UFO REPORTING FORM


 

 

Sighting Questionnaire: Computer Input

About this Form

  • Scope - This report form contains selections covering every aspect of previously recorded UFO encounters. Many of these aspects may not apply to your experience. If a question does not apply, or you do not recall, simply pass over it without making a selection.
  • Help - Help is provided for each question. Please allow at least 15-20 minutes to complete the form. Try to complete each question that is relevant to your experience.
  • In your own words - Near the end of the form is a space for your narrative description of the event. As this description is essential for our complete understanding, please be as specific as possible in your account.
  • Anonymity - Below the spaces for witness identification near the bottom of the form are "yes" and "no" selections that indicate whether you or other witnesses to the event request to remain anonymous. MUFON makes every effort to ensure the anonymity of those who request it. However, because MUFON is a volunteer organization, no legal assurance of anonymity is offered.
  • Completeness of the data - Reports that do not contain such key information as the year the event occurred and the location are of limited use for research purposes. Reports of faraway lights in the sky without additional detail also have limited use.
  • What happens to the data? - By submitting this form you agree to allow the data you enter to be used for research by MUFON members. An authorized MUFON representative may contact you to clarify the circumstances of your experience.
  • Submitting your report - At the bottom of the form is a "Submit" button for you to submit your report to MUFON. You can change your entries or cancel the report at any time until you click "Submit".
