July 2012 - BUFOG Cannock Chase Skywatch 2012


In September of last year BUFOG organized its first official skywatch at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire. Despite not actually seeing any unusual aerial objects (other than a helicopter with all its lights switched off), the night was thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended. Shortly after we arrived the rain stopped and we enjoyed numerous atmospheric hours under a clear moonlit sky.

Cannock Chase is renowned for its UFO activity and is believed by some to be one of the UKs UFO hotspots. We figured that as we didn’t see any UFOs last time, maybe a return to the area might yield better results! So on Saturday 28th July 2012 we intend to once again head out for a skywatch on the Chase.

Whether you are an official BUFOG member or not you are more than welcome to join us on our quest! As we did last year, we initially plan to meet at the bar of The Barns hotel between 7.30-8.00pm. At around 8.30pm when the sun starts to set we will head on out to the same location as before, an area of Cannock Chase with good sky visibility in most directions. There is no set end time, you are free to stay as long as you wish. We will remain there until either everyone decides to head for home, or we get abducted by aliens (Note: Abduction not 100% guaranteed)

Date: Saturday 28th July 2012
Meet Up Time: 7.30-8.00pm
