Hot on the heels of the Roswell UFO Festival, the 39th International UFO Conference is coming to San Jose. Just head north on 285, hang a left where you see La Llorona, bear right past the howling Chupacabras, then a hard right at the Vaudeville Express Melodrama Musical Theatre in Bakersfield, then come in for a smooth landing near the Winchester Mystery House.
But seriously, folks, much of the programming looks fascinating. Check out workshops like “Radiation Site Surveying,” “Physical Evidence Collection and Scientific Data,” “Dealing With the Media,” “Historic and Current UFO Cases in Turkey,” “Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon [sic] and Aviation Safety,” and more. Best of all, attend the Field Investigator Trainings given by Budd Hopkins, head of the Intruders Foundation and probably the most prominent researcher into abduction phenomena.
MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, was founded in 1969 as the Midwest UFO Network, partially in response to the US Air Force closing its UFO research endeavor, Project Blue Book. It started its annual symposia in 1970.
