– Live Space Music
– UFO Stories, Art and Videos
– Alien Autopsy
– Experimentations
– Power Point Presentations
– Alternative Theories
– Ancient Sculptures
– Tribute to Science Fiction Artwork
– Much More!

If you have a local UFO (or any unexplained phenomena) story to share, please send an email to theufosho at gmail dot com and we’ll print it in our UFO SHO ZINE. Thank you!


UFO SHO – Coming Soon


Don’t pass up an opportunity to participate, speculate and spectate. This is a unique event – worth keeping tabs on.

There is sure to be more to come in the lead up to the UFO SHO, but if you’re an artist there is no time to waste in getting your idea-generator going, scouring the alien catalog you’ve created and hidden in your garage, or polishing up that supernatural story you’ve been working on between late night visits to undisclosed places in the Mojave. 

Submit your sightings for this upcoming Antelope Valley Arts show to: 


Deadline: October 2014
