A detective turned UFO hunter is to host an international bill of extraterrestrial experts in Holmfirth.
Gary Heseltine, editor of UFO Truth Magazine, will be welcoming speakers from the USA, Australia, Denmark, Italy and the UK at Holmfirth Civic Hall, on August 16 and 17.
The line-up features Robert Salas, a retired US Air Force captain and 1960s UFO investigator.
Fellow American Peter Robbins will be discussing his specialist knowledge of the Rendlesham Forest incident where mysterious lights were seen in the Suffolk forest, in 1980.
Also on the bill is prominent Italian UFO researcher Roberto Pinotti, Danish researcher Pia Knudsen and Australian alien abduction expert Mary Rodwell.
British speakers include Mr Heseltine, original Rendlesham Forest incident whistleblower Larry Warren, Alan Foster, Steve Mera and Richard D Hall from Richplanet TV.
Mr Heseltine, from Holmfirth, said: “Since I retired from the police in March 2013 to launch the magazine I have been really busy with the magazine which has recently just celebrated its first year anniversary.
“As Holmfirth is now the place where I live I want to make the town my base for future events.”
While still a serving officer, he launched a national police database of UFO sightings and has hundreds of records of bizarre incidents, including some that were witnessed by dozens of different policemen and women at the same time.
In the last few months, Mr Heseltine has been lecturing in Melbourne and Sydney before filming four episodes of the Sky TV series Close Encounters, in Toronto.
