Well, Astronomer Professor Donald Kurtz will look at UFOs and Life in the Universe
at a public lecture to be held at the University of Central Lancashire on Wednesday 11
December at 7pm. Professor Kurtz is a member of the University's Centre for
Astrophysics and a popular speaker around the world on his subject. His colourful
talks are enthralling for the enthusiast and amateur alike and he delivers his lectures
with more than a smattering of humour.

have visited the Earth.

the universe.
Find out what really happened at Roswell. "
