This is often claimed to be the earliest picture of a UFO, this picture was taken from the summit of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, in 1870.


Unidentified flying object (commonly abbreviated as UFO or U.F.O.) is the popular term for any aerial phenomenon whose cause cannot be easily or immediately identified by the observer. The United States Air Force, which coined the term in 1952, initially defined UFOs as those objects that remain unidentified after scrutiny by expert investigators, though the term UFO is often used more generally to describe any sighting unidentifiable to the reporting observer(s). Popular culture frequently takes the term UFO as a synonym for alien spacecraft. Cults have become associated with UFOs, and mythology and folklore have evolved around the phenomenon. Some investigators now prefer to use the broader term unidentified aerial phenomenon (or UAP), to avoid the confusion and speculative associations that have become attached to UFO.

Below is a collection of real UFO pictures through the last 138 years 1870-2008.
(Real pictures, real UFO's who knows)

Studies show that after careful investigation, the majority of UFOs can be identified as ordinary objects or phenomena. The most commonly found identified sources of UFO reports are:

    * Astronomical objects (bright stars, planets, meteors, re-entering man-made spacecraft, artificial satellites, and the moon)
    * Aircraft (Aerial advertising and other aircraft, missile launches)
    * Balloons (weather balloons, prank balloons, large research balloons)

Much less common sources of UFO reports include:

    * Other atmospheric objects and phenomena (birds, unusual clouds, kites, flares)
    * Light phenomena (mirages, Fata Morgana, moon dogs, searchlights and other ground lights, etc.)
    * Hoaxes

UFO skeptics

An influential group which has for many years offered critical analysis of UFO claims is the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.

Allegations of evidence suppression

 There have been allegations of suppression of UFO related evidence for many decades. There are also conspiracy theories that claim that physical evidence might have been removed and/or destroyed/suppressed by some governments. (See also Men in Black, Brookings Report.)
