A group of UFOlogists and historians said that they plan to unveil a massive archive of records related to the phenomenon in New Mexico in the coming years.
David Marler, a historian and UFO researcher, said that the group’s archive will be located in a facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
The facility will house documents related to the UFO phenomenon that were collected by various researchers. Some of these include Rod Dyke, Jan Aldrich, and Rob Swiatek.
The facility will also house the files of the J. Allen Hynek Center, which was established in 1990 and is dedicated to investigating the UFO phenomenon. Following the transfer of files by Mark Rodeghier, the center’s director, to Marler in November 2020, the personal files of the scientist, who was the Air Force’s scientific advisor on the matter, were included in the collection.
Currently, Marler is in possession of files that used to be handled by the National Investigative Committee on Aerial Phenomena, which used to be the largest organization in the country focused on investigating the UFO phenomenon. He also noted that various private UFO collections have been promised to the facility within the next couple of years.
The group noted that the files they have gathered will help them in carrying out further research regarding the UFO phenomenon. They also hope to provide an accurate historical record of the event.
During an interview with The Debrief, Marler praised the increasing interest in the UFO phenomenon. He also noted that the public’s newfound interest in the subject has helped improve the research regarding the matter.
Despite the increasing number of people interested in the UFO phenomenon, Marler noted that a small percentage of the public is still not interested in learning more about the history of the matter.
According to Marler, the public’s newfound interest in the subject has helped improve the research regarding the matter. He also noted that the media and the intelligence community have helped organize the discussion around the UFO phenomenon.
In The Debrief, Marler noted that everybody seems to be looking back on 2004 as the year when the UFO phenomenon first emerged. He also noted that there is a rich and diverse history related to this subject. Marler is working to preserve the information that the public has not seen.
Aside from the files related to the US, Marler noted that the organization will also house other files related to the UFO phenomenon. This will allow the public to gain a more comprehensive historical perspective regarding the matter.
In addition to the files related to the US, Marler noted that the organization will also house other files related to the UFO phenomenon. He noted that he is working with translators to make English versions of the documents.
Barry Greenwood, a long-time researcher who has been collecting historical data on the UFO phenomenon, noted that the public should have access to publicly accessible records related to this subject. He has been using the Freedom of Information Act to gather information about the phenomenon for several decades.
According to Greenwood, the release of these files is the culmination of many years of work by people who have been trying to collect information about the UFO phenomenon. He noted that if the organization can make an effort to scan the materials and distribute them in various parts, it can be used around the world.
Greenwood noted that the release of these files is a significant historical event. He said that during the time he was trying to collect information about the UFO phenomenon, he and other researchers were restricted to only accessing files in the US and Canada.
Marler agreed with Greenwood’s statements and noted the importance of making available historical records related to investigations related to the UFO phenomenon.
According to Marler, the situation regarding the UFO phenomenon is at a critical point. He noted that various government agencies and scientific organizations are starting to acknowledge the legitimacy of the phenomenon. For instance, NASA recently announced that it would be conducting its own study on the matter.
Several professional aviation organizations have also started to acknowledge the legitimacy of the UFO phenomenon. In recent days, an organization dedicated to astronautics and aeronautics announced the launch of a community of interest that was led by Ryan Graves, a former fighter pilot for the US Navy.
According to Marler, the various organizations and individuals who have been expressing their interest in the UFO phenomenon have started to acknowledge the historical significance of the subject. He noted that the language in the upcoming FY 2023 NDAA is also starting to address this issue.
Marler noted that the organization’s goal is to establish an archival center that would be able to collect and digitize all of the historical records related to the UFO phenomenon. He said that the location of the facility would be based in Albuquerque, which has a strong historical relationship with the subject.
Through his organization, Marler has also started to establish collaborations with other organizations, such as the University of New Mexico. These collaborations could allow the university’s students to participate in the digitization and collection management of the UFO files.
To support the establishment of the facility, the organization has established an official website, where the public can contribute to its efforts to provide a home for the records.
According to Marler, there is currently no National Archives of Ufology in the US. He and his colleagues are working toward establishing a facility that would be able to house the largest UFO archive in the country.
