Â Â Â The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) Institute for Space Studies recently held its first official conference on the existence of UFOs and extraterrestrial intelligence, Prof. Lachezar Filipov told the Nova TV breakfast show.
âUntil now this topic was sort of banned among the scientists,â he said. âBut the growing public interest, not only in Bulgaria, but abroad, made BAS believe that we must respond to such phenomena.â
According to Filipov, the conference was prompted by the claims of âa serious manâ that he saw a âlarge saucer of platinum colour, with no windows, hovering over Sofia’s Kremikovtsi districtâ in mid-October. The witness told Filipov no one else around seemed to have noticed the flying object, or at least no one reacted.
âHe found me and told me the story, but wishes to remain anonymous, because he is a serious man with large business enterprises and is afraid the people will make fun of him,â Filpov said. âHe only told his wife and me.â . . .
