(Time) Of all the 6,700 previous top-secret files in the FBI's online reading room, one single- page memo about a UFO report has attracted almost a million viewers over the last two years. However, the FBI now says it never followed up on the unconfirmed account of extraterrestrial life.
In the popular 1950 memo titled “UFOs or No?” then head of FBI field office in Washington, D.C. Guy Hottel related the UFO story to then FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Hottel wrote that three “flying saucers” were recovered in New Mexico. The saucers, which were “circular in shape with raised centers, approximately 50 feet in diameter,” each had “three bodies of human shape but only three feet tall, dressed in metallic cloth of a very fine texture” inside.

According to the FBI, the "anything-but-ordinary" story was a second- or third-hand report that eventually found its way to the ears of a FBI agent. The memo ends by saying that the bureau attempted no further evaluation.
