coondoggie writes "Perhaps it's because there has been a steady stream of news about asteroids flying by or hitting Earth in or maybe it's the uptick in space news having to do with Mars and the Sun in recent months, but whatever the reason the FBI this week decided to chat up its famous or infamous UFO memo written by agent Guy Hottel 63 years ago. The single page file, which the FBI now says it is the agency's most viewed document — having been hit nearly one million times since its declassification in 2011 — relays an unconfirmed UFO report that the FBI says it never even followed up on."
