Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

The man who invented ufology

Excerpts from Stan Deyo’s “UFOs Are Here!” (1977), a very interesting documentary for the many interviews with famous figures exactly thirty years ago, from Spielberg — who was about to release Close Encounters — to Hynek and ValleĆ©. On the clip above, a short commentary by Kenneth Arnold himself, plus Ray Palmer on the Shaver Mystery.

For more on the influence of Palmer and the Shaver Mystery on the origins of ufology, check John Keel’s 1986 article on Whole Earth Review, The Man Who Invented Flying Saucers.
