1. What’s MUFON?

It’s an American institution that doesn’t seek earning, looking into Unidentified Flying Object witnessing experiences. Walter H. Andrus, Allen Utke, John Schuessler among others had built it on May 31, 1969 in Quincy Illinois. Thus, it’s one of the most ancient and biggest non combative UFO examining institutions in the US.

2. The Institution’s goal:

1) Look into UFO witness observations and amass the information into MUFON index so that researchers use them all over the world.

2) Enlighten people on the prevalence of UFO and their impact on a given population.

3. Staff and Requirements:

 1) Staff:

The intuition has in excess of 1500 representatives around the globe; most of them are located in the US. MUFON network organizes a yearly convention and circulates the MUFON UFO Journal month to month. Out of the 1500, 75 are on the field examiners along with special units to look into real organic proof of space being objects.

2) Requirements:

Even though the participants don’t get any money, participants need to study a 265 page handbook and a do background check.

4) How does MUFON analyze an incident?

MUFON gets a lead through connection with local officials and media along with e-mail from base operation. Next the state director hires one or two on field analyzers from the area where the incident took place. They ask questions to people, who saw the UFO, take notes and do drawings to re-visualize the sighting and look into how it’s affected the surroundings. Further interviews with police and neighbors lead to finding of more eyewitnesses. Afterward, the analyzers provide a written interpretation of the whole sighting so the state director can scrutinize it. Furthermore, if there is physical evidence such as pictures or soil samples, expert in those fields look into them. Lastly, all the information is gathered into a directory for comparative study. Consequently, they get more understanding of UFO activities.

5) MUFON and Blue Book

Project Blue Book was looking into UFOs in Middle America during the 1960s at the University of Colorado. However, the US government had dispersed them in 1969. At the same time, Ariel Phenomenon Research Organization was looking into UFO movements on the US west coast at Berkley University. In order to capitalize on Blue Book’s demise and expand their power, ARPO established a new institution named The Midwest UFO Network to look into UFO cases. Since then, it’s been the largest institution and has operations all over the globe.

6) How to become part of MUFON or address a personal UFO experience?

In order to become on the field analyzer for MUFON, one has to join the institution and pay small amount of money, let the state director know of their willingness to join and pass a written test. Afterwards, the applicant teams up with an experienced analyst to get more instructions. If a witness had seen a UFO, they can let the local MUFON office know of their experience through MUFON website.

    • In about 1980 I was living in near Stewart Springs California near Mt. Shasta. I drove up to the house we were renting in an isolated area. Above the tree line I saw a huge disc shaped UFO RISE UP ABOVE THE TREES.
      I told my kids to run into the house and stood there watching. It did not make a sound and made exact movements up….stayed there for quite awhile…then moved over to the right in a straight line then descended. I called a neighbor who said, ” you saw that already.” I was afraid for kids and moved.

  2. the us gov. will never admit to ufos due to the gov. using the found crashed ufo,s goods found at sites to improved there power and I think for our future benefits.

  3. I seen a ufo group in 1966. it was like watching a race in the sky. they the ufo,s were fling so fast from the northwest to the north and then back again to the north, faster than any plain can fly the thing that was amazing was the way they could stop from supersonic speeds to a dead stop, then again. unbeleavable this lasted 15 20 min.

  4. have had quite a few sightings in my life but what my brother and I saw in Iowa, well it was right ahead of us on Hwy.3 west of Homboldt, Ia. Sunday morning and not a cloud in the sky. I was driving and later he told me something got his attention that flew over my car really fast and stopped ahead of us a few hundred feet in the air which is when I saw it. First thought was that it was a blimp however no wings on it. it angled down and crossed over the hwy behind a grove of trees on a farm site. seconds later we passed that farm and it was not there. 1971

  5. why when there is brilliant footage of U S forces interacting with ufo’s your television program features such old footage going back to the early 60’s. is it because your television program is heavily censored and you are not allowed to show this footage. if this is the case you have to ask yourselves just how relevant is your program, and instead of being a help to the battle against the govt and its censorship battle, you are actually part of the problem.

  6. Have you ever heard about any of the sighting around the Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky You might want check out the rumor of a military bunker that has been built inside the cave system. I live near the park and hve heard talk of these things

  7. Hi…my name is Steve Knox in Mountain Grove Mo. You can look me up in your database. I have previously filed a report and someone from your organization tried to contact me by phone but I was unable to return his calls because of threats that I was receiving from this group. I will however be willing to discuss what I know about this.

  8. I have witnessed three separate UFO sightings in my adult life with one sighting especially spiritual. In this sighting I actually ran into tall grass at night thinking it was chasing me. It was very large, somewhat triangle shape, and well lighted. I would enjoy conversing with anyone who has experienced the same type of sighting. I have lived in Texas all my life.

