Allen J. HYNEKAcknowledements ii-iii

Irvng ANDERSONThe periodicity of flaps 1-5
Abstract: This paper presents the preliminary results of the examination of the periodicity of flaps through the use of UFOCAT. Mini-flaps have been found that provide additional support for Dr. David Saunders' prediction of a flap in the latter part of 1977. The analysis by longitude allows for the tracking of the UFO phenomenon from the West Coast (USA) in 1947 until it passed into the Atlantic Ocean, causing the East Coast flap of 1973. Further research in this area may result in almost total predictability of when and where a UFO sighting may occur.

ACOSAn overview of the UFO phenomenon in Australia and some notes on investigation into that subject 6-10
Abstract: This paper tells briefly how Australia entered the field of Ufology, and relates the government policy and attitude towards UFOs. An overall view of UFO organizations in Australia is given, and brief sections are devoted to flap areas, patterns in UFO encounters, and close encounters. Results of the first Australian UFO Conference, attended by all the ACOS organizations, are given.

Bradley Earl AYERSThe UFO field investigator - Reporter of researcher 11-14
Abstract: The challenge confronting the serious UFO investigator is unprecedented and unique; our approach to the problem must become more imaginative and comprehensive. The field investigator, after exploring and eliminating all logical explanations for a sighting, must probe the only remaining evidence - the human observer. In the absence of physical evidence, the observer must become the object of the investigation and the focal point of scientific study. The field investigator must become a 'behavior researcher' capable of perceiving and interpreting the human element as well as reporting material facts.

Vicente-Juan BALLESTER OLMOSAre UFO sightings related to population? 15-24
Abstract: The author's catalogue of 200 UFO landings in Spain confirms the existence of the wave phenomenon. To explore its possible dependence on sociological causes, a comparison is made between the main features of mass hysteria and of UFO sightings, revealing several notable differences. Other sociological hypotheses are reviewed negatively, leading to the conclusion that UFO waves are related only to the increase in actual UFO activity. Previous research on UFO cases versus population density is examined, with the conclusion that close encounters tend to manifest themselves in sparsely populated areas, whereas high-altitude phenomena have a random spatial distribution and are positively correlated with population. Statistics derived from Spanish close encounter reports are compatible with this model.

Ted BLOECHERThe Stonehenge incidents, january 1975 25-38
Abstract: In January 1975, a Close Encounter, Type III (UFO with occupants) , occurred in North Bergen, New Jersey, right on Manhattan's doorstep. In the course of investigations, from November 1975 through March 1976, it was possible not only to locate an independent witness to this remarkable event, but to unearth other UFO experiences in the same locality as well. These independent, unpublicized reports appear to be merely the tip of the iceberg; they amply illustrate the UFO "invisibility" problem in microcosm, of manifestations that occur daily on a global scale, and at a rate that we have so far most certainly underestimated.

Richard BONENFANTA preliminary report of UFO coverage in the Knickerbocker News, New Yord, 1965-1969 39-49
Abstract: In order to determine the usefulness of newspaper articles as a source of local UFO sighting reports, the author has surveyed the coverage of such stories in an urban upstate New York newspaper, the KNICKERBOCKER NEWS, for the period 1965 through 1969. A total of 72 such articles was found. Information from these articles is summarized in the text and tables, and presented fully in the appendices

Mario DESARIO, Jeffrey KRETSCHMobile UFO study van 50-61
Abstract: This paper describes the equipment and instrumentation to be used in attempts at field observation of UFOs. The equipment will be placed in a van and transported to sites of possible UFO activity. The van will provide fast reaction capability and on-site investigation. The immediate purpose of this project is to obtain basic information on the phenomenon, specifically: (1) quantitative measures of the energy emitted from the surface of the "object;" (2) spectra of the phenomena; and (3) high quality photographs and movie films. In the event sightings are not made directly, sighting reports can be investigated in cooperation with local investigators. The instruments can also be calibrated through studies of natural phenomena.

