The case against UFOs has not been put to rest. Although UFO ´´officially´´ do not exist, reports of sightings continue to be made, and the Internet is filled with thousands of photos and videos of them. Although the scientific world has put UFOs out to pasture, the evidence used to dismiss them is extremely scanty and unscientific. Dr. Hynek, a scientist himself and the only government-paid ufologist in history, looks at the decisions made by officialdom in the early days of ufology, and how these have held us back - to the point that we are still naively talking about UFOs as we were talking about them in the 1950s. Has 70 years of research made no difference at all in our understanding? Dr. Hynek proves that there is a conspiracy afoot to hide the facts, and that there are many cases that still need to be explained by mainstream science - not dismissed with facile jokes and stupid logic. Citing specific cases, Hynek challenges those in the ivory tower by raising questions that have still not been answered, and refuting mainstream arguments that have yet to be proven. In The UFO Experience, a scientist of impeccable qualifications takes on his colleagues. This special edition also features an introduction by another impeccable scientist, Jacques Vallee. J. Allen Hynek served as official astronomical consultant to the US Air Force´s Project Blue Book. He was an astronomer and professor of Astronomy at Ohio State University, and later became chairman of the astronomy department at Northwestern University in Chicago. Hynek started The Center For UFO Studies (CUFOS) in 1973, and was largely responsible for the founding of MUFON (originally called the Midwest UFO Network). Jacque Vallee received his PhD in computer science in 1967, from Northwestern University, and is the real-life model for the French scientist played by Francois Truffaut in Steven Spielberg´s Close Encounters of the Third Kind 1.

UFOs: What on Earth - or off of it - is the truth behind the official coverup? Here, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the preeminent investigator of UFOs and the focus of the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, takes us closer to a true understanding of this confusing and controversial matter. In The Hynek UFO Report, Dr. Hynek presents his own expert, detailed analysis of the classified files of Project Blue Book - data that was only recently made public. He covers such vital aspects of the UFO experience as: Radar sightings - and how the authorities explain them away. Official debunking policies - the ways government officials try desperately to produce ´´natural´´ explanations for UFOs, even when such explanations are wildly unrealistic. The various kinds of close encounters, from strange lights at night to flying discs in broad daylight. The phenomenon itself - the subjective experience of the UFO percipient. These and many other features of the UFO scene are covered in one of the most important books ever written on the subject. The Hynek UFO Report shows us that although the truth is out there, officialdom is trying to hide it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gary Roelofs.

For centuries people have speculated about the wild things that might live deep within the woods. One popular theory is witches; people believe witches live in the forest and cast curses on those who enter. This may be rooted in the many fairy tales which depict the exact same thing. Some people also believe that wild creatures, such as the ones described in ancient folklore and mythology, hide within the trees, and seek to scare you. These creatures include everything from angels, to devils, to demons. Some people even believe woodland nymphs and goblins inhabit the forest. There is no way to determine what spirits are going to stick around and what spirits will move on. Some people who died a horrible, gruesome death are able to move on, but others who simply don´t know they died, or are in denial, will not move on. They will continue to walk among the living, sometimes trying to communicate, sometimes trying to torment.... Whatever the reason may be, these woods end up haunted by one or multiple ghosts, which makes for some pretty scary experiences for those who are still living. If you´re reading this, you´re probably one of the brave souls who aren´t scared of a little fright. But I warn you, these woods will give you more than just a little fright. Or, you may be one of the clever ones who know supernatural forces are nothing to be messed with, so you prefer to just hear about them instead.... Here is a preview of what´s inside: A haunted treasure hunt The devil´s tramping ground The devil of Pine Barrens Hoia Baciu - the forest of UFOs The headless ghost of Dow Hill Island of the dolls Much, much more! 1.
