Not of This Earth
By William Pullin, UFO Historian
Greetings! Numbers. Through the investigative efforts of civilian organizations and independent researchers, we have been able to ascertain that certain years have been witness to waves of UFO activity. The years 1947, 1952, 1954, and 1973 come immediately to mind. In addition, shorter UFO flaps have become well known to the UFO research community, with those events being far too numerous to possibly name here. Despite this, there are certain things that we, as a community, just don’t really know. Why? The primary reason, in my humble opinion, is that we have no clue as to what percentage of UFO sightings go unreported. No clue whatsoever, although most UFO researchers maintain that the unreported cases are in the majority, a position I firmly agree with. As a direct result of this situation, we, meaning UFO researchers, have been working with what can only be described as an incomplete set of data. Therefore, some of the conclusions that have been drawn after examination of the available data may be skewed, or simply incorrect. Again, we simply don’t really know. That is why it is vitally important that all UFO witnesses come forward with their events as soon as possible, otherwise we may never truly have a firm grasp on what may be happening. Thanks for your time and support.
