Stanton Friedman, Will not be able to join us this year as planned. We hope to host him next year.  Press Coverage of Flying Saucers  a Study in Laziness and Misrepresentation, Nuclear Physicist-Lecturer Stanton T. Friedman received his BSc. and MSc. Degrees in physics from the University of Chicago in 1955 and 1956. He was employed for 14 years as a nuclear physicist by such companies as GE, GM, Westinghouse, TRW Systems, Aerojet General Nucleonics, and McDonnell Douglas working in such highly advanced, classified, eventually cancelled programs as nuclear aircraft, fission and fusion rockets, and various compact nuclear power plants for space and terrestrial applications. He became interested in UFOs in 1958, and since 1967 has lectured about them at more than 600 colleges and 100 professional groups in 50 U.S. states, 10 Canadian provinces and 18 other countries in addition to various nuclear consulting efforts. He has published more than 90 UFO papers and has appeared on hundreds of radio and TV programs including on Larry King in 2007 and twice in 2008, and many documentaries. He is the original civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident and co-authored Crash at Corona: The Definitive Study of the Roswell Incident. TOP SECRET/MAJIC, his controversial book about the Majestic 12 group, established in 1947 to deal with alien technology, was published in 1996 and went through 6 printings. An expanded new edition was published in 2005. Stan was presented with a Lifetime UFO Achievement Award in Leeds, England, in 2002, by UFO Magazine of the UK. He is co-author with Kathleen Marden (Betty Hill’s niece) of a book in 2007: Captured! The Betty and Barney Hill UFO Experience. The City of Fredericton, New Brunswick, declared August 27, 2007, Stanton Friedman Day. His book Flying Saucers and Science was published in June 2008 and is in its 3rd printing. His newest book, also co-authored with Kathleen Marden, is Science Was Wrong released in June 2010. He has provided written testimony to Congressional Hearings, appeared twice at the UN, and been a pioneer in many aspects of ufology including Roswell, Majestic 12, The Betty Hill-Marjorie Fish star map work, analysis of the Delphos, Kansas, physical trace case, crashed saucers, flying saucer technology, and challenges to the S.E.T.I. (Silly Effort To Investigate) cultists. He has spoken at more MUFON Symposia than anyone else. Stanton T. Friedman is a dual citizen of the USA and Canada.

Linda Moulton Howe 10,000 B.C. Gobekli Tepe and Other Ancient Stone Structures - E. T. Terraforming? Emmy Award-winning TV producer and investigative journalist Linda Moulton Howe will present her firsthand research at Gobekli Tepe along with a leaked document from an American scientist about commercial applications of research from extraterrestrial technology perhaps relevant to centuries of non-human interaction on Earth. Linda traveled to Turkey in June 2012, to see the dozens of 19-foot-tall, elegantly carved limestone pillars erected in a series of circles covering 30 acres of a hill called "Gobekli Tepe" a few miles from the northern Syrian border. Carbon dating places the age of the finely honed pillars at 12,000 years ago. There are not any signs of habitation or even the tools that would seem necessary to carve the limestone pillars in their sophisticated style. One geologist hypothesizes the pillars might have functioned as tuning forks in unknown frequencies for unknown reasons. Ground-penetrating radar indicates there might be at least 250 more standing pillars in eighteen still-buried circles underneath several more acres. Compounding the mystery is the revelation that about a thousand years after its creation, all of the Gobekli standing pillars in circles were buried entirely with soil. How long would that have taken? Did the makers have knowledge of impending danger?  The immense effort required to erect the many sophisticated large stone circles 12,000 years ago and then bury them a thousand years later provokes speculation that Gobekli Tepe and stone circles, pyramids and ziggurats on this planet could be self-activating machines left behind by non-human intelligences that have terraformed Earth for millennia.

Anderson Cooper and the Case for UFOs John will discuss his experience appearing on the Anderson Cooper show in April of 2012 and the proof of UFOs. Since becoming Pennsylvania, Delaware, Vermont, Rhode Island, Maine and New Hampshire State Director for the Mutual UFO Network, I decided that I had better do some research and become a subject matter expert on UFOs. What I found astounded me. The history of UFOs on earth goes back 47,000 years. It can be traced through every culture and every time period of our “evolution”. I had heard of rock carvings, Nazca lines and ancient aliens. What surprised me were the Renaissance paintings and biblical connection to UFOs along with the many government documents regarding UFOs. When confronted with this preponderance of evidence, you have to ask why the U.S. Government refuses to investigate, acknowledge or discuss the existence of UFOs. Is it that they can’t or won’t? It is obvious that their procedures to debunk and infiltrate and deny are working. What aspect of this secret makes it above top secret? What is the horrible truth that forces our Government to violate the Constitution and misappropriate funds and lie to the public? With all of that said if it is more comfortable to be a skeptic, at least be an informed skeptic! John Ventre web site

