Hello List!

Since October, 2006, I've been working on a new project.

"Clear Skies" is meant to be a systematic collection, catalogue,
evaluation and analysis of all available documentation about
unidenified aerial phenomena watched by (both professional and
amateur) astronomers all over the world since Januar 1st, 1600.

TLP (transient lunar phenomena) or any other anomalies seen on
the surface of Sun, Moon and other planets will not be included.

In these first few months since the project was submitted to
CISU council, a preliminary list of 146 reports have been
catalogued, beginning with the earlier years (up to 1899) for
pratical reasons: a lesser (though not so little) number of
events, and a stable (sedimented) sources sample, enabling us to
test methods and procedures of inclusion, cataloguing, analysis
and understanding of the context.

A special emphasis is being put on witnesses' biographical data
collection (expecially for reports from before 1950) and on the
search and retrieval of primary sources, expecially from
 scientific publications.

A preliminary list will soon be made available. Any contribution
(as of cases, reports or bibliography) or suggestion from fellow
researchers is welcome.

Giuseppe Stilo,
Centro Italiano Studi Ufologici
