Provides historical and real-time flight tracking information. It provides data on flights, allowing users to access past flight information, routes, and details. It is a valuable resource for tracking and analyzing aviation activity.


Provides a databank of UFO sighting reports. Users can access and explore a vast collection of documented UFO sightings, enabling them to compare and analyze these reports in relation to cases investigated by MUFON.



Provides a simple and convenient way to obtain latitude and longitude coordinates for any location

Google Earth:

Access to satellite imagery, 3D views, and geographic data, along with longitude, latitude, and a compass for navigation purposes. It is particularly valuable for recreating a witness's perspective or viewpoint by using the "street view" feature, which allows for a visual representation of the observed location and aiding in the analysis of the surrounding environment.


Allows users to search and access information about various law enforcement agencies and organizations. The directory offers details such as agency names, locations, contact information, and links to their respective websites.


a convenient tool to find the nearest airports to a given location. By entering a city, state, or address, users can quickly access a list of airports in the vicinity, along with the distances and driving directions. Easy to copy and paste the results into the CMS.

UTC (Zulu) Time Conversion Chart:

Offers a UTC chart showcasing the current time in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) for different global locations. It serves as a useful resource to compare reported sighting times with the corresponding UTC times commonly used in flight schedules. This allows for easy reference and alignment of time frames, aiding in the analysis of reported sightings in relation to aviation schedules.


Nautical Data:


Vessel tracking and maritime information for investigative purposes, including monitoring and analyzing activities related to Unidentified Submersible Objects (USOs) reports.


Photo & Video:

Adobe Photoshop:

Photo editing software offering powerful image analysis, manipulation, and precise measurements. With tools like histogram analysis and content-aware fill, it is widely used for detailed photo analysis and enhancement. Free trial available.

Adobe Premier Pro:

Video editing software with advanced tools for video analysis, color correction, visual effects, and overall video enhancement. It is widely used for video analysis and post-production. Free trial available.

EXIF Tools:

Online tool for working with Exif data. It offers convenient options to view, extract, and manipulate Exif data such as camera settings, date and time of capture, and GPS coordinates, which can be utilized for analysis, verification, and contextual understanding.


Allows users to combine two images into one. This tool can be beneficial for investigating UFO phenomena in various ways. Investigators can use it to compare a known object, such as an airplane or satellite, with a reported unknown object by merging the two images. Additionally, it can be utilized alongside a witness's photo or video to overlay it with objects from resources like Stellarium or Google Earth, aiding in the analysis and identification of potential matches or discrepancies.
