UFODATA: New Group Collecting Scientific Data on the UFO Phenomena

For the past couple of years, a small team of scientists and professionals has been planning an innovative approach to the scientific study of UFOs. Our goal is simple: to build a network of automated stations with a variety of scientific instruments to capture comprehensive, scientifically valid data on the UFO phenomenon. We have named the organization UFO Detection and TrAcking (UFODATA for short), and several members of our team are well known to the UFO community as pioneers in the study of UFOs in the field, including Erling Strand, Massimo Teodorani, and David Akers. The project was conceived by and is led by Mark Rodeghier, scientific director of the Center for UFO Studies, and Alexander Wendt, a political scientist at Ohio State University.

Our website ( ) contains details on the technology we plan to use in our stations, a listing of team members (including silent advisers who because of their position do not wish to be identified), an FAQ answering many common questions we anticipate about our plans, and an extensive set of resources on the scientific study of UFOs and what we currently know about the phenomenon.

It has become clear that any breakthrough in our understanding of the UFO phenomenon will require a break from the past. Witness testimony, photos and videos, and government documents have taken us only so far; instead, we need to record and study UFOs directly, as other sciences do with their own specific objects. Of course, this is a daunting task, but it is made conceivable by advances in technology, software, communication capabilities, and power sources.

We believe that the current scientific, technical, and social environment is primed to support such an endeavor as UFODATA. We expect to build on the best work of the past and do what the scientific community as a whole has failed to do: take UFOs seriously and study them rigorously.

Rectangle over Eureka, CA

Note:  I received this today, under comments for the post listed at the end of this report.


A few nights ago, on Sept. 3, 2015, my wife and I saw an object that looks almost identical to the picture above, fly directly over our house in Eureka, CA. It was low, maybe 500 ft, and flew very slowly. It made a very loud, deep rumbling noise, sort of like a jet, but without the high pitched whine that I associate with most jets I've heard before. It was rectangular like a cell phone, but the corners were cut off and had small round orange lights where the corners would've been, and one big red flashing light in the middle. I ran in and grabbed my binoculars and got a pretty good look at it. It seemed to be a light colored grey, and had curved lines that ran front to back from the front orange lights to the rear ones on each side. It flew with the long sides of the rectangle oriented as it's leading and rear edges, and the shorter sides as the left and right sides of the object...basically, it was longer side to side than it was from front to back. We watched it slowly fly in a straight line for about two and a half minutes, until it was too far away to see over the roof of our neighbors house across the street. It was really unbelievable. Nobody else in the area has reported seeing this thing except us, which is really amazing as it was so loud that it shook our house slightly, Initially, I thought it was an extremely low flying jet, which is why I went outside in the first place.

MUFON Case # 656208
Dallas, Texas
10:15 PM
Unbelievable and an Unforgettable Experience to Witness
My dogs were going crazy barking at back door so I went outside and thats when I noticed what I thought a very bright Star. It started to move closer and then away and then turned red and then back to bright. I was also hearing a very strange sound, between a hum and maybe wind. (I have never heard this sound before) I first grabbed my IPAD to start recording; it was not even close to what I was witnessing so I ran inside and got my digital camera and started recording so I could the best view of this very odd object. After 2 min of recording; I stopped; to be honest because it scared me. About 10 min Later it went slowly north from its location.


MUFON Case #65617
Garland, Texas
Out walking dog and saw a light I thought was too big to be a star.
I went out to walk my dog and noticed a light too big to be star. I got back to my street and the light was still there. My uncle pulled up in his truck and I told showed him the light and he said he thought it looked to close to be a star. I ran and got my camera and took still pics and video to see what would turn up. During my last video the light completely vanished into thin air it seemed like. I took the camera away and it was gone. I was completely baffled. I didn't hear any noises and didn't see it hovering like a helicopter. I live near an aircraft light tower.
