-------------------------

Iffy UFO Sites:

http://ufos.about.com/

About.com is not the best source for UFO info. However it may have info on new cases you can cross-check.

MUFON/CMS:

The integrity of the information in their database may not be trust worthy. The regional MUFON sites may be your best bet. See: http://www.hyper.net/ufo/organizations.html

UFO Case Book:

Cross-check info from this site. The computer generated illustrations on the site may not accurately reflect witness sightings.

Tip: It's always good to cross-check, look for original witness testimony.
