Dan Aykroyd Says He Has 'Seen Four' UFOs, Is A 'Believer'

By Ishita Singh, The Huffington Post staff

During Dan Aykroyd's appearance on The HuffPost Show, the actor and comedian revealed that he has seen four UFOs and believes in extra-terrestrial life.

The "Ghostbusters" star described the four crafts in great detail. "Two specifically were definitely aerial constructs of some kind," he explained to hosts Roy Sekoff and Marc Lamont Hill. "One of them with a light, and one of them dull gray, and they were structures -- one of them going very slow, one of them hovering over me."

"And then there were the two that my wife and friends and I saw, high-altitude sighting, many years ago in Martha's Vineyard -- two flying side by side, they were about 100,000 feet up and they were going fast."

Aykroyd also discussed the government's reluctance to confirm the existence of extra-terrestrial species.

"There's probably many species coming and going. The Air Force is very interested. They don't deny the existence but they can't come out and say it," he explained, "because then you're going to go, 'well wait a minute, the parish priest, the cop on the street, the President -- you don't got the power. They've got the power!'"

"You'd have complete breakdown of society," he added.
