An Arizona Man Tried To Sell His $6.5 Million Ranch Because Of What He Claimed Were Alien Attacks

New Mexico may get all of the extra terrestrial glory, but alien sightings in Arizona really take the cake. You may have heard of the Phoenix Lights , a 1997 UFO phenomena witnessed by people from Phoenix to Sonora, Mexico. But the most culturally important extra terrestrial run-ins in the state have likely occurred at Stardust Ranch. This idyllic horse ranch has supposedly been the site of alien strikes, abduction attempts, and even interdimensional travel. And now, the property is up for sale. Thanks to John and Joyce Edmonds's alien encounters, the ranch is selling for a reasonable rate; if you’ve got a few million to spare, you could own an important piece of UFO history. It's something that could be pulled straight from the plot of a TV show about aliens .

When a man sells $5 million ranch, you know that his alien encounters have taken a toll. John Edmonds seemed capable of handling the occasional unidentified craft zipping by overhead, but then the aliens tried to take his wife from her bed. Edmonds has had enough – but is he telling the truth?

  • Edmonds Claims He Fought Off Aliens With A Samurai Sword

    The aliens aren't always friendly. John Edmonds says that he's offed 18 "greys" with a samurai sword during his time at the ranch. He even shared a photo of bloodstains supposedly from these encounters.

    But where are the remains? "If you don’t take the heads, they disappear," Edmonds says. He clarified: "Unless you cut the head off and disconnect the antennae, so to speak, they instantly ‘phone home.’ Even with a razor-sharp sword, it is nearly impossible to decapitate them with one swing."

  • The Previous Owners Supposedly Disappeared

    Stardust Ranch is located in Buckeye, AZ, about an hour-and-a-half away from Phoenix, the notorious site of the Phoenix Lights. Maybe that's why there's so much reported alien activity at the ranch.

    According to owner John Edmonds, the property has been a hotbed of extraterrestrial activity since he and his wife first moved in 20 years ago. Creepier still, the previous owners didn't seem to move out. "They had just disappeared, and all their stuff was still in the house," Edmonds said.

  • Edmonds Says Aliens Tried To Take His Wife

    John Edmonds claims that aliens tried to nab his wife right in front of him. He described the terrifying scene:

    There was a cone of light, it came down, and she started to rise into that cone of light. I grabbed an AK-47 with a double banana clip in it, and I went outside and I opened up.

  • The Aliens Appear Inside The House

    The aliens seem to like John Edmonds's home. He claims he's seen and heard them in his sun room, though their presence causes some damage to the house:

    The speed generated by their movement (3 critters) at once made the glass in the double pane windows actually buzz and misalign in the frames to the point the windows are now very difficult to close and lock properly with out using a screw driver to realign them in the frame first. I believe the high frequency buzz is a side effect of their partial in phase or out of phase inter-dimensional travel.

    Other people may have spotted the E.T.s, too. During a Google Hangouts interview with Kerry Cassidy from Project Camelot, a short figure appeared behind Edmonds.

  • Edmonds Has Collected Samples From The Aliens

    After a particularly nasty squabble, John Edmonds says he was left with a large amount of tissue and fluid samples from the "greys" with whom he shares the ranch. Edmonds wrote that his samples were obtained after he "nearly split [a grey] in two parts with an exceptionally well sharpened Samurai sword."

    According to the people who analyzed the material, the liquid sample "appears to be pure hemoglobin," and the skin "looks like segmented grass except it's not grass."

  • Portals Frequently Appear

    Stardust Ranch is spacious; John Edmonds uses the land to run a horse rescue called Hopeful Hooves. But all that space seems attractive to extraterrestrials, too. Edmonds says he often sees "portals or Star Gate-like openings appear on and around the ranch":

    Such openings are often large enough for triangular craft, wings, or orb-like 'ships' to pass through. These objects leave the space around the ranch and other craft reenter the sky around the ranch and portal by passing through it.
