UFO Sighting Hierarchy

A close encounter of the FIRST kind is just a sighting.

For example, if one were to see an unidentified flying object in the night sky, he had a "close encounter of the first kind".

A close encounter of the SECOND kind is where evidence is left behind after a sighting.

If one were to see a ship land, then take off again, finding charred earth, broken grass and strange markings would indicate the individual had a "close encounter of the second kind".

A close encounter of the THIRD kind is where actual physical contact with an extra-terrestrial takes place.

If one were to see a ship land, only to have little grey-skinned guys with big eyes come out and drag him back to the ship, kicking and screaming, and then have a variety of alien devices jammed into various bodily orifices, one would have been said to have had a "close encounter of the third kind".

I hope this clears things up for you.

I read the book along time ago and it explains the different meanings of each type of encounter within the first couple pages.
