A businessman has sat down to talk about the horrifying moment he came face-to-face with a UFO.

Steve Allen, the star of Netflix's docuseries, Encounter, detailed the moment the large UFO flew over his head.

Allen was a leading witness to one of the largest mass UFO sightings in American history.

In 2008, the businessman was enjoying a campfire with his friends in Stevenville, Texas when they spotted something otherworldly in the night sky.

"All of a sudden, I see some real bright high-intensity lights off to the east headed our way at a high velocity of speed," he explained.

"The lights were so bright it was unlike anything I'd ever seen, it was almost blinding to look at them.

"What amazed me is there was no wind noise, no engine noise it was silence. When it came past us I developed the most peaceful, easy feeling I think I've ever had in my life. It was almost like a religious experience like I was at one with whatever it was."
