UFO Magazine is an American magazine that is devoted to the subject of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), the extraterrestrial hypothesis (ETH), as well as paranormal and Fortean subjects in general. It was founded in 1986 by Vicki Ecker and Sherie Stark, and is now published by Bill Birnes and edited by his wife, Nancy Hayfield Birnes. It is one of the few magazines in print primarily devoted to the UFO phenomena.
With the term "UFO" trademarked in 1998, UFO Magazine was initially published quarterly, then monthly, then bi-monthly, then erratically for several years. In June 2013 it changed to a primarily digital format, intended to be published monthly.
UFO Magazine is published in the United States and has covered every major breaking UFO story from the disclosure that a Soviet Spacecraft had encountered a UFO, to the Apollo Astronauts' accounts of an alien presence on the Moon. It features columnists such as Stanton T. Friedman, Nick Redfern, Larry Bryant, George Noory, and Colin Bennett, and includes writers such as Ann Druffel, Nigel Watson, and Jaime Maussan. UFO Magazine broke the story of Lieutenant Colonel Philip J. Corso's revelations about his involvement in the research of extraterrestrial technology recovered from the 1947 Roswell UFO Incident. It also broke the story of Lieutenant Colonel Marion M. Magruder's handling of the Roswell crash debris and face-to-face meeting with the Roswell alien; as well as Colonel, Dr. Jesse Marcel, Jr., M.D.'s story of the night his father brought the Roswell debris back to his home before taking it to the Roswell Army Air Field.
