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:1 Comment

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:25 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 …

The NUFORC website has been updated with the posting of 657 new sighting reports, received at our headquarters between September 7th and the afternoon of October 8th, 2022.  In addition to those reports, we include an additional 109 reports that may have been received prior to that time, but which have been corrected, or amended, for any of several reasons.

The following is a bit of NUFORC history written by Maurene Morgan, WA state director for MUFON, and originally published in the November 2021 Washington MUFON newsletter.

Description automatically generated with medium confidence Seattle firefighter Bob Gribble’s fascination with UFOs began in 1954 when he happened to pick up a copy of True Magazine. An article about UFOs grabbed his attention. Riveted, he quickly ordered Flying Saucers on the Attack by Harold Wilkins that was advertised in the magazine. Fascinated, he read it multiple times. Next came Donald Kehoe’s book, Flying Saucers Are Real. Now, Gribble was thoroughly hooked. Reading these books began his life-long conviction: …

We attempted to update the homepage and database of sighting reports on May 13th, 2022, but were thwarted in that attempt by overlapping travel schedules of Peter Davenport, Director of NUFORC, and Mr. Christian Stepien, NUFORC Technical Director, during the last two weeks of May.  We perform a preliminary update, as of this date, May 31st, with the posting of 284 written reports that had been received by our offices by early Saturday, May 14th, and expect to complete a second update within a week, bringing the site up to currency at that time.  …
