The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Gulf Coast Library will host “Science:
the Hidden Paranormal Tool” on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 4 p.m. in the Gulf Coast Library,
room 204, on the Gulf Park Campus in Long Beach.
At this event, 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
believes it is 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.
Formed in late 2014 with more than three decades combined experience, MGCParanormal
has investigated all aspects of the paranormal. Their ghost hunting sites include
Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky; McNutt House in Vicksburg, Mississippi;
Mary C. O’Keefe in Ocean Springs, Mississippi’ and Beauvior in Biloxi, Mississippi,
where they were the first paranormal team allowed.
MGCParanormal also specializes in cryptozoology, with multiple in-state and out-of-state
bigfoot expeditions and Dogman 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
USM 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