Ann DRUFFELSanta Catalina Island recurring "cloud-cigar" 62-74
Abstract: Since 1962 there have been recurring sightings of "cloudcigars" over the Catalina Channel in Southern California. These hovering, "energized" clouds are reported both day and night, and are accompanied by sightings of smaller, disc-like objects miles inland, while the larger objects remain high above the Pacific Ocean between the mainland and Catalina Island, 20 miles off the coast. Available facts indicate the possibility that the small craft "materialize" within the enveloping cloud. Ways are suggested in which CUFOS can obtain cooperation from civilian and military authorities in monitoring these phenomena.

Tom GATESUFOs and public awareness 75-79
Abstract: In almost no other scientific endeavor is the data source so intricately linked with the public as it is in UFO research. Our ability to work effectively in gathering this data is directly connected with the image of UFOs held by the public, collectively and individually. A definite program of public education is needed to increase awareness of where matters stand. The media unfortunately still represent the greatest barrier to better awareness. Definite programs on our part can go a long way toward a better image of UFO research.

Loren GROSSThe UFO wave of 1947 - California: june 25-july 16 80-88
Abstract: This paper discusses UFO reports to be found in small California newspapers during the 1947 wave. An attempt was made to discover any striking patterns that might be discerned from such a survey. A map is provided to illustrate geographical distribution, as is a chart which illustrates the number of reports daily

Richard F. HAINESPsichophysical and biological aspects of viewing very bright objects 89-96
Abstract: This paper discusses briefly the dynamics of visual adaptation, selected characteristics of solar radiation, and various abiotic-opthalmological effects of ultraviolet, visible and infrared radiation sources upon the eye. It deals further with the following perceptual effects of viewing very bright sources: hue shifts; object size changes (irradiation phenomenon); object shape changes; and afterimage formation and decay. Suggestions are included for the UFO field investigator, to help him obtain witness data that could be useful in understanding more accurately the basic nature of the high luminance source.

Richard HALLScreening out UFO "noise" 97
Abstract: This paper briefly presents a proposal that The Center for UFO Studies sponsor a compilation of data on known aerial phenomena and events that tend to generate false UFO reports, to be circulated to UFO groups and publications for use in screening UFO reports.

Harold I. HEATONPreliminary studies of animal reaction to UFOs 98-109
(French translation Les Extraterrestres Series 2 N. 6 Avril/1978 ETUDES PRELIMINAIRES SUR LES REACTIONS DES ANIMAUX EN PRESENCE DES OVNI, pp. 7-8)
Abstract: An attempt is made to extract physical data on UFOs from old data by exploring the interaction of UFOs with the bio-environment. Animal reaction cases have been extracted from 30 of the most objective books on UFOs and from catalogues. Each sighting is subjected to a standard set of questions in the following areas: details of the sighting, object(s), human observer(s), and animal (s) involved. Attention is paid to the simultaneous presence of unexcited animals. Responses are digitized for computer analysis and pattern identification. A control group is formed by cases in which an animal is reported to react to an identified object or to a hoax. The principal obstacle to project success is the lack of response from individual authors concerning additional case details.

Wido HOVILLEUFOs and parapsycology 110-111
(French translation UFO Quebec No 6 /1976 UFOs et parapsychologie, pp. 20)
Abstract: The recent advent of writers who probe the parapsychological and paranormal aspects of the UFO phenomenon has generated concern among many UFO researchers who study the phenomenon in all its aspects. Emphasizing the parapsychological or paranormal aspect as the sole explanation may lead the scientific community and the public to the assumption that the Flying Saucer phenomenon has nothing physical about it. In the long run, there is only one way to solve the problem, and that is the tested method of scientific investigation using physical data.

David JACOBSUFo research, the eth, and other murky problems 112-118
Abstract: Theories that assign a single origin or purpose to UFOs fail to deal adequately with the large number and repetitive nature of the sightings. Similarly, ideas that assign psychic origins to UFOs fail to account for the great majority of UFO sightings, and supply insufficient answers to trace and occupant cases. Rather than speculating in ways that encompass the totality of the UFO phenomenon, it may be more fruitful to come to a more pluralistic conception of the phenomenon, which might, for example, be based on levels of technological development. This pluralistic conception leads us to conclude that the UFO phenomenon is more varied and complex than previously thought, and allows us to encompass the variety, number, and strangeness of reports.

