Our Next San Jose Guest Speaker will be..
Author, journalist and TV personality Nick Pope used to run the British Government's UFO project at the Ministry of Defense. Initially skeptical, his research and investigation into the UFO phenomenon and access to classified government files on the subject soon convinced him that the phenomenon raised important defense and national security issues, especially when the witnesses were military pilots, or where UFOs were tracked on radar.
While working on the MoD's UFO project Nick Pope also looked into alien abductions, crop circles, animal mutilations, remote viewing and ghosts. He's now recognized as a leading authority on UFOs, the unexplained and conspiracy theories. He does extensive media work, lectures all around the world and has acted as presenter, consultant or contributor on numerous TV and radio shows.
Nick Pope will be speaking about his government work on UFOs and in particular about the UK's best-known UFO sighting, which is the subject of his new book, Encounter in Rendlesham Forest. In 1980, a UFO was tracked on military radar over Rendlesham Forest, in England. It landed near two of the most strategically important military bases in NATO, and was approached by military witnesses, one of whom touched the hull. This explosive new book tells the full story of this incident, which is set to become better-known than Roswell. Written by Nick Pope and the two US Air Force witnesses at the heart of the encounter, John Burroughs and Jim Penniston, this book reveals the first-hand witnesses' full stories for the first time and is supported by numerous formerly-classified documents, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. The inside story of these events and their aftermath will change people’s perceptions about the UFO mystery and about the true role played by government, the military and the intelligence agencies. It's the only UFO book ever to have required security clearance from both the US and the UK governments.

Nicholas Roesler, Author/UFO Researcher, wrote his recent book titled, “In Focus”. Nicholas will donate some of his proceeds as a fundraiser to our MUFON South Bay chapter. Books are on sale for $15 at the meeting.
"In Focus" is a thorough investigation of many landmark UFO sightings. The book presents a series of case studies spanning from the 1940s through the early twenty-first century, viewed through the lens of forensic science. The author is the staff photographer for the Mutual UFO Network(MUFON). He analyzes cases that have been thoroughly documented over the past nearly 70 years and vetted by the scientific community, including experts from the field of aeronautics, physics, photographic analysis, and meteorology, up to and including the NASA space program. This is, in effect, a user's manual for the correct methodology in applying photography to the study of UFOs.
