Just to keep it clear, it looks like they're making their archive of sightings and reports available online. As opposed to "spilling the beans"... i.e. letting out any particular secret or disclosing a coverup of any kind.

It'll be interesting to read the alleged multiple descriptions of the same event, maybe something to it


We'll have to hope they're intending to make this available in English.

Perhaps just perhaps this is the begining of disclosure. Don't underestimate the importance of this statement from the French. I salute them for this bold move and perhaps this will start a wave of other govenment or offical bodies doing the same around the world. Was anyone expecting this? I don't think so and why now whats prompted this now?

If disclosure is to be had by any government, it will be a long drawn out process so that the public can digest it. Perhaps it was started long ago.

Are there any well known French UFO cases?
It would be nice to have a well documented UFO case to cross reference with this new archive.

I agree that Disclosure will be a slow process but once it starts and people start to pay attention the slow dripping water can soon become a flowing gush before you get the full flow. (sorry for the metaphors).

I just think this is a postitive move. I can't wait to see the site once its up and running. The Reuters article states the reasons why they are making the disclosure which to me sound a bit lame but will these documents be blanked outwith nothing relavant on them only time will tell.

Yes, it is a commendable move on their part but lets not forget that the mexican and belgian governments have also disclosed many facts. I don't remember the exact dates but I am sure they already have. Lets see which governments/countries will be next.

I believe the american and british governments have also loosened their tight grip to some degree. Hints: The state of nevada is actually encouraging people to visit area 51 but at the same time they are arresting tresspassers. Very contradictory but I can see the reasoning. The reasoning is drive along "extra-terrestial" highway in the hope you will see some ufo action but please don't enter the "ghost base"


Another very encouraging aspect is that they allow documentaries of classic ufo cases to be broadcast on tv. If they were really fascist oriented they wouldn't be allowing it!

The conclusion is somewhat mixed. Yes and No. Allow some info but not all. Very gray area indeed!

THe thing to remember is this is a major player in the world and a member of NATO. THey have conducted a very high level investigation in the past ...I think it was called he COMETA Report? that was only published once and then dark holed we might get to look at this.

COMETA report was not done by NATO, though it may have had NATO connections. THe Cometa report was originally published in French, but there is an English translation PDF file that is downloadable on the web. If you Google it, you will most likeley find.

ZooMer,
I was reffering to the fact that France is a member of NATO and The french are a major player in the world. Thank you for letting me and everyone know the report can be found in the internet
I'll do a search for it.

Does anyone know of any good French UFO sighting that can be researched or the type of things reported by the French in the past that we have heard about. The Reuters article says that the stuff the Space agency will release willl be mainly on a single sighting??

Good! This isn't a lot of information but at least it's something. I wonder what prompted them to take this action. Usually you can't get info out of a government without making a major stink first. Why did they volunteer?

I want you guys to do a Google search and watch the documentary called "Secret Space". Your lives will never be the same again. Debates will spring from it for sure.

I wouldn't doubt it. Afterall, unfiltered cigarettes, wine, and a snotty attitude are hot comodities in the galaxy aren't they


jk, I love France. I would suggest the National UFO Database- google it. It's a site and organization that allows you to post UFO sightings.

The last paragraph in the article sums it up perfectly. It says:

Advances in technology over the past three decades had prompted the decision to put the archive online

Denying the existence of UFO's is becoming like denying the earth is round. The evidence for Ufology is overwhelming and as we become more technologically advanced, we need to explore from the standpoint that they do exist, not that they might exist. We might be able to find out so many things if people just began to see the obvious. The article also points out that some of these accounts are from pilots and these people want to remain private. These people are not trying to cash in on their sightings and many people who witness these things keep it private. After awhile when you hear from airline pilots, people in the military, Presidents, high ranking govt. officials, police officers and well respected people in the community, you have to ask when does skepticism become dogmatic in nature. A skeptic is one who is suppose to seek the truth wherever it leads. With Ufology you have both direct and circumstantial evidence. We send people to death row with less evidence. I'm glad the French have given in to reason. To deny Ufology does not hold water and this goes for some paranormal events as well. When skepticism becomes dogmatism then reason suffers.

I would just caution people about getting to excited about disclosure. It's no secret that the French via CNES have an active interest in UFOs and UFO reports and have been planning this "public archive" for a while now. I am just very happy to see that it actually has happened though.

there are several french ufo sightings that are considered to be serious cases because they involved highly credible witnesses ( military and civilian pilots and radar) and also close encounters. Good examples are described in the Cometa report as a matter of fact.
For example "Valensole 1965" and "Cussac 1967" are quite interesting cases..
