DR IRENA SCOTT received her PhD from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in physiology, did post-doctoral research at Cornell University, and has been an Assistant Professor at St. Bonaventure University. Her MS was from the University of Nevada, her BS from Ohio State University, and she has done research and teaching at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. She has been employed in several organizations most heavily involved in UFO study. The Defense Intelligence Agency employed her in PhD level research in satellite photography including in its Air Order of Battle section, which involved aircraft identification with some of the highest security clearances in the government. She was employed in MS level work as a Physical Scientist/Cartographer in the DMA Aerospace Center/Aerospace Center using satellite photography, and she worked at Battelle Memorial Institute. She has been sent for her work related purposes to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. She was a volunteer astronomer at the Ohio State University Radio Observatory (noted for the WOW SETI signal), and has taken flying lessons. She was a correspondent for Popular Mechanics magazine, and her publications include books, and works in scientific journals, magazines, and newspapers. She has worked in photography and is a licensed drone pilot.

She served on the MUFON Board of Directors (1993 to 2000), and is a MUFON consultant in physiology and astronomy and a field investigator. As the MUFON Director of Publications, she co-edited eight symposium proceedings, including several of the most important MUFON publications. She was a founding member of the Mid-Ohio Research Associates (MORA) and an editor for the Ohio UFO Notebook. Her UFO publications include numerous articles in the MUFON UFO Journal, the International UFO Reporter, and FATE magazine. She has taken a scientific approach to UFO phenomena and published papers about UFO data in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

LEE SPEIGEL: has been interested in the idea of UFOs, aliens, living dinosaurs and the whole range of topics that often overlap the worlds of science and unexplained phenomena since he was a young boy.
His first foray into the pursuit and investigation of these topics was in 1975 when he produced and wrote a documentary record album, “UFOs: The Credibility Factor,” for CBS Inc. It marked the first time that military and scientific voices came together to disclose their personal UFO encounters and to call for government recognition of the phenomenon.
In 1978, in another early attempt at UFO disclosure, but this time on a world stage, Speigel became the only person in history to produce a major presentation on UFOs at the United Nations. Under the sponsorship of Grenada, he brought together leading military and scientific experts who urged world leaders to establish an international UFO study panel.
Between 1978 and 1986, Speigel produced, wrote and hosted NBC Radio’s “UFO Reports,” “Unexplained Phenomena” and “The Edge of Reality” (nearly 1500 local and national programs, spanning eight years.)

1978 was also important as Speigel became one of the first media personalities – through his NBC Radio features — to bring public awareness of the now-legendary 1947 Roswell, NM, UFO crash; through the efforts of nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, Speigel produced a weeklong series of radio reports that featured exclusive interviews with military personnel who were directly involved with the initial Roswell cover-up.

UFO Flaps into the Modern Age

The modern age documented sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) started during World War II, when fighter pilots from both the Allied and the Axis powers reported fireballs as large as 300 feet and as small as 1 feet in diameter that slowed down, accelerated and circled around them.

And since then, there have been a flurry of sightings of unexplained flying objects reported across the world.

However some of the years have experienced  more incidents than other years and thus such years of heightened UFO activity are being referred to as UFO flaps.
