Bite-sized knowledge for the hungrily curious

What are close encounters of the first and second kind?

The Answer

The First Kind – Observing a UFO

The Second Kind – Physical evidence of a UFO or Alien

The Third Kind – Contact with an alien.

This terminology was coined by UFO researcher and professor J. Allan Hynek in a section of his book The UFO Experience titled Close Encounters.

Dr. Hynek was a technical advisor in Steven Spielberg’s 1980 classic film Close Encounters of the Third Kind. He was paid a small fee and even made an uncredited cameo appearance as one of the researches in the climax of the movie.

For your entertainment, here is a translation of the musical interaction scene at the end of the film (warning: language may not be suitable for all viewers).
