UFO sightings and an "alien abduction" are detailed in thousands of close-encounter documents released by the National Archives.
Previously classified documents reveal the UFO phenomenon was discussed at the highest level of government worldwide.
In December 1977, the Government used its influence to talk down a call by Grenada president Sir Eric Gairy for a UN agency to conduct research into alien sightings.
About a year later, the House of Lords held a debate on the subject of UFOs, the files show.
One of the documents describes a "War of the Worlds" incident in 1967 that was treated as a potentially real alien invasion of the UK.
The RAF was flooded with calls from the public reporting six small "flying saucers" discovered in locations in a perfect line across southern England.
Four police forces, bomb disposal units, the army and the Ministry of Defence's intelligence branch were all mobilised.
But it later emerged the saucers were a 'rag-day' hoax by engineering students from Farnborough Technical College.
Another file tells of a family capturing on film flashing red and white lights zig-zagging their way through the sky in 2003.
Police officers, including a helicopter team, also witnessed the 20 to 30 lights over Bromley, Kent, and reported the incident. Radar checks revealed nothing unusual.
The documents read: "A policeman sent to investigate confirmed the sighting. Objects were moving faster than any man-made aircraft."

Of possible interest.
Will check it out.
Please send chocolate.
I’m gonna search the files for the ‘War of the Worlds’ incident in ‘67. Will send you references if it’s interesting.
Also, the file of USO in contact with a Navy vessel is also missing because the wind ripped the ship log.
I had heard there was a flap about missing Rendlesham docs...but there seems to be some disagreement over what is actually missing (or so I have heard).
A pair of illegal aliens. Both ineligible to be POTUS.
A Kinetic Military Action of the Worlds? My gawd!
Not all of them, not even a significant percentage of them.
That isn't to say aliens from other worlds are making them either. Not everything in God's universe is meant for us to understand.
I love crop circles tho, they are amazing art. I think aliens just use our planet as a giant canvas. Maybe it’s the universe version of flickr or something...
I have my towel ready.
Barney Frank would be chasing the aliens saying, “probe me”.
