Charles I. Halt (Born 1940) is a retired United States Air Force Colonel and the former base commander of RAF Bentwaters near Woodbridge, Suffolk. After serving in Vietnam, Japan and Korea, he was assigned to Bentwaters as deputy commander. The Rendlesham Forest incident of late December 1980 occurred shortly afterwards, and he was an important witness to events on the second night of sightings.

In the late hours of December 27th and early December 28th 1980, then Lieutenant Colonel Halt led a patrol to investigate an alleged UFO landing site near the eastern edge of Rendlesham Forest. During this investigation they witnessed several unidentified lights, most prominent of them being a bright flashing light in the direction of Orford Ness. In January 1981 Halt composed an official Air Force memorandum listing details of the events. The memo was then dispatched to the Ministry of Defence. Colonel Halt also made an audio tape recording whilst the incident was actually taking place.

After retiring from the US Air Force in 1991, Colonel Halt made his first public appearance in a television documentary, where he confirmed the authenticity of the Rendlesham Forest incident.

Charles Halt now shares his amazing story around the world and has visited the location (Woodbridge) on many occasions to talk about the incident in depth and to answer questions from the public.

He is also good friends with John Hanson & Dawn Holloway who are the authors of the ‘Haunted Skies’ Encyclopaedias. A multi volume, immense collection of confirmed UFO sightings and in depth information. Volume 8 dedicates itself to the Rendlesham Forest incident with direct input from Charles Halt himself. These books are available to buy via the Haunted Skies website.

There are many believers as well as sceptics to Charles Halt’s story, but he has always shown professionalism, calmness and his story has never wavered since that day back in 1980.

Dr. John Mack, Budd Hopkins, Kathleen Marden and Dr. Frank Salisbury have been an inspiration to her.

She joined MUFON and became a field investigator after several unexplained sightings she had in the Salt Lake valley. Her sightings were eerily similar to those by Dr. Lynne Kitei (the Phoenix lights). After researching MUFON case files, she became convinced that there has been unexplained phenomenon for decades and that most of them are related.

Connie-WillisConnie Willis (no relation to host, Martin Willis) has been in the broadcast Radio, TV and Film industry for over 20 years. You may have seen her reporting, hosting or anchoring on ESPN, SPEED, UPN, DISNEY, TNN, OXYGEN, HSN, QVC, EVINE LIVE or pitching products on many infomercials worldwide. You may have heard her on the airwaves in Louisville, Lexington, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Tampa/St. Pete or Orlando. With a BA in Broadcast Journalism focusing on film, performance, and psychology from the University of Kentucky, she has a unique style of interviewing. Being dubbed a conversationalist, she genuinely enjoys discussing topics and contributes to the conversation of those she interviews.

Connie is a serious student of high strangeness, having her own experiences since the early age of three. These experiences left her with strong desires to find the truth of those phenomena. As a woman, her perspective is as much emotional as it is factual, which goes hand in hand. She has interviewed many people in her life and is best known for going into the field of research to experience it for herself.

Connie enjoys digging deep into mysteries surrounding the inexplicable effects and synchronicity of events related to UFO and extraterrestrial encounters as well as anything outside the range of normal human knowledge or scientific explanation including time travel, cryptozoology, telepathy, Mayan culture, crop circles, the after life, ghosts, hybrids, radionics, psychic spies, super soldiers, and other esoteric topics. Due to her passion to know the truth, she researches these strange anomalies, attempting to connect the dots and find the answer.

Connie is always interested and eager to join exceptional research teams, even coordinating her own “off the beaten path” special projects. In fact, she is a Certified Advance Controlled Remote Viewer taught under the direction of Lyn Buchanan, one of the military’s top ‘Psychic Spies’ from the top-secret program, Project Stargate. She took the classes to see if remote viewing was real, she now believes!

 Guest Jan C. Harzan, MUFON Executive Director

Jan C. HarzanJan recently retired from IBM after 37 years in the Information Technology business. Jan’s interest in UFOs began at the age of 8 when he read an article on Donald Keyhoe and NICAP in Argosy magazine. Based on this and other research he and his brother did over the next two years, they made the decision to build a flying saucer believing that electromagnetic propulsion was the key to how these craft were able to travel such great distances. While in the process of doing this, they were visited by a real UFO, no more than thirty feet from them, with no visible means of propulsion other than making a humming noise, before shooting off over the horizon. This event profoundly changed their lives. As a result of this experience, Jan pursued finding the answer to the technology these craft display believing that a breakthrough would revolutionize transportation and energy on our planet. As part of his drive to find the answer, Jan attended UCLA School of Engineering and received his B.S. in Nuclear Engineering. After college, he was hired by IBM, thinking that only a company of IBM’s stature and funding in basic research could solve this problem. 37 years later, Jan is still looking for the answer to how all this works. As a member of the MUFON Business Board Jan has been instrumental in leading MUFON’s Strategic Planning, as well as creating the Case Management System (CMS) used for UFO reporting, tracking, and investigative follow-up. Jan currently resides in Newport Beach, California, with his wife, Annette, and their two children. Jan was named Executive Director of MUFON on August 1, 2013.  (source)

Show Notes: Mark Richfield & Preston Dennett

Show 180. December 9th, Recorded Live Wednesday 8:00-10:00PM EST

Mark Richfield talking about a UFO Detection Indiegogo Project, CubeSat in the first hour & Preston Dennett about his new book, UFOs Over Nevada.

The following is a post recording reply from Dave Cote to comments made during the show with Mark Richfield:

“Great podcast, sorry Mark didn’t have all the answers. A few answers you were looking for:

I have Matt Lippert who runs the cubesat program at the Wright Patterson Airforce base finally give me the Okay to say he’s building and testing the sat. I couldn’t tell Mark this as Matt had to make sure he wasn’t going to get any flack from Wright Patterson, but I now have the Okay. It will be our design and all parts will be at cost. The Base has all testing facilities we need. We will collect visuals, and now likely passive infra red, possibly passive radar.

Thanks to Matts connections we may also get a free launch, as companies usually have free space on a launch, and prefer to stuff experiments in rather than dumb weight. With a free launch, we canadd alot more equipment.  The sat will be in orbit approx 3 months.

Downlink well be either HAM or through globalstar.

Dave:)”

UFOs hovering in the heart of Las Vegas, dramatic UFO-car chases in the remote Nevada deserts, cases of aliens walking among us—they’re all here, and more. Read about Truman Betherum, who had a series of encounters with friendly humanoids, and country singer Johnny Sands, who had a face-to-face visitation with strange ETs in the desert outside Las Vegas. Find out about the 1962 UFO crash over Las Vegas and what really is going on inside the super-secret Area 51. The truth is so strange, it will be difficult to accept.

First: Mark Rodeghier & Leslie Kean on: (Very) Local SETI: The Launch of a New UFO Science

UFODATA – A Way Forward in UFO Science

mark leslieAt UFODATA we seek to create a systematic, rigorous science of UFO phenomena. Such a science is needed because of misplaced certainties on both sides of the UFO debate: “believers” convinced that UFOs are extraterrestrials, and “skeptics” equally convinced that UFOs do not even exist. Our own view is that humanity knows very little about the true nature of unexplained UFO reports, and that the only way to resolve this lack of understanding is through serious scientific study. This is now possible for the first time in the history of UFO research as a result of an unprecedented convergence of high resolution digital camera technologies, off-the shelf scientific instrumentation, powerful low-cost computing platforms, and ubiquitous high-speed internet access.  Check out: ufodata.net

Then guest, Dr. Michael Shermer
