ALIENS MONTH to uncover the secrets of this solar system and beyond

Discovery Channel’s special event Aliens Month gathers the best (and most open) minds to take you beyond planet Earth in a series of investigations, clandestine operations, and behind-the-scenes footage to uncover the secrets of this solar system and beyond.

Each weekend in July from 8:30pm, experts in the field – from scientists to UFO chasers – will reveal insider knowledge about the secret locations that have sparked controversy, conspiracies, and whether contact has been made with extraterrestrial life. The truth is out there, and it’ll send your mind into outer space!

Whether you’re a believer, sceptic, conspiracy theorist or just open-minded, Aliens Month features a line-up of premiere content and favourites from the archive that cover all bases for a comprehensive look at the potential for extraterrestrial life.  Tune in throughout the month to learn about infamous cases, on the ground stories, firsthand experiences and the science behind new projects and discoveries that set out to explain the inexplicable.

In Storming Area 51 (Saturday 4 July at 9:30pm), alien enthusiaststhe UFO Bros, Joe and Emmett Hayes, head to the Nevada desert to embrace the pandemonium of the Storm Area 51 event of September 2019. There, they uncover credible reports of UFO encounters from the military outpost that was so covert, the U.S government denied its existence until 2013. The special looks at the history of the top-secret facility and the culture of those dedicated to the cause. Meanwhile in Alien Highway (Sundays from 5 July at 8:30pm)former Colorado law enforcement officer Chuck Zukowski has been researching and investigating UFO-related incidents for over 30 years – now, together with his son, Daniel, he’s after definitive proof.

Also, on the lineup for Aliens Month is the two-part ‘Encyclopedia Galactica’ of non-Earth life forms, Aliens: The Definitive Guide, which uses cutting-edge research to answer some extraordinary questions, such as what aliens may look and sound like. Also, Alien Planet Earths uses CGI to reveal the billion-dollar projects that extract new evidence about aliens and distant worlds. You can also enjoy Contact, UFOs: The Lost Evidence, and more, as this special event leaves room for the impossible.

As a bonus, join Discovery’s own intrepid explorer, Josh Gates on Tuesday nights when he returns in Expedition Unknown: Hunt for Extraterrestrials. In this spin-off series he travels the globe to explore ancient signs of aliens, gains access to some of the world’s most top secret sites, uses futuristic technology to gaze into the final frontier, and leaves no stone unturned as he tackles mankind’s greatest question – are we alone in the universe?
