Larry Arnold, Spontaneous Human Combustion, This is a difficult topic for most of us to deal with.  It is so easy to judge these reports on face value as impossible and not true. Yet after looking at the police reports, crime scene photos and first had experiences presented in this remarkable presentation I am sure you will be as stunned as I was when I learned the about the detailed research Larry Arnold has done. We are thrilled to be hosting special guest Larry Arnold.


Travis Walton- Fire in the Sky.

Driving home after a day of clearing brush in the forest, Travis and six other lumberjacks come upon a 40 foot disk hovering silently over the crest of a ridge. As if spellbound, Travis Walton jumps from the passenger side, running towards it for a closer look. That decision November 5, 1975 would change him and these loggers for the rest of their lives. The 21 year-old logger from Snowflake Arizona disappeared for five days, igniting a firestorm of controversy aimed at the logging crew who were the last to see him in the forest.  Travis will present an in-depth power point lecture about his experiences, his book and his research from the past 40 years of living with the truth. Travis Walton’s 1975 experience has been documented in a 93-minute documentary of trauma and transition when a mysterious beam of light strikes him unconscious – or dead. TRAVIS, a new film by Jennifer Stein combines new and archived interviews with the logging crew, police, and the polygraph examiner.


Colonel Charles I. Halt- Rendlesham.

Former Air Force Col. Charles Halt was deputy base commander at a joint British/American airbase, RAF Bentwaters, in 1980. Halt saw a disc-shaped UFO directing beam of light down to the ground near him. The Rendlesham Forest incident of late December 1980 occurred shortly afterwards, and he was an important witness to events on the second night of sightings. Col. Charles Halt, who, in December 1980, was the deputy base commander at joint British/American airbases, Bentwaters and Woodbridge, in the Rendlesham Forest in England. Over the course of several nights, UFO activity was high at the base, including reports of unidentified objects near the nuclear weapons storage area. Donald Moreland, the British Liason Officer, pressured Halt to report the UFO incident to Britainâ’s Ministry Of Defence. Eventually, on the 13th January 1981, Charles Halt typed a memorandum and sent it to the MOD with a covering letter from Moreland. The memorandum first surfaced in June 1983, after a Freedom of Information request from CAUS (Citizens Against UFO Secrecy who were only aware of Larry Warrens story at the time. When the document was finally released, CAUS forwarded a copy to one of their investigators, Robert Todd, who we assume began circulating the document. The Ministry of Defense never replied to Halt’s memorandum.
