Let's face it, there really aren't compelling UFO cases anymore. And it's not just like the number of them has diminished, it's like they literally don't exist anymore. Sure, organizations like MUFON and NUFORC are reporting record breaking numbers of sightings, but if you've ever taken the time to check some of these reports out you will surely have realized their atrocious quality.

So, yes, there are plenty of sightings, but the typical MUFON case is un-investigated, reported by someone unable or unwilling to use write properly in english, and often obviously observing a naturally occurring phenomenon. For example, the latest report on the MUFON website (as of 6 pm 3/26/15) is as follows:

i was standing in downtown Chicago and saw this rocket type craft shoot straight up in the air. i do not say it is a real UFO, but it freaked me out to see this flight pattern in a city setting. i would simply like to know what i saw.
mufoncms.com...

It gets even better, our witness even snapped a few photos!

Granted, not all the reports are this bad, but if we're honest, an astonishing percentage of them are.

And the poor quality of evidence isn't the only problem. The organization's somewhat new TV show, Hangar One, seems to intentionally present some of the shakiest UFO theories possible. The absurdities of that program are discussed here: badufos.blogspot.com... . Shows like this give UFOlogy a bad name. It's shows like this that allow the MSM to ridicule the most ridiculous aspects of UFOlogy while ignoring the actual evidence of an unknown phenomenon. In this way MUFON is hurting UFOlogy.

Am I wrong? Is MUFON really contributing to UFOlogy?
Regardless, what steps need to be taken for good UFO research to be conducted once again?

Yes, you are wrong. MUFON came do to a comprehensive investigation, soil sample test, radiation test and...yes, we had an event in my back yard. Neighbors reported it to police. I was very pleased with MUFON.

Dr. Stephen Greer, the " I'm just a country doctor" guy looks like a Reptilian and has an ego problem. He has an impressive witness list though.

I don't mean to say they do nothing for the subject. I know that MUFON is basically the only organization actively conducting field investigations and such, but I think they do more harm then good overall.

ETA: Could you tell a little more about the event in your backyard? That sounds very interesting. And, Steven Greer doesn't just have an ego problem, he's a complete fraud. I hope you know that.

Well, probably a contrail, but yes. Certainly not a UFO.

Someone has to wade through the human excrement to find the few nuggets of UFO Gold! I say let MUFON do it!

The thread is about MUFON, not my back yard. U2U me and I will share the story.


As I said, Dr. Greer has an impressive list of witnesses. He lacks believability because of his ginormous ego.

I've lost interest in UFOs. I blame hoaxes and CGI along with all around terrible videos of Chinese lanterns. I suspect my interest will only be piqued is if and when aliens make first contact, so I won't be holding my breath.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. But where has this guy been for the last 80 years. Contrails are every where and he's just seeing one now.

Are you really not going to share your story with ATS? Don't you think that will help MUFON's credibility to post it?

I agree with the OP, browsing through the UFO reports on MUFON's website is


Our regular space sciences have more realistic talk about ET and UFO's.

I've personally never been impressed with MUFON's research abilities.

As for Bigalow. He probably bought out MUFON so that he can get sightings of his competitors vehicles. And/or to get the sightings and reports of those classes of vehicles hidden away to aid in keeping them classified for the time being. Then show publically the more out there ones or obvious hoaxes as a way to keep the signal to noise ratio very high, bringing public doubt on the subject and thus keeping things better classified.

MUFON has been around forever and never made any breaking discoveries. Their report card for the last twenty years Fail.

I can't speak for anyone else but when I made my report to Mufon, they called me and also offered to come out.

Ditto, in part. They called me to follow up and ask details, too. It had happened a long time in the past, when I called, so there was no need to follow up with a visit.

I felt like they did a good job!

Bigelow, NASA and MUFON?

Interesting combo right?

Time to go back to the ranch and have another mosey around.

Well, it's refreshing to hear from someone else who has had an alien event in their backyard. I bet it's more common than reported.
