July 2015 - BUFOG Kinver Edge Sky Watch


Date: Saturday 18th July 2015
Time: 8pm - Early hours

As the warm summer months are once again upon us we’ve decided it’s time we arranged another sky watching evening. This time we’ve decided to head to Kinver Edge just West of Kinver near Stourbridge for the first time. The area is made up of a high sandstone ridge and hill fort which provides wonderful views of the surroundings in addition to a clear view of the night sky.  There are also some rock homes carved into the sandstone which we may be able to see from a distance (though we assume will be closed after dark).

As is tradition for a BUFOG sky watch we will initially meet at a local pub for an initial chat and drink before heading on out to the location for the watch. We plan to meet at The Whittington pub South East of Kinver on the A449 around 8pm. Then around 9pm we will head out from there and drive to Kinver Edge. The designated parking place will be the junction between Church Road and Comber Road at the Eastern side of Kinver Edge. There will then be a short walk along a path up a gradual slope to reach the summit for the sky watch.

We plan to stay till the early hours of the morning. You are free to leave at any time you wish prior to this if you need to. The official end time will be determined on the night itself and will be influenced by everyone’s general mood as well as the weather conditions.

Our previous sky watch at Cannock Chase included an unidentified glowing light and a close encounter with the infamous Pig-Man, so who knows what adventures await us! You are more than welcome to come along whether you are a BUFOG member or not, and no matter what your level of interest in the UFO subject.

It’s recommended you bring with you warm/waterproof clothing (depending on the forecast), suitable footwear for walking, a torch, and binoculars or night vision camera if you have them. You may also wish to bring along food/drinks. Our regular BBQ Master Paul will also be attending with some hot food for those present!
