somewhere in the skies: a human approach to the ufo phenomenon

​In this updated and expanded edition, Ryan Sprague revisits many, and introduces brand new stories of those who have seen extraordinary things in our skies and how these incredible events have changed them. While reports of UFOs and close encounters are littered with dates, times, and descriptions, they rarely focus on the people who’ve had the experience. Could both the positive and negative implications, whether subtle or revelatory, further our knowledge of what these phenomena represent?

Through detailed testimony from credible witnesses and insight from those in the psychological, academic, and scientific fields, Somewhere in the Skies: A Human Approach to the UFO Phenomenon weaves together a story of stories, attempting to get to the heart of these mysteries one experience at a time.

Sprague has looked at UFO reports from the human angle, explaining the impact these events have had on witnesses. This is an often overlooked dimension of the phenomenon and I thank him for addressing it.”

​- Leslie Kean, Author of the New York Times bestseller, UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record

“Sprague has a way of telling stories – with a style to his narratives that might remind readers of the cool, suave confidence of cigarette-smoking Rod Serling of Twilight Zone and Night Gallery fame. Somewhere in the Skies is a well-written, well thought-out, good read by a competent writer at the top of his game.” – Joseph Flammer, MUFON (Mutual UFO Network)

“Sprague’s ability to tell a story is addicting, and it brings us full circle to where many of us began when it comes to being interested in the UFO question; some whiskey and a conversation… Sprague’s work points us down a very familiar path; the fundamental aspects of the UFO question do not occur somewhere in the sky, but rather within humanity itself.” – MJ Banias, TERRA OBSCURA

​”Sprague has tapped into something ethereal, something otherworldly inside us all. Maybe all it takes to understand an alien phenomenon is indeed a human approach. Maybe all it takes to understand this external experience is internal reflection. If this is where UFO research and journalism is heading, the field is in good hands. And good hearts as well.” – Ryan Peverly, OCCULTURE

​”Somewhere in the Skies is one of the rare books that has something different to offer those of us who study the topic.
He asks the right questions at the right time, probing just beyond to try to understand the human factor
involved in the encounters he covers, and this is what makes his book stand out.” – David Weatherly, TWO CROWS PARANORMAL

​”Sprague’s optimism seems to spawn from a hope that, whatever the hell may be behind the UFO phenomenon, and the reasons behind its bizarre way to operate, it will nevertheless help us move forward in our collective and individual evolution.”
Red Pill Junkie, THE DAILY GRAIL

“Ryan offers a first-person perspective as detailed by the very real human beings who found their lives forever changed by what they experienced and the reactions they encountered upon telling their stories.” – Jazz Shaw,
