A UFO sketched by John Lennon will be among the out of this world exhibits at a UFO conference in Filey this weekend.
Organiser Russ Kellett will show off his prized sketch from the ex-Beatle, which depicts a flying saucer he watched hover above New York.
The valuable sketch – which is usually kept in a bank vault – will share the stage with what Filey’s leading alien hunter claims is “indisputable” evidence of extra terrestrials. “A lot of people are coming to see the footage, a lot of which has never been seen before,” said Mr Kellett.
That footage, he claims, includes shots of a flying saucer in Selby, an 18-minute clip of flying triangles coming out of Filey Bay, and balls of light hovering over the town.
“Really this is some of the best footage you will ever see,” he added.
This is the third time he’s held a UFO conference in the borough, dubbed Britain’s UFO capital due to the high numbers of ‘close encounters’.
But in an eerie twist, he has tried to screen some of the “explosive” footage at previous conferences – and something mysteriously went wrong with the equipment.
But he is hoping for third time lucky at Saturday’s free conference, which will also feature talks from top UFO experts and believers.
Usually these events would cost £25 per ticket but Russ is doing this out of his own pocket to try and keep people interested in little green men.
“After sex, the paranormal is the most searched for thing on the internet – it’s big business again,” he said.
I will show people why Filey is the UFO capital of BritainRuss Kellett
“But look at the X-Files coming back next year, people are fascinated and they know that these things are out there. We are bringing people to Filey over this and it should prove big business for the town.
“And when they come to Filey next week they will see why this area is the UFO capital.”
The conference takes place between 10am and 10.30pm on Saturday July 18 inside the Evron Centre.
Special guest UFO whistleblower Larry Warren will head up the line-up, which also features Phenomena editor Steve Mera, and experts Sue Farrar and Nigel Wright, who will talk about their experiences.
