Just hope when the cosmic ass-whooping comes there are some lifeboats with life jackets available!


We will be treated with the same mercy that we have shown
other species livging with us on Earth!


No one can dispute that wisdom, and also how we treated each other.

You could get into this for hours and like I said the maps are a good part of it. Though, I don’t get how to move around yet, like when one wants to quickly go from the first pages, let’s say in the earlier period to the modern era back and forth. But I’ll get it.

I've reformatted this slightly so the earliest dated cases appear from page 1 onwards. With the latest cases appearing on the last pages (which can be reserved using the sort arrows next to DATE in the header).

There are still a few discrepancies due to some dates in the original database being incomplete or unknown.

The SEARCH function is more of a filter than a true search function. So if you search 1999 then you would mainly see cases that occurred in 1999. But it will also filter on other fields that contain '1999'. Similarly, if you use a keyword like TURKEY then it will produce cases from the country TURKEY but also cases mentioning the word as well. If you try it, you'll see what I mean.

I’ve now managed to publish a compacted searchable version online here :

The U* UFO Database


This is really awesome, S&F! Having followed the previous threads about preserving Larry's database, I'm glad you managed to provide this solution, thus saving his legacy for all of us to use and enjoy...

Playing around with it a bit, I entered the term "SUB" to filter all events involving submersed UFOs. Here goes an excerpt with some seemingly similar objects highlighted:



It's interesting that, over the course of a couple of years, a similar object seems to have been witnessed in a geographically somewhat related area. And this is from the pre-1947 era. There are just two different sources for the highlighted cases, but still, it shows how quickly one can identify possible correlations using a database like this.

Again, thanks for this great effort, MM! Your work is highly appreciated, as always!

It wouldn't have been possible without the earlier attempts at saving the data going back a decade ago. But for whatever reasons it has never been given a user friendly interface.

I've now added a script to make it responsive on mobile devices and also added over 2,500 fully sourced UK MOD UFO reports onto the site.

That's also great, every additional resource is of course appreciated. Does that mean we can expect future updates with additional databases/catalogs?

I'm still hoping that someone might one day implement something like this, which would be a more visual database configuration. A visualization of the UI can be seen here.

Nonetheless, I think the revival of the Larry Hatch *U* Database is a fantastic accomplishment, providing some great tools for those interested in finding specific case details in the dataset.

What is the date range for this database? Starting and ending dates.

EDIT: I found the answer in the CSV file. According to the date range it begins at 593 BC and ends in 2003.

Is it (or could it be) updatable to include more sighting reports so the database can grow?



Edited to ad date range

In short, no.

I believe the original DOS version did have a facility for updating new cases. Although there was no interconnectivity over the web. So it would remain unique to each user.

Here the only objective was to reconstruct the U* database in a more user friendly form than has been available in the past decade. All at no cost for hosting or for end users and with little to no maintenance.

Plus, sites like NUFORCalready offers a facility for reporting UFOs, which is well established. So in a way it would also be reinventing the wheel

Maybe. But this all takes time.

I did look at using Google Maps to illustrate the U* Database visually. However, it's a tedious and laborious process when you have large numbers of records to display. Something like the Project Blue Book "unknowns" might be a more manageable task.
