The day has finally come for all UFO lovers and those who still believe ‘the truth is out there’. The CIA has released thousands of declassified documents on flying saucers. The agency humorously noted that X-Files’ Fox Mulder would certainly love to use them to prove the existence of extraterrestrials.
All the documents date from the late 1940s and ’50s. The CIA picked several documents which may be particularly interesting. They include files from East Germany (1952) where the agents were investigating a story of “a huge flying pan” which had a diameter of about 15 meters. Another document which would cheer up extraterrestrial fans says that similar ‘flying saucers’ were seen in Spain and North Africa.
The CIA even included several pictures of the alleged extraterrestrial objects, including UFOs and suggested alien body parts. The release of the ‘conspiracy’ files surprisingly coincided with the release of new X-Files series.

However, for those who sided with skeptical Agent Dana Scully all nine seasons, the CIA said it released documents “to prove there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings.”
