Holiday UFO Gifts To Unwrap…


The past two weeks have been quite a ride for folks interested in the UFO subject. The revelation of what many have suspected for a long time, that the Pentagon likely has ongoing projects investigating mysterious anomalous encounters, has ignited the media-sphere with discussion of this big UFO news. Some have known this was coming for over a year. Pop-punk icon turned paranormal media mogulTom DeLonge has been teasing such revelations for a long time and back on October 11th he made UFOlogical history with his social media streamed press teleconference launching his crowdfunded Public Benefit Corporation, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, that features a bevy of Deep State Intelligence Operatives on its founding board of advisors. It wasn’t until two weeks ago and the NYTimes’ media campaign’s rollout of the identity of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, that the extent and shape of this introductory “disclosure” began to be fleshed out by various investigative journalists both within and without the UFO research community.

At the Anomaly Archives’ File/Collection pages below you can find a fantastic collection of links to news and analysis of this latest and greatest UFO Media Flap!

Some of the most important links include…

  • October 11, 2017 – Louis Elizondo goes public at To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science press teleconference with Tom DeLonge, without naming the Pentagon’s AATIP. (YouTube Archive). Transcript of broadcast: click here.

 . . . Susan Lepselter, an anthropology professor at Indiana University Bloomington, pointed out that the times we live in have a lot to do with the fears that inform our thinking about UFOs — from the nuclear era to global warming.

“Our sense of precariousness is very high right now,” Lepselter tells us. “When you think about an alien or UFO, it reminds us we are all citizens of Earth.”

Book of the Week…

In 2005 I met the author of this issue’s Book-of-the-Week at the Anomaly Archives’ biggest ever event, the Texas Ghost Lights Conference featuring me as Master of Ceremonies with speakers including Rob Riggs, Nick Redfern, Paul Devereux, and … James Bunnell. Back in the Summer of 2016, Mr. Bunnell donated a number of books to the Anomaly Archives, including his own latest book and an archival DVD featuring his work on the Marfa Mystery Lights.

The Super Natural
A New Vision of the Unexplained
by Whitley Strieber & Jeffrey J. Kripal

From C. M. Mayo’s review…

“[i]f we, as scholars of religion, cannot take this text seriously, if we cannot interpret it in some satisfying fashion, if we cannot make some sense of this man’s honest descriptions of his traumatic, transcendent experiences, then we have no business trying to understand his spiritual ancestors in the historical record. We either put up here, or we shut up there. I decided to put up.”

Now to the Kantian cut. It is to distinguish between the appearances of things and what may actually lie behind them. In making that cut, we recognize that while our physical senses provide us with essential survival-oriented information, in no way do they even begin to convey to our consciousness awareness the totality of reality. As Kripal writes, this cut “is a very reasonable and appropriate response to our actual situation in the cosmos.” Furthermore, “Once one makes such a cut, one can, in principle, take any religious experience or mythical world seriously and sympathetically without adopting any particular interpretation of it, much as one suspends disbelief to enjoy a good novel or watch a science-fiction movie.”

In other words, we don’t need to accept nor reject Strieber’s reports of UFOs and “the visitors”— yes, we can keep the lids on our coconuts while adopting the stance of radical empiricism in considering large-scale quantum phenomena! 

Put yet another way: if we can simply look at such experiences as Strieber’s, sit with them, consider them “seriously and sympathetically, without adopting any particular interpretation”—we can then, to quote Kripal again, “begin to study their  patterns, histories, narrative structures, sexual dimensions, and philosophical implications.” The Kantian cut thus gives us the power to then spiral up to a broader, richer view. It is an astonishing power.

. . .

Many people know Strieber as “that guy who wrote about being abducted by extraterrestrials.” In fact, Strieber reports his perceptions of his experiences, but as to what they actually are, he says, “I am a wanderer, lost in a forest of hypotheses.” Strieber also echoes Kripal in arguing that, “it is not necessary to believe in such things as flying saucers, aliens, ghosts, and other unexplained phenomena in order to study them.”

