UFO Research Basics Online Course: lesson 1

Lesson 1

Hello and welcome back to our online course on UFO Research. I'm your I'm your trainer, Lee.

I want to introduce you to the basic principles and understanding of just what is out there. Researching UFO sightings reported by the general public is a great responsibility but I'm sure you'll be fine and will do great. Let's do this.

Today, we will dive into Lesson 1:

Understanding common UFO characteristics. This lesson will provide you with the essential knowledge and skills needed to identify and analyze UFO sightings.

Getting started

One of the most important aspects of UFO research is recognizing common characteristics of these unidentified flying objects. By understanding these characteristics, you will be better equipped to differentiate between UFOs and other aerial phenomena.

Firstly, let's talk about the shape of UFOs. They come in various forms, such as discs, cylinders, spheres, and triangles. It's crucial to familiarize yourself with these shapes and their distinguishing features. For example, disc-shaped UFOs often exhibit smooth edges and a metallic sheen.

Next, let's discuss UFO flight patterns. UFOs are known to exhibit extraordinary flight maneuvers that defy the laws of physics. They can hover, accelerate rapidly, change direction instantly, and even disappear in the blink of an eye. By studying these flight patterns, you can determine if a sighting is consistent with previous UFO reports.

Another important characteristic is the presence of lights. UFOs often emit bright, colorful lights or have a pulsating glow. Pay attention to the color, intensity, and pattern of the lights, as they can provide valuable clues about the nature of the object.

Furthermore, consider the sound, or lack thereof. Many UFO sightings are accompanied by an eerie silence, despite their apparent proximity. This absence of noise is a common characteristic reported by witnesses and can help differentiate UFOs from conventional aircraft.

Now, let's move on to examining some real-life cases to further assimilate this knowledge. Take, for instance, the Phoenix Lights incident in 1997. Thousands of witnesses reported seeing a formation of lights in the night sky, spanning over two miles in length. The lights remained stationary for an extended period before disappearing. This case exemplifies the importance of observing UFO characteristics and documenting them accurately.

To enhance your understanding, I recommend researching and reading about famous UFO sightings such as the Roswell incident, the Rendlesham Forest incident, and the Battle of Los Angeles. These cases provide invaluable insights into common UFO characteristics and can deepen your knowledge.

Now that you have learned about the various aspects of common UFO characteristics, I encourage you to move on to the next topic. But before that, let's ensure you have mastered the materials. Take a short test to assess your understanding of the key concepts we discussed in this lesson. The test will solidify your knowledge and prepare you for the upcoming lessons.

End of lesson 1

Thank you for joining me today, and I look forward to seeing you in Lesson 2. Remember, keep your eyes to the sky and stay curious!
