UFO presentation set for Saturday at Ironton library

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about UFOs, Ironton native and Community Engagement Coordinator with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Chris Parsons will put on a presentation on the topic Saturday at the Briggs Lawrence County Library in Ironton.

“I’ll have a PowerPoint presentation and I’ll speak for about an hour on ‘Why UFOs Matter,” Parsons said. “I’ll take people through the concept, and talk about some occurrences throughout history where UFOs could have been a very good possibility.”

Parsons said that he got into the topic of UFOs because of the growing number of people who have looked at ancient civilizations and cultures throughout history, and seeing things that appear as if advanced civilizations are out there.

“People from all walks of life have seen something out of the ordinary in the sky,” Parsons said. “90 percent of those things can be explained, but there’s that other five percent that can’t, and I believe that UFOs make up at least some of those things.”

Following Parsons’ presentation, he will open it up for a Q and A session with the audience, something he said is his favorite part of presenting.

“My favorite part is getting to learn more about other people’s experiences, and just having a general conversation about it,” Parsons said. “If just one case turned out to really be UFOs, and if they were indeed real, it would change the world forever.”

The presentation will begin at 2 p.m., and the Briggs Lawrence County Library is located at 321 S. Fourth St. in Ironton.
