There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) is a website that catalogues as many UFO sightings as possible. The organisation was founded in 1974 and initially offered a telephone hotline for reporting UFOs, later adding a fax line and web server. They have over 70,000 written statements describing the events, many recent, and some that date from the early 1900's. It catalogues roughly 500-1,000 UFO new sightings a month. Its current director, Peter Davenport, appears weekly on Coast to Coast AM, and monthly on the Jeff Rense radio show. Peter Davenport also commonly makes an appearance on the Spaced Out Radio show (hosted by the "Paranormal Attorney" Michael W. Hall). Because of recent sightings of the planet Venus, and the Space X "Starlink" satellites, the National UFO Reporting center has a backlog of reports.
NUFORC is a different organization from MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), and carries a separate database of sightings.
