UFO Conference In Massachusetts
Friday, October 12Th, 2007 @ 7pm

Fascinating Presentations of Some Spectacular UFO cases

Boston, Mass. -- July 1, 2007 -- The Mass UFO Show, in conjunction
with Mass MUFON, is pleased to announce an exciting program for
its second annual rendition of New England's only UFO
conference, to be held at 7:00 PM on Friday, October 12th, 2007
at the Hibernian Hall in Watertown, Massachusetts.

Building upon the debut event in 2006 (that featured a
fascinating 40th anniversary presentation by Stan Gordon, lead
investigator of the Kecksburg, Pennsylvania UFO incident), the
2007 Mass UFO Show promises to host an exciting series of
lectures, presentations and exhibits dedicated to Unidentified
Flying Objects. Contrary to popular belief, UFO's are still
being reported daily and lack a sufficient explanation.

The theme for this rendition of the Mass UFO Show is 'Maritime
UFOs' or 'USOs', an acronym for 'Unidentified Submersible
Objects'. Independent researcher Chris Styles will be speaking
about the Shag Harbour UFO Incident. This will mark the 40th
anniversary of this unexplained event that rocked a sleepy
fishing village in Nova Scotia on the night of October 4th,
1967. Styles, who was 12 at the time and living in Halifax,
clearly recalls receiving a telephone call from his grandfather
(who was living in Shag Harbour at the time) that described the
ensuing panic. He'll also comment on the little-known Shelburne
incident that happened in tandem with the Shag Harbour case.

Author and researcher Don Ledger will be making a presentation
about 'Flying Black Triangles'. Ledger, who co-authored a book
entitled 'Dark Object' with Styles about the Shag Harbour
incident, will try to make sense of the ongoing 'flap' of flying
triangle reports. For over 25 years, there has been a global
wave of sightings of flying black triangles. Some have even been
seen in Massachusetts. Usually described as massive and silent,
these craft began appearing in Belgium in the and New York's
Hudson Valley in the 1980's and culminated in a spectacular
formation that was witnessed by thousands over Phoenix, Arizona
in 1997, subsequently dubbed the 'Phoenix Lights'. Some claim
that they are 'black' projects while others insist that they are
alien in origin. Ledger's expertise in Maritime UFOs (title of
his book) will dovetail nicely with the conference theme.

Crop Circles not only appear in grain fields in the United
Kingdom, but mysteriously emerge overnight on farms around the
globe. Widely regarded as a leading authority on this phenomena,
Nancy Talbott, of BLT Research, has exhaustively studied these
pictograms for decades. Some are blatant hoaxes whereas other
crop circles defy a logical explanation. Nancy has traveled all
over Europe and North America studying these anomalous
formations and will present a spectacular slide show on these
uncanny formations.

Recognized by his peers as the foremost authority on
Unidentified Submarine Objects is Delaware native and veteran
Carl Feindt. Carl has been investigating USOs for years and has
compiled the most comprehensive website on the Internet entitled
'Water UFOs'. Unidentified Submerged Objects were first widely
reported in the 19th century and continue to be encountered
today by mariners or people on shore. For if UFOs exist,  then
the ocean is
a great place to hide.

Sixty years ago, an unidentified flying object allegedly crashed
in Roswell, New Mexico. Since that time, flying saucers have
become a cottage industry for the dusty town of Roswell as they
celebrate the purported event annually with parades, merchandise
and a variety of pay-per-view alleged crash sites. Matt Moniz,
of Spookysouthcoast.com, attended the Roswell 60th Anniversary
celebration and had an opportunity to interview Jesse Marcel,
Jr., who allegedly handled some of the crash debris. Matt has
over 20 years experience investigating UFO phenomena and has had
may other paranormal adventures. He has a 'Forrest Gump'-type
litany of involvement with historical UFO case investigations.
As a chemist, he analyzed soil samples from the famed
'Bentwaters Incident' and was acknowledged accordingly in the
book =93Left at East Gate=94 by Larry Warren and Peter Robbins.
Matt's simple balloon crash demonstration video will give a
unique perspective as to why a weather balloon can't leave
wreckage scattered over a large area. He will also review the
original 1947 ABC radio broadcast, the Roswell 50th anniversary
witness panel video and newspapers of the day.

Massachusetts has a long history of UFO sightings, dating back
to 1639. A brief slide show about some prominent UFO reports in
the Bay State will be presented and witnesses will be provided
an opportunity to submit their sightings either publicly,
confidentially or via the Internet at:


to the Massachusetts Mutual UFO Network (Mass MUFON). It is
estimated the less than 1% of all UFO sightings are reported.

The venue is the historic Watertown Hibernian Hall, located at
151 Watertown Street in Watertown, Mass. Seating is limited, but
there is ample free parking. It is accessible by public

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and presentations begin at 6:45 PM.

Other events and activities will include a trivia contest,
prizes (including autographed New England Patriots and U.S.
Olympic Hockey souvenirs), concessions, exhibits and a Q&A
session. There will be an admission fee of $25.00. Tickets are
limited and may not be sold at the door. They can be obtained
