Ninety percent of the estimated 12,000 reports analyzed by the Air Force were considered hoaxes, explained aerial phenomenas, or natural astronomical objects. The other 10 percent were considered legitimate Alien sightings and/or incidents.
Started in March 1952, Project Blue Book was the first and longest-running publicly acknowledged U.S. Air Force investigation into UFOs. Its aims were to find explanations for UFO sightings, to assess whether UFOs were a threat to national security and to determine whether the UFOs used advanced technology from which the U.S. could learn. Blue Book was concluded in 1969 as a result of the CONDON REPORT, and one of its investigators, DR. J.ALLEN HYNEK , went on to form the first science-based UFO group, the CENTER FOR UFO STUDIES, in 1973.
Project Blue Book, phases of which also went by different names, began in 1948 and was shut down in 1969.
