What is UFO Reality?
This year marks 70 years since the advent of the modern era of UFOs into our awareness as a society. How have we been changed? What has this awareness done to how we perceive our world? What comes next?
James Clarkson, WA State Director of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) explores these vital questions in a presentation that represents a culmination of all he has learned from 30-plus years of investigating UFOs. The foundation of Clarkson’s UFO perspective is based upon the four major elements that combine in a variety of ways to result in our perception of UFO reality: the Public, the Media, the Government and the Visitors.
This presentation will include recent radar and visual cases from Washington State, new insights into a classic police-UFO pursuit case, and will provide perspectives for evaluating UFOs reported in the 21st Century from the perspective from an experienced detective sergeant, state fraud investigator and UFO researcher.
