Project Antares was a Texas-based ufology organisation, "dedicated to gathering and evaluating data on flying saucers", including conducting polls and publishing newsletters.[1] The project was described as being an off-shoot the Fort Worth Astronomy Club, and reportedly took over the publishing of the zine Ufology News, formerly under the editorship of Ralph F. Sandbach, Jr.[2]

We are planning to conduct a nation-wide "saucer poll" this winter, to see how public opinion has changed on the subject since the last poll in late '57. Anyone who can help in this project is welcome."

The editorship was nominally assumed by Project Director Meredith Gorman, 3544 Bryan Street, Fort Worth, Tex. But since the change, the paper has not appeared, much to Ufology's loss. This was a fine effort under Sandbach."
