American Meteor Society: See meteor records here:

 Stellarium: Observe the night skies and see what was visible at the time a UFO was sighted.

MADAR (Multiple Anomaly Detection and Automatic Recording): Check your sighting reports against MADARdata to see if there is a hit at the same time. 

Also buy a MADAR unit here to put in your house. The Quantum Vacuum (QED vacuum) is being changed as the Craft enter our Space/TIme. This magnetic effect is measurable. Space/Time (Quantum Vacuum) displaced by the Field Emitters on the Craft. The MADAR devices are measuring this effect when the Craft are nearby.

Weather Balloon Information from the National Weather Service:

Twice a day, every day of the year, weather balloons are released simultaneously from almost 900 locations worldwide! This includes 92 released by the National Weather Service in the US and its territories. The balloon flights last for around 2 hours, can drift as far as 125 miles away, and rise up to over 100,000 ft. (about 20 miles) in the atmosphere. The balloons, which start out measuring about 6 ft. wide before release, expand as they rise to about 20 ft. in diameter.

Video of a weather balloon launch, taken at the National Weather Service office in Green Bay, WI. Attached to the balloon is the actual instrument called a radiosonde. The radiosonde measures temperature, pressure, and humidity; the instrument is tracked so that wind speed and direction can also be measured. This video was shot in 2002.
