10 tips for investigating flying saucers

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Between 1947 and 1969, the U.S. Air Force recorded 12,618 sightings of strange phenomena under Project BLUE BOOK — 701 of those sightings remain "unidentified," according to CIA.gov.

Project BLUE BOOK was based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton. 

The CIA wasn't directly affiliated with Project BLUE BOOK, though the agency played a large role in investigating UFOs in the late 1940s and early '50s.

After decades of investigations, one thing is certain: The CIA and USAF have learned a thing or two about how to verify a UFO sighting.

The CIA put together the list below, compiling tips from their history and methodology of investigating “flying saucer intelligence.” The list is available in full format at CIA.gov.

10 Tips for Investigating Flying Saucers

  1. Establish a group to investigate and evaluate sightings.
  2. Determine the objectives of your investigation.
  3. Consult with experts. 
  4. Create a reporting system to organize incoming cases. 
  5. Eliminate false positives.
  6. Develop methodology to ID common aircraft and other aerial phenomena.
  7. Examine witness documentation.
  8. Conduct controlled experiments. 
  9. Gather and test physical and forensic evidence. 
  10. Discourage false reporting.

The National UFO Reporting Center keeps an online database of all reported UFO sightings. The listings are searchable by event date, state, and shape of the ostensibly spotted aircraft.
