Project Blue Book

Although Dr. Hynek initially helped the Air Force to discredit many reports on unidentified flying objects, he became convinced over time that a small part of them could not be considered as a joke or a mistaken identification as phenomena natural, and that these cases could actually represent something extraordinary – even alien visitors from other planets.

When the Air Force closed the Blue Book Project in 1969, Dr. Hynek decided to create his own organization to continue his studies on the phenomenon, through impartial research and scientific methods. Starting from Evanston, Illinois, but based in Chicago, CUFOS continues to be a small research organization that subjects all cases to scientific analysis. His vast archive includes numerous and reliable reports, inherited from the now deceased private research group of the NICAP, one of the most authoritative, that between 1950 and 1960 carried out numerous investigations on the phenomenon. Following the death of Dr. Hynek in 1986, the CUFOS was named in his honor: J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies. The current director is Dr. Mark Rodeghier, who graduated from the University of Sussex obtaining a master’s degree in astrophysics and a doctorate in sociology from the University of Illinois.

Why do the territories of the United States of America continue to be those with the highest number of UFO sightings? Perhaps the explanation should be sought in the intense air activity in the skies above the numerous military bases strategically located throughout the country? Why is there a certain discrepancy in the number of reports sent from the east coast compared with those of the Pacific coast? Apparently, the extraterrestrials seem to prefer the west coast of the United States, probably due to the temperate climate, with some exceptions for the hinterland where they were marked on a map what should be presumed hotspots located mainly in northern Minnesota and many others spread mainly in Missouri, Illinois and part of Florida.

The apparent media indifference to the UFO issue could be part of a much more elaborate cover-up program orchestrated by the US government, which some conspiracy officials say, would be in league with the ambassadors of some alien nations who are currently collaborating with the military leaders inside the infamous Area 51

Infected governments, will they ever tell us the truth Original article by Alessandro Brizzi.

All these theories never proven so far have become part of the UFO folklore made in the USA, which, as everyone knows, have a tendency to exasperate and mystify an aerial phenomenon that deserves to be addressed in a different way.