But to study such things without puckerlips, and all brain cells firing, one must make that Kantian cut—and one needs courage to persist, for that Kantian cut must be made again and again in the face of our inclination towards easy polarities, to either believe or, more commonly, reject, bristling with hostility or scornful laughter. 

As Kripal puts it, one must “learn to live with paradox, to sit with the question.”

Book of the Week…

Edgar Cayce On Dreams
by Harmon H. Bro

“During the dreaming state of sleep, we experience the different levels of consciousness and receive input from the different realms of the spirit world. Through dreaming, we have special access to our spirit within. According to the Cayce readings, there is not a question we can ask which cannot be answered from the depths of our inner consciousness when the proper attunement is made.

A dream may be of a physical, mental, or spiritual nature and may deal with all manner of psychic manifestations. These include telepathy, clairvoyance, prophetic visions, out of body traveling, remembrance of past lives, communication with beings in other realms including deceased friends and relatives, spirit guides, angels, Christ, and even the voice of God. Dreams can also give invaluable information on the status of the body.

All subconscious minds are in contact with one another. Through the subconscious, dreams may place us in attunement with those in the physical realm or those in the spiritual realm. We may be visited in the night by discarnate entities for many reasons: they may seek to give us assurance about their well-being in other realms of existence; they may come seeking our aid through prayer; they may come to bring us information which may be very helpful or limited; or they may come to influence us with their own desires or perspectives, which may be helpful or harmful. For example, there are dream reports of deceased relatives appearing and giving instructions about where to find a will or a lost object.

The events we experience in the third-dimension are, as it were, a “past condition” because this dimension is simply a projection or a reflection of what is being built at another higher level. Therefore, when we tune into these higher levels, as we may in dreams, we become aware of what is being built, and what may be projected into the physical in the future. Nothing of importance happens to us that is not foreshadowed in our dreams. Which is not to say that all dreams are precognitive or that the exact detail of everything we experience is given earlier in dreams. However, the word “foreshadowed” suggests that we may glimpse and be warned of what we are building now which may come into manifestation later. We call these dreams “precognitive” or “prophetic.”

Just as the angels spoke to people in dreams in the times of the Bible, the spirit world still speaks to people to this day. Some people came to Cayce with dreams of Christ. None was told that it was simply his imagination, but all were assured they were indeed in touch with him.

There is no dimension of human life, whether social, financial, emotional or physical, mental or spiritual with which the dream may not on occasion deal. Dreams may encourage or reprimand, instruct or deceive, inspire or seduce, guide or confuse. The potential for an immense array of experiences in consciousness is always there. What we actually receive depends upon our attitudes, motivations, the measure of our attunement, and the extent to which we have made applicable what was received in earlier dreams and in waking experiences.

Anomaly Archives Seeking New Location

Since 2009, the archive and lending library of the 501c3 Scientific Anomaly Institute has shared a space in North West Austin with the like-minded INACS (Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies). However, due to a variety of issues, both organizations are now actively seeking potential new locations; either jointly or independently. The lease for the current location expires at the end of January 2018.

Both the Anomaly Archives and INACS will be moving to a new location and are actively seeking new office space. One of the desired features they have been using in their search criteria is a large conference area that their partner organizations could continue to use for meetings and presentations.

Here are some of the features both organizations are seeking:

  • Single story or first floor
  • 800-1200 SF
  • Separate building entrance
  • Large conference / presentation space
  • Bathroom(s) and kitchenette area
  • 2-3 offices
  • Relatively central location

If any members of our associated groups are aware of office space available for lease that might be suitable, please pass the suggestion on to Anomaly Archives founder, SMiles Lewis and to INACS‘ Administrative Committee (Bob Price, Miles Lewis, and Lois McGee).

