September 2013 - Malvern Hills Sky Watch 2013


BUFOG Malvern Hills Sky Watch 2013

Date: Saturday 14th September 2013
Time: 6pm onwards


Up until now BUFOG has held all its sky watches at Cannock Chase. However there are of course plenty of other vantage points perfect for sky watches in the Birmingham area. This time we have decided to hold one at the Malvern Hills. The actual location for the sky watch will be an area close to the highest peak of the hills, Worcestershire Beacon (weather permitting). This should provide a superb view of the sky in all directions.

The start time for the evening is 6pm, and we will initially meet at the Weatherspoons bar of the Foley Arms Hotel in Great Malvern for a social drink. Just before 7pm we will then drive in convoy to North Quarry car park. We will then head by foot to the sky watch location (Roughly 20 mins walk).

Everyone is welcome to attend, not just official members of Birmingham UFO Group. Feel free to bring along family, friends or pets. BUFOG member Paul has once again kindly offered to provide free BBQ food for everyone attending. If the kebabs he cooked last time are anything to go by it’s sure to be a meal fit for a king! Whether or not we have any sightings, it’s sure to be a fun and social time with plenty of UFO-related discussion.

There is no official end time for the sky watch, you are free to leave whenever you wish. However due to the walking distance between North Quarry and the sky watch location we will make a group decision on when to wrap things up on the night itself. This will likely be in the early hours of the morning.
