UFO enthusiasts heading to Wyoming for upcoming rendezvous

Posted: Updated:

DEVILS TOWER, Wyo. (AP) - Just like in the science-fiction movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," UFO enthusiasts are being drawn to a strange geological formation in Wyoming.
    
Devils Tower played a key role in the well-known UFO film that came out 40 years ago this year. The first Devils Tower UFO Rendezvous will be held at the site from Sept. 14-16.
    
The formation is actually the solidified core of an ancient volcano.
    
Experts on UFOs will speak at the convention.
    
Organizer Brian Olson tells KOTA-TV (http://bit.ly/2vKw5j4) that there's a fun side, too, with plans for a parade, live music and barbecue cook-off.
    
Devils Tower stands more than 800 feet (243 meters) tall and can be seen for miles.
