Former Nasa astronomer Marian Rudnyk at UPARS LA Jan 21st, 2020!

On January 1, 2017 former NASA astronomer Marian Rudnyk was eating at a McDonald's McDiner in Monrovia, California when he noticed four unknown craft descend out from the dark rain clouds. Racing outside he shot photos and a video - & changed his life forever. The footage was authenticated by US Air Force Space Command and a heavy military response ensued - and events continue to unfold to this day. This is that story & so much more...

Steve Murillo, Director of UPARS LA, to present NAVY UAP Encounters 2004, 2015

The USS Nimitz UFO incident was a radar-visual encounter of an unidentified flying object by US fighter pilots of the Nimitz Carrier Strike Group in 2004. The encounter also included an engagement with the UFO by CMDR David Fravor, commander of Strike Fighter Squadron 41, and his weapon systems officer. The primary encounter occurred on 14 November 2004, with purportedly related sightings occurring in the days before and after this encounter. A 2015 account of the incident on FighterSweep.com, interviews with one of the pilots, and subsequent news reports describe the sighting of an "unidentified flying object" by six Navy Super Hornet fighter jets. Thirteen years after the incident, in December 2017, infrared footage of the encounter was released to the public. According to The Washington Post, the video was released by former intelligence officer Luis Elizondo to shed light on a secretive Department of Defense operation to analyze reported UFO sightings, the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.

Noted Producer/Director Paul Davids comes to UPARS LA in November!

Having now reached his 70’s, noted producer / director Paul Davids states that his life experiences include a variety of mind-boggling incidents that defy scientific understanding. After graduating from Princeton University (with a degree in psychology) and completing a fellowship at the American Film Institute (AFI) Center for Advanced Film Studies, Paul became filmmaker of motion pictures that go to the heart of what those interested in UFO’s, alternative history and the “paranormal” are seeking. His 1987 daylight saucer sighting with his two children became a catalyst for him to become the co-writer and executive producer of Showtime’s “Roswell: The UFO Cover-up” (1994). He has also had experiences (including with physical evidence) that suggest afterlife or “spirit world” communication. His interests expanded over the years to include all types of “paranormal” phenomena: reincarnation, deep hypnosis, ghosts and spirits, shamanism, synchronicities, psychedelic experiences and even apparitions of the Virgin Mary, Jesus’ missing years and other Biblical mysteries.

Bigfoot Researcher Ron Morehead comes to UPARS LA

Best known for the Sierra Sounds, Ron Morehead is a researcher, author, and producer. He’s been known for decades for his world-wide research into the Bigfoot/Sasquatch phenomenon. The Sierra Sounds are the only Bigfoot recordings that have been scientifically studied, time-tested, and accredited as being genuine. Ron has documented his personal interactions with these giant beings and produced his story on CD and in his book, “Voices in the Wilderness.” Very few researchers of his caliber are brave enough to publicly consider the hundreds of reports that include that “spooky action at a distance,” (Einstein). In his new book, “The Quantum Bigfoot,” Ron goes above and beyond, combining decades of experience and tireless hours of research into the realm of quantum physics as it could pertain to Bigfoot/Sasquatch. Also, he thinks there could there be an alien component to this mystery?

Ancient Aliens Mike Bara at UPARS LA!

Mike Bara, space expert and author of Ancient Aliens on the Moon, takes a hard look at the Kennedy Assassination and the race to the Moon. Mike will examine never before revealed clues to the real reasons behind the Kennedy assassination, the true objectives of the Apollo program and the shadow government Hidden Agenda that led to Kennedy’s murder in Dallas. Relying on never before seen documents culled from the recently released Kennedy assassination documents, Bara will show the secret connections between Kennedy’s desire to reveal the presence of extraterrestrial entities to the world and key assassination figures like Lee Harvey Oswald, Lyndon Johnson, and highly placed figures inside NASA who had reasons to want Kennedy dead. Bara will dig deeply into Kennedy’s silent war with shadowy Deep State figures that were desperate to shut down his Disclosure agenda and keep the world from knowing the truth about the alien presence.

Ed Brown comes to UPARS LA!

Ed Brown is a veteran researcher in the Bigfoot genre. He was the co-founder of “The International Bigfoot Conference”, and the host of the popular show “Sit Down with Ed Brown” on the Bigtruth Channel on YouTube, as well as the show “Sasquatch Encounters” available on the same channel. Ed has traveled the country and researched in over a dozen states while visiting some of the best-known hot spots in the cryptid, paranormal, and UFO genres. He recently finished filming and directing a documentary, that is currently in post-production, at a property in Florida that has very similar activity as the famous Skinwalker Ranch. With a degree in Criminal Investigations, he knows and understands the smallest details in any encounter or experience can change the face of the entire genre. Ed prides himself on the fact that he is extremely open-minded and feels that having an open mind to other ideas and theories is the missing link to furthering the research and finding answers to some of the greatest mysteries. He is excited to go over some of the evidence he has collected with so many great researchers in different genres and show why keeping an open mind is so important!

Daniel P. Sheehan comes to UPARS LA!

Aliens at School

On September 1994, more than fifty students at Ariel Elementary School in Ruwa, Zimbabwe witnessed a UFO land next to their school. Two apparent extraterrestrials exited the craft and began to communicate with some of the students. This event electrified the UFO community and made international headlines. This may sound like a unique encounter, but it is not. The truth is, UFOs have been visiting our schools for more than fifty years.

Tales from a Navajo Ranger

The Navajo Reservation in Arizona had long had reports of all manner of strange goings-on beyond the scope of what ordinary law enforcement is trained to deal with, including ghosts, Bigfoot, UFOs and the shape-shifting creatures known as Skinwalkers. Rather than dismiss these cases, the Navajo Reservation assigned a special branch of their police department to look into them, consisting of a group of specially trained federal officers who also handle more mundane matters. Although paranormal reports account for less than 1% of cases, they are taken seriously and recognized as worthy of investigation. Jonathan Dover will join us in April to share the inner workings of the Navajo Rangers, along with some of his most intriguing cases. Dover is a retired 31-year law enforcement veteran who has worked with the Winslow Arizona Police Department, the Navajo Historic Preservation Department, the National Park Service and the Navajo Nation Rangers.

Geoengineering and the Space Fence Lock-down

Elana Freeland is a writer, speaker and teacher best known for her books Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth (2014) and Under An Ionized Sky: From Chemtrails to Space Fence Lockdown (2018). Elana has also written a 4-book fictional series called Sub Rosa America: A Deep State History about the hidden history of America since President Kennedy's assassination. Elana will be discussing her understanding of the Lockheed Martin-run Space Fence, which many see as simply a few devices tracking space debris and perhaps some radar projects. Her contention is that the Space Fence is actually far more significant, entailing control and surveillance reaching all the way into our nervous systems via a geoengineered delivery system and the now WiFi ionized atmosphere.

Paranormal Researchers Steve Mera from the UK and Barry Fitzgerald from Ireland

According to a number of recent surveys, a UFO is seen every 8 seconds around the world. Have you ever wondered how so many UFOs are getting here? Conventional scientific theories would have us believe that advanced civilisations may have the technology to travel the vast distances of space. What if that wasn’t the case? What if ‘they’ are travelling here using a unique form of physics. Jumping in and out of our reality and utilising earth’s very own electron diffused regions, or better known as ‘ portals’
