  1. A close encounter of the first kind is when someone has a close-at-hand experience with a UFO, without any tangible physical effects. An example of a close encounter of the first kind is what happened on October 14, 1986, as recorded by Don Schmitt, who worked for the Center for UFO Studies. A man and wife were driving along the highway north of Bristol, Wisc., and saw flashing red and white lights. They assumed that a car accident had happened on the highway ahead, but were surprised to find that the real cause of the lights was a triangular-shaped object the size of a two-story house was hovering above the road.
