Who are they? Why are they here? What do they want? 

They have been with us for all of recorded history yet we do not know them.
They have interfered in ancient battles and surveil our modern warships. Their technology can shut down our nukes and outrun our fastest jets. They have reportedly killed and they have healed. They kidnap us only to release us.
Are they E.T.? Time Travelers?  Inter-dimensionals? Or something else?
Most importantly, what do they want?
Come and find out!

2023 MUFON Symposium Keynote Speaker:

David Paulides

Missing 411 The UFO Connection

After investigating people who have disappeared in the forests and national parks of North America,

David’s research has developed compelling information on the relationship between UFOs with missing people.

A Wyoming hunter disappears and is eventually found with profound physical changes. A Hunting guide tells a story to his girlfriend being followed out of the woods by a UFO in the same forest as the hunter that was abducted.

A massive archive search of this region identifies a series of missing hunters, all were German.

David’s perseverance to uncover facts related to these missing people is an impressive data point in UFO abduction research.

If you want to hear extremely interesting speakers covering a wide spectrum of topics related to the phenomenon, then you should definitely participate in the 2023 MUFON Symposium! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the range of topics covered in prior Symposiums from the hard science to the esoteric, and, from current developments to historical research. The Symposiums have offered wonderful opportunities to interact with speakers, MUFON members and notable persons working in these fields. Don’t miss the educational sessions for experiences, field investigations and photographic analysis……I’ve found them really helpful, informative and fun!
