Contrary to the debunkers of UFO and supernatural research, the majority of UFO "pundits" don't make much -- if any -- money. Often, when invited to speak at UFO conventions, they have to pay their own way. UFO authors and researchers have to pay for their own transportation, hotel, etc. They might get a stipend or some sma

That Orb, after all these years, the memory still with me. Obsessed some could say but isn't it understandable that one would -- should -- remain at least interested in such an event? If not immensely intrigued?Short of hypnosis, I've tried various ways to get at what happened. Meditations, dream work, sy
A few years ago, during the New Year holiday, reports of dead birds from different areas filled the Fortean news. Here's another dead birds from the sky story from Idaho, closer to Valentine's Day than the New Year: Dozens

Readers of my blogs know I have an active dream life. I've had dreams involving Mothman, Sasquatch, ghosts, aliens, UFOs . . .Sometimes these dreams are on the profound si
This is one of those odd moments that happen frequently in UFO Land. Also, a bit alarming, because it suggests a mind slip on my part due to health, or old age, having nothing to do with UFOs or anomalous episodes in life. Given the context of my UFO life however, I'm not too worried about that possibility.Liste
Responding to my post the other day here at the Orb about orange orb synchronicity, my friend Jamie (who is a fantastic glass artist) commented:
After I posted here at the Orb about my eagle synchronicity this morning, saw this link on my Facebook page about eagle hatchings.
This morning, dozing in bed not ready to get up yet, allowing my mind to just wander and half-dream, the image of a bald eagle popped into my head. My mind was full of thoughts about the bald eagle, it's symbolism, it's juxtapositions (fanatical nationalism vs. gentle patriotism), it's power in cultures the world over, etc.
Night before last, I had a dream about orange orbs:I receive an odd piece of mail. A poorly put together pamphlet about a UFO researcher -- one I'd never heard of -- from back east. He invited me to speak at a UFO conference he was heading up. The photo of this researcher that was included
Yesterday morning I had a little odd moment of "What was that thing anyway?"For some reason, the night before, and all the morning as I was getting ready for work, I was thinking about the strange brilliant white spheres I saw over the playground at the school where I worked. I am now at a different school, but it's j
That's what I like: your straight forward UFO/paranormal stuff on good old Coast to Coast. Tonight: Strange Pings & ET Crash Retrievals . Guest Linda Moulton Howe. Also, "multi-sensory clairvoyant" Janie Boisclair who talks with ETs and spirits from t
Jimmy Church is the host tonight on C2C. One of the topics promised to be discussed: orange orbs.Upcoming Show Summaries & Highlights | Coast to Coast AM
A strange coincidence last night. I woke up suddenly, from a deep sleep. What woke me was Jim's voice. He said something very loud, very clear (though I couldn't make out what the words were.) It was as if he was talking to someone -- it sounded like he was right outside the bedroom door. But he was fast asleep in bed right
After all this time, no answers. Theories, and usually those are presented as "THE" theory. A one time, one size fits all offering. Naturally, those theories don't work. So we're back to it.But the classics still hold. Keel, Vallee, among them and many more. While I still think that some UFOs are literal
Reading Colin Wilson's Alien Dawn, which I'm greatly enjoying. Excellent; it's been added to my list of books every saucer head should read.Wilson had no trust or much respect for Carl Sagan, and in context of UFOs, this is understandable. Wilson refers to Sagan as an "…ambitious career scientist.." &nb
In today's mail: Alien Dawn, Colin Wilson's book on "the contact experience." Can't wait to read this book. Of course, as usual, my stack of books is high. Right now I'm reading Peter Levenda's Sinister Forces, still making notes in Mike Clelland's The Messengers, and making my way through the stack I h
On Coast to Coast Shows tonight, we have Seth Shostak from SETI, discussing, among other things, ". . . the search for ET signals."Space exploration in general is highly interesting of course, regardless of any ET presence. But wh
A report of a triangle UFO with orange lights that cloaked itself in Eugene, Oregon. I don't recognize the street from the photos shown with the article. After the UFO disappeared, two helicopters hung around for awhile. Just when I was thinking there isn't much going on around here.
New item on the Skinwalker Ranch in Utah. I've been fascinated by this story ever since the book came out. Was fortune enough to see George Knapp give a presentation on his experiences at the ranch at the McMinnville UFO conference a few years ago.Among the many, many weird things -- highly weird things -- conce
Clowns seem to have a category all their own in the Fortean World of High Strangeness. The latest: clowns freaking people out in Greenville. Understandably, the authorities are not amused. And as much as I detest clowns, and understand the communities' ire, since when is it against the law to dress like a clown?
I recently vendored at the Eugene, Oregon Pagan Pride Day. A first for this city. Hopefully it will be an annual event. This was the first time I've read tarot cards in that setting. Amazing experience! I met many interesting individuals, and had some profound experiences during readings. (Energy light balls, for exam
Well darlings, readers of the Orb here know full well how I feel about "skeptics." So it is not surprising that I am astonished at the choice for tonight's Coast to Coast guest: Michael Shermer. Yes, that's right, Shermer. On Coast to Coast. Get this:(italics mine):
