UFO Evidence was the first publication to take this phenomenon seriously. This publication preceded the government's version, Project Blue Book.

It is said (As in the case with project Blue Book) that some 90% of UFO cases can be easily dismissed by natural phenomenon, poor eye witness accounts etc.

The other 10% can not be explained.

This book focuses not only on the 10% that defy explanation, but more specifically on those sightings by credible, and indeed in most cases, professional observers such as policemen, military personnel, pilots and scientists.

Most credible are those sightings that span over a period of time which involves multiple sightings (Seeing the same object(s)) over a wide geographical area.

For those who are interested in an empirically scientific examination of the phenomenon, this is the definitive source for information on the subject.

The writing maybe to dry for many, as this is scientific analysis, no speculations by the author or witnesses, just report after report. What stands out as most remarkable, to those who can get through the whole book, is that patterns begin to emerge, especially in some of the well laid out tables of events. One begins to see that many people, over time and geographical locations, are seeing very the same things.

For those that refuse to acknowledge the possibility that UFO's even exist, nothing short of an alien press conference will suffice as evidence.

For those who are open minded, and acknowledge that we can't possibly be the only intelligent life in this infinite universe, this book is nothing short of mind-blowing.

For my own part, I always view any such topic of the extraordinary, through a scientific lens.

Format: Paperback
This is a 1997 reprint of (the late) Richard Hall's original 1964 documentary report written for the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena, based in Washington DC. The original 1964 report received both national and international news coverage, and attention from the US Congress.

The author introduces the work thus:

"Little has changed since 1964. Skeptics have hardened their attitudes, science and government seem unable to deal with the issue, and many people continue to make poor and unconvincing UFO reports. However, significant reports by highly credible witnesses have multiplied. All of the patterns set forth in `The UFO Evidence' (1964) have been strongly confirmed by repeated observations, and several new patterns have emerged as well

...the content was eye-opening at the time [1964] and remains even now an important summary of the case for real UFOs. Over thirty years of data since then have totally replicated its findings."

The original book is hard to find and expensive. The reprint is a paperback running to 170 pages, in report format rather than a narrative text. Reports are categorised by type of witness (Air Force pilots, or astronomers and engineers for example), duration, nature of evidence, other electronic and environmental effects and so forth, some laid out in graphic tables and sometimes illustrated. There is a chapter on the Air Force investigation, and one on foreign reports.

Overall this is an impeccable - and so highly and sought-after - work of reference in the history of hard-data, scientific research into the UFO phenomenon. It's not, however, easy or entertaining reading, and nor is it fanciful or speculative: it's not meant to be. If you want holiday beach reading, best look elsewhere.

This is a great find. Wonderful to know that this information has not been lost to time. I have already made two references to information included in the book regarding other investigations I have worked on.

Some folks are carping about this book because it is not a narrative account of the UFO phenomenon per se, but rather a catalog of sightings compiled by NICAP spanning the early years of the phenomenon - 1947 thru 1962. Now, there are some short narrative accounts and clippings of news articles and the like in reference to the summary catalog accounts, but for the most part it is this catalog of what the folks at NICAP and the editor Richard Hall deemed to be some of the more interesting and better substantiated reports that came into their offices during those years - a lot of it from the Blue Book archives. I really like having it in this format because as you read through the different reports and categories - just the sheer volume of high quality reports - you start to get the sense of just how big a deal all this really was in the early days. There really was a flying saucer craze sweeping the nation and for good reason. Even the government was deep into it back in the day. Today you might hear something interesting once every six months, but back in the 40's, 50's & 60's this was clearly a phenomenon that was making waves on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. People were aware of UFO's - and judging by many of the reports and who they were made by it is clear why that was the case. It also became clear - from the Air Force and government's point of view why they had to get themselves out of the business of investigating and reporting UFO's - because it is hard to debunk a phenomenon if hundreds of your best pilots, officers and scientists (military and civilian) are filing reports of high strangeness on a weekly basis. I found it to be a very compelling body of evidence and a window into the world from when this phenomenon exploded into the public's consciousness.Read more ›
