Nordic aliens are one of several types of extraterrestrial featured in the UFO mythos. Nordic aliens are said by self-described contactees and some UFOlogists to be a group of humanoid extraterrestrials who resemble European racial images, or more specifically Nordic-Scandinavians.
Nordics are typically described as six to seven feet tall with long blond hair and blue eyes, and are commonly reported as being male. Their skin is said to range from fair colored to tanned, and they are sometimes reported to wear skintight clothing. Nordic contacts, often from Venus, were frequently reported in the 1950s and 1960s, but declined after that. Purported contactees claim to have witnessed the Nords beaming down from gold or silver colored crescent-shaped UFOs or from gigantic bright cigar-shaped UFOs.
Nordic aliens have been described as benevolent or even “magical” beings who want to observe and communicate with humans. Contactees have said that the Nordics are concerned about the earth’s environment or prospects for world peace, and may transmit messages telepathically.
American social worker John Carpenter said that the typical Nordic, as described by those he interviewed, “is paternal, watchful, smiling, affectionate, youthful, and all-knowing.” Stephanie Kelley-Romano says that the Nordics “are often associated with spiritual growth and love and act as protectors for the experiencers.”
A few claimants say that the Nordics have warned them about the grey aliens, but other claimants say that they have seen Nordics inside the same craft as greys. In such reports, the Nordics are often interpreted as leaders, with the greys as their subordinates. Jenny Randles writes that although she believes Nordics have “certainly” been involved in abductions she feels the abduction is “less essential to the encounter than it is with the greys.”