Benton JAMISONSome proposals: modest, immodest, and maybe fundable 119-132
Abstract: The UFO phenomenon is the source of a continuing supply of raw data not easily digestible, hence mostly ignored, by science. The task of separating the psychological components of this phenomenon from its physical ones, to say nothing of understanding the interaction between these components, would provide the social sciences with an opportunity to test out its theories and techniques in, for it, almost virgin territory. This paper presents a detailed rationale for a proposal designed to determine whether or not there exist significant sociological and psychological differences between the class of people who have undergone a non-trivial UFO experience and the class of those who have not.

Robert KLINNPhotomicrography: a way to salvage film images of UFOs 133-140
Abstract: A technology has been adopted which makes it possible to obtain visual clarity, reliable measurements, and qualitative information from some UFO negatives and transparencies. Extremely small images of UFOs on films, previously blown up with photographic enlargers, have been significantly improved in clarity and have yielded increased useful magnification levels through the use of the precision lenses and techniques of a state-of-theart photomicrographic system. Photomicrographic analyses are presented of not-yet-published UFO films, including a series of stills authenticated by multiple witnesses and involving a recent UFO car chase. As many images otherwise not useful may be salvaged, a call is proposed for old original films to be submitted to the Center for UFO Studies, for reprocessing by photomicrography.

Alvin H. LAWSONHypnotic regressions of alleged CE III encounters: ambiguities on the road to UFOs 141-151
Abstract: Hypnotic regression of alleged CE III abductees may be ultimately inconclusive and/or otherwise unsatisfactory as viable data, because of inherent ambiguities in methodology in the investigator's tactics, and in the witness' personality and perceptions.

Bruce S. MACCABEEOn the possibility that McMinnville photos show a distant unidentified object (UO) 152-163
Abstract: The McMinnville photos have been reanalyzed to improve the photometric estimate of distance to the UO. The detailed analysis has included the use of an actual film exposure curve, the results of a laboratory study of veiling glare, and the results of a measurement of the relative brightness of vertical and horizontal white surfaces under environmental illumination. The new photometric analysis shows that the bottom of the UO is too bright for it to have been a nearby white (paper) surface.

James McCAMPBELLUFO interfercence with automobile electrical system, Part 1: headlights 164-182
Abstract: Headlight failures normally occur when a UFO is directly in front of a vehicle at low altitude. This location suggests that the headlamp reflector functions as a miniature dish antenna focussing radiation onto the filament. An upper limit on the wavelength is established from antenna design practice. Further limitations are imposed by spectral characteristics of the lens and by half-wave, resonant transmission. Failures are shown to be caused by depletion of conduction electrons. A mechanism is described by which radiation takes them out of the conduction band. Semiquantitative results are based upon simple experiments with headlamps. The radiation intensity causing failure is estimated from measured human sensation of warmth from microwaves.

Fred MERRITTA preliminary classification of some reports of UFOs based on shape and dimensions of imprint patterns 183-195
Abstract: Since UFO reports with similar imprint patterns often have surprisingly similar content, the 68 available reports containing imprint data were examined, taking each report at face value from the best available source. Five catenas (groups of reports) were isolated intuitively. Report details predominating or recurring within each catena were extracted as lists of characteristics. Each of the 68 cases was scored for degree of fit with each of the five lists. The 37 surviving reports form five discrete catenas, each highly consistent internally in report content, with characteristic imprint pattern ranges

John Brent MUSGRAVEThe UFO investigator as counselor and healer 198-200
Abstract: UFO field investigators fulfill the important social function of being counselors and healers. Attention should be paid to this when training investigators, and when interviewing UFO percipients. Some UFO percipients may need to work out their experience in much the same way as upset people work out their life problems. In such cases, the investigator becomes a kind of healer. Without prejudging the reality of the phenomenon, there may be a typology of behavior changes and disorders generated by UFO events.

