The only aliens that most of us have encountered are the fictional varietythe extraterrestrial beings depicted in film and television. While many have seen the 1979 Ridley Scott film, “Alien,” and all its subsequent sequels, others have experienced pop culture’s representation of aliens through TV series, such as the goofy television show “Alf.” Although the majority of people haven’t witnessed aliens first-hand, a number of people still believe in them.

The fist big wave of alien interest came in 1947 when it was believed that aliens crashed in Roswell, N.M. Those who believe in aliens contend that the United States government recovered an alien craft and its occupants and has since been secretly meeting with (and learning from) them in a place that is known as Area 51. Extraterrestrial devotees believe that there is a government (and media) conspiracy to cover up alien activities, making it difficult, if not impossible to prove that real aliens exist.

Aliens and Crop Circles

Crop circles are intricate and complex geometric patterns that appear in fields, usually in wheat fields, and typically are made during the nightseemingly out of nowhere. These patterns have appeared most frequently in the United Kingdom.

While some alien enthusiasts believe that the designs are intricate messages from aliens, most people believe that most, if not all of them, are the work of clever pranksters. The two most famous, David Chorley and Doug Bower, have admitted to crafting approximately 250 circles in their lifetime.
