Gordon Lore and Erica Lukes will talk about Gordon’s fascinating life, including his work with the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) investigating UFO sightings, as well as his 50 years as a journalist covering stories from Nixon to the Apollo program and interviewing some of the most influential celebrities of our times.
They will also talk about their current project together, with the working title My Journey Through the World of UFOs, Ghosts and Psychic Phenomena: The Erica Lukes Story.
Gordon Lore is the author, co-author and editor of several UFO books and several thousand UFO and other articles on topics including spiritual phenomena, Eastern mysticism, nuclear energy, the Space Shuttle, public utilities, oystering on the Chesapeake Bay, and the early history of aviation. He was an uncredited scientific advisor to the late director Stanley Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey in 1967.
Erica Lukes is an artist and host of her radio show, UFO Classified, and has a passion for the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects and the paranormal that dates back to her early childhood. After a series of personal paranormal experiences and UFO sightings, Erica felt compelled to research what was taking place not only in her home state of Utah but all over the globe.
She was the team leader on a research program called “Project Orange.” This project was specifically dedicated to studying sightings and clusters of orange/red orbs, which are also known as fireballs. Erica served as an Associate Producer for the MUFON Communications Team and was also a part MUFON Experiencer Research Team. Erica was honored at the 2014 and 2015 MUFON Symposium for her extensive work with MUFON Headquarters.
