| Unexplained Flying Objects (UFOs) In 1947, a rash of sightings of unexplained flying objects (UFOs) swept America. Although the newly formed U.S. Air Force was the primary investigator of these sightings, the FBI received many reports and worked for a time with the Air Force to investigate these matters. This release details the FBI's role in investigating such reports between 1947 and 1954.

| Project Blue Book Originally Project Blue Book was the Air Force name for a project that investigated UFO reports between 1947 and 1969. In 1989, an organization calling itself “The New Project Blue Book” contacted the FBI. This file consists of correspondence concerning this organization.
|Guy Hottel was a Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office. The information concerning Mr. Hottel is in regard to a March 22, 1950, memo he sent to the Director concerning flying saucers.
| Majestic 12 In 1988, two FBI offices received similar versions of a memo titled “Operation Majestic-12…” claiming to be highly classified government document. The memo appeared to be a briefing for newly-elected President Eisenhower on a secret committee created to exploit a recovery of an extra-terrestrial aircraft and cover-up this work from public examination. An Air Force investigation determined the document to be a fake.
| National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, NICAP, was founded in the 1950s to research reports of UFO phenomenon. Between 1957 and 1969, NICAP and its members periodically communicated with the FBI. This release consists of this correspondence.
| Roswell UFO On July 8, 1947, the FBI Dallas Field Office sent a teletype regarding a “flying disc” that resembled a high altitude weather balloon found near Roswell, New Mexico. This single page is a serial from the larger UFO release found at http://vault.fbi.gov/UFO.
Animal/Cattle Mutilation In the mid-1970s, reports of scattered animal mutilations in western and mid-western states concerned many people. The FBI was asked to investigate, but was unable to do so because of a lack of jurisdiction (except when such mutilations were found on Indian lands). These files consist mainly of press clippings and correspondence concerning the issues between 1974 and 1978.
| Silas Newton (1887-1972) was a wealthy oil producer and con-man who claimed that he had a gadget that could detect minerals and oil. He was cited as an authority in Frank Scully's book Behind the Flying Saucers, a work that claimed to report on several UFO crashes in the area of New Mexico. In 1950, Newton said that a flying saucer crashed on land he leased in the Mojave Desert; however, he revised his claim in 1952, saying he never saw a flying saucer but had only repeated comments he heard from others. These files detail the FBI's investigations into Newton's fraudulent activities between 1951 and 1970.

Guy Hottel Memo (below)
Guy Hottel was a Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Washington Field Office. The information concerning Mr. Hottel is in regard to a March 22, 1950, memo he sent to the Director concerning flying saucers.
UFO Vault Cable 1
Besides the documents about Roswell and Majestic 12, the FBI has also released articles about UFOs.
One memo stands out, in which an educated person informs army officials about craft from an etherical planet, located on the same spot as Earth, but in a higher vibrational frequency.
The memo is particularly addressed to certain scientists, who are involved in important military and aeronautical authorities, to a number of government officials and some publications. The memo dates back to July 8th 1947 and is tagged “important”.
The author does not expect to accomplish much with this article. The fact that the dates in the memo had been obtained in a super-normal way, will probably mean that all addressees will discard the piece of text. Nonetheless, it seems to be a public duty to disclose the information. The author has several academic titles and is a former head of faculty.
Possibly the subject of flying saucers will soon become a serious one. When people decide to attack these ships, they (the attackers) are most likely to be destroyed. This can lead to panic and international mistrust among the public.
The most important data concerning these ships are now available and must be made public, no matter how fantastic or incomprehensible they may seem to people who have never learned to think like this.
- Part of the discs carry a crew, others are remote controlled.
- Their mission is peaceful. The visitors contemplate settling on this planet.
- These visitors are human-like, but much larger in size.
- They are not excarnated earth people, but come form their own world.
- They don't come from any “planet”, as we would use that word, but from an etheric planet which interpenetrates with our own, and is not perceptible to us.
- The visitor's bodies and their craft “materialize” automatically when they enter the vibration of our dense matter.
- The discs possess a type of radiant energy, or ray, which will easily disintegrate any attacking ship. They re-enter the etheric at will and simply disappear from sight without leaving a trace.
- The region from which they came from is not the “astral plane”, but corresponds with the Lokas or Talas. Those who study the etheric matter will understand these terms.
- They are probably not reached by means of radio waves, but they are likely to be traced by radar, whenever a suitable system can be thought of.
We are only passing on the information, there is nothing else to do. Treat newcomers with compassion. Unless the discs retreat, our current culture and science are confronted with something which they cannot deal with. The few with authority who understand these matters have a great responsibility.
Finally the memo has an addendum. The discs are oval shaped and consist of heat repellent metal or alloy unknown to us. On the front side of the disc is the steering panel. The back side contains the weaponry which, in principle, consists of a powerful energetic device from which a beam can be generated in case of an emergency.
