Joseph Flammer - UFOs over America, Joseph Flammer, New York MUFON Field Investigator and author of two books about UFOs and several other books about the paranormal, in an examination of the mysterious “orbs” typically seen as “lights” in the night sky. These extraordinary sightings are not the lights of airplanes nor helicopters, they’re not the lights of drones nor Chinese lanterns, they’re not paranormal “ghost lights”, and they’re not to be dismissed out of hand as man-made objects. The question is: Are these inexplicable lights alien in nature? Mr. Flammer will discuss multiple orb sightings, commonly reported on Long Island, in the Hudson Valley Region of upstate New York, and extending into nearby Pennsylvania. Flammer, a former Main Line, Stratford, PA resident, has written two popular UFO books: UFOs Over Long Island, New York (Schiffer: 2015), and UFOs Over America: Scariest Cases (Schiffer: 2016). Mr. Flammer is currently conducting research for a new book about Rh negative blood and its possible origins in alien life forms. Were humans impregnated by aliens? Besides orbs, topics to be discussed include triangular UFOs, missing time and abductions, for which Long Island and the Hudson Valley may have developed a conspicuously nasty reputation within the last 60 or so years. He will reveal secrets of some of his bone-chilling cases, one of which was selected by MUFON as one of the Top Ten cases worldwide of 2015. Mr. Flammer will also discuss possible alien “monster” sightings in Pennsylvania and Long Island. This is a multi-media presentation, rich with video, photos and audio.



Chris Obrien - UFO Data Acquisition and Project Detection.

Author Chris Obrien will discuss the a first high tech UFO data research equipment set up in the San Luis Valley triangulated with a second setup near Mt Adams, in WA State.: From 1992 to 2002 Christopher O’Brien investigated over one thousand paranormal events reported in the San Luis Valley—located in south-central Colorado/north-central New Mexico. Working with law enforcement officials, ex-military, ranchers and an extensive network of sky-watchers, he documented what may have been the most intense wave of unexplained activity ever seen in a single region of North America. His ten-year investigation resulted in the three books of his “Mysterious Valley” trilogy: “The Mysterious Valley, Enter the Valley, and Secrets of the Mysterious Valley.”  His latest book: “Stalking the Herd,” is being called the most important book ever written examining our relationship with cattle and how this has manifested into the modern “cattle mutilation” mystery. Chris is currently working on launching the UFO Data Acquisition Project (UFODAP). This project uses self-contained units that include cameras and other sensors to capture data on UFO events. He has already built working units ready to be deployed and is working on partnerships to build and deploy more units. Of the many similar projects underway, Chris’ is the first to begin deployment. In this interview, we talk to Chris about his project, the future of the project and how those interested in helping can pitch in.Chris is currently installing the first UFODAP system in the San Luis Valley, CO.

David Paulides, - Bigfoot - Wild Men and Giants. David is an American cryptozoologist, author, and producer known for claiming the real-life existence of a cryptid named Bigfoot. He has also linked the disappearances of several people in National Parks and elsewhere to mysterious and unspecified causes. After finishing college, he joined the Fremont Police Department and a few years later, was transferred to San Jose Police Department as a member of their SWAT team. Later, he was made a detective and served as part of the Vice/Intelligence Unit, performing various assignments. After his voluntary retirement from the police, Paulides briefly worked as an executive in the technology sector and later was asked to determine the possibility of the existence of Bigfoot. He began his career as a cryptozoologist and subsequently authored two self-published books and set up the research group North America Bigfoot Search. He even a sponsored a research paper on the subject through the group but it was poorly received. For his next project, Paulides chose Missing 411, on which he released a few other self-published books and made a documentary.



Gerard Aastson, Writer and researcher from the Netherlands, Author of “George Adamski: A Herald for the Space Brothers” (2010) Gerard is an educator at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands. He is the author of “George Adamski: A Herald for the Space Brothers” (2010) and “Here to Help: UFOs and the Space Brothers” (2011). He has lectured about the Space Brothers in Europe, America, and the Philippines. Having been a student of the Ageless Wisdom teachings for over thirty years Mr. Aartsen is able to take a spiritual look at the UFO phenomenon. I had the privilege of interviewing Gerard Aartsen for OM Times about why he believes the people behind the UFOs are our “Space Brothers” and their purpose in coming to Earth.


David Marler, - The Battle of L.A. – UFO in 1942? One of the most dramatic events in UFO history occurred five years before the flying saucer wave of 1947. At least one genuine unidentified flying object was sighted visually by thousands of witnesses; tracked on radar; photographed by a member of the press; and fired upon repeatedly by elements of the United States military. Ample documentation exists regarding this event in the form of newspapers and government documents. Despite the explanations of the time attributing this event to “jittery war nerves” or “Japanese planes”, a comprehensive retrospective analysis can now be made that suggests an alternate explanation. Armed with new insights concerning the photographic evidence as well as correlating eyewitness’ testimony with press material from the time, a detailed account becomes clear. David Marler weaves all of this material together to take you back 75+ years to what is perhaps the first well-documented UFO event of the 20th Century.  David has had a lifelong interest in the UFO subject and has actively investigated and researched the subject for 29 years. He joined The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in 1990 as a Field Investigator Trainee. Since then, he has served as Field Investigator, State Section Director, as well as Illinois State Director. David is currently an independent UFO researcher. David has assisted the History, Learning, Discovery, Science, and Smithsonian Channel on UFO documentaries over the years in addition to independent productions. David was the third and final Editor of the long-running UFO News Clipping Service and took over from Lou Farish who also bequeathed his extensive UFO collection to David upon his death. In his newly-published book, Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation, David has provided a comprehensive analysis of triangular UFOs. He has collected, collated, and analyzed hundreds of reports. In the process, he has created a detailed profile of these objects and written a rich narrative of their history. David has also recently delved into new investigations on two historical cases, The Battle of L.A. Case from 1942 and the Farmington, NM 1950 “flying saucer armada” case. With newly uncovered historical material, he has added clarity to these cases. David received his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville (SIUE). He received his Certification in Hypnotherapy from Mottin and Johnson Institute of Hypnosis in St. Louis, Missouri. David is a Registered Polysomnographic Technician (RPSGT) and assisted in diagnosing and treating patients that suffered from various sleep disorders for several years at a major St. Louis-based medical facility. He also worked for a global medical equipment company for 13 years. David currently works in the healthcare field for a large New Mexico-based hospital network and resides in the Albuquerque, NM area with his wife and two daughters.


Randell Nickerson- The Ariel School Project.

Zimbabwe school children witness a UFO landing in their school yard in 1995. Randell Nickerson is producing a film about this fascinating story. In a small remote village in Zimbabwe, dozens of African school children, along with their teachers and school administrators, watched carefully as an unknown craft landed in their schoolyard. The witnesses saw small beings maneuvering around on the ground interacting with the environment.  Theses beings then returned to their craft and took off.  A local news network interviewed the children and teachers at the time of the incident.  Twenty years later Randell returned in 2004 and located these students, now grown adults, to re-interview them. Randell Nickerson is bringing this amazing story to light as a documentary film for release next year. This film captures the impact that this event had on everyone’s life, as it still remains a mystery today. For a link to more information. . Hear his interview
