UFO Researcher

Dr. J. Allen Hynek

Dr. Josef Allen Hynek (May 1, 1910 - April 27, 1986) was an American astronomer, professor, and ufologist.[1] He is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research. Hynek acted as scientific advisor to UFO studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force under three consecutive projects: Project Sign (1947-1949), Project Grudge (1949-1952), and Project Blue Book (1952-1969).

In later years he conducted his own independent UFO research, developing the "Close Encounter" classification system. He is widely considered[by whom?] the father of the concept of scientific analysis both of reports and especially of trace evidence purportedly left by UFOs
