Herein will be offered the links to active researchers and analysts addressing the ufo mystery and will include a description of the work focus and content.
Taking up the vocabulary recently used in the course of some reported battles among different folks on Facebook, on the battlegrounds of different groups and pages there, I will break this up into three categories: The Old Crew and The Young Guns and the Young Guns twitter participation network.
~The Old Crew
Still active, looming large from his perch as elder statesman of the “Invisible College”:
Born 1949, a student of UFOs beginning in high school and who began writing on ufos in the early 70s when he also was a valued field investigator for APRO.
Also, a very long military career, first in the Army and then Air Force.
Many books published, a recent one on Roswell (previously backed by him) suggesting that deeper investigation revealed a weakened evidentiary base for that event involving aliens.
Very active now with looking at old and new cases here:
Actively researching since 1968 (originally in the United Kingdom, then from Australia), he has held significant leadership roles in MUFON and elsewhere and has published extensively…and, soberly.
Unlike Randle, who has no social media existence outside the comment section of his blog, he is on Twitter and has had many recent ground breaking exposing of key matters, posted at this blog:
Clark has no active presence online except via occasions like the recent interview of him on Paracast. His body of work can be accessed via Amazon, of course. He is the senior ufo historian still alive today. The North Ontario Research and Studies wrote a great background here:
Our senior in house journalist:
Long-time mainstream news reporter (from southwest Florida) who for decades has provided significant ufo reportage, maintains the “only mainstream news ufo weblog”:
Involved just shy of 20 years now, she is one of the 4 journalists authoring the ground breaking NY Times story on Dec 16 2017. An established author on this subject, she now has a website that also includes her work related to researching the evidentiary basis for survival of death:
Keeping everyone on their toes, like for a real long time, this established author with a skeptical laser focus keeps very current here:
–Linda Moulten Howe
Long time journalist and senior ufologist, the portal to her work is here:
Well known and popular, he has long focused on the government coverup side of things but lately, with his wife, has been fruitfully branching out into other aspects lately. His site links to his other platforms:
Well known author, and contact experiencer, hosts an informative website:
An Australian based investigator who has published key works based on a “forensic science approach” to alien abduction cases.
Like Randle, he has an active blog examing the old and new:
Going back many decades as also a senior historian (in early days with the Center Against UFO Secrecy) like all of the above figures, he is somewhat Luddite like Clark in exhibiting today an online presence only now and then thru interviews by online broadcasting hosts.
But, his archival of resources is of immense value:
Inspired by sightings many decades ago, part of a big wave in his region of Canada near the border near the US, he became involved in studying the mystery.
For decades, his studies and published works, and his predidents and ufo website, focused on coverup and disclosure issues.
More recently he has expanded his focus to direct contact experiences and in so doing, upgraded his communications platform here:
The key resource for the ongoing reporting and publishing of ufo events, online in real time by those having a sighting, is the National UFO Reporting Center.
He has maintained this up in the state of Washington for the last 25 years. He was inspired by a personal sighting when young and investigated now long ago cases. Prior to the reporting center, he had rich and varied careers, including as a Russian translator.
Today, at 76, Maccabee as a senior investigator, analyst, and historian, maintains an active presence even on social media platforms as well as current cases.
As FUFOR’s first director upon its founding in the late 70s, and long time associate in investigations by the ither major outfits, he shares the old and new in his work here:
Around a very long time (I saw him lecture at a college in the esrly 70s), he is still active and very newsworthy (seeing how fellow Old Crew guy George Knapp just today reported on Hastings’ formal call for military witnesses).
His special focus has been on “ufos and nukes”:
Based in South Africa and engaged as a teacher in the Exopolitics Institute and further as compiler on an online “exopedia”, he took the lead in publishing The Journal of Abduction-Encounter Research after the death of Elaine Douglass:
–John Greenewald, jr
Born in 1981, he is likely the youngest of The Old Crew, but he created as a teen the now long-running (over 20 years) The Black Vault. Focusing largely on FOIA filings over that period, i see his case files include assigned BV investigators to current sighting reports.
Is very active on social media and in using broadcast mediums. Go here:
Long-time investigator and author of quality work, also actively engaging as interviewee on many broadcast platforms.
A long time observer, analyst and reporter who often casts a critical eye on the ufo community ways, his in the weeds approach to examining all aspects can be found here:
He has, after years of posting compilations online of direct encounters with unknown beings, mistly associated with ufos, he has published many volumes now documenting all time oeriods since the earliest of such reports:
Lecturer and writer, author of Silver Screen Saucers (2015) and UFOs: Reframing the Debate (2017)
Chant Hannah site:
He lives in Canada with his wife, two children, and a massive cat.
