News item published on: 2019-10-08 14:17:59

The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Library will host “Science: the Hidden Paranormal Tool” on Tuesday, October 29 at 4 p.m. in Gulf Coast Library room 204.

Members of Mississippi Gulf Coast Paranormal (MGCParanormal) will present information about the history of paranormal investigation and discuss investigative tools, then and now. They will also discuss the weather science of paranormal investigation such as how moon phase, humidity, and barometric pressure affect investigations. MGCParanormal believe they are the first team to discover and utilize new science in the field such as how space weather has an effect on paranormal activity and investigation.

Following the presentation, those in attendance will be able to participate in a hands-on ghost hunt on the Gulf Park Campus using some of MGCParanormal’s equipment.

MGCParanormal, formed in late 2014 with over three decades combined experience, has investigated all aspects of the paranormal. Their ghost hunting sites include Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, KY, McNutt House in Vicksburg, MS, Mary C. O’Keefe in Ocean Springs, MS, and Beauvior in Biloxi, MS, where they were the first paranormal team allowed. MGCParanormal also specializes in cryptozoology with multiple in-state and out-of-state bigfoot expeditions and dogmen siting reports, UFO’s, and urban legends such as the Pascagoula Tribe legend of the Singing River.

Science Café offers those with minimal background in science the opportunity to meet and discuss issues in a relaxed social setting and is a collaboration between The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast Libraries, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Harrison County Library System, Long Beach Public Library, and Hancock County Library System.

Science Café is free and open to the public. Follow Science Café on the Coast on Facebook for upcoming events and live-streaming by visiting
