What we learnt about the CIA's declassified UFO files

Time was you had to buy a mac, change your name to Deep Throat, lurk in gloomy corridors and converse with odd sorts to have any hope of stumbling upon classified CIA files about UFOs.

But now the truth really is out there: declassifying a cache of documents from the early forties and fifties, the CIA has now released some of the most intriguing on its website, allowing even the more cynically minded of us to raise a conspiratorial eyebrow or two. Three if you're actually an alien.

So grab your tinfoil hat and prepare to get obsessive: here’s our run-down on some of the best cases.