  10. I was in new Canaan ct. it was 5:30 am, very dark. I looked up and saw many stars. I noticed there were 2 Stars very close to each other, as though they were touching. One moved abyuptly to my right then it went upward fast. The other one slowly moved to my left then downward then disappeared the other remained. They did not look like any aircraft I’ve ever seen and ps. I know what I saw!

  11. It was June 1983, I was pregnant for my third child. My Mom and me went to the drive in Charlotte, Michigan. While waiting for the first movie to start. I looked to the left of the screen. It Was just above the tree line in the distance. I was not shocked to see it but numb and scared. Shouted to my mom look look. Then got out of her van, went to several cars. Told them to look look. After that I got back in the van tocalm down because I was over due to have my son. You could not hear a sound. It was Hugh bigger the a 747. All I could see was the length and the round like windows or lights. You could see what it looked like because it flouted slowly. Then it went behind the trees Then an hour later there was another but smaller. That had lights spinning around, blues, reds yellow. There was a security man that keeps and eye on the drive-in. I told him to look, his comment was it was a helicopter. I said to him are you nuts, do you hear anything. I am a Veteran. So I know the difference. As we were still talking and doing some arguing. A helicopter went by going the same way. I look at him and said that’s a helicopter. Dumbass, at the time I didn’t know he was moon liteing as a cop. When the movie started it was the one before the main one. It was the hell’s angel. After that don’t remember the second movie or the name. I asked my mom. She does not remember it either. The only thing I remember was the trip home..there are other times. But there’s too many…

  12. Who or where do I report an alien being sighting? I saw a being, not of this world in 1957 or 58 when I was 18 or 19 years old and have been looking for a place to report it before I die ( I’m 81 years old). I find lots of places to report UFO’s but not one place to report alien beings.
    Also, I know of one more person in this same town that saw a being somewhat similar to the one I saw. Who or where do I report it?

  13. I seen a triangular set of lights which had going around the perimeter some sort of illumination like laser light or liquid looking light like radio city music hall has on its updated sign out front of the place, I discovered it in the western sky from where I was traveling on 08-09-2020 at 12.20 mid night on Donnerville Road just up from 999 heading towards Charlestown Road when i decided to change my course and follow it, only to find it would move further away as i persued it, but when I turned away and was going back I noticed it about the same distance as when I left it at it furthest point in the sky, where I seen it at that far point should not have been visable to me when I returned to where I was but a little further via route 30 ease and the same threee lights forming a triangle was going right along with me, if I stopped it stopped when i moved it moved, when I finally got to Dunkin Donuts on Columbia Avenue just eat of pa 741 I got out of my car and observerved it with another who did see it. it was the only thing visable in the sky. As I showed it to him he said it looked like a star but then I said look a little longer and closer, as he did he said he could see the three lights and that it was only sitting there and made no sence as plains move and helicopters must get fuil at some point. I told him to tell me if this thing leaves when I do so we exchanged numbers and I returned home. After sleeping for 2 hours I woke at 4:30 am , walked outside and looked around, I couldn’t see it anywhere but I noticed the other two lights that have not moved all night but then another third light source had started to move as I thought what I was observing in the sky were only stars , the one that had begun to move from the south to the NE was steady , its was exactly like the stars in the sky but closer to the earth , I turned to look some more then back to see if this thing moving with no beaken lights was still on the move only to find that it has dissappeared in the night sky by either staying still or it simply turned off the light or left the area. I am going back out before sunrise now at 5:30 am brb,Ok I am back, its 6:31 am and if i had a telescope I would be able to identify the extreemly bright light in the sky over Donnerville Road and 999. But I do not so I will say nothing more. , By For now. 🙂

  14. In the early 70’s, I was just a kid sitting on the curb outside of our house in Waldorf, MD. I remember looking up into the perfectly clear blue sky. I saw a blue orb with the edges fuzzy. It almost looked like a fluorescent blue. As I was looking at it, if I recall correctly, Six smaller blue orbs separated from it and they all came out at different directions. At first they were slow, then they sped up and appeared to disappear. I remember running into the house and telling my dad. He said I probably just saw weather balloons. I’ll never forget that day.

  16. The last two nights I saw a string of about thirty bright lights moving across the sky in single file. They were not blinking. They appeared to be very close together but not evenly spaced. They were high enough to be above the clouds because I lost sight of it behind the clouds each night. It was silent and I didn’t see any other aircraft. the lights were moving from South to North in Southwest Colorado. My son took pictures the second night. Both nights this occurred at the same time 10:10 pm MDT. Any Clues?
