Welcome to the
website of the British UFO Research Association, formed in 1962 and one of the
oldest and consistently active research and investigation groups in the world.
Formed originally from an amalgamation of regional UFO
societies and individuals, our subject encompasses history, archives,
investigations and research and is well known across the U.K. and also
internationally. BUFORA works with other organisations which share a similar ethos
and approach to investigations and research. We seek the facts through a
scientific and factually evaluative approach and our fully trained team of
investigators are required to pass a thorough course in all types of sightings,
whether it is lights in the sky, vehicle effects or high strangeness cases.
BUFORA work entirely on a voluntary basis. Please take the time to make a donation to us. Any amount would be much appreciated, it would enable us to carry on with our unbiased UFO investigation work and also help towards the costs of organising periodic high quality conferences.
If you have a sighting report, please click on the banner to
your left and we guarantee witness confidentiality in all cases. There is a
selection of reports we have already completed recently to observe on these
pages, in addition to 50 years of preserved printed magazines from when we
first started over half a century ago.
BUFORA has returned to staging conferences in
locations in the U.K. one was held in Newcastle entitled “UFOs-The
Mysteries, Myths and Rumours” in 2011. Our last major conference marked our
50th Anniversary, it was held in Central London on the 22nd & 23rd

We have research specialists in many overlapping fields of
study from specific cases or UFO effects, spirituality, media influence, the
wider paranormal and crop circles. BUFORA prides itself on investigating in a
scientifically factual approach in the research of the physics of the universe
and how this effects time, traveling distances and other dimensions, chemistry
and propulsion. Psychology and how cases can be influenced and affected by
belief systems and wider agendas are explored.
Some cases have been published in our magazine archives and
the more recent investigations are on our webpages. These are only released
where the case witnesses give the appropriate level of confidentiality they are
If you like what you see here and you are interested in a
balanced perspective in the investigations and research areas of this subject,
please feel free to contact the team with a view to participation we positively
encourage participation in the investigations course, although this is only
compulsory if directly investigating cases that come into BUFORA. We also have
members and associates that undertake many vital roles that do not require this
course and they are involved in direct research of events, media, graphics and
BUFORA welcomes guest articles from other investigators and
researchers, which do not always have to strictly follow our own viewpoint and
principals of research..
