About API

image027-300x282API is a worldwide UFO investigations team about the scientific investigation of unidentified aerial phenomena (also known as UAPs or UFOs). This team is about educating the public about UFOs and sharing Aerial Phenomena Investigation’s efforts to investigate and study the phenomena. For API, it’s not about confirmation of either true belief or dogmatic denial. We want to collaborate with like-minded groups to study these phenomena better, more openly and more thoroughly than has been done before. We don’t have all the answers, and neither does anyone else. That is why we investigate.

For the most part we are skeptical, but we don’t set out to debunk or belittle. It’s all about investigating the phenomena appropriately, and following the evidence where it leads without jumping to conclusions. We’re willing to admit when we’re stumped, and we’re able to take down bogus claims when a thorough investigation leads to conclude that claim is, in fact, bogus. But more importantly, we aim to educate, and to assist the public to understand the experiences they report to us.
