Part investigative and part historical, the eight-episode limited series will hear a variety of first-person accounts from UFO sightings; a sampling of highlights are below:

  • Travis Walton, who was infamously abducted in 1975 and missing for five days, with six other witnesses present
  • Charles Halt and Jim Penniston, In Suffolk, England, retired Air Force officers encountered a UFO that landed on their military base in 1980, in what is now known as the Rendlesham Forest Incident
  • Ryan Graves and Kevin Day, two Navy pilots who witnessed the modern day UFO encounters known now as “Tic Tac” and “Go Fast.”  These videos were linked from the Pentagon and published by the New York Times in 2017. The Pentagon later responded saying the videos are real and they don’t know what they are.
