UFO/UAP Research in the Northland

Who we are

This is a joint website between the Northland MUFON Chapter and the MN MUFON Chapter of The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).  By becoming a “Northland Insider” you will gain access to UFO/UAP content from both chapters (Northland and MN). This includes zoom links for both chapter meetings when available. Content on this website will include both chapters. The Northland MUFON chapter is a Federally recognized 501(C)3 Non-Profit Chapter that covers North Dakota and Northern Minnesota.


MUFON’s Case Management System

is Back up!

Go to www.MUFON.com to report a sighting, an experience, or submit photo’s or videos of your encounter. A local Field Investigator will be assigned your case. You should hear from someone within a few days of submitting your report. We often get cases from many years ago so don’t be shy. Let us know what you’ve seen or been through. We’ll investigate it and do our best to help you get the answers you seek.

We were upstairs in our sleeping area, which is like a loft with a hatch door, and I had my brother on top of the hatch door, and me and my other buddy were on top of him holding that hatch door, because whatever was down there was just beating up on everything and slamming on that hatch door trying to get up there.

The Annual MUFON Symposium is being held in Dallas this year. We are excited to go, meet us there! Click here for more information!

Report a Sighting

Have you seen aerial phenomenon you can’t explain? Many of us at one time or another have seen something unusual in the sky that defies explanation. Often times these anomalous encounters can be accounted for by ordinary terrestrial objects. Nonetheless, there are times when individuals are convinced by the aberrant nature of what they have seen to believe they may have spotted something extraordinary.

If you’ve witnessed something you believe to be unidentified aerial phenomenon, MUFON would like to hear from you! Click the button below to file a report with MUFON international.

Become a Field Investigator

Expert field investigation is at the forefront of MUFON’s purpose. Seeking to separate the explainable from the enigmatic, highly trained and qualified field investigators are needed to investigate UFO reports. With UFO sightings on the rise, the role of a trained investigator has become more important than ever.

If you’re at least 18 years old, are able to acceptably pass a personal background check, and be willing to execute and agree to a MUFON non-disclosure agreement, you can apply to become a MUFON field investigator.
