Bon Voyage, Lee Speigel: Let's Send Lee to Space!

A Go Fund Me account has been set up by Buck Wolf 

Our friend, fellow journalist, and famed UFO researcher Lee Speigel passed away on Aug 14 — and those close to him are planning a final salute to this great man. We are sending his cremated ashes into space.


“Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, noted astronomy Clyde Tombaugh and legendary Harvard professor Timothy Leary are among several notables who have been memorialized with a space burial. We plan to do the same for Lee, and we’re asking for your help.

Host Bio


Lee Speigel has presented credible, compelling stories about UFOs, science, and the paranormal to the public since 1975 when he produced a documentary record album, “UFOs: The Credibility Factor,” for CBS Inc. It marked the first time that a major recording company offered a UFO-related product via a prime-time TV infomercial. During production of his UFO album, and at the request of noted astronomer J. Allen Hynek, Lee went to North Carolina to investigate a series of unusual and unexplained UFO reports. It resulted in the first well-documented, multiple-witness, triangular-shaped UFO incident in America highlighted in David Marler’s 2013 book, “Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation.” Speigel and numerous law enforcement officers were among the many witnesses to this close encounter event.


Lee’s radio career literally took off in 1978 when he began his first of eight years writing, producing and hosting nearly 1,500 local and national programs on NBC Radio, dealing with UFOs and unexplained phenomena. In 1978, he became the only person in history to produce a milestone UFO presentation at the United Nations. Also during this time, Lee was a feature writer for OMNI, the popular consumer science and paranormal magazine. His first cover story, in the April 1979 issue, focused on the November 1978 United Nations UFO event.

Between 2010-2017, Lee was the chief Huffington Post writer of hundreds of stories crossing the fields of UFOs and Science. Two of those stories involved some highly unusual materials from the site of a reported UFO crash in Russia. In 2020, Speigel co-produced and co-wrote “The Phenomenon”, a thought-provoking, critically acclaimed UFO documentary from director James Fox.


Speigel hosted the weekly “Edge of Reality Radio” program (first broadcast 40 years ago in 1982 over WNBC Radio in New York), Thursday nights on the KUNX Digital Broadcasting Network. He’s also managing editor of the Un-X Magazine, writing and editing articles always with a focus on current events, research and discoveries of the overlapping worlds of UFOs, paranormal and the unexplained.
