Picture of Israel and Lakita at Discovery Place.

On Friday March 18th, MUFON-NC participated in the "Final Frontier" event at Charlotte's Discovery Place Science Museum.  NC PR Director, Israel Curiel and I set up a MUFON information table, and UFO slide show containing the best documented photos from the past and present.

There were over 2000 in attendance for the Science/Science Fiction-themed evening, aimed at the 21+ age group.   There was much interest, and there were lots of questions about what MUFON does.  Most of the visitors to our table had no idea there was an organization that receives UFO sighting reports, and investigates them.

The event was a unique opportunity to engage the public in conversations about the UFO subject, and advance awareness of MUFON's research and goals.  Presenting UFO information at a science museum probably doesn't happen very often, so we welcomed the chance to participate, when we received the invitation. 

Given the popularity of Science Fiction, the "Final Frontier" event was an effective way to combine Science and Sci-Fi.  It was also a lot of fun, and in the spirit of the evening, I wore my non-official Starfleet uniform. 

We discussed the possibility of future UFO programs at Discovery Place, with the education program co-ordinator.   We look forward to more opportunities to share MUFON information, in engaging, interactive venues like the museum.

Are you aware that the Central Intelligence Agency has performed UFO investigations in the past? It seems that times are changing if this secretive group has published documents on how to perform a UFO investigation on their website. Should we expect the release of other important information? Even if they don't publish any findings this just goes to show how interested the US government is in UFO.

On Saturday November 7th 2015 a mysterious light was seen over San Diego CA. Many people saw and recorded the incident. A military spokesmain said it was a test of a Trident II (D5) missle. Read the full article at http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/2015/nov/07/mystery-light-sky-military-navy-drill/. Here is one of the captured videos 

This seemed strange to me. Why would the military test a missle near a populated areas. I also wondered wouldn't you hear something if it was a missle? Then I decided to find a video recording of an actual night time missle test. Watch the video below and you decide if they look similar.

 Many people that follow events in UFOlogy are familiar with Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell and his outspoken stance on UFOs.  The conservative Fox New website recently published an article where Dr. Mitchell talks about his knowledge of the events that have happend at nuclear missile facilities.

If you haven't heard MUFON has partnered up with The History Channel to create the TV series called Hanger 1. You can view the latest episode at http://www.history.com/shows/hangar-1-the-ufo-files/videos/ufos-at-war. The producers have do a great job of presenting the information and MUFON has provided the best documented cases. Take some time and watch a few of the episodes. We are hopeful that even more people will come forward to corroborate the cases.

 Involving the academic community in UFO education is challenging.  When I was invited to speak at Greensboro Technical Community College, I was excited and encouraged that they had an interest in this subject.  There were about 200 attendees at the lecture, including faculty, students, and local residents.  After the lecture, I met with some teachers and department chair persons, and discussed a structured Ufology class for college campuses. 

I'm hopeful that other colleges will have the vision, and courage to consider presenting information about the UFO subject.                Lakita Adams  SD NC MUFON

Last month, NC State Director Lakita Adams recorded an interview with Alejandro Rojas, for the Openminds UFO radio podcast.  With many sightings along the coast, there has been elevated interest in NC as one of those UFO "hotspots".  A compelling video from the Wilmington area has received national attention, and has top photo experts in disagreement about what the craft is.  You can read the article about the "see-through" UFO caught on a night vision camera, and listen to the podcast at:
