Dan Aykroyd, the Canadian comic master behind Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live, and The Blues Brothers, is a UFOlogist. Now that Aykroyd is essentially retired from the comedy game, he spends his time researching paranormal activity, alien abductions, and UFOs from his haunted farmhouse in Canada.
Aykroyd has no qualms being open about his belief in the obscure and occult – he talks about it freely. Some even refer to him as a master of the subject.
So, what does it take to be a paranormal master? According to Aykroyd: a lifetime of commitment to the truth, and a family that believes in uncovering the mysteries of the universe.
His Family Farmhouse Has A Spiritual History
Aykroyd isn’t some Johnny-come-lately to the paranormal investigation game. The Aykroyds have been searching for the truth about ghosts for a while. Their history dates back to the comedian’s great-grandfather, who was a spiritualist and dentist.
Aykroyd still lives in the family farmhouse that has been host to seances and spiritualist get-togethers for decades. Aykroyd says the house has “a history of spiritual activity that would blow your mind.” Despite living in the spooky farmhouse, he’s yet to have direct experience with an apparition as an adult.
He Claims The Ghost Of A Famous Musician Liked To Cuddle In Bed
One of the many houses owned by Aykroyd is a Los Angeles bungalow, where notable musicians like Mama Cass (The Mamas and the Papas) and Ringo Starr lived in the ’60s and ’70s. When Aykroyd lived in the home, he claimed a ghost – which he believes to be the spirit of Mama Cass – was haunting the place because someone would turn on his StairMaster and mess with the family jewelry.
But perhaps the biggest revelation Aykroyd made about the ghost:
It once even crawled into bed with me. I rolled over and just nuzzled up to whatever it was and went back to sleep… I’m sure it’s Mama Cass because you get the feeling it’s a big ghost.
He Says He Has Seen Four UFOs
In a 2015 interview with Huffington Post, Aykroyd tried to play it cool about the fact he’s witnessed a series of phenomena that would drive ordinary people crazy. When asked about his experiences with extraterrestrials, he said he’s seen four UFOs, though he’s not sure if they were alien or human:
I can’t say that they are alien craft and neither can the Air Force. The Air Force has been very interested in this. They don’t deny the existence of these hyper-dynamic, super aerodynamic craft.
Two of the crafts, he claims, were seen one night in Martha’s Vineyard. He said they were “flying side by side. They were at about 100,000 feet up, and they were going fast.”
He Purchased UFO Footage From A Tarmac Worker At O’Hare Airport
On November 7, 2006, an employee at O’Hare International Airport allegedly saw a large disc floating in the middle of their airspace and recorded footage of the event. The footage never turned up, but Aykroyd supposedly has it. He claimed to have purchased the footage from a tarmac worker.
After announcing he had the footage, Aykroyd alleged he would be releasing a DVD with the never-before-seen footage and photographs. Some of it made it into his documentary, Dan Aykroyd Unplugged On UFOs.
He Believes Aliens Walk Among Us
Many people believe aliens are flying through our skies at night, but Aykroyd believes extraterrestrials are already here and living among us. In 2010, he appeared on Larry King Live and made the claim we’re living in a They Live scenario, albeit without the cool sunglasses.
He explained to King that while aliens are living as our friends and neighbors, they haven’t shown themselves because “they don’t want anything to do with us.”
Ghosts Visited Aykroyd As A Child
While Aykroyd admits he’s had somewhat bad luck with seeing full-body apparitions as an adult, as a child he was apparently a ghost magnet. He claimed that when he was a kid, there was a time when his mother, a skeptic, actually saw the ghosts of his great-grandparents watching him sleep.
My mother speaks about a time when she was nursing me, and an old couple came to the end of the bed. The image faded away. She pulled out an album and saw that it was my great-grandfather Sam and Jenny, his wife, coming to approve the new child.
He Has A Documentary Called ‘Dan Aykroyd Unplugged On UFOs’
In 2006, Graviton Productions released the documentary Dan Aykroyd Unplugged On UFOs. The film follows Aykroyd as he talks with author and fellow UFOlogist David Sereda about the potential existence of alien life.
The documentary also features interviews and footage from the likes of astronaut Gordon Cooper, NASA engineer John F. Schuessler, and President Ronald Reagan.
