UFOs in Connecticut and U.S. will be topic of talk in Farmington

The Connecticut Chapter of the Mutual UFO Network, or MUFON, will sponsor a symposium and video presentation on the Travis Walton Abduction at 11 a.m. June 1 the Farmington Barney Library on Route 10, organizers said in a statement.

The Barney Library is on Route 10 across from Miss Porter’s Preparatory School, the statement said.
Coffee and light refreshments will be served. Admission is free.

By way of explanation, the statement said: “In 1975, Travis Walton was working as a logger in Arizona, when he was abducted in the presence of 5 co-workers by a UFO. He was returned 5 days later, dazed and disheveled. The incident created a media firestorm in Arizona and subsequently led to the Paramount movie adaptation ‘Fire in the Sky.’”

Further, the statement said, “MUFON is the largest scientific organization investigating the UFO phenomena. It sponsors 1,000 highly trained field investigators throughout America who investigate the 900+ sightings reported monthly in the United States.”

“The symposium will summarize UFO activity in Connecticut and in the U.S. generally. The video presentation will include extensive remarks by Travis Walton, clips from TV news shows and clips from the Fire in the Sky movie. Materials and information will be made available to anyone interested in joining MUFON or simply learning more about the UFO phenomena.”
