Now, here's a good topic.

How prevalent is UFO culture in Las Vegas, NV.

Area 51...are there any other interesting things or subcultures related to UFOs in Southern Nevada?

I recall up in Portland Oregon, they have a UFO Museum...more of art kitcsh place, but kinda cool nontheless.

How about in South Nevada, and Las Vegas?

Well, Art Bell started at KDWN and then did his show for many years from his own station he started in Pahrump. He discussed and had quite a following pertaining to UFOs.

Gosh, I remember that!

Does anyone remember a few years ago, reports of UFO's over the mountains here in town?

I and a few friends actually SAW one of those lighted triangle thingies over the Spring Mountains back in 1997...and shortly after that I remember reading in the paper that several folks spotted these things in the sky here in town and in Phoenix....

Love the UFO and Area 51 stuff
