The following is a document describing a UFO survey by David Gordon, M.D. and his wife and I did in their medical practices in 1992. The purpose of the survey was to establish the veracity of UFO sighting and contact reports and to get a general idea aboutthe scope of the phenomenon. They wish to re-post this survey at this time because of recent inquiries about it.


There have been recent medical gatherings (1) and media publications (2,3,4) in which respected psychiatric professionals have supported the claims of people who say they were abducted by UFO's. Some of these people have been found to be suffering from a type of post-traumatic stress disorder (3). A recent Roper survey of over 5,000 people, whose results were mailed to 100,000 psychiatric professionals, found a 2 per cent potential UFO abduction rate in the general population (5). To discover the prevalence of both UFO abductions and sightings, and to establish the veracity and clinical relevance of these claims, I undertook a survey of my own HMO practice members.

One thousand fifty (1050) low acuity HMO members were asked in a serial fashion at the conclusion of their visit with me, if he or she, the member, "had ever seen a UFO". Members with known significant mental illness were excluded from the survey. If the member answered in the affirmative, a detailed sighting report, was taken of the time, place, and circumstances of the encounter. Members were asked to sketch the object if they had seen a structure to the object. Objects were counted as UFO's if they had structure or flight characteristics unknown to modern aircraft manufacturing and propulsion technology (I hold a commercial pilot's license). Examples of counted objects. were nocturnal lights exhibiting non-ballistic motion (sudden Z turns, impossible accelerations and decelerations ), flying and hovering discs, cigars, triangles, boomerangs, all of which were described as either silent or emitting a low humming noise.

Members who had seen a UFO were then asked specifically about contact with any entities associated with the object. They were asked about memory of abduction experience, unexplained missing time, or sudden translocation of physical position in association with their sighting.

The results were surprising. Out of 1050 HMO members surveyed, 115 (11%) reported having had seen a UFO by the criteria listed above. Only two had reported it to the authorities. Sixty (6%) of the objects had been close enough to be able to sketch structure. The other 55 (5%) objects had been nocturnal lights moving non-ballistically. Eight members (0.8% of the total surveyed population) related an involuntary UFO contact or abduction. four (0.4%) other members reported visual contact with UFO entities without abduction. Most of the members reporting objects or entities were known personally by me for several years and had no history of mental disturbance. Furthermore, medical records were available on all of these persons to confirm this.

If replicable by other health care professionals, the implications of these data are profound. They would imply that the phenomenon of contact with non-earth intelligence is not rare, is occurring in every health professional's patient pool, could potentially affect people's health, and is being kept secret by individuals until a special person in a position of trust and authority, i.e., their physician, directly asks them about their experience.

When I became aware of the results of my husband's survey of UFO sightings among his patients, I was surprised by the high numbers of sightings reported. I wanted to verify this for myself. If these results (11% of the population having sightings) could be reproduced by other physicians in their practices, this would confirm the widespread nature of the phenomenon, and avoid the bias of a single questioner.

I work as an allergist in the same large HMO as my husband, but at a separate office about 20 miles to the east. My practice includes both adults and children. In my survey, I questioned adults and children over 12 years old. I only questioned patients who were in the office for routine follow up visits, not new patients, and not those with acute problems who would not feel comfortable discussing the subject of UFO's. I also excluded anyone with a history of psychosis, or substance abuse, which would render them unreliable as witnesses. At the end of the office visit, I casually added the question, "Have you ever seen a UFO?" If a structured craft was reported, I would encourage the patient to draw it for me on a small notepad, and to describe the sighting as completely as possible. Only structured craft not resembling normal aircraft, and nonballistically moving lights were counted as UFO's.

