Is MUFON solely interested in just collecting data or do they display the data, summarized like you have it, with maps etc? I realize that the site in Germany you took all of this info from, did at least graphs, but what about here in the US? Am I blind or can you point me to the "finished product" of all of this MUFON data? Thanks in advance if you know the answer!

9.12 looks like this one:
It isn't as cool as triangular ufos .... But maybe more "out of this world".
By the way, this is the famous portuguese Alfena OVNI.

They appear to be drawn by the same person. using the same set of pencil crayons. The scale and style is all too similar. They don't appear to be original submissions from various sources.

Another odd looking one.
Do you have a link to the original report ?
"Everything began at 8.30 am on the 10th of September 1990 when a group of kids called the attention for a "baloon" that moved in the skies of Vilar - Alfena.
Soon lots of people were also attracted by the unusual event. The said object with the shape of a "baloon" looked like a turtle with legs because according to a witness, besides the circular shape the object also showed appendices. It had a 1 to 3 meters of diameter and it gave the impression of reflecting sun beams.
The witnesses, a total of 25, positioned in various spots of the local wondered themselves about the real nature of that strange aerial artifact.
Some even tried to hit it with rocks. After travelling in the area for about 50 minutes, the strange ufo flew away in the direction of Santo Tirso - Paços de Ferreira.
Some people alerted Mr. Manuel Gomes, local resident and colaborator of the Jornal de Noticias newspaper, who took his camera and took four photos of the said object. Later he related the whole happening to CNIFO (Comissão Nacional de Investigação do Fenómeno OVNI) "
These are drawings from sighting reports collected by MUFON-CES Germany which have handled UFO reports across Europe.
Bear in mind that they only cover reports up until 1999 so they are not a definitive sample but they do show how diverse UFO's can be in size and shape.
Do you recognise anything here ?
UFO Hovers Over NSA Base - Australia, October, 1973.
According to official reports, at 7.30 p.m. Lieutenant Commander M, of the US Navy, observed 'a large black, airborne object' in the airspace over the important US intelligence base at North-West Cape. US Navy Fire Captain L had also seen the object. The object was about 10 metres in diameter and was about 300 metres above the ground. It was completely stationary except for a halo around its centre, which appeared to be either revolving or pulsating.
"After about 20-25 seconds the craft accelerated at unbelievable speed and disappeared to the north."
The officer's account further states:
7. Hovering at first, then accelerating beyond belief
.9. No noise or exhaust.
11. Have never experienced anything like it.
