New Zealand releases four decades of secret UFO documents

Illustration for article titled New Zealand releases four decades of secret UFO documents

The New Zealand Air Force has released thousands of formerly secret UFO documents, acknowledging that they simply don't have the resources to investigate them. Included in the documents are photographs, samples of alien writing, and firsthand accounts of alien contact.


According to the BBC:

The files include details of New Zealand's most famous UFO sighting when strange lights were filmed off the South Island town of Kaikoura in 1978.

An official report from the time said natural phenomenon could explain it.

Although the incident made international headlines at the time, the military report suggested it could be lights from boats reflected in clouds or an unusual view of the planet Venus.


The case has never been solved, and most likely won't be now that the Air Force has stopped investigating.

It would also seem that the files contain some extremely strange information. Reports the Telegraph:

[One witness] who in 1995 met the giant alien with size 440 shoes says the being told him that on dying humans ascend as hydrogen atoms. "You will remain in hydrogen form for 150 years. Then it will change to sodium."

OK, amateur UFO sleuths in New Zealand: Time to start investigating this whole giant shoe alien issue.

I'm originally from NZ, and I met someone, a friend of a friend, who had a sighting. He was absolutely convinced it was alien spacecraft, even though he was throwing disclaimers around in an attempt to appear objective. But what he was describing was clearly a helicopter, though admittedly a quiet one, and yet he insisted it couldn't be.

Experimental military craft were often tested in out-of-the-way parts of NZ. Not quite in an Area 51 scale, but enough for me to know that you can't leap to alien conclusions at every bright light in the sky.

They want to believe so much, they dismiss any logic that potentially contradicts their preconceived notions.
