The Mutual UFO Network known as MUFON focuses on the scientific study of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP). MUFON began in 1969 and is still the oldest organization in its field. UAP and UFO sightings have long been investigated by MUFON because the phenomena have the potential to make a profound impact on society, so this organization collects the essential data and information needed to educate. MUFON has 4,600 members around the world in 46 chapters and 1,100 volunteers nationwide.
I. Investigate UFO sightings and collect the data in the MUFON Database for use by researchers worldwide.
II. Promote research on UFOs to discover the true nature of the phenomenon, with an eye towards scientific breakthroughs, and improving life on our planet.
III. Educate the public on the UFO phenomenon and its potential impact on society.
Despite being a taboo subject for a long time, UAP discussions are becoming more mainstream. On Tuesday, May 17th, the first Congressional hearing in more than 50 years was held. The focus was on military personnel UFO sightings. According to a statement from the Mutual UFO Network, they “Applaud members of the U.S. House of Representatives specifically, the House Intelligence Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation (C3) Subcommittee.”
“I am excited that Congress is taking this critical first step in disclosing what is known,” said MUFON Executive Director David MacDonald. “Through our knowledge and database of sightings, we know that there are many unanswered questions. With over 10,000 reports a year, MUFON has a 92% rate of being able to explain the sightings. We hope that Congress and the Department of Defense continue to be transparent with the American people. MUFON stands ready to assist the government in any capacity,” said MacDonald.
With UAPs now a mainstream subject, a more significant bipartisan collective effort is required to push for more comprehensive legislation and more detailed information to be shared with the public. In addition to providing assistance with UFO sightings to the federal government, the organization will coordinate data collection and processing for those sightings. MUFON has consistently worked with Congress and will continue for the benefit of humanity.
