(ORDO NEWS) — GEIPAN Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena Research and Information Group has been investigating UFOs for the past 45 years. GEIPAN was founded in France in 1977.
The researchers were invited by NASA to present their work to a newly formed independent group that will develop methods to analyze unusual phenomena observed in the sky.
Simple explanations can be found for more than 60% of these phenomena – usually paper lanterns, balloons, airplanes, satellites, meteorites, stars, and so on.
Although these events may seem trivial, it is important to remember that each of these observations has some noteworthy aspect.
GEIPAN collects 700 eyewitness reports annually, of which 150-200 require investigation.
Reasonable explanations have been found for about two-thirds of the observed phenomena, but the remaining third remains unresolved due to lack of information for analysis and explanation.
In about 3% of cases, an explanation was not found, despite the fact that there was enough information.
The purpose of GEIPAN is clear: to provide a rational explanation for the unusual events seen by witnesses.
Each mission begins with a request that includes specific human-witnessed data. The following is an eyewitness account. The GEIPAN database is then used along with many technical applications.
Sometimes field work is also carried out, which makes it possible to more accurately analyze the conditions of observation and conduct an interview with an eyewitness.
The purpose of these interviews is to concretize the story, revealing the most reliable information possible, without distorting it.
In the most difficult cases, a multidisciplinary panel of experts is convened to help move the study forward and collectively decide on its completion.
Working alongside independent NASA experts in the coming months, GEIPAN will detail its methods and share data.
This will allow both groups to investigate phenomena that defy easy explanation, study the airborne hazards associated with them, and make recommendations for future research.
