Dr. S. Peter Resta

Dr. S. Peter Resta

Welcome and Keynote

Dr. Resta has had a lifelong fascination with UFOs and psychology. His psychological studies culminated in his earning a PhD, enabling him to maintain a clinical counseling practice as well as a teaching career at several institutions of higher learning in the state of Maryland. His two passions have come together, as he has been able to hold numerous one-day UFO seminar classes at various community colleges, as well as develop an advanced psychology course at UMBC (University of Maryland at Baltimore County) on critical thinking and the paranormal. Whether it's the Pasgagoula, Mississippi abduction case, the Coyne helicopter case, or the latest mass sighting, Dr. Resta continues to argue that psychological theories simply cannot explain away the best cases. Come hear his latest insights.


Scott & Suzanne Ramsey

The Aztec Incident: Recovery at Hart Canyon

Authors and researchers, Scott and Suzanne Ramsey were brought together by the Aztec Incident and went on to write their fascinating book, The Aztec Incident: Recovery at Hart Canyon. Scott started his quest in the 1980's, initially believing he would be able to prove the incident either fact or fiction within six months. Now, almost 25 years later, the couple presents to the public their findings about the 1948 disc recovery. Since their marriage the Ramseys have traveled to 26 states, gathering documentation, interviewing witnesses and searching archives for secrets relating to Aztec. Scott's 30 years in the electrical magnetic industry and Suzanne's background in media have led them to explore areas previously unseen, including 55,000+ related documents. The entire focus of their research has been dedicated to documenting history using facts. What they prove in this book changes history. The "Aztec Incident" has been the subject of television documentaries in Germany, Japan, the US (History Channel) and Canada. It has been the subject of a full-length feature documentary by International Journalist Jaime' Maussan. Check their book out here.

Mack Maloney

UFOs in Wartime: What They Didn't Want You To Know

Mack Maloney grew up in the Dorchester area of Boston. His father was a World War II veteran and avid reader of military books. As a child, Mack began reading these books too, along with UFO books and publications. Mack received a BS in journalism and a graduate degree in filmmaking from Emerson College. He was a sports reporter for 2 years before becoming a publicist for General Electric Company. Mack started writing books in 1984, and has been at it full-time since 1987, penning more than 40 titles, mostly in the area of military fiction. UFOs in Wartime: What They Didn't Want You To Know, (Penguin Books), is Mack's first non-fiction book in 20 years. It examines approximately 70 incidents of military encounters with UFOs from 1909 to 1998, the majority of witnesses being U.S. Air Force & Navy pilots in the midst of combat. Many UFO debunkers, as well as the U.S. military, claim that UFO sightings are almost always misidentified aerial phenomena or the result of hoaxes. But Mack contends highly trained combat pilots would recognize aerial phenomena when they saw it, and they would not perpetrate a hoax while in the middle of battle; furthermore UFO sightings spike in times of war or when the world is preparing to go to war. Mack interviewed UFO researchers, members of the U.S. military & intelligence communities and took 3 years to compile his research. He says the results prove the U.S. government knows more about UFOs than it's letting on. "In 1948, the Air Force's own investigators concluded UFOs were real," Mack says. "But the Pentagon immediately ordered them to rewrite their conclusions. A few months later, these same investigators began to debunk all UFO sightings. That's when the cover-up started. That cover-up still exists today." Check out an interview of him here. Mack is also an accomplished musician (synthesizer), releasing a CD with his band Sky Club in 2010. Not surprisingly for author Maloney, the CD tells a story, like the concept albums of yesteryear: A marooned space mariner, heartsick on an unknown planet, listens to music on his iPod to keep sane and hopeful for another day. The haunting treatment of both original and cover songs will keep you guessing; at both the plight of the spaceman as well as what genre Sky Club fits into. Members of the ensemble have played with Paul McCartney, Elvis Costello, Don Henley, Billy Joel, and Robert Palmer, among others.


James B.

A Police Officer Recalls the
Summer of 1975 UFO Wave

James is a retired Virginia Beach Master Police Officer and holds a bachelors degree in criminal justice. In July of 1975, he and a fellow officer witnessed five sphere-shaped UFOs in flight over Virginia Beach, Virginia. These UFOs were being chased by four US military jet aircraft. This sighting was later found to be only one of many in a wave of UFO events in the area and throughout the nation that summer. Days after that initial sighting, another duo of local police officers witnessed the same type of UFOs. During this "UFO wave" hundreds of residents in Virginia Beach were simultaneously calling the police to report their sightings. All the while, mysterious Men-In-Black made their appearance. Fraudulently posing as Center for UFO Studies investigators, the MIB made it clear "someone" was keeping a very watchful eye on Virginia Beach. During his lecture, James B. will recount his UFO sighting and bring a riveting chapter in local UFO history to life.

World Scientists Consider UFO Scenarios:
What Can We Learn?

Susan was born in Washington, DC, yet grew up near Denver, Colorado. Since 1970 she is (again) living near the nation's capital, in Fairfax, Virginia. She is State Director for VA MUFON and is active with the Fund for UFO Research, Inc. (FUFOR). Susan's early years were spent in the Rockies gazing up at the star-filled sky and contemplating the Milky Way. As a child, she read such phenomena based books as Charles Fort's Book of the Damned and Mysterious Fires and Lights by Vincent Gaddis. In 1966, when Betty and Barney Hill's Interrupted Journey exploded onto the pages of LOOK Magazine, she was hooked on the UFO and abduction mysteries. Susan was greatly influenced by the writings of researchers Budd Hopkins and Dr. David Jacobs, both of whom became friends. Susan holds a BFA degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore and works in the publishing field. Susan hosted the 1999 MUFON Int'l Symposium just outside Washington, DC and has lectured widely. Her artwork appears in many books such as Ron Story's Extraterrestrial Encyclopedia and Richard Hall's The UFO Evidence-Part II. She has created many publication covers for FUFOR & the UFO Research Coalition.
