Submitting Graphics :

A photograph or video of the object is the most useful form of evidence in any sighting. Absent a photograph, an illustration of the object observed, even a simple outline drawing of its shape is very helpful. Also, a photocopy of an official map, indicating where the observers were located and what direction(s) they were looking is extremely helpful, and will permit a calculation of latitude and longitude. If you can provide such materials, please mail them to us at :
