21st UFO Conference – Arizona
February 25, 2012 - Saturday
8:00-9:00 – Experiencer’s Session: Yvonne Smith and other hypnotherapists work with a group of UFO Experiencers and abductees. I spoke with one of the Experiencers who said that the group flowered from 25-30 people into 75 people. This woman, who wishes to remain unnamed, said to me that her family had several visitations throughout her lifetime and it wasn’t until her Mother was on her deathbed did she disclose that she herself had a contact with the Zeta race.

Ben Hansen – Fact of Faked
Interplay of Media, Technology, Hollywood and Validating Evidence of ET Contact
Modern technology can be our best friend or our worst enemy when it comes to reporting UFO phenomenon. There have been some incredible hoaxes showing up in the form of videos, photos and voice media. Viral video hoaxes through UTUBE and other faked events makes it difficult to weed out the real cases from the well-hoaxed cases.
Ben discussed how Hollywood has also prepared us on a global scale to accept the possibility of non-humanoid races. Are we being prepared here or deceived? Will disclosure be brought about and shared by capturing events on video or through mass sightings. Ben Hansen has a show called, Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files on the SyFy channel, sounds like a good watch.
10:30 – 10:15
Whitley Strieber – Solving the Communion Enigma

Ricardo Bermudez – Chile’s Official UFO Agency
The Chilean Air Force General (Ret.) Ricardo Bermudez is the Director of the Committee of Studies of Anomalous Serial Phenomenon (CEFAA). General Bermudez has also been the Director of the Chilean government’s official organization for the study of unknown Arial phenomena. General Bermudez is a former fighter pilot and served as an air attaché in London, and commanded the Third Air Brigade in southern Chile.
The CEFFAA collects data from both military and commercial pilots. For example in November of 2003 a B 737-200 almost collided with a triangular formation of luminous spheres! It was reported to CEFFAA and an investigation was started. Mr. Bermudez said there should also be an exchange of data between countries between political and civilian groups.
2:30 – 3:45
Dr. Steven Greer – Contact: Countdown to Transformation
Doctor Greer was one of the more interesting speakers at this conference. He spoke very clearly and deliberately. Dr. Greer leads multiple expeditions every year to train groups in how to make peaceful contact with extraterrestrial civilizations! Imagine it is not how to get along with your husband, no, and it’s not about how to get along with your friends or co-workers…
it’s about how to get along and communicate with aliens. The means and methods are unusual but he said undeniable. With extraordinary videos and audio clips from these expeditions,
Dr. Greer shares with the audience how this relationship has been developing over time and the implications for further contact.
4:00 – 6:00pm
Colin Andrews – Crop Circles: Mirror Image of the World Events and Human Behavior
Colin Andrews is the man who coined the phrase, “crop circle” in the mid-80’s when the circles started appearing in the UK. He has spent three decades studying them. He had an un-fortunate turn of events 3 years ago when he had to admit the up to 80% of crop circles were in fact hoaxes and made by human beings. He told the audience that his very reputation was in question and was one of the lowest points in his life. “Colin Andrews was being called a liar and that didn’t sit well with my soul”.
While being funded by Laurance Rockerfeller to undertake a look at crop circles, Andrews announced that the two year investigation had shown approximately 80% of the crop circles in the UK during that time were man-made, while 20% were left unsolved. Dr. Greer shared with us how this impacted him and his wife and future scouting of crop circles. He now believes that even some of the man-made circles might come from a “higher source” as some people do not know why they make the circles, they just do.
7:30 – Closing – Banquet & Film Festival Awards Ceremony
It was a fantastic evening with an Italian buffet being served with desserts and a lot of white and red wine on each table. Again, a great deal of conversation and networking was going on.
I managed to wolf down my food when I realized it was time to interview Mr. Travis Walton.
Abductee Travis Walton and Johanne Robichaud at UFO Conference 2012
He was an average height man in his early 50’s with slightly tinge of red-hair. He was quiet And unassuming. Apparently, he used to be even more shy and uneasy with the public. Tonight though he seemed completely relaxed with my interviewing him with his feet up on A post and leaning back in a chair. My full interview with Travis will follow but for this Daily report I will outline what we talked about.
Travis is a logger in Arizona. He feels most comfortable with this role. He and his logger friends were out one night in the forest of Arizona when they encountered a UFO in the forest.
Travis was hit in the head by a beam of light. This knocked him out cold. When he came to
He was onboard the spacecraft. One of the loggers, Stephen said “The light of the UFO looked absolutely beautiful, it occurred to me that it may be the end of the world.” Travis was brought onboard while the rest of the 6 loggers dispersed and disappeared in the woods.
They did go back to look for Walton but he was nowhere to be seen. They all feared the worst and to make this situation even worse for them was the real possibility of them being investigated for the murder of the missing man, Travis Walton.
Travis was gone 5 days in total and he has only approximately 10-12 minutes of recollection of his abduction time. He first realized onboard the craft that he was with the Grey race approximately 3-4 foot tall. He felt complete panic and mental anguish over this and tried to
Resist them. They went to get a taller alien who resembled more of a humanoid look. This alien tried to calm Travis down and he calls a mask being put over his face that knocked him out. When Travis came to 5 days later, he found himself on the side of the road near a phone booth….as he joked with the audience, “That damn telephone booth is still there but there’s no phones in ‘em.” He placed his first call to his brother-in-law who came to get him right away.
After a few days, Travis underwent a hypnosis regression with a doctor to recall his events.
I will present this and Travis’ outlook on his abduction in my full report from Travis.
Tonight was the awards for Lifetime Achievement which went to Colin Andrews for his 30 years of investigation into Crop Circles. One of his last statements to us was that he feels that contact is immanent and that we as a humanity should get ready for the messages. The other person who also said they felt that contact was immanent was Jamie Maussan.
The Best Film Award went to Director Ron James and Christopher O’Brien and Jennifer Stein for the film entitled: “It Could Happen Tomorrow” The Best Documentary also went to “It Could Happen Tomorrow”.
It Could Happen Tomorrow is about the history of the truth embargo, the church’s role in the disclosure and what the real social and spiritual implications of such a historic moment would bring.
