If you should happen to have an encounter with a UFO, the following guidelines will provide help.....

1. Remain calm and don't panic.

2. Do NOT attempt to approach the craft if it is on the ground

or hovering at a low altitude. There have been many cases

in which witnesses have heat and/or radiation burns from

approaching too close to a craft.

3. Do NOT attempt to make contact with any of the craft's

occupants. Your intentions may be mistaken as an act of


4. REPORT YOUR SIGHTING. By all means report what you have

seen, but don't bother reporting it to the Air Force, the

FBI, or local Police. These organizations maintain there

are no UFO's and as such will simply file your report away.

Instead report your sighting to a UFO organization such as

CUFON, UFORN, MUFON, CAUS, or any of a dozen other UFO

groups. Chances are these organizations will send a "field

investigator" to personally sit down with you and discuss

your sighting.

5. If possible, take a picture of the craft with a camera.

DON'T use a flash.

A flash on an ordinary camera is only good for about 20

feet and all you will accomplish is letting the UFO know

exactly where you are (if it didn't know already.)

6. Note if possible the exact time of the sighting. This will

aid in determining the duration of the sighting. Also look

around for familiar objects that you can use to estimate

the size of the craft.

7. Notice if possible any unusual colors or shape of the

craft, did the craft produce any sound and if so what was


8. Notice if possible any related effects caused by the craft,

i.e. electrical malfunctions of electronic devices (car

ignition, radios, etc). Look for ground effects such as

dust being blown about beneath the craft.

9. After the craft has left look for any "Traces."

A trace would be any physical sign the craft was there,

i.e. flattened grass, unusual soil patterns etc.


that to the UFOlogist.

10. As quickly as possible write down exactly what you saw or

dictate it into a tape recorder.

As time passes the memory of exact detail may fade.
