Context and Implications of the Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life

Richard C. Hoagland

One of the things I have tried to understand, as my research and that of others has revealed ever more suggestive data, supportive of the phenomenal idea that these objects in the Viking images could in fact be artifacts, is the curious "historically anomalous" position of the agency which took the pictures in the first place: NASA. R

How Disinformation Experts Spread Fear About UFOs

Anne Strieber

Bill Moore, UFO investigator and author, has learned a great deal about the government coverup of UFO information over the years. A large part of this coverup has to do with what intelligence agencies, such as the CIA, refer to as DISINFORMATION. R

Military UFO Quotes


UFO-related quotes from military officials. R


Jerome Clark

These days, paranoia - or anyway, deep suspicion; perhaps there is a difference - seems in style. This time the inspiration is the ongoing, ever un-resolved MJ-12 dispute. The spectrum of paranoia ranges from the mild (and probably defensible) to the pathological (as in see your psychiatrist). Fortunately the latter has afflicted few on the sober side of ufology, but it is running rampant on the wild side.  R

Jan L. Aldrich, UFO Magazine (Mar-Apr, 1996)

Project 1947, an examination of the beginning of the UFO era, had as its main goal screening 1,000 North American and 400 foreign newspapers during the main concentration of UFO activity in 1947, 24 June through 15 July.

Project 1947: Filling in the Gaps

Jan. L. Aldrich, MUFON Journal, April 1996

The amount of published UFO information is truly staggering. In North America there are probably well over 300,000 newspaper stories! Carrying on the early work of Ted Bloecher whose research found over 850 reports from 1947, PROJECT 1947 is a modest attempt to expand on the foundation that Bloecher laid down when he wrote Report of the UFO Wave of 1947.

Reaching Disclosure: An Interview with Stephen Greer

Steven Greer, MD & Michael Peter Langevin

If what Stephen Greer is saying is true, CNN, ABC, NBC, and the Fox Network should be camped outside his door waiting for his latest pronouncement. That they aren’t may be evidence of the level of denial about UFOs and extraterrestrials that has permeated the media, government, and mainstream culture.  R

Santilli's Controversial Autopsy Movie: A Comprehensive Review

Kent Jeffrey, International Roswell Initiative Bulletin #5

The claimed 1947 "alien autopsy" footage, acquired and marketed by Merlin Productions, a small London video distribution company owned by Ray Santilli, has now been seen, and in may cases believed, by tens of millions of viewers in over 30 countries world-wide. Through a selective presentation of the facts and selective editing, programs like Fox network's "Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction" have misled the public by giving the impression that a number of interdisciplinary experts, including pathologists and film-makers, feel that the Santilli footage milt be genuine.

Scareships over Britain: The Airship Wave of 1909

Dr. David Clarke, UFO Sweden

The phantom airship sightings, dubbed by some commentators as "scareships", were largely ridiculed by the Press. But they contributed to the growing demand by British patriots for more resources to be spent upon a military aircraft for defence against the Zeppelin threat. These demands reached fresh heights during the winter of 1912-1913, which coincided with a second airship scare.

Signs from up above

Clas Svahn, UFO Sweden

With this article, the author wishes to shed some light on some of the occurrences when unknown form of writings have been retrieved or observed during or after a UFO sighting. In most of the cases, the contact or the observer has believed the writings to be alien in origin. Proof of this does not exist. On the contrary, in several cases it is clear that the explanation lies elsewhere. Clas Svahn, a reporter for UFO-Aktuellt here offers the reader a few case files to ponder.

I will also talk about the Rainbow Declaration, which is my attempt to bring together what is good and precious form the human heritage with what we now know of the Cosmos, to the end that humanity's future will be good and it will achieve its appropriate destiny.

The U.S. Air Force and Ufology: Chapter on UFOs from Air Force Textbook on 'Introductory Space Science'

United States Air Force

The following document is taken verbatim from the United States Air Forces Academy textbook, " Introductory Space Science, Volume II, Department of Physics, USAF. " This is the volume that was being used by the Air Force Academy, at Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Air Force Academy has since pulled this volume from the curicullem in the very early 70's, because of the contraversy it generated, but after reading this, I think you will find that the United States Air Force has considered the subject of UFOlogy to be very "serious business." R

UFO Theories: How do they get here?

Andy Page, Ultimate Ufologists site

This section will deal with some of the ideas regarding how the UFO's actually travel from their civilisation to our planet. One of the main arguments against the reality of the extra-terrestrial nature of UFO's is that sceptics claim, and quite rightly, that the distances involved are just too vast to make space travel a viable option.  R

Ufology - Activities [of UFOs] on Earth (Chapter 9)

Ufology - Certified UFOs (Chapter 1)

Ufology - Flight and Propulsion (Chapter 7)

James McCampbell, Ufology

UFOs have unusual and distinctive flight characteristics. This aspect of the subject has been investigated extensively for many years, usually with an emphasis upon documentation.

(1) Let it suffice here to consider a composite, hypothetical sighting that includes the prominent flight patterns so that the maximum space can be devoted to analysis.

Ufology - Some Concluding Remarks (Chapter 10)

James McCampbell, Ufology

It is quite appropriate on logical grounds, even an indispensable technique, for an investigator to use any hypothesis that appears to him to help clear up some complex problem. An inquiry can then be undertaken from the perspective afforded by the new hypothesis that is tentatively assumed to be true. (From the classic book by James McCampbell.)

Ufology - Sounds of UFOs (Chapter 4)

James McCampbell, Ufology

Whether hovering motionless, gliding along at tree-top level, or cruising across the sky, UFOs are notably silent. While the familiar noise of flight is not associated with UFOs, they are known to produce some sounds. From the classic book by James McCampbell.

This chapter discusses the various types of common UFOs reported. From the classic book by James McCampbell, Ufology.

UFOs: A Demonic Conspiracy

Fr. Thomas Kulp, Flying Saucer Review, Volume 45/3, Autumn 2000

There are still a surprisingly large number of people who seem to take all UFO reports with complete equanimity and, as it were, refuse to see anything "nasty" anywhere in it. Then, on the other hand, there are others, like Father Thomas Kulp, the author of this article, who take the opposite view and hold that every single case, without any exception whatsoever, is something straight out of Satan's bag. R
