UFOs: Close Encounters

While seeing something strange far off in the sky, even with relative clarity and detail is interesting enough, incidents involving these apparent spacecrafts much more close-up are undoubtedly more detailed and intriguing.

From huge discs or triangles moving just feet from the ground, to seemingly crashed space vehicles being discovered and discreetly removed, if some accounts prove to be authentic, by dark military units, there are more accounts on record of such close encounters than we might think.

Most people know about the alleged Roswell crash in the summer of 1947, for example, but few are even aware of the claims of several more similar crashes in the United States alone in the late-1940s and 50s. What’s more, there are many more alleged crash and recovery incidents around the world, many of which often involve mysterious military units who remove any sign of the incident as if it never happened.

And what of the many claims on record of these seemingly otherworldly crafts landing in fields or deserts around the world, or even of them entering apparently hidden bases in the mountains or under the surface of the world’s seas and oceans? Might these altogether closer encounters with UFOs tell us more of their origin, as well as why they might be here in the first place…?
