Roswell Fest 2016: The Odyssey Continues

Exhibit at UFO Museum in Roswell
The second day at the Roswell Festival was even more fun than the first.  We began our day at the planetarium, watching Fastwalkers.  The documentary talked about the thousands of sightings and abductions reported around the world.  Leading ufologists shared conspiracy theories and possible reasons for the aliens coming to earth.  The film was extremely interesting.  My husband and I then received passports, or booklets.  The point of the passport was to get visitors in the stores and hopefully spend money.  Well, their plan worked.  We spent plenty of dough on goofy souvenirs.  After receiving twenty stamps from the list of vendors, my husband and I each received a goody bag of prizes.  It was a very fun scavenger hunt that made us find all kinds of off-beat shops.

We proceeded to the UFO Museum where Stanton Friedman, one of the leading ufology experts in the movie we just saw, was seated with Kathy Marden.  I bought a signed book about an abduction from them.  Many other experts in ufology were seated around the museum with books to sell on the subject.  The museum was a collection of the events that took place before and after the famous Roswell crash along with several other things related to aliens and UFOs.  My favorite exhibit was a Mayan wooden hand-carved tomb covering called the Palenque Astronaut (400-500AD).  The artistry displayed a person sitting in some kind of machine.  Evidence of space travel?  Time travel?  Definitely weird!

After the museum, my husband and I went to a discussion panel of experts who talked about Roswell and aliens.  One of the experts was a former congressman and another man was running for senate in Utah.  Stanton Friedman was also on the panel.  After that, we took in another laser show at the planetarium that jammed out to Pink Floyd.  That was even more awesome than the Led Zeppelin one we saw the night before.  The evening was topped off with a night parade that lasted exactly twelve minutes.  It was really cheesy, but we loved it just the same.  The town certainly knows how to have fun!

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and hope to come again.  The people of Roswell were very friendly and organized.  This is a great place to have fun and learn about UFOs and aliens.
And by the way, my new book The Best Seller has a subplot about the spacecraft and aliens found at Roswell.

The Best Seller (Solstice Publishing, May 31st, 2016)
When Maya Smock writes her first novel, everything seems to go her way. Her book practically writes itself. She marries her gorgeous agent. Her name is on all of the best seller lists. Billionaire author Jay McCallister takes an interest in her meteoric rise to fame and invites her into his world of alien-believing celebrities. Her life changes forever when he tells her that they were both created inside of a laboratory. These authors are embedding an alien genetic code within the pages of their novels that originated from Nazi Germany because…
The time has come. They are here.