Jean-Pierre PETIT, Clause POHER, Maurice VITONMagnetohydrodynamic (MHD) aerodynes 201-220
Abstract: This paper presents a theoretical model for the sustention and propulsion of hypothetical vehicles, magnetohydrodynamic aerodynes. Such a vehicle, containing a lightweight, high performance generator, would create by its discharge electrical and magnetic fields in the surrounding air. Lorentz forces acting on this ionized air change the pressure distribution and thereby create both thrust and lift. If the magnetic field is small, cylindrical and spherical shapes are practical, as shown in laboratory simulations in liquids. As the magnetic field increases, the Hall Effect becomes important, and a disc shape is required. Values have been computed for a ten-meter aerodyne at atmospheric pressure, indicating the need for a generator delivering an average of between 400 and 4000 MW (compared with Concorde's 200 MW). Attempts are being made to design such a generator. Theoretical study and computations have provided the configurations necessary to overcome plasma instability. Additional experimentation is underway, using a low pressure wind tunnel, to determine if refraction waves created by plasma acceleration could damp or annihilate the frontal shock wave.

Claude POHERIdeas for an experimental approach 221-230
Abstract: This paper proposes an experimental approach to spectral analysis of UFOs, using the public and a simple, inexpensive diffraction grating in conjunction with any ordinary camera. Sophisticated analysis of the results can yield important information'.

David R. SAUNDERSA spatio-temporal invariant for major UFO waves 231-233
Abstract: Major UFO waves are readily classified by the skewness of their time-distributions. Type C waves are positively skewed, and their dates of onset are easily related to terrestrial stimuli. Type A waves are negatively skewed, and less easily explained. However, a graph of calendar date versus longitude for Type A waves shows a near perfect correlation. Since the optimum date-place combinations move east with the advancing calendar, completing one circumference per year, this suggests the importance of absolute sidereal time as an independent variable influencing reported UFO activity. Other results supporting this hypothesis, and possible refinements therein, are discussed.

William SPAULDINGThe digital computer and the UFO 234-250
Abstract: UFO research has taken a new approach to the interpretation of photographic evidence of UFOs. Most pictorial evidence of UFOs lacks the proper sensitivity and resolution necessary to discern even the simplest of data points. However, the digital computer can help, and is presently being utilized for laboratory research on UFO photographs. Highly sophisticated computer programs, with improved hardware, should soon be available to aid in the evaluation of all UFO photographs.

Leo R. SPRINKLEHypnotic and psychic aspects of UFOs research 251-258
Abstract: This paper describes a possible approach to the study of UFO reports: a tentative set of hypotheses which may explain the "physical," "biological," "psycho-social," and "spiritual" implications of UFO phenomena. Hypnotic techniques are encouraged as a method for assisting UFO witnesses to recall more about their UFO experiences. Psychical research methods are encouraged for the study of paraphysical and para-psychological phenomena which are associated with UFO experiences. Finally, the emerging pattern of UFO reports is compared with the views of persons who claim to have obtained prophetic vision of events which are to occur during the next 25 years.

Ray STANFORDThe operation Argus concept: a new look at UFO. Event sharing and data sharing 259-265
Abstract: Project Starlight International's Operation ARGUS (Automated Ringup on Geo-located UFO Sightings) is a computer-centered, triple triangulation UFO tracking system at PSI's 400 acre research site. It provides: (1) video and typed readouts of actual and horizontal distances to a UFO, plus altitude, radius of visibility, crosssectional size of the object and the error factor involved in each computation; (2) video displays of object path superimposed on landing location studies; (3) multi-line simultaneous automated telephone call-up alert of all ARGUS volunteers within computed area of UFO visibility; (4) automated printout of names and phone numbers of all volunteers successfully reached; (5) automated general radio alert via selected amateur radio channels with request for reportback; and (6) simultaneous radar tracking and recording. Also described is a high speed method of data sharing with researchers world-wide.

David WEBBAnalysis of humanoid/abduction reports 266-276
Abstract: Witness-abduction cases may represent the core of the UFO phenomenon. A listing of such cases is presented, a large number of which have been uncovered only within the last two years. This bold form of behavior seems to be on the increase; over half the known abduction cases have occurred since 1970. Recurring aspects include details of the physical characteristics of the humanoids, the use of on-board physical examinations, induced amnesia and post-encounter increases in the witness ■* knowledge or psi ability. The large number of these cases and their internal consistency demand that we critically analyze them, especially the witnesses involved, try to uncover "hidden" cases, and take a fresh look at the "contactee" problem. Some methods of analysis are suggested.

