Part 1: JAL: NOVEMBER 17, 1986 – A Japanese airline crew is en route from Paris to Tokyo with a cargo load of Beaujolais wine. As Captain Terauchi and his crew are crossing Alaska, they encounter blindingly bright lights flying in their airspace. These lights illuminate the cockpit and seem to be keeping pace with the Boeing 747. Captain Terauchi then reports seeing two unidentified crafts, one the size of a ‘mothership’. The UFO is tracked by both ground and airborne radar, though its origins remain unknown.
Part 2: CRASH COURSE: AUGUST 27, 1979 – Deputy Sheriff Val Johnson is on patrol near Stephen, Minnesota in the early morning hours when he sees a beam of light shining down on the road ahead. As he continues to drive, the beam of light engulfs his car. Johnson briefly loses consciousness and wakes up to discover that he had skidded off the road and he’s suffering eye damage similar to welder’s burns. Both his wristwatch and the car clock have stopped for exactly 14 minutes.
Part 1: FIRE IN THE SKY: DECEMBER 9, 1965: It’s early evening in rural Pennsylvania when several dozen witnesses report seeing a fiery object falling through the sky and landing in nearby woods. Volunteer Firefighter, Jim Romansky, is called to the scene to investigate what they think is a crashed plane. As Romansky combs the woods near Kecksburg, he spots a glowing acorn shaped metallic object. As he moves in to investigate the strange craft, the military orders Romansky and any other civilians to leave the area. The military denies ever finding a craft in the woods that night.
Part 2: ARIZONA OBJECTS: MARCH 13, 1997: Thousands of people in Phoenix, Arizona are stargazing in search of the Hale-Bopp comet, which is supposed to be visible in the night sky. Instead, hundreds of witnesses report seeing strange lights flying in a formation, while hundreds more report boomerang and triangular-shaped crafts the size of three football fields flying low and soundlessly over their homes. The U.S. Air Force immediately denies anything unusual in the airspace that night.
Part 1: HOLY SHIP: AUGUST 11, 1972 – A number of Christian youth have assembled for a retreat on a hillside in Taize, France when they see what they think is a falling star. But the ‘star’ lands on a hill opposite them, and is making a vibration sound when it lights up. It appears to emit solid beams of light for over two hours. Some of the teenagers walk closer to the object and shine their flashlights, but the beams of their flashlights bend as though they are being repelled by the object.
Part 2: BELGIAN WAVE: NOVEMBER 29, 1989 – Two Belgian police officers are on routine patrol close to the German border when they see an empty field lit up by intensely bright lights. At first, they think it is a helicopter. But as they get closer, they see a large triangular-shaped craft moving slowly across the field. As it moves away, they decide to chase it. They follow the craft to a lake where it hovers and shoots out what appear to be red balls of light. Thirty different groups of witnesses, including three separate teams of police officers report seeing this low flying object in the sky that night. It becomes the first of many sightings between 1989-1990 throughout Belgium.
