Close Encounter (known as Paranormal Occurrence for the November 10, 2018 instance) is a recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live. In each instance, three people (Miss Rafferty, one played by Cecily Strong, and the episode's host) have been abducted by aliens and are being interviewed by two scientists (Aidy Bryant with Bobby Moynihan in the first three installments, Mikey Day after).

The latest sketch, which premiered on May 21, 2022, was titled "Final Encounter", as it shows character Colleen Rafferty board an alien spaceship to leave earth permanently, as a reference and goodbye to Kate McKinnon, the character's actress who left the show following that episode, after 10 years in the cast.
