(Newser) – A Denver man claims to have film of an alien peering through a window, and plans to show it to the media today, the Denver Post reports. The closely encountered alien is said to be 4 feet tall and appears "innocent, benevolent, youthful" and less "wrinkly" than ET in the movie, he said. The man is pushing to convince Denver officials to appoint an extraterrestrial affairs commissioner to deal with visitors from outer space.

The video shows "footage of the extraterrestrial over the course of a minute," he said. "I think it will engage people in a thoughtful way to decide if it's proof enough—or if they need further documentation and more evidence."
