Weird weather patterns, flight schedules, and extraordinary imagination - ultimately, of the thousands of "UFO sightings" that are reported each year around the globe, most can be explained and attributed to normal, Earthly phenomena. But those cases that can't be solved - even decades later -- puzzle police investigators, government officials, researchers, and even medical communities. Premiering on Discovery, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS explores the most intriguing and convincing UFO stories on the planet. An original Canadian production from Toronto's Newroad Media, the 13-part series examines two stories in each episode, combining dramatic recreations, CGI, and dynamic expert interviews, to illuminate the most mystifying sightings from around the world - from Alberta to Australia, and from Texas to Tehran!

Part 1: WATER PROOF: SEPTEMBER 30, 1980 - An Australian rancher in Rosedale, Victoria is wakened by the sound of frightened animals in the early morning hours. He immediately thinks it is cattle rustlers, so rushes out to the field where his animals are. That's when he sees an object hovering above a large water tank. He hears a loud, piercing sound as a black tube-like object comes out of the ship. When the object speeds away, the farmhand discovers that the 10,000-gallon water tank is empty. Part 2: FRENCH CONNECTION: OCTOBER 21, 1982 - A biologist is working in his garden in the town of Nancy, France during the daylight hours. He spots a small saucer-shaped craft in the distance, which he initially assumes is a plane. As it descends, he runs for shelter as it heads straight for his garden and hovers about a metre off the ground. He observes the craft for 20 minutes. When it leaves, he discovers that all of his amaranth plants have wilted as if affected by an electromagnetic field.

Part 1: NORTHERN LIGHTS: DECEMBER 11, 1996: Two cousins, Billy and John Smith, are driving in separate cars along the Klondike Highway when they encounter a massive "mothership" three times the size of a football stadium. Their description matches at least 30 other witnesses who see the same object in the sky that night around Fox Lake and the village of Pelly Crossing. It is one of the most extensively documented and researched UFO sightings in Northern Canada. Part 2: FADED GIANT: MARCH 24, 1967: Deputy Commander Robert Salas receives an mergency call from guards at the Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana who have spotted an unidentified object overhead. In the 1960's, the base is the largest nuclear weapons complex in the world and is home to an arsenal of Minuteman Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles. As the object passes over the base, "all hell breaks loose" when the ten minuteman missiles suddenly go off line.
