The NATIONAL UFO Reporting Center Online Database
UFO reports can be accessed from the following four indexes:
Index by EVENT DATE
Index by STATE
Index by SHAPE OF UFO
Index by DATE POSTED
We hope that this information will prove to be useful to the general public and the UFO community at large. We post reports on a periodic basis as they are processed through our database.
The National UFO Reporting Center makes no claims as to the validity of the information in any of these reports. Obvious hoaxes have been omitted, however most reports have been posted exactly as received in the author’s own words.
In the early years of NUFORC, reports were primarily made over the telephone hotline, which was set up by NUFORC’s founder, Robert Gribble. The Northern Ontario UFO Research and Study organization maintains an online archive of calls from 1974-1977, which can be accessed here.
UFO Detection Using Passive Radar Technology
At the 2022 MUFON Symposium, Peter Davenport and Mitch Randall gave an update on the project to build a UFO detection system utilizing passive radar, which Peter originally proposed in a paper in 2004. We were excited to announce that the construction and testing of such a system is finally underway, under the auspices of the Galileo Project at Harvard.
Peter’s original 2004 paper can be read here.
