We aim to be the inquisitive mind's refuge seeking answers to the most ancient question, “Are we alone in the universe?” Whether you have a UFO report to share or UFO investigator aspirations, MUFON is here for you.
It takes money to have a headquarters with full-time staff to run an organization of our size and be responsive to our membership. These costs include computer systems, phones, internet, and other support required to keep MUFON running on all cylinders providing our valuable service to the world. Help support MUFON’s costs annually so we can keep delivering the latest UFO news and research worldwide.
UFO Experiencer Research
We have acquired a scientific based test that will help with determining what exactly is going on with a potential experiencer who is reporting otherworldly contact. However, this test needs to be computerized and put on our website. Once this is done it will allow our experiencer research team to better determine those with a true abduction experience versus those who require different follow-up and support.
MUFON would like to create a UFO research library second to none. Currently, we have over 3,000 book titles in-house as well as photographic and video files that need organization and a physical location to house them.
MUFON CMS Front End
Today over 50% of our UFO reports are coming to us via cell phones and tablets versus traditional computers. To make it easier to report a UFO to MUFON the front-end to CMS must be re-written so that it is responsive for these devices. The blue-print for doing this is at www.mufonredesign.com. Once there, just click on Report a UFO to see what the new design will look like. This will increase the quality and quantity of UFO experiences being reported to MUFON and hence the world.
We are in the process of redesigning our website to be simpler and easier to use but need your help to do so. It will provide basic information on UFO sightings to the public and have a member’s only section where detailed information on UFO sightings and other perks will be available to MUFON members only. Once logged in you will be able to manage your own MUFON account, membership renewal, and personal profile at your convenience.
We have built and are now testing an online system for storing and retrieving UFO sighting information from multiple sources (MUFON, NICAP, Project Blue Book, private researchers, etc.) and source types (paper, electronic, photographic, video, handwritten, etc.). This system will be used to archive both computerized UFO reports as well as mountains of paper and digital documents stored at MUFON headquarters and in other researcher’s files to allow correlation of reports based on location, date, and type of case. This will be the database for UFO Research Projects worldwide. MARRS stands for the MUFON Anomaly Research and Reporting System.