He Thinks There Should Be More Science In Parapsychology
As much as Aykroyd loves the fantastical elements that go along with hunting ghosts and UFOlogy, he also believes there should be more legitimate science applied to parapsychology. He thinks there would be major discoveries if physicists began analyzing ghosts.
He explained to the Daily Beast, “Are oxygen and nitrogen and hydrogen molecules coalescing to produce these visions in front of people? I’d love it if some research were done on materialization.”
As an example, he discussed mediums who were able to produce fully formed limbs from their mouths. He thinks it would “be nice to get some DNA and see if it’s the DNA of the person exuding this mass of ectoplasm or the DNA of another being.”
He Thinks The Government Knows About UFOs
Aykroyd believes the government is aware of extraterrestrial life, and he also thinks they are keeping it a secret for a reason. When talking to the Huffington Post, Aykroyd said, “The Air Force cannot just come out and admit that there are extraterrestrial beings far in advance of our culture that have built these machines.”
Furthermore, according to Aykroyd, the government can’t openly say there are “many species coming and going” to Earth every day without people losing faith in the structure of the government and causing a “complete breakdown of society.”
Crystal Head Vodka Is His Nod To An Alleged Central American Alien Discovery
When Aykroyd introduced Crystal Head Vodka in 2008, he was making a direct reference to the legend of the Crystal Skulls that also appeared in the movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Before rolling out the vodka, Aykroyd said he was nervous about incurring the wrath of Steven Spielberg. Fortunately, when the two met to talk about their similarly named products, Spielberg requested the vodka be served at the film premiere.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Aykroyd claimed the vodka is made in the “last government-owned distillery in the world in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador” and had won a double gold medal at the “spirit Oscars.”
His Father Wrote A Book About Paranormal Activity
In 2009, Aykroyd’s father, Peter Aykroyd, released an exhaustively researched book called A History of Ghosts, which tells the story of the rise of spiritualism in the Western world while paralleling it with Aykroyd family history. Speaking about the book and paranormal research, the Ghostbusters star said, “It’s the family business, for God’s sake.”
Much of the material in the book was recorded by Peter Aykroyd and his father, Samuel Aykroyd, during séances. While researching the book, Peter Aykroyd found the notes locked in a trunk and began working them into the book.
He Believes In Some Kind Of Afterlife
Even though Aykroyd is a total believer in spirits and extraterrestrials, he’s still not sure about what happens after we die. When asked in a 2012 Telegraph interview if he feared death, the multi-hyphenate actor/paranormal investigator/vodka aficionado said he knows “the spirit survives” but he hopes he’s “not sliced in half by a plate-glass window.”
Aykroyd said his preferred way to pass from this mortal coil would be to “pass through the veil in my 90s at the farmhouse by the lake where the seances took place with all my great-grandchildren around me.”
His Father Approved Of The Opening Scene In ‘Ghostbusters’
Since Aykroyd comes from a family of parapsychologists and paranormal investigators, you might think they were tough on him for taking the family business and turning it into a comedy goldmine in Ghostbusters. That’s not the case, said Aykroyd. His father, Peter, was “elated” with the film and thought that the opening scene where a ghost completely wrecks the basement of the New York Public Library was incredibly accurate.
Peter Aykroyd told the Daily Beast, “It was a pure poltergeist phenomenon and absolutely true to form. Let’s face it, he was writing this thing from conviction. There was truth in that, even though it seemed fantastic.” As much as Peter thought the opening scene was an accurate depiction of a poltergeist, he did feel the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man was a bit much.
Alien Life Might Be so Advanced That It’s Indistinguishable From the Laws of Physics
We’ve never seen aliens … or have we? No, Roswell conspirators, not now. Please sit down. We’re talking in multitudes of higher complexity.
Try this on: Maybe aliens are the puppet masters behind the laws of physics. Or maybe aliens literally are physics. Just when we thought we had a grasp on the fundamental constants of the universe, boom, dark matter rips off the mask, and it’s E.T. Too crazy to be true? Prove it.

British science-fiction writer and futurist Arthur C. Clarke famously formulated three adages known as Clarke’s three laws. Of them, number three steals most of the spotlight: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
Consider cavemen for a moment. If you hand-delivered an iPhone to an ancient cave-dweller, he’d be dumbfounded at the “magical” device. But give it some time, and Fred Flintstone would probably start tweeting and Snapchatting. Now, let’s crank ‘er up a notch. Imagine technology so advanced, it’s not even recognizable as technology, or magic, for that matter. It could be so advanced that calling it magic would be an insult. Sorry, David Blaine.
