In addition, our Data Bank now includes a link to an online archive of vintage recordings of calls made to the center’s hotline during the 70’s.

Peter Davenport is currently land locked in Seattle due to snowstorms having closed all mountain passes leading back to the Center in Eastern Washington. So for now the hotline is being routed to voicemail only. We’ll be back up and running as soon as mother nature backs off a bit, and the roads can be re-opened.

We updated our database of UFO sighting reports on October 19th, with the posting of 407 new reports, and we update again, as of the date of this writing, October 26th, with the posting of 54 recent reports, submitted over the past week.

As we always do, we recommend visitors to our website be cautious as to what they accept as being accurate and true. A significant percentage of the reports may be cases of mistaken identification, e.g. of terrestrial aircraft, satellites, missile launches, so-called “Chinese” lanterns, etc..
