Going to the Source of the Strangeness

Recently, I did an interview for the API Case Files Podcast with its host, Marsha Barnhart. In the interview, we talk about my research into the Men in Black and other areas of high strangeness, which I chronicle in my book “The Spectrum.”

Click here for the full podcast interview.

Marsha was someone I initially contacted about a 2008-09 case that she investigated for the Aerial Phenomena Investigations (API) team. Even though it’s a multifaceted case, it’s probably best known for containing surveillance footage of two purported Men in Black (MIB) entering a hotel lobby in search of the manager at the heart of the case.

The clip showing these MIB caught on camera went viral soon after both Coast to Coast AM and BuzzFeed picked up on API’s case report.

A Mini UFO Flap in New Jersey?

Happy 2019 para-pals! The past year has certainly been an interesting one in the world of the strange. One thing in particular that kept me engaged were all the UFO reports I began to receive from New Jersey in 2018.

…including one bizarre Men in Black encounter two weeks after my lecture on, well, that very same subject

At one point, I began to think there was a sort of “mini UFO flap” going on in the area, especially in South Jersey. Sure, it wasn’t nearly as impressive as the 2008 Bucks County, Pennsylvania UFO flap that occurred nearby ten years prior, but there were still an interesting number of cases, which Patch reported on recently.

Fifty-one to be exact. (Hold the Area 51 jokes please.)

MIB Caught On Video Surveillance

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to listen to my interview on the Midnight in the Desert radio broadcast.

Here is a link to the video (along with original audio testimony) regarding the Men in Black caught on surveillance cameras back in 2009 that I referenced on the show…

Kudos to Marsha Barnhart from API for supplying me with key information to set the record straight on this incredible encounter. She was a great resource in helping me uncover additional info regarding this case.

But the case is not just a simple MIB one. It is truly a strange event that has many different components to it. Continue reading MIB Caught On Video Surveillance

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.

Hot on the Trail of the Men in Black

“Hot on the Trail of the Men in Black & Other Non-Human Entities” is the name of an upcoming lecture I’m presenting next month. In it, I’ll be revealing some of my findings while working on my new book “The Spectrum: Glimpses of the Paranormal and Encounters with the Strange.”
