1966 proved to be the year of saucers in many ways, both internally, nationally, area wide and locally an Easton, Pennsylvania UFO researcher and investigator for over 20 years stated. R
There is ongoing, documented contact with benevolent, spiritually and technologically advanced ultra and extraterrestrials at the Sattva Sanctuary in Trout Lake, Washington. This contact is an ongoing controversy that is met with a variety of responses. Hopefully, the information that follows will clear up some of the many fears and questions concerning the nature and purpose of these contacts and what our motives are in presenting it to you. R
What does it mean to be skeptical? The key to skepticism is to continuously and vigorously apply the methods of science to navigate the treacherous straits between “know nothing” skepticism and “anything goes” credulity. This manifesto—a statement of purpose of sorts—explores these themes further. R

When becoming involved with the subject of ufology at any level, we are faced with the fact that things are seen in the sky by different individuals, that are not explainable as anything we know about, or have seen before.
Hidden in the Pacific Northwest may lie the key to one of the most intriguing mysteries of our time. An individual named James Gilliland, who lives in Trout Lake, Washington, just southwest of Mt. Adams, is an "experiencer or contactee", and has had ongoing encounters, sightings, and experiences with the Mt. Adams enigma. Psi APPLICATIONS presents the factual findings from its ongoing investigation of this dynamic case. Relevant documentation and expanded information are linked for the reader's review. Video clips of recent activity at the ranch are also included.
On 21 June, 1947, three days before Kenneth Arnold reported his observation of a formation of objects traveling like a saucer skipped across the water, a significant event occurred. This is an overview of the Maury Island UFO crash incident. R
This article is by Avis Ruffu, who recently interviewed Betty Hill about her alien encounters in 1961, one of the most famous cases in UFO history. This interview is a very rare event because Betty retired from the UFO community in 1991. R
Official papers have revealed the Ministry of Defence set up a secret flying saucer working party in the 1950s. The papers show the group involved experts from the Directorate of Scientific Intelligence and the Joint Technical Intelligence Committee. R

On 2nd April 1997, Chilean newspaper "La Cuarta" has the following headline: "UFO Sighting of Arica is Confirmed by La Direccion General de Aeronautic Civil." Chile did start to join the small number of countries who officially stated that the nature of UFOs is of intelligent driven flying machines.
At the end of 1997, Chile joined the handful of nations which at one time or another have conducted official UFO probes. The Chilean Air Force (FACH) recently announced the formation of CEFAA, the name of which translates into English as the Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena. R

