MICHAEL LUCKMAN, LONGTIME UFO ADVOCATE IN NYC & "ALIEN ROCK' AUTHOR, DIES AT AGE 72
by Harold Egeln
Feb. 4, 2015, New York, N.Y. -- Michael Luckman, who combined the UFO topic with a flair of showmanship for 40 years to attract media and general public attention, died on January 30 of a stroke. He was 72.
Rocketing into international fame in 2005 with the publication of his "ALIEN ROCK - The Rock 'n' Roll UFO Connection" book [Simon & Schuster], Luckman staged several successful UFO conventions and events over the last 30 years in his hometown of New York City, organized out of his home office, bedazzled with UFO item displays and a large UFO topic library in Greenwich Village. It was only a few blocks from where Whitley Strieber once had his NYC apartment.
Recently he hosted his own radio show "Starship One Radio" (formerly "Doomsday Live Radio"), and he was the founder in the 1980's of the New York City Center for Extraterrestrial Research and in this century founder of The Cosmic Majority (www.cosmicmajority.org). During the Vietnam War, he was a publicist for the anti-Vietnam War peace movement.
It was in NYC, where he was born in Queens in April 1942 (he attended Adelphi University), that he first attracted national attention with his teaching the first college course in the United States on rock music in 1971 at the New School for Social Research in Greenwich Village. Shortly after he launched a pioneering TV talk show "Underground Tonight Show" on Manhattan cable television whose quirky format would later help inspire "Saturday Night Live."
Luckman's first venture into ufology was in 1975 with his alternative culture newspaper "The New York Daily Planet" with featured articles on UFOs and the paranormal, including articles by a then rising ufology journalist from Chile, Antonio Huneeus (once a neighbor of mine). Both of them and a retired Hungarian military colonel from Queens were among those involved around 1978 in holding meetings at the United Nations on UFOs, pushing for global disclosure. During the filming of the first "Superman" movie, he approached actors during a break on 42nd Street waving a copy of his newspaper "The New York Daily Planet" and that scene, in front of the old Daily News building serving as "The Daily Planet" in the hit movie, was included in the documentary about the movie, shown on the ABC-TV network in February 1982. This was Luckman's first flair for showmanship in public.
In the 1980's, Luckman began holding popular UFO conventions in NYC that gained media coverage. Among them was the "War of the World's 50th Anniversary UFO Convention" at the former Hollywood Club in Times Square marking the half-century since the famous Orson Wells radio broadcast of H.G. Wells "War on the Worlds" CBS Mercury Theater of the Air that sparked a nationwide panic.
Since that success, Luckman held UFO conventions in a city public school, at the famed Village Gate in Greenwich Village in 1993 (which S.P.A.C.E. participated in), at the Hudson Bar & Grill in Soho in September 1996 that rated a front page feature story in the "Home" section in The New York Times. The New York Post would occasionally publish items from Luckman in its Page Six gossip column, and he appeared on such TV shows as "A Current Affair," "Extra," "Geraldo" and "Hard Copy."
He organized UFO art shows, including one at the American Primitive Gallery in Soho in the late 1990's. At the largest UFO conference in NYC in the new 21st Century, Luckman organized an alien rock concert at a music club as part of the highly successful UFO "Culture of Contact" multimedia event in the city's East Village at a public school and cinema, and effort led by abductee, author, columnist, podcaster and filmmaker Jeremy Vaeni with artist Melissa Reid, UFO contact artist David Huggins, Bill Birnes of "UFO Magazine" and myself for S.P.A.C.E.
At the time of his passing, Luckman was planning a "Alien Woodstock" on or near Malibu Island in southern California to focus public attention on the many UFO sightings there, many of the craft emerging and submerging in waters around the island. He was also making progress on a follow-up to "Alien Rock" with a book on Michael Jackson and other celebrities who had UFO sightings and/or mentioned the UFO topic in their work or with the media.
Luckman was a supporter of S.P.A.C.E. from its start in March 1992 and as supporter of my experiences and work since October 1989, once mentioning, with my permission, my experiences at the former Wetlands Club in Tribeca during a UFO topic presentation in 1990. Luckman never mentioned having witnessed a UFO or any UFO contact himself.
"My friend Mike Luckman just passed away. He was a pioneer in the UFO movement," wrote psychic and singer Joan Carra on her Facebook page on February 4. "He gave me encouragement to perform poems and I am even mentioned in his book 'ALIEN ROCK.' He was always out there and promoted lots of talented far out people. Thank you Mike and I hope you explore the galaxies!"
[photo above is from a California newspaper in 2014 about Luckman's plan to stage an "Alien Woodstock" concert there. The photo shows Luckman holding a photo of the "Face on Mars," a typical focus of his press conferences.]
