2014 MUFON Symposium: UFOs and the Media

WHAT IS THE MUFON SYMPOSIUM?

The MUFON Symposium is an annual event that brings together UFO experts and enthusiasts alike including MUFON’s field investigators from around the world to a common meeting place open to the public and media to learn about the latest UFO developments and MUFON’s vision for the future.

The first MUFON Symposium took place in Peoria, Illinois, on June 13, 1970, some 45 years ago, with the theme of “UFOs – An Unexplored Scientific Horizon.”  Since those early days the MUFON Symposium has blossomed into the world-class meeting-of-the-minds that it is today.

This year experts from within MUFON and from the scientific and media community will present their personal views and research on the UFO phenomenon. In addition to our speakers, it is also an opportunity for those interested in UFO sighting investigations to attend our MUFON field investigators training class on Thursday, June 17th just prior to the Symposium speaker events.

This three-day event, four if you attend the field investigator training, is full of important information that will leave your mind brimming with new possibilities. It is a great way to meet like-minded people, make new friends, and personally meet many of the leaders in the UFO Field. Register TODAY!

    Re Filer’s Files #23-2014:
    1. California Space Planes (Puppysonny) – “chemtrails” again, very likely intermittent contrails influenced by high altitude air turbulence and currents.

    2. “Maryland Light” is almost certainly sunlight refracted in the lens. References to “chemtrails” are bogus. Speaking as a pilot and retired air traffic controller who has watched a LOT of sky, every report I have read of “chemtrails” are by people who don’t understand the nature of high altitude atmosphere, weather and how contrails relate to it.

    3. “New York Light” (MUFON CMS) – the blue light at the top is almost certainly a lens refraction from the intense blue lights at the bottom of the photo.
