Illinois MUFON is a Cooperating State Chapter of one of the oldest, largest and respected civilian based all voluntary non-profit UFO Research Organization in the world, that being the
Mutual UFO Network, MUFON International Inc..
Founded in Quincy, Illinois back in August of 1969 as "the Midwest UFO Network" whose membership was mainly located in Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin. It wasn't long before membership had grown well outside the scope of the Midwest. The name was change to reflect its growing scope of operation and membership.
MUFON International details can be found at www.mufon.com (http://www.mufon.com/) Please become a Subscriber Member You'll receive a monthly journal packed with valuable information putting you in the know on UFO related news and research. You may also want to become a MUFON Field Investigator furthering your quest on this most interesting subject. There is also a need for consultants and experts in both science and technology who may be interested in volunteering their time and talents.
Either way your support is both appreciated and needed find more information at http://www.mufon.com
As a State Chapter we aim to assist in fulfilling the mission of MUFON : "The Scientific Investigation of the UFO phenomena for the Benefit of Humanity". We accommodate that quest locally mainly through Public Awareness and Field Investigative Research.
Illinois MUFON with other State and local chapters also work with other independent cooperating groups to offer quarterly meetings & presentations which will be announced on the site as well as emailed to our meetup members.
