If anyone is interested in seeing what a serious effort to catalog UFO sightings looks like, try here: http://www.larryhatch.net/ *U* is a serious 20 year UFO research effort to catalog, map, and do statistics on reports worldwide.... Discovered hoaxes and misidentified mundane events are weeded out. Fireballs, night-lights and other lame reports with low information content are derated or passed over entirely.... Cult and contactee tales are extremely suspect. Still, an amazing 18,370 UFO / OVNI sightings are listed, from a large set of reference sources. None of this proves or disproves the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH), alien abductions, time travel, extra space dimensions and so on. This website shows *U* Database maps and graphs with the hope that real patterns or clues might emerge, some ufology at least. and how can you not like this: There is no creepy background music, nothing flashing or scrolling by, no vapid grey aliens or large inconclusive photos.
