What It Is: The world’s largest UFO conference hosts a full week of panel discussions, lectures, and presentations—and attracts all kinds (possibly even the third kind). Perhaps the best events are the nightly sky watches, where hopeful eyes are cast upward toward the expansive and mysterious darkness.

Who Goes: Extraterrestrial experts from around the globe—including Sci Fi Investigates host Richard Dolan and former British defense minister Nick Pope—bump elbows (and night-vision goggles and tinfoil hats) with hundreds of UFO believers.
