It’s #WUFO Time! We hope you’re having a great summer! This is #WUFO Week 28! If you’re new, here’s a FAQ that will get you started. Reminder: send us a picture of your completed punch card and we’ll send you a little something in the mail!
At its very core, WUFO is a fun break from the week to hang out and enjoy each others’ virtual presences. You can do as little as go outside (or check a sky cam) at 10 PM your local time, or as much as hosting your own WUFO watch party (virtually or IRL)! WUFO has also created itself in a way and is continuing to grow all on its own – we’re here for the ride, wherever it may take us. We’re glad you’re here, too!
Weekly Live Contact Session
Stargazing Side Quest
Your Wednesday Night UFO Watch party side quest, courtesy of Astrologer Extraordinaire Maighdlin Kelly is here!
We found Vega last month and Altair last week. Now for the week of July 27 2022 we will be looking for a distant star that is 200x bigger than our sun and completes the Summer Triangle: DENEB! Deneb is the brightest star in the constellation Cygnus the swan. This constellation includes the asterism called the Northern Cross. An asterism is basically an “unofficial” constellation that can be a smaller part of a constellation like the Northern Cross, or include stars from several constellations like the Summer Triangle.
To learn more about Deneb & some fun facts about why its so hard to figure out exactly how far away it is, read this!

Tonight’s WUFO Checklist:
- Set out UFO water
- Gather snacks
- Perform some groundwork/light meditation
- Use a night sky app or head outside to find Deneb
- Commune with nature and/or your loved ones
- Take a pic of your setup/activities and use tag #WUFO
Once 10:00 PM PST rolls around, we will head outside to look up and spend some time gazing at the sky. Bring plenty of snacks, blankets, and maybe some hagstone binoculars (if you just happen to have some around, like Jeremy). This concludes today’s WUFO post – we are SO excited for tonight’s watch! Who’s going to be “looking up” with us?!
