Swamp Gas Fever

Well, tomorrow I drive to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the notorious 1966 Dexter-Hillsdale "swamp gas" UFO case, that led to the disastrous Detroit press conference that Dr. J. Allen Hynek declared the low point in his career.

For all the info you need on the Swamp Gas Conference hosted by Michigan MUFON, go here.

Swamp gas... or marsh gas? You decide.
I've put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into my one hour and 15 minute presentation (yet another reason I haven't been able to blog much lately), and I think it'll be pretty boffo, if I do say so myself. The other speakers, I am happy to say, look like they'll be fun to drink with at the hotel bar afterwards, so all in all I think it will be a fun weekend!

The event even got a write-up in the Detroit Free Press the other day. Not half bad.

I'm not sure what kind of media coverage to expect, but whatever we get I'll be sure to post it here!
