Anomalies Research Society

Evidence-based investigation of paranormal claims and anomalies


quoteThe Anomalies Research Society is a network of experienced researchers of diverse backgrounds who investigate paranormal and anomalous claims.

Not your typical ghost hunting group…

Started by a geologist and photographer, we provide a unique objective evaluation of paranormal and anomalous events and claims – hauntings, ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot or other mystery animals, natural anomalies, and strange events. We do this by first establishing the validity of the claim through examination and fact-checking, consulting with professionals, and documenting the cases for the purposes of education and public understanding. We follow procedures of sound ethics, fair evaluation of evidence and peer review. Members take very seriously the role of paranormal belief in society and understand that personal experiences perceived as paranormal are emotional and frightening. We aim to do our best to reach scientifically sound conclusions regarding extraordinary claims.

ARS is based in Pennsylvania and is available for field work in PA and surrounding states. Consultation is available for any case worldwide. ARS is not currently accepting members. Media requests are accepted.
