Happy Wednesday, Liminal Folk – who’s ready for tonight?!
#WUFO is evolving more and more – this is Week 4!
For those returning, WELCOME BACK! In past posts, we shared info on exactly how this event started, and what folks can do to participate in case of inclement weather/inaccessibility (with links to virtual telescopes/live sky feeds/guided meditations for contact). You can read those posts here and here.
We have punch cards, a UFO water recipe, weekly astrology side quests…OH MY!
Before we get into last week’s recap, we have a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for y’all:
These last few weeks, folks have been asking if there’s some centralized place we could all “gather” for information, a “check-in”, and eventually weekly live stream(s).
Facebook just wasn’t doing it for us, so we decided to stake a little corner of the internet for WUFO! We would like to officially announce the launch of wufo.watch!
This site will hold space for everything WUFO-related: punchcards, weekly recap posts, cloudy night solutions, stargazing sidequests, ufo water recipes, and above all – a place for you to share your experiences watching for UFOs! Much like Wednesday Night UFO Watch in itself, the website too will evolve as we continue each week.
Now, let’s take a quick look back:
Last Week’s Recap
UFO tea, pretzels, and pancakes, whaaaaa? That’s right! Bex from Liminal.Earth had some UFO water that had been left out the last 2 Wednesdays and decided to make a few goodies with it.
For starters, she made a tea with UFO water, butterfly pea flower, chamomile, with a few drops of a medicinal mushroom mixed tincture (we’ve been trying a few things while tossing around the idea of there being a link between extraterrestrials and fungi).
Bex used the recipe that was included in last week’s post – you can find the recipe here. Both salty and sweet options were made – original salty/buttery with vegan nacho cheese and cinnamon caramel! Not exactly sure why we were given this message of UFO pretzels, but just getting delicious pretzels out of it is cool, so…
UFO food TikToks will be up soon!
We held another Estes Method Session live on Tiktok, and had a good time watching to see if the UFO tea would do anything to Bex. Nothing too out of the ordinary or negative to report! Phew!
10:00 PM PST rolls around. We each step out and attempt to watch the skies, but clouds were coming in quick.
Jeremy from Liminal.Earth centrifuges some mushroom ink with UFO water
Around 11:00 PM PST, Garrett from Liminal.Earth hops on Tiktok live and makes magic sentences for folks!
Amazing news: we scored passes to this AMAZING event: “The Birthplace of the Men in Black”. Sponsored by who? Why, the Maury Island Incident Historical Society, of course!
Bex and Garrett will be attending the event, filming, and talking with various folks within the historical society. Guess who will be joining them?
You may know him from his incredible documentary series podcast, Euphomet. We are SO excited to have him join us for an in-person WUFO!
Bex reports monthly on Jim’s radio show Nite Drift once a month. This past Sunday, they discussed Wednesday Night UFO Watch – you can listen to that episode here.
After the event, the three of us will be heading to a local beach to set up for our first group watch! At 9:00 PM PST, we will be going live on the Liminal.Earth TikTok for our weekly Estes Method session. This time, Garrett and Jim will be present in-person to ask questions. Jeremy will be running tech support and moderating while we are rockin’. Tune in!
And now it’s time for Maighdlin’s weekly segment:
Every week we’ll also be featuring an astronomical side-quest from estimable astrologer Maighdlin Kelly! While you’re looking at the sky, take a moment to get to know it better.
This week’s Wednesday Night UFO side-quest is here! We’re gonna find ALDEBARAN in the TAURUS constellation. This will be easy, just look for the red star by the Moon! – Maighdlin, @Weird_Astrology
This will also be one of the last weeks to view Jupiter after sunset. That’s an easy one to spot too, just look west after sunset. You’ll see a “star” which is actually Jupiter. Can’t miss it. After mid-Feb however, Jupiter will be invisible (close to the sun) until April.
The last few Wednesday nights, @unexplainablescreations has been posting amazing timelapse videos of themselves creating awesome art during Wednesday Night UFO Watch! You HAVE to check them out, such great work –
Using the Mushroom Tarot Deck to get a feel of the overall “vibe”, Bex pulls the Ace of Pentacles.
Earthstar (the suit of pentacles in this deck is an Earthstar mushroom)
Complex network that success requires
“Equal footing plus equal exchange equals success for all”
“Put in the work and reap the rewards”
Using the Oracle of the Hypogeum to ask the general question of “What can we expect tonight?” in mind for tonight, Bex pulls the Acho card.
Tune in for our weekly live Estes Method Session over on TikTok at 9:00 PM PST.
Use hashtag #WUFO on Twitter, IG, Tiktok, etc. to share what you’re experiencing in real-time – we’re hoping to make a cute montage of all y’alls posts one day.
Most importantly, in some fashion, look UP! Use an app, your mind, your eyes – whatever you can. And know that you are not alone in your endeavors!
This concludes today’s WUFO post – we are SO excited for tonight’s watch! Live tweet with us, and share anything interesting that happens with ya in the comments below!
