Since the inception of this blog in 2009, it has provided much information, including on the contents of Australian government UAP files; the UAP interests of employees of aerospace companies; Australian sightings; and details of the findings of numerous global UAP researchers. In particular, it has focussed on what is known about AAWSAP, AATIP and BAASS. Todate, the blog has published 1,238 individual posts, ranging in length from 100 to 10,000 words. However, blog posts take time to prepare. Firstly, there is a need to research a topic of interest, and then time to write, and edit each blog post, hoping to produce an informative and factual article.
Over time, other aspects of my own UAP interest have been neglected, in order to keep publishing blog posts. Today, keeping across the wealth of information about UAP coming in through various inputs, is simply beyond one individual's available time; a complaint I hear many of my Australian colleagues making.
So, after 13 years, I have now decided it is the right time, to re-focus my available time on some of these other aspects. For example, I want to make time to go through my extensive electronic files on Australian sightings, such as Westall (1966); Valentich (1978); and Mundrabilla (1988) plus more recent events. I want to make time to review classic global UAP cases, for which we have various bits of unexplored data. I intend to then share these files with other interested researchers. In addition, I will take time to carefully and slowly re-read/listen to, a number of books; article, podcasts; and other blogs, taking more than the superficial glance which so many of them originally received. Most importantly, there is a need to simply spend time thinking about the topic, away from the distraction of time sensitive blog posting.
So, effective immediately, I will be closing the blog to new posts; although, naturally the existing blog posts will remain accessible to readers. I wish to thank both long-term, and more recent, blog readers for their support; and hope that you will understand my decision. I am not certain when I will return to blogging, as these other aspects of the subject will be time consuming in their own way.
Understandable Keith. Thank you for your work in publishing this blog.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much for the articles you have posted. They have been and continue to be a great contribution to our knowledge on this topic. You are a careful and thorough researcher, and one of the best on this topic in my humble opinion. I look forward to the great research I know you will continue to do.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your efforts Kieth, your research into this topic is pretty much unmatched, and I very much look forward to reading your Australian sightings, such as Westall ,Valentich and Mundrabilla👌👍🏼ReplyDelete
Thank you, Keith Basterfield, for your outstanding contributions to serious UAP research!ReplyDelete
Having been reading from afar I completely echo thatDelete
Thank you Keith, and good luck. I am having a similar step-back and deep think about archaeological evidence which indicates that the history of our planet is absolutely not what we are led to believe.ReplyDelete
Hi Keith sad to hear. This is one of the best blogs on UAP out there. Always thoroughly researched. But given how much time it takes I know it can be impossible to keep up. Thank you for all your contributions here and behind the scenes. I know some of those cases need some new eyes to review all the materials. Looking forward to your next presentation.ReplyDelete
Thank you Keith for your service to the UFO research community here in Australia and beyond. Wishing you the best for your next chapter in this adventure. Cheers from Canberra, Shane.ReplyDelete
Thank you Keith for all the hard work, it is appreciated. I wonder if you or your readers could suggest any other contemporary UFO/UAP research blogs that actively post things about current events, I would love to keep myself informed.ReplyDelete
Your work is greatly appreciated. I'm sure we'll see you again :)ReplyDelete
