WORLD-CLASS UFO EXPERTS SPEAK IN EDINBURG
Highlights from the 2019 Edinburg UFO Conference & Festival:
DONALD R. SCHMITT
Donald R. Schmitt worked with the legendary Dr. J. Allen Hynek as one of his special investigators. A former director of the Hynek Center for UFO Studies and its director of special investigations for ten years, Donald is one of the world’s top experts on the U.S. Air Force’s “Project Blue Book” and its chief scientist (Hynek), as featured on the new History Channel series “Project Blue Book.” We were delighted to bring this legendary UFO researcher to Edinburg! Donald Schmitt is also an expert on the world-renowned Roswell UFO Crash of 1947, having written a number of authoritative books about that incident.
On the evening of October 11, 1973, two fishermen, Calvin Parker and the late Charles Hickson, were fishing off a pier on the west bank of the Pascagoula River in Mississippi when they saw a brightly-glowing UFO descend from the sky and hover near them. Three unearthly beings came out of the object, paralyzed them, and took them aboard. On April 6 in Edinburg, Calvin Parker told a spellbound audience exactly what happened! Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the world’s foremost UFO expert at the time, interviewed Parker and Hickson, concluding that the men were, “Absolutely honest. They have had a fantastic experience.”
The Rendlesham Forest UFO Incident is one of the world’s best known UFO cases and has been called “Britain’s Roswell.” In late December 1980, both military personnel and civilians reported seeing unexplained lights near Rendlesham Forest in Suffolk, England, followed by multiple reports of UFOs hovering and landing. The events occurred just outside British air force base Woodbridge, which was used at the time by the United States Air Force. Air Force personnel, including deputy base commander Lieutenant Colonel Charles Halt, stated that they saw UFOs in the forest around the base. On April 6 in Edinburg, Colonel Halt made a rare public appearance to speak about what he saw in the forest during this world-famous UFO incident.
British UFO researcher Nick Redfern is one of the world’s top authors on UFOs and the paranormal. An expert on UFO abduction cases, Nick spoke in Edinburg about his new book “Top Secret Alien Abduction Files: What the Government Doesn’t Want You to Know.” Nick opened up the truth about top secret government files about UFO cases!
Ben Moss of the History Channel TV series “Hangar 1: The UFO Files,” is a chief UFO investigator for the Mutual UFO Network and a member of a task force that responds quickly to major UFO events that occur in America. An acknowledged expert on many of the best known UFO cases in history, Ben brought to Edinburg an amazing presentation about one of the world’s best documented UFO cases – the Socorro (New Mexico) Incident.
Another top UFO investigator for the Mutual UFO Network who has appeared on the TV series “Hangar 1: The UFO Files,” Tony Angiola has been investigating UFOs since the early 1990s and brought the results of his long career of UFO research to our audience in Edinburg.
