If there's one book that you want to read on the UFO phenomena, then I'd suggest getting a copy of this one. J. Allan Hynek originally worked on Project Blue Book, the U.S. Air Force's attempt to "study" and ultimately debunk, the numerous UFO sightings that were occuring after 1947. A trained scientist, he was a skeptic at first, but soon came to the conclusion that in a very small number of cases, something truly unexplained had occured. In a field where much has been published that is simply outrageous and fabricated, The Hynek UFO Report is rational, logical and realistic. I myself am somewhat of a skeptic, and I appreciate the manner in which Hynek addresses the issue; while still not totally convinced that UFOs are alien spacecraft, I have to concede that something unexplained has been happening in the skies over many nations on this planet.

One of the true pioneers in the field of Ufology (UFO research) was Dr. J. Allen Hynek (1910-1986), an astronomer at Northwestern University in Chicago. From 1948 to 1969 he served as the top scientific consultant to "Project Blue Book", the US Air Force's official group which investigated UFO sightings and incidents. What makes Hynek especially credible is that he started out as a debunker - he thought UFOs were "nonsense" and helped the Air Force to debunk most sightings. However, as the years passed he gradually became convinced that some UFO sightings were not hoaxes or misidentified "normal" phenomena such as stars, balloons, meteors, etc. He also became increasingly unhappy with Project Blue Book's highly negative attitude towards UFOs, and in the late sixties he became openly critical of how Blue Book's staff "investigated" UFO reports (in many cases they didn't bother to make even a brief investigation of a UFO sighting - they simply made up an explanation and filed it away). When the Air Force shut down Project Blue Book in 1969, Dr. Hynek founded his own organization to study UFO reports (called the Center for UFO Studies, or CUFOS, it still exists today). He also worked tirelessly - albeit with limited success - to encourage his fellow scientists to take the UFO phenomenon more seriously. In the 1970's Dr. Hynek wrote two "serious" studies of the UFO phenomenon, and both books are today considered to be "classics" in the study of UFOs. The "Hynek UFO Report", originally published in 1977, offers UFO cases taken directly from the once-secret files of Project Blue Book. Dr.Read more ›

Basically the government started Project Blue Book as a way to stifle public interest/awareness in UFO's - for whatever reasons they might have had. Whether they were trying to reduce public hysteria (especially after the 1947 Kenneth Arnold sighting), or they were trying to debunk the whole phenomenon altogether, no one really knows. All that mattered was that no one talked about UFO's. But despite Blue Book's attempt to label everything a hoax, many cases still went unsolved.

Dr. J. Allen Hynek is one of the true "legends" in the history of Ufology. Indeed, he is regarded by many as the "founding father" of UFO research. "The Hynek UFO Report" presents dozens of credible UFO cases that Dr. Hynek investigated during his years with Project Blue Book, the Air Force's top-secret investigation of UFOs from 1948-1969. This is a true "must" for any UFO buff. Highly recommended!
