UFO and Bigfoot Hunters Gather in Massachusetts

The Greater New England UFO Conference took place last weekend in Massachusetts, and the Sentinel & Enterprise News ran a story covering the event this week.

It reads:

LEOMINSTER -- Aliens, Bigfoot, and the paranormal descended on City Hall over the weekend for the sixth year of the Greater New England UFO Conference.
'It's a place for us around here to gather instead of flying out to California,' said Tennie Komar of Shirley.
She was one of hundreds who attended the two-day conference that began Friday and featured a lineup of speakers who covered topics including the science of potentially life-sustaining planets, paranormal filmmaking, and cryptozoology.
Organizer Susan McNeill Spuhler said the conference attracts people from the region and sometimes as far out as Arizona and Canada. Over the years, the number of attendees has grown.
'It's a comfortable environment to talk about their experiences,' she said.
Spuhler, who grew up in Leominster, said the city is a good location to hold the conference because Leominster and New England are hotbeds for UFO and Bigfoot activity.
On Saturday, keynote speaker Marc D'Antonio, an astronomer and chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network, gave a talk about life on other planets.
'It's really a universe full of possibilities,' he said during his presentation.
Understanding how the earth developed and what characteristics make life possible on it can be helpful to determine if those conditions exist on other planets, D'Antonio said.
At the end of the talk, he unraveled a 117-foot-long toilet paper roll representing the earth's history and pointed out major events, including the formation of the continents, when dinosaurs walked the land, and the emergence of man.

Exciting!

This is perhaps a new low for something happening at a paranormal conference...

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
