Ufology is alive and well in the United States and the field appears to be fast growing along with strong growth in witness testimony, according to statistics compiled through early November 2012 with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
A November 4, 2012, story published in The Telegraph was one of several media outlets reporting on a statement made by Dave Wood, chairman of the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena (ASSAP). Wood said a meeting had been called to address a crisis in the UFO subject to consider whether or not the subject was “a thing of the past.”
Wood cites UFO groups who have gone under and a decline in interest and reports on UFOs.
Reached at his Cincinnati headquarters office today, MUFON Executive Director David MacDonald said ufology was alive and well.
This is in contrast with the UK where UFO sightings have declined.
