This website is dedicated to analysis of the UFO phenomenon.
Q: Oh not, not UFOs. Surely UFOs are just science fiction-fantasy?
A: It is apparent from multiple reliable sources* that Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) are, in fact, real.
In other words, there have been real, physical objects observed moving through the atmosphere under intelligent guidance, that cannot be identified as having been made by humans anywhere on Earth.1
This fact alone is interesting – and the possible implications are startling.
Q: Aren’t all UFOs explained as balloons or chinese lanterns and so on?
A: Mostly, yes. Since the reporting of UFOs began, the vast majority of sightings can be explained as mundane objects such as balloons, astronomical objects such as planets or meteors, or meteorological phenomena.
However, when formal studies are conducted, there is always a residue of 5-10% that cannot be satisfactorily explained as such. It is this remainder that are often observed as structured craft - artificial, solid vehicles that have clearly been constructed and guided by an intelligence.
There are consistent characteristics in a majority of UFO reports, including appearance of metallic exteriors, near-silent operation, and the ability to hover and change velocity abruptly.
Q: But there’s no evidence! UFOs are only reported by unreliable witnesses.
A: If this were the case, there would be nothing to talk about.
However, it is very far from the truth. In fact, the bulk of the reports mentioned on this site are from highly reliable sources: trained military personnel, commercial airline pilots, air traffic control operators, police and other official services. Where the sources are ordinary civilians, reports can be corroborated through testimonies from multiple witnesses.
In some cases, reports of UFOs have been made by active military staff while on operational duty. In a small proportion of these cases, a document trail persists of the incident and has been de-classified to the public, and in a smaller proportion still, the military personnel involved have given recorded testimony of their experiences (Tehran 1976 and Rendlesham 1980 are prime examples.)
Of course, no single report constitutes hard physical evidence – the so-called “Smoking Gun”. This can only be provided by artifacts being studied under laboratory conditions.

Q: So is this website all about conspiracy theories?
Answer: Emphatically, NO! This subject is heavily polluted by the opinions and ideas of many people, who for various reasons believe that there exists a colossal government cover-up (mainly on the part of the USA). Many people believe that alien beings were retrieved from the crash of a flying saucer in Roswell, USA in 1947, and that this is just one example of the deception being carried out to this day by the powers-that-be. Some people also believe that retrieved flying saucers have been reverse-engineered to create new forms of energy and propulsion – but that these technologies are being kept secret as part of a covert world-domination program.
The problem with all these theories is that they have no facts to support them. But that is never a problem for conspiracy theorists.
Whereas there is a lot of evidence to suggest that unknown aerial objects do indeed operate in our skies, there is almost nothing to suggest that they have ever crashed, or that humans are working with the technology or alien visitors. While it seems likely that the USA government in particular certainly has more information on UFOs than they have released, a fact which is apparent from the depositions of multiple retired American military personnel, there is nonetheless no convincing evidence of a concerted effort to delude the public; ex-special forces commander, Colonel John Alexander PhD, who conducted long-term studies into UFO secrecy within the military establishment, finds that the default excessive tendency of the military to classify all incidents, together with dis-jointed interdepartmental communications and skepticism of certain individuals, means that information reaches a dead end of its own accord, rather than necessarily being blacked out by a sinister control group.2
This website is concerned with facts, and not idle supposition.
Therefore, we present the details of certain key reports, and look at the sources, witnesses and documentation that exists. Some of the better UFO documentaries are also presented here.
Later, we will be presenting an online database containing a detailed catalogue of many thousands of confirmed UFO reports.
The general idea of this website is to provide a repository of good information, always with references and sources; especially with subjects such as UFOs, no information can be accepted at face value by a critical, discerning reader. Therefore, the purpose is to provide useful material to the open-minded, enquiring skeptic.
