What To Do WHen You See A UFO- Proper Action

If you should  happen to have an encounter with a UFO, the following

   guidelines will provide help…..

         1. Remain calm and don’t panic.

         2. Do NOT attempt to approach the craft if it is on the ground

            or hovering at a low altitude.  There  have been many cases

            in which  witnesses have heat and/or radiation  burns  from

            approaching too close to a craft.

         3. Do  NOT  attempt  to  make  contact with any of the craft’s

            occupants.  Your intentions  may  be  mistaken as an act of


         4. REPORT  YOUR SIGHTING. By all means report  what  you  have

            seen, but  don’t  bother reporting it to the Air Force, the

            FBI, or local Police.  These  organizations  maintain there

            are no UFO’s and as such will simply file your report away.

            Instead report your sighting to a UFO organization such as

            CUFON, UFORN,  MUFON,  CAUS, or any of a  dozen  other  UFO

            groups.  Chances are these organizations will send a “field

            investigator” to  personally  sit down with you and discuss

            your sighting.

         5. If possible, take a picture  of  the  craft  with a camera.

            DON’T use a flash.

            A flash  on an ordinary camera is only good  for  about  20

            feet and  all  you  will accomplish is letting the UFO know

            exactly where you are (if it didn’t know already.)

         6. Note if possible the exact  time of the sighting. This will

            aid in determining the duration of the sighting.  Also look

            around for  familiar  objects  that you can use to estimate

            the size of the craft.

         7. Notice if possible any  unusual  colors  or  shape  of  the

            craft, did the craft produce any sound and  if  so what was


         8. Notice if possible any related effects caused by the craft,

            i.e. electrical  malfunctions  of  electronic  devices (car

            ignition, radios, etc).   Look  for  ground effects such as

            dust being blown about beneath the craft.

         9. After the craft has left look for any “Traces.”

            A trace  would  be any physical sign the craft  was  there,

            i.e.  flattened grass, unusual soil patterns etc.


            that to the UFOlogist.

        10. As  quickly  as possible write down exactly what you saw or

            dictate it into a tape recorder.

            As time passes the memory of exact detail may fade.