A total of 485 patients were asked about UFO sightings. Forty-one (8.4%) gave a positive answer, excluding ambiguous sightings (possibly explainable as meteors, stars, conventional aircraft, et cetera). With multiple sightings in 3 cases, there was a total of 46 sightings. The objects seen by my patients included structured craft in 28 cases (61%): 17 discs (39%), 2 linear arrays of lights (4.3%), 2 cigar shaped craft (4.3%), and 6 miscellaneous- shaped objects (13%) including 2 ovoid craft, one tumip-shaped object, one flattened cylinder with a surrounding ring of lights, one crescent, one needle-like object, and one translucent "jellyfish-like' object, which moved alongside a truck on the Santa Ana Freeway in Los Angeles. Thirty-three per cent, or 15 of the objects seen were nonballistically moving nocturnal lights.

The dates of the sightings ranged from 1938 to 1993. Twenty-six of the sightings were reported in California (the state in which this survey took place), 14 in the rest of the United States, 2 in Baja California, and one each in Bolivia, Brazil and Fiji. Seven of the nonballistic nocturnal light sightings were reported in the Antelope Valley area of Southern California.

These occurred between 1980 and 1992. One patient, an aerospace engineer, said that what he saw was not possible with existing technology. Landed craft were seen by two patients. In 1963, one man was driving with his wife and children at night in the hills near Sunland, California, and saw a bright, flame-like blue light on the ground about one-half mile away. It took off abruptly at a 60-degree angle into the sky and vanished. The second patient was driving late at night in Arizona en route to Phoenix from California with her husband in 1951. They observed a landed disc-shaped object surrounded by light, just off the highway, and noticed many small-statured people walking around it.

They were too frightened to stop to observe the object for further detail. There was a case of a craft following a car in the Antelope Valley, in which there were many witnesses on the scene. The patient was driving with her husband on Sierra Highway one night in 1991, when they both saw a silent, radiant disc following their car. After several minutes, the craft turned sideways and shot directly upward, disappearing from view. Many other drivers had pulled to the side of the road to view the object.

The patient called the nearby Air Force Base and was told that there were no flights from the base that night, but that one other person had called them to report a UFO sighting.

In another case, two Navy jets were seen closely pursuing two metallic domed discs in the early afternoon, over Joshua Tree National Monument in 1958. The discs made a "buzzing sound, like high tension wires." Although I asked about "missing time" in all those cases in which structured craft were sighted, I had only one positive response. This was from a former travel agent in his fifties who was on a cruise off the coast of Fiji in October of 1981, when he had his sighting. From his cabin porthole at 2:00 AM, he saw a crescent-shaped, glowing, "gold-amber-pink" craft hovering over the water. The ends of the crescent pointed downwards toward the island.

After about an hour, the object dissolved from his view. The next morning, he awoke at 10:00 AM and went on deck. Three hours of missing time occurred then, and he found himself on an unfamiliar part of the ship. He later became intensely involved with several UFO investigation societies, and had several further UFO sightings on a trip to Brazil related to UFO investigation.

He later underwent hypnotic regression by a psychologist to whom he was referred by the late J. Allen Hynek. I was able to view a videotape of the regression, which revealed a story of "medical" examinations by large-eyed extraterrestial beings on board an unknown craft. Of interest, he commented later that he was more at ease with the beings on the craft than with the other tourists on the cruise boat, perhaps due to fear of ridicule.

Overall, it seems that UFO sightings are not that unusual in our patient population, even when respondents and their sightings are screened carefully. People are often hesitant to discuss such things in the open, but seem to be more at ease in the privacy of a doctor's office. It may be that the higher rates of sightings and "abduction"/missing time experiences reported to my husband than to me are due to his being the primary care doctor to his patients, while I am a consultant who sees most of the patients less frequently, or am less familiar to them.

At first, I expected that most people would laugh at or be embarrassed by my question about UFOS, but was surprised to find that most patients took the subject seriously. Many patients said that they believed that UFOs were extraterrestrial craft, or perhaps secret experimental military aircraft. Several suspected a government sponsored cover-up of the issue. I would most definitely recommend that other interested practicing physicians try a similar survey of their patient populations in different geographic areas and to publish their data for comparison.
