More about me and my work:


I had started out as an outright 'debunker, 'taking great joy in cracking what seemed at first to be puzzling cases. I was the arch enemy of those 'flying saucer groups and enthusiasts' who very dearly wanted UFOs to be interplanetary ... Today I would not spend one further moment on the subject of UFOs if I didn't seriously feel that the UFO phenomenon is real and that efforts to investigate and understand it, and eventually to solve it, could have a profound effect - perhaps even be the springboard to mankind's outlook on the universe.   —J. Allen Hynek, Astrophysicist & Project Blue Book scientific advisor

For anyone interested in knowing more about this subject, I recommend several books* to start with (a short list in no particular order):
