Josef Allen Hynek (May 1, 1910 – April 27, 1986) was an American astronomer, professor, and ufologist. He is perhaps best remembered for his UFO research. Hynek acted as scientific advisor to UFO studies undertaken by the U.S. Air Force under two projects: Project Sign (1947–1949), Project Grudge (1949-1952), and Project Blue Book (1952–1969).

In later years he conducted his own independent UFO research, developing the "Close Encounter" classification system. He was among the first people to conduct scientific analysis of reports and especially of trace evidence purportedly left by UFOs.

In 1985-86, the last year of his life, Ann Eller was the personal assistant to the Dr. Hynek. Her role was to comfort ordinary people who had experiences with extra-terrestrials. Informing them that not only where they not crazy, but that they were not alone.

Ann has had her own extraordinary experiences with alien visitors. In her book, she tells about her astonishing experiences, message from the stars, and her appeal to all for higher consciousness and UFO disclosure.
