French UFO Files Open To The Public Stephen Fung March 23, 2007 Extras The French National Space Agency has decided to set up a website making available to the general public all recorded UFO sightings over the national territory in the past 50 years. The goal of such a release of information was to give easier access to the data for research, but it crashed within hours of its opening due to an overload of traffic. If you see a beret-wearing alien with a baguette under its arm, check out your French phrase book and wish it a “bienvenue sur Terre” (“welcome to Earth”) before you report it. France became the first country to open its files on UFOs on Thursday when the national space agency unveiled a website documenting more than 1600 sightings spanning five decades.
