For six days and nights last month, Larry Coudriet watched objects move through the sky above a ranch in the mountains outside of Tucson.
They didn't seem to be stars or airplanes, the Aleppo resident said — they seemed to be unidentified objects.
“We observed many things happening in the sky and on the ground,” Coudriet said, declining to go into much detail.
Coudriet, who holds a mechanical engineering degree from Carnegie Mellon University, will talk about the experiences he said he encountered during a June 26 discussion in Sewickley Public Library.
It isn't the first time Coudriet, 68, has offered presentations in the library, but it is his first time to talk about extraterrestrials, librarian Lynne Schneider said. In the past, he has led the American Association of Individual Investors workshops in the library.
Coudriet will review “Hidden Truth, Forbidden Knowledge” by Steven Greer and “A.D. After Disclosure: The People's Guide to Life After Contact” by Richard M. Dolan and Bryce Zabel.
Coudriet said he hopes people with varied beliefs in extraterrestrials join his discussion.
“For some people, this talk can be very difficult,” he said. “It could be difficult emotionally and I understand all of that.
“I ask people to come with an open mind.”
Though, Coudriet said he thinks most people who show will have some kind of belief in extraterrestrials. “A lot of people who know of this will be there — people who are unsure and want to hear the evidence,” Coudriet said.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
