    Please dont turn into a disinformation writer like the other UFO examiners. So far so good, thanks.

    Good job. I am impressed to see how many reports there have been. I never would have know.

    I spent many years, 17, in mufon. It aint what it use to be, and perhaps more important, its not what you think it is..WWW.gov.agent.com..

    O.K. Bluperu, This must be some type of joke . . .MUFON may very well not be what I think it is, but it is also not what you purport it to be . . . I went to your website and it was non existent. Are you a government conspiracy theorist? What else about your message is untrue?

    MUFON's base is eroding thanks to Carrion and his tv efforts to discredit real witnesses of UFO events.
    I for one would Carrion to disclose MUFON's agreement with big time MUFON STAR Team financier Bob Bigelow? Something's awash with Carrion's group efforts, and those efforts seem to continually distort reports,scientific analysis, photos and videos of Mom and Pa Witnesses to UFO events.

    i saw a ufo on thursday september 10th around 9:30 pm coming back from a pick-up basketball game. The shape was a triangal and there were 3 bright lights on each corner. I could not see anything but the 3 lights. the ufo was about 2 football fieles high or 2 hondered yards high. This object was not moving or making any noise. When we went in to my friends yard and looked back it was gone and it left no tralel. i live in Vermont

    My mother, father and myself were sitting on my back porch and saw a "spot" in the sky. It was a clear sky.. And all of the sudden from what looked to be a spot, a light shone down from it in a triangle shape the further it went down the brighter the top was. It looked like someone was in the sky holding a flashlight down. About 10 seconds later it faded back up and disappeared. It was absolutely amazing and unexplainable! I'll never forget it! Thank god my parents were with me and saw it at the same time or NOONE would have believed me!! I live in a small town, in Pa!!
