The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the world's oldest and largest UFO phenomenon investigative body, offers eight practical UFO research tools that anyone can use to scientifically track reported sightings.
Live UFO Map
To view the latest UFO sightings mapped in real time, access the Live UFO Map. Track where UFOs have been reported, read the field notes of the observer and check out images from the sightings. You also can see the total number of reported events from the last week, month and year.
UFO Case Database
MUFON members can re-visit or research past UFO sightings and get updates on their favorite cases through MUFON’s Case Management System. This is updated regularly with the latest news and case information. And anyone can access the last 20 sighting reports from around the world.
From the Aurora, Texas crash in the late 1800s, to the Roswell incident, to the Phoenix Lights event, this database offers detailed reporting on more than 20 of the most famous UFO cases in history.
Another great way to stay up-to-date on recent UFO encounters is through the latest UFO video available from MUFON case witnesses. View the videos, hear first-hand testimonies and make your own determination as to a UFO report’s legitimacy.

Use these and you’ll soon be able to recognize what is fake and what is genuine. You do not need to be a professional image analyst to use these tools.
