Update of the Catalogue of UFOs/USOs Reported by Seagoing
Services - NavCat 2.0
The US Air Force connection with the issue
of UFOs is widely known. The public is less aware
of the US Navy's involvement in the managing and
reporting of UFO and USO incidents.
Jan Aldrich has produced a revised Catalogue of UFO/USO
cases with over one hundred updated and enhanced cases,
along with over one hundred new cases. Map locations,
links to articles and many photographs help to
illustrate the scope and nature of these reports.
This remains a work in progress and Jan welcomes any
comments or additions.

First Update of the Catalogue of UFOs/USOs Reported by Seagoing
Keith has produced many valuable catalogues and investigations, the latest being
a collaboration with researcher Paul Dean into the famous 1953 T. P. Drury UFO
At about noon on 23 August 1953, Mr T. P. Dury, the Deputy Director of the
Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) in Papua New Guinea, then an
Australian territory, took daylight movie footage of an extraordinary
unidentified "missile" over Port Moresby. The UFO was gone in a few seconds
but the story of the official handling of the filmed evidence lives on
as an enduring part of the UFO mystery.
Keith Basterfield and Paul Dean undertake
a "Cold Case Review" of this incident and subsequent
investigations utilizing a detailed chronology of events and
expanded collections of detailed public and previously classified
The Cold Case Review Of The 23 August 1953, Port Morseby Visual Sighting And Colour Movie Film.
In this two-part collaboration with researcher Paul Dean, Keith examines the circumstances and analysis of the well-known April 2nd, 1966, Balwyn, Victoria, UFO photograph:

Following on from the research undertaken by Keith Basterfield and Paul Dean
into the well-known April 2nd, 1966, Balwyn, Victoria, UFO photograph,
Canadian researcher, Francois Beaulieu, re-evaluates some
previously held theories and offers new insights into authenticating
Keith believes Francois has prepared an extensive and very interesting article
which is another example of the continuing investigation into the incident:

Keith also has his own website where you can keep up-to-date with
his latest research:
Paul Dean's website is regularly updated with his own extensive research
(Keith has decided to integrate future updates for certain categories
of events into his catalogue of "The More Interesting Australian UFO
Reports." Some of his older catalogues have been retired to
assist in this process.
Keith has recently updated his popular Catalogue of the More Interesting
Australian UAP Reports
. He has included some new cases; checked sources for

Jan Aldrich updates some cases in Dominique Weinstein's
ACUFOE catalogue with these new
Dominique Weinstein's Aircraft/UFO Encounters catalogue remains the best source of UFO sightings by
pilots and aircraft crewmembers. Long-admired and respected
by UFO researchers world-wide, an updated version of this catalogue will
soon be available to the public. This online version of Dominique's
ACUFOE provides only a small sample of the actual material
he has compiled, and the limitations of HTML don't really do justice to the
layout and utility of the printed version.
