Outline The effort to compile local reports of unidentified flying object (UFO) & its related phenomena is actually nothing new in the development of Indonesia’s ufology. the general analysis provided here will hopefully be able to function as a basis for future studies. 'Menyingkap Rahasia Piring Terbang' (Unveiling the Flying Saucer's Secret) published in 1960. This is a rudimentary and non-exhaustive report done with limited resources – particularly time. as rudimentary as it is. The major aim of the analysis is to provide a general outlook of the data that can function as a stepping stone for more detailed studies in the future.
