I am off the radio right now so I am taking calls.   We switch every two hours.  Anyway about five minutes ago this guy calls up.


reportee:  how can i report a UFO in the sky right now!?!?!?!?

Me:

reportee: No I am very serious sir!  

Me:ok well, here is the number to NASA.  


It was short and sweet, but its my first UFO call.  Not my first crazy, but none the less I thought I'd share.

Thats great I don't think there was any better way to handle that call. I'll have to keep that in mind when I get one.

Should have asked if he'd been stockpiling KY in his "Go Bag".   Ya never know when you will get the visit.

Man, you should hear some of the calls you get on an Air Force Base.

At least he didn't say he just shot at a UFO & needs to report it

I remember my first UFO call.  Citizen reporting a large silver disc moving West to East across the city.  I was stlil a probationary dispatcher and the Comm Supervisor was out of the room.  So what do I do?  I put it out on the air as a BOLO....and whatta ya know, sectors cars even acknowledged, marked enroute and one even called "in pursuit" at speeds approaching 5 mph.....Lasted about 2 minutes and then the officer advised that it has entered a neighboring county and they were breaking off.  He called in later to say it was just an oddly shaped silver balloon and was just having a little fun with us.  

The second UFO call was last summer.   Now that I'm the supervisor I told the dispatcher to keep the guy on the phone while I walked outside and looked for it.  According to the RP's desc it was supposed to be right above dispatch.  I was sad that it wasn't there.  I think it would be great if the crazies were actually right about something.  Kinda like those "Someone is putting listening devices in my house and I think its the government because I used to work for the CIA" type calls.  I like those.

Not anymore - project Bluebook dropped several years ago.  There used to be a number where one of the SAC bases would take reports, but they stopped it.  There is no longer an actual government agency that will take UFO reports.  You'd have to find a number for some of the California/Utah/Nevada wackos.

You tryin' to get us all (i.e. the whole planet) killed, Citabria?

In the world we live in now, shouldn't this have gone through HomeSec first?  If it needs to go to NASA, they'll route it there.  



We ain't alone, man.  Haven't you been watchin' Threshold?
