During the warmer months members gather together for skywatching hangouts through the state. These are not official or organized events; however, if you are in the area you are welcome to stop by and spend an evening looking at the stars, planets, and maybe some UFOS?
Communications Used During Our Informal Skywatches
Our skywatches are run, when possible, in conjunction with other UFO organizations within the state, region, and world. In order to communicate sightings reports, information, or any other updates during the skywatch we utilize several different forms of communication.
