About British Ufology

What is British Ufology?

Formed in 2015, British Ufology is a research organisation studying UFO sightings/encounters across Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) from a scientific perspective. We have a small team of UK-based researchers and investigators who remain open-minded at all times and who have no specific beliefs or preconceptions about what UFOs may be.

Our Goals

1. To log, analyse and scientifically investigate UFO sightings over and around Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales).

2. To educate the general public about what’s visible/flying in our skies, from the mundane to the extraordinary.

3. To maintain a small reference library of key UFO publications from around the world.

4. To provide the opportunity for like-minded individuals to meet and discuss the topic of ufology.

5. To maintain and moderate an online discussion forum dedicated to the topic of ufology relevant to Great Britain.

Who's Who?

Our committee consists of a core team of four individuals.* Additionally, we have a number of 'Field Investigators' covering all parts of England, Scotland and Wales. (*From time-to-time, the committee may choose to co-opt up to two additional committee members, dependent upon current organisational needs.)

President/Co-founder: Chris Munns

Chris, who holds two degrees, first became interested in ufology some 40+ years ago after a childhood sighting in Orpington on the Kent/South London border. Prior to co-founding British Ufology in 2015, he was a Field Investigator and then National Director for the UK with US-based UFO research organisation, 'MUFON'.

Lead Investigator/Co-founder: Glen Richardson

Prior to co-founding British Ufology, Glen was an independent UFO investigator with some 25+ years experience. He is well-known in UFO circles, regularly appearing as a guest on UFO-related podcasts, while he also formed and runs 'NEPS' (the Northern England Paranormal Society).