The above by no means covers everyone of note, and doesnt include any from the grumpiest section of the old crew (ie those noted to have disowned young guns and to have been abusive in their dismissal). Note: some of the old crew may be fairly young, but studying this matter for many years.
—Good Recommendations from others to add to list (ongoing):
Retired journalist from UK. [Will add most suitable link when determined.]
~The Young Guns
A self-identifying network of newer ufo researchers has apparently adopted the appellation used by Old Crew guy Grant Cameron, who in appreciative remarks called them “the young guns”. Young Gun Dave Beaty has formed a Facebook Group, as of Feb 15th, for this developing network.
I am not on FB, but I see many of the young guns in action on twitter (some of whom may be not so young in age, just relatively new to ufo studies and shared research). Update late 2019: against my better judgement, i am back on FB, singularly focused on ufo subject.
This category section of the list also will be updated over time.
From Arizona, she had a vivid daylight sighting at the age of ten and today brings a focus on foreign embassies and their knowledge and attitudes related to this mystery.
Perhaps inspired by the big reveal of Dec 16 2017, she began recently posting her reporting and analysis here:
He has been seemingly very inspired by the big reveal of Dec 16 2017 and in late October 2018 began publishing one of the best online resources addressing developments with a particular focus on TTSA and AATIP, his contributions often groundbreaking and received with growing appreciation by the old crew:
He also has a site, also with a recent birthdate (May 2018) that is jaw droppingly good, focusing on bringing groundbreaking information to our attention. Also seemingly inspired by the big reveal of Dec 16 2017 to publish.
He is a film maker in Las Vegas.
His site goes deep into the weeds on matters especially related to AATIP and TTSA:
–Andreas Freeman Stahl (an alias to keep privacy)
A clinical assistant in neuroligical rehab, and family man, he has a months old site also. Like all young gun sites, the content and appearance are very high in quality. He identifies working with team members Keith Mayoh, Jason Goldthorpe, Sven Koblow, Christopher Flynn.
This young gun recently scored a great interview with old crew guy Nick Pope:
–Ryan aka You Tube’s “UFO Jesus”
Luis Elizondo reportedly loves watching this you tube channel, heavy on analysis based on mostly good reporting.
He is active on twitter with his speculative musings. For his continued chronicling and analysis on youtube, here is his library:
Inspired by a series of sightings in 2013, she for a time became active in MUFON and was Utah state director after serving as a field investigator. Today she works through other vehicles for investigation and also serves as a key journalistic resource on a digital radio network:
With a popular journalistic podcast, “Somewhere in the Skies”, he is also co host of the tv show on CW called Roswell: Secrets Decoded and an established author:
He is an established journalist, formerly as a reporter for the Houston Chronicle and now teaching journalism in that city, and also an established author who provides this hub for developing news and info:
Bringing in the important focus on genetics and anthropological studies with groundbreaking research and insight, he and his wife are established authors and lecturers:
–Paul James Dean
He is an Australian UFO Researcher and FOIA investigator, with notable results.
He publishes newsworthy articles here:
–Diana Walsh Pasulka
She is now an established author working from her base as professor of religious studies (and dept chair) at the University of North Carolina.
For the last 6 years she adopted a focus on the ufo matter and has just published (early 2019) a book that radically breaks new ground:
Lue became manager in recent years of a special program at the DOD in the DIA called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program and resigned in October 2017 to join the civilian based operation known as the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Sciences.
While this new young gun is catching up on UFO lore history, he has been, and is, also making history with his new collegues.
A young man from Michigan who has experienced sightings and a clear earlier encounter with beings from a landed craft (when age 4), he actively engages in a broad network of researchers despite now painfully suffering a debilitating neurological disorder.
The participant before as a guest or in many panels on broadcast shows, he started a you tube channel after encouragement to do so:
A tv producer and documentary film maker, his well done short film graphically representing the famous 2005 Nimitz Encounter has been very valuable.
He has a venue on FB, where I am not, but can be found on twitter @dave_beaty .
A full time author and professional musician (tuba) since 2015, he now lives in Georgia. Was a contributor to Robbie Graham’s UFOs: Reframing the Debate.

–API Case Files
—Good Recommendations from others to add to this list (ongoing):
By no means exhaustive, this compilation does cover a wide range but excludes scammers and cultist movement figures, some more well known than clearly more sober and honest folks. That is why you dont see names like Wilcock, Goode, Salla, and Greer, to name a few.
I thought i would share my vote on who the all-time ufological and contemporary MVP researchers:
All-Time: Coral Lorenzen (Jacques Vallee runner up)
Contemporary: Ardy Sixkiller Clarke (Jerome Clark runner up)
