Types Of Alien Encounter

Ever since I was a young boy I was fascinated with the paranormal, in particular UFO sightings. I had a large collection of published UFO report books which I scoured through whenever possible. I think it all started off when I first watched Close Encounters of The Third Kind with my father. Before you get started with UFO sightings it is best to have some knowledge on the types of alien encounter that have been classed over the years.

The first of the types of alien encounter is a 'close encounter of the first kind'. This is the flagship for all UFO sightings. An encounter of the first kind is when a UFO is spotted at reasonably close range. When this event is taking place nothing in the environment is being affected - it is just a sighting.

The second of types of alien encounter is the 'close encounter of the second kind'. Whilst being similar to the first kind there are differences with this - namely effects to the environment. The types of effects to the environment are the normal, run of the mill events like scorched earth left by the underside of the craft, change in weather, car radios or engines shutting down and other electrical anomalies.

Next we come to the types of alien encounter that first caught my interest - close encounters of the third kind. The film depicts actual skin to skin contact with the alien beings but this is not necessarily true. Close encounters of the third kind is when the occupants of the UFO are met at reasonably close quarters. Interaction with these occupants is not necessary to be classed as a third kind encounter.

A close encounter of the fourth kind is currently starting to become more and more popular on the modern day silver screen. The fourth kind is where things become a little scary. This is when you have proper contact with an alien occupant. This however, is not as 'friendly' as it may sound. Alien abductions are classed as the fourth kind and these often lead to experiments of some kind.

The final of the types of alien encounter is 'encounters of the fifth kind'. There is not much research or reports on this kind of encounter mainly because they are always nearly impossible to prove. Close encounters of the fifth kind is when you are taken on board an alien craft only for you to never return.

Out of all these types of alien encounter the first two encounters are the most frequently reported. Encounters of the third and fourth kind are reported but tend to get looked at with a bit of ridicule.
