Area 51 UFO ‘secrets’ to be revealed by Las Vegas Smithsonian Institute

Closeted UFO believers may have a reason to  come out this month, at least for one night.

Delving into the extra-terrestrial mysteries  of Area 51, a Smithsonian Institution affiliated museum in Las Vegas has  announced plans for a one-night event featuring speakers from both the U.S.  military and U.K.

The National Atomic Testing Museum announced  the event,  scheduled for September 22, to reveal the men’s personal stories that propelled  them to write books and lead their own investigations outside, as well as  inside, the military.

‘What you’re getting from this panel are  people who have worked with the military, all of whom certainly agree that UFOs  are real, and I think most of them would say it ought to be researched,’ Col.  John Alexander, one of the scheduled speakers told the Huffington  Post.

‘Here, you’re getting a small number [of  participants], but high credibility people,’ he said.

Joining Col Alexander in the planned  discussion is Col Bill Coleman of the U.S. Air Force who previously held a role  with Project Blue Book, the former-F.B.I. investigation of UFO reports between  1947 and 1969.

Col Alexander served as chief  spokesperson.

Also scheduled to join the discussion is Col  Robert Friend who served as director of Project Blue Book that all together  reported 701 unidentified sightings out of 12,618 throughout the years of  1947-1969, according to the now publically archived records.

Connecting the phenomenon internationally are  scheduled guest speakers Nick Pope, who served as a UFO investigator with the  U.K.’s Ministry of Defence, and Col.  Charles Halt who was Deputy Base Commander at Bentwaters, the U.K.’s former  Royal Air Force station.

Mr Pope is expected to share how both  governments of the U.S. and U.K. held similar study groups over sightings and  why both eventually closed their books on the issue.

In an email to the Huffington Post he  touched on both governments’ reasoning, briefly explaining that UFO  discussions were dropped to turn off the public’s prying eyes.

‘In both instances, the bottom line was that  we wanted Joe Sixpack off our  backs. Strip out all the mistaken sightings of  weather balloons and dump all the crazies, and we might just have something  worth looking at,’ he wrote.

According to U.S.’ Project Blue Book, the  project was terminated in December of 1969 after finding no valuable conclusion  from their work.

They cited zero threats to the U.S.’  security in connection to the reported UFOs as well as none of them  showing  technological developments beyond present day knowledge, and  none of them found  to be extra-terrestrial.

‘The  trick is to highlight all the crazy stuff in the media, so the subject becomes a  joke, pull the plug, then run the whole thing covertly,’ Mr Pope  wrote.

‘Now I’m not saying this is exactly what  happened, but if an Air Force pilot sees something unusual and it’s tracked on  military radar, does anyone seriously think we wouldn’t be  interested?’

The event is part of an on-going Area 51  lecture series held by the museum and will mutually feature what they’ve  identified as authentic alien artefacts taken from former UFO crash sites around  the world.
