In the film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, how did the government know to build the landing complex at Devils Tower?

Asked by elbanditoroso (14558 points ) January 7th, 2014

If there hadn’t been contact previously, how did the government know the following:

1) the five tone musical passage (and that it was a means if communication)

2) the hand movements and that they would be non-threatening

3) to build the landing area near Devils Tower?

Or is the assumption that there were earlier (first and second kind) communications, years previously, that would have negotiated/instructed the government on where to build?

After all, UFO landing sites take a while to build.
