposite to each other,” she writes.
“We were being brought together to represent the Unity between the Opposite Forces – the positive and negative forces.
“We were to represent the coming together (unity) of the black and the white people.”
At the time of the letter, the woman had been happily married to her Australian husband for 16 years and they had a teenage daughter and were continuing their work for “the lights” by uniting the human race.
The woman stressed that extraterrestrial beings were revealing themselves to humans so abundantly “because something significant is about to happen to the human race. Ignore them at your peril”.