Thanks for your help!

September 18th, 2017 – Austin, Texas. . .

Another anniversary of 911 has come and gone. For better or worse, conspiracy culture has become ever more mainstream in America. Austin, Texas continues to be part of the epicenter of that growth because of folks like Alex Jones and others who grew out of Austin’s Community Access TV network, ACTVWell the subjects of both paranormal and parapolitical aspects of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 inform our selections of both Video-Of-The-Week and Book-Of-The-Week for this issue…

 – VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Back in 2015 I presented an informal lecture discussion featuring various videos related to esoteric aspects of September 11th. Among the videos I presented was a video montage I threw together as accompaniment to my 2005 audio narration of my 2002 Austin Para Times editorial. Well, I finally uploaded that video and have included it here as this issue’s Video Of The Week.

I should of course add that … “The opinions expressed in this editorial do not necessarily reflect those of the Anomaly Archives or its board of directors.”

 – BOOK OF THE WEEK

This book was one of, if not THE, first 911 conspiracy books published in the wake of September 11th, 2001. We are proud to have interviewed its author on our Blue Rose Report web radio show.

SMiles Lewis’ September 11th Editorial circa 2002
Austin-Para-Times editorial about September-11th-2001
(911) circa 2002
 by SMiles Lewis

In 2005 I turned the editorial into the first episode of my 911-Podcast. Several years later that audio podcast was aired by a friend on 91.7-fm KOOP radio.In 2015 I created this video montage using that same audio in preparation for a brief informal presentation titled: “SynchroMystic-911: Deep ParaPolitics & Esoteric-Occult High-Strangeness Surrounding September 11th”

The first part of the audio deals with the very real and provable Covert Ops, Deep State, Parapolitical elements of the 911 events. The second part deals with the precognitive parapsychological psychic ripple effects that were psensed before and during the events of that fateful day.

The Shadow Government: 9-11 and State Terror

by Len Bracken

“One of the more persuasive strategists, at least on this side of the Atlantic, is Len Bracken. By day, he’s a humble copy editor in Washington; by night, a novelist, biographer, amateur historian, translator, and underground essayist treasured in conspiracy circles, a man who never shows his face to his readers. The problem with conspiracy theories is that most of them are wrong. Still, if the turbulent, age-old story of statesmen conspiring to use terrorism to control their own populations can be believed, as Bracken successfully argues, then Shadow’s thesis raises more chilling questions than it answers. Why should 9-11 be anomalous? As Twain once remarked, history never repeats itself—but it does rhyme.”

  – Geoffrey Gray, Village Voice

 

Podcast of the 20th episode of The Blue Rose Report with guest Len Bracken. Len is the author of such nonfiction works as Shadow Government 911 and State Terror, The Arch Conspirator, and Guy Debord, Revolutionary, as well as fictional works Snitch JacketThe East is Black, and Freeplay.

August 28th, 2017 – Austin, Texas. . .

The past few weeks have been filled with multiple personal synchronicities, many revolving around recently digitized videos (or the sharing of images) I’ve collected or recorded over the years spanning the mid-1990s to the early 2000s. Some have been pleasant reminisces while others have had unpleasant or surprising connections with the terrible incidents in Charlottesville and the massive public reaction to the Free Speech Rally in Boston. I talk about these synchronicities in last week’s episode of PsiOp-Radio (#187) that I host with long-time friend and researcher, Mack White. One of the recently digitized videos (not associated with any of those syncs) is featured below as our video of the week.

 

 – VIDEO OF THE WEEK

I’ve recently added several new videos to myvariouspersonalYouTubeaccounts, including a couple of videos at the Official Anomaly Archives YouTube Channel. This one (see below) was recorded from Austin’s Community Access TV network, ACTV, and features the artwork of Austin contactee artist, Josi Galantealong with a didgeridoo soundtrack (possibly created by Austin didgeridoo player, Loping Buzzard*). Both were frequent attendees of the Austin UFO Forum & Study Group and / or similar local para-oriented group meetings (Austin MufonAustin Art Bell Chat Club etc.) back in the 1990s. Around 2011-ish, Loping Buzzard showed up at the Anomaly Archives to donate some of his many UFO and paranormal books. He had a terminal illness and wanted to donate his collection which also featured materials from Josi Galante’s personal collection.

