Our goal and purpose is to be the biggest and most informed UFO group in the world. Why? Because we want to make a change and there is power in numbers! And unfortunately, most of the "UFO" community is saturated with purposely seeded disinfo; we aim to address these issues. We support MUFON, Disclosure Project, CSETI, The Orion Project, and World UFO Day. It is time for the UFO community to unite!
WUFOG is well on its well to achieving its stated goal and purpose. In the short span of two (2) years, WUFOG has exploded onto the UFO scene!
World UFO Group (WUFOG) started on November 7th, 2011. In just 21 months it has grown into one of the largest online UFO communities, now with more than 10,000 members.
The mission and goal for WUFOG is to avoid speculation as much as possible about the UFO phenomenon, instead providing factual and helpful information. We envision a future in which UFOs go beyond speculation, to become a part of daily life.
The three components to this group areMeetupfor meeting notifications,Facebookfor commentary and updates, andTwitterfor immediate access to around-the-clock news feed and sighting reports from other UFO-related sources. (Meetup.com/worldufogroup ); (www.facebook.com/#!/groups/242073659172278) www.twitter.com/Worldufogroup [ @Worldufogroup ]). Facebook is the oldest and largest component, Twitter is the newest and 2nd largest component, Meetup is the second oldest and smallest component. Last year WUFOG assumed administrative responsibility for the Phoenix ET Group (meetup) in the Phoenix, AZ metro area.
In collaboration with the World UFO Day Organization (WUFODO), the WUFOG Meetup page (mentioned above) also lists planned events for World UFO Day, which is dedicated to bringing wider attention to the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and is celebrated on July 2nd. Not just a day of celebration and fun, World UFO Day is meant to raise awareness of the UFO phenomenon, acknowledge its reality as a worldwide occurrence, and encourge our governments to do the same by official disclosure.
It's also hoped that scores of people around the world watching the skies on that day and night, equipped with as much video or photographic equipment as possible, will capture visual evidence.
Originally, World UFO Day was celebrated on June 24 and July 2nd; later, the World UFO Day Organization (WUFODO), in Amsterdam, declared July 2nd to be the official day of celebration. WUFODO is also responsible for organizing the get-togethers in many countries, but it is strongly encouraged that people initiate and conduct their own activities. Visit www.worldufoday.com/activities.htm for a list of WUFODO-scheduled events.
Promoted by newspapers and radio stations, the very first World UFO Day celebrations took place on June 24, 2001. That date was chosen because it's the anniversary of the famous UFO sighting of pilot Kenneth Arnold, in the skies over Mount Rainier in Washington state, in 1947.
