UFOlogy is a neologism, which simply means 'a new word that is coined to describe a collective thought.' In that sense, UFOlogy is a neologism that identifies the efforts of those who study what is known as a a 'UFO, or an unidentified flying object.' Many create reports from their associated evidence, while others are simply interested in the subject matter. Although UFOlogy does not now represent any known academic research program, UFOs have often been the subject of various investigative groups like MUFON (Mutual UFO Network) over the years, all  varying in scope and a few even attempting to apply scientific conventions to their hypothesis. Many governments of the western world, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, and the Soviet Union have at one time or another been known to have investigated UFO sightings covertly. Yet these governments rarely, if ever, have officially and publicly asserted that UFOs represent a known or an alleged form of alien or extraterrestrial intelligence. However, several of these governments have acknowledged or displayed, at one time or another, an interest in the UFO phenomena. One of the best known programs was 'Project Blue Book,'  (previously Project Sign and Project Grudge were all covert investigative organizations that were operated by the United States Air Force (1947 - 1969). Other notable investigative projects include covert operations with the United Kingdome under the Ministry of Defence (MoD), the Robertson Panel (1953), the Brookings Report (1960), the Condon Committee (1966-1968), the Project Twinkle investigation into green fireballs (1948-1951), the Sturrock Panel (1998), and the French GEIPAN (1977-) and COMETA (1996-1999) study groups. To this date, UFOlogy has never been fully embraced by mainstream academia as an official scientific field of study. Yet it has been the subject of large scale scientific studies that produced reports described on the following pages.  As of now, there is still no way, to the best of our knowledge for anyone to obtain a degree in 'UFOlogy,' from any accredited college or university, although there have been a few college or university courses that have covered the subject, but often entitled and presented from a folklore perspective.
