Welcome to B.E.A.M.S.

Founded in 1991, our society consists of a
team of active reporters and field investigators who
factually gather, study and disseminate evidence relating to Earth Mysteries, (e.g. Ley Lines, Terrestrial Energies and Ancient Site Anomalies), Strange Aerial Happenings, (e.g. Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

About The British Earth & Aerial Mysteries Society - (Acronym B.E.A.M.S.)
Britain's Oldest, Totally Free, UFO/Paranormal Investigative/Reporting Center


Preamble/Telling it like it is: You know, it's partly true what they say - that many UFO and Psychic 'experts' are merely 'spivs'... spinning superstition and stories just in order to sell books, boost their egos and of course, their bank balances.

We could actually name a fair few money-grabbing charlatans on the 'circuit'; the two faced sort,
who are very bombastic and pro UFO/Paranormal matters when it suits them - in public and on TV, especially when they have a new book due for publication or a conference tour coming up; yet behind the scenes, while with friends and family, they drop their stage act and
go back to sitting on the fence about it all.

UFO Circus - The Grossest Show on Earth?

Although thankfully there are still some good people involved, UFOlogy is fast becoming a circus of jesters, salespeople, greed and corruption.

First on the 'Big Top' bill there are the slapstick performers; smarmy, heavily made-up, sweet talking, suit-wearing 'clowns', who tend to smile an awful lot, and flash their professionally bleached 'pearly whites' as they laugh all the way to the bank; those whose patter, writings, videos and other presentations should carry the disclaimer 'only to be taken seriously by the hard of thinking'.

Next in our metaphorical horror troupe come quite a few journalists and media commentators; contemptible slippery, slimy creatures some of which are actually trained and fed, (controlled/paid) by the British Government and Ministry of Defence.

Also in this phantasmagoria of gross lowlifes we find some exceptionally greedy YouTube hoaxers - those 'masters' of monetization, deception, photo and video manipulation.

Death by Drowning?

We reckon that such offenders need to be strapped in a ducking stool then plunged into the
nearest pond or river and held under for their 'sins'; many a true word said in jest eh?

The pursuit of wealth, fame and higher status is just not our thing; here at BEAMS we're not actors out to fool the public, like so many in the UFO field; nor are we out to get rich or be popular; we fully believe in what we're involved in, and do it all for the love of the subject; financing every BEAMS project from our own pockets.

Investigation, Dialogue, Assistance and effective Evidence Dissemination are really, all that we are concerned with.

BEAMS HQ: Our humble home in Farnborough, Hants, doubles as the BEAMS Headquarters, (a standard two-up two-down affair) and should you ever pop by, you will never find us putting on any airs and graces; we consider ourselves to be warm, open-minded, uncomplicated and approachable.

History: Apart from being an active Ufologist since the early 1980's, Kenneth John Parsons is also involved with Paranormal investigation and was once a colleague of Mr Maurice Grosse, a much respected ghost hunter and investigator, widely known for his involvement in the famous Enfield Poltergeist case.

Kenneth later decided to go public and share his wealth of knowledge with others; so, along with a good friend of his, veteran ufologist Emily Crewe, they established B.E.A.M.S. The British Earth and Aerial Mysteries Society. This started life as a voluntary studies and investigation group based in Kempston, Bedford, Bedfordshire, which dealt with UFOs, Earth Mysteries and the Paranormal...

Back then, Emily rightly believed BEAMS should gradually become a little less 'local', and that we
should attempt to share as much information as possible nationally; and what better way to
achieve this than the Internet? So, in 1991 BEAMS began expanding its operations using the World Wide Web.

A few years forward, and Kenneth was introduced to Hilary Porter, who had been a UFO/Alien experiencer since her early childhood - and she kindly offered to help run BEAMS; then, with Emily retiring in the year 2000 before moving to an assisted living facility in Cumbria, the task of running BEAMS was now left completely to Ken and Hilary.
 

Cyber Attacked: It is said that denial is the most predictable of all human responses; and a particularly malicious incident where our website was once hacked into and trashed, is perhaps a
prime example of the extraordinary lengths some people will go to in order to stop UFO evidence being published. A bit older, a bit wiser, and incredibly, we're still going! but rather than just being satisfied with things the way they were, we have made numerous improvements to BEAMS... including relocating our HQ to Farnborough, Hampshire and setting up a network of trusted assistants...
oh yes, and upgrading our computer security to the highest level of protection!

