An unidentified flying object, or UFO, in its most general definition, is any apparent anomaly in the sky (or near or on the ground, but observed hovering, landing, or departing into the sky) that is not readily identifiable as any known object or phenomenon by visual observation and/or use of associated instrumentation such as radar. These anomalies were referred to popularly as "flying saucers" or "flying discs" during the late 1940s and early 1950s."
Wikipedia definition of UFO
That is the wikipedia's definition of Unidentified Flying Object. ufo-hunters.com collects a huge data set of sightings all over the world. Our main purpose is to collaborate spreading objective UFO data. We thank the work of organizations such as NUFORC and MUFON that collect and investigate sighting reports and are a source of inspiration for us.
Our secondary purpose was to experiment with new technologies, and had the challenge to publish this project to production in a few weeks. At this point we know we chose the best possible stack and are proud to claim that all the resources and technologies we used are open source.
Currently we are focused in the analysis of all these reports trying to get insight from the data.

José Luis kindly designed our logo, images, icons and a lot more... he gave ufo-hunters.com an indentity.
Using his own words, José Luis is "just a lucky person in love with my family and my work. I’ve always been a Visual Designer. Everywhere I look, I see design and taste. I’m an essence searcher who admires simplicity. That’s why Design is essential for me, since it ‘s the ultimate expression and shape of everything."
Art Champoux has been an UFO investigator since 1964. He has worked with Ray Fowler, Walter Webb, John Keel, and a lady that he cannot name, as well as several different UFO groups.
In the 1960s he collaborated with APRO, CAPER, NIACP, being an investigator when the Aerial Phenomena Research Organisation (APRO) was very prominent in the UFO investigating business. Now he collaborates with MUFON.
The world of the paranormal has always fascinated him, even as a small boy he went through some eerie happenings. His Great Grandmother was a Spirit medium, so maybe he inherited some kind of a special connection with the paranormal. He has written articles for several publications and his leanings are much like John Keel's. He believes there is an ultra-force, not from outer space, but much like John Keel's ideas or even Jacques Vallees' contention..."We are but one dimension out of many that reign on this planet".
Paul Shishis has been experiencing contact with ETs and UFOs for some time in Canada.
He has been viewing and capturing both pictures and videos of UFOs in Ontario, Canada, for many years.
He thinks "It is now time in my life to step forward to help bring awareness to the citizens of the world that indeed there are higher forces surrounding us all. I mainly stand for love and peace which has been missed for 1000's of years. There is indeed an alien presences amongst this planet and I feel it a duty to humanity in the sharing of truth and justice for free will of our birthright."
MUPHART (Massachussets Unknown Phenomena Hunting and Research Team) is a UFO hunting group from the Boston Area, MA. Since 2009 it has been looking for UFO's after its founder, Damian, saw several in a short time span.
Since 2013 it has caught many UFO's on film, and posted many ufo footage videos on its youtube channel.
Damian from MUPHART films the night sky with a digital camcorder every monday night looking for UFO's. Most of the time nothing is seen. But every once and a while something weird gets on camera. Entire investigations into the night sky are filmed on MUPHART's UFO channel once a week. Check them out there.
