    If anyone is interested in seeing what a serious effort to catalog UFO sightings looks like, try here:
    *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.

    Nor are there any sales ploys or 'come to our weekend retreat to learn how to make psycic contact aliens for only $2500' on the site as well. Gotta love that! Thanks Chronos!
