AlienCon 2023 touches down in Pasadena

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — AlienCon makes its return March 4 to 5 at the Pasadena Convention Center.

Public interest in UFOs, also known as UAPs, or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena, has gained momentum in recent years, with the U.S. government receiving hundreds of reports in 2022.

While many UFO reports are explained as human-made objects, such as weather balloons or drones, many remain unexplained.

Nick Pope, retired UK Ministry of Defense UFO investigator, is one of this year’s AlienCon expert guest panelist. He says recent events have moved UFO interest from the fringe into the mainstream.
