A former police officer has opened a real-life X-files office in the UK with two decades worth of UFO reports.
John Hanson, whose books on UFOs have been praised by Prince Philip, has investigated the UK's most infamous sightings and has now decided to share his collection of documents with the public.
The 75-year-old from the West Midlands already has 25,000 reports ready to display in the new British UFO Information Office and he isn't ready to stop yet.
People can visit the centre in Alcester, Warwickshire, via appointment.
Speaking to The Sun, the cop of 30 years explained that he has been gathering records from UFO groups for a number of years.
John's massive collection has now been organised and dated, "showing on a day to day basis what was reported both by the press and the UFO groups concerned".
He said: "I anticipate 250,00 documents, I haven't finished yet!"
John explained that his interest in all things extraterrestrial started in 1995 after his son, who was also a cop at his police station, was called out to Selly Park in Birmingham after 999 calls reported a strange blue object flying across the city.
Returning from an interview with a witness, John's son and another officer then saw the object themselves.
"[It was a] fat elliptical object with a blue field around it, with a line of rippling red through the middle," John said.
"I thought they were joking, but in due course managed to find some witnesses from the Oxford area that saw a ‘D’ shaped object following the contours of the land, a few minutes later."
John has since had his own experiences with UFOs. On one occasion he said that he and his son spotted two huge globes dart across the sky above Alvechurch, Worcestershire.
Despite his commitment to documenting UFO sightings, John fears that the "real truth" behind many of the sightings will remain kept from us for the foreseeable future.
"I believe this is because the reality might be nothing like we could ever imagine," he added.
John is also writing a new book about UFOs spotted by police officers. It will be dedicated to the late Prince Philip who had several of the former cop's Haunted Skies books in his library.
