UUFOH is had an open skywatch September 13th -14th at the "Wedge Overlook"
near Buckhorn Wash.
Nicknamed "Utah's Little Grand Canyon", the Wedge Overlook provides visitors with spectacular views, wildlife watching as well as primitive camping. For photographers, the Wedge Overlook is never the same. Shadows and light play on the sheer rock surfaces creating eerie images.
Located in the beautiful and rugged San Rafael Swell, the Wedge is a deep canyon carved by the San Rafael River. Strong winds blow up from the bottom and birds are often seen playing on the air currents. One sight you don't want to miss is that of a full moon rising over the Wedge, it is spectacular!
The Utah UFO Hunters & SLC MUFON welcomed everyone to join us for this skywatch, The turn out was small but high quality both in members & food!
The Views were Spectacular! We will have another Skywatch here next year.
Here are some of the photos taken during The UUFOH Wedge Skywatch

Some spectacular UFO sightings, or as some have call it 'angels', have been reported in this area. UUFOH has received numerous reports from this area this year, as stated above, it also has some spectacular views and beautiful scenery, making it a great place to have an open skywatch and possibly see some phenomenon. This is from one witness that visited the Wedge Overlook:
"MAN,THE SHEER NUMBER OF THESE THINGS WAS AWESOME.....IT WAS WIERD....THEY SWAM LIKE FISH THROUGH THE SKY, OCCASIONALLY ZIPPING BACK AND FORTH AT EXTREME ANGLES AND SPEED....NO "FIRE" OR EXHAUST COULD BE SEEN, SEMI SEE-THROUGH WITH COLOR-CHANGING GLOWS...WOW!...."

I hope you all had as much on the Skywatch at the Wedge Overlook as I did! In fact, I have to admit that I got sidetracked and didn't do as much skywatching as I had planned on. But, I was more diligent on the Friday night before the main watch.
Anyway, my nephew left two coolers there with the intention of picking them up on Sunday after we returned from our campsite. However, when we returned everyone had already left and the campsite was very clean. If you have one of these coolers please let me know so I can come and pick them up. one had diabeties supplies (insulin) in it which should have been left in the car. If you have one or both of these coolers please let me know at email@example.com <so I can pick them up.
A UFO was spotted that night! I don't know if anyone in our group saw it though. We meet up with some friends who were camping in the Black Box area, about 15 miles east of where we were, and they saw a "bright low flying light, flying in a zig zag path from south to north and it was definetly not an airplane." They weren't looking for UFO's, but it caught the attention of one of the group who pointed it out to the others. They said they saw it about 10:30 (no one had a watch) and watched it for about 15 - 20 seconds before they lost sight of it. We were in a hurry to get back to Salt Lake so I didn't get more details, but I'll see if I can follow up on it later.
Thanks again for the great Skywatch Meet and I hope to see you at the
