The 10th Annual UNO MUFON UFO Society's Symposium is this Friday. It will feature lectures on the investigations, science and history around UFO's and paranormal history. Along with the Nebraska Mutual UFO Network, local groups taking part include the Omaha UFO Study Group and Omaha/Bellevue CSETI.
Kyle Finley is the organizer and founder of the UNO MUFON Study Group and says their goal is to research reported cases using logical and scientific methods. With that, they have been busy. Finley tells NewsRadio 1110 KFAB, "We have actually seen a spike in UFO reports. I think in the last six months we have had twelve of them. That is more than what we normally see in an entire year for the state of Nebraska."
David Pares is an adjunct professor of geography and meteorology at UNO and the group's faculty advisor. He says, "We like to have fun and are open to exploring all kinds of evidence."
Topics will range from abductions, "Ufology", space warp dynamics to President Nixon and the extraterrestrials. It starts at 6 p.m. in room 101 at the CPAC Building at UNO and runs through 10 p.m. on Friday, May 10th. There is a UFO Sky Watch to follow. General admission is $10 and it is open to the public. Parking is free on campus.