I last heard from Josi back in 2014 and suspect that she too may have passed beyond…We love and them both – Josi G. & L.P.

Book of the Week…ExtraTerrestrials Among Us

by George C. Andrews 

“My aim as a writer is to express the truth as I perceive it on the subjects that interest me most” – George C. Andrews

George C. Andrews Bibliography  – FantomPowa: Flame Magazine

Borrow a digital copy from the Internet Archives

Review excerpt from New Dawn Magazine No. 36:

This remarkable book is presented by Fate magazine, and contains a wealth of information on UFO sightings, contacts and abductions, cattle mutilations and evidence of government shenanigans and cover-ups. Some of the topics covered include evidence from ancient scripture and occult writings of alien contact and ‘wars in heaven’, aspects of the cover-up of UFO sightings / contact and deliberate discreditation / ridicule of contactees and their supporters, U.S. government involvement in said cover-ups, etc. There is a reasonable amount of material from the 19th century, and the author manages to link untraceable predators which decimate farmer’s cows and chickens in the UK midlands to the cattle mutilators of the American midwest (an interesting link to the so-called ‘ABC’s’ (Alien Big Cats) said to plague British farmers to this day.) Charles Fort receives credit for mentioning UFO related phenomena long before it became something in the public eye, and the book reproduces a number of his hypotheses (we are cattle!) as well as presenting some of the bizarre cases he collected. 

 

Review excerpt from UFO Book Review by Mac Tonnies:

Andrews’ book on UFOs and Fortean weirdness is a difficult mix of metaphysical speculation and solid reporting. The texture of Andrews’ book is scattered and paranoid and he never lingers on a specific subject long enough for the reader to come away with anything of real investigative value. This is an enjoyable foray into strangeness and conspiracy theory, but not nearly the journalistic dynamite as Timothy Good’s “Above Top Secret.”

Mystery Hum Audio Sound – VIDEO OF THE WEEK

Back in January / February of 2016, I experienced a strange auditory phenomena on-and-off for about 26 days. Was it the notorious Worldwide Mystery Hum phenomenon? Upon mentioning it to my good friend and PsiOp-Radio co-host Mack White, I discovered that he too had a strange auditory experience last year in October. Though we are geographically distant (I in Austin and he in Fort Worth) we compare notes and discuss this puzzling phenomenon.

Book of the Week…Black Elk Speaks

by John G. Neihardt

Black Elk Speaks is a 1932 book by John G. Neihardt, an American poet and writer, who relates the story of Black Elk, an Oglala Lakota medicine man. Black Elk spoke in Lakota and Black Elk’s son, Ben Black Elk, who was present during the talks, translated his father’s words into English.[1] Neihardt made notes during these talks which he later used as the basis for his book.[2]

The prominent psychologist Carl Jung read the book in the 1930s and urged its translation into German; in 1955, it was published as Ich rufe mein Volk (I Call My People).[3]

Reprinted in the US in 1961, with a 1988 edition named Black Elk Speaks: Being the Life Story of a Holy Man of the Oglala Sioux, as told through John G. Neihardt (Flaming Rainbow) and a State University of New York Press 2008 Premier Edition annotated by Lakota scholar Raymond DeMallie, the book has found an international audience. However, the book has come under fire for what critics describe as inaccurate representations of Lakota culture and beliefs.

