Recently some of you have been asking me what files I have regarding astronomers, astronomical societies, observatories, etc. Indeed there is much material. I will have to sift through it. For now, I have typed out a not-insignificant number of statements made by astronomers (which have been stated by them in radio interviews, tv interviews, or written in letters and memos, etc (ie the sources of the info are solid)).

This is only a small fragment of what is out there, re astronomers. Be assured of that. Many of you will already know the below; but for some these quotes will be a much needed and pleasant surprise.

Paul Dean.

“The definitive resolution of the UFO enigma will not come about unless and until the problem is subjected to open and extensive scientific study by the normal procedures of established science. In their public statements, but not necessarily in their private statements, scientists express a generally negative attitude towards the UFO problem, and it is interesting to try to understand this attitude. Most scientists have never had the occasion to confront evidence concerning the UFO phenomenon.”

“Over the past eighteen years I have acted as a scientific consultant to the U.S. Air Force on the subject of unidentified flying objects. As a consequence of my work on the voluminous air force files and, to a greater extent, of personal investigation of many puzzling cases and interviews with witnesses of good repute, I have long been aware that the subject of UFO’s could not be dismissed as mere nonsense.”

“Cases that were very difficult to explain, they would jump handsprings to keep the media away from them. They had a job to do, rightfully or wrongfully, to keep the public from getting excited.”

Joseph Allen Hynek

Scientist; Astronomer; Chairman of the Astronomy Department, Northwestern University, United States; Science Director, Project Blue Book, United States Air Force; Chief of the Section, Upper Atmosphere Studies and Satellite Tracking and Associate Director, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, United States

“My personal opinion is that UFOs should be taken seriously and studied without prejudice. There may be several possible explanations, such as rare atmospheric phenomena, but some cases strongly suggest actual flying machines with characteristics well beyond our terrestrial capacities. If these cases could be completely proven as such, then the extraterrestrial hypothesis would probably be the most likely explanation for these advanced craft. Admittedly, it is a fantastic possibility, but not an irrational one, given the data that we have.”

Astronomer; Member of High Studies Institute for National Defence, France

“They were observed to be moving in a rather erratic pattern and changing colors occasionally. The last thirty minutes of observation revealed the lights remaining yellow prior to that they were red, green, and blue. They moved in no apparent formation but mostly appeared in one area and disappeared in another, when either the light went out or the objects dived behind clouds. They were starlike objects and appeared to develop long, white vapor trails, when they dived. They were motionless at times and moved rapidly at other times. This corresponded to similar movements observed on the radar scope. One white light went out as it changed direction and continued as a black silhouette against the dawn sky. Observation was for a period of about an hour and was made by two airmen and a radar operator. All three observers were experienced aircraft control and warning operators.”

“The phenomenon seems to be real... The general coherence of sighting reports worldwide should not leave researchers indifferent.”

Claude Poher

Astronomer; Head, Unidentified Flying Object Investigative Office, National Center for Space Sciences, France

“These things, which do appear to be directed, are unlike any other phenomena I ever observed. Their apparent lack of obedience to the ordinary laws of celestial motion gives credence.”

Clyde Tombaugh

Astronomer; Discoverer of Pluto

“The cases we take seriously are those that the description of the phenomenon is apparently one of a flying machine whose origin, modes of lifting and/or propulsion are totally outside our knowledge.”

Claude Poher

Astronomer; Head, Unidentified Flying Object Investigative Office, National Center for Space Sciences, France

“To the present time this strange phenomenon has not been satisfactorily explained, yet there were thousands of good observers who had seen it.”

Zhang Zhousheng

Astronomer, Yunnan Observatory, China

“I have strongly urged the Air Force to ask physical and social scientists of stature to make a respectable, scholarly study of the UFO phenomenon.”

Joseph Allen Hynek

Scientist; Astronomer; Chairman of the Astronomy Department, Northwestern University, United States; Science Director, Project Blue Book, United States Air Force; Chief of the Section, Upper Atmosphere Studies and Satellite Tracking and Associate Director, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, United States

“For the government to continue to maintain that UFOs are non-existent in the face of the documents already released and of other cogent evidence presented in this book is puerile and in a sense an insult to the American people.”

Joseph Allen Hynek

Scientist; Astronomer; Chairman of the Astronomy Department, Northwestern University, United States; Science Director, Project Blue Book, United States Air Force; Chief of the Section, Upper Atmosphere Studies and Satellite Tracking and Associate Director, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, United States

“The three unexplained sightings, which have been gleaned from a great mass of reports, are a challenge to the analyst. Especially puzzling is the first one of the list, the daytime sighting of an object showing details such as arms protruding from a body having a noticeable angular extension. If the NORAD listing of objects near the GT4 spacecraft at the time of the sighting is complete as it presumably is, we shall have to find a rational explanation, or alternatively, keep it on our list of unidentified.”

Franklin E. Roach

Astronomer, University of Arizona

“I’d say, yeah, let’s find out, let’s take a look at it, because here we have a phenomenon that causes a tremendous amount of interest. Why not try to understand what it is?”

Derrick H. Pitts

Astronomer; Chief Astronomer and Planetarium Director, Franklin Institute, United States

“Further to the certainty that, to date, we do not know what some of these phenomena are and what causes them. Also that it is even possible that they might eventually have serious effects upon our planet and its inhabitants, either for good or ill. In any case the fullest scientific study should be given them. Again reputable people, especially pilots, should be encouraged, not discouraged, to report all unusual phenomena in our atmosphere.”

Charles P. Oliver

President, American Meteor Society; Emeritus Professor of Astronomy, University of Pennsylvania, United States

“Many professional astronomers are convinced that saucers are interplanetary machines. I do too.”

Frank Halstead

Astronomer; Director of the Darling Observatory, United States

“It was something I had never seen before.”

Jacques Chapuis

Astronomer, Toulouse Observatory, France

“This is one of the few UFO reports in which all factors investigated, geometric, psychological, and physical appear to be consistent with the assertion that an extraordinary flying object, silvery, metallic, disk-shaped, tens of meters in diameter, and evidently artificial, flew within sight of two witnesses.”

William K. Hartmann

Astronomer, University of Arizona, United States
