While NASA is spending millions of dollars going to Mars and doing dull stuff like digging down through Martian permafrost looking for signs of microscopic life, a guy in Denver is doing the heavy lifting of proving that some really interesting aliens are walking around right here on Earth.
A video that purportedly shows a living, breathing space alien will be shown to the news media Friday in Denver.
Jeff Peckman, who is pushing a ballot initiative to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission in Denver to prepare the city for close encounters of the alien kind, said the video is authentic and convinced him that aliens exist.
"As impressive as it is, it's still one tiny portion in the context of a vast amount of peripheral evidence," he said Wednesday. "It's really the final visual confirmation of what you already know to be true having seen all the other evidence."
When Peckman went before city officials this month to discuss his proposed ET initiative, he promised to show the video.
Peckman said the general public will have to wait to see it because it's being included in a documentary by Stan Romanek.
"No one will be allowed to film the segment with the extraterrestrial because there is an agreement in place limiting that kind of exposure during negotiations for the documentary," he said.
But people won't have to wait too long to see it for themselves.
"There is an open, public meeting in about a month in Colorado Springs," Peckman said. "We'll hope to do one in Denver at some point, and then in a few months, there will be the documentary that anybody can have, and it'll have the footage."
An instructor at the Colorado Film School in Denver scrutinized the video "very carefully" and determined it was authentic, Peckman said.
That's right; an "instructor at the Colorado Film School" checked it out "very carefully" and gave it a thumbs up. So I guess NASA can pretty much turn out the lights on that boring old hunk of metal on Mars. You don't have to go to Mars to find aliens. Turns out they're in Denver, instead.

If you look really, really closely at the 22 seconds that have been released of this reportedly three minute video you can see your first, real live alien. And for those of you out there who remain snarky cynics just remember that "an instructor at the Colorado Film School in Denver scrutinized the video "very carefully" and determined it was authentic." So shut up, you.