Ron WESTRUMThe effects of UFOs on society 277-281
Abstract: Human contacts with UFOs have already produced widespread belief in UFOs, and it is suggested that this belief will soon extend to the more "far-out" aspects of the UFO phenomenon. It is possible that this credence, in a force seemingly capricious yet powerful, may undermine the intellectual and emotional foundations of our society.

F. WINTERBERGThe physical possibility o macroscopic bodies approaching zero rest mass and the UFO problem 282-286
Abstract: UFO reports by highly reliable witnesses have in common the observation of solid physical objects (1) with no or almost no inertial mass; (2) surrounded by an intense corona-like discharge; (3) possessing strong magnetic fields; (4) producing no sonic boom at the high velocities reported. These characteristics suggest a state of matter approaching zero rest mass. If such a state exists, then interstellar distances could be traversed in an arbitrarily small proper time and with a vanishingly small amount of energy. Matter incorporating magnetic monopoles may lead to just such a material state. Since monopole fields fall off much more slowly than dipole fields, this could explain the magnetic effects reportedly associated with UFOs. The induced electric field resulting from the rapid motion of the monopole field could explain the glow observed around the UFOs as a corona discharge. The strong magnetic field could also explain the absence of any sonic boom.

Don WORLEYThe UFO-related anthropoids: an important new 287-294
Abstract: In the last seven years there has been a dramatic increase in a specific type of ground-level manifestation associated with UFOs, a bizarre anthropoid-like form which I call simply "the creature." Of major importance to field investigators is the time factor existing in the creature phenomenon. Not in lost-time abductions, ESPoriented contacts, or in any other fashion do we find the source behind UFOs so exposed. For the first time they have begun to approach more closely, sometimes remain in an area for an extended period, or return later.

Richard YINGERExosociology: sociology and UFOs 295-300
Abstract: Sociology provides useful concepts and perspectives for analyzing UFO phenomena. No matter what UFOs "really" are, from a sociological perspective, something is happening that has the characteristics of a social fact. Exosociology is being developed as an investigation of the concept of extraterrestrial life as a social concept and the impact of that concept on Earth life. This paper develops an open systems theoretical framework for analyzing UFO phenomena and traces the development of exosociology as a field of study. The shabby treatment science has given to the study of UFO phenomena is viewed as worthy of study.

Edward ZELLERThe use of thermoluminescence for the evalution of UFO landing site effect 301-308
Abstract: Thermoluminescence - the ability of many common minerals to emit visible light when heated through a temperature range of about 70° to about 400° C - provides a potential means of obtaining genuine hard data on the true nature of UFOs. This paper discusses the techniques used in thermoluminescence analysis of soils and rocks, and the procedures to be observed in the proper collecttion and storage of soil and rock samples from UFO landing sites.

PHYSICAL ASPECTS
E. J. BETINISOn the chance of witnessing celestial or aerial events15-29
Abstract: The chances of witnessing celestial or anomalous aerial events are derived by considering the volume of sky available primarily to the ground-based observer as compared to the entire earth's atmosphere at a height of about 15 kilometers. The fraction of time spent observing compared to a twenty-four hour day and the fraction of volume of sky for observing are also used. Aircraft pilots' and astronomers' chances are also given some consideration. The results are applied to the chances of detecting meteors and anomalous aerial events. The conclusions indicate that the chance of witnessing an anomalous event (UFO) is extremely low and even improbable. Thus reconciliation with data gathered on reports of witnessing anomalous events implies a 'selectivity'. A further conclusion is that the presence of a few fast-moving anomalies could account for the global scale of the reports of anomalous aerial phenomena.
B. S. MACCABEEAnomalous lights in the daylight sky31-67
Abstract: Several observers, one of them a technical competent employee of a military installation, observed two very bright lights or luminous objects in a clear, midday, summer sky. The lights were observed to remain apparently stationary and also to approach and recede along different trajectories. The duration of the observation was from three to five minutes. Despite an intensive investigation the objects remain unidentified.

