Scottsdale, Arizona – Tuesday, December 13, 2022/ There’s a new venue that just debuted at the Arizona Boardwalk, “The UFO Experience: The Truth is Out There.” The museum is family-friendly with an immersive and interactive multi-room exhibit that focuses on the phenomenon historically and a peak inside how it has impacted pop-culture.
The UFO Experience replaces “The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!” after its closing back in September of this year.
Rebecca and I found that the museum was fun, entertaining, educational, and yes, it was immersive, it also has a “Walk on the Moon,” bouncy house for the kids. “And Rebecca was informed that the bouncy house was for the kids…”
The self guided tour from the start was full of interactive displays, including a headphone station where you can listen to actual 911 calls from citizens and radio conversations between pilots and air traffic control regarding UFO sightings.
The exhibit covers the UFO topic from Ancient aliens, to modern sightings, abductions and has a historical timeline of the topic of aliens in cinema. There’s also a ton of UFO history in the gallery items and a few familiar aliens you’ll encounter during the tour.
The UFO Experience is for the believer, interested but not yet committed, and the skeptic alike. They give you a score sheet and tokens before entering to gauge if the exhibit had change your opinions either way, which you’ll express by the end of the tour.
The museum is the eighth attraction at the boardwalk joining Odysea Aquarium, Land of the Dinosaurs, and Butterfly Wonderland.
It’s hours of operations: 10am – 6pm everyday.
Located at Arizona Boardwalk

Smoke from Canada fires blankets U.S. East Coast: A reminder of climate change impact
Smoke from Canadian fires is causing heavy cover on the US East Coast, highlighting the effects of climate change. Stay indoors and wear masks when going outside.
New York – As wildfires continue to ravage parts of Canada, the United States East Coast has been hit with an eerie veil of smoke that has blanketed the region. According to a story from Reuters, smoke from the fires has traveled more than 1,000 miles south, leaving residents of cities such as New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. struggling to breathe.
The smoke has created an otherworldly atmosphere, with the sun appearing as a dim, red orb in the sky. People have been advised to stay indoors and to wear masks if they must go outside. The smoke has also caused disruptions to air travel, with flights being delayed or cancelled due to poor visibility.
The fires in Canada are a stark reminder of the devastating impact that climate change can have on our planet. As temperatures continue to rise, wildfires are becoming more frequent and more intense. This, in turn, has led to an increase in air pollution, which can have serious health consequences for humans and animals alike.
While the smoke from the Canada fires has dissipated over the East Coast, the long-term effects of climate change are still being felt around the world. It is up to all of us to take action to reduce our carbon footprint and to protect our planet for future generations. This can mean making small changes in our daily lives, such as using public transportation or eating a plant-based diet, or it can mean advocating for larger-scale policy changes at the local, national, and international levels.
In the end, we all have a responsibility to do our part to address the climate crisis and to ensure a sustainable future for ourselves and for the planet we call home.

The Spiritual Significance of the Strawberry Moon – June 2023
“Discover the spiritual and astrological significance of the Strawberry Moon, or the Full Moon in June 2023.”
The Strawberry Moon is a name given by Native American tribes to the full Moon in June, and it signifies the beginning of the strawberry harvesting season. It is also called the Rose Moon, Hot Moon, and Mead Moon in different cultures. The name Strawberry Moon is particularly fitting because the reddish-pink color of the Moon during this time of year can resemble the color of a ripe strawberry.
During this time of year, the Moon is at its closest approach to Earth, making it appear larger and brighter than usual. This makes it the perfect time for moon watching and photography. However, due to the brightness of the Moon, it can be challenging to observe other celestial objects such as stars and planets.
The Full Moon in June also has significant spiritual and astrological meanings. In astrology, the Full Moon represents a time of completion and manifestation, where intentions set during the New Moon are coming to fruition. It is a time to reflect on the progress made towards our goals and to celebrate our achievements.
Spiritually, the June Full Moon is a time of heightened intuition and emotional awareness. It is believed to be a time to release negative energy and emotions and to focus on gratitude and positivity. Many people use this time to perform rituals, such as meditating, lighting candles, and setting intentions.
The Full Moon in June, or the Strawberry Moon, is a special event that holds significance in various cultures and beliefs. It is a time to celebrate the bounty of the earth, reflect on our progress, and connect with our spirituality. Whether you choose to stargaze, take photographs, or perform rituals, this Full Moon is an excellent opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the night sky and connect with the universe.
