First glance of the UFO Museum and Research Center for me in 2007

 

 

 

No, not fumigation but blessings by a shaman

 

 

 

Pygoya with UFO museum director, Julie Shuster.   She said construction of the future new UFO
museum and research center on Main Street between 7th and 8th Streets was still on schedule. They
hope to relocate in 3 years.  She thought the property that I am researching as home for "Roswell
Encounter Gallery" is in an excellent location relative to the new museum site.

Roswell Convention Center where the other half of the festival action - vendor booths and lectures - were held.
It is about 6 blocks between the UFO msueum and the Convention Center/Roswell art museum.  In the art 
museum's lecture hall UFO speakers were scheduled, including Don Burleson and his hypothesis of the
murder of Marilyn Monroe because she knew too much about UFOs from JFK.  I bought his signed book.
