A good candidate would be the "UFO Briefing Document - The best
available evidence" (1995), endorsed by CUFOS, FUFOR and MUFON
(I located an online copy via the Internet WayBack Machine).

A more elaborate list of cases would be James McDonald's
presentation in July-1968 (who also debunks the usual
misinformation: why don't pilots or astronomers see UFOs? Why no
multiple witness sightings? etc). I include links to those and
other similar free online resources at


But in my experience with the Internet and having run A/B-type
testing and visitor behaviour (click tracking) analysis on
various pages, if you want such material to be viewed by the
general public, it needs to be audio-visual. Few people actually
read anymore, they have very short attention span and need
constant visual and audio titilation to keep their attention.

Videos can be uploaded to Youtube and hosted for free. Interest
is high, SciFi's UFO At WTC promotional video-clip has had
over 3 million views. These services offer huge potential via
centralised medium. Depending on the options Google/Youtube
offer on their services - pay-per-view or ads - the producer can
make an income e.g. sell the Faded Discs archive online, via
