The fictional story in the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" is no longer fiction. There is a real-life get-together of UFO believers and it's happening in Wyoming, just like in the movie.

KOTA-TV reported on this first ever Devil's Tower UFO Rendezvous set to begin September 14.

This will probably not come as a shock to you that this group is really excited about the re-release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind into theaters remastered in 4K.

All kidding aside, there will be a number of activities during this 4 day festival. The keynote speaker is Jan Harzan. Jan is on the Board of Directors for MUFON (UFO people) and is a guy. To me, that's the most surprising part of this story.
