Meet J. Allen Hynek, the Astronomer Who First Classified UFO ‘Close Encounters’

The case against UFOs has not been put to rest. Although UFO “officially” do not exist, reports of sightings continue to be made, and the internet is filled with thousands of photos and videos of them.

Although the scientific world has put UFOs out to pasture, the evidence used to dismiss them is extremely scanty and unscientific. Hynek, a scientist himself and the only government-paid ufologist in history, looks at the decisions made by officialdom in the early days of ufology, and how these have held us back – to the point that we are still naively talking about UFOs as we were talking about them in the s.

Has 70 years of research made no difference at all in our understanding? Hynek proves that there is a conspiracy afoot to hide the facts, and that there are many cases that still need to be explained by mainstream science – not dismissed with facile jokes and stupid logic.

The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry by J. Allen Hynek

Citing specific cases, Hynek challenges those in the ivory tower by raising questions that have still not been answered, and refuting mainstream arguments that have yet to be proven. This special edition also features an introduction by another impeccable scientist, Jacques Vallee.

Allen Hynek served as official astronomical consultant to the U. Air Force’s Project Blue Book. He was an astronomer and Professor of Astronomy at Ohio State University, and later became chairman of the astronomy department at Northwestern University in Chicago. Jacque Vallee received his Ph.

It is more of a dissertation of the scientific aspects of collecting experisnce with excerpted examples of UFO reports. I was more interested in a book with complete UFO reports that would then be discussed in detail from Hynek’s scientific point of view.

I have plenty of experirnce about the study of UFOs strictly from the skeptic and scientific view already. I am looking more for books geared to the early classic cases. This a memoir of his years from the closing of Project Grudge to the early years of Blue Book under his leadership These were the glory days of the Air Force’s handling of UFO reports when a serious and objective approach was initiated by Ruppelt to find honest answers to the UFO problem.

Under his leadership and organizational skills, the Air Force or military personel and civilians alike were encouraged to report to his unit about their uvo where an earnest effort was made to find the correct solution.

And, after exhaustive research and study if Ruppelt found it was an “unkonwn”, that is how he reported ufoo.

His work was unbiased. It is unfortunate he died so young at Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I first purchased this book many years ago, at a yard sale, for experiece cents.

I recently re-read it in Kindle format, and was just as impressed as the first time I read it. I believe that history will ultimately vindicate Hynek. It will show that he was a great man, with admirable courage and scientific integrity–despite the requisite nonsense from the uninformed. He never went so far as to posit that ufos were extraterrestrial, but instead admitted that he simply didn’t know what they were.

Meet J. Allen Hynek, the Astronomer Who First Classified UFO ‘Close Encounters’ – HISTORY

At any rate, this is the one UFO book that you absolutely should read, especially if you are a skeptic. There has been so much garbage produced on this topic, it’s almost as though nobody has ever read this book– which is a must.


It is a fascinating and utterly scientific investigation of a controversial topic. It will enlighten anyone who has the courage to read it with an open mind. This is the scientist in charge of Project Blue Book which was created by the government not to explain the UFO phenomenon but to explain it away as he regretfully found out during the course of almost 22 years as head of the Air Force office in charge of collecting UFO data.

The book is a collection of very interesting UFO sightings reported by individuals all over the country which were never fully investigated. One person found this helpful. I enjoyed this volume more than other books by Hynek I’ve read, there were some touches of humor and some very interesting insights into a bygone era. No tin foil heads here. This guy was a scientist and was a sceptic before he examined the evidence.

This is a purely objective report that makes no assumptions and just give the facts which is something you cannot say about most of the books written on this subject.

So far so good, informative. This is a no-nonsense literay work from the most credible investigator on the UFO subject. This is the text book to use on UFO investigations by scholars and lay men alike.
