Identification of Discreet Inertial Frame of Reference in Observations

of Unexplained Aerial Objects

By Self-Reporting Eyewitnesses 

The purpose of this study is to determine if there exists a dependent and correlating relationship between an observer and the observed in reports of Unexplained Aerial Objects sightings. The research hypothesis acts on the assumption that a certain number of Unexplained Aerial Objects sightings represent something materially substantial and cannot be explained as being a result of psychological manifestations. 

The Survey involves a series of questions and should take approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. The Survey will begin with questions related to the specific sighting details, followed by a series of personal perspective questions.
