If you've been a player of Elite Dangerous for a while, you'll know that there's always been a hunt for alien life. Seems someone found it.
A user playing on Xbox One discovered the encounter and recorded it to the console's DVR.
It's unclear if this is the well-known Thargoids or something else entirely. The encounter seemed peaceful as the pilot's ship was scanned without more than a delay in the computer coming back online. Exciting!
