Mutual UFO Network releases statement on UAP hearing

CINCINNATI – May 24, 2022 – (


MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, applauds Members of the United States House of Representatives and, in particular, the House Intelligence Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation (C3) Subcommittee for holding a hearing on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (PSU). MUFON is dedicated to the scientific study of UFOs and UAPs for the benefit of mankind. MUFON is the oldest such organization, having existed since 1969. As an organization, MUFON has long investigated UAP sightings and collected the critical data needed to educate the public about the UAP phenomenon. and its potential impact on society.

“I am thrilled that Congress is taking this crucial first step in releasing what is known,” said MUFON Executive Director David MacDonald. “Through our knowledge and our database of sightings, we know there are many unanswered questions. We hope that Congress and the Department of Defense will continue to be transparent with the American people. MUFON is ready to assist the government in any capacity.”

With over 10,000 reports per year, MUFON has a 92% rate of ability to explain sightings.

After being taboo for many years, discussions about UAPs are becoming mainstream. The May 17 hearing was the first congressional hearing since a 1969 push by then-Congressman Gerald Ford that led to an Air Force report and hearing. Prior to the hearing, MUFON spoke with numerous congressional officials, providing individuals with information and answers to questions they may have about UAPs. MUFON has always worked closely with Congress. For example, information from MUFON has been instrumental for years in helping the disclosure process unfold. Information from the MUFON database helped convince Harry Reid to seek funding for the AATIP program.

MUFON’s 1,100 volunteers nationwide and 46 international chapters with 4,600 members worldwide tuned in to watch the hearings this week. Now that the conversation about UAPs is mainstream, a greater collective bipartisan effort is needed to push for better legislation and more detailed information to be released to the public. MUFON stands ready to assist the federal government with UFO sightings and how best to collect and manage data from those sightings. More information can be viewed at
