MUFON is an international scientific organization composed of people seriously interested in studying and researching the phenomenon known as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) by combining their mutual talents, areas of expertise and investigative efforts.
Founded on May 31, 1969 in Seguin, Texas, MUFON's phenomenal success may be attributed to the "grass roots" nature of the organization, in which a majority of the leadership and motivation is achieved at the local level. In North America, a State or Provincial Director oversees the investigative activities of the Field Investigators through State Section Directors.
Mufon San Antonio, in addition to its claim-to-fame of having a founding member of MUFON , Mr. Walter Andrus Jr. as an active member, is one of the oldest consistently meeting Mufon groups in the Mufon International Network.
Mufon San Antonio recognizes that in order to be an active group it must not only have a presence in the community, but provide a “service” to that community.
To that end, Mufon San Antonio is making every effort to be a Resource for San Antonio. This group understands the stigma and confusion that often results from an unknown sighting, not to mention the lack of awareness on the best practice procedure of effectively reporting observations. Mufon San Antonio is here to help navigate these challenges for their community.
Our San Antonio group (as is with most MUFON groups) is an eclectic collection of professionals, interested public members, and those willing to meet with open minds. Monthly meetings tend to focus on specific topics, visitor stories, open discussions, and local observations. If you have an interest, a sighting, or would just like to learn more, please feel welcome to attend. Naturally, anonymity is respected.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
We invite you to read more about a truly remarkable founding member of Mufon.
