403 New Reports Posted, Congressional Hearings Spur Reporting

  • Post comments:13 Comments

If you haven’t watched the July 26th Congressional Hearing on UFO’s, which featured dramatic testimony from whistleblower David Grusch and 2 Navy pilots, it is well worth checking out. You can view it here. The hearing and associated news coverage led to a big uptick in reports, with our volume doubling as more witnesses became motivated to share their experiences from the past. As usual, we received a mix of reports of dramatic sightings of structured craft, to mysterious orange orbs, to erratically moving lights, to misidentification of SpaceX launches, etc.

We’ve again picked some of the most interesting reports …

SkyWatch Passive Radar Network for Citizen Disclosure

  • Post comments:9 Comments

In 2004, Peter Davenport proposed a method to to build a UFO detection system utilizing passive radar, and presented his ideas in the MUFON UFO Journal. Now, almost 20 years later, Mitch Randall, working with the Galileo Project at Harvard, has built a working prototype and proven the concept.

The next step is to secure funding to produce a commercially available unit that anyone can buy and install. When at least 3 of these systems are deployed in any given area, what Mitch calls Objects Outside the Paradigm of Science (or OOPS), can be detected. These are craft that can …

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those individuals who have been kind enough to take the time to compose a detailed description of their sighting(s), and who go to the trouble of submitting those sighting reports, using our report form.  In our opinion, those people who document their sightings in that manner are the true heroes of ufology!

  • Post comments:2 Comments

We have just released 1275 new reports received at the Center since late December. The reports consist of a wide variety of sightings, from structured craft, to lights moving erratically in the sky, to frequent sightings of mysterious orange or blue “orbs”.

Conjunction of Jupiter and Venus

Reports spiked heavily in late February and the first few days of March when Jupiter and Venus appeared just 1/2 degree apart from each other in the western sky, a rare and spectacular astronomical alignment. Many witnesses mistook this as a single craft, and reported it as such to us both over the …

The MADAR Project

  • Post comments:6 Comments

Those of you who diligently scan our reports have likely noticed references to MADAR nodes, for example this report from May of 2022. MADAR stands for Multiple Anomaly Detection and Automated Recording, and these reports document alerts triggered by a network of special sensors placed in strategic locations around the globe. The sensors are designed to detect electromagnetic and ionospheric disturbances that may be caused by UFOs. The project is unique in that it uses a scientific approach to collecting data and analyzing it, rather than relying on anecdotal evidence. This has led to a high level of credibility …

Multiple Pilot Sightings Over the Midwest

  • Post comments:28 Comments


On the morning of Monday, November 7th, NUFORC received a seemingly quite credible report from an airline 1st Officer, who reported having witnessed, together with the aircraft’s pilot, a very dramatic display of lights over the Midwestern United States during the prior evening.  Moreover, several other flight crews allegedly reported the same event over their backchannel, so-called “guard,” radio frequency, and apparently discussed the event extensively over the course of an estimated 20-25 minutes.  If any person who is reading this advisory statement was witness to a dramatic sighting …
