The Truth About the Condon Report
NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena), The U.F.O. Investigator, Vol. IV, No. 9, SPECIAL (January 1969)
The conclusions of the Colorado University UFO project are fully negative, as we predicted. However, some of the chapters contain strange contradictions of what the project's director, Dr. Edward U. Condon, stated in his two opening sections. Several reports state the probable existence of structured, intelligently controlled, unknown objects capable of precise maneuvers and extremely high speeds.

The Condon Report (Review/Comment)
Bernard Haisch, Ph.D., Astrophysicist
The negative conclusion of the Report is more apparent than real however, since there is a substantial discrepancy between the conclusion in the "Summary of the Study" written by Condon singlehandedly, and the conclusion one could reasonably draw from the evidence presented in the body of the Report.

CondonReport
UFOs, Social Intelligence, and the Condon Committee (PDF)
Diana Palmer Hoyt, thesis submitted to the Faculty of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
The history of UFO sightings and their sociopolitical context and consequences constitutes the broad subject of this study and provides a site for analysis of how scientists address, both publicly and privately, anomalies that appear to pertain to science. The Condon Report, the Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects, commissioned by the Air Force in 1968, provides a complex case for the exploration of how the outcome and conclusions of the study were influenced by all that had gone on before in ufology.

The Condon Report (Review/Comment by Stanton Friedman)
Stanton Friedman, Crash at Corona
The initially enthusiastic support [for the Condon study] from the major private UFO groups soon turned sour, as it became apparent that outspoken study director Dr. Edward Condon had concluded well in advance that there was nothing to be learned from investigating UFOS. R

The UFO Report: Condon Study Falls Short
Robert M. L. Baker Jr., Scientific Research, April 14, 1969
This half-million-dollar, 965-page report probably represents the ultimate case against the UFO "cult" – in fact, it was to be the last scientific word on that controversial subject. But, paradoxically, the report contains some evidence suggesting that the UFO phenomenon should be studied further.

DISCLOSURE: The Ultimate Terrestrial Imperative
Victor Viggiani, INTERNATIONAL META-PHYSICAL AND SCIENTIFIC SYMPOSIUM in Brisbane Australia in August 2003
It is the intention of this discussion to illustrate that the process of Disclosure is the fundamental objective of UFO research and investigation. Based on this overwhelming mass of evidential material both within the UFO research community as well as within the sequestered data residing in government archives, Disclosure is the ultimate terrestrial imperative for the human race as we discover ourselves, the universe and those who share it with us. The question remains: are we ready for it? R

*U* UFO Database
Compiled and developed by Larry Hatch
The *U* UFO DATABASE is a serious 16+ year effort to catalog, map, and perform statistical functions on a filtered set of UFO sightings throughout history. As of January, 2001 *U* holds over 17,750 carefully filtered UFO events distilled from hundreds of books, major journals, catalogs, downloads and other sources. "Junk" sightings ( night-lights, fireballs, discovered hoaxes etc.) are systematically filtered out. Otherwise, *U* would hold several times the present number of listings. Scope is world-wide, for all dates from antiquity to the present.

UFOCAT Database
From CUFOS (Center for UFO Studies)
UFOCAT99 refers to a computer database of over 109,000 UFO reports and related information released in May 1999. It is theresult of a 30-year effort that began during the Air Force sponsored Colorado UFO Project, also known as the “Condon Committee.” UFOCAT was begun by Dr. David R. Saunders, who at the time was a co-Principal Investigator on the Colorado UFO study andprofessor of Psychology at the University of Colorado. Dr. Jacques Vallee contributed a large computer catalogue of approximately 6,000 cases at the project’s inception. (Available for order from CUFOS, on CD-ROM - Not available online)

National UFO Reporting Center
The National UFO Reporting Center, located in Seattle, WA, was founded in 1974 by noted UFO investigator Robert J. Gribble. The Center's primary function over the past two decades has been to receive, record, and to the greatest degree possible, corroborate and document reports from individuals who have been witness to unusual, possibly UFO-related events. The principal means used by the Center to receive sighting reports is its telephone hotline, which has operated almost continuously since 1974. During that period, the hotline has processed many tens of thousands of calls, and the Center has distributed its information to thousands of individuals. The hotline is well known by law enforcement agencies, FAA ARTCC's and flight service stations, National Weather Services offices, military facilities, NASA, and many 911 emergency dispatch centers all across the United States and in many parts of Canada. Those entities routinely direct the calls they receive regarding possible UFO sightings to the Center.

