Would it be okay to mix in some green with some blue?[attachment=5636:Image_1.jpg]

In truth, I don't know if there is just one "UFO" look. It kinda is a non-universal experience so you can make it however you'd like. I personally really liked the way they "showed" it in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, but you can do whatever you'd like in terms of color/brightness/sound I'd say.
A better question to answer is how you want it to feel. To me Blue/Green can be kinda sickly/sad/somber perhaps; that's just me and my own taste/experience, what does you gut tell you a UFO encounter (in terms of the story) should feel like? and then what does your gut tell you it oughta look like?

CEOtTK is a great example, I also think that E.T is a good ref too and that Will Smith film when he punches the alien...ermm...forgot the name of it. Apocalyptic film....Day after Tomorrow??

And I think a bit of it has to do with creating something which is, ya know, alien, which the crazy lighting and strange angles can help relate.

Ya, there was this one movie which was quite interesting but forgot the name of it. I remember it was a group of guys and a girl in a truck, driving in the woods, when all of a sudden they spot a light in the middle of the field. One of the guys steps outside amazed by the elusive aura and gets abducted. Then there are a couple of scenes of him being experimented on. It was quite frightening!
Fire in the Sky.
The last 15 minutes of the movie are the creepiest and scariest crap I've ever seen.
