Last Saturday I was able to go to my first UFO conference, now to put things into some context, I’ve been interested in UFO’s most of my life. I know this will sound like a cliché, but I’m pretty sure Chariots of the Gods, a book I got off the scholastic bus in middle school made my mind explode. This book opened my world to other possibilities. To me the visitation theory made sense. Since then I’ve watched on TV, recorded on VHS and downloaded everything I could on UFO’s and ancient tech and the unexplained.
The 2013 UFO Symposium at The War Memorial Coliseum In Greensboro NC was a blast! Everything was absolutely well thought out. There were two large video screens on which the video presentations were shown. They didn’t appear to be projected more like giant video screens. Audio and video was crisp and sharp and I was comfortable anywhere I sat, as I listened to the Speakers.
The first video was an excellent re-creation of a UFO sighting by Kent Senter that occurred in the late 1980’s in Durham N.C. From there the speakers were amazing, all afternoon I got to listen to reports and all manners of data all presented with high quality video.
I was amazed by the statistics and data presented by Belgium Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer on the Belgium UFO flap of the late 90’s.
Richard Haines, who worked on the Gemini Apollo and Skylab space programs was absolutely riveting to listen to. His aircraft accident statistics were actually quite frightening. He is Chief scientist for NARCAP aviation UAP reporting center.
Personally seeing Dr. Haines, Colonel De Brouwer, Leslie Kean and Charles Halt really brings the realty the UFO phenomenon to me in a very personal way. The whole experience was just amazing knowing that all around me, were like minded people who are not crazy and also know that there are real UFO’s flying in our sky’s.
I was able to attend thanks to Martin Willis who operates PODCAST UFO, A podcast I’ve been hooked on since I stumbled upon it. And I’m planning to go to the next Symposium that’s not on the other side of the U.S. And I will definitely be here again next time.
I would have to say, having A fine dinner and chatting with Timothy Good at my table is something I will never forget, he was absolutely charming, witty and a warm soul.
