Mike Bara to speak at Spruce Pine Alien Conference

Mike Bara is a New York Times Bestselling author, lecturer and TV personality whose books have sold over 70,000 copies worldwide.  He began his writing career after spending more than 25 years as an engineering designer/consultant for major aerospace companies, where he was a card-carrying member of the Military/Industrial complex. A self-described “Born Again conspiracy theorist,” Mike’s first book “Dark Mission-The Secret History of NASA” was a New York Times bestseller from Feral House in 2007. His 2nd book, “The Choice,” which concerns theories about Hyper-dimensional physics, planetary formation, conscious thought and how they relate to the Mayan Calendar, Hopi prophecies and the current era of dramatic change, was published in by New Page Books 2010.

In 2012, Mike published “Ancient Aliens on the Moon” from Adventures Unlimited Press, a new in-depth study of artificial structures on the Moon and the secrets it has held for millions of years. In 2013, Mike returned with” Ancient Aliens on Mars,” also from Adventures Unlimited Press, which examines the hidden history of Mars and the vast, ancient civilization which once flourished there.  In 2014, he published his 5th book, “Ancient Aliens on Mars II,” also for Adventures Unlimited Press. In 2015, he returned with “Ancient Aliens and Secret Societies,” which reveals the link between fraternal organizations like the Freemasons and the Ancient Alien presence on Earth.

In the Fall of 2016, Adventures Unlimited published Mike’s 7th book, “Hidden Agenda: NASA and the Secret Space Program,” which examines what real evidence exists for a privately funded space program operating behind the façade of the official public space program.

In 2017, Mike published his first novel, “Lightbringer,” an X-Files styled thriller about a NASA based secret societies’ attempt to create a world-wide catastrophic event in order to seize power.
In 2018, Mike will return to the world of non-fiction with “Ancient Aliens and JFK: The Race to the Moon and the Kennedy Assassination,” which will examine the new Kennedy documents and how they point to JFKs knowledge of the alien presence on Earth as the real reason behind the president’s murder.

Mike has made numerous public appearances lecturing on the subjects of space science, NASA, physics, UFOs and the link between science and spirit, and has been a featured guest on radio programs like Coast to Coast AM with George Noory. He is a regular contributor to the television programs Ancient Aliens (over 35 appearances), America’s Book of Secrets and Hangar-1.
Mike has recently starred in an alien investigation reality show for the Discovery networks called “Uncovering Aliens.” So far, Uncovering Aliens has been shown on the Science Channel, Animal Planet, American Heroes and Destination America networks, and is being show extensively in Europe and South America.

Most recently Mike appeared on NBC/Universal’s SyFy Network on the special Aliens on the Moon: The Truth Exposed, alongside NASA astronaut and American hero Buzz Aldrin. The show was based primarily on his 2012 book Ancient Aliens on the Moon.

In 2017, Mike appeared in 5 episodes of “UFOs: The Lost Evidence” on Destination America and other Discovery networks.
