So most people have heard the term “Close Encounter” which can be interpreted any number of ways, including a ‘brush with death,’ however if you are a UFO enthusiast it means UFOs and EBEs or Extraterrestrial Biological Entities. The scale of the world uses was created by Alan Hynek’s and goes like this:
Nocturnal Lights = You saw something while the sky was dark.
Daylight Disks = You saw something, not necessarily disks, while the sky was light.
Radar-Visual = radar is often used to confirm a witness siding however occasionally activity can only be seen on radar.
Close Encounters of the First Kind = Sighting within 500 feet. Visual clarity of object.
Close Encounters of the Second Kind = UFO event that includes physical traces or a physical effect, such as landing marks, damaged vegetation, battery drainage, radio interference and even paralysis.
Close Encounters of the Third Kind = UFO encounters that include among others Robots, Humanoids and EBE (Extraterrestrial Biological Entity). Bloecher subcategories to this category include:
A (Aboard): EBE observed in a craft
B (Both): EBE observed inside and outside of craft
C (Close): EBE observed near the craft but not seen entering or exiting
D (Direct): EBE witnessed without craft however UFO reported in area at corresponding time
E (Excluded): EBE witnessed without craft and no UFOs reported
F (Frequence): No EBE or UFO craft our witnessed however subject experiences “Intelligent Communication”