Bill Birnes UFO Hunters Season One, 
Bill Birnes, JD, PHD is an American writer, editor, book publisher and literary rights agent. He is best known as an active publisher of UFO Magazine and host of the popular series UFO Hunters. He is the co-author of The Day After Roswell, which was a New York Times bestseller in 1997, and subsequently a documentary on The History Channel. Bill is author of The Haunting of America and UFO Hunters book one. Birnes is a frequent radio and television talk-show guest, having appeared on “Good Morning America,” “Dateline, NBC,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “Coast to Coast AM,” “UFOs in Russia,” “USOs, Underwater Submersible Objects,” “Ancient Aliens”, “Americas Book of Secrets” and “Black Box UFOs”. Bill is a yearly speaker at the Philly MUFON Conference. Bill will discuss UFO Hunters season one which follows the team of bestselling author Bill Birnes, former NASA physicist Dr. Ted Acworth, and former US Army engineer Pat Uskert as they investigate UFO cases around the world. The team’s access to UFO evidence is unparalleled—and their expertise allows them to quickly identify bogus claims. Together, they use eyewitness accounts, scientific experimentation, documents recently released through the Freedom of Information Act, and footage that has never been seen on television to piece together compelling—and sometimes chilling—evidence of UFO phenomena. Bill will discuss previously unseen documentary evidence and case details. Video about Bill

BEN Hansen, Media, Technology and Belief.  Ben Hansen is the lead host and investigator of the SyFy channel's Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files.  With three seasons on the air, the show focuses on recreating videos and photos of alleged paranormal events to see if they have a natural explanation, were hoaxed, or if they remain unexplained.  The six person team takes on cases of ghosts, UFOs, Bigfoot, chupacabras, mermaids, and other unusual occurrences.  Hansen graduated from the University of Utah and went to work investigating child physical abuse and sex crimes at the state level for several years before moving on to work for the FBI.  He eventually landed in Hollywood, where he helped develop what would later become at hit paranormal show, Fact or Faked.   Hansen is a spokesperson for Bushnell's line of night vision equipment which can be found at  When he's not filming, he travels the country lecturing, conducting public UFO and ghost investigating events, and developing new reality show projects. Hansen's principal area of focus within ufology is media technology and different methods available to film and document UFO events.  He will be talking about night vision and thermal cameras and the role of media technology in general and its relationship in bringing about a public acceptance and belief in UFOs.  Is seeing really believing?  Will video and film of UFO events bring about ultimate disclosure?  Is there censorship over Hollywood and the media or an overall agenda?  Hansen's law enforcement background has also given him significant experience in interviewing thousands of witnesses, victims, and perpetrators of criminal activity.  Using his interviewing expertise, Hansen conducts trainings for UFO investigators to help those in the field to determine which cases are legitimate and which are most likely hoaxed.  Hansen will share with us the findings of several compelling cases he's investigated both on and off his television show.  Ben Hansen link

Dr. Lynne Kitei is an internationally acclaimed physician and award winning health educator with a distinguished career spanning over 35 years. She was the Chief Clinical Consultant of the Imaging-Prevention-Wellness Center at the renowned Arizona Heart Institute in Phoenix before pushing her successful medical career aside to pursue the source and meaning of the historic Arizona mass sighting event of March 13, 1997, which has become known across the globe as the "Phoenix Lights". The 1997 AZ statewide mass UFO sighting has become known worldwide as the “Phoenix Light” and is hailed by experts and Media alike as the most witnessed most documented and most important anomalous event in Modern History. Not only was there a parade of silent mile wide V formations of orbs and nine different craft, witnessed by over 10,000 at low altitude for over a dozen hours throughout Arizona, CA, New Mexico and Nevada, but the advanced aerial technologies displayed were way beyond our own – and continue to grace the skies of our planet.   Dr. Kitei has tirelessly and meticulously studied these anomalies for the past 17 years, pushing her accomplished Medical career aside while searching for a logical explication. She has yet to find one, but her 35mm & video evidence of the “Phoenix Lights” have been confirmed by University and Military Optical experts as true unknowns - that cannot be explained or denied to this day. What makes Dr. Kitei’s MUFON Presentation unique and much needed in the field, is that her findings are not only about the nuts & bolts of Ufology. During her intensive inquiry as a scientist, physician and first-hand experiencer, Dr. Kitei also discovered the powerful connection between ALL Unexplained Phenomena, including Near Death Experience, Out of Body & UFO Contact (what she calls UPs), plus the real-time and long-term effect on the witnesses themselves, as well as the Media, who applaud Dr. Kitei's credible data and approach to the topic. Dr. Kitei takes us to the next step in our search for answers by delving into the intriguing “coincidences” and profound impact that these global anomalous phenomena are having on our consciousness and evolution, in addition to the significant influence the historic AZ mass sighting is having on the Media who cover the data seriously and professionally. As Dr. Kitei stated when she came forward in 2004, after seven years of anonymity, it is time we get this topic out in the open – address it, accept it & study it – so we can find out who is driving these things, as well as move forward in our own evolution. thephoenixlights