REY HERNANDEZ, a close encounter experiencer who is a co-director and co-founder of FREE, gave a highly informative presentation at the 2014 EXPERIENCERS SPEAK Conference, an annual event held this year in Portsmouth, Maine on September 6 and 7 by Starborn Support and Northeastern UFO Conferences . Below is a two-part video on his fascinating presentation, followed by a FREE intro by MARY RODWELL, a FREE co-founder and co-director.
UFO CONTACT EXPERIENCE RESEARCHER DOLORES CANNON DIES AT AGE 83
Dolores Cannon of Arkansas, whose first UFO close encounter topic was "KEEPERS OF THE GARDEN" *Ozark Mountain Publishers, 1993), passed away at age 83 on October 18, and was born in 1931. A few S.P.A.C.E. participants met her during a visit to NYC in 1993, and she was a friend of the late Dr. Jean Mundy, a NYC-based psychologist and hypnotherapist who helped many close encounter witnesses, including Harold Egeln from 1988 to 1992.
Cannon stumbled upon the UFO contact experience through her work as a past life regression hypnotist after a career as a journalist publishing her articles in newspapers and magazines. She authored more books through the last 20 years and appeared at many UFO conferences.
RAY FOWLER'S 'THE ANDREASSON AFFAIR' BOOK REPUBLISHED
UFO investigator RAYMOND FOWLER's classic 1979 breakthrough book "The Andreasson Affair - The Documented Investigation of a Woman's Abduction Aboard a UFO" (Prentice Hall, Inc.) was republished by New Page Books on October 20, in bookstores and online services, as "The Andreasson Affair - The True Story of a Close Encounter of the Fourth Kind." The documented account of BETTY ANDREASSON LUCA was followed by a series of books in the 1980's and 1990's about her extraordinary experiences with UFO occupants, with trips to their strange places, illustrated by her in drawings and paintings from images retrieved by hypnosis and consciously. DR. ALLEN J. HYNEK's original interduction is included.
There is a website for the book, which has an an updated foreword by Fowler, at www.andreassonaffair.com, with the homepage shown below followed by a painting by Betty Andreasson Luca, who is working on a book with her husband BOB LUCA on their further encounters and thoughts.
"This is wonderful news and will create new interest in a seminal and essential true story which provides awesome images, revelations and detailed accounts from the interior experience of Betty Andreasson Luca's CE-4's, resonating with both a new generation of experiencers and researchers, and remind us who followed Fowler's fascinating and eye-opening books as they appeared of the deep and complex mystery ofUFO occupant interaction with humans," said S.P.A.C.E. Founder HAROLD EGELN.
The book cover of the original "THE ANDREASSON AFFAIR" Prentice Hall 1979 hardcover book, purchased by Harold Egeln on March 26, 1979, and below from the book, Betty Andreasson's drawing of UFO occupants entering her closed kitchen door, moving in jerky movements and leaving a vaporous trail behind, she wrote.
'THE EXPERIENCE' WITH JEREMY VAENI JOINS 'DREAMLAND' ON WHITLEY STRIEBER'S 'UNKNOWN COUNTRY'
"Dreamland" online radio-internet program host WHITLEY STRIEBER welcomed a new half-hour weekly interview program to his UNKNOWN COUNTRY venue at the end of October -- "THE EXPERIENCE" hosted by JEREMY VAENI, an experiencer, researcher, author, movie-maker and talk podcaster who was lead producer and co-founder of the successful and news making UFO "CULTURE OF CONTACT" multimedia event in June 2007 in NYC and October 2008 in Jersey City and Hoboken, plus a special presentation in September 2007 of a book talk by Strieber in Greenwich Village, NYC.
"I've admired Jeremy's work for years," said Strieber in his Oct. 22 announcement. He is kind, open-minded and careful. He's a terrific podcaster and his interviews have that essential magic that is so rare: they tell a good story that is also accurate and informative. I'm happy to welcome him to this website."
Vaeni, a native Queens, NYC resident who has lived and worked in Hawaii for the last few years, arose to public attention over eight years ago with his first book "I Know Why The Aliens Don't Land" and his "No One Is Watching: An Alien Abductee's Story" movie, both recounting his own close encounters and experiences, and through his column in "UFO Magazine" and his paracast program and Paratopia online magazine. His next book was the thought-provoking "Urgency!" followed by his current fictional novel based in part on real events, "Into The End" which is "co-authored" with his teenage self, who wrote the original manuscript, and Vaeni himself now. [book review coming soon.]
"The show concentrates on the close encounter experience, the people who research it and the people who have it. I interview experiencers of all high strangeness phenomena," said Vaeni in Strieber's announcement. The program airs on weekly on Wednesdays. "Anything and everything is on the table. Let's explore it all: what it means to be an experiencer, what the experience may mean beneath its obvious surface."
