Friday, November 13, 2015 - 7 p.m. ET - Peter Davenport goes orange - well, he'll discuss the orange orb phenomena and why he believes it has increased dramatically since 2013.  Peter will also describe his proposal for passive radar detection.  Listen in LIVE here.
Peter Davenport has been director of the National UFO Reporting Center since 1994.  Peter reports UFO sighting cases regularly on the Jeff Rense Radio Show and presents lectures on specific UFO cases, most notably the Phoenix Lights sighting. Peter has also served as the director of investigations for the Washington Chapter of the Mutual UFO Network.

He had an active interest in the UFO phenomenon from his early boyhood. He experienced his first UFO sighting over the St. Louis municipal airport in the summer of 1954, and he investigated his first UFO case during the summer of 1965 in Exeter, New Hampshire.

Peter has been witness to several anomalous events, possibly UFO related, including a dramatic sighting over Baja California in February 1990, and several nighttime sightings over Washington State during 1992.

Peter received his undergraduate education at Stanford University in California, where he earned bachelor’s degrees in both Russian and biology, as well as a translator’s certificate in Russian translation. His graduate education was completed at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he earned an M.S. degree in the genetics and biochemistry of fish from the College of Fisheries, as well as an M.B.A. degree in finance and international business from the Graduate School of Business.

Peter has worked as a college instructor, a commercial fisherman, a Russian translator in the Soviet Union, a fisheries observer aboard Soviet fishing vessels, a flight instructor, and a businessman. Peter  was the founding president of a Seattle-based biotechnology company, which currently employs over 300 scientists and technicians.
In 1986, Peter was a candidate for the Washington State legislature, and in 1992, he was a candidate for the U. S. House of Representatives.
