Fairies, aliens, stone circles and conspiracy theories - they’re all the agenda at county’s ‘mysteries’ conference

The sun rises over Salisbury Plain as it's light illuminates the mist shrouding Stonehenge, Wiltshire, July 7 2015. Amateur photographer Robin Morrison made half a dozen visits to the ancient megalith, travelling over a hundred miles each time, to capture the precise lighting conditions he wanted. The normal weather patterns in the UK mean that a clear sky just a few minutes after sunrise is uncommon - a clear sky at sunrise combined with a misty morning is an extremely rare occurrence.

AUTHOR Neil McDonald has spent a lifetime trying to explain the unexplainable.

But one thing he is certain of is that a two-day conference in Preston will show there are plenty of other like-minded folk hooked on the mysteries of planet earth.

“It looks like being our best event yet,” said Neil from Ingol, who describes himself as “a seeker into mysteries.”

“It’s the eighth time we’ve done it here in Grimsargh Village Hall and each year it gets more and more popular.”

Fairies, aliens, stone circles and moon landing conspiracy theories will all be on the agenda at the Mysterious Earth Conference over the weekend of March 5/6.

Organiser Neil has booked eight “fantastic” speakers to cover a wide spectrum of curious happenings.

“The core theme is earth mysteries in all forms,” said Neil who runs his own company called Neil McDonald’s Megalithic Tours.

“The theme that runs through all this is that there are no answers to these mysteries. They just can’t be explained and we will never know, for instance, how or why people built things like Stonehenge.

“It’s the fascination of the unexplained.

“Each year this conference gets more and more popular. We’re hoping this time it will be the best yet.”

Amongst the speakers in March will be university lecturer and writer Linda Sever who will be talking about “other world beings” and discussing case studies of fairy and alien sightings.

And Marcus Allen, publisher of Nexus Magazine, will be giving a talk entitled “The Apollo Moon Landings - Fact or Fiction.”