Lee Speigel, UFOs: All The News That's Fit To Paint -- From Cave Walls To Modern Reports To The United Nations And The Internet.  For as long as humans have wondered about the world around them, there have always been some sort of media organizations intent on sharing that news. The famous slogan of the New York Times, "All The News That's Fit To Print," is simply a more contemporary form of what was probably the first media motto, "All The News That's Fit To Paint," which is what our ancestors did on cave walls to depict the "news" that went on in their day -- news that included painting circular objects in the sky. It's clearly there, for us to see, on those well-preserved walls. How is the media doing these days regarding the credible reporting of UFO stories? Are we getting it right? Or are we contributing to the confusion and ridicule that still abounds in UFOlogy? I will present the stories of my own attempts at UFO disclosure, beginning with a unique documentary record album I produced and wrote for CBS Inc. in 1975 called "UFOs: The Credibility Factor." That will be a lead-in to the steps I took to get the attention of the United Nations in 1978 about UFOs -- opening a pathway to international UFO disclosure. I will also show how media -- the purveyors of news -- either just doesn't care about UFOs or doesn't know how to credibly deal with the unexplained objects still operating in our skies. Lee Speigel has presented UFO stories to the public since 1975, when he produced and wrote a documentary record album, “UFOs: The Credibility Factor,” for CBS Inc. It marked the first time that military and scientific voices came together to disclose their personal UFO encounters and to call for government recognition of the phenomenon. It was the first UFO product offered to the public via a TV 2-minute commercial, and was one of the few UFO items -- chosen by former Air Force Project Blue Book scientific consultant astronomer J. Allen Hynek -- offered in the renowned Edmund Scientific catalog.In 1978, Speigel’s second attempt at UFO disclosure took place on a world stage when he became the only person in history to produce a milestone presentation on UFOs at the United Nations.Also that year, he was the first to uncover written reports and hours of audio tapes at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., detailing a 1965 event where 12 UFOs flew all around Edwards Air Force Base in California in front of many military eyewitnesses. Speigel eventually wrote about the multiple UFO encounter for OMNI Magazine. Between 1978 and 1986, Speigel produced, wrote and hosted nearly 1,500 local and national programs on NBC Radio, dealing with UFOs and unexplained phenomena.In 1980, he was one of the first media reporters – through his NBC Radio features – to bring public awareness of the now-legendary 1947 Roswell, NM, UFO crash. Speigel produced and wrote, in 1993, "Lincoln's Music In America: The Classics In Space," a national award-winning one-hour classical music special, focusing on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Broadcast over the Concert Music Network, the program was co-hosted by astronomer Frank Drank, founder of the SETI Institute.Since 2010, Speigel has written hundreds of stories about UFOs and unexplained phenomena for The AOL-Huffington Post Media Group, and in 2012, he was honored as the International UFO Congress Researcher of the Year.

James Fox will be presenting on “UFO film making”
JAMES FOX (director) was born in England and raised in New York and California. He began his journalism career early in life as an assistant to father/writer Charles Fox, a quadriplegic with Multiple Sclerosis. Together they travelled on many magazine assignments from Roll­ing Stone, Car & Driver to Sports Illustrated. James finished and sold his first documentary to Discovery by the time he was 28. He has since completed 5 films for the likes of Sci-Fi, National Geographic and History Channel and has made frequent appearances on the Larry King Show, Night Line, Dateline, Anderson Cooper and many others. His latest film, I Know What I Saw is being distributed by A&E and Content Films International.
Documentarian James Fox provides a rare look into the making of UFO films, including the 2007 National Press Club event with Leslie Kean, what happens when you're in the backseat of  a TV production on a National TV show called National Geographic's "Chasing UFOs", as well as his latest UFO movie now in production called "701 The Movie". Come find out what he has to say about portraying UFOs without the silly factor in major Film and TV media. You don't want to miss this!  "People have always asked me why it is I do what I do and I respond with a question: if earth was being visited by extra-terrestrials and tangible evidence was being withheld from the general public, how significant would you consider that? Inevitably the answer from the majority, whether they believe it to be true or not, is that it would be the most significant discovery of our time. Well, after four films, a 2006 National Press Club event I organized with the help of Leslie Kean countless meetings with high-ranking military and government officials from around the globe, I'm now convinced it is. But I, as many others in the field, didn't start out believing. "
