In UFOlogy, a close encounter is an event in which a person witnesses an unidentified flying object. This terminology and the system of classification behind it was started by astronomer and UFO researcher J. Allen Hynek,

He introduced the first three kinds of encounters.

First Kind:

A sighting of one or more unidentified flying objects:

Flying saucers
Odd lights
Aerial objects that are not attributable to known human technology

Oh. WOW!!! This is fantastic, Jeff....you brought out an incredible amount of drama with the HDR application! Sci-fi and I go way back to my childhood so this is right up my alley. Dare I hope that at some point there will be second and third kinds?
