Subject: Project FOTOCAT News/November 2002

This is a brief report on recent FOTOCAT news.

FOTOCAT is a project of the Spanish Anomaly Foundation


to build a worldwide catalog of UFO photographic cases with
2,700 entries, to be posted on the internet at a later stage. By
its own nature, international cooperation is basic. These are
some of the latest major examples of such assistance we have

* Mr Anders Liljegren, from the Swedish organization Archives
for UFO Research, has supplied us with a catalog of 200 cases
from Sweden where photo, film or video has been obtained.

* Photographic results from the EMBLA 2002 expedition to
Hessdalen (Norway) have been graciously contributed thanks to Dr
Massimo Teodorani, Italy.

* Veteran Polish ufologist Mr Bronislaw Rzepecki has provided a
specially-prepared catalog of 65 UFO cases with pictures or
videos having been reported in Poland, from 1957 to 2001.

* The well-known US researcher Mr Richard Heiden is helping
FOTOCAT in a very sensibly way: Rich has agreed to review the
complete collections of both The APRO Bulletin and The UFO
Investigator, from defunct organizations APRO and NICAP, to
submit in xeroxcopy form every information related to a
photographic UFO/IFO event. It will certainly add many cases and
actual documentation to the present photo archives.

* A Catalogue of Australian Photographic UFO Reports with 118
incidents from 1935 to 2002 has been prepared by the stupendous
researcher from down under, Mr Keith Basterfield. Its contents
add significantly to the known records from Australia and

* CEFAA, the official Civil Aviation organization from Chile
charged by the Government with the responsability to study the
UFO phenomenon is helping FOTOCAT as well. Mr Gustavo Rodr=EDguez,
CEFAA=B4s executive secretary, is providing us with photographic
and video records. With a prior cooperation of Diego Z=FAniga,
editor of "La Nave de los Locos" journal, the picture FOTOCAT
has of the UFO phenomenon in Chile is now outstanding.

FOTOCAT is requesting to investigators and organizations alike
to submit us lists of local photographic cases, with the
following information (just one line per case, any other
information -case abstract or images are optional): Date. Format
(still, film or video). Photographer=B4s name. Location.
Explanation (if there is one)

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
