The UK government is to post documents on UFO sightings on the Net. Britain's X-Files are to be published as part of a government move to apply laws on freedom of information, according to wire report.

Among the files to be released are documents dealing with Britain's most high-profile recentish close encounters, UFO sightings in Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk in 1980.

The story goes that eye witnesses including officers at a nearby US military base saw a "brilliantly lit spaceship land in the forest" on two consecutive nights. Doubters say all they saw was a nearby lighthouse (or possibly a weather balloon).

Before this week, the file was available to the public but only at the discretion of the Ministry of Defence - so few have seen it.

Perhaps the Rendlesham Forest files will answer the most puzzling question of all. Why would aliens want to land in Suffolk?

The government plans to repeal or amend up to 100 pieces of legislation which currently block public disclosure of information. These rules will be updated to fit with the Freedom of Information Act, which became law two years ago. ®