One-Word Explanation for Anything: ALIENS
This isn’t all some far-out psychedelic rambling. (Even if it were, we’d still be here for it.) As bonkers as it may sound, Scharf argues that his thought experiment could explain the most mysterious cosmic phenomena. Take our dear ol’ elusive friend, dark matter. This unseen stuff makes up 27 percent of the observable universe, but virtually everything else about it is famously unknown. Based on the assumptions and predictions of cosmologists and astronomers, dark matter could be much more complicated than we’re ready to understand. Inconsistencies between dark matter models and observations only back that up.
With all this apparent complexity, Scharf says it wouldn’t be outlandish to think that technologically advanced life is stored there. “What better way to escape the nasty vagaries of supernova and gamma-ray bursts than to adopt a form that is immune to electromagnetic radiation? Upload your world to the huge amount of real estate on the dark side and be done with it.” The inconsistencies might just be a result of being artificially tampered with.
You can run a similar exercise with the elusive dark energy, which makes up roughly 68 percent of the universe. The universe didn’t start expanding at an accelerated rate until a cool 5 billion years ago, and scientists don’t know why. Well, well, well, how convenient.
According to Scharf, an advanced alien civilization could have bumped the speed up so they wouldn’t have to live in such a crowded, hot mess of a universe. “Any very early life in the universe would have already experienced 8 billion years of evolutionary time by the time expansion began to accelerate,” he writes. “It’s a stretch, but maybe there’s something about life itself that affects the cosmos, or maybe those well-evolved denizens decided to tinker with the expansion.”
Note that the ideas Scharf is putting out there are just that: ideas. None of this is peer-reviewed or even testable (YET). This is just one brave astrobiologist on a mission to brainstorm the boundaries of theoretical possibility and make you paranoid beyond all reason that every inescapable, so-called law of “nature” affecting you is extraterrestrial intelligence. We’re just having fun, kids!
Scharf signs off with a mind-bender: “Perhaps hyper-advanced life isn’t just external. Perhaps it’s already all around. It is embedded in what we perceive to be physics itself, from the root behavior of particles and fields to the phenomena of complexity and emergence. In other words, life might not just be in the equations. It might be the equations.”

A pilot of the Turkish Airlines company records a UFO from the cabin
It has always been said that the only people who see UFOs are anonymous people, who get carried away by the stereotype that has been perpetuated by the world of science fiction, leading to erroneous identifications of what they have witnessed. But the reality is quite another, UFOs are sighted by men and women from all walks of life, and from all social and economic classes: from chefs to bankers, cleaning staff to surgeons, writers and politicians. So, it should not surprise us that those who spend their working days in the heavens also witness the so-called anomalous aerial phenomena . In fact, the cases of encounters of pilots with UFOs are considered more credible than any other.
And if we have to mention a particular case, the first thing that comes to mind is the flight 1628 of Japan Air Lines was, a UFO incident that occurred on November 17, 1986. The crew of the Japanese cargo plane Boeing 747- 200F, which was en route from Paris to Narita International Airport, near Tokyo, saw a UFO, in addition to being detected by the radars. The meeting lasted approximately seven minutes and the crew, made up of the captain, the co-pilot and the flight engineer, assured that two spacecraft stopped in front of the plane while emitting very intense lights, to such an extent that they felt the heat in the interior cabin.
The witnesses had experience and lots of flight hours, including Captain Teraushi Kenju, a former Japanese fighter pilot with more than 29 years of flight experience. Undoubtedly, this incident is one of the best known UFO cases in the history of aviation, but it is not the only one. Now, a stunt pilot has recorded a UFO flying at high speed from his cabin during a flight.
The Turkish UFO
Turkish captain Atilla Şentürk, from the Turkish Airlines area company, saw the strange object during a commercial flight from Istanbul to Cologne on May 10 . Şentürk recorded the white object moving in circles at an “incredible speed” from his plane. Half tricks have published the video, which shows the UFO emitting flashes of light on the horizon. Due to its distance from the plane, the object can not be clearly seen.
“During the flight from Germany to Cologne, we saw an incredibly bright object at high altitude ,” Şentürk told CNN in Turkey . “It was not a satellite or a star.”
