People dressed in green costumes imitating extra-terrestrials talk with journalists while in the view of Bugarach, the highest point of the Corbieres massif, in southwestern France. Surrounded in legend for centuries, Bugarach has become a focal point for many Apocalypse believers as rumors have circulated that its mountain contains doors into other worlds, or that extraterrestrials will return here on Judgment day to take refuge at their base.
