Here's where you can go if you're looking for UFOs:

The UFO Guide (http://www.rahul.net/rogerd/ufo.guide.html): Compiled by Nick Humphries, this is a very good, alphabetic guide to basic ufology facts - people, places, things, events. Topics covered range from George Adamski, a renowed UFO hoaxer, to a description of the "The Greys" (the most commonly described alien) to the 1947 Roswell case, a much-discussed crash of either a flying saucer or weather balloon.MUFON (http://www.rutgers.edu/(tilde)mcgrew/mufon/): The Mutual UFO Network was founded in 1969 as a multidisciplinary, grassroots effort to solve the UFO mystery. It counts 5,000-plus members. The site lists information about the organization, its UFO hotline (1-800-UFO-2166), symposium and monthly journal.

UFO Online Links

(http://oasi.shiny.it/Homes/CISU/english/http.htm): An index of UFO-related links. The site bills itself as the "most complete collection of UFO and UFO-related sites," with listings for the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia. There are 10 Italian sites alone.

SETI (http://www.seti-inst.edu/toc.html): The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence site, the organization behind the defunct Project Phoenix, a NASA-sponsored search for electromagnetic wave emissions in space. Among current projects listed at the site are a study for one of the key enzymes of cellular life and an investigation of the formation and evolution of young stars.

Crop Circle Connector (http://www.hub.co.uk/intercafe/cropcircle/connector.html): The Crop Circle Connector debuted last summer on the Web. It is a comprehensive site for information about the crop circles that have baffled or buffaloed people, depending on your point of view, for decades. The circles are most prevalent in England. The site features lots of photographs and diagrams detailing the circles, including a "crop circle of the week." The week I peeked the feature was of a circle that appeared this month in a canola field at Silbery Hill.

UFO Books (http://ernie.bgsu.edu/(tilde)jzawodn/ufo/ufo-books.html), which is a quick guide to a wide range of UFO books, focused on views of UFO researchers who "believe UFOs are a mystery needing a solution." Or, (http://www.public.iastate.edu/(tilde)edis/skeptic/ufo.html), a catalog of books and articles debunking ufology.

Victor Alatorre's UFO Homepage

(http://www.mio.uwosh.edu/(tilde)alatorrv/ufo/ufo.html): A very nice compilation of UFO-related information, including links to Usenet groups and paranormal sites. The site gives equal play to the pro and con sides of the UFO/alien debate.

You'll find Hanger Umpteen, a backhand reference to Hanger 18 of UFO lore, where info on the "50 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time" is stored. And you'll also see the Pleiades, an index to sources on the constellation some people think is home to extraterrestial life.

The Pleiades (http://www.powertech.no/(tilde)pleiades/): Karen Lustrup is Webmaster of this site, which goes where few other pages have dared venture before. You can file your own abduction report and find out how to check your body for alien implants or flourescent markings. There also links to Lustrup's favorite astronomical and earthquake Web sites as well as to information on spiritual channeling and light workers.

Guardian (http://www.fis.utoronto.ca/home/students/mckenzie/Guardian.html): This is the work of David McKenzie, who says he started as a disbeliever and was transformed after reading Whitley Strieber's book "Communion." The site is his contribution to the search for the truth behind the UFO/alien debate.

Cyberdelic's UFO Landing Pad (http://www.nova.cioe.com/html/alien.html): Cyberdelic's page is useful for its links to newsgroups. You can also take a UFO survey. Of the 110 people who'd taken it when I visited the page, only 4.5 percent said they don't believe in UFOs and only 20 percent said they don't believe in aliens. Two-thirds of those surveyed said they have never been abducted by aliens and more than a third said they'd never seen a UFO.

For Skeptics (http://www.xnet.com/(tilde)blatura/skep(underline key)3.html): Offers reasonable explanations for purported UFOs and alien encounters. Crop circles, for example, are hoaxes, plain and simple, the site says. There's also a guide to how to test a channeler's authenticity.