GATHERING and PROCESSING of DATA
W. SMITH, M. GUASP, V. J. BALLESTER OLMOSDramatic chase in Spain71-85
Abstract: A family of five, returning home at night by back roads, was followed by a bright light which chased the car persistently over a distance of about 40 Km for almost an hour. When approaching the village of Cheste (near Valencia, Spain), the UFO, now at a close range, moved ahead and above the car, and extended legs. The incident was terminated by the approach of another vehicle, moving in the opposite direction on that usually deserted road. One of the witnesses (age 15) was violently ill during the incident, and indisposed for some time afterwards. Damage to the battery of the automobile was attributed to the incident, and it had to be replaced the following day.
E. BERGER1954/55 The Austrian share87-134
Abstract: Masses of UFO experiences were reported at Austria in the 1954/55 period 99 of which remained unidentified. The hard core of the material consists of gendarmerie/police reports collected by the Austrian government and for the first time released to Ernst Berger in 1973. 28 case histories, the most interesting part of the material, are presented in detail. By means of a full statistical analysis methodically equal to an earlier study by BERGER on 1972-77 Austrian report patterns structures of the 1954/55 flap are extracted and compared with the results of VALLEE, BERGER and others.

The "CE III"
J. SCORNAUXConsiderations on the nature of humanoids137-176
Abstract: The nature of humanoids reported by UFO witnesses remains very controversial. Their existence as intelligent extraterrestrial beings meets very much reticence in the human mind. There is undoubtedly a mental block caused by fear, but there are also more elaborated arguments. The resemblance between Man and humanoids is one of these, but the question of the resemblance that other intelligent beings may bear to us remains very open among biologists. I do not think that human imagination can explain the appearance of humanoids. In general, they resemble us both too much and too little. An argument against the material nature of the humanoids is that their morphology is far too variable from one case to another. Several answers are possible to this objection. But a more fundamental argument is based on the instant or on the spot disappearance of humanoids. I now give a few examples of this behaviour, both in the open air and in confined spaces. I propose the explanation that these cases are projections of images, created either by electromagnetic waves or by some parapsychological means. But all the ufonauts are not images, or perhaps only a part of the observation corresponds to a projection because some of them left footprints or had physical contact with the witnesses. I also give a few examples of such cases. I present several hypotheses about the nature of material humanoids and discuss the concept of a 'reassuring' hypothesis. I propose foe discussion the hypothesis that part of the humanoids might be human beings captured by the beings governing the UFO phenomenon.

