An Explanation of MUFON and the Organization Agenda
The Mutual UFO Network is an international volunteer association that is focused on investigating reported sightings of unidentified flying objects and alien abductions. They perform intricate assessment and analysis of cases that they choose to accept for verification as either an explainable or unexplainable phenomena. Though they are predominantly based in the United States because that is where most reports are anchored, they are also very active in both Central and South America, as well as many European communities.
MUFON is a general outgrowth of the Arial Phenomena Research Organization. The initial MUFON group formed in 1969 and was based in Illinois where many sitings have been reported. The organization has grown to more than 3000 members and is now inclusive of all international reports. Reports of unidentified flying objects tend to be centered in certain regions of the globe, and local affiliations of the organization are native to these reporting regions. Originating in the United States Midwest region, they have now extended to significant areas in southwest U.S. and Mexico.
MUFON also works in association with other specialized research groups dealing with extra-terrestrial reports, including abductions. Though this phenomena is greatly unreported in mainstream media, the number of witnesses and reported cases is extensive and credible. MUFON focuses on the most credible of all reports and routinely dismisses many claims. However, there are also many claimed sightings that are determined as valid and unexplainable.
The Mutual Unidentified Flying Object Network is currently based in Cincinnati, Ohio. They utilize the same mission as the original group that was based in Quincy, Illinois. The organization has produced multiple television shows and series involved in explaining what are otherwise unexplainable events concerning unusual aircraft or events that cannot be verified by the federal authorities of each involved country.
