As noted in Part 3 of Isaac Koi’s “Best UFO Cases” article (i.e. in the Part entitled “Existing lists by various individuals”), Jacques Vallee has referred to the data of “our circumspect ‘Invisible College’ (a network of scientists who are privately investigating the mystery)” as being “probably the most detailed and best-investigated set of UFO cases ever selected”. Unfortunately, he failed to indicate the relevant selection of cases (see Footnote 3.50).

In another of his books, Jacques Vallee indicated that he considered that “The Valensole case is the best-authenticated close encounter incident in continental Europe” (see Footnote 3.51 and Case 22 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article).

It may be possible to draw inferences as to Jacques Vallee’s views on the “best” cases from some comments he made in a yet further book. He has complained that many ufologists confuse “the most publicized cases” with “the most convincing”. In particular, he has complained that the following cases “seem to be totally unknown” (see Footnote 3.52, and see also the discussion in Part 5 of this article), possibly indicating that he considered that these cases are among the most convincing:

(1) the Kelly landing,
(2) the Bismarck case,
(3) the Walesville incident (Case 92 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article),
(4) the Loch Raven Dam (Case 100 in Isaac Koi's “Top 100” article).

Web Resources

There is a rapid turnover of UFO material on the Internet. Many links to material on UFO websites quickly become out of date. Therefore, instead of giving many links to specific webpages I have instead included below a search box which can be used to search various leading UFO websites at the same time. You can then click on tabs at the top of the search results to list only results from forums, only results from websites I have labelled as "skeptical" etc. I have included tabs for a couple of specific websites that I find particularly useful, including the valuable archives of the UFO UpDates email discussion List. The relevant websites are all listed in the discussion of the "UFO Searchillion" search engine in Section 2.4 of the "Free UFO Researcher Starter Pack" and continues to evolve...

 

The relevant search box is one of the two main tools on this website which are intended to help reduce the amount of reinvention of the wheel within UFOlogy. The other main tool is the collection of tables of references to discussion of UFO incidents, personalities and other matters in various books. Those tables can be sorted by author, length and date. I hope these tools are useful.
