About Marc D’Antonio

Marc D’Antonio has a degree in Astronomy and is Chief Photo/Video Analyst for the largest Aerial Anomaly organization on Earth. He is the host of SkyTour Radio on KGRA radio and is the host and creator of SkyTour LiveStream with Marc Dantonio on YouTube where people can go to watch LIVE as beautiful deep night sky objects materialize before their eyes in mere seconds courtesy of very sensitive cameras and the SkyTour Observatory research telescopes.  Marc is the CEO of FX Models, a model making and visual/special effects company specializing in digital/physical models, and organic special effects in the film industry. He has an extensive work history in the Film and Television arena appearing regularly on a number of networks and television shows including “NASA’s Unexplained Files” on the Discovery Channel and “What On Earth!” on the Science Channel. He is characterized as the Voice of Science Reason basing his discussions on the science we know with a little bit of speculation on his part. His efforts creating the Aerial Anomaly Detection system, a remote system to detect any advanced propulsion at play in our local universe, with Academy Award winner Douglas Trumbull will attempt to answer the question of whether we are alone. If extraterrestrial intelligence has managed to ply the vast gulf between the stars and reach us, then science should be able to tell us so. Such results will back up the stories we so often hear from those who have encountered something strange … in our skies.

Marc D’Antonio has a degree in Astronomy and is the Mutual UFO Network’s (MUFON) Chief Photo/Video Analyst , host of SkyTour Radio on KGRA, and host and creator of SkyTour LiveStream with Marc Dantonio on YouTube where people can go to watch live as  beautiful deep sky objects materialize before their eyes in mere seconds courtesy of the the SkyTour Observatory and its research telescope.  Marc is the CEO of FX Models, a model making and visual/special effects company specializing in digital/physical models, and organic special effects in the film industry. He has an extensive work history in the Film and Television arena appearing regularly on a number of networks and television shows including “NASA’s Unexplained Files” on the Discovery Channel, “What On Earth!” on the Science Channel, “In Search Of” hosted by Zachary Quinto, and a variety of other shows. He is characterized as the Voice of Science Reason yet fully expects alien intelligence is out there and possibly even here visiting us at the Earth. His efforts creating the Aerial Anomaly Detection System (formerly called UFOTOG2), a remote system  to detect advanced propulsion at play in our local universe with Academy Award winner Douglas Trumbull promises to bring ufology into the 21st Century. If extraterrestrial intelligence has managed to ply the vast gulf between the stars and reach us, then science should be able to tell us so. Such results will back up the stories we so often hear from those who have encountered something strange … in our skies.

TV and Film Industry: Marc appears on a number of networks including ABC,CNN, Discovery, Sci-Fi, History, National Geographic, and Science channels, performing on-camera work in his role as a UFO investigator, scientific principle presenter, and photo/video analyst. In addition to such roles he also creates visual effects props, directs visual effects shots, and creates computer generated imagery (CGI) for productions.

Marc appears regularly on a number of TV series, notably NASA’s Unexplained Files seen on Discovery Channel creating science demos and offering discussion and opinion on the scientific search for Life in the Universe. In addition, he also appears regularly on the series “What On Earth” seeking answers to perplexing Earth mysteries brought to us via Earth orbiting satellites.

Currently Marc and FX Models have teamed up with Academy Award winning producer and director Douglas Trumbull to create major science fiction films and television series’ that explore human kind’s place in the Universe. He has been performing for live audiences since the age of 12, and states that the TV and Film industry are far more forgiving than a live audience when things go wrong!

UFO Arena: Besides his MUFON duties, Marc delivers many presentations around the country at some of the largest UFO conferences including several Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Symposiums and International UFO Congress conferences appearing as a speaker to discuss the science we DO know. As such he is a voice of reason amidst what at times is chaos.

Marc has also put together a team of top US scientists who are working together with UFOTOG Pioneer Douglas Trumbull to create high end autonomous ground units to search for evidence of extraterrestrial presence potentially using crowd-sourcing methodologies.

Currently authoring a book, Marc has taken his Astronomy focus on Exoplanets and put it to print. Tentatively titled “The Populated Universe” the book explores the scientific search for extraterrestrial life and makes the case for what he believes is the predisposition of the Universe to the creation of the building blocks of life and perhaps life itself.

In support of the quest for extraterrestrial life, Marc originated and operates the SkyTour LiveStream from the John Zack Memorial Observatory located currently in CT. This live broadcast on clear nights brings the wonders of the Universe to people worldwide and viewers and live participants are taught about the origins of the stars, Earth, and planets and learn about Exoplanet science.

His latest project is taking on the role of Host on his new show on KGRA radio called SkyTour Radio. The weekly 2 hour show Sunday evenings at 8PM Eastern focuses on the science and potential science surrounding the search for extraterrestrial life. Listeners get to hear about the origins of the many outlandish and amazing objects that the Universe has spawned with an eye on science. The show also presents information that is science based on interstellar propulsion and offers speculation on what we may find once we leave the Earth.

Background: Marc’s degree is in Astronomy, and he has spent decades capturing hundreds of thousands of images of many kinds of sky phenomena using a diverse range of photographic gear ranging from small cameras and backyard telescopes to large multi-million-dollar professional telescopes in large research observatories.

Marc operates the John Zack Memorial Observatory in CT. This observatory is nearly fully automated for online use and will be moved to Arizona in the near future under a fully dark sky when all automations systems are installed, tested, and completed.

Once Computer Generated Imagery programs and image analysis programs became more readily available he began to work with such software to create his own imagery and to augment and analyze existing imagery. His unique blend of stage performance experience, Astronomical, UFO, and Computer-Generated Model Making backgrounds come together in his photo analysis work, where he has been utilizing advanced software toolsets for many years to coax data out of imagery.

When he isn’t creating Digital or Physical Models for clients or productions, he can usually be found working on the UFOTOG2 concept , in his own observatory, or utilizing remote observatories worldwide to obtain nightly photographic and spectral data for analysis from mountaintop telescopes.
