From a media release:
One million UFO sightings are reported each year, and while most can be debunked, 5% of these cases cannot be explained. Airing in back-to-back weekly timeslots on Fridays at 11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. ET/8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. PT, beginning Feb. 6, Discoveryâ€™s popular Original Series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS returns for a mesmerizing second season, profiling the most intriguing and convincing of these stories.
