Noted Flying Saucer and/or UFO Landings up to and including 1969


Click HERE for a listing, from the Catoe Library of Congress UFO/flying saucer Bibliography for 1969, of book and magazine (et cetera) articles that dealt with alleged landings of flying saucers or UFOs.



  • I do not understand Catoe's list. Surely by 1969 there were a vast number of reported contacts and landings. Even Adamski's 3 books are omitted. What about Bethurum, van Tassel and the numerous others, some well-known others obscure.

    This Catoe list looks pretty sparse to me!

  • CDA:

    You didn't read my first note about the Bibliography.

    I culled listings of reports we've dealt with here or some I thought needed airing.

    I have selected the items from hundreds in the Bibliography.

    The Bibliography is comprehensive, I assure you.

    The Adamski and common reports we are all familiar with I have excluded except for a few that will show up later that have elements not generally known.

    You have got to read more carefully my postings.

  • Quite right. I did read your notes carelessly.

    Catoe's list obviously deals only with contacts and, apart from the Hills, omits the abductions since the great majority of the latter were post-1969 (or were written about post-1969 anyway).

    Think of the size of such a listing were one to be produced now.

    You would need an encyclopedia!

  • There are Hill listings, and Allingham's thing. and much, much more.

    I've only pulled a portion so far, but have a slew I will be putting up soon.

    The Bibliography provides all that had been written or provided (news shows, cartoons, print media, et cetera) about flying saucers and/or UFOs: Air Force documents, conspiracy theories, and tons of far-out conjectures.

    Everything [sic] available about the topic from before 1947 up through 1969.

    It is truly comprehensive.

    I'll get to them ASAP.

    (I'd provide the Bibliography intact, except that I don't want to provide it to the slackers who stop by here, take material, and pretend they originated it...you know whom I mean)

  • ...thank you for posting a pulp cover featuring the work of the incomparable Heinlein!

    oh yeah, I also am of the opinion that whatever Socorro was, it was not a made up story, but something that Zamora didn't understand...

    (...it is simply sad that so many 'UFO experts' are unaware of the concept of TANSTAAFL....)
