Former high-ranking government and military officials say phenomenon is real

008-06-26 07:51:48 - The United States is not alone when it comes to UFO sightings and evidence. Military and government officials, pilots and aviation specialists from around the globe are now coming forward with results of investigations documenting military and aviation encounters with UFOs. Beginning July 25th, the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) - the United State's largest and most respected UFO investigative organization - will host some of these experts presenting their remarkable discoveries.

For the first time in the US, General Wilfried De Brouwer (Ret.) of the Belgium Air Force will report on his official investigation into a 'UFO wave' from 1989 to 1991. Evidence included one extraordinary, close-up photograph of a triangular object with four bright lights - perhaps the most striking and evidential picture of a UFO ever taken. Despite GeneralDe Brouwer's inquiries to the US military and NATO, no explanation for the origin or nature of the Belgium UFOs was found.

Nick Pope, former officer responsible for the UK's Ministry of Defense UFO investigations, will make his first appearance here since the release of the official British UFO files, which made international headlines. Chilean Army Captain Rodrigo Bravo, working in cooperation with Chile's FAA, will report on current cases affecting aviation safety, and former senior NASA research scientist Richard Haines will reveal the results of three decades studying the potential adverse affects of unidentified aerial phenomena on aircraft. Anthony Choy of Peru is bringing stunning videos of his research into UFOs conducted in 2001 - 2003 for the Peruvian Air Force.

MUFON was created in 1969 to pursue the scientific study of UFOs for the benefit of humanity through investigations, research, and education. It has become the largest civilian UFO investigation organization in the US with hundreds of certified investigators across the country actively researching UFO reports. For more information, go to
