COVINGTON, Kentucky – May 3, 2023 — For 54 years, MUFON has dedicated itself to understanding, tracking, reporting, and creating global awareness for UFOs. Now more commonly known as UAPs – there has been much controversy worldwide on precisely what these unidentified objects flying through the atmosphere and over restricted airspace are.  

MUFON is proud to give the public a chance to cut through the noise and learn from experts with over 50 years of experience whether these UAPs threaten the sovereignty of all nations. With a range of speakers from Harvard Professor Avi Loeb to a NASA program director, MUFON invites you to decide for yourself whether these visitors are friend or foe. 

Beginning on August 24th, attendees will have opportunities to learn how they can join MUFON’s ever growing community of likeminded enthusiasts, become UAP Field Investigators, and even visit the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force.  

The Symposium will also feature a special viewing of "one of the best UFO documentaries of all time, “Accidental Truth - UFO Revelations”. Directed and produced by MUFON's own Ron James, and narrated by “Stranger Things’” Matthew Modine, the movie has already won 9 film festival and competition awards. It was released worldwide on April 18th, 2023.  The showing at the MUFON Symposium will be a rare event with surprise guests in the works. 

This year's Keynote Speaker is investigator, author, and Director of the CanAm Missing Project - David Paulides.  

With 20 years of law enforcement history, David is an expert at solving the unsolvable and has authored the best-selling book series, Missing 411. David's hunt began when he received information from National Park Rangers that led to him researching missing people in parks and has since evolved into the formation of a research team that has reviewed over 5000 cases. These ground-breaking investigations led to the discovery of 59 geographical clusters of missing people in North America, the most prominent being Yosemite National Park. David has given countless interviews on his investigations and will shed a new perspective on MUFONs research.  

Master of Ceremonies for the weekend is investigator and award-winning Associate Producer of TRAVIS: The True Story of Travis Walton – Peter Robbins. 

Peter Robbins is one of America's most respected investigative writers specializing in UFOs. He is a regular guest on American and U.K. radio and podcasts and has appeared on numerous television shows and documentaries. He is a member of the French Académie d'Ufologie and received an invitation to give testimony at the Citizen's Hearings on Disclosure at the National Press Club in Washington.
