“Ancient Aliens” season 6, episode 20: “Destination Orion” airs tonight on the History Channel.
This episode examines why ancient civilizations around the world were so focused on the Orion constellation. While scientists cite many Earthly connections, researchers suggest this point in the night sky may have been a so-called Stargate, or entry point for alien life forms. If extraterrestrials have been visiting Earth for thousands of years, might they have originated from the Orion Nebula?
Produced with the exclusive cooperation of controversial Swiss author Erich von Daniken himself, “Ancient Aliens” launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on the latest discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings in man’s evolution and newly decoded artifacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.
“Ancient Aliens” season 6, episode 20: “Destination Orion” airs March 21 at 10 p.m. EST on the History Channel.
