MYSTERIOUS flashing lights, a fidget spinner shaped UFO and a bulbous floating tank.
These are just a few of the incredible sightings kept hidden by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) which have just been released to the general public.
Several files from the government’s «UFO desk» were released in 2009 and 2013 and were available to browse online.
Of these, 18 were withheld — sparking conspiracy theories that the government were holding something back.
But last week the MoD quietly made all but three of these missing files available, long after they were due.
They include various UFO sightings and investigations from around the UK between the 1970s to the early noughties, including a report called the «Turnberry Vor Incident», «The Wash» sightings and the notorious Rendlesham Forest phenomenon — often referred to as Britain’s Roswell.
The files are filled with mysterious eyewitness accounts as well as hilarious doodles of flying saucer-style objects — both terrifying and laughable.
There are pictures sent in by children, including a «9-and-a-half» year-old from Dyfed, Wales who drew a bulbous flying saucer which they claim was 30 inches in length.
Several requests from pupils hoping to learn more about UFOs feature, too.
But many of the reports come from what the ministry describe as «credible witnesses» — often police or military staff.
One includes a detailed light system with eight cylinders flashing pink on one side and blue on the other.
