Peter Davenport to Speak at the 2022 MUFON Symposium

Peter will be a featured speaker at this year’s MUFON International Symposium in Denver, where he will present some of the more dramatic and baffling cases he has received over the course of his 30 year career.  He will also cover the frequent reports of red, orange, and yellow “orbs,” or “fireballs,” the volume of which appears to have suddenly, and dramatically, increased in mid-2012, and which continue to the present time.    Any remaining time will be used for an update on the status of Peter’s proposal, first presented in 1995, to use reflected commercial FM radio and television signals for the direct, and real-time, detection and tracking of UFO’s in flight.
