2022 SCIENCE-BASED CONFERENCE ON ANOMALOUS AEROSPACE PHENOMENA TO INCLUDE FIRST PUBLIC SUMMARY OF INVESTIGATION OF UAP HOTSPOT OFF WEST COAST
Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies’ Annual Conference In Huntsville, Alabama To Feature UAPx Preliminary Findings
May 3 – The Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU), a fact-driven organization of scientists, academics, and research professionals dedicated to exploring anomalous phenomena known around the world as UAPs, congratulates the team behind the documentary, A Tear in the Sky, released today on multiple streaming platforms.
SCU now takes the opportunity to invite the public and the media to witness, for the first time, the preliminary results of the UAPx investigation introduced in the film at the 2022 SCU Anomalous Aerospace Phenomena Conference (AAPC). The conference, a three-day event exploring the intersection of where science and UAP meet, takes place June 3-5, 2022, at the Rocket City Tavern in Huntsville, AL. The scientific analysis conducted by UAPx will be presented by Dr. Matthew Szydagis (Albany SUNY) , Dr. Kevin Knuth (Albany SUNY), and Mr. Christopher Altman (physicist).
“Today’s premiere of A Tear in the Sky, featuring snippets of research provided by UAPx, is an important day in expanding the conversation of anomalous activities in the air and the water,” said Richard Hoffman SCU executive board member. “But the movie serves only as an appetizer, with the main course yet to come. Our upcoming conference in Huntsville will be the first opportunity to hear directly from UAPx and learn of the team’s preliminary results.”
"The UAPx Team is excited to present some of the preliminary results from our 5-day July 2021 Catalina Channel Mission. While it will be some time yet before we have conclusive results ready for publication in scientific journals, we hope to convey the fact that we were able to record a number of significantly anomalous events that we expect will be of interest to SCU as well as to the scientific community in general,” said Dr. Kevin Knuth. “Our hope is that these results will ignite further interest in UAP phenomena by demonstrating that it is possible to obtain hard sensor data on UAPs, which can be used to rule out simple prosaic explanations, and that we can learn from such data."
The AAPC also will highlight some of the finest minds in the study of the UAP phenomenon, including conference presenters Dr. Hayan Kayal (Julius-Maximilians-University Würzburg, Germany) and Dr. Alexander Wendt (Ohio State University) and esteemed panelists Dr. Garry Nolan (Stanford University) and Dr. John Alexander (U.S. Army, Ret.), among many others.
In-person registration will end when AAPC reaches capacity or one week before the conference, on May 27, 2022. Virtual attendee registrations will close on June 1, 2022.

Dr. Kevin Knuth, a former NASA research scientist, is the Vice President of UAPx, an Associate Professor of Physics at the University at Albany (New York), and serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Entropy (MDPI). He is the author of more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific publications on topics ranging from astrophysics to quantum mechanics and has given more than 90 presentations in 14 countries. His publications include one of the first peer-reviewed scientific papers on UAPs: “Estimating flight characteristics of anomalous unidentified aerial vehicles.” Dr. Knuth is also an active member of the Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU).
UAPx is a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying, classifying, understanding, and providing a public repository of knowledge on Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon.
The Scientific Coalition for UAP Studies (SCU) promotes and encourages the rigorous scientific examination of Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena (UAP), commonly known as Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs). SCU comprises scientists, former military, law enforcement officials, and other professionals, utilizing scientific principles, methodologies, and practices to advance the study of UAP observed and reported around the globe.
