Where to Report a UFO Sighting

Where to Report a UFO Sighting

From 2008 to 2009 there was a 300 percent increase in the reporting of unidentified flying objects. With the numbers of UFO sightings increasing each year, it is important to know exactly where to report a UFO sighting and what information will be needed in order to report it successfully.

Where to Report

There are quite a few centers that accept UFO sighting reports, however, the following four organizations stand out as the most well-known and respected in the field of UFO study.

The oldest and largest UFO investigative organization is MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network. Established in 1969 with headquarters in Morrison, Colorado, it boasts a large worldwide investigative team and supports scientific research of the UFO phenomenon. Online reporting of UFO sightings is available, and once submitted, an investigator will contact witnesses.

Another resource that tracks sightings is the National UFO Reporting Center based in Davenport, Washington. They also have online reporting as well as a 24 hour hotline. Typically no investigation is made. The center is available to log the information in the UFO sightings database.

CUFOS, the Center for UFO studies, provides a form questionnaire on their website to print, fill out and mail to their Chicago, Illinois office. This organization focuses on serious study of UFOs from a scientific viewpoint.

For air traffic controllers and pilots, the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP) was formed in 2000. This Vallejo, California company provides confidential reporting by telephone and website for aviation personnel including pilots, aircrew, air traffic controllers and radar operators.

Information needed

Most report forms for the above organizations can be found right online. Some information you will need to make sure you have available is: Date and Time of Sighting - must also include the time zone and whether a.m. or p.m. Length of Sighting - will need to time the sighting so report will reflect how long the UFO was viewed. Place of UFO sighting - must include city, state and country of sighting. Exact details like address and if you have GPS coordinates can also be helpful. Details about Object - it is important to record shape, size, color, lights and the number of objects witnessed. Give as much detailed information about the object as possible. Travel - what direction of travel did the object make, north, south, east or west. Was the path it took straight or curved? Did it move quickly or slowly? Sound - were any sounds heard or any aircraft in the vicinity when UFO was spotted. Picture Documentation - were you able to take pictures or videos of the sighting? If not, are you able to draw what was seen?

While certainly this list in not exhaustive, it does provide a good basis for where to report UFOs when you see them as well as what documentation you will want to have available.
