Close Encounters S01E02 Fire in the Sky / Arizona Objects
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 acornshaped 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.
