“”The Scientific Study of UFOs for the Benefit of Humanity
|—MUFON's website motto|
MUFON was founded in 1969 as the Midwest UFO Network. Its current headquarters are in Cincinnati, Ohio. In addition to their website, they publish the MUFON UFO Journal.
 MUFON's sadly unscientific method
According to their website, "MUFON strives to use the scientific method." (So far, so good...) "Data is collected through online reports..." (Wait. Someone online saying they saw a UFO is considered data?) "A MUFON Field Investigator then interviews the witnesses who made the report..." (Ah. At MUFON, anecdotal evidence = science) 
 Online alien abduction quiz
More clues to MUFON's approach to science can be found at their online "Experiencer Questionnaire"...which soberly advises: "If you answered 15 or more questions in the affirmative, you might be an ETI contact experiencer."
 But wait, there's more
