DR. PETER RESTA will expand upon his thoughts of MSS 2014. This year’s conference features a return of some of our more popular speakers from past ‘MYSTERIES’ conferences who will update us about their work & research, along with several new names. We are especially excited to have Mr. STAN GORDON, the leading expert on the famous Kecksburg  “UFO” crash of 1965. What really crashed in that densely wooded area in Pennsylvania? Additionally, COL. CHARLES HALT (USAF; Retired)  has agreed to return and discuss his updated views of one of the most important events in UFO history: The Bentwaters incident of 1980! (NEW books & “revelations” have been put forth since Col. Halt’s last appearance….his opinion of same may be a surprise to many of us!)  Similarly, Mr. CARL FEINDT, arguably the nation’s leading expert on “underwater UFOs” will return & give us a preview of his revisions to his classic book, “UFOs and Water.” MUFON  Board Member ROB SWIATEK  (one of THE most knowledgeable & respected  UFOLOGISTS on the planet!) will offer his annual  up-to-date and detailed review of recent UFO activity (including the “best cases” of 2014), and discuss several ongoing efforts to obtain instrumental data on UFO sightings. A special welcome is extended to Mr. TADD BUFFINGTON, who will be making his first ‘MYSTERIES’ appearance. Mr. Buffington comes to us from NASA where he is the  Chief Solution Architect for that agency, and holds a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering (with an emphasis on space studies). Tadd has had unique contacts with astronauts & scientists who shared their insights about unidentified aerial phenomena. He will focus on the  “unexplained and explained space files,” and discuss the real areas of resistance to government acknowledgement of “alien” life. Tadd is now the Maryland and DC State Director for MUFON. Finally, Virginia MUFON State Director, Susan Swiatek, will report on a local case from a few years back — a most compelling instance of a possible abduction (which played a major role in shaping the views of Dr. David Jacobs). It involves a purported “nest” of abductions of a young Annapolis mother and her close friend, physical evidence, and hypnotic regression. This case ranks next to  the more well-known (Betty/Barney)  Hill and (Travis) Walton cases in terms of evidence & believability, and you are not likely to hear it presented in any other venue!  We are calling it THE AMAZING ANNAPOLIS ABDUCTION AFFAIR.

Clearly this conference is NOT TO BE MISSED!!!  As usual, door prizes will be given away (many courtesy of  ” the UFOstore.com”) as well as Ed Hruneni and the Swiateks. Ed will be entertaining us with something special at “Mysteries” in October — let me just say, put your UFO Trivia hats on.

RE: A lecture by Robert Hastings titled “UFOs: The Secret Story”

Where: Wicomico Room, Guerrieri University Center, Salisbury University
DATE/TIME: Friday, October 24, 2014 7:00 p.m.
No Admission Charge

“UFOs: The Secret Story” is a 90-minute lecture and slide show concerning the U.S. government’s covert response to UFOs, and is based on thousands of Air Force, FBI and CIA documents declassified via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), as well as the testimony of more than 140 former or retired U.S. military personnel interviewed by Hastings.The documents confirm, beyond a reasonable doubt, that UFOs do exist and, despite repeated public denials over the years by official spokesmen, these mysterious objects are of the greatest concern to the highest levels of the U.S. Air Force and the intelligence community. A number of the documents refer to UFOs repeatedly violating highly sensitive airspace over nuclear weapons sites, including the Los Alamos National Laboratory, where nuclear weapons are designed. Other documents concern UFOs hovering above nuclear missile launchers or nuclear bomb storage bunkers. Still others refer to attempted aerial intercepts of UFOs by military jet fighters. So far as is known, all of these attempts have been unsuccessful. Hastings appeared on CNN’s Larry King Live on July 18, 2008, together with former U.S. Air Force officers who had been involved in nuclear weapons-related UFO incidents. Two of them, missile launch officer Robert Salas and missile targeting officer Robert Jamison, say that an entire “flight” of ten Minuteman missiles mysteriously malfunctioned just as a UFO was sighted hovering above the flight’s launch control facility, outside of Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana, on March 24, 1967. Hastings has interviewed other Air Force missile personnel who describe identical events occurring at other Air Force missile bases. The King program is now on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIYpdBJxxdIOn September 27, 2010, Hastings sponsored the “UFOs and Nukes” press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., during which seven former or retired Air Force officers discussed the reality of UFO incursions at nuclear weapons sites. CNN streamed the event live; the full-length video with subtitles is on his website’s homepage:
