British Government Releases UFO Files on Internet

According to the UK’s National Archives website, “the files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents, drawings, letters and parliamentary questions covering the years 2000-2005.”

Even Winston Churchill was perplexed, as evidenced by the following quote at the bottom of the Archives homepage:

“What does all this stuff about flying saucers amount to? What can it mean? What is the truth?”

Churchill, as I noted in an article last November (around the time of the LA Mystery Missile incident), was deeply concerned with UFO’s.  One encounter in particular frightened the hell out of him: RAF pilots were flying across the English Channel when they were approached and “shadowed” by a metallic flying object, sticking around long enough for the pilots to take photos and make brief sketches of the craft.  Churchill was quoted as saying, “This event should be immediately classified since it would create mass panic among the general population and destroy one’s belief in the Church.”

There is a highlight guide to help readers navigate the massive amount of files.  And it is in this highlight guide that perhaps the most interesting one exists.

“File DEFE 24/2036 (p63-68) contains two colour photographs of “unusual atmospheric occurrence” taken by a retired RAF officer during a holiday in Sri Lanka in March 2004.  He heard a clap of thunder followed by the appearance of a doughnut-shaped cloud in the sky that “did not rise but headed from the high atmosphere towards the earth”. He believed it to be an “air burst” of some kind. Submitted to MoD via RAF Fylingdales. File DEFE 24/2036 (p63-68) contains two colour photographs of “unusual atmospheric occurrence” taken by a retired RAF officer during a holiday in Sri Lanka in March 2004. He heard a clap of thunder followed by the appearance of a doughnut-shaped cloud in the sky that “did not rise but headed from the high atmosphere towards the earth”.

The photograph of the mysterious Sri Lankan airburst is stunning enough, but to understand how significant this UFO is, one must understand that Sri Lanka is thought by some to be an inter-dimensional portal, a stargate of sorts.  To see the photograph of the strange atmospheric perturbation in Sri Lanka is great fodder then for everyone from New Agers to UFO enthusiasts alike.