The source may be a "singular intelligence," he mused, using tools to interact with humans, or be part of a wider universal ecology of life, mind and other factors we can only imagine. The approach is what S.P.A.C.E. has engaged in through its support groups and research programs, leaving it all open minded and open-ended, aware of a suggested "cosmic ecology" within which our reality and that of the mysterious sources who interface with us dwells.
His guest on Wed., Nov. 18 was KAREN CAVELLI, author of "LET THEM IN: 30 Years of Secret Experiences" published in March 2014 --- www.karencavelli.com.

DAYLIGHT UFO SIGHTING, BAY RIDGE, BROOKLYN, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2014 -- Report by Harold Egeln
By chance or by design, I had my first UFO sighting of this year today, on my way home from breakfast out and errands, beginning at 12:52 p.m. on a bright blue sky, sunny day. I was walking west on 94th Street from Fourth to Third Avenue, and enjoying the beautiful blue sky above when I noticed a white disc shaped object moving slowly in the mid-western sky high over the Narrows and Staten Island in a southwesterly direction. My immediate thoughts were: balloon or aircraft, common sights here in NYC. But the entire "flying saucer" was white on the bottom and its sides, and did not necessarily seemed to be reflecting sunlight alone, with the northern edge not being in a shady coloration. It had no contrail nor did it sway as a balloon in a high wind. It did sway in a falling leaf kind of way as if it were being controlled, but was not descending or ascending either. It was not reflecting the sun but seemed to be generating its own white color, either its natural surface most likely or shining on its own without benefit of sunlight. Then an apartment building blocked further observation. I have sharp-eyed 20/15 vision and clearly saw the object's uniform disc shape with no markings or signs of deflation. The sighting, which lasted about three minutes, suggested a UFO, unless I am mistaken. My sketch enlarges the UFO disc about three times its size as I saw it. The shape is also like a sketch by "Bryant D." of the well publicized Arthur Kills, Staten Island mass UFO sighting of July 14, 2001. His sketch is in the article mentionedbelow.
STATEN ISLAND DAILY NEWSPAPER FEATURES WAGNER COLLEGE ASTRONOMER's ACTIVE UFO INTEREST
by Harold Egeln
Oct. 16, 2014 -- The "STATEN ISLAND ADVANCE" daily newspaper of Richmond County in NYC, we discovered today, had a feature article on September 1, 2014 about the Wagner College astronomer's interest and scientific support of UFO research. Under the headline above, in an article in the newspaper by Andrew Paul Mele, Wagner College Planetarium Director DENNIS ANDERSON, known here in NYC as involved with the late BUDD HOPKINS' INTRUDERS FOUNDATION, talks about his lifetime interest in UFOs since age 12 when he read "THE REPORT ON UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS" late 1950's book by CAPTAIN EDWARD RUPPELT, a former head of the U.S. Air Force's Project Blue Book. (see book cover photo below)
Anderson hosted a UFO conference at Wagner College over a dozen years ago that featured HOPKINS, the late DR. JOHN MACK and DAVID JACOBS. The college is on hill on eastern Staten Island overlooking the Narrows by the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, across from Bay Ridge. The disc-shaped UFO I witnessed on Oct. 12 was over the Narrows (resembling the shape of the 2001 Arthur Kills Lights), heading in the general direction of Wagner College. He is also a member of the Amateur Astronomers Association of Staten Island and the Center for UFO Studies. The article mentions the 2001 Arthur Kills UFO sightings over the western side of Staten Island by New Jersey. To read the entire article, click www.silive.com and enter search.
The above Wagner College events happened in 2001.

CALL IT "SPACEBOOK" AS S.P.A.C.E. ENTERS THE SOCIAL MEDIA ERA
Nov. 14, 2014 -- S.P.A.C.E. entered the social media era early this November, at the suggestion of a S.P.A.C.E. participant, on Facebook with a S.P.A.C.E. Community Facebook page, shown below, along with three Facebook Groups, shown in the photo album (enlarge to view): a S.P.A.C.E. Facebook Group and a S.P.A.C.E. UFO Contact Program Facebook Group, the groups being for invited members. Within a short time, we were able to connect with folks in the UFO community in this country and around the world, some who we know and have met, others who are familiar to almost all in Ufology, and some who are active but of whom we were unaware. This creates an interactive community for communication, sharing and learning from each other. This new opening for S.P.A.C.E. interaction allows people on Facebook to post comments on our S.P.A.C.E. UFO EXPLORER website here, on nearly every of its pages. But there will be no S.P.A.C.E. tweets or twitters.
