French get a look at nation's UFO files

France was the first country to publicly release documents about government investigations of UFOs and other unexplained phenomena. Around 100,000 documents were released on an online archive, with the oldest record dating back to 1937. The archive includes police and expert reports, witness sketches, maps, and photos, video, and audio recordings. The archive has about 1,650 cases on record and 6,000 witness accounts. Web traffic to the archive exceed expectations. Only 9% of reported strange phenomena have been fully explained, with 28% inexplicable despite precise testimonies and high-quality evidence.
