"Observations Of UFOs In The USSR" Volume 3 - Searchable English

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:


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!

All the best,
