About True Tales of a UFO Field Investigator

True Tales of a UFO Field Investigator

Presented by: Rob Johnson, Oregon Mutual UFO Network

Interested in becoming a UFO investigator?  Join us to hear details of one longtime Oregon Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) field investigator’s experience doing just that! Learn about the inspiration behind his interest in the UFOs, MUFON’s scientifically-driven investigative approach, and the multi-step process for certification of all MUFON volunteer investigators. The Field Investigator will also highlight some of his investigations into unique and mysterious unidentified aerial vehicles, and discuss commonly-misidentified objects in the sky.

Oregon MUFON is the local state chapter of Mutual UFO Network, Inc. MUFON seeks to investigate the UFO phenomenon in a scientific manner as funds and expertise allow. To this end, MUFON strives to establish a presence in every state of the United States and even in every country of the world since the UFO phenomenon knows no boundaries and is an "equal opportunity" phenomenon.

Investigating UFOs is fun and exciting. Well, no, not actually. It actually requires dedication, expertise, knowledge of the field, patience, money, time, a good head on your shoulders, persistence, sensitivity, diligence, and a few more things we're sure we've missed. And, yes, we did lie just now; it can be fun and exciting, too. But mostly, it's those other things

At Oregon MUFON, not just anyone can be a field investigator because you must take a test of 100 questions and get an 80% grade or better to be awarded a calling card by MUFON that says "Field Investigator" on it. MUFON wants you to be trained for the important task of dealing with people who have witnessed something they believe is strange enough to contact MUFON about.

If you think you are up to the task, we'd love to have you. Contact today!

About Paranormal Pub

Paranormal Pub

Join us once a month to hear from experts in unexplainable phenomena - think UFOs, extraterrestrials, Bigfoot, ESP, ghosts and beyond. Come have a beer and a burger handcrafted beverage, concessions, and/or a slice of pizza, settle in and learn something new from a curated line-up of scholars, experiencers and others.

According to Wikipedia: "Paranormal events are phenomena described in popular culture, folklore and other non-scientific bodies of knowledge, whose existence within these contexts is described to lie beyond normal experience or scientific explanation.

A paranormal phenomenon is different from hypothetical concepts such as dark matter and dark energy. Unlike paranormal phenomena, these hypothetical concepts are based on empirical observations and experimental data gained through the scientific method.

The most notable paranormal beliefs include those that pertain to ghosts, extraterrestrial life, unidentified flying objects, psychic abilities or extrasensory perception and cryptids."

We thank McMenamins History and UFO Festival for coordinating and hosting this programming at Kennedy School.
