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).

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; later still, with Emily retiring in the year 2000 before moving to an assisted living facility in Cumbria, the task of running BEAMS was left fully 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!

Google Stats: As far as British UFO reporting and investigations go, our website is currently ranked 99,615 in the UK; which, out of over 1 billion websites globally isn't half bad for pages that aren't yet mobile-friendly! beamsinvestigations.org seems to get a high number of visitors; on average, this site is searched 165000 times per month!

Exposing 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, BEAMS used to take on numerous public engagements, having lectured at quite a few venues including UFO conferences; but sadly, we are no longer part of the speaker 'circuit' after having become disillusioned with that side of UFOlogy; and unless things change for the better, we won't be making any more TV appearances or giving interviews to reporters either; why so? because to us, it is patently clear that society is fast becoming dumbed-down; so many researchers are now simply out for all they can get, and reporters are usually immature idiots, hell-bent on printing pure sensationalism; and as for studio audiences... don't even get us started; so few are really interested in learning the truth about UFOs, Alien Encounters and the Paranormal anymore; instead, half of them are looking for cheap thrills entertainment while others are out to heckle, sneer and mock.

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!

We hear this kind of thing quite often... 'I used to be very skeptical about the UFO subject, but what I witnessed with my own eyes has left me shaken and I don't know who I can tell about this... so I came to you.' - or - 'I never used to be a believer in E.T.'s and all that jazz until I saw a UFO for myself just recently'. - or - 'I always used to mock others who claimed to have had out of body experiences, but recently, I've been getting distinct flashbacks of me floating and travelling through the wall of my bedroom at night.' - or - 'I always scoffed at the very mention of spirits and the afterlife, but something very weird happened to me that has caused me to completely change my mind.'

Here is 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 house room 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
