Peter McCue Lecture
Misreporting the Paranormal 

Citing case examples, Peter McCue will discuss the misreporting that’s all too common with regard to supposedly paranormal and UFO events. This can arise from factors such as an excessive use of pseudonyms, hoaxing, and inadequate research. Peter will also mention claims that deception and obfuscation are sometimes perpetrated by agencies of the state with regard to these phenomena.

Dr Peter McCue is a retired clinical psychologist with a longstanding interest in anomalous phenomena. He’s the author of two books: 'Zones of Strangeness: An Examination of Paranormal and UFO Hot Spots' (AuthorHouse, Bloomington, Indiana, 2012) and 'Paranormal Encounters on Britain’s Roads: Phantom Figures, UFOs and Missing Time' (The History Press, Stroud, 2018). Peter is currently working on a book looking at anomalous experiences in British woodland. He lives in East Dunbartonshire.

Returning to BUFOG for the second time, you can be assured of a thought-provoking and well reasearched talk from Peter. In addition to the lecture, BUFOG Chairman will cover the latest goings on in the world of ufology and give an overview of UFO Truth Conference 2018. See you there!

16th June 2018 - Henley-In-Arden Sky Watch


Henley-In-Arden is a picturesque town in Warwickshire, England. The town is surrounded by some gradually sloping grass-covered hills which have a nice clear view of the sky, making it an ideal location for a sky watch. We've never held a watch here before so felt it was time to sort one out!

We will initially be meeting at The Nags Head, 161 High Street, B95 5BA at 8.30pm, a nice little pub with its own off road car park.

At around 9.30pm we will then drive a short distance to the sky watch location - a hill to the East of the town accessible via public footpath from the end of Beaudesert Lane. There are parking spaces along the lane which we can utilise. We will then head up the slope and find a suitable location at the summit.

As with most of our sky watches, we aim to stay there till the early hours of the morning (weather permitting). You are free to leave earlier if you need to. Dave will be bringing along some disposable BBQs so feel free to bring along some food to cook. Other snacks and drinks are also greatly encouraged!

Despite the fact it is the start of the summer months, it can still get quite chilly after dark so it is recommended you bring with you some warm and waterproof clothing. You may also wish to bring along camping chairs / picnic rugs to sit on. As we will be relatively close to the town, fireworks and bonfires are not permitted.

Please spread the word about the sky watch, anyone is welcome to attend not just BUFOG members. Children and animals most welcome. We hope to see you there!
