Since 1969, the government has claimed no interest in the subject and the press and media either ignore or ridicule mention of UFOs. Yet citizen scientists and nongovernmental organizations have continued to this day the research into this important subject. Cheryl is a native and resident of upstate New York who saw her first UFO at age 12. A military veteran, she’s a retired information security professional from the aerospace Industry. She’s been a speaker at the International UFO Congress and at the MUFON Symposium.

Agnostic gnostic, walking conundrum and metaphysical oxymoron (with emphasis — by his own admission — on the “moron” part ), the mysterious RPJ leaves a double life: By day he serves as Grand Master in the International Sacred Order of Lucha Libre. At night he pursues his life-long study of everything mysterious and/or “paranormal.” When he’s not exploring the web looking for his daily fix of Forteana, he can be found making artsy stuff, fooling around on social media, or offering his services as writer and news administrator at The Daily Grail.
