- Nov 4, 2005November 2005
Welcome to the November 2005 round up of news and views on UFOs, alien
abductions, crop circles, ghosts, the paranormal, the unexplained, the
weird and the wonderful.
Italian UFO Conference
I have recently returned from Italy where I spoke at a UFO conference held
at the University of Calabria. Organised by highly respected Italian
ufologist Roberto Pinotti, the conference was an interesting mix of SETI,
ufology and exopolitics. Accordingly, speakers ranged from Alexander
Zaitsev and Claudio Maccone through to Monsignor Corrado Balducci and
Michael Salla. For me, it was a nice opportunity to catch up with old
friends such as Budd Hopkins and Roger Leir, among others.
Threshold is an exciting new sci-fi show that is getting a lot of people
talking. The lead character is a worst-case scenario planner, paid to
think the unthinkable. When an unidentified object enters the atmosphere
and encounters a trawler, she puts together a mixed team of experts and
investigates. With the crew either dead or missing, and with strange
events occurring on the mainland, time is running out. Watch out for more
about this exciting new series, already running on CBS in America, and
airing on Sky One in the UK, from November.
The Real 4400
The 4400 is another UFO-related sci-fi series still running and still
attracting a lot of interest and comment, with its story of 4400 abductees
who are returned to Earth with strange powers. The Real 4400 is a
documentary I was involved in, focusing on the alien abduction mystery. It
aired on Sky One on October 19, but is being repeated. The 4400 itself
continues to run on the USA network in America and on Sky One in the UK.
The Science of Aliens
A new exhibition called The Science of Aliens has recently opened at the
Science Museum. The exhibition covers a wide range of areas, including
SETI and speculation as the what alien life might be like, but includes
some material about UFOs and alien abductions. Check out
http://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/aliens/ for details of the exhibition. I
took part in a debate organised as part of this event and am doing some
other work to help promote the exhibition. This is a welcome opportunity to
Nick Pope Interview Online
I gave one of the most extensive and wide-ranging interviews I have given
in recent years on the Ministry of Defence UFO Project to Astraea Magazine
& Web Radio. This forms part of a growing archive of interviews on a wide
range of paranormal, mysterious and esoteric subjects, ranging from UFOs
and Freemasonry through to Jack the Ripper. Check out
http://www.astraeamagazine.com/radio.php for details of the interviews and
http://www.astraeamagazine.com/ for details of the magazine.
Laughlin UFO Conference
The 15th Annual International UFO Congress will be held in Laughlin,
Nevada, from February 26 - March 4, 2006. This really is the biggest UFO
conference in the world, and speakers include Jim Marrs, Dolores Cannon,
William Hamilton, Donald Ware and many more besides. Check out
www.ufocongress.com for the details.
UFO Conference in Hawaii
One of the most beautiful and exotic locations in the world will play host
to a UFO conference next year. Organised by Michael Salla, the event will
focus on exopolitics and will feature speakers such as Alfred Webre, Paola
Harris and Salla himself. The conference lasts from June 9 - 11, 2006.
