Description
Engaging and entertaining, UFO Sightings: The Evidence is the most up-to-date overview of the UFO phenomenon, a controversy that gains strength with each new report of strange happenings in the sky. Written from the skeptical perspective, and applying the scientific method to the cases explored, this book differs greatly from the proparanormal tomes widely available today. "Most broad survey UFO books contain absolutely uncritical presentations of sensational claims," says author Robert Sheaffer. "Typically, pro-UFO books deliberately omit all facts that tend to discredit the cases." UFO Sightings is unique because it gives the reader a broad overview of the world of UFOlogy, dealing with most major cases and trends, while offering references and commentary to provide a clear perspective. Incidents and photographs are scrutinized within a framework of objective science. Included are the Jimmy Carter UFO sighting; the "abduction" of Betty and Barney Hill; the incidents at Exeter; the Men in Black; messages from space; mothmen, wolf girls, and transparent apes; films; the UFO blitz of Mexico; and the comparisons to sightings of fairies and witches in colonial times.
