International Public UFO Information Resources
More Government Records:
A short partial list below provides a basic guide for getting started on the right path to the best UFO collections offered by other countries. All the resources listed are maintained by the government in each country and all are considered public records that are available to anyone.
On May 20, 2009, Brazilian UFOlogists felt the first waves of a huge shock that went around the world when the Air force invited a team of top-notch UFO researchers to participate in public debate about reported UFO sightings. The Brazilian government's primary motive for finally agreeing to host such an event was to get thorough expert analyses of official documents about reported UFO sightings at military installations throughout their South American nation.
As a direct result of deciding to take that very important first step, the Brazilian Government opted for open recognition of UFO research as a legitimate pursuit with valid knowledge bases. Perhaps the most important benefit gained from that Big Event in Brazilian History was public release of more than 1,400 newly declassified UFO documents.
British government officials recently did something that had never been done before in their country's entire history by deciding to release more than 1,000 pages of supporting documentation of reported UFO- events throughout the UK. While acknowledging that the documents didn't conclusively prove extraterrestrials visits or even their existence, at least one case had enough corroboration with highly persuasive evidence that we human beings are not all alone by ourselves in this big bad universe.
The Canadian government's Library and Archives UFO collection was compiled from combined data provided by four different federal agencies, including:
- Royal Canadian Mounted Police
- Department of National Defence
- National Research Council
- Department of Transport
Archived materials were acquired during 1947 until the early 1980s and reflect an exact composite duplicate of all government UFO documents on file during the same time frame. Almost 10,000 digitized files in various formats that range from police reports, to official policies and procedures, to interagency correspondence are available for public viewing in the collection.
For the last few years, the New Zealand UFO Research Network (UFOCUS-NZ) has maintained regular contact with Chief of Defence Force NZ Lieutenant General Jerry Mataparea to collaborate possible release of classified UFO reports. Although subordinates said Mataparea initially opposed the prospect of extensive research and consultations required for final expert determinations about the documents' legal eligibility for public release, he did agree to manage a special project to summarize UFO- materials. All completed summary files that have been transferred to the Archives New Zealand.
