Why another web site concerning unidentified flying objects?
Because this one doesn't intend to deal with just the usual fare. There are countless places to go on the Internet to get the latest on UFO sightings, hypotheses, personalities and their squabbles with one another, and so on ad nauseum. One can only rehash the same presentation that has chugged along for many decades before it becomes forgettable from eternal repetition.
What we wish to do here is provide some basics on unidentified flying objects and related aerial peculiarities, coupled with bringing into the open obscure, hard-to-find bits of UFO history from the backwaters of this much-maligned topic. This comes from nearly fifty years of our close involvement monitoring the various forms odd aerial phenomena have taken, from aerolites to airships, to mystery aeroplanes, to ghost rockets, to flying saucers and to the modern views of UFOs.
PROJECT 1947 is a world-wide effort to document the origins of the modern UFO phenomenon. Research for the project has yielded many early-era UFO reports via the FOIA, newspaper articles and contemporary accounts. Some of the material gathered by PROJECT 1947 is on display here.
PROJECT 1947 is an attempt to enhance the future of UFO research by establishing a solid collection of official UFO documents, newspaper articles and personal accounts from the beginning of the modern UFO era.
National Investigations Committee on
The National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) was formed in 1956, flourished through about 1970, and declined gradually thereafter. There were three distinct eras of NICAP, the differences between which are important for historical understanding. What I call "the real NICAP" was headed by Maj. Donald E. Keyhoe starting in 1957, and I became his assistant in 1958. For approximately 12 years, NICAP was a large and very effective UFO organization. This is the NICAP that accomplished a lot against great odds, as I will explain. When the negative University of Colorado (Condon Committee) report was released in 1968, NICAP began a downhill slide and gradually faded away after the Air Force closed down Project Blue Book in 1969. Its assets finally were purchased by the Center for UFO Studies.
About the Anomaly Archives
The Anomaly Archives is the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks:
Preservation and dissemination of scientific research into anomalous phenomena
Research and analysis of accumulated collections
Education of the public regarding scientific investigations into these phenomena
This is a great place to add a tagline.
Project Hessdalen was established in the summer of 1983. A field investigation was carried out between January and February 1984. Fifty-three light observations were made during the field investigation. You may read the details in the technical report. There was an additional field investigation in the winter of 1985.
Today it is home to the world's leading research on anomlous light phenomena.
