The Science Channel to premiere new UFO shows at UFO Conference

The Science Channel has partnered up with the International UFO Congress in Scottsdale to screen episodes of their new UFO TV show Close Encounters, which features some of the conference’s speakers. The screenings are free and open to the public, and are meant to help promote the Science Channel’s Are We Alone month in March.

According to the Science Channel, Are We Alone month is focused on the “search for answers to bold new questions about mankind’s search for extraterrestrial life.”

That makes Close Encounters a perfect fit. The show examines some of the most credible and mysterious UFO sightings ever to be investigated. The show’s website says, “These are the stories that have captivated experts and researchers’ imaginations.”

Some of the experts featured in the show will be speaking at the UFO Congress. These screenings will be the first chance for American audiences to see the show. Close Encounters will premiere on the Science Channel on March 4.

    Recently I watched and read about UFO’s. I noticed that in most cases witnesses describes:
    Electromagnetic forces:
    tingling and numbness – Can be recreate by high freq. high voltage (Tesla Coil)
    object lights – Can be explained by high voltage ionization (Electroluminescence).
    magnetism – per se
    Innercia passive:
    acceleration – theory of Electrogravitics.
    object over water – need for deuterium
    mild radioactivity – fusion reactor

    Lets try to remove improbabilities from it now….

    Okay Dirk dude. There was a sighting in Kansas City, Kansas August 12th, 1961. If that is the exact date that you remember. Then that’s all the evidence I need.

    That is so neat that Dirk Feldspar’s sighting could be one on record! I would be blown away knowing something I saw ages ago ended up being a recorded event! I’m with you Billy Cluff, that’s all the evidence I’d need too! I hope some day he answers you!

    I’m glad I so randomly stumbled onto this site and comments.

    OMG, I absolutely LOVE the Science channel! I am so glad that we finally have a channel to help prove the FACT that we are not alone in the universe. And as Jodi Foster said in Contact, “If we are the only life out there? That is a massive waste of space!” Keep em coming. I can’t WAIT for We Are Not Alone month!!!
