|Art Champoux has been an UFO investigator since 1964. He has worked with Ray Fowler, Walter Webb, John Keel, a lady that he can not name, and several different UFO groups. In the 1960s he was with APRO, CAPER, NIACP, then when APRO went out he was with NICAP and then APRO, Now he is with MUFON. The world of the paranormal has always fascinated him as even as a small boy he had some eerie happenings. His Great grandmother was a spirit medium so maybe he has inherited something. He is a hypnotist and has written for several publications and his leanings are much like John Keels. He beleives there is an ultra force, not from outer space, but much like John's and even Jaques Vallees' contention...we are but one dimension out of many that reign on this planet.

From before the pilgrims to the 20th century New England has been a hot bed of unexplained paranormal activities.
The landing of the Pilgrims
UFOs have assaulted the Bridgewater triangle and the Dover Demon, both in Massachusetts, and the whole area of New England since the 1960s. The first ever photo of a UFO in the United States over Mount Washington in the 1860s New England has also had its share of paranormal sightings.
To this day New England has had its share of all forms of extra abnormal entities and events from another planes of existence, or has it?
The Salem witch trials were as a result of witches having encounters and séances with the devil. There are no towns left spared by reports of witches, spooks, ghosts or even phantom cats or dogs. Even Lake Champlain in Vermont near the Canadian border has its own Lake monster in its waters.
The 1800s were no exception either. Like I said the first known picture of a UFO was taken over Mount Washington in the late 1860s. Bigfoot as well as and flying pterodactyls have been seen since the 1600s.
New Hampshire has had its own version of these events and haunting. Ghosts are even in the towns of New Hampshire seacoast. Portsmouth New Hampshire has its haunted cemeteries. Also Dover, New Hampshire has its share of ghosts.
One person who died in the 1600s had been seen about eight miles away from the gravesite! It can be seen sometimes walking on hot summer nights in the downtown area!
Remember that New England and other states down the coastline to Philadelphia were the first colonies to become the United States. These colonies were productive and thrived because of hard work and trade with the Indians. Local tribes would share their myths and tales of what there ancestors have witnessed.
