Many of you, I am sure, watched the Discovery Channel's miniseries "UFO's Over Earth". I could have easily jumped on the bandwagon and supported my team, since I am a field investigator for the Mutual UFO Network, but I wanted time to digest what I saw and consider my feelings.

The perception of UFO investigations is of naive enthusiasts gathering to tell fantastical stories and give outrageous, often paranoid opinions. This perception of gullibility and amateurism casts all of Ufology in a bad light, and is far from reality.

The most appreciated aspect of the show was unfortunately partially left on the cutting room floor, but was still evident on the footage that made it to broadcast, which was the painstaking effort put into anomaly investigations by MUFON personnel.

When an investigator receives an assignment, it is given the most sober consideration. Most of the time, a story is conveyed with little to no corroboration. The investigator has to hone their interviewing skills to ferret out the honest observer, who might also have been affected emotionally or spiritually, from the hoaxer who might want attention or to thwart MUFON's investigative ability by bogging hardworking investigators down with un-credible yarns.

Occasionally, a typical investigator will be assigned a case that presents multiple witnesses and possibly some photographs or video. This raises the credibility factor and requires a greater investment of time in checking and cross checking facts. You see many of these cases on internet sites and places like You Tube. More is done within MUFON than just posting pictures and trying to raise the incredibility and excitement level. Such postings are generally amateurish in nature and usually result in little more than encouraging "enthusiasts" to tell more outrageous stories.
