  • Get more witnesses if possible.
  • Do not try to seek contact with the alien occupants unless you are willing to risk an abduction.
  • Some famous UFO reports include the Phoenix, Arizona Lights, the Walton abduction case near Snowflake, Arizona; Betty Andreasson -Luca and the Allagash Abductions.
  • Contact a UFO and/or a paranormal investigator, but be aware that you will be thoroughly investigated to rule out a hoax. The investigation will also try to prove that is something mundane and not paranormal.
  • Observe the craft from a concealed position, one that may reduce your exposure to potential radiation.


  • Reporting a UFO experience may cause personal ridicule by others. Be cautious and make an informed decision before making a UFO report.
  • IF you smoke, use drugs, drink, quit doing that, since this will affect your credibility.
