Define UFO (Rather) Specifically and Ufology Will Move Forward - UFO Contemplation

Rich Reynolds deals with the matter of delineating UFOs more clearly from a number of phenomena generally lumped in with them, arguing rightly that such would focus the efforts of researchers far better than trying to account for every "light in the sky" and appearances seen too far off for identification. One likely benefit: "tightening up" reporting systems that come up with "Unidentified Aerial Vehicle" for numerous photographs without much in the way of additional data. For example, the UFO Photographed by Hunter Boy. Absent probative photographic analysis, we'd set this one aside, particularly since this recent image from New South Wales, Australia's Hunter Region may have a prosaic explanation. Rich's criteria should be studied thoughtfully. (WM)