The pilot added that the object quickly disappeared moments after it was recorded. Although the media usually report on UFO sightings, the pilot declared that he himself had never seen anything like it in his entire career.
“It was the first time I saw something like this,” added Şentürk. “He was very close to us and very bright despite the sun. I had never seen anything fly so fast. “
In addition to the captain, the flight cabin supervisor and the First Officer also witnessed the object of unknown origin . Since the images were taken by a pilot of a commercial plane, the Turkish media have echoed the unusual encounter. And how could it be otherwise, social networks have also reacted. There are many who have been surprised with what you see in the video, ensuring that the UFO was following the trajectory of the plane.
They also recalled that an incident similar to 2013 could have occurred, when a Boeing 757 from the Air China company hit an unidentified flying object . On that occasion, the encounter occurred at an altitude of 26,000 feet only 20 minutes after the plane took off.
There were no injuries between the passengers and the crew, but the plane was forced to make an emergency landing at the Shuangliu airport in China. Although most surprising of all was that when landing, the operators saw the aircraft visibly damaged. For the skeptics, both the sighting of Şentürk and similar ones are simply wrong identifications, completely forgetting that the witnesses are experienced pilots with a large number of flight hours.
What is your opinion about the video? Is it a UFO chasing the plane? Or do you have another explanation?
Black and red UFO is spotted and terrifies driver in Nashville
SPOOKY footage shows a blank triangular UFO with red flashing lights hovering over a car as the terrified driver can be heard bursting into tears and saying”f**k, f**k”.
The driver then leaves her husband a series of panic-stricken voice messages, shared with Sun Online, in which she tells him “Baby I’ve just seen a spaceship.”
The motorist spotted the strange black triangle with red lights underneath it while driving home from a dance class in Nashville, Tennessee, in the USA.
She was recording herself singing on her phone when she decided to point the camera towards the road ahead.
Suddenly three red lights appeared in the distance and started moving slowly towards her car.
As they got closer, the woman sees them and she can be heard whispering “f**k, f**k” before she bursts into tears in sheer panic – and tried to call her husband.
The driver told Sun Online: “I kept looking in my back seat just to make sure I was still alone in my car. I was terrified but my husband wouldn’t answer his phone.”
She described the craft as a large black triangle covered in red lights, which was “shiny and had a very sleek design”.
The witness, who does not wish to be named, spotted the weird lights near the city of Murfreesboro last Tuesday at around 11.30pm.
She explained: “I was driving home from Nashville, I was alone and I was singing. All of a sudden it just seems to appear out of nowhere and it was hovering over my car.
“It was probably the size of three cars but it was a triangle. There was no sound.
“It was black and had a very nice sleek design.
“The red lights where all nicely placed in rows, but there were some line shape lights. The material was shiny.
“The brightness of the lights weren’t extremely bright because I don’t remember the red being reflected anywhere or like inside my car. Unless it was too far away for it to make my car reflect red light.
“I started to cry and my initial thought was confusion because I was wondering what a device like that is doing out here and so low to the ground and because I didn’t know what I was looking it.
“It was completely foreign until I had the realisation that it was absolutely a UFO.”
After the disturbing incident, she frantically tried calling her husband but she couldn’t get through to him.
In a series of panic-stricken voicemails, she pleads: “Baby please answer me, I just saw a spaceship. I’m scared, I just saw a spaceship. I saw it clearly, please answer me.
“It had three points, it was a triangle and it was in the sky.”
In another voice message, realising she had inadvertently filmed the UFO, she says: “I have a video of it, I was recording as I was singing and I got it, I got it. I’m going to send it to you ok.”
Clearly frustrated by not being able to get through, she adds: “Why don’t you ever answer when I need you the most? What the f**k dude?”
The witness said: “I stopped recording so I could call my husband and get help or let him know what was happening because it felt like I was going to be taken. I sped up and all I could focus on was getting away from it.
“When I looked back the first time it was there then I looked again and it was gone, maybe it disappeared.
“I kept imagining that an actual alien would just appear on my back seat so I kept looking in my back seat just to make sure I was still alone in my car. I was terrified and my husband wouldn’t answer his phone. Until I sent him some voice notes.”
Eventually her husband texted her back: “Holy sh*t dude.”
