Hello Joe,

You might more answerably ask 'How will we know that reports are
no longer being suppressed' - because we have a rough idea of
how many amateur and professional were reporting sightings
frankly and honestly before 1949-ish, after which such reports
seemed to be `discouraged'.

For an idea, maybe see a compilation at:

www.perceptions.couk.com/fortre1883.html

and note that even by 1952, Hynek got "off the record" sighting
reports from about 12.5% of the professional astronomers he
interviewed; details at:

www.bluebookarchive.org/page.aspx?PageCode=MAXW-PBB1-958 and
onwards.

Interestingly, he ends the report (Aug 1952?) saying that
(public?) sightings reports for that year so far were `nearly as
many as all previous years together' - see:
