UFO conference set for Westmoreland County Community College

The cast of HN’s “Hangar 1: The UFO Files” — Ben Moss, Tony Angiola, Jeremy Ray and John Ventre — will attend the Westmoreland UFO conference.

The “X Files” assured us: “The truth is out there.”

As that applies to unidentified flying objects, the Mutual UFO Network will host its 11th annual Westmoreland UFO Conference on Oct. 20 at Westmoreland County Community College near Youngwood.

The conference will bring together professionals who scientifically investigate cases of UFO sightings, along with reports of unexplained creatures and unusual experiences and events, according to a release.

Scheduled for 9
8 p.m., the event will include an appearance by four cast members of “Hangar 1: The UFO Files,” a documentary series that airs on H2 and is based on reports of sightings from MUFON files.

Speakers, discussion panels and vendors also are planned. In addition to UFO investigations, topics will include spontaneous human combustion, time regression and the Bosnian pyramids.

The day will conclude with an Italian dinner buffet and question-and-answer session with the speakers.

Conference fee is $25; dinner is $24.

A portion of proceeds will go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
