Fox Television Group has just announced a possible re-boot of “The X-Files” series, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson coming back to portray Mulder and Scully. Must. Not. Explode. With. Joy.
The 2014 New Mexico UFO Conference will be held in Rio Rancho, NM next month. Not only does it feature some pretty awesome UFO-book authors as speakers, the evening will end with an after-dark field trip to a “secret” air base near Albuquerque to witness mysterious test flights. Not sure how secret the Manzano-Sandia testing facility can be if I know about it, but I still want to go. 🙂
New Mexico: Come for the Hatch chilies, stay for the UFO lectures.
I was in my backyard last Thursday night (08/28/14) wrangling dogs, when I saw the proverbial “lights in the sky.” At first, I thought it was the moon until I realized that the moon was shining in the sky behind me. I was standing there in the dark, completely transfixed by this thin crescent of light glowing against the night sky. Suddenly, it shrank down into a single orb of intense light and… vanished.
I stood there for a full minute afterward, completely unnerved and wondering if I had just had my first UFO sighting. I was half stoked and half freaked out.
Tragically – for me, at least – there is evidence that what I witnessed was most likely the perihelion of a rare comet called Comet 289/Blanpain. Which is pretty disappointing. If you’re going to witness a mysterious comet, you’re really hoping it will be named something more dramatic, like Frankenstein Thunderhammer or Blaze Destiny’Boom. *Sigh*
Professor Frink: “That comet is headed straight for us, with the fire and the impact and the 100% chance of pain… pain in the glavin!”
Note: Blaze Destiny’Boom is officially now my stripper name.
I am equal parts skeptical and stoked about the upcoming documentary Aliens on the Moon: The Truth Exposed, airing tomorrow night (Sunday, July 20) on the SyFy Channel.
On one hand, it does feature commentary from Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Edgar Mitchell, as well as rare mission photos purporting to show evidence of structures and crafts on the lunar surface.
But on the other hand, the show was produced by Robert Kiviat. This is the man who brought us the absurdity that was Alien Autopsy, the “documentary” from 1995 that was so poorly faked I expected it to have blooper reels.
Oh, who am I kidding? They had me at “aliens.”
On July 8, 1947, the Roswell Daily Record startled the nation with a bold headline.
And then the cover-up began.
