Step 1. Prepare a good camera

Organizations such as the National UFO Reporting Center have databases stored online, which inform several sightings of place, date, and form. Search for UFO sightings in your area. There's no guarantee you'll see UFOs there, but places where there have been UFO sightings are a good place to start.

  • Plan to visit the same place several times.
  • If necessary, make an itinerary to visit a place in a different country. If anything, some countries don't have many UFO sightings.
  • Go where there is no heavy air traffic, so you don't mistake human air transport for UFOs.

Step 6. Distinguish UFOs from man-made airplanes

After you have hunted UFOs for some time, you will be able to see the pattern. Do some research to see if what you see does have an explanation; for example, if you see a UFO near an air base, you may see a man-made airplane, even though what you see may look alien. An actual UFO may have the following characteristics:

  • UFOs do not move and go in a straight line, but move up or down, or meander. UFOs may have unusual movements.
  • UFO lights do not flicker like airplanes in general.
  • UFOs may have a disk-like shape, a triangle, or even a completely different shape.

  • Mutual UFO Network
  • UFOdb
  • National UFO Reporting Center


  • Prepare your passport and pack your gear. Traveling around the world to research and hunt for UFOs is an option. You could be in a desert, forest, or mountain top.
  • Never pay someone to join a "UFO club" or view UFO photos/videos. This is a scam.
  • Observation skills must be perfect. You should feel comfortable being out in the open as you will be getting away from big cities (light sources).


  • Be aware that this study takes a long time, so it may affect your relationship with the people in your life. There is work to be done at night and you should make some time to get away from home. Your partner may not approve or support this activity.
  • You have to be willing to accept ridicule. Keep a sense of humor, you'll need it.
  • It will be difficult to fund your adventures if you are not from affluent circles.
