Speech Topic:  Saturday & Sunday - The Bob White Artifact the ROSETTA STONE
of UFO physical evidence.



Larry Cekander

Larry Cekander
has been involved with the paranormal research and physical trace UFO cases since 1996 when his friend Bob White, a former musician, actor and movie stuntmen related a story to him about a UFO encounter in 1985 in Colorado that he had.  He stated he recovered an artifact from that encounter and now that he has retired from the entertainment industry he wanted to try and find out what he had.  Cekander examined the metal tear drop shaped object and after seeing the object
knew it was from no normal foundry process he was familiar with.  This was the start of a 21 year journey of government lies, cover-up and deceit to rival any movie plot ever dreamed up in Hollywood.  Since that red-letter day in his life, he has followed the leads, done the tests at the best labs and universities in the country and have scientific data showing OFF EARTH origins of the object recovered by Mr. White. The object is extraterrestrial in origin and it is an alloy aluminum made by a planned process.  It matches no aluminum we make on our planet today or in 1985 when it was discovered.
