10 Close Encounters
On Sunday, May 18, NBC's Dateline aired a UFO special titled "10 Close Encounters Caught on Tape", which presented a number of the more famous UFO cases in which video or photos of the event were recorded.
From "Star Trek" to "Star Wars" - we've always been fascinated by the idea that -- just maybe -- we're not alone in this great big universe of ours.
But what if you actually had a "close encounter" with a UFO? You could reach out to the "Men in Black," but more likely you'd reach for your camera. After all, the camera, doesn't lie. Does it?
You be the judge as we count down the 10 most out-of-this-world '"close encounters" we could find -- from Texas to New Zealand, to the "Belgian Triangle."
Below you can view all the video clips that ran on NBC's Dateline, or visit their website 10 Close Encounters Caught On Tape.
1. McMinnville Photos
In 1950, a farmer and his wife photographed what remains to this day one of the clearest photographs of an alleged UFO ever taken. UFO investigators have repeatedly authenticated the photos but skeptics think they are nothing more than a hoax – a model hung from the telephone wires above. Did an actual alien spacecraft visit McMinnville, Oregon? Perhaps the farmer and his wife merely photographed a plane or helicopter, thinking it was out-of-this-world. Or maybe, it was all an attention-grabbing hoax. What do you think?
2. Galactic encounter
The year was 1966 and on board the tiny Gemini IX spacecraft, two astronauts, Pete Conrad and Dick Gordon, noticed something strange outside one of the windows. The photos they took spawned a debate that continues to this day: exactly what did the astronauts see?
3. Florida mystery
On the gulf coast of Florida, in the town of Gulf Breeze, a UFO phenomenon was born. It was 1987 and some incredibly clear photos of what appear to be alien spacecrafts began to emerge. For almost 10 years, the strange sightings of lights in the sky and crafts continued. But is it possible it was all a big hoax? You be the judge.
