Erica Lukes’ passion for the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects dates back to her early childhood. After a series of personal UFO sightings in 2013, however, Erica felt compelled to find out what was taking place in her home state of Utah. She decided to take an active role in the UFO subject and, as a result, joined MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network.
Such are Erica’s skills in the field of Ufology, she quickly went from being a MUFON Field Investigator to the Utah State Director for MUFON. She soon took on the role of Associate Producer for the MUFON Communications Team. Erica is also a part of the MUFON Experiencer Research Team. Erica’s efforts led her to being officially recognized as “MUFON Volunteer of the Year,” in both 2014 and 2015. She now serves as the Communications Director for the International Association of UAP Researchers.
As her busy schedule increased, Erica chose to resign her post as MUFON State Director. Today, she is the head of UNEXPLANED UTAH , an organization which is focused upon scientifically researching UAP – otherwise known as Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. Erica works with other UFO-based organizations, too, and on a global level, no less. She is driven to not only broaden public awareness of UAP, but also to develop research protocols that can be utilized by other organizations and to streamline the research process. Erica strongly believes it is imperative that UFO organizations work together to share information.
Erica is the team-leader on a research program called “Project Orange.” This project is specifically dedicated to studying sightings and clusters of orange/red orbs (which are also known as fireballs). On this particular project, she works with several MUFON Field Investigators: Robert Spearing, Terry Ray and Geoff Cox. Their protocols and findings are now an integral part of MUFON Education, an accomplishment they are all extremely proud of.
Both Utah’s famous Skinwalker Ranch and its surrounding areas have held a strong, and lasting, interest for Erica. She has collected decades’ worth of case reports from this area, and particularly so with regards to mass sightings of UFOs, as well as mysterious mutilations of animals, and alien abductions.
Erica is an artist, as well as an accomplished, recognized, professional singer. She has been the lead-vocalist for many of Utah’s top bands. She also performed at the 2002 Winter Olympics. In addition, Erica has taken part in voice-over productions, and she has worked in the fields of radio and television, too. Erica’s innate ability to put others at ease, combined with a powerful stage presence, has helped her to positively influence those who come into contact with her, or those who tune into her regular broadcasts.
Erica has been a guest on numerous radio-based talk-shows, including The Richard Dolan Show; Ground Zero, with Clyde Lewis; Open Minds; Fringe Radio; The Martin Willis Show; Truth Theorem Radio; and the Paracast. Erica has also guest-hosted MUFON Radio. Erica’s speaking engagements include the 2016 Starworks Symposium. She will also be appearing on two major, new television series in the near future.
Media Appearances: Erica will be featured on two new television shows and was a guest on George Noory's "Beyond Belief".
She appeared in a new Canadian documetary and has appeared as a guest on The Richard Dolan Show, Ground Zero with Clyde Lewis, Open Minds, T3cerMillenio.TV, Fringe Radio, The Martin Willis Show, Truth Theorum Radio, The Paracast and a guest host for MUFON Radio.
THIS WEEK'S GUEST
December 16, 2016
Mr. Ridge is an experienced and respected researcher and investigator involved in serious study of the UFO phenomena officially since 1960. Starting out as head of the seven- man NICAP Subcommittee (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena) in Indiana in 1960 (which was one of the rapid response teams used by the University of Colorado UFO Project in 1968) , he became Indiana's MUFON State Director and FI for the Center for UFO Studies in 1989. Ridge has investigated hundreds of cases. His computer database lists over 4,000 entries for the region covering Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky & Tennessee. He operated and directed the MADAR Project (UFO detection) from 1970 to 1995. As head of The Indiana Group he also was in charge of Indiana's Rapid Deployment Team of over 30 FIs. In 1994 he wrote a book describing his efforts, "Regional Encounters: The FC Files".
Statement of Position on UFOs:
"There is no doubt that most UFOs are actually IFOs. For the subset of events that cannot be explained, there is a group of sightings that demonstrates solid objects under intelligent control. I am convinced that these objects are somebody else's craft. Although I cannot prove that the intelligence behind the phenomena is ET in nature, I consider the ETH to be the least unlikely. I also feel that there is a nuclear connection (or one that indicates a cause and effect relationship with serious world events that could lead to a nuclear threat) and that the evidence in the form of military sightings indicates an overt military-type operation in the first phase, followed by a covert abduction phase."
Always very interested in Astronomy, he began a serious study of the Moon and LTPs with The Lunascan Project (TLP) in September, 1995. The Lunascan Project is an EBTI (Earth-Based Telescopic Imaging) program using live and recorded CCD technology to document LTPs (Lunar Transient Phenomena).
