Jeff Ritzmann

has been actively involved in UFO research for over 20 years. His involvement is a personal one; numerous odd events in his life from age 5 on prompted him to explore the paranormal and UFOs. In an effort to learn more, he has applied his work as a digital imaging professional to intriguing UFO photos and video and has become a recognized image analyst in the UFO field. He was the primary image analyst in the O’Hare UFO case, and is cited in the NARCAP report of the event for his work. Jeff has also worked on landing trace cases, and “experiencer” support investigations.

In the early days of the internet, he was the official chat host on AOL for Sightings and he founded the first internet-based experiencer support group (AES) through AOL’s “Parascope,” where he was the UFO-related chat host after Sightings closed it’s operations on the service.

Working with, the largest alternative topics message board community, Jeff has examined multiple UFO cases as their image analyst. His experiences with the UFO phenomena continue to present day. He now hosts Paranormal Waypoint, a weekly live internet radio program.

    Is there a digital archive of Paratopia Magazine that I can consult? Am particularly interested in the issue (in 2011 I believe) in which Carol Vainer questioned aspects of Budd Hopkins’ story. Thanks.
