UFO Sightings

June 07, 1992

In "UFOs Are Real--in Our National Psyche" (Commentary, May 27), Prof. Laurence Goldstein suggests that UFOs are not cosmic but psychic disturbances that coincide with social and economic trouble, the end of the Cold War and the millennium, and the concept of saviors who will solve all our problems. But according to the Mufon UFO Journal of May, 1992, France in 1990 experienced the greatest UFO flap or multiple sightings by well-qualified observers since the wave of 1954. Most of these sightings of brilliant objects have been largely unpublished and are unknown to the reading public. Starting in November, 1989, Belgium has had over 3,500 UFO sightings by highly credible witnesses who live in heavily populated areas. All of this doesn't include the hundreds of sightings and photographs taken by witnesses in Gulf Breeze, Fla., starting in November, 1987, and extending up through the spring of 1992.

It is true that isolated reports of the UFOs do appear on TV programs and in magazines and newspapers. But on the whole, the public doesn't grasp the phenomenal worldwide extent of the UFO sightings over other nations of the world and over America. But Goldstein is right when he urges readers to "keep watching the skies!"
