Due to a lack of sponsors, the Laredo UFO Conference is temporarily on hold. We hope that, at some point in the near future, a business or organization in Laredo will pick up the tradition and carry it forward. Be sure to check back here for the latest information that will be posted here in the near future. We are looking for sponsors – if your group or organization would like to be a part of this incredible event, please contact us. Visit our “Be a Sponsor” page.
Texas UFO Museum & Research Library Opens!We are happy to announce the grand opening of the Texas UFO Museum & Research Library web site at http://TexasUFOmuseum.com. There is no brick-and-mortar museum yet, but the online version of the museum is the first step toward establishing an actual, physical museum to house information about the state’s most noteworthy UFO cases. When you visit the museum, you will see eye-opening information about how UFOs, despite getting minimal media attention, have been a very important part of Texas history dating back to the 1800s. In fact, a UFO sighting by a Dallas-area farmer in 1878 is recognized as being the first instance of the word “saucer” being used to describe a UFO. The term “flying saucer” did not “officially” enter our vocabulary until 1947 – but there it was in Dallas-area newspapers way back in 1878. The Texas UFO Museum features exhibits about all the major UFO cases from 1878 to the present, including the Lubbock Lights, Stephenville, the Del Rio UFO Crash, the Levelland sightings, the Cash-Landrum case, and many, many more! Be sure to visit the museum’s web site today!
