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 UFO's), and The Paranormal, (e.g. Spirit and Psychic Phenomena).

Preamble: It has often been said that UFO researchers are merely grown men without real jobs, spinning superstition and stories just in order to sell books, boost their egos and of course, their bank balances; certain people in this field whose creative writings, videos and other presentations, should carry the discalimer 'only to be taken seriously by the hard of thinking'.

Having seen and studied so many on the speaker 'circuit', we can confidently say this; if cabarete acts, double glazing-type salespeople, (flimflam men/women) theatrics/hysterics and creatively written books filled with fantasy/wishful thinking, are your cup of tea, then you will rarely find better entertainment than at UFO, Crop Circle and Paranormal conferences; there's usually at least one or two showmen/women on the bill.

Here at BEAMS, we're proud to boast that we don't indulge in the sort of aerie faerie, disingenuous  nonsense as outlined above: We're just honest and sincere researchers/reporters who have lived through many incidents of UFO's/Abduction/Alien Visitation, Spirit Phenomena, OBE's etc between us; and when it comes to identifying with the recollections, ideas and thoughts of fellow witnesses, that is when the insight gained from our maturity comes into its own.

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

Operations: Rather than wasting our precious time publishing magazines and writing books, we prefer to concentrate entirely on Investigation, Dialogue and effective Evidence Dissemination.

Our HQ: Is our humble home in Farnborough, Hants, which doubles as the BEAMS HQ, (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 open-minded, uncomplicated and approachable; what you see is what you get with BEAMS - and when people treat us with respect, we always reciprocate in kind.

Principal Active Investigators/Experiencers: Kenneth John Parsons and Hilary Porter.

Assistants/Experiencers: Julie Goring, James Rooney, David Woroniuk, Katherine Smith, Phil Galea, Jayne Cooney, Kirsty and Warren Barrell, Phillip C., Ben Miller, Nigel R, Tony Yates, Paul Welling, John Mooner, Investigator 'X', Gordon Dungavel  (d. 11 July 2016), Mandi Hayden, Jon Gillies.

Associates: Stephen Gamble, Ananda Sirisena, Peng Chou (MSc), Mike Freebury.

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!

Thinking Outside 'The Box': BEAMS constantly challenges public preconceptions about UFOs and The Paranormal; hunting by night and by day for the best evidence/proof.

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 826,797 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! (any volunteers that could help optimize our site, making it easier to read on mobile devices, would be most welcome.)

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 Counselling Service: We even provide an excellent and discreet counselling 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.

In The Public Eye: Apart from being researchers and writers, (which can be fairly solitary tasks at times), we are certainly no strangers to 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, we are beginning to scale back on that side of things now, as we would prefer to concentrate more on active field investigation.

Wanted Skywatchers and Witnesses

Welcome: 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
