A WORD FROM OUR DIRECTOR

The Roundtown UFO Society is a non-profit organization that is seriously interested in collecting data on Unidentified Flying Objects.We are an outlet for people who want to know the latest information about UFOs and also for people who may have seen an unknown object and who wish to report it.  The witness can remain anonymous if he/she so desires.  We believe that there have been a lot of unreported UFO sightings over the past several years.  It is important to get the reports and to be able to analyze them.  We urge anybody who believes that they may have witnessed an unusual phenomenon to contact us at the above address or phone number or our email address, [email protected].

Some of our RUFOS members are affiliated with two nationwide UFO investigative groups; MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, located in Morrison, Colorado; and CUFOS, the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies, located in Chicago, Illinois.  Also some members belong to a state organization, which is MUFON of Ohio.  These non-profit organizations have hundreds of members who hold professional degrees and who feel that UFOs deserve serious scientific study.

Co-operation is the key to helping solve this greatest mystery of our, or possibly all time.

After many years of investigating and researching UFOs I decided that more of the public should be
told about our results.  This is for the public that is interested in this subject.  I call this endeavor the
Public Awareness Program. I have accomplished this by giving talks at different organizations, writing
local newspaper articles, and now with our website.  We had a quarterly newsletter that lasted for
thirteen years. With our website, www.roundtownufosociety.com, our information can be available
much sooner and will help the society accomplish much more. We plan on putting the latest UFO
information on it, which also will include past UFO sightings.  History is very important to ufology.  
"We will try to stick to the facts, as we know them."

The Zachary Space Story

This is a story of a policeman, who, while working up in Madison Township by Lake Erie in Ohio, was called out on a sighting on an evening in November of 1975.  Spheres the size of vans, and 20 crafts as large as Walmart apparently hovering and powering up over high power electric lines.  It has the classic automotive shut-down, cover-up, men in black suits, secrecy and many witnesses besides Zachary.  We’ll be looking back into history to see what we can find about that night.  It should be interesting. more info…..

Linda Sigman of southern Ohio was with us March 9th at our meeting at the Pickaway County District Public Library. She shared her story of seeing UFOs that came very close to the car she and her boyfriend were in and soon after seeing what appeared very similar to Mothman flying near them. Her story dates back to the spring of 1967 and was in the time-frame when other people in the Point Pleasant area were seeing and reporting other similar winged-type creatures. It was a very interesting story and meeting.

Welcome!!!

The Mufon of Ohio Conference lineup of speakers at the Quality Inn Conference Center in Bellville, Ohio was quite a mix of ideas and endeavors. It was interesting to go "by the numbers" to "personal experiences", to proving crop circle history. I enjoyed this meeting of the minds and the different tangents it took us through. Hooray MUFON Ohio for this presentation...

MEMBER CHRIS FRANTZ SHARES OVERVIEW OF THE
MUFON 2018 SYMPOSIUM AT THE AUGUST MEETING

April 14, 2017

Attention: When there is world tension due to a possible nuclear confrontation between countries, "Look Toward The Skies!" Example - In October, 1973 we almost had a nuclear war when Israel was threatened in the "Yom Kippur War". At that time we had one of the most massive UFO sightings in the United States. Was this a coincidence or a definite connection?

“Until recently many of the witnesses have requested to remain anonymous.  Times have changed, because many are allowing their names to be used. They are realizing that many of the public believe or know the subject of UFOs is a reality.  Even now UFO witnesses from the past are willing to reveal their UFO sightings.  If the trend continues you will have many more people talking about their experiences.” - Pete Hartinger - See more
