Second Sighting is a studio album by American hard rock band Frehley's Comet. This is the second and last full-length album released under the band name Frehley's Comet and the third solo release from Ace overall.

Second Sighting was recorded with new drummer Jamie Oldaker, who had previously worked with Bob Seger and Eric Clapton. He replaced Billy Ward who was in the videos and part of the tour for the previous album replacing Anton Fig, who would return for 1989's Trouble Walkin'. This makes Second Sighting the only Frehley solo album or project (excluding compilations) to not feature Fig.

"Dancin' With Danger" is a cover version of a song recorded by the Canadian band Streetheart which featured future Loverboy members Paul Dean and Matt Frenette. Although the songwriting credits list Frehley and Dana Strum, the music and lyrics are very similar to the original version. Sequencer programming was done by Angel keyboardist and writer Gordon G.G. Gebert.

"Insane" and "It's Over Now" were released as singles with corresponding music videos. Both singles failed to chart.

UK-based company Rock Candy Records reissued this album on CD in 2014.
