It's late one summer evening at your suburban backyard bar-b-que. You and 14 of your closest friends are standing around eating burgers and cole slaw. Suddenly a football field-sized triangular-shaped object silently moves toward a nearby field, hovers at about 200 feet, then gently touches ground.
Fifteen minutes later this hulking gray metallic object simply lifts off of the ground again and quickly disappears into the night sky. You move swifly to a computer and sign on to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) reporting center and complete a witness report.
A UFO "swat team" moves in the next day - set in motion from a nationally organized team led by MUFON International Director James Carrion. While the suburban bar-b-que story is fiction, this new team is very real.
MUFON's Star Team Impact Project (SIP) can be deployed anywhere in the U.S. to be on the scene of a close encounter of the second kind (a UFO landing) within 24 hours of a report.
