HUGE Book of UFO Sightings
Surfing around Amazon looking for new UFO book to read, I came across what may be the largest collection of readily available sightings ever available to the masses. Now I know MUFON has a huge library, but those are not easily available to armchair researchers. This new book examines 100,000+ sightings over the last 15 years. I bet a lot of you didn't even think that many sightings existed. Just imagine having that much information available at your fingertips. Granted, not all of them may be credible, but it sure would be fun to read through them.
Richard Dolan assembled a two volume series a few years back, called UFOs and the National Security State, but it focused on more known sightings and specific sightings of interest. Those books are worth having on your library shelf, but I have had a goal in mind of using mapping software to plot as many sightings as possible in an effort to find trends in the data. This new book might just be the reference I need for the project.
According to the authors own description,
"The first book of its kind, the UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2015 presents data and analysis for 100,000+ sightings of unidentified flying objects reported by individuals during the first 15 years of the 21st century. Since 1969 the government has claimed no interest in the subject, and the press and media either ignore or ridicule any mention of UFOs. Yet citizen scientists and non-governmental organizations have continued to this day the research into this important subject: this book seeks to make the hardest data available accessible to the general public, as well as other UFO researchers. The book is organized into beginning narrative sections including analysis of UFO sightings, frequently asked questions, and how to use this book, followed by the data. Charts, tables, and maps are presented of summary data for the entire US and individual chapters for all 50 states (down to the county level) plus the District of Columbia. Aimed at the serious UFO researcher, this comprehensive volume is also of value to academic and public libraries, news organizations, and anyone who is interested in what is flying in the skies over their heads where they live."
The UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2015 was just released on March 24, 2017. Its been assembled by Cheryl Costa and Linda Miller Costa. Now such a big book doesn't come cheap, but it does seem like a fair price to get such a large assemblage of information in one place.