In the summer of 1930, as part of his research into the Native American perspective on the Ghost Dance movement, the poet and writer John G. Neihardt, already the Nebraska poet laureate, received the necessary permission from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to go to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Accompanied by his two daughters, he went to meet an Oglala holy man named Black Elk. His intention was to talk to someone who had participated in the Ghost Dance. For the most part, the reservations were not then open to visitors.[4] At age 13, Black Elk had also been part of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, and he survived the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre.

So here’s another installment of the “weekly” newsletter. Tons of news links worth exploring to satisfy your cravings for weird articles and information.

Some of the many news items on my radar that I think you should definitely take a look at include…

World Congress on Mummy Studies “Declaration Of The Scientific Community Regarding The Fraud Of Extraterrestrial Mummies,” Paul Seaburn’s reportage on same over at Mysterious Universe, plus The Atlantic‘s article The Racism Behind Alien Mummy Hoaxes.

UFOs: Reframing the Roswell Slides Fiasco

Mufon & Ufology’s Continuing Death Spiral … starting with the mass resignation of MUFON membership over the organization’s response to a former State Director’s online racist rant, and the resignation of more State Directors (Washington State’s James Clarkson) as well as the organization’s Director of Research over the lack of scientific rigor on display at this year’s annual symposium which focused on unverifiable testimony presented at the “Secret Space Program” MUFON conference.

There have been a few noteworthy folks who’ve recently passed away:

There are a ton of links dealing with the early release of the thousands of documents related to the assassination of JFK – with more scheduled for probable release in October:

This week’s “Book of the Week” is another UFO anthology; this one is from the early 1990s and has a concluding essay which (much to my surprise) also delves into the relevance of Virtual Reality as a helpful metaphor for the UFO contact phenomenon like my own essay in the Reframing the Debate anthology.

UFOs The Final Answer?
Ufology for the 21st Century

Edited by David Barclay & Therese Marie Barclay
Featuring: Arthur Tomlinson, K.W.C. Phillips, Robert Moore, Roger Ford, Joseph Dormer, Charlotte A. O’Connor and David & Therese Marie Barclay

From EHE.org – The Exceptional Human Experience website… 

“Anthology on aspects of UFOs with the emphasis on hypotheses. The editors review a number of views on UFOs in the first chapter. Arthur Tomlinson surveys historical sightings of UFOs in ancient Egypt, Biblical, and classical times through the 19th century. K.W.C. Phillips deals with “the psychosociology of UFOlogy,” emphasizing that what we are actually studying are reports (texts), not first-hand data. He emphasizes the religious, historic, and folkloric dimensions of UFOs and notes the presence of a strong psi factor. Robert Moore, in “Science v. Saucery,” tries to provide a traditionally scientific exploration of UFOs. His chapter is a good survey of the “normal” counterhypotheses, both objective and subjective, which could explain 85% of all sightings. For the rest, he sets forth the “Mundane-Synthesistic Hypothesis,” in which synthesistic is “defined as many separate factors cumulating into a single result” (p. 92). Roger Ford describes what appear to be cases of the government spreading “deliberate disinformation” (p. 106) about seeming UFOs. Therese M. Barclay describes some of the best sightings she and others have investigated and concludes that UFOs are real but do not make sense within our accepted worldview: “It might be that they are real in a way our present-day cosmologies can’t conceive” (p. 113). Joseph Dormer argues that “the origins of UFOs, and their alien occupants, probably lies within us” (p. 152). Charlotte A. O’Connor sets forth a “racial dream hypothesis” to explain UFOs, especially UFO abductions. In the concluding chapter, David Barclay points out that “ufology as it presently stands [is] a loosely interconnected series of belief systems from which anyone can choose on the basis of personal preference alone” (p. 172). He also feels that skepticism is the least defensible choice and the most counterproductive. He proposes a holographic virtual reality model as the source of UFOs. Taken together, the viewpoints expressed offer an up-to-date survey of UFO explanations and counterhypotheses that is both quite comprehensive, and in some instances, presented in some depth.”

