Frequently Asked Questions:-
Why do you run this website?
We do not do it for profit. We do it simply because we want to provide a simple way for the general public to log their UFO sightings into one easy searchable site.
Why isn’t my UFO sighting published yet?
We generally receive over a hundred sighting reports a week. Not all reports are accepted, those that are rejected are generally due to either insufficient information or exceptionally poor grammar. We try to add approved sighting reports within 72 hours.
Will you tell me if my sighting report is accepted or rejected?
We do try but unfortunately due to our limited resources we are unable to guarantee that a confirmation email will be sent on every occasion. The best thing to do is use the search facility on the site to see if your report is listed. Please note that if your sighting is of orange light(s) then there is good chance that it may not have been added as a unique sighting report but logged as comment with in one of volumes of that months “Orange Lighting Sighting Reports”
Failing all that send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask the question.
Will you contact me with your findings/thoughts on my UFO sighting?
The main purpose of this site is to provide the public with an opportunity to share and discuss their potential UFO sightings. Currently we do not have the resources to contact individuals about their case. There is however a good chance that opinion comments maybe left against your report from UFO experts/non experts alike who are interested in your sighting.
Why isn’t my Comment published yet?
We generally receive over 50 comments a day to approve . At present to prevent spammers these are all vetted before publishing. Typically we try to add approved comments within 24 hours of receipt.
Why has my website address been removed from my comment?
Our policy where practical is not allow links to other sites unless the provided a reciprocal link to this site first. Before submitting your comment please send an email to email@example.com with the link on your website back to us.
Do you accept photos?
Yes, provided they are to support a sighting report you have sent to this site. We currently do not have the facility for witnesses to upload their photos directly so these must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
