This is the official website of Birmingham UFO Group. The group began in 2007 and continues to be one of the most active UFO groups in the UK.

On Thursday evening I'll be giving a lecture all about the links between Ufology and the music industry. I'll be delving into the history of UFO themed tracks, going over many themed bands and songs and covering actual experiences by musical artists. The evening will contain numerous live music performances, recorded interviews and music vids. It's going to be a treat for both your eyes and ears and I guarantee a fun an informative time! Hope to see you there for it at our usual venue from 7.30pm. For further details see our Events & Lectures page or get in touch with me directly - Chairman Dave
Thanks to everyone who turned up for the sky watch last night. It was the biggest turn out we've yet had making it a truly superb event. After socialising at The Barns a while we then headed out to the chase. It was a really nice clear night with only a bit of cloud, so as with previous sky watches the weather was on our side. Not much activity in the sky, certainly nothing which couldn't be easily explained, but it was a great evening of stories by firelight, BBQ food and paranormal chit chat. Plus a mysterious and terrifying sighting of a half man-half pig hybrid. More of that (including photos) in my full write up which will be on the site soon.
BUFOG are watching the skies over Cannock Chase on Saturday evening. We are initially meeting up at the bar of The Barns on Cock Sparrow Lane, and then moving on from there to the location. For further details check the Events & Lectures page. Everyone welcome, hope to see you there!
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. Or if you want more details about Scottish Paranormal Festival check out the advert for it here instead...
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.
