November 2014 - Bonnybridge Sky Watch

1st November 2014

Malcolm Robinson and Dave Hodrien are dedicated UK-based ufologists. Malcolm is the Chairman of Strange Phenomena Investigations (SPI). Dave is the Chairman and lead investigator for Birmingham UFO Group. They will both be speaking at the Scottish Paranormal Festival being held at Stirling between 31st October - 2nd November.

As part of the festival they have decided (weather permitting) to hold a UFO sky watch at Bonnybridge, a village 10 miles South of Stirling. Bonnybridge is one of the UK's most renowned UFO "hot spots". With many interesting sightings over the years, it is the perfect place to hold a sky watch!

For festival goers, the plan is to initially meet up at 10pm at the car park outside the front of Albert Halls in Stirling. We will then travel in convoy to Bonnybridge and park up at the Scotmid Co-operative shop on Bonnybridge High Street at approx 10.25pm. After waiting here for a short while to allow for others to join us, we will then once more travel in convoy to the moors behind High Bonnybridge along the B816. The exact location for the watch will be decided by Malcolm in the days leading up to it.

Anyone either attending the festival in Stirling or at Bonnybridge on the evening of 1st November is welcome to come along, whether you have an interest in the UFO subject or are relatively new to it. Malcolm will give an overview of some of the sightings which have taken place around Bonnybridge over the years, and Dave will provide some details of some decent cases from around Birmingham while out at the sky watch location.

The sky watch is likely to go on till the early hours of the morning. You are free to leave earlier if you have your own transport, otherwise we will make a group decision as to when we wish to head for home based on the weather and how everyone is feeling. If you are planning to leave early please ensure that you take note of the route back to Bonnybridge, as it's easy to get lost!

Due to the time of year it is possible that the weather will be too bad for the sky watch to go ahead, however if it is cloudy or there is light rain it is still likely to take place. If you plan to attend it is recommended you wear warm clothes and bring waterproofs just in case. A torch, binoculars and a camera (especially if it has a night vision setting) are highly recommended. You may also wish to bring along snacks and soft-drinks.

If you have any questions or wish to confirm your attendance in advance please contact either Malcolm Robinson on, or Dave Hodrien on or 07990576577.
