In order to spread knowledge about the phenomenon of aliens and UFO history, Stardust Conferences will be hosting its grand opening July 5-7 at Roswell Antique Mall, 208 N. Main St., complete with speakers and presentations.
After having her own UFO experiences, Paula Schurle from California decided to buy a place in Roswell to host UFO-related conferences.
“Before I began seeing them I really didn’t have an interest. … I really didn’t care,” Schurle admitted. “But now it’s really exciting to me.”
Her first sighting was May 20, 2008, a day she remembers without hesitation. But since then she has had multiple other sightings.
“I have a really strong laser light,” Schurle said. “And sometimes when I shine the laser, the UFO would fly close to me so I could see the shape.”
There will be three guest speakers helping Schurle kick off Stardust Conferences. U.S. Army UFO crash retrieval expert Clifford Stone will be present all three days from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. to discuss documents that have never been seen by the public.
Then on July 6 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., the director of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in New Mexico, Donald Burleson, will talk about a skull from 1930 that shows multiple physical abnormalities.
And from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. every day, a witness in the Travis Walton abduction case, Steve Pierce, will talk and show a tape where he was regressed, and he will show his movie “Abduction” from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Attendees can use the back entrance, and “the elevator will beam you up to the second floor,” Schurle said. Each presentation is $5.
“I want (people) to learn that the phenomenon is real,” Schurle said. “I want them to learn … aliens that are visiting are not here to harm us … I’ve had one experience after another. “They never do anything bad. Never. They’ve been here for years and years, and if they were out to hurt us I think we would have figured it out by now.”
