Mysteries of the Chihuahuan Desert and Border UFO Sightings

The United States and Mexico share a UFO/Paranormal Phenomena on both sides of the geo-political border. Both Leela and Ruben will share their research on some interesting ” hot spots” from this region.

 

LEELA HUTCHISON

Leela will speak about her scientific exploration experiences in the giant crystal caves located in Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico. The Naica mines are now shut down. Leela Hutchison is a Graduate Gemologist of the Gemological Institute of America, an explorer, teacher and now published author on crystals, gems and minerals. See her book, Journey Into the Giant Selenite Crystal Caves of Mexico, on Amazon.

Born in El Paso, Texas, Leela has always had a near obsession for hiking, crystal and rock hounding and mineral collecting in the deserts in the American southwest.

In 2001, Leela became the first American woman to enter the astonishing giant Selenite crystal caves. These giant crystals are located 1,000 feet down inside a working silver mine, near the village of Naica, Chihuahua in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico. These caves contain what are now known as the largest crystals on Earth ranging in size to approximately 40 feet, weighing as much as 60 tons, and estimated to be 1,000,000 (one million) years old. See Leela’s research at: www.TheCrystalGiants.com/

She specializes in educating listeners on the remarkable qualities of Selenite, considered by many to be one of the major
power generating crystal energies of the emerging new global consciousness. Visit her Gem and Crystal Website: LeelasGems.com

SEPTEMBER 3, 2016 ~ MIKE MACE
MIKE MACE presents: Skinwalker Ranch Revisited – The Latest Evidence of Extraordinary Activity
MichaelWMace_200px

Mike Mace

ABOUT MIKE

MIKE MACE received degrees in economics from UC Berkeley and UC San Diego. He currently teaches economics at a junior college in the Sacramento area. He has been a member of MUFON for 25+ years and a Field Investigator for most of those years. What got him interested in UFO’s?  It was seeing the cover of Whitley Streibers’ “Communion” in the bookstore in 1987.

ABOUT “SKINWALKER REVISITED”

After George Knapp’s 2005 book declared that activity had dramatically slowed down at Skinwalker Ranch, many people lost interest in the phenomena.  However, there are still a number of independent investigators pursuing the still-active phenomena occurring at Skinwalker.

Please join Mike as he reviews the whole Skinwalker Ranch phenomena including recent reports and his recent trip to the area. He will also discuss his hypothesis as to why there is still very tight security at the Ranch.