Currently Number 1 For British UFO Reporting on Google: As far as British UFO reporting and investigations go, BEAMS is currently situated top of the Google search rankings... a position we
have achieved through sheer persistence and dedication: Overall, our site is ranked the 672,568
most popular website in the world... which, out of over 1 billion websites isn't half bad for pages that aren't even mobile-friendly! (we would be forever grateful to anyone who could
help optimize our site, making it easier to read on mobile devices).

Britain's Most Comprehensive UFO and Paranormal Database: BEAMS now boasts a publicly accessible database of rare, (and often exclusive), UFO and Paranormal Reports, Images and Footage.

BEAMS Exposes UFO Hoaxers! Publicly exposing hoaxers/deceivers working within our subjects is something else that we take great pride in; already BEAMS has put three such individuals out of
action by naming and shaming them; here, we take the subjects of UFOs and the Paranormal seriously and have no room for time-wasters.

Free Alien Abduction Counseling Service: We even provide an excellent and discreet counseling service, free for anyone who has been affected by UFO or Paranormal encounters; this is run by
Hilary Porter - an 'experiencer' and abductee herself: Our doors are always open to those who
would like to share their knowledge with us, either in confidence, or for inclusion on our database, (with anonymity assured) if they so choose.

The Public Eye: Apart from being researchers and writers, we used to take on numerous public engagements such as speaking - having lectured at a selection of UFO conferences, as well as giving interviews on TV, Radio and appearing in Newspapers and Periodicals worldwide. However, these
days we no longer make TV appearances and only rarely give interviews to reporters; why so? because we are finding ever-increasingly, that society is becoming dumbed-down; many people aren't really interested in learning the truth about UFOs, Alien Encounters and the Paranormal anymore; instead they simply want cheap, easy entertainment.

How often do we see Abductees and UFO experiencers on TV, being put on public display and tried by chat show jury; all in order to give the baying crowd something to laugh at, mock and ridicule.

Until it Happens to Them: For sure, now it has become very fashionable for armchair critics to loudly deride anything which they do not understand, (or are afraid of) that is... until it happens to them!

Then, they're like 'oh, I used to be skeptical about the UFO subject, but what I witnessed with my own eyes has left me shaken'- and now I am having difficulty sleeping' - or - 'I always scoffed at the
very mention of spirits and the afterlife, but something happened to me recently that weighs heavy on my mind.'
: Here's a direct quote from another individual who underwent something of an attitude conversion: Michael Shermer, founder of The Skeptics Society, and editor-in-chief of its magazine Skeptic, which is largely devoted to investigating pseudoscientific and supernatural claims "I just witnessed an event so mysterious that it shook my skepticism."

When we hear of people suddenly 'waking up' like this we tend to think... what on earth took you so long? Nevertheless, we always fully understand and sympathize how such direct exposure to the unknown can quickly restructure anyone's belief system; as they say... Seeing is Believing!

Which is why, although we continue to give our time and expertise, listening to and
assisting others who have had similar amazing, (but sometimes traumatic) UFO and
Alien encounters as ourselves
, we tend to shy away from publicity, only giving houseroom to the internet; meaning that now, we can devote even more time to vital UFO/Paranormal research, investigation and reportage.

Skywatchers And Witnesses: To all UFO skywatchers/field investigators in the UK, (both those already accomplished, and anyone wishing to take this up as an interest) you are hereby invited to
join BEAMS.

Our network of sky watchers are tasked for the visual detection, tracking and reporting of UFOs
over Great Britain: Whether fully seasoned or just starting out, (and happy to learn the ropes as you go along), becoming a part of our team is easy; all you need is to be aged 20 or over, have a basic knowledge of the UFO subject, access to the Internet, somewhere to conduct a spot of skywatching, (such as a vantage point at one of your windows), a decent camera, a pair of
binoculars.

Most essential in all of this though is an open mind, plus lots of enthusiasm, patience and staying power... as remember, you should be prepared to be in this for the long haul.

And Finally: Please remember that BEAMS isn't only about UFO/'Alien' Phenomena, Earth Mysteries and Conspiracy (Facts), we are extremely interested in anything Paranormal as well; so, if you have any genuine photos or footage, (Handycam, DSLR, Smartphone, Trail Cam, CCTV etc) taken in the UK, with anything inexplicable on, then why not send it in to our team for analysis? first though, be sure to fill in a report form - and then upload your visual material to us using our Dropbox account - (even very large files are accepted), and if we like what we see - we may very well publish!

If you think that you fit the bill and would like to assist BEAMS in any way, then we would love to hear from you. Email beamsinvestigations@sky.com
