Title: The Case for UFOs

The Case for UFOs
  • Sean Dow

  • UFOs or Unidentified Flying Objects must exist
    due evidence provided by
  • Eyewitness Accounts
  • Physical Evidence
  • Official Government Investigations
  • The study of UFOs is known as Ufology.

Hynek Classification System
  • Developed by Astronomer Dr. J. Allen Hynek
  • Consisted of Four Groups
  • Close Encounters of the First Kind (CEI)
  • Object gets close, but does not interact with
  • Close Encounters of the Second Kind (CEII)
  • Causes physical change in environment
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind (CEIII)
  • Occupants seen, but no interaction
  • Close Encounters of the Fourth Kind (CEIV)
  • Interaction with Occupants

Eyewitness Evidence
  • Eyewitnesses with little to gain continue to
    report seeing strange craft in the sky, for which
    science can offer no explanation

Kenneth Arnolds Sighting
  • Location Cascade Mountains, Washington
  • Date June 24, 1947
  • Nine disk-like objects flying in formation
  • Estimated at 1,200 mph
  • Started Flying Saucer craze

Japan Airlines Flight 1628
  • Pilot and Crew spotted UFO at 39,000 feet while
    on approach to Anchorage, Alaska
  • Air Control confirmed the sighting
  • Military Hercules sent to intercept but object

Belgium Triangle
  • UFO sighted thousands of times in 1989-90 in
  • Described as giant black triangle with lights on
  • Leon Brenig, a professor of physics at local
    university, commented that it in no way behaved
    like an ordinary man-made aircraft

Physical Evidence
  • Occurs during CEII, CEIII, CEIV
  • Commonly is
  • Scorch marks
  • Increased radiation levels
  • Impact marks
  • Psychological impact on animals or humans
  • Physical damage to animal or human witness

Aircraft Disappearance
  • October 21, 1978
  • Bass Straight, Australia
  • Green, star-shaped object
  • Collided with Frederick Valentich piloting his
    Cessna aircraft at 4,500 feet
  • Aircraft and UFO disappeared
  • Neither Cessna or Valentichs body was ever found

Cash/Landrum Incident
  • Betty Cash, Vicki Landrum, and Colby Landrum
  • December 28, 1980
  • Near Dayton, Texas
  • Encountered craft hovering above road
  • After leaving car, grew frightened, and drove off
  • Later developed radiation sickness and cancer

Classic Abduction Experience
  • Involves
  • Sense of fear and paralysis
  • Feel a presence
  • Moved onto the craft
  • Medical examination
  • Sometimes given message or tour of craft
  • Wake up next morning in general location of where
    they came from

Project Blue Book
  • Conducted by U.S. Air Force
  • 1948-1969
  • Hired prominent scientists as consultants,
    including Dr. J. Allen Hynek
  • Discovered that most sightings were actually
    mundane objects, astronomical phenomena, or
    meteorological phenomena

  • However, hundreds of the investigations remain
    unsolved to this day
  • Stopped in 1969 due to lack of political interest
    and funding
  • Dr. J. Allen Hynek then created Hynek Center for
    the Study of UFOs
  • Foreign governments have conducted similar
    investigations and have also found hundreds of
    unsolved cases each

  • Overwhelming amounts of evidence presented by
    eyewitness accounts, physical evidence, and
    government investigations
  • Scientific community will not accept Ufology yet
    even with the evidence because they only accept
    things once they know the cause of phenomena, not
    just results

  • The evidence determines that UFOs exist, now more
    data is needed to find out what they are.
