    Bucks County Resident Explores The Strange in The Spectrum

    Here is a recent article I did for both Bucks Happening and Montco Happening


    Bucks County Resident Justin Bamforth Explores “The Highly Strange” in His New Book, The Spectrum

    By Michelle Reese

    Justin Bamforth’s book The Spectrum was released in August 2018.

    Do ghosts, aliens and psychic phenomena all share a common source? Bucks County resident and author Justin Bamforth explores this question in his recently published book The Spectrum: Glimpses of the Paranormal and Encounters with the Strange. Doppelgangers, Men in Black, UFOs, spirits … Justin covers these topics and more through exclusive interviews, case studies and key testimony.

    Unlike some books dealing with the paranormal, The Spectrum manages to engage readers’ curiosity without being TOO out there and hard to follow. It’s written with a conversational tone, so you feel as if you’re sitting with Justin himself. Yet, it has enough research behind it that you understand how Justin’s years of studying these topics have helped him develop this book – and how it has affected his life!

    With Halloween just around the corner, it seemed like an appropriate time to talk to Justin about the book and these spooky topics.

    The Effects of Living in a Haunted House

    When I first began the Normal Paranormal website several years ago, I put the call out to see if anyone wanted to contribute articles to it. The response was almost nonexistent. Yet, there was one person out there who had taken an interest.

    His name was “Lawrence Miller” and he had lived in a haunted house.

    Lawrence told me how it practically destroyed his life and left a negative impact on his family. Although tragic, his account was at the same time important, because it put in perspective the reality of this that ghost hunters often forget.

    The paranormal isn’t fun for everyone.

    Early Testimony is Key in Paranormal Reporting

    The ability of the human mind to recollect events can be a powerful tool. It is also an inevitably faulty tool. This is why it’s critical for the investigator of high strangeness to acquire and document eyewitness testimony early on. The witness (and even the investigator) can become easily influenced by internal and external forces that alter the initial observation over time.

    An example of this can be found in the varied descriptions of the infamous Mothman of Point Pleasant, WV from 1966-67.

    People still don’t know about AATIP

    Despite what most in the UFO field would like to believe, there is still a large group unfamiliar with AATIP—the U.S. government’s recently revealed UFO program. This was the main subject at this year’s 2018 MUFON International Symposium. For those of you who are part of that group, here is a link to catch you up to speed on the DoD’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program.

    And for those of you who ARE familiar, here’s a more recent article just for you. Yes you, my fellow UFO nut.

    Dave Schrader The New Late Night Host

    SUMMARY: Dave Schrader is the new host of Midnight in the Desert.

    Let’s be honest, paranormal programming isn’t nearly as enjoyable after Art Bell left the radio waves for good. A lot of people complain that Midnight in the Desert (MITD) is less than stellar, and even less than bearable to listen to, after his “successor” Heather Wade took over full-time hosting duties.

    With the sudden passing of Art and the recent departure of Wade, it seemed like the show was destined to fail once and for all.

    Until…

    George Clinton’s Alien Abduction

    As one can imagine, legendary funk artist George Clinton has probably had a number of episodes of “missing time.” Those familiar with his eclectic taste know that he’s no stranger to the drug lifestyle, which also surrounds his legacy.

    But there’s one experience George Clinton can’t seem to explain away as easily as that.

    Recently, on Sirius XM “’70s on 7” channel, Clinton opened up about the moment that both he and Bootsy Collins witnessed while en route to Canada. Take a listen…

    Is there more to Travis Walton’s abduction?

    The Travis Walton 1975 abduction case is one of the more remarkable cases in ufology for several reasons. (If you’re unfamiliar with the case, then start here.) But one of the reasons I’ve become fascinated with it is not for what we do know, but rather what we don’t know. At least not yet.

    Most of the attention in the case has remained focused on the single evening of November 5, 1975, when Walton first went missing. And most people assume that that is all there is to the story. That it was simply a one and done event, which involved one man at the wrong place at the wrong time, who suddenly disappeared after encountering a UFO. Walton reemerged several days later to relate his extraordinary encounters with alien beings and humanoids who he believes attempted to revive him aboard a vast UFO.

    But was it really the end (or the beginning) of his strange experiences?
