Greys are among the earliest examples of alleged extraterrestrial life believed to exist in human culture. The existence of these beings has been strongly promoted by ufologists and New Age communities and is described in half of all reported alien encounters in the United States. Throughout the late 20th century, Greys have been frequently regarded in popular culture and many paranormal theorists have investigated into possible alien incursions. This has also led to a number of conspiracy theories regarding the purpose behind the Greys' visits to Earth and several hoax encounters between Greys and humans. As yet, no solid proof of Grey's existence has been discovered, but speculation on them continues to this day.


An event most often associated with Grey aliens is the Roswell Crash in New Mexico in summer 1947. Details of this event are difficult to tease out from the masses of official and unofficial material on the subject, which tends to extremes of conspiracy theory and of official cover-up. It is very difficult to tell which documents and accounts of this event are real, which are fake and which are just out of context, and range from a theory that the US government was using saucer-shaped weather balloons to test for a surveillance program, only to be foisted by its own radar patard, to the USSR deliberately sending balloons with child-sized dummies in them in an effort to cause hysteria in the US, to actual aliens.


Greys have commonly been described as humanoid beings with hairless grey skin (hence the name), standing between 2-4 feet tall, sporting bulbous heads and large black eyes. They have also been frequently described as being thin and frail and never wearing clothing. They have no visible ears or sexual organs, tiny noses and short mouths.
