If you are a big fan of aliens, you will likely love this post. You will find all images conveniently on just one page. You won’t have to spend your time surfing through many different websites to see various aliens. Besides sharing pictures, we have also included some fascinating and valuable information. After all, what good is it to have a bunch of photos with no descriptions in them?
Grey aliens are defined as alleged extraterrestrial beings. They are named for their dark grey skin color. Besides having the name “Grey aliens”, they also have a few other names. They have also been referred to as “Alien Greys”, “Greys”, “Grays”, “Roswell Greys” and “Zeta Reticulans”. Their existence has been promoted in a variety of ufological, paranormal and New Age communities.
In the United States, Grey aliens have been described in about half of all reported extraterrestrial encounters. Based on claims, they are described as small-bodied sexless beings. They have no hair on their entire body and face, an enlarged head (in proportion to their bodies), big black eyes and dark grey-colored skin. The origin of the idea of Grey aliens is commonly associated with the famous Betty and Barney Hill abduction claim in 1961. They were allegedly abducted by aliens in New Hampshire from September 19, 1961 through September 20, 1961. However, according to skeptics, there are precursors in science fiction and earlier paranormal claims. The Grey aliens also owe their fame to later depictions of the Roswell UFO incident that had took place back in 1947.

Little Green Men
Above is an artist’s depiction of “little green men” that was described in the novel called Martians, Go Home (a science fiction comic novel). The term “little green men” is the stereotypical portrayal of extraterrestrials as very small humanoid-like (something that has an appearance that resembles a human being) creatures. They have a green skin color and will sometimes have antennae located on their heads. The term has also been used to describe gremlins, which are mythical creatures that are known for causing issues in airplanes and mechanical devices. However, today, the little green men are more commonly associated with the Grey aliens that we previous mentioned.
What made the term “little grey men” such a popular usage in reference to aliens is the reports of flying saucers in the 1950s. In 1955, the Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter allegedly took place. Two Kentucky men claimed to have had close encounters with humanoid-looking aliens. They claimed that the aliens were metallic-silver and were only about 4 feet tall. However, many newspaper articles deviated from the witnesses’ accounts and used the term “little green men” in the story.
Before its more modern application to aliens, the term was commonly used to describe various supernatural beings that are found in old legends and folklore. Little green men was also used to describe beings (such as goblins) that were found in later fairy tales and children’s books.

Aliens From The Roswell UFO Incident
An Alien Named EBE
Above is a 1949 photo of a supposedly live alien that was pulled from the wreckage of Roswell. The alien was given the name EBE, which stood for “Extraterrestrial Biological Entity“. It became ill towards the end of 1951. A doctor was unable to save its life. EBE died in the middle of 1952.
The above image is an artist’s conception of a reptilian (next to an adult male). Reptilians are alleged reptilian humanoids. They are also called reptoids, reptiloids, saurians and draconians. These humanoid beings have played some important roles in science fiction, ufology and fantasy.
Reptilians have also played a role in conspiracy theories. A conspiracy theorist by the name of David Icke is the man who gets the credit for popularizing the idea of reptilians on Earth. Icke has claimed that shape-shifting reptilian aliens control the Earth. They supposedly have the ability to take human form and will even gain political power just for the purpose of manipulating societies all around the world. According to Icke, many of the world leaders are possessed by reptilians.
According to an alien abduction story in 1967, police officer Herbert Schirmer from Ashland, Nebraska reported having actual contact with reptilian creatures. Schirmer claimed to have actually been taken aboard a UFO by humanoid beings that had a slight reptilian appearance. He also claimed the beings wore a “winged serpent” that was located on the left side of their chests.
Some who claim to have been in contact with extraterrestrials (as well as UFOlogists) say they have seen Nordic aliens. Nordic aliens are humanoid extraterrestrials who bear the resemblance to Nordic-Scandinavians. They are commonly reported as being males in great physical shape.
Nordic aliens are often described as being very tall (approximately six to seven feet tall) and range from fair colored to tanned skin. Their eyes are blue, and their hair is long and blonde. They have been described as being “magical” beings that are good-natured. They are also said to have an interest in observing and communicating with the human race. According to one report, these bizarre beings may have no sense of smell because they seem to be unaffected by strong odors.
Their description was said to match many reports by self-described contactees during the 1950s. This is especially the case for contactees in Europe. Although these aliens are still occasionally reported, claims of Nordic aliens became reasonably less common in following decades. In the majority of the reports of alien encounters, it is the Grey alien being that has replaced the Nordic.

The Day The Earth Stood Still
The Day the Earth Stood Still is a 1951 American science fiction film from 20th Century Fox. The black-and-white film was based on a short 1940 science fiction story called “Farewell to the Master“.
In the film, a humanoid alien by the name of Klaatu comes to visit the Earth. But he did not come all alone. He was accompanied by a powerful eight-foot tall robot by the name of Gort (in above image). They claimed to deliver a very important message that will affect the entire human race.

Alien From The Science Fiction Horror Film Series “Aliens”
The Alien film franchise is a science fiction horror film series. It consisted of 4 installments with the focus on fictional character Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley (played by actress Sigourney Weaver) and her intense battles with an alien being (referred to as “the Alien“). Although the series started with Alien in 1979, it also led to 3 film sequels, various books, comics and even video game spin-offs.
Just recently (February 18, 2015), director Neil Blomkamp had revealed he was officially working on a fifth Alien film. Shortly after, Weaver had confirmed that she would be repeating her role again.
Aliens Based On Scientific Speculations
Life On Planets That Have Weaker Gravity Than Earth
Scientists believe that on a planet (or moon) with 1/2 the gravity of Earth’s, the aliens would likely be very tall and thin-looking. If they are intelligent beings, they would probably have two arms and legs just like human beings. The reason is because the body design is simple, logical and practical.
Life On Planets That Have Stronger Gravity Than Earth
According to scientists, life on a planet with strong gravity (2g or higher) would be significantly different than on a planet with weak gravity. It probably wouldn’t look identical to an elephant, but would likely look similar. It would be slow moving and have thick elephant-like legs. However, unlike an elephant, the alien would likely have a strong tail capable of supporting its entire weight. On a planet with the gravity of 5g, the being would likely be in a permanent squatting position.
