Welcome to the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies

The Center for UFO Studies (CUFOS) is an international group of scientists, academics, investigators, and volunteers dedicated to the continuing examination and analysis of the UFO phenomenon. Our purpose is to promote serious scientific interest in UFOs and their study, and to serve as an archive for reports, documents, and publications about the UFO phenomenon.

We have provided an extensive set of resources on this site to help you learn about the UFO phenomenon, for beginners and for those seeking more in-depth information.

Become Involved
CUFOS does not have members, but you can become involved in our work. We encourage you to become involved in CUFOS activities, which can include archival work, assistance with our UFOCAT database, historical case research, current research in both the physical and social sciences on various types of UFO reports, or statistical analysis of sighting data. To volunteer your assistance, contact us at Infocenter@cufos.org.
