One way to earn the nickname UFO Jim is to investigate alien sightings for 45 years. Another is to take a birthday trip to Area 51 and be detained by ‘camouflage dudes.’
Yes, Jim Ledwith has seen a few things. And in his upcoming UFO Lecture Series, he’s telling all. As he has in previous appearances, including sold-out panels at the Sonoma International Film Festival, Ledwith welcomes doubters and devotees of all ages.
Tuesday, October 8: On The Road with UFOJim. Ledwith recounts tales from the field, including visiting crop circles in England and his visit to Area 51 — his favorite vacation. He’ll also discuss crop circles in Wiltshire, England, including when he requested, and received, a crop circle created to his specifications. Lecture includes a surprise guest who worked at Area 51!
In the second lecture, The Real Battle of Los Angeles 1942, on October 15, Ledwith explores the mysterious incident that resulted in over 1,400 anti-aircraft shells being fired over the city, and the indirect death of five civilians supposedly caused by a wayward weather balloon. The talk will conclude with an in-depth discussion of different UFO classification systems.
7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $10 per lecture, $9 for SCC members, $5 for age 18 and under. By phone at 707.938.4626 x1, at www.svbo.org or at the Center’s office located at 276 East Napa Street.
All proceeds from the UFO Lecture Series are generously donated to benefit the Sonoma Community Center’s arts and cultural education programs.
