  UFO
The idea that UFOs are in fact alien spacecraft is discounted by most scientists, because many such sightings have been explained in terms of known natural phenomena or human activity, and there is a lack of evidence corroborating eyewitness accounts which purport otherwise.
The field of UFOs should not necessarily be confused or intermingled with "the paranormal," although it often is. The UFO phenomenon need not have a paranormal explanation, though those who believe in UFOs may also have a fascination with the paranormal.
UFOs are sometimes claimed to be part of an elaborate UFO conspiracy theory in which the government is said to be intentionally covering up the existence of aliens.

UFO confused broadcasters in both Britain and the United States who could not decide if it was a program for adults, or for children (the fact Anderson was primarily associated with children's programming did not help matters).

The premise of UFO, which ran for a single season of 26 episodes in 1970, was like a more serious version of Anderson's Captain Scarlet (1967): in the near future of 1980, a high-tech secret organization, SHADO, waged covert war against mysterious alien attackers.
