Brad Sparks

Brad Sparks is a ufological researcher of high standing. He is a leading expert on the CIA Robertson Panel and the history of the CIA investigation of UFOs. He was the first researcher to discover that the Director of the CIA had been briefed on UFOs, the first to obtain the release of the CIA Director's UFO briefing memos, and the first to obtain the release of the complete, uncensored and declassified CIA Robertson Panel report and Minutes, as well as many other important CIA documents, some of which have never been released again to the public.

Ufological Involvement

Sparks was co-founder of Citizens Against UFO Secrecy (CAUS) and principal consultant in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits managed by CAUS against the CIA and NSA. He served as the assistant research director of the Aerial Phenomena Research Organization (APRO), founded by the late Coral and Jim Lorenzen, for APRO's last decade until 1988. He is also co-founder of BlueBookArchive.org which is putting online on the Web the entire U.S. Air Force Project Blue Book files, which he considers the best collection of publicly available UFO evidence in existence. He has produced the ongoing work-in-progress the Comprehensive Catalog of 1,500 Project Blue Book Unknowns,which is available on the NICAP, CUFOS, NIDS and other websites. He is a Research Associate of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP) founded by Dr. Richard Haines, and is a MUFON member and consultant to the MUFON director.

Following a stint working at NASA-Ames, Sparks investigated astronaut UFO cases, including interviewing Skylab-3 astronaut Dr. Owen Garriott shortly after his return to earth. He conclusively refuted the official skeptical explanation for the Gemini 11 case, but recently found an explanation for this longstanding unexplained incident as well as explanations for the Apollo 11 and 12 incidents. However, Skylab-3 remains a mystery with the color photos and optical ranging yielding an approximate 800-foot size of the space UFO, much larger than the largest satellite then in space (the 150-foot Skylab-3).

Sparks has also worked on photographic and optical analysis of UFO cases. In cooperation with optical physicist Dr. Bruce Maccabee, he investigated the McMinnville UFO photos. Based on his Lockheed training in radar systems, he has also worked with radar physicist Gordon Thayer and other scientists on analysis of the Lakenheath-Bentwaters AFB radar-visual sightings of UFOs, the RB-47 electronic intelligence UFO case, and other radar and electromagnetic cases.

Sparks has been a lifelong skeptic of Roswell and the ETH (Extraterrestrial Hypothesis for UFOs), although he remains open to new evidence. For example, in 2000 (while working on non-UFO-related research), he accidentally discovered the TOP SECRET U.S. government policy response to Roswell, which should not exist if Roswell was essentially a non-event as he had long believed. He also has moved on from his belief in the "Mogul balloon" explanation for Roswell, after discovering that the supposed Mogul balloon flight path was a fabrication. He worked with Dr. David Rudiak in plotting the correct probable balloon path, which passed nowhere near the Roswell Debris Field.

Media Work

Sparks was the principal consultant for the Best Evidence: Top 10 UFO Sightings television and DVD documentary produced by Redstar Films, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, in 2005 (released worldwide 2007).