The Magonia Database - A Century of UFO Landings ((1868-1968)
Compiled by Jacques Vallee
A Century of UFO Landings (1868-1968) Compiled by Jacques Vallee The Magonia Database was compiled by Jacques Vallee and published in his book "Passport to Magonia." Over two decades ago, eminent scientist Vallee wrote a provocative book about alleged UFO landings, folklore, and certain unexplained phenomena. That long-out-of-print book--which discussed the most interesting reports of more than 1,000 apparently reliable witnessess--has become a classic. (Contains almost 1,000 sightings reports, focusing on UFO landings)

Refuting Fermi: No Evidence for Extraterrestrial Life?
John B. Alexander, Ph.D.
In a recent article Seth Shostak drew attention what has become known as the Fermi Paradox. Typically discussants raise the famous off-hand luncheon comment by Enrico Fermi, "Where is everybody?" when dismissing the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial life. The invocation of such a distinguished figure is polemic and used to make the position academically unassailable. R

A Catalogue of Australian Vehicle Interference Cases
Keith Basterfield
A particularly perplexing aspect of the UFO phenomenon is the sub-group of reports concerning effects on motor vehicles. This catalogue is intended to gather together, in summary form, those Australian cases which appear to fall in to the sub-group of interest. The search for cases involved the files of most Australian UFO research groups, books, Journals and magazine articles. However, where ever possible original investigation notes have been located and used.

The Effects of Position and Distance in UFO Ignition-Inteference Cases
Donald A. Johnson, 1983 Journal of UFO Studies
Some reports of UFO sightings involve events in which motorized land vehicles experience ignition or electrical system interference in the presence of a UFO; 276 such reports were collected from the UFO literature. These events were analyzed to determine the role played by position of UFO and distance from UFO to vehicle in the severity of the reported electrical system interference. A highly significant relationship (p .001) was found between position of UFO and severity of effect. A substantial majority of the cases experiencing complete engine failures (stalls) occurred when the UFO was reported either directly in front of or above the witness' vehicle.

UFO Interference with Vehicles and Self-Starting Engines
James M. McCampbell (MUFON 1983 UFO Symposium Proceedings / NICAP)
Disruption of automobile engines by UFOs is a familiar phenomenon. Less well known are instances where an engine that had been killed comes back to life again when the UFO departs, that is, the engine restarts itself without assistance from the driver. Twenty- seven such cases are summarized. A key observation by a mechanic whose engine had been stopped by a UFO suggests a mechanism by which self-starting might be understood.

Fifty-Six Aircraft Pilot Sightings Involving Electromagnetic Effects
Richard F. Haines, Ph.D., MUFON 1992 UFO Symposium Proceedings / NICAP
Reports of anomalous aerial objects (AAO) appearing in the atmosphere continue to be made by pilots of almost every airline and air force of the world in addition to private and experimental test pilots. This paper presents a review of 56 reports of AAO in which electromagnetic effects (E-M) take place on-board the aircraft when the phenomenon is located nearby but not before it appeared or after it had departed. Reported E-M effects included radio interference or total failure, radar contact with and without simultaneous visual contact, magnetic and/or gyro-compass deviations, automatic direction finder failure or interference, engine stopping or interruption, dimming cabin lights, transponder failure, and military aircraft weapon system failure.

Odors from UFOs: Deducing Odorant Chemistry and Causation from Available Data - Preliminary Report
A.F. Rullan
Some UFO reports document the presence of odors. While the number of UFO odor reports is small, odor detection and recognition provides some information that could help solve the UFO mystery. Odorants, if released or created by the UFO, could provide information about their chemistry and possibly about the energy generated to produce them. Odors have not been considered physical evidence of the UFO presence because odors do not leave a trace. Nevertheless, odor detection implies that a chemical change took place in the environment that was significant enough to be detected.

Estimates of Optical Power Output in Six Cases of Unexplained Aerial Objects with Defined Luminosity Characteristics (PDF)
Jacques F. Vallee, Journal of Scientific Exploration
An analysis of six cases of unexplained aerial phenomena observed by qualified observers over a twenty-year period in various parts of the Earth and in known physical conditions yields estimates of optical power output ranging from a few kilowatts to thousands of megawatts. This paper surveys the methods by which this parameter can be derived from witnesses' statements, it discusses the various hypotheses one could propose to account for the observations and it calls for a broad re-examination of sighting files in an effort to apply this methodology to a larger sample and to better understand the luminosity characteristics of the reported objects.
