Watch Ancient Aliens


Ancient Aliens is a popular documentary style television show produced by Kevin Burns. The pilot first aired on The History Channel in spring 2009, and the series began regularly airing in 2010. The premise or the show is that archeological artifacts, historical texts and folklore all prove that aliens have been in contact with humans for centuries. Though many scientific minds dispute the credibility of the show, it was picked up for a fourth season in 2011 and has millions of dedicated viewers. The pilot show was based on theories by Erich Von Daniken who believes early aliens visited humans and taught them the basics of math and engineering. This knowledge contributed to them building such structures as the heads of Easter Island and the pyramids.

One of the most recent and controversial episodes of Ancient Aliens suggests that Bigfoot, a popular legend of an apelike man that wanders and hides in the forest was actually an alien species that visited our planet. The fourth season explores many theories that include aliens forcing dinosaur extinction so the human race could be dominant, time travel in The Bible, alien contact with NASA, and the Mayan doomsday prophecy and its connection to aliens. Each episode tends to draw mockery and criticism from the scientific community. However the show continues to increase in popularity.

Anyone interested in watching the series in its entirety can see previously aired episodes on The History Channel. They air Friday nights at 10/11 PM. Seasons one through four can also be purchased directly from The History Channel's online store.

Ancient Aliens Full Episode Guide

  • In 2017, it was revealed that the Department of Defense recently spent millions investigating reports of UFOs. This is the latest disclosure about a series of secret government UFO projects dating back decades, but many of their findings have never been released to the public. Could the truth about an extraterrestrial presence on Earth be part of a UFO Conspiracy?

  • The ancient site of Gobekli Tepe challenges everything modern archaeologists believe about mankind's past. The megalithic stone complex was built over 12,000 years ago, which dates it to 6,500 years before Stonehenge, and 5,000 years before the first known civilization was said to have emerged in Mesopotamia. Mainstream archaeologists believe that humans were roaming the Earth as simple hunter-gatherers at this time, but if so, how could they have built such incredible structures? Might they have had help from a more advanced--perhaps extraterrestrial--civilization? According to Ancient Astronaut Theorists, the site serves as the smoking gun for a lost civilization--one whose survivors may have built the site to preserve important information about otherworldly visitors. Does the site offers clues about our extraterrestrial past that the ancients felt compelled to preserve for future generations?

  • Hundreds of strange disks are discovered in a cave in China that appear to tell the story of an ancient extraterrestrial crash on Earth. Shortly after the disclosure of these artifacts, the disks are confiscated by the Chinese government and dismissed as a hoax. But are they? Ancient traditions from around the world speak of mysterious disk-shaped artifacts that held tremendous power. The Babylonians claimed to have a disk that stood in for their most powerful deity. The Incan leader Pachacuti attributed his rise to a divine disk that fell from the sky. And treasure hunters have been searching for centuries for the acclaimed "Golden Sun Disk" that was hidden from the Conquistadors when they sacked Peru. Ancient Astronaut theorists propose that these disks were more than just sacred objects, and represent some sort of extraterrestrial technology.

  • In Honshu, Japan, stands one of the country's oldest and holiest Shinto shrines, the Ishi-no-Hoden. Carved from a single rock, it appears to hover over a pool of water and depicts a sky ship of stone that the ancient people witnessed descending from the heavens. This is just one of numerous megalithic structures found throughout Japan commemorating a time when the gods, or perhaps, extraterrestrial beings, descended to Earth.

  • Across the globe, over 1.5 billion people believe in reincarnation, the belief that a soul can be reborn into a different body after death.

  • India's Sanskrit texts are filled with incredible stories about advanced technology in the ancient world.

  • Researchers ask if Cloud computing represents the rediscovery of an ancient repository of knowledge known as the Akashic Record; neuroscientist Dr. Dario Nardi measures the brainwaves of Dr. Deepak Chopra as he enters a state of deep meditation.

  • A roll of film surfaces containing pictures of a memo informing president-elect Dwight Eisenhower about the existence of a top-secret group of scientists, government officials and military personnel who investigate reports of UFOs.

  • The ancient Aztec site of Teotihuacan in central Mexico is explored as the possible remnants of a highly advanced, perhaps extraterrestrial, civilization.

  • Theorists speculate about metal artifacts that could provide physical evidence of extraterrestrials visiting Earth in the distant past; in Jacksonville, Fla. a strange metallic sphere falls from the sky; an ancient aluminum wedge baffles historians.

  • Starting in 1947, a series of unexplained events and sightings prompts U.S. government officials to become alien hunters; theorists offer evidence that similar endeavors were made thousands of years ago.
