It’s #WUFO Time! Welcome to #WUFO Week 31! 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!

Tonight’s Special Guests
Tonight we’re excited to welcome Adler Kuper and Haley Pearce! Adler and Haley recently visited Point Pleasant, West Virginia, home of everybody’s favorite cryptid: MOTHMAN! They’ll be on to regale us with the details of their experiences– this will be SUPER fun!
“I’m the founder of a small club of weirdos called MOCAP, the Mid-Ohio Center for Anomalous Phenomena, and will be the host of the upcoming podcast The Requiem Room. My goal is to use my education in video and audio production to create content that not only tells the story of the Phenomena, but also fosters discussion among enthusiasts about how it works and what it could all mean.”
“I’m a Chemistry PhD student studying chemical gardens as a way to (potentially!) gain insight into the origins of life question. I’ve always been interested in strange things – between a dad who openly shared his experiences growing up in a haunted farmhouse and an uncle who told me stories of his UFO sightings in and around our town, it only made sense that I grew up to be a full on weirdo.”
Stargazing Side Quest
Your Wednesday Night UFO Watch party side quest is here, courtesy of Astrologer Extraordinaire Maighdlin Kelly:
Huzzah, we have made it to another Wednesday! That means it’s #WUFO side quest time! For week 31 – August 17th 2022 – we will be looking up towards a previous side quest target for a meteor shower called KAPPA CYGNIDS!
Last week was the Perseids meteor shower, but the full Moon was demanding most of the attention in the night sky so I didn’t use that meteor shower for the side quest. Now that the Moon is waning, it will start rising later so we’ll have more opportunities to see fainter meteors. Not sure what the difference is between meteor, meteorite, comet, fireball, etc? Check out the American Meteor Society which has a ton of resources. You can also report fireball sightings! I also did a class called Stargazing for Paranormal Investigators that goes into differentiating the above from planets & other things that get mistaken for UFOs. The recording + materials from this workshop that was held live in June amsmeteors.org.can be purchased here.
Let us know if you find any meteors tonight! Will you be wishing upon a star, binocular observing, naked-eye observing, seeking contact with the spirit of any celestial entities? Let us know! Tag #WUFO me and @LiminalEarth so we can boost and celebrate your achievement!

Last Week’s Recap
Last week Bex updated us with a Special Report from an Undisclosed Location! We skipped the usual Estes session, and instead Jeremy and Garrett told some stories and had some show-and-tell. We also tried a DREAM EXPERIMENT and asked listeners and followers to report Tarot-related dreams. We’ll discuss potential results tonight!
Let’s see how other folks spent WUFO last week:

Who’s going to be “looking up” with us?!
