Nordic Aliens

Nordic aliens is a name given to what are said to be a group of humanoid extraterrestrials. They are so named because they are said to resemble Nordic or Scandinavian racial images.

Nordic aliens form a notable part of UFO/abduction belief and the contactee movement in European nations, but are not commonly found in accounts from the US. Owing to the writings of Ufologist and self-professed contactee Billy Meier, they are sometimes known as Pleiadeans or Errans, and are said to be from the Pleiades star cluster in the constellation of Taurus, although they have been known by other names, and were originally said to come from Venus or other planets within the Solar system.

Nordic aliens are said to be humanoid in appearance, with pale white skin, colorless lips, and hair that is either light blond or white. Some account describe them as having pale blue eyes, though it is more common for them to be described as having red, yellow, green, blue or pink eyes. Most accounts say that they are tall, statuesque, and attractive. It is more common for them to be reported as being male than female.

While Greys make up 75 percent of all reported alien encounters in the US they appear in fewer than 20 percent of European reports. As such, Europeans are several times more likely to report encountering a Nordic alien than a Grey. The nation with the highest proportion of reported encounters with Nordic aliens is the United Kingdom.

Speaking during their 1994 convention in Washington, CSICOP representatives noted that British contact reports typically spoke of Nordic aliens, and did not include include Greys in any number until 1987, when Whitley Strieber's novel Communion became a best seller there.

George Adamski was one of the first contactees to report a description of UFO occupants. On 20 November 1952 he reportedly met and spoke with a being called Orthon, after seeing a UFO in Arizona. Adamski described him as looking human, with long, wavy, blond hair, and that "the beauty of his form surpassed anything I had ever seen". However, Orthon was not entirely human in appearance, having slightly slanted eyes. According to Adamski, Orthon said that he was from Venus.

Howard Menger also claimed to have met similar beings, although his statements are controversial, as he retracted his story - then recanted his retraction. Orfeo Angelucci, and Elizabeth Klarer also described similar beings in their contact stories.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Michael E. Salla suggested the possibility that in February of 1954, at Edwards Air Force Base, United States President Dwight D. Eisenhower had met with some Nordics in an attempt to formulate an agreement over technology exchange, and the elimination of the American nuclear arsenal.

British contactees included Cynthia Appleton in the late 1950s, who claimed that her son Matthew was fathered by a Venusian visitor, and Mollie Thompson a few years later, who also claimed a meeting with blond Venusians, and was sufficiently inspired by the experience to record several songs about it.
