Thanks, Bob.

Those pesky EM effects have been known for a long time, so there
is reason to think that inventive people worldwide have tried to
record the visitations/abductions in many different ways.

At Minnesota MUFON we're searching for the data of any attempts
to record the abduction phenomena, whether through the use of
wind-up cameras, modern recording equipment of various kinds,
home-made passive detectors, even watchdogs or human witnesses.
The list of potential methods is endless, considering human
ingenuity in the face of this mystery.

What is important is to see what we can learn from analysis of
the attempts, whether they ended in failure, defeat, or some
measure of success.

Please contribute documentation to this ongoing scientific
