The US Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) "entire" publicly available UFO-related documents are now available for download. The Black Vault has released the documents on its website, which is now available for down in converted/searchable PDF format and also in its original state. This comes days after the US Congress mandated relevant agencies to share a report on UFO sightings within 180 days since the passage of the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA), a provision part of the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act and COVID-19 relief package.

The Black Vault is run by John Greenewald Jr., who has filed various Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests over the years to get access to these CIA-related UFO documents. In mid-2020, The Black Vault purchased a CD-ROM collection of UFO documents to make sure it has a complete record of CIA-related UFO documents. CIA made the contents of the original CD-ROM UFO-related documents available to The Black Vault in the multi-page .tif files format, which was not searchable and was useless for research purposes. So, Greenewald Jr. scanned thousands of pages of documents to make them in searchable PDF format. 

"Although the CIA claims this is their 'entire' collection, there may be no way to entirely verify that. Research by The Black Vault will continue to see if there are additional documents still uncovered within the CIA’s holdings," Greenewald said in a blogpost on The Black Vault website.

Earlier in 2020, the US Department of Defence (DOD) released videos of its pilots encountering suspected UAPs, noting that the explanation for the flying objects remains unclear. The Pentagon released three US Navy videos captured by its pilots showing interactions with presumptive UFO. One of the videos shared by the DOD showed the interaction was from 2004 and the other two were from 2015. The videos, which were earlier kept secret by the DOD, were released "to clear misconceptions" surrounding already circulating clips on social media.
