France's Space Agency To Post UFO Database

Archive of 1,600 reported sightings will be available online by February.

The French space agency will publish its UFO sightings archive online in early 2007, the Reuters wire service reported Friday.

According to Reuters, the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES) will post a database of some 1,600 UFO sightings to the Web in late January or early February. Names, however, will be redacted from the database for privacy reasons.

The 6,000 documents -- primarily reports made to the police or filed by airline pilots -- stretch back 30 years, and will be available from the CNES's Web site.
