Bob Pratt

Bob Pratt, a great UFO researcher and a good friend, died last Saturday 19

This is a very sad note. The distinguished American writer, UFO researcher and journalist Bob Pratt is no longer between us. He served as co-author of Night Siege: The Hudson Valley UFO Sightings, with J. Allen Hynek, and was the author of UFO Danger in Brazil, translated and published here as Perigo Alienígena no Brasil.

It is very probable that no other foreign UFO researcher had more knowledge about the Brazilian Ufology as Bob Pratt. He has been 13 times in the country and is that kind of field investigator that really goes deep where the facts are to be researched. He helped a lot the Brazilian UFO researchers to best evaluate the dramatic incidents of alien attacks in the Northeast of the country and in the Amazon.

Bob had his interest by the UFO Phenomena begun when working for the National Enquirer, and was sent to many countries to investigate UFO sightings and ET contacts, such as Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Japan, Mexico, Peru e Puerto Rico. Since 1975, he interviewed over 2 thousand witnesses, many of them in Brazil. His death is a great loss for the worldwide Ufology.

Bob wrote articles for several UFO and non-UFO magazines. He was for several years the editor of the renowned Mufon UFO Journal. Last Friday, Bob had a heart stroke and by Saturday, he was dead. There will be a memorial service on Friday afternoon at his town, Lake Worth, Florida.

Good bye, my friend. Wherever you are, you will be much closer to the answers you pursued here on Earth.

-- A. J. Gevaerd, editor Brazilian UFO Magazine