70th Anniversary Celebrating the Crash of the “Roswell-WhatsIt”

Last week marked the 70th anniversaries of Kenneth Arnold’s famous sighting and the crash of a mysterious ‘whatsit’ outside Roswell, New Mexico. I traveled to Roswell and spent 5 days and nights enjoying the local hospitality and seeing UFO-related lectures across town at 4 different venues. I saw old friends and made new ones. I took lots of pictures and hope to share more of my adventures in the near future. Until then …

70th Anniversary of the Birth of the Modern UFO Era

Audio interview of Kenneth Arnold (YouTube)

This week marks the 70th anniversaries of the two most seminal events in the birthing of the modern UFO era’s major myths: Kenneth Arnold’s sighting of a shimmering squadron of delta shaped objects over Mount Rainier, Washington and the crash of a mysterious ‘whatsit’ outside Roswell, New Mexico with alleged alien bodies recovered by the military. Both events occurred in the Summer of 1947, with the Arnold sighting cited as kicking off the American Flying Saucer craze and the Roswell newsflash only coming to prominence with the publication of The Roswell Incident (by Charles Berlitz and William Moore) in 1980.

I grew up believing in the classic myth of Roswell representing crashed saucers and pickled aliens scooped up and covered up by the US government but have since come to lean heavily towards the research documented by Nick Redfern in his two books: Body Snatchers in the Desert in 2005 and its recent follow-up, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy (May 2017). Both books detail a probable American project melding nefarious human experimentation with advanced avionics / nuclear radiation research. A sort of Project Paperclip (American importation of German Nazi scientists) meets Unit-731 (the Japanese version of Germany’s Dr. Mengele horrors) combining Fugo-balloons, unwitting human subjects (both Japanese and American), and Nazi Horten-brother flying-wing technologies. It’s a lot to take-in and no one wants to believe it but given the facts that we already know regarding each area of research (not to mention the CIA’s MK-Ultra sub-projects) it becomes all too plausible. Well, Nick Redfern is among the illustrious list of speakers presenting at one of two different UFO conferences being held in Roswell this year.

“Challenges to ET” conference organizer Guy Malone.

Albuquerque Journal coverage of upcoming conferences.

Given the sad state of UFOlogy this year (see our previous issue and this issue’s news headlines) it will be interesting to see what new information is presented at the two conferences being held. I will be attending the “Challenges to ET” conference hosted by Guy Malone that features Nick Redfern, Jack Brewer, Greg Bishop, Michael Heiser, and Joseph Jordan. I’ll also likely catch a speech or two at the Roswell Incident conference that is presented by the Roswell Daily Record newspaper which is set to feature presentations from Richard Dolan, Linda Howe, Nick Pope, Chase Kloetzke, Chuck Zukowski, Debbie Ziegelmeyer, Race Hobbs, David Marler, Marc D’Antonio, Alejandro Rojas, Courtney Brown, and Josh Gates.

So, if you are going to be in Roswell from June 29th to July 2nd, drop me a line at SMiles@AnomalyArchives.org and maybe we can have some interesting conversations-over-saucers!

Meanwhile…

Stop UFOlogical Cultural Appropriation &
Exploitation of Ancient Human Remains!

Gaia TV Covers the “Mystery” (Facebook Video)

You have undoubtedly come across news items alleging the discovery of a new mysterious body from Peru being touted as a mummified, possibly alien, body. Blogger and researcher Curt Collins (Blue Blurry Lineswrites:

“The remains of the dead should not be used as props for UFO promoters and entertainers like Maussan and Gaia. We’ve had the Star Child, Greer’s Sirius “Atacama Humanoid,” and when challenged about the BeWitness Slides, Maussan offered a bounty for the child’s body itself.
Forensic Anthropologists should be in charge of this kind of thing. Once the science is done, if there’s anything valid, share it with the world.
Until then, let the dead rest in peace. Don’t support the exploitation.”

