The French space agency, the National Space Studies Center (CNES), plans to put its part of its archive of around 6,000 UFO sightings online in late January or mid-February. France has been collecting these for around 30 years. Since many of these are different reports of the same sightings, only about 1,600 actual reports will be posted.
Yahoo news quotes CNES director Jacques Arnould as saying, "Often they are made to the Gendarmerie [police], which provides an official witness statement?and some come from airline pilots." To access the CNES website, click here.
