The researchers of the Federal communications Commission arrive in the valley of San Fernando to identify the source of the interference, the interfering radio. They find out that the source appeared after the collapse of nearby UFO, and get eyewitness accounts of humanoid creature in a suit similar to the suit of the diver. They decide that this creature or something in his costume and is the source of the interference.

The investigation reveals that the creature is actually an alien from outer space, invisible without a spacesuit. Communicators are attracted to the military and scientists and begin the hunt for the alien.

The action is in Los Angeles. The invisible alien is trapped inside the famous Griffith Park Observatory. The girl, an assistant of one of the scientists discovers that the alien can be seen in the light of a UV lamp. He tries to convey the message, tapping the code, but nobody can understand him. Reserves of breathing gas to the alien's end, and he is caught on the upper platform of the telescope, where he finally suffocates and drops dead. His body after death becomes visible and soon evaporates without a trace.

Phenomena in artwork: UFO

UFO in the film is a ship in distress of a stranger. Near not show it, from afar he resembles a bright fireball green. His movement is tracked with the help of American air defense system. The speed of the ship during the observation falls from three thousand miles per hour to several hundred, after which he disappears from the radar screens.

The principle of operation of the ship remains unclear, but one scholar suggests that it is based on the use of magnetic fields. Perhaps the ship was near Earth, and our planet's magnetic field disrupted it systems.

Phenomena in artwork: The Alien

An alien is a creature of the humanoid type, with growth slightly above average height people. It is invisible in the Earth's atmosphere, scientists attribute this to the fact that the body of the alien is based on a silicon organics, unlike ours, based on carbon. In the light of a UV lamp it is visible, and after death becomes visible to the naked eye (it is not clear, because it is the organic structure is unlikely to change as a result of death).

The stranger breathes a mixture of gases based on methane, which indirectly confirms the correctness of the guesses about the silicon organic (at least, so say the scientists in the film). His vocal cords are not designed for sound extraction in the earth's atmosphere, his speech is too high frequency and not audible by the human ear (the dog hears it).

The stranger was dressed in a suit made of extremely durable material, which is in the structure which could not distinguish individual fibers (apparently, a polymeric material). It is the spacesuit was a source of interference that interfered with the broadcast of terrestrial radio signals. The authors of the film are confusing radiation with radio waves, and to understand what actually emits the suit, to the end does not work. One thing is clear: the helmet breathing device does not emit anything and is safe for humans, unlike the rest of the costume (the radiation of which "people could not migrate", but all the actors are in close proximity without any protection).

An alien is trying to convey information to people by using code similar to Morse code, first tapping it with the scissors on the table, and then transmitting on the radio. The meaning of the message remains unknown.

In the plot, an alien kills a few people, but later it turns out that they provoked him to such actions. The film focuses on the fact that the alien is a victim of circumstance and simply trying to survive after the disaster.

All things alien eventually evaporate without a trace, as well as his body after death. The reason for this phenomenon in the film is not explained.
