About our Presenters:

Nicholas Platco: Top 10 UFO Physical Trace Cases. Physical trace UFO reports were labeled Close Encounters of the Second Kind (CE-II) by  Dr. J.Allen Hynek and involve instances where there was a physical interaction between the UFO and its environment. Usually these involve a landing trace, such as depressed grass or soil, but also burned or broken vegetation, residues, and more exotic traces. The program UFO Physical Trace Cases by Dr. Nicholas Platco presents 10 of the top physical traces cases-cases of high strangeness that involved multiple witnesses. The cases presented by Dr. Platco represent just 10 trace/landing events from a UFO database of over 4000 such events. Dr. Nicholas Platco is a retired Astronomy and Meteorology professor at Penn State University. He is a member of MUFON and has been a Field Investigator for MUFON since his retirement in 2015. Dr. Platco currently lives in Skipack, Pennsylvania. His field investigation work for MUFON includes Montgomery County and some of the surrounding counties in Pennsylvania.

George Filer
Military Encounter with UFOs. George Filer saw his first UFO in 1962 when he was flying a tanker plane for the Air Force to refuel fighters over England. The control tower sent his plane to investigate a UFO on the radar, near Stonehenge. His plane dove from 33,000 feet to 1,000 feet to find it. His second encounter came a few years ago, from the bedroom of his Medford Lakes home, which faces Briarwood Lake. “I woke at 4 am”, he said, “The bedroom was filled with light pouring in from the window.  I saw a UFO surfacing. It looked like a submarine coming out of the water, a blue ionization.” Filer spent 20 years in the Air Force, logging over 5,000 hours in the air.  For most of his career he was an intelligence officer. He briefed generals in Vietnam after receiving UFO reports over the DMZ. [demilitarized zone].  Since he retired, Filer has become East Coast director of the Mutual UFO Network, the nation’s largest UFO organization. From his home office he edits a weekly internet newsletter called Filer’s Files. ufofiler.com

Gary Osborn, Rendlesham Forrest Incident, Since January 2011, Gary has been working with Jim Penniston (ex USAF retired) and John Burroughs (ex USAF retired) - primary witnesses of the Rendlesham UFO Forest Incident in December 1980. In particular; an independent study of the Penniston Binary Code. Work is still in progress and the findings thus far are no less than phenomenal. In early 2012, Gary was a guest on the Behind the Paranormal radio show with hosts Paul and Ben Eno, along with guests Jim Penniston and John Burroughs. Gary has written two books with former "co-author" Philip Gardiner - The Serpent Grail 2005 and The Shining Ones (released August, 2006). Gary's ideas and theories were first presented in The Serpent Grail, by which he was able to present a fresh new interpretation of the Grail (the three levels) and also properly define the mystery of the 'Philosopher's Stone', and all in terms of cyclical phenomena and what our physicist's know today as 'zero-point energy’. His own contributions comprise the first half of the book. In 2009 Gary began work on a book project with author Scott Creighton, and between them they co-authored a radical and groundbreaking book about the true purpose of the pyramids of Giza, 'The Giza Prophecy'. The foreword was kindly written by best-selling author, Graham Hancock, and was released in the USA and Canada, January 2012, and in the UK, 1st February 2012. Gary has written a series of articles for both Mindscape and Heretic Magazines of which he is a regular contributor, and also New Dawn magazine with Scott Creighton. Gary has appeared on BBC Radio Nottingham and also The James Whale Show Talk Sport, and has also presented 'The Serpent Grail' in a series of lectures - appearing at The Theosophical Society in London, QuestCon 05, organized every year by friend and fellow author Andrew Collins, and also BUFORA (British UFO Research Association).

James Krug -  What happen on Board Apollo 11.

Peter Moon has been researching and untangling the quantum phenomena with regard to time travel ever since he met Preston Nichols in 1990 and coauthored "The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time". While writing that book, Peter did a study of the publishing industry and discovered that the corporate structures of all major publishers indicated they were either owned or under the control of major defense contractors.  The consequence of this study was that he decided to start his own maverick publishing company, Sky Books, which is dedicated to discovering the mysteries of the universe, the primary mystery of which is, according to him, time itself.  Peter has since authored or published over a dozen books and the tag line for his company is "Sky Books: Where Science Fiction Meets Reality."  There is a remarkable irony to this tag line and that begins with time travel scientist Dr. David Anderson's own personal journey to speak to a group of scientists and science fiction writers who meet annually on the Danube River in Romania at the Atlantykron conference whose theme is "where science fiction becomes reality."  Dr. Anderson met Peter Moon right after his first visit to this conference and it seemed logical for him to unite these two unique enterprises.  Peter's books were subsequently translated into the Romanian language and his contacts in Romania afforded him the remarkable opportunity to learn about what is considered to be the most remarkable archaeological find in the history of Mankind.  This information came through Radu Cinamar, a member of Department Zero, the most secretive of Romania's intelligence bureaus which deals in occult operations. This discovery concerns an ancient sphinx located in the Bucegi Mountains of Romania and near the border of the famous land known as Transylvania.  This sphinx, unknown to most of the outside world, rests hundreds of meters over a mysterious chamber inside the mountain which, according to Radu, houses remarkable technology, one aspect of which is that can read out the DNA of humans and all other life forms, including aliens, in holographic representations. A further aspect of this technology is that it also gives a holographic pictorial history of life on earth.  This chamber also includes tunnels, one of which leads to a mysterious time travel device. While these are controversial claims, they are corroborated by the swirling political intrigue surrounding this discovery in August of 2003.  According to Radu Cinamar,  it was the Pentagon who provided the technological means so that the Romanians could access the secret chamber. The intense negotiations between Romania and the United States over this technology resulted in unprecedented diplomatic relations between the two countries. These facts are evidenced in the press with Romania becoming a member of NATO and American military bases being established in Romania.While a final conclusion is yet to be made, Peter Moon has continued his investigation into these matters which has included journeys to Romania and an annual visit to Atlantykron.  The professors there have taught him that the ancient ruins of Romania are based upon astropaleology, that is the study of megaliths and their relationship to the stars and, further, that these ancient calendars are pointing to an incredible future where ancient technology from long forgotten civilizations such as Atlantis, will arise again. Hence the name Atlantykron which means "time of Atlantis."Peter has published Radu Cinamar's first book "Transylvania Sunrise" and has also added his own significant discoveries as well.  He is planning to publish the rest of his works and also add in his own investigations which include correlating his findings with the Anderson Institute and the discoveries made therein. Peter has been writing and publishing books since 1990 and is internationally know for "The Montauk Project: Experiments in Time" which covers the hidden history of the Philadelphia Experiment and how the technology from that was parlayed into wild experiments in time at Montauk, New York during the Seventies and early Eighties. Most recently, Peter has worked with Dr. David Anderson, a scientist who has his own Time Travel Research Center and just made a huge splash with an appearance on Art Bell's Coast to Coast radio show last week. It is currently the hottest buzz around. David is a friend of Peter’s and sponsored his first visit to Romania where Peter was able to visit an ancient sphinx where the Romanians, with the help of the Pentagon, have discovered an ancient chamber full of high technology which includes a projection hall which shows the history of the world. There are also sophisticated biological scanning devices and other technology which is a science fiction author's dream. Peter is currently the only author to write about this in English.
