This article is a full review of the top 10 UFO reporting websites in the world including MUFFON, NUFORC, CUFOS and many more! After researching UFO sightings for countless hours including avenues for UFO reporting we’ve come down to the top 10 who are able and at the ready to receive your sighting information and actually publish it for everyone to compare to see within their public databases.
We find them very reliable for many reasons including the fact that they use the Scientific Method when collecting and analyzing all reports, in order to ensure they have enough information before even starting to create a hypothesis about what we might be looking at.
MUFON officially began on May 31, 1969. At that time it was known as the Midwest UFO Network. As it outgrew the Midwestern state boundaries to become a world class UFO organization, the name was changed to Mutual UFO Network. That allowed the acronym MUFON to remain as the organization matured. Allen Utke, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Wisconsin State University was selected as the first MUFON Director. A year later Walter H. Andrus, Jr., replaced Dr. Utke as the MUFON Director, a position he held until 2000 when he retired and John F. Schuessler took over as International Director. John retired in November 2006 and James Carrion became the International Director. James Carrion resigned at the end of 2009 and Clifford Clift became the International Director. He resigned in January 2012 and David MacDonald became took over. And now, at the 2013 MUFON Symposium in Las Vegas, Jan Harzan became the new Executive Director.
www.uapreporting.org is an International multilingual website initiated during 2009 and in the framework of the International Year of Astronomy, The Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP) Observations Reporting Scheme is a project aiming at facilitating the collection of UAP reports from both amateur and professional astronomers, via a questionnaire to be downloaded from a dedicated website.
Their reporting form is very extensive and available in many languages other than English, including French, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian and Italian.
Now just to warn you that even though their last news piece was published in October of 2015, they have moved on to forming a neutral scientific based UFO reporting group called “UFO Data Project“, with the following exerpt which best describes them:
“science is needed because of misplaced certainties on both sides of the UFO debate: “believers” convinced that UFOs are extraterrestrials, and “skeptics” equally convinced that UFOs do not even exist. Our own view is that humanity knows very little about the true nature of unexplained UFO reports, and that the only way to resolve this lack of understanding is through serious scientific study. This is now possible for the first time in the history of UFO research as a result of an unprecedented convergence of high resolution digital camera technologies, off-the shelf scientific instrumentation, powerful low-cost computing platforms, and ubiquitous high-speed internet access.”
