The web is full of visuals which show UFO sightings in places like Area 51 or some random place in the U.S. It is funny how even alien abduction stories only originate in America, leaving the rest of the World feeling alienated. But the Americans, they’ve been smart. During the 50’s and the 60’s, the CIA and the US Air Force took reports of flying saucers so seriously that the spy agency’s Office of Scientific Intelligence formed a scientific advisory panel to study the phenomenon.

Part of 930,000 documents which have recently been declassified and posted online by the CIA, one of the report details 6 UFO sightings in India, above Bhutan’s capital Thimphu and in Nepal. The report, dated June 18, 1974, elaborates the sightings, which were recorded between February and March, 1968 and was not meant to be shared with foreigners.

One of these sightings were recorded near Chang La, Fukche and Koyul in Ladakh on March 4th, 1968. At 1330 local time, a white light was observed, which was followed by two simultaneous blasting sounds. Also, one reddish light then followed the white smoke. The UFO’s direction of flight was recorded as East to West.

Another sighting over Kaski in Nepal, on the night of March 25, 1968 involved a blazing object, flashing intermittently and then disintegrated. The report said, “A huge metallic disc-shaped object with a six-foot base and four feet in height was found in a crater at Baltichaur, five miles NE of Pokhara.”

On February 19, 1968, there were reports of a fast-moving and bright object being spotted over northeast Nepal and north Sikkim at 9 pm. The object, seen over Lachung, Lachen, Thangu, Muguthang and Chholamu in Sikkim, was bright enough to light up the area on a dark night. And the sighting at Chholamu was followed by what is described as a ‘thunder sound’.

The sighting above Thimphu in Bhutan involved a “bluish colored object” flying over Bhutan’s capital at 9.30 pm on February 21, 1968. It moved at “high speed without any noise” and had enough light to “brighten the area”. On the 4th of March 1968, an object which followed a circular path and left a white trail behind was sighted in the Ane La area of Ladakh in India. The report is now online and you may follow the link below to read it.
