Ring cameras capture everything from heartwarming reunions to suspicious visitors, but now the company hopes the system can prove the existence of aliens.
The Amazon-owned company is offering a $1 million grand prize to a U.S. citizen who provides “unaltered scientific evidence of a true alien life form.”
Deadline for entries is November 3rd at 11:59 p.m. ET. Submissions will be analyzed by a “space and extraterrestrial expert.”
The competition comes at a time when the internet has been flooded with videos purporting to show extraterrestrial activity – but most of the sightings were of meteors falling from the sky.
Ring is offering a $1 million grand prize to a U.S. citizen who provides “unaltered scientific evidence of a true alien life form.”
“For nearly 100 years, scientists, experts and average homeowners have shared stories and video clips about alien sightings,” Ring said in the announcement.
“With new sightings and further evidence that life forms may exist outside Earth’s atmosphere, there is a possibility that extraterrestrial activity could be happening right on your doorstep.”
“Customers around the world capture life’s unexpected and beautiful moments with their Ring video doorbells and cameras. “Now you could be rewarded for catching an otherworldly sighting.”
Contest is open only to legal U.S. residents 18 years of age or older.
There are two ways to participate. The first is to submit “scientific evidence recorded with a Ring device documenting an alien.”
The second option is to submit a video of up to one minute that features “someone or something alien-related.”
A green fireball racing through the sky in Louisiana in July was caught on a Ring camera – and it sparked UFO panic among locals who believe it may have been a sign from aliens
“An entry using OPTION TWO may depict aliens in an unrealistic manner and may use artificial devices such as costumes or accessories, artificial vehicles, makeup, props, computer graphics, digital effects and/or other artificial means,” said Ring.
Option Two submissions will be judged on creativity, visual appeal and humor.
If evidence of extraterrestrial activity is provided, that person will receive the grand prize for it a pension of $50,000 per year for 20 years.
An incident captured on a Ring camera in July sparked fears of an alien invasion.
Footage of the doorbell taken as a bright emerald ball shot across the horizon at 4:30 a.m. on July 14 in Gretna, just across the Mississippi River from New Orleans.
A 17-second clip from the home security device begins with a view of a dark, sleepy suburban street with no signs of movement.
Suddenly, a Great Gatsby-style green light appears from the distance, appearing to move closer to the camera over a few seconds behind a house.
It lights up the entire sky a brilliant white before disappearing into the night.
AccuWeather shared the clip on Twitter and described the sighting as a “meteor,” although many people are convinced it was an extraterrestrial sighting.
Others reposted the videos on social media, speculating about possible alien life.
“This is not a meteor, this is an alien ship invading our space and time,” one person said of the doorbell footage.
“UFO must have stopped to get a poboy,” another person joked, referring to a New Orleans meat and French bread sandwich originally from Louisiana.
