      Dear Mr. ___________:    
       
      This responds to your request under the Freedom of Information Act dated   
      11 June 1986 for any documents concerning UFOs, any documents received
      from U.S. Embassies concerning the Brazilian UFO incident, and all    
      documents pertaining to PROJECT MOON DUST.   
       
      Upon review, it has been determined that there are 61 documents responsive 
      to your request.  Of these 61 documents, portions of 16 are properly  
      classified and are not releasable.  The properly classified portions  
      withheld are exempt from release pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552 (b)(1), (b)(3),  
      and (b)(5), Freedom of Information Act.  Subsection (b)(1) applies to 
      information properly classified under the criteria provided by Executive   
      Order 12356.  The statutory basis for invoking subsection (b)(3) is to be  
      found at 50 U.S.C. 402, NOTE (Public Law 86-36).  Subsection (b)(5)   
      applies to inter- and intra-agency memoranda which are advisory in nature. 
      All reasonably segregable portions of the 16 documents, absent   
      administrative and classification data, are attached hereto.
       
      All substantive portions of three other documents are properly classified  
      and are not releasable.  There are no reasonably segregable portions of    
      this exempt material.  The properly classified portions withheld are  
      exempt from release pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552 (b)(1), Freedom of  
      Information Act.  The remaining material is not forwarded because it is    
      routinely deleted administrative and classification data unrelated to the  
      subject matter of the request.
       
      The remaining 42 documents are attached hereto, absent administrative and  
      classification data.  You are advised that the documentation provied is    
      the most legible available from our archives.
       
      You are advised that a requester may appeal, within 45 working days, an    
      initial decision to withhold a record or part thereof.  Should you wish to 
      exercise this right, you may do so by referring to case #F0I-0504-86 and   
      addressing your appeal to:    
       
                                Director 
                                Defense Intelligence Agency

                                Washington, D.C. 20301-6111
