Hello List,

For about two centuries amateur and professional astronomers,
plus navigators of all kinds, were reporting well observed and
reasonably documented sightings of unidentified objects flying
in the sky, at all altitudes, even reaching to outer space.

Most seen by astronomers were during observations of Sun or Moon
- which is expected, since there's a light, contrasting
background to show up any intervening objects. Navigators
reports are mostly from mariners, who can need to take various
sightings either through the night, dawn, mid-day or dusk. Early
last century pilots and air-navigators joined in reporting such

Strikingly, all this changed some years ago (some say after
1947?). The new regime is to suppress - using powers of the
State - any such reports from qualified observers (any brave
astronomer or navigator speaking up risks losing their
livelihood). And, more strikingly, the corporate media have,
during same period, pursued a campaign of vilification and
ridicule of professional sightings - acting hand in hand with
governments to completely wipe-out what was, for generations, an
accepted and acceptable routine of straight factual reporting of

It's clear that, by cock-up or conspiracy, this is now main
"government policy" - especially in USA, UK and other more (or
less) repressive regimes.

The way forward seems to be a confidential internal collection
of reports (internal = no publicity of names etc), which is
suggested because that is what civil and maybe military pilots
have been forced to do. [They have issues of safety driving

Anyone got friends in astronomy?