With five visuals of what is feared as the muhnochwa `trapped' on video tapes -- three of which were recorded by the team of intelligence sleuths in the state -- the scare does not seem to be unfounded. The sleuths who had worked on muhnochwa do not rule out the possibility of the presence of an extra-terrestrial body (ETB) with electro-magnetic (EM) effect in at least three per cent of the cases. While the Indian agencies were yet to admit the presence of ETB, foreign research agencies, intelligence reports said, have already been to the affected areas, met the victims and collected necessary data. R
It’s been more than three years and ten months since the sighting of a huge unidentified triangular-shaped UFO by police officers and others in the early morning hours of January 5, 2000, over the state of Illinois. As a result of my involvement in the production of a documentary that details this UFO sighting, I have had the opportunity to correspond with some of the witnesses over a period of time and stay in touch with developments regarding the sighting. It has given me the opportunity to see how such an event impacts people’s lives, witnesses and non, and gives me cause to stand back and view the entire picture from what I hope to be a humanitarian perspective.
It comes in the night, a flying sphere emitting red and blue lights that attacks villagers in this poor region, extensively burning those victims it does not kill. At least that's what panic-stricken villagers say. At least seven people have died of unexplained injuries in the past week in Uttar Pradesh state, India. R
You’d think a professional crop-circle chronicler like Colin Andrews would be absolutely ecstatic: Three films about crop circles are coming out this year, including “Signs,” the subject of Hollywood hype and magazine cover stories. But Andrews is actually worried ... worried that all this hype will bring less respectful amateurs into the, um, field. On the other hand, crop-circle makers like John Lundberg are thrilled. R
In-depth investigation of the ongoing, dramatic Gilliland / Mount Adams contact case. "It seemed a fellow up in Washington State by the name of James Gilliland was making extraordinary claims of 'full blown contact' at his Sattva Sanctuary which was documented with video, photos, physical effects and multiple witnesses. He alleged that this contact had been ongoing and anyone was welcome to experience it for themselves."
It is the hope and desire of the author that the reader consider the topics mentioned as part of the paradox in which human society exists and what serious UFO research must address if the phenomena is to be taken seriously by science and religion.
A research project on the UFO phenomenon is proposed in which UFO targets are treated on a par with astronomical objects having no fixed coordinates. Specifically oriented monitoring techniques and strategies involving small telescopes which are connected to CCD detectors, spectrographs and photon-counting photometers are presented. Expected exposure-times for acquiring a good S/N ratio of the target using all the proposed instruments is also evaluated. Finally, physical informations which are expected to come out from data analysis are presented and discussed in detail.
Pressure is building up for Congress to give attention to the controversy over unidentified flying objects. With scientists from Stanford, MIT, Cornell, Princeton and elsewhere studying UFO evidence, the controversy is now being brought out into the open and heavy secrecy surrounding the subject is being lifted. Seminars on UFO evidence are being held periodically throughout the country with laymen discussing the evidence without fear of being ridiculed. (This article is written by Sarah McClendon, the nation's longest-serving White House Correspondent, who died on 9 January 2003.) R
This five-part debate will cover a variety of topics prompted by the hypothesis of "Rare Earth," a book by Peter Ward and Donald Brownlee that suggests complex life may be unique to Earth. Today the participants examine whether life on Earth is doomed to extinction due to the changing nature of the Sun. If the Earth’s habitable zone does have a time limit, does the same necessarily hold true for other worlds? R
In an interview with Terra.cl., retired general Hernan Gabrielli Rojas mentioned that he had squared off against a gigantic UFO while engaging in a training flight in the skies of northern Chile. R
This presentation by Jacques Vallee concludes that the UFO phenomenon is researchable with the methodology of today’s science.
Scientists and generals drew up a top secret report on Unidentified Flying Objects and then decided to cover up a wave of rumours and sightings that swept Britain in the 1950s, The Observer can reveal. The existence of the UFO report, written in 1951 and later used to brief Prime Minister Winston Churchill, was denied by the Ministry of Defence for almost 50 years. R
They call it muchnowa — the "face scratcher." In the eastern part of the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, a mysterious flying object has supposedly attacked more than 100 sleeping villagers. They see a flashing light, feel an electric shock and a hard object, and emerge with scratched faces and limbs. R
The article, "Washington State UFO Hot Spot" by Christopher Montgomery, begins: The delicate balance between the spiritual and the imagined gets a vigorous shake when UFOs show up. Lately in Washington, visitors to an overtly spiritual retreat have been witness to events and phenomena open to many types of interpretation, both factual and belief-borne. One investigative group gives all possible answers the benefit of the endless doubt." R
If there is one area of research that gives scientists more laughs, investigators more headaches, and skeptics more ammunition, it is that of mental communication. If there is any type of communication between human beings and otherworldly visitors, it seems to be telepathic 95 to 99 percent of the time. That, in itself, is an incredibly high correlational statistic that places the incidence of this form of communication well above chance or fantasy.
The claimed 1947 alien autopsy footage acquired and marketed by Merlin Productions a small video distribution company owned by Ray Santilli has now been seen and in many cases believed by tens of millions of viewers in 30 countries worldwide. Through a selective presentation of facts and selective editing, programs like Fox Network's Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction have given the public the impression that a number of experts, including pathologists and filmmakers, believe that the Santilli-acquired footage might be genuine. However, the mingling of details and witness testimony from the actual case with scenes from the alleged alien autopsy film raises more questions than answers.
This is a really fascinating story and the story self has as many supporters as it has debunkers. In 1989, a man named Robert Scott Lazar contacted the Las Vegas television station (KLAS) and claimed that he had been working as a physicist on the government's most highly classified project, Galileo, which involves back engineering alien technology. R
Are we living in the Age of Science? It would seem so from the above examples. But if we are, why do so many pseudoscientific and non-scientific traditions abound? Religions, myths, superstitions, mysticisms, cults, New Age beliefs, and nonsense of all sorts have penetrated every nook and cranny of both popular and high culture. One may rationalize that compared to the magical thinking of the Middle Ages things are not so bad. But statistically speaking pseudoscientific beliefs are experiencing a revival in the late 20th century. R
Because I write science fiction, many people think I "believe" in UFOs. I do, in a way. I believe that there are many unidentified objects flying through our skies. I do not believe, however, that there is one scintilla of evidence showing that UFOs are the spacecraft of visiting extraterrestrial creatures. R
The winner of the 1,000 pound 'New Scientist'/Cutty Sark Whisky essay on unidentified flying objects criticizes UFO believers for their unscientific approach. Just because scientists cannot explain every "sighting" does not mean that UFOs exist. R

What does it mean to be a skeptic? Some people believe that skepticism is rejection of new ideas, or worse, they confuse “skeptic” with “cynic” and think that skeptics are a bunch of grumpy curmudgeons unwilling to accept any claim that challenges the status quo. This is wrong. R
