The above image, titled simply ‘Winter 1951’, was taken in New Zealand. While the photographer believed this to be a flying saucer, the USAF concluded that it was in fact a lenticular cloud.
The files relate to USAF investigations from 1947-1969, are available now in 130,000 pages of fully searchable archives in the Project Blue Book Collection.
More than 700 cases (5.5 per cent of the files) in Project Blue Book remain unsolved.
According to Military Times:
UFO enthusiast John Greenewald has spent nearly two decades filing Freedom of Information Act requests for the government’s files on UFOs and other phenomena. On Jan. 12, Greenewald posted the Blue Book files — as well as files on Blue Book’s 1940s-era predecessors, Project Sign and Project Grudge — on his online database, The Black Vault.
Project Blue Book was based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. Between 1947 and 1969, the Air Force recorded 12,618 sightings of strange phenomena — 701 of which remain “unidentified.”
