Welcome to the world's largest and most detailed database of reported UFO sightings. If you have witnessed a UFO event and wish to report your experience, we invite you to do so here. We request that you provide as much documentation as possible to support the credibility of your claim. We respect your privacy and intentions. Our intention is to provide sufficient evidence so that the worldwide scientific communities may have a permanent record of every genuine event.
Thank you for your interest in submitting your UFO sighting to MUFON. Each case file brings us one step closer to uncovering the truth...
MUFON receives between 500 and 1000 UFO Sightings a month from all across the globe. These include , but are not limited to reports of:
orbs of light
and crop circles.
In order to effectively catalogue and investigate all these reports, we ask that you submit your UFO sightings reports, with photos and videos attached. Do this by clicking on the button below and filling out the MUFON UFO reporting form (takes 5-10 minutes). The information you provide will go a long way toward helping us solve the UFO mystery.
Once you complete the form, click the SUBMIT button and your report will be assigned an official MUFON Case Number, and be sent to the MUFON State or National Director where your sighting occurred for follow-up. Your help solving the UFO mystery, one case at a time, is greatly appreciated.
Please read the following FAQs so that you may understand how UFO sighting submissions work:
Who sees my personal contact information?
We treat your personal information with great care and respect. Your contact information goes to the State Director where your sighting occurred and to the MUFON Field Investigator assigned to your case. From a computer system standpoint we store your personal information separate from your case information in such a way that the public cannot see it, and only a handful of people in MUFON have access to it.
What if I wish to remain anonymous?
You have the option of checking the anonymous box on your sighting report. This means that we will never use your name in relation to your sighting report without first asking your permission. MUFON’s standard operating procedure regardless of how you check the anonymous box is to never share witness names or contact information. On the rare occasion we are contacted by media about a case, we will always ask if you would like your name associated with the case publicly. Again, this is very rare.
What happens when I submit my report?
Once you press the SUBMIT button on your sighting report it is automatically routed to the State or National Director where your sighting took place. The state director then assigns your case to one of his or her Field Investigators for review and further follow-up as needed. This may, or may not, include a telephone or on-site visit and interview depending on the nature of the report.
How long will submitting my UFO report take?
The MUFON UFO sightings database is the largest of it's kind in the world. It is also the most meticulous and scientifically-minded. That being said, the UFO report form is exceptionally detailed. This way we can better sort the cases that are submitted to us and better analyze them. Please fill out all of the fields that apply to your unique case. This should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
I'm attaching a photo or video with my report. What happens to this?
MUFON has a staff of volunteer Photo Analysts who review each and every photo/video received by MUFON. They use a number of different techniques to identify the authenticity of a photo or video and try to render an opinion on whether it is real or fake, and what the origin of the object in the photo might be. This information is then taken into account by the FI assigned in completing his/her report and selecting the final case disposition.
What is a case disposition?
Each case that is investigated is given a final case disposition by the MUFON Field investigator assigned to the case. This is the investigator’s assessment of what the investigation found. The four case dispositions that a case can be marked are UNKNOWN, IFO, Hoax, or Insufficient Data.
What if I do not agree with the Field Investigator’s findings?
You, as the witness, may request a case review. To do so, send your statement of why you disagree (one page max) and any facts to back your statement along with your case number, or date of your sighting to email@example.com. Your case will then be reviewed by a committee of three individuals and you will be made aware of their findings. If after this review you do not agree with the findings of the review committee your case may be appealed to the MUFON Science Review Board (See our website for more information on the SRB). The findings of the SRB will be the final word on the disposition of your case. Remember, regardless of how your case is marked from a disposition standpoint, your case and all the information you input will still be available in the MUFON database for use by researchers worldwide.
