Following recent headline news of unidentified flying objects shot down by fighter jets in February, UFO mania is gaining steam. The US government's silence on the matter is only fueling the curiosity of conspiracy theorists and enthusiasts. And now, humans and space-age friends are descending upon a massive convention in Pasadena, California, for AlienCon.
According to planners, the convention is dedicated to "seeking the truth about extraterrestrials' existence and solving mysteries of the universe" at its March 4-5 live event at the Pasadena Convention Center. With a bevy of out-of-this-world speakers and guests, including Ancient Astronaut Theorist Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, the expert lineup includes former Defense Intelligence Officer and Director, UAP Task Force Jay Stratton, investigative journalist George Knapp, and author of international bestseller Chariots of the Gods Erich von Däniken.
