The National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC) is an organization in the United States that investigates UFO sightings and/or alien contacts. NUFORC has been in continuous operation since 1974. It was founded in 1974 by Robert J. Gribble.[1] Until 2006, the Center was based in Seattle, Washington, but has relocated to a more spacious facility in rural Davenport, Washington.


The Center provides a hotline phone number for people to report UFO activity that is currently going on in their area. Reportees may also write or e-mail the organization to report a recent or old UFO sighting. NUFORC is also often the first place that police departments refer members of the public who are witness to unusual aerial phenomena. The Center also regularly receives many reports from aircraft pilots, members of the military and police officers.

Peter Davenport, a businessman holding degrees from Stanford University and the University of Washington at Seattle, has served as director of the organization since July 1994.


The National UFO Reporting Center has been discussed on the radio show Coast To Coast AM [2] and on Jeff Rense's radio show .
