Chris Carter’s famous X-Files slogan,“The truth is out there,” will be put to the test when a team of pioneering investigators pushes the limits to find the truth behind unexplained UFO sightings, using modern technology for data collection and analysis.
According to the National Geographic Channel (NGC), these real-life “Scullys and Mulders” are not looking for more stories on extraterrestrial activity — they want answers. On NGC’s new eight-part series “Chasing UFOs,” an investigative team—comprised of one believer, one skeptic and one independent thinker—examine a well-documented UFO sighting (Roswell, N.M.), meet with an alleged alien abduction survivor in Colorado and even track glowing orbs near NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
A Topcon IS-3 imaging station is used to gather site data for analytic research in three episodes – the series premiere “Texas is for sightings,” and episodes “UFO landing zone,” and “Abducted in Arizona.” In Texas, the experts witness lights in the skies that leave them with new questions. In “UFO Landing Zone”, the three thrill-seekers explore the famed crash site in Roswell, where they challenge a possible military cover-up and in “Abducted in Arizona”, the team collects video footage of unusual-shaped lights over Arizona.
