Two sky watches on the horizon folks! First of all, as previously mentioned, BUFOG will be heading back out to Cannock Chase on 13th September. Secondly BUFOG's Chairman Dave will be speaking at the Scottish Paranormal Festival, taking place in Stirling between 31st October - 2nd November. As part of this festival he and Malcolm Robinson from Strange Phenomena Investigations have decided to organise a sky watch at famous UFO hot spot Bonnybridge. The watch will be taking place late evening on Saturday 1st November. For details of both sky watches see our Events & Lectures page here.

Thanks to those of you who attended the meeting last night. I felt the unanimous view was that the contact documentary The Hidden Hand was one of the best documentaries on the subject yet created. If you wish to purchase a copy of your own please visit http://www.hiddenhandthemovie.com/. Coming up next month we've got two great events for you to attend. The first is a sky watch on Cannock Chase, which is going to occur on the evening of Saturday 13th September. Then on the evening of Thursday 18th September I will be giving a talk on UFOs & The Music Industry, looking into many UFO themed bands and songs and covering experiences reported by musical artists. The lecture will include two live music performances and a video interview. Full details can be found on our Events & Lectures page here. Hope you can make it to one/both events! Both non-members and members welcome, please help spread the word.
On Wednesday evening it's time for another BUFOG meeting. This time we will be showing new contact documentary The Hidden Hand. Chairman Dave will also give a run down of the recent UFO Truth Magazine conference. You are more than welcome to attend, hope to see you there! For full details see our Events & Lectures page here
A new case report has been added to the site covering a glowing bar-shaped UFO surrounded in energy which was observed over Stirchley in Birmingham in October 2010. What makes this case even more extra-ordinary is that it near matches another sighting from 1999 by two police officers over the same area! This previous sighting already exists on the PRUFOS police UFO sightings database, and has been replicated inside the report with permission for ease of comparison. Click here for the report.
The out-of-body experience research project being conducted by the brother of BUFOG's Chairman has now been extended to 14th August. If you have ever had what you believe could have been an out-of-body experience you are invited to participate anonymously in the project by answering a questionnaire. Click here to go to the advert which contains further details.
During Chairman Dave's upcoming lecture on UFOs & The Music Industry, set to take place on Thursday 18th September there will be two live music performances. There will be a track from Unnamed 23-1 themed on ET contact. And Dave's wife Katie Hodrien will be singing and playing a folk rock track she has written themed on time travel and particle physics. Be there for what is sure to be a varied, interesting and fun evening. For details of the lecture see our Events & Lectures page here
On the evening of Saturday 13th September, BUFOG will once more be returning to Cannock Chase for a sky watch. We plan to initially meet at the bar of The Barns for a social, before heading on up to the chase. Everyone is welcome not just official BUFOG members. For full details including location maps and photos see our Events & Lectures page here
There's a new case report on the site which covers an absolutely incredible multiple witness sighting of a glowing disc-shaped UFO that was observed on a morning in April 1972 over Walsall. Do have a read of this stunning case here, or go find it in the Investigated UFO Reports page.
Thanks to everyone who came down last night for our July meeting. Big apologies about the tech issues with the new laptop, Microsoft doing its best to ruin the evening once more! I will ensure its sorted out for next month, promise! A massive thanks to Andy Russell for coming on down and giving a superb talk even with the issues going on. It truly was fascinating hearing about some of the cases he has managed to obtain from the MOD's archives. Next month on Wed 20th August we are showing the new contact documentary The Hidden Hand, check out the Events & Lectures page for further details
