MYSTERY WIRE — First-time visitors to a UFO conference usually have no idea what to expect. Will it be weird?
The Laughlin UFO Mega Con is one of the world’s largest. It’s an annual event in Laughlin, a town of about 7,700 located 95 miles south of Las Vegas along the Colorado River.
The 2020 event ran from Feb. 15-22, and included writers, investigators and vendors interested in wide-ranging mysteries, including UFOs of course, but also suppressed technology, archaeological discoveries and more.
It’s that range that often surprises people. A woman attending her first Mega Con said she wasn’t expecting the variety she found. “I was surprised to see the number of new people interested in all things UFO.” Vendors told her UFO interest is growing and has accelerated over the past few years. There’s a sense that it’s more accepted. She also said she wasn’t alone as a first-time attendee. “There were a lot of newbies,” she said.
And there was nothing weird about it, she said.
One speaker, writer and publisher Brad Olsen, recently took an arduous journey by sailboat to Antarctrica to check out reports of strange discoveries being made as the polar ice caps melt.
“These are subjects that we’re not being told about,” Olsen says.
So when I went down to Antarctica, it was specifically to try to find if there was veracity in some of these claims that there was a craft under the ice, that there were pyramids sticking through, that antediluvian civilizations, or giants, or megafauna being pulled out from under the ice.Brad Olsen
Another speaker at the event, a PhD engineer, looks at whether the US has developed antigravity technology, similar to what was seen in the famous “Tic Tac” UFO video.
