From: Isaac Koi <isaackoi.nul> Date: Mon, 18 Mar 2013 20:09:25 +0000 Archived: Tue, 19 Mar 2013 08:37:25 -0400 Subject: Searchable Translation "UFOs In The USSR" "Observations Of UFOs In The USSR" Volume 3 - Searchable English Translation Greetings all, I have uploaded a searchable copy of a 160 page long English translation of Felix Zigel's book "Observations of UFO's In The USSR : Volume 3"(1978) to the link below: http://isaackoi.minus.com/lDnEYtq4mo3Bq Russian ufologist Mikhail Gershtein has previously mentioned having been repeatedly told by Tatyana Felix'ovna Zigel (Zigel's widow and keeper of Zigel's archive) that she only want to see her husband's works published and doesn't want any money. A copy of this translation was included in the middle of one of a number of PDF files released online jointly by MUFON and Blackvault.com a few years ago (apparently as part of MUFON's Pandora Project, although I can't be sure as I still haven't obtained reliable detailed information on that project...). That file was labelled on the relevant Blackvault webpage (apparently no longer available other than via the Wayback Machine's Internet Archive) as being "Case File #2: DIA Documents released during this case" under "Ground Saucer Watch (GSW) v. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) File". I don't recall anyone mentioning this translation appearing in that PDF file. From material I posted a few months ago from Skylook and MUFON's Journal about prior translations of some of Zigel's books, it seems that MUFON has been involved in generating two (apparently separate) translations of Volume 1 of Zigel's "Observations of UFOs in the USSR", one in the early 1970s and another one in the early 1990s. When it published information about the second translation of Volume 1, MUFON's Journal didn't refer to the earlier translation that MUFON had been involved in producing of that volume. Indeed, an article in MUFON's Journals about that second translation stated that Zigel's writings had previously been unavailable to Westerners and not previously translated. That's the sort of thing I have in mind when I keep going on (and on and on...) about reinvention of the wheel within ufology. I've posted on one of MUFON's Facebook pages that I hope that posting Volume 3 will result in Volume 1 (in any of its translations) being made available online so that it doesn't have to be translated yet again!
