SUMMER FLYING-SAUCER CINEMA SERIES
Begins Memorial Weekend / Saturday Night May 29th
(“Rain Day” Sunday the 30th)
This month we are launching an all new series of events:
This month we are launching an all new series of events. This new monthly event will be a FREE showing of lesser known “Flying Saucer Films” with a focus on those that have important points to be made regarding the nature of paranormal, UFO and other anomalous phenomena, as well as society’s cultural reactions to UFO related phenomena.
UFO related phenomena and the Modern Wave of Flying Saucer sightings in the United States have had a lasting effect upon American Popular Culture. For that reason we feel it fitting to host this new event series at the South Austin Popular Culture Center (frmly the South Austin Museum of Popular Culture).

While on the Paranormal Response live TV show Tuesday, March 2nd, we got a call from a young lady in Stephenville who was reporting on her recent multi-witness UFO sightings as well as other recent area sightings at a football game. I think the caller can be heard in about the 3rd segment of this six part video.
Here are some links to coverage of the mini-flap:
I saw four orange lights forming the corners of an inverted trapezoid. The lights were of medium intensity, very similar to seeing an old streetlight in the distance. These lights did not seem connected, and as my eyes adjusted, I thought I saw stars between them, though I can’t be sure because of the lighting around me at ground level.
When I first noticed them, I knew immediately that these were the lights that had been seen before from this same location around Thanksgiving. My wife and son along with several others had noticed the lights in the same position (west) in the sky during an outdoor fellowship meal.
The lights did not change position or intensity. Since I registered them as streetlamp-like lights, my mind guessed an altitude of 500 – 1,000 feet. The interesting thing about my vantage point is that there is a very narrow distance between the top of the outbuilding’s roof and the steel-framed roof, limiting the combinations of altitudes and distances that these objects might have. If my altitude guess is correct, this would place the lights directly over the town of Dublin.
Sponsoring this meetup and venue is the local Austin Mufon chapter headed by Anomaly Archives board member Mike DeGroff.
The monthly Austin Mufon meeting is 1-4pm the first Saturday of most months.
As this is our first official “MeetUp” we’ll be answering questions about the organization, its mission, projects and goals, etc.
We may watch a video or two, talk about books we’re reading, and generally talking about a wide variety of anomalous subjects.
We’ll also be giving away a couple of books to some lucky attendees. Kind of like a door prize. Details at the meeting.
Also, after the meeting, if there’s enough interest, perhaps we can retire to some comfortable outdoor eatery for “conversations over saucers” with coffee, tea, beer, etc.
Finally, we’re pleased to announce that the Anomaly Archives will be hosting British Fortean Cryptozoologist Jonathan Downes the afternoon of Saturday, March 20th. Details to follow shortly.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you all at the Austin History Center this Saturday.
