(Newser) – Did the government really find aliens in flying saucers in New Mexico? That’s what some newly released FBI files seem to indicate. In one 1950 memo spotted by the Telegraph, special agent Guy Hottel writes that “An investigator for the Air Force stated that three so-called flying saucers had been recovered in New Mexico. They were described as being circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter.”

“Each one was occupied by three bodies of human shape but only 3 feet tall,” he continued. The bodies were “dressed in a metallic cloth of a very fine texture.” The memo is one of thousands of documents released in the FBI’s new online “Vault”—including hundreds of pages on the topic of “UFOs.” So is this the smoking gun alien enthusiasts have been waiting for? Maybe, maybe not. As SkepticBlog points out, the memo is hearsay, and deemed “no further evaluation” necessary.
