announced an important message to all Earthlings

And did we listen, Nope.


Southern Television region of ITV, not The BBC. And 1977 of course, although I know it’s not fun to let the facts get in the way of a good story. The Wikipedia entry has spoilers.


They really had my hopes up! Is this a message decrying fake news and the perils of religious delusion? Will this important visitor explain to us the virtues of scientific pursuit, and maybe even tell us how to achieve sustainable energy? Will they tell us about coming asteroid strikes and the need to develop a multilateral emergency response in order to keep the planet safe?

Nope. Nuclear power = evil. F*cking hippie aliens.

This is the voice of Gramaha, the Representative of the Asta (Ashtar in some texts) Galactic Command speaking to you.

This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius.

Misheard lyrics: in my minds it’s always
when the Moon is in the second house
and Jupiter collides with Mars
