Theme: There are millions and millions of miles of outer space and it’s interesting to guess what kinds of life forms might exist.

When the thing from outer space visits Earth, it is mistaken for a trick-or-treater and then a robot.

What would it be like to meet beings from another planet? LeVar sends a special invitation to all the aliens who might be watching — to visit Earth, and shows them some of Earth’s wonders. Visit Puerto Rico to learn about Earth's biggest radio receiver/telescope where scientists listen to outer space, and California to see an observatory where astronomers use a gigantic telescope to scan the skies.
