In the Sonoran Desert, French scientist Claude Lacombe, his American interpreter, cartographer David Laughlin, and other researchers discover a group of Grumman TBM Avengers that have materialised overnight. The airplanes are identified as Flight 19, a training flight that went missing shortly after World War II in the Bermuda Triangle. The planes are in perfect condition, but without any occupants. An elderly witness, covered in sunburn, nearby claims “the sun came out at night, and sang to him”. The researchers are similarly baffled to find the SS Cotopaxi, a ship that had also previously disappeared in the Triangle, in the middle of the Gobi Desert, intact and completely empty. At the Indianapolis Air Route Traffic Control Center, air traffic controllers watch two airline flights narrowly avoid a mid-air collision with an unidentified flying object (UFO). When asked, neither crew expresses their wish to sign a UFO report.

In Muncie, Indiana, three-year-old Barry Guiler wakes to find his toys operating on their own. He starts to follow something outside, forcing his mother, Jillian, to chase after him. Large-scale power outages begin rolling through the area, forcing electrician Roy Neary to investigate. While he gets his bearings Roy experiences a close encounter with a UFO, and when it flies over his truck it lightly burns the side of his face with its lights. The UFO takes off with three others in the sky, as Roy and three police cars give chase. The spacecraft fly off into the night sky but the metaphysical experience leaves Roy mesmerized. He becomes fascinated by UFOs to the dismay of his wife, Ronnie, and obsesses over subliminal images of a mountain-like shape, often making models of it. Jillian meanwhile also becomes obsessed, sketching the unique mountain image. Soon after, she is terrorized in her home by a UFO which descends from the clouds. She fights off violent attempts by the UFO and unseen beings (who start to activate some of the house’s electric objects) to enter the home, but in the chaos Barry (who reacts joyfully to the intrusion) is abducted.
