UFO enthusiasts had an out of this world experience at the 18th annual conference for encounters of the third kind in Truro this weekend.
Around 70 people attended the Cornwall Unidentified Flying Objects Research Group (CUFORG) at Truro College on Saturday.
They were treated to talks from some of the county’s leading experts, including Robbie Graham, who focused on how Hollywood has shaped our expectations of potential alien life and visitations.
Speaker Lorraine Flaherty shared her expertise on energy fields and the conference's organiser Dave Gillham teamed up with David Lee to discuss a mass UFO sighting over Cornwall, witnessed by 40 people back in December 2000.
Mr Gillham said: “The conference went off very well, just over 70 people came along and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
“The speakers went down very well with the audience.”
The audience also had an opportunity to share their UFO sighting.
“There were some very interesting sightings over Newquay, another one in Devon and another one in Falmouth”, added Mr Gillham.