PSYCHOLOGICAL and PERCEPTIVE ASPECTS
L. R. SPRINKLEUsing pendulum technique in the investigation of UFO experiences179-218
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to provide information about technique for uncovering subconscious memories, so that UFO field investigators may consider the technique for possible use in investigations. The pendulum technique is described, with references to historical development and contemporary usage. Procedures are presented for learning the use of the pendulum technique, including illustrations to guide the interested reader. A brief review is presented of the literature on field investigation of UFO experiences; an emphasis is given to the reports of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (CE III), including reports of 'loss of time', or partial amnesia, which may occur during UFO sightings. Results of using the pendulum technique are described in two UFO cases: one case obtained preliminary information about a possible 'loss of time' experience during a UFO sighting; the second case obtained preliminary information about a possible 'hidden' UFO experience. The UFO cases are presented as examples for preliminary investigation of the CE III experiences. When field investigators obtain information about CE III cases, they are encouraged to consider possible arrangements for a consultant in hypnosis to assist UFO witnesses in exploring and evaluating their subconscious memories of their UFO experiences.
A. H. LAWSONHypnosis of imaginary UFO "abductees"219-258
(Italian translation Documenti UFO Monografie vol. 3 /1984 Ipnosi di rapiti UFO immaginari, pp. 22-72)
Abstract: In an attempt to evaluate objectively the claims of UFO 'abductees', imaginary abductions were induced hypnotically in a group of volunteers who had non significant knowledge of UFOs. Eight situational questions comprising the major components of a typical abduction account were asked of each subject. Although the researchers expected major dissimilarities, an averaged comparison of data from four imaginary and four 'real' abduction narratives showed no substantive differences. Also, extensive patterns echoing well-established details from 'real' UFO reports emerged from the 'naive' subjects' imaginary sessions. There is as yet no satisfactory explanation for the patterns and other similarities between imaginary and 'real' abductions. But, more significantly, there are parallels between these patterns and the 'image constants' or recurrent descriptions of forms, color, and movement reported by subjects in drug-induced hallucination experiments, and in so-called 'death' narratives, among other mental processes. Thus there is reason to accept at least some parts of 'real' abductees' stories as accurate reflections of what their sensory mechanisms have reported. However, despite the many similarities, there are crucial differences - such as alleged physical effects and multiple witnesses - which argue that UFO abductions are separate and distinct from imaginary and hallucinatory experiences. With these distinctions in mind, an abduction model is proposed: Witnesses really perceive images - from whatever source - such as bright and pulsating lights, lattice-textured forms moving randomly in the sky, lighted tunnels, humanoid figures, etc. These abduction constants are combined with data from the imagination, memory, and existing UFO data known by witnesses to create a 'real' UFO encounter. The subjective reality of the intense hallucinatory structure convinces the witnesses that the entire experience is a physically real event. Subsequently they may report the 'truth' as they have experienced it, although actual occurrences remain unclear. The complexities of the UFO phenomenon are affirmed by the above model since still unexplained are many puzzling matters, including the greatest mystery of all, the nature of the stimulus which initiates the imagery in the witness and so triggers the abduction sequence. The writer prefers a dualistic UFO hypothesis. But while there is a continuing absence of unambiguous physical evidence, this study concludes that UFOs are - in psychological terms - unquestionably real, and further, that non-physical UFO research is promising.
R. F. HAINESUFO drawings by witnesses and non witnesses: is there somethings in common (part II)259-271
Abstract: Previously, the author found that no readily discernable differences could be found between drawings of 'what a UFO looks like' by people who claims to have seen one from others who claim never to have seen one (Haines, 1977). Since this finding may have resulted simply from the relatively small sample size (136 valid drawings) further tests were administered. The mean results of 458 more valid drawings are presented here. The results may be summarized by pointing out that the 'Have' seen group drew (1) a higher percentage of valid i.e., not ludicrous drawings, (2) a higher percentage of UFO shapes at some angle relative to the edge of the (drawing) card, (3) a higher percentage of two or more shapes on the card, (4) a lower percentage of shapes in side or isometric view, and (5) a lower percentage of symmetrical drawings. Neither the mean width-to-height ratio of the UFO outline shape or its dome (if drawn) differed between the two participant groups. Also, the other major UFO outline and dome measurements were not drawn differently by either group. Finally, and perhaps more significantly, the 'Have' seen group drew a smaller number of miscellaneous details such as apertures (Windows?), markings, wavy lines around the shape, etc. These findings are compared to those obtained in the previous study and discussed in terms of the perceptual impact the UFO encounter appears to have on one's willingness and/or ability to reproduce a UFO shape.
C. RIFATA theoretical framework for the problem of non-contact between and advanced extra-terrestrial civilization and mankind: symbolic sequential communication versus non-symbolic non-sequential communication273-288
Abstract: A general set of ideas is proposed to suggest that advanced extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) might, probably, never be interested in communicating with such a primitive species as ours. According to the author, symbolic sequential language is the most primitive kind of language intelligent beings may use. Advanced intelligences may better communicate via a non-symbolic non-sequential language, which is able to convey much more bits of information per unit of time at a low cost of distortion, thus nearly eliminating the problem of cloudy symbolic concepts which is so huge a factor of noise in human communication. What is most interesting is that we may well be in presence of a terrestrial species having evolved a more advanced mode of communication: the dolphin!

EPISTEMOLOGY of the RESEARCH
I. GRATTAN-GUINNESSAre UFO psychic phenomena?291-304
Abstract: Students of UFO phenomena nowadays mostly regard their work as a branch of psychical research. In this paper I explore the possibilities of connections and similarities between UFO and psychic phenomena.

IN UFO AREA
M. PITTELLAA statistical survey among Italian astronomical observatory307-314
Abstract: This statistical survey was performed between the years 1977 and 1978, among the most important 14 astronomical and astrophysical observatories in Italy. It had the purpose to probe the opinion of a major slice of the Italian scientific community about the UFO subject and to know whether the staff of some observatories had directly sighted some UFO phenomena. This informative test did not supply us with new and unexpected information. However it is a clear document emphasizing the mediocre standard of information and sensibility of the scientific environment upon the UFO question. Such an investigation, if addressed to other scientific circles too and regularly repeated, could be a suitable way to assess time to time possible developments of the scientific opinion about the UFO subject.
