Second Saturdays – UFOs of Wisconsin
It has been noted, now that so many people have high-definition video cameras in their pockets at all times, that UFO evidence hasn’t really skyrocketed. One would imagine that the sightings that used to be so vividly described would now be accompanied by crisp, clean video evidence, but this hasn’t been the case. Some people feel that this dearth of proof is actually proof of the nonexistence of extraterrestrial visitors, at least in the classic flying-disc form.
Chad Lewis, a UFO researcher and author based in the Eau Claire, Wis., area, isn’t bothered. For him, it’s not that stories of aliens or sasquatches or weird hellmouths in country graveyards are to be disproven or proven — it’s about the stories themselves, and about what they tell us about the people who lived in a particular place and what their beliefs may have been at the time that any given supernatural event is purported to have occurred. Lewis isn’t looking for the truth in the way that Scully and Mulder did on “The X-Files.” He’s just interested in collecting the stories and telling them to others.
This presentation will include sightings and around Dundee, Wisconsin, our own local hotspot.
