Go to the limits of human experience… and beyond. From the fringes of the galaxy to our own backyards, the UFO FILES searches for evidence of life beyond our world. Tracing the long, convoluted history of UFO encounters and research, this unique series opens new windows into the controversial field.
Starting on Christmas night, 1980, Air Force personnel at a NATO installation in Britain reported a series of strange sightings and encounters. Investigating a glowing object in the woods, they came upon a triangular metal craft which shot above the treetops after one serviceman touched it.
Two nights later, the Deputy Base Commander and a team investigating the alleged site saw lights over a field beyond the woods and a red object. It sped off, beaming lights over the bases. Though some documents relating to the incident have been released under the Freedom of Information Act, the encounters remain shrouded in secrecy and controversy.
