Join us as we follow Shaun Ryder of the Happy Mondays as he embarks on an extra-terrestrial adventure, taking him from the mountains of Chile to the fields and forests of England. Convinced from an early age that UFO’s exist after spotting one in the sky above his house in Salford, Shaun sets off on a quest to find out the truth.
Along the way he scans more than just the sky, speaking to experts and witnesses, academics and abductees, sceptics and believers in an attempt to get to the bottom of their stories and separate fact from fantasy.
Shaun is in Chile where he visits an Air Force Base that experienced one of the country’s most prominent UFO sightings. He talks with Chilean air force pilots who were there on the day, and to the head of CEFAA, Chile’s official government UFO investigation agency.
Next he travels up into the Andes to a UFO hotspot, a village where more than a third of residents claim to have seen a UFO. Shaun and Ufologist Miguel Jordon do a spot of sky watching, and then back in Santiago we investigate a mysterious case involving multiple figures seen hovering in the skies above the city.
Top ufologist Antonio Huneeus takes Shaun to see a massive alien-like geoglypth, the Atacama Giant, in Chile’s Atacama Desert; some believe it was built in homage to visitors from space.
Later around the campfire UFO witness Humberto Roja’s describes the moment he saw a fellow soldier abducted by aliens. We also hear the story of Ernesto de la Fuente, convinced that he was cured of cancer by Nordic looking aliens that live on an island in southern Chile.
Shaun’s final attempt at sky watching is a success when a photograph taken by the crew of the night sky reveals an unexplainable flying object.
Shaun Ryder meets British Ufologist Nick Pope who reveals a mysterious UFO sighting that occurred over an RAF base in Cosford, they travel to the National Archives in London to explore the case files.
Next he visits members of a spiritual movement who worship extra-terrestrials and attends a meeting at the UFO academy to hear discussion of some puzzling cases. In search of a more academic approach he speaks to Claudio Maccone, the Chair of SETI, a research institute that use cutting edge technology in an attempt to communicate with life in other galaxies.
Finally Shaun meets a man from Sutton Coldfield who says he was abducted by aliens in his back garden, and chats with a Sociologist and a retired clinical Psychologist about the psychological effect of such encounters.
Shaun Ryder is joined by America’s most famous UFO abductee, Travis Walton. Together they journey across England to meet others who have experienced encounters with the extra-terrestrial.
They meet a family from Cumbria who witnessed a UFO together and shared a feeling of love for the glowing light in the sky. Then they head to Lancashire to speak to retired policeman Alan Godfrey who worked on the mysterious unsolved case of Zigmund Adamski. Was his death the result of an alien abduction? Godfrey risked his career to suggest maybe it was.
Finally they visit Rendelsham Forest, the sight of the UK’s most famous and intriguing UFO case.
