Britain releases new UFO files

Posted: 09:08 AM ET

A hovering Toblerone and a silky-white residue join near-misses and strange lights in the British government's latest release of its files on UFO sightings.

Made public Thursday, the files are the fifth collection of records about unidentified flying objects to be released by the Ministry of Defence and The National Archives as part of a project to open the files up to a wider audience.

Thursday's release is the largest so far, totaling more than 6,000 pages of material from 1994 to 2000.

The files include a sighting by a man in Birmingham, England, in March 1997. He said he came home from work at 4 a.m. to see a large blue triangle-shaped craft hovering over his back garden.

It was silent but caused dogs in the neighborhood to bark, the report said. It "shot off and disappeared" after about three minutes, the report said, leaving behind a "silky-white substance" on the treetops, some of which he saved in a jar.

It was not clear what happened to the jar and its contents.

I think that it is now definite that extraterrestrial life exists somewhere in our ever expanding universe; so it should be expected that UFOs may have and/or, in the future, visit visit our planet. These UFO files the British government has released are just proof, not yet proved to be proof, of this definite fact that will eventually be proven most likely through an eventual encounter, which is destined to happen.

Earthlings, I want to meet your masters, said the visitor that resembled a dog.

Who'd thunk it? The Swiss all along, huh! How did they take that triangular prism of fudge fondant, that usually sat idle on the shelves and counter's of nearly every 'duty-free shop' worldwide (this world),and send it skyward.

I am beginning to see a correlation now, knowing their time pieces certainly required extensive calculation and skill.

An aerial 'Toblerone' sparking the mystery and imagination of mankind toward a cocoa cosmos beyond our own, fascinating. I remain curious what the launch sequence would entail.

The authority and infrastructure for a celestial deity are adulterated by the thought.

We may share the same agnostic dyslexia with the diffi'cult'y in deciding whether to believe in 'Dog'.

Maybe Tolberone should charge Great Britain with copyright infringement?

You would think they could be a little more creative in their design! I always find it interesting when only one person experiences extraterrestrials.

I am sure there is life on many plants and probably numerous of higher intelligence; however, if they made a visit, I do not think they would be sneaking around someone’s backyard! White substance in a jar that vanished? Sounds like that guy has been taking too much Viagra and 'smokin' too much wacky tobacco!!!

@ Cajazz76:24:8

Would you also be an insomniac?

Ted   February 18th, 2010 1:54 pm ET

@ Dodie

So that is what a Viagra does to you, giving you a lift in different dimensions!

Cajazz76:24:8   February 18th, 2010 2:46 pm ET


I'm scratching my 'spheres of influence' wondering what dimension you will distort next.

Dodie   February 18th, 2010 3:09 pm ET

@ Ted

with paw in hand... scrolling upward to the article which was presented by Larry King... they reference a jar with ..........??? Awe... heck Ted... use your imagination! :~)

@ Cajazz76:24:8

and what part of the body would those spheres rest?

Cajazz76:24:8   February 18th, 2010 3:12 pm ET

I just can get the vision of a bug-eyed, blue-hued, hip-rocking, fuzzy statuesque Elmo, or Emo maybe, emerging from the triangular gull-winged door of a 'Toblerone" aerial vessel with brunet vapor emitting from its nostrils. The advertising concept appears priceless!

Cajazz76:24:8   February 18th, 2010 3:13 pm ET


My knees, where would you think?

Cajazz76:24:8   February 18th, 2010 3:14 pm ET


In that jar..white chocolate descendants, of course.

Cajazz76:24:8   February 18th, 2010 3:16 pm ET


Now there is an oxymoron...white chocolate...only by design and invention could it exist...

Space is so vast that it would be easier to find a microscopic germ on the head of a pin than to find our planet in the never ending skies above. With thousands of sightings of UFO's, it is hard to believe that everyone is lying. I am sure that there are many scientific reasons why aliens may come and go. It is possible that something in our atmosphere affects metals from other planets, and it is possible that the air we breath is poison to aliens. No one has proven that aliens or UFO's exist, but no one has proven that they don't. I can say without any doubt that somewhere in the never ending space, that life does exist, even if it hasn't arrived here.

Judie   February 18th, 2010 11:46 pm ET

aliens do exist they are on the ~Michael Jackson~ blog! Some strange
creatures over there and scarey too!

Not that long ago, a Video of a light/craft was taken in the distance from someone in the Space Shuttle. The light/craft stopped its decent to the earth, then suddenly moved to one side. No more than one second later what appears to be a Kinetic Weapon fired from the Earth passed straight thru where that light/craft had been a mere moment before. The light/craft simply jumped aside as the lethal threat passed by it.

This Video clearly appears to show a grave Crime against all Humanity here on Earth that was likely committed by the US Military.

If any viewers have seen that video and could post the title or where in the internet it can be seen again, I'd appreciate learning more about which Shuttle flight shot that Video, the mission number, orbit number and any further data I could find about it. Thanks!

All I can say is back whem I was 17 I was driving down a local rural highway
at about 1 am and a light in the sky to my left about 10 o"clock caught my eye as a fast movement. I immediately stopped the vehicle in the road and
opened the door and stood looking toward the direction. But I could only see the stars until what looked like one of them in again a fast movement from left to right caught my eye. It stopped abruptly, shot straight up at a phemomenal speed, then stopped again only to shoot across the sky from
my near left now to across my forward vision then continuing across then
upwards in a very fast sweeping arc until it was a blur and out into a very
high altitude and simply out of my sight. I will never forget it and im 55 now.
I have never seen anything like it since. Nothing around then or since that
I know of manmade could achieve that type of speed and abrupt right angle
navigation. I would say initially it was a half mile away in the sky. No sound and totally astonishing.

🙂 It's funny, we as humans collectivly are fasinated when it comes to hearing about the lastest project to find life on mars, even if it is bacteria, we dont mind spending billions as well as saying good bye to a huge chunk of this planets most precious metals, yet when someone says anything about intelligent life, ufo's and et's etc., theyre crazy, no

With as far as we have come in the last century, with something as simple as electricity, its a bit mind boggling to suggest that we have come as far as we can, in so far as discovering different energies to harness. To think that we, right now are as smart as we or anything can get, ever, that there is nothing more to be learned about anything, well its a bit ignorant.

Oh yeah, and to all the nay sayers out there, with the well why have'nt we seen 'em, howcome all the evidence just dissapears?, I got just one thing to say...Orson Welles and The War of the Worlds. 🙂

Tom Cruise have dyslexia and yet he is still a very successful actor.,-`

dyslexia is not that debiliating but it is somewhat limiting to the kind of job that you can get*-.
