Watch Fire in the Sky
Fire in the sky is a movie that was made in 1993. This movie depicts a recreation from an alien encounters that happened back in 1975. The alien encounter took place in a small town called Snowflake, which is in Nevada. The movie starts out with a crew of hard working lumber men chopping down trees, which was their job. When nightfall comes one November night the men are seen packing up and heading home. On the way home the men see an object with bright lights in the sky, which at that moment Travis Walton, played by D.B. Sweeney gets out the truck. When he gets out of the truck he is soon abducted by an alien spacecraft.
When the men got back to civilization, they reported what happened to their co-worker to the police. In the 1970's, and in Nevada, nobody believed in aliens or in flying saucers, hence, nobody believes the men. The crew had to prove to the police, the town, and Travis's family that didn't murder Travis Walton. It was hard for some of the men to talk about the incident because they couldn't believe what they had witnessed. Before this encounter, they too didn't believe in aliens and unidentified flying objects.
It will be a crazy five days for the men which all must take a lie detector test to prove their innocence. When Travis did finally turn up, he and the crew had some explaining to do. Travis told stories of what the aliens looked like, what they did to him, and the experiences and fright he endured. Newspapers, tabloids, and news stations wanted to make them the laughing stock. Once the truth was told to the public and they were cleared of any and all charges, the loggers basically fell apart, losing life-long friendships, some got divorced, and some had to move away just to find stable employment. Until today, they won't publicly speak about that day.
