UFOs & Aerial Phenomena
Joining Colm Kelleher tonight is George Knapp, an Emmy Award-winning journalist whose groundbreaking investigation of the Area 51 military base was selected by UPI as Best Individual Achievement by a Reporter in 1989. Currently, he's the chief of KLAS-TV's I-Team, and in that capacity he's continued to report on unusual stories, such as the 'Skinwalker Ranch', Dan Burisch, Bob Lazar and other topics.
Taking place through tomorrow is the annual Roswell UFO Festival featuring a variety of speakers and events. Alas, it looked as though the use of two military helicopters for a planned "alien invasion" had to be put on hold, because the choppers were placed on standby to help fight wildfires in the area.

On June 5, 2005, Brian Bessent of Ufotheatre.com claims to have witnessed a series of unidentified lights in the Phoenix sky. Using a Sony Handycam in nightshot mode, he captured on tape several of the flying objects as they joined into a larger formation of lights.
Paul Stonehill has sent us some UFO photos as part of his presentation. Some of them are featured in UFO USSR, which he co-wrote with Philip Mantle and is currently available (as an e-book) through the Filament Book Club.
In Dr. Roger Leir's recently released book, UFO Crash in Brazil, he looks at the noted Varginha case. The 1996 incident has been dubbed the 'Brazilian Roswell,' due to its sighting of alien beings. This page provides images related to the case, while a write-up is presented here.

Bob White shared details about a UFO artifact he said he retrieved in 1985. While driving with a companion to Las Vegas, they encountered a bright yellow-orange light on a Colorado highway. The light rose in the sky and seemed to merge with a craft with two blue tubular lights and then ejected a small object that appeared to be on fire, he said.

Late one evening in 2002 I was camping inside Haleakala Crater with a friend, whom I have been camping, sky gazing and looking for ships with for nearly 40 years. We were treated with a visit from afar. We were surprised to have such a close visitation and to be able to record the experience via digital camera (view photos here). This was not the first visitation or sighting in this volcano we've had. We have been watchdogs onthis mountain since the early 60's.
As presented on the 11/2/03 show: Art Bell: Let's say the government chose me. They were going to use me as an outlet to release this information. Let's just say they did that and they took me to a briefing. Then what John?John Lear: They whisk you to Washington, DC, you get limo-ed to this building, beautiful building, you go up into this room. They say, 'Art, you're the guy and if you give us the go ahead, we are gonna release everything we know to the public. If you decide to go ahead, all major networks will be provided with information on all aspects of the cover up and no type of information will be withheld.
Speaking at this past weekend's Bay Area UFO Expo, (and guesting tonight on C2C) was Jason Martell, who has studied Planet X theories and ancient artifacts. One of the few younger researchers at the Expo, the black-clad Martell gave a slick Power Point presentation that showed images which could bolster the Ancient Astronaut hypothesis.
Tonight's guest, Richard Lawrence, co-wrote the book Contacts With the Gods from Space, with the late Dr. George King, which details King's amazing legacy of extraterrestrial contacts. Born in Shropshire, England in 1919, King became an adept practitioner of yoga as a young man, spending hours each day in the activity. But in 1954, sitting in his London apartment he suddenly heard a disembodied voice that commanded him: "Prepare yourself! You are to become the voice of Interplanetary Parliament." It was an alien intelligence he would come to know as Aetherius. A few days later King received a visit from a famed Yoga master who entered and left through a locked door. The master reportedly taught King to establish a mental rapport with the "Cosmic Masters."
