Hi, I'm new here and was curious about something I saw on TV a few years ago...
I can't remember exactly when I saw it, but I was kid and it had to have been in the early 90s sometime (I'm 23 now) and was on the show that used
to come on FOX called "Sightings". Most of you probably remember it - it was a news-magazine type show that featured "sightings"
(footage,interviews, etc) of the paranormal, mostly concerning UFOs. Specifically, a segment from one of the later episodes, I believe, is one that I
have never forgotten and has been vividly etched in my mind ever since.
The segment dealt with a video tape that had been sent to the show anonymously that featured a home video of a birthday party or get together or
cookout or something along those lines being held next to a house that looked to be on a camp ground surrounded by a sparse forest. Everyone in the
video is just enjoying themselves, having a good time, goofing off, etc, when someone spots a light coming from the nearby forest. The camera pans and
zooms into the forest and through the brush the side of a landed spacecraft can clearly be seen, with what appears to be three or four ACTUAL ALIENS
descending from the craft. Like I said, I've never been able to forget that distinct image.
Soon after, the video stops and then picks up again a few minutes later inside the house where everyone is completely frantic and freaking out. I
remember a couple of guys getting shotguns, locking the doors, and whoever else was in the video being completely scared out of their minds.
Apparently, from what can been distinguished from the video, is that the aliens somehow come into the house. I think a shot is fired while the video
image is shaking all over the place from the guy holding the camera running around... and again, everyone in the video is scared sh-tless. The whole
time there was a voice over from the host of the show explaining what we were watching, then they suddenly freeze frame an image... and plain as day
is a grey alien with a large head and those big black eyes. I also remember there being extremely quick footage during this sequence of one or two of
the aliens in motion, as in walking around among the crazed room.
When it was over, I remember how amazed I was at what I just saw because it appeared to me that for the first time actual aliens had been caught on
tape and not only were there images, but footage of living, walking aliens - something that, as a kid, convinced me of its authenticity... and it
absolutely freaked me out. In fact, I remember covering my eyes for half of the segment. For some reason it scared me that bad and that's why I still
remember it to a certain degree today.
However, since its broadcast I have never heard another thing about that tape. Absolutely nothing. Recently, I did a quick and somewhat unextensive
search on the 'net of anything having to do with that tape and again came up with nothing. Does anyone else remember this particular episode of
Sightings or know anything about this tape? I'm extremely curious. Chances are, it probably ended up just being a hoax or something, so who knows. If
anyone can shed any light on this please share on the board or just e-mail me at email@example.com. Thanks!
