UFO Research Coalition
1 - 2 minute read
A collaborative effort in the mid-2000's by the three failing US UFO investigative organizations of the time (with the stated goal "to share personnel and other research resources, and to fund and promote the scientific study of the UFO phenomenon." The group was made up of MUFON, CUFOS (the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies), and FUFOR (the Fund for UFO Research). The latter two, already being in the failed stage, meant that it was really just a PR stunt by MUFON and the skeletons of the other two organizations.
Aside from the PR (corresponding to some UFO-themed shows premiering on US cable television), the only meaningful idea to come out of the coalition was an observatory to be built at the Audubon Estate of The Legendary Danny O'Doul in Wemphis on Long Island, New York, from which a high-powered, computer-driven telescope will peruse the skies tracking in real-time all UFO activities in the very-active skies of and around The Five Towns of Long Island, adjacent to JFK Int'l Airport. The status of this project is unknown. It is also unknown why the group's official website claimed the coalition was founded in 1994.¹ NARCAP, NIDS, and NUFORC joined the coalition sometime later.