I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Collins on this issue. You’d think folks would have learned by now, especially after the Roswell “Alien” Slides debacle promoted by Jaime Maussan and others fell apart in May of 2015. Yet the human will to believe continues, with many UFOlks looking for the next Smoking-Gun / Holy-Grail to prove their beliefs in ExtraTerrestrial visitation. For a more probable, down-to-earth explanation, see this Peruvian website’s investigation of this and other likely “manipulated artifacts.” (Hat tip to Sharon Hill of Doubtful News)

Blur – Thought I Was A Spaceman
La Musicale 2015

[Verse 1]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dunes
In a car park

Cause the desert had encroached upon
The places where we lived
People like me fight
To keep the demons in

But we never succeeded
We never succeeded
In fact we failed

[Verse 2]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
In a car park

By the empty harbour
Where the junk boat phantoms float
The fight for happy valley
Sadly, the line broke

[Verse 3]
Thought I found my black box
Washed up on the shore
On outlying islands
Past the land fall

Thought I thought I’d found it
But that was not true at all
I’d walked into a bar
Raised hell

[Verse 4]
Cut the chasm out me
Always and always the same
Put the ghost in writing
And let it be (you again)

Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
In Hyde Park

[Verse 5]
Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
You again

Thought I was a spaceman
Digging out my heart
In some distant sand dune
You again

You again
You again

The Close Encounters Man
How One Man Made the World Believe in UFOs

by Mark O’Connell

‘The Close Encounters Man’ tells the unlikely story of how the government’s astrophysicist debunker became the phenomenon’s most expert defender.

“If you’re jonesing for an extraterrestrial, you should check out The Close Encounters Man by Mark O’Connell. O’Connell, a writer for Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and founder of the UFO blog High Strangeness, set out to write “a UFO book people wouldn’t need to hide from other people.” He found his ideal subject in J. Allen Hynek, the astronomer hired by the United States Air Force in 1948 to debunk the reports of strange objects in the sky flooding in from across the country. Eventually Hynek broke with his handlers and became the first scientist to lend credence to the UFO phenomenon. The author of 1972’s The UFO Experience: A Scientific Study, he would go on to found the Center for UFO Studies in 1973, present a speech on flying saucers to the United Nations in 1978, and develop the “close encounter” scale that would inspire Steven Spielberg’s popular Close Encounters of the Third Kind (“a huge boon to his work,” O’Connell told me. “They shot a scene where the little aliens grab Hynek’s pipe from him and stick it up their noses, but it was cut down to a six-second cameo.”)

In telling the life story of Hynek, the “astro-beatnik,” O’Connell winds up with a stunning panorama of the UFO movement—from fringe conspiracy theorists to amateur astronomers to agnostic scientists—as well as its colossal impact on pop culture and modern science. I recently spoke with O’Connell over the phone about Hynek’s unique story of skeptic turned believer, the scientific study of the inexplicable, and what makes a good UFO witness.”

Read the rest of this interview with author and UFO researcher Mark O’Connell at the Source: The Professional UFO Skeptic Who Believed in Aliens – VICE by J. W. McCormack – May 30 2017

 

On the MUFON / John Ventre Scandal …

“Mark O’Connell, formerly an active MUFON investigator but also an open-minded critic of the organization has severed his ties with them over this series of incidents: UFO Fever.”

 

On Roswell & his debate with Don Schmitt …

Beating a Dead UFO – HighStrangenessUFO.com

“So, the other day I did a webcast with noted UFO authority and all-around nice guy Kevin Randle (you can listen to it here), in which we discussed the Roswell Debate I had recently with Don Schmitt. The debate, for those of you new to the story, took place at the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference earlier this fall. It was sponsored by well-known UFO and paranormal media outlet KGRA Radio, but after webcasting the debate live, KGRA has decided for reasons known only to them to reneg on their promise to post the debate on their website.”
