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”) 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. Registration & Details:     or contact Peter Resta at
