New UFO reference book published. Sounds like it would be a good resource.



UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2015
Paperback – March 24, 2017
by Cheryl Costa (Author), Linda Miller Costa (Author)
$32.06

The first book of its kind, the UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2015 presents data and analysis for 100,000+ sightings of unidentified flying objects reported by individuals during the first 15 years of the 21st century.

Since 1969 the government has claimed no interest in the subject, and the press and media either ignore or ridicule any mention of UFOs. Yet citizen scientists and non-governmental organizations have continued to this day the research into this important subject: this book seeks to make the hardest data available accessible to the general public, as well as other UFO researchers.

The book is organized into beginning narrative sections including analysis of UFO sightings, frequently asked questions, and how to use this book, followed by the data. Charts, tables, and maps are presented of summary data for the entire US and individual chapters for all 50 states (down to the county level) plus the District of Columbia.

Aimed at the serious UFO researcher, this comprehensive volume is also of value to academic and public libraries, news organizations, and anyone who is interested in what is flying in the skies over their heads where they live.

"Cheryl Costa and Linda Miller have provided a great resource to anyone interested in the field"

By Earl Grey on April 23, 2017
As a member of The Board Of Directors of MUFON Los Angeles, I'm always searching for scientific works on the phenomenon. Cheryl Costa and Linda Miller have provided a great resource to anyone interested in the field. The Desk Reference notates every reported UFO sighting in The United States over the last 16 years.


"A wonderful encyclopedia of reports of UFO sightings"


April 25, 2017 by Robert C. Ross
This is a fascinating book for people who love data and are intrigued by the phenomena of UFO sightings. Whether you are a believer, a doubter, or just interested in statistical studies, there is something here for you.

There are no written accounts in these 371 pages of charts and graphs. Instead, the data is presented by geography and timing of the reported incidents, and by the various shapes that witnesses reported: flying circles, spheres, triangles, discs, ovals, cigars.

The authors' conclusion: many of the reports explainable, but a small group defies current explanation. Their primary interest here is disclosure: “We wanted to do our bit for disclosure. It’s something the government should have been doing.”

UFO sightings abound in California: 16K reports from 2001-2015 tops all states

By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times
April 26, 2017

The truth is out there — in California — if UFO aficionados are to be believed.

A new book by co-authors Cheryl Costa and Linda Miller Costa includes a list of all documented UFO sightings across the United States. The pair tallied nearly 16,000 sightings in The Golden State from 2001 through 2015 — the most in the nation — for “UFO Sightings Desk Reference.”

“We found that UFOs were sighted in every county in the United States,” Ms. Costa told a CBS affiliate in San Francisco on Tuesday. “Every county had at least one sighting sometime in the past 15 years.”

The authors gleaned their data from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), and the National UFO Reporting Center.

“Most people were very sincere about what they reported, about what they think they saw,” she told the station. “They weren’t jerking us around. But we understand the only proof some people are going to accept is a spaceship cracked up in the mall parking lot.”

The two women surmise that California’s weather allows people to be outdoors more often, which results in more eyes on the sky.

Santa Clara County in Northern California had the most sightings with 569, the station reported. San Franciscans reported 327 UFOs during the same period.

The Deafening Silence of Proof

By Cheryl Costa
Posted on June 16, 2017

Since the release of my and my spouse’s book, UFO Sightings Desk Reference, there has been significant media interest, which has been a good thing. The surprising thing is the change in attitude related to the types of interview questions I’ve received. Prior to releasing the book, the questions asked by media hosts tended to be “little green man” queries. It’s a mosaic of questions: Who’s driving the UFOs? Why are they here? Most of these questions are intended to discredit the expert and present the subject in a silly light.

But recently it has been quite different. The refreshingly serious questions are focused on the cold hard facts of the statistical numbers we presented. For some of the reporters there was a sense of fascination. For others, there seemed to be a struggle to hang onto preconceived ideas about the UFO topic. Indeed, many of the reporters had their view of reality challenged and in a couple of cases shattered. Several muttered, “This stuff is real!”

Of course there are some news editors and news directors who refused to confront the media topicality that the UFO statistics caused. While pitching phone calls, I was confronted with lines like “Oh, Cheryl the issues of UFOs was settled years go,” or “Cheryl it’s too silly to talk about, ha-ha.” And of course my favorite: “Come back to me when you have some proof.”

Regarding the comment that UFOs were settled long ago, I can only offer that the government told us for years that UFOs were declining. But our book proved that UFO reports have been increasing in waves for over 15 years. Regarding the remark that the subject is too silly: If it is so silly, why has it been classified higher than the H-bomb since the 1950s?

Finally, regarding the statement, “Come back to me when you have some proof.” Ok, there is plenty of proof out there, if you’re willing to look at it and not dismiss it out of hand.

Case in point: Since the 1970’s a humble one-armed gentleman in Switzerland named Eduard Albert Meier has been having regular contact with off-worlders. He’s produced hundreds of still photographs and videos of off-world space crafts called beam ships. These items have been labeled fraudulent by the world’s skeptics and debunkers. Yet three decades of photo analysis have confirmed they weren’t faked.

Meier has presented metal-alloy samples that renowned metallurgists have stated that they couldn’t reproduce with current technology.

Likewise, Meier also predicted certain things that off-worlders told him were getting ready to happen. In the past 40-50 years, all these things have come to pass.

When I first heard of Meier in the 1990s, I was fascinated with his story and the evidence he presented. I was even more fascinated with the lack of media coverage of his story and encounters outside of Europe, especially in the United States. In fact, in most current UFO programs we see on those mainstream cable channels, nobody brings up Billy Meier, which is his nickname.

On April 18, 2016, I published an article: My Smoking Gun UFO Proof, which was met with harsh criticism. Social media UFO trolls came out of the proverbial woodwork to denounce Billy Meier as a fraud and labeled me a fool for accepting any of his material as legitimate.

These days there is a large amount of CGI fakery out in social media, including well-doctored photos of alleged alien craft sightings. Some of the CGI is as convincing as anything Hollywood can produce.

What’s strange is that the debunkers are nowhere near as loud with the CGI frauds as they’ve been with the Billy Meier material over the years. There’s an old saying: “Perhaps they protest too much.”

On one hand, perhaps all the debunking is just loud cries of those who can’t deal with the view of reality being challenged. On the other hand, perhaps all the protesting and defaming of Billy Meier is just one massive misinformation campaign intended to discredit evidence of real extraterrestrial contact.

After reviewing evidence from Meier and observing the deafening media silence related to his case, it’s clear to me that Billy Meier is the 800 pound gorilla in the room of Ufology.
