An energy being is an exotic form of alien appearance in Close Encounters. They are supernormal beings whose appearance projects the idea that they are made up of pure energy, and not the kind of matter that humans are familiar with. In ufology, they may present themselves as orbs. In astrology, as spirits. In mythology or science fiction they may be manipulating energy, conveyed as flames, electrical bolts, or water.
