    Hynek was an associate member of the Robertson Panel, which recommended that UFOs needed debunking. A few years later, however, Hynek’s opinions about UFOs changed, and he thought they represented an unsolved mystery deserving scientific scrutiny. As the only scientist involved with US Government UFO studies from the beginning to the end, he could offer a unique perspective on Projects Sign, Grudge, and Blue Book. Read more »

    In late December 1951, Ruppelt met with members of the Battelle Memorial Institute, a think tank based in Columbus, Ohio. Ruppelt wanted their experts to assist them in making the Air Force UFO study more scientific. It was the Battelle Institute that devised the standardized reporting form. Starting in late March 1952, the Institute started analyzing existing sighting reports and encoding about 30 report characteristics onto IBM punched cards for computer analysis. Read more »

    Like the Air Force, astronomer Allan Hendry found that only a small percentage of cases were hoaxes and that most sightings were actually honest misidentifications of prosaic phenomena. Hendry attributed most of these to inexperience or misperception. Read more »

  • Comparison of IFOs to UFOs by characteristics

    Published 16 Дек 2012 admin No Reviews

    A key study of BBSR was to statistically compare IFOs and UFOs by six characteristics: color, number of objects, shape, duration of observations, speed, and light brightness. If there were no significant differences, the two classes were probably the same, the UFOs then representing merely a failure to properly identify prosaic phenomena that could already account for the IFOs. On the other hand, if the differences were statistically significant, this would suggest IFOs and UFOs were indeed distinctly different phenomena. Read more »

  • Breakdown by category of IFO and case quality

    Published 16 Дек 2012 admin No Reviews

    BBSR further broke these results down based on whether the identification was considered certain or merely doubtful. For example, in both the astronomical and aircraft IFO categories, 12% were considered certain and 9% were doubtful. Overall, of the 69% listed as IFOs, 42% were thought to be solved with certainty, while 27% were still considered doubtful. Read more »

    Alien on moon

    The human foot has already trod on the lunar surface, however, visit all corners of the satellite of our planet — not an easy task. One of the most beautiful and most secret places on the Moon is round plain, which is surrounded by a ring of mountains, it is also called » Plato Circus» This beautiful place has attracted the attention of astronomers and ufologists. Although, in this valley, there isn’t a lot of anomalies, there are periods, when there is incredible activity, explain what is not so easy. In the distant 1686 astronomer Francesco Bianchini, during the eclipse of the moon, said that from the Moon and to the Earth stretches bright red and blue pillar of light. There was an impression, that someone tried to build a bridge and escape from the embrace of darkness. Later it was found that the light originated in the above-mentioned plains. The last such phenomenon was seen by astronomers in 1927. This mysterious phenomenon has not received an explanation to our days. Scientists and astronomers have reviewed several possible causes of glowing, but none of them has no effect. Some ufologists put forward their point of view. Watching the glow, experts on UFOs noticed that the light on the moon took place not only in the «Plato Circus», but in some places, like someone lit the fuses for the light. In their view, a mysterious light can be a kind of beacon, but for whom?..
