Stories of alien encounters are often considered fantastical, with accounts so outrageous, so strange, that many struggle to believe them. The encounters are often one-offs, a simple chance that someone was able to spot what they believe to be a UFO, only to have it disappear forever.
One family, though, had a very different sort of alien encounter. They not only saw aliens but were tormented by them, experiencing years of attacks as the otherworldly beings seemed to target their home.
These experiences, no matter your belief in the paranormal, can be distressing for those who go through them. Distressing events can lead to fears, anxieties, and worries preventing us from living a full life.

What Else Lives There
Stories of haunted houses are incredibly popular not only within the horror genre, but often in real life too. People share the ways that spirits have manifested in their homes, either causing outright chaos or simple unease.
What if, instead of ghosts haunting a home, it was something else? What if your home attracted a different kind of fantastical, supernatural, yet still dangerous type of guest that seemed bent on terrorizing its tenants?
An Alien Attraction
After dealing with bouts of what he calls paranormal activity, Arizona man John Edmonds tried to sell his 9.67-acre horse ranch, having had enough of the supernatural attacks he reported suffering through.
Named Stardust Ranch, it resides in Rainbow Valley, Arizona, and seems to be a real hotbed for one type of strange activity in particular: alien visits.
Edmonds and his wife, Joyce, had had enough of the antics their supposed intergalactic guests would cause and were looking for an out.
There Was Always Surprises
The two had owned the ranch for over 20 years, having bought it in 1995 to expand their horse rescue organization (a fact mentioned on the property's original listing). It also noted that "Over the years, [the owners] have experienced a series of strange events that continue to this day."
Edmonds was rather active on his Facebook page, documenting these events and claiming that he believed them to be the result of alien attacks on him, his wife, and his home.
"Almost immediately from the day we moved in, we began to have strange experiences," he told KPNX. Edmonds had appeared in numerous shows, interviews, and other international media discussing what he's seen and how certain he is that aliens are targeting his home.
He's uploaded photos of injuries—namely marks and bruises of which he doesn't know the origin—as well as mysterious lights he sometimes spotted in the sky above the ranch. He even uploaded a photo of a sword sitting on a pool of what appears to be dried blood. He claimed was used to fight some of the aliens who came down onto the ranch.
No Fear, No Bodies
"Grabbed by the two that fought me with it and disappeared. Some residual tissue and fluids on the sword," he wrote in a comment under the photo.
When someone noted that he never appeared to have any bodies to prove these attacks, he said, "No 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."
Someone else noted how scary that sounded, under which he continued, "I have no fear just wish we had the camera system in place to keep a video record of it all! Maybe we could get and HBO special or something."
Edmonds claimed he had killed 19 aliens in total over his years living at Stardust Ranch.
After putting the ranch up on the market for $5 million, Realtor Kimberly Gero said that reactions from potential buyers had been rather mixed.
"Some are very intrigued and have no issues with the history of the property, while others are absolutely scared to death about what may or may not happen to them if they should buy it," she said.
His Wit's End
Besides the paranormal draw, the property comes equipped with a ranch house that has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a large pool.
Edmonds expressed his desire to move away from Stardust Ranch often, frustrated by his alien plague. The day he posted a photo of "wounds from recent attack here at Stardust Ranch upper right calf from battle with malevolent ET," he also made a post that read, "this is why I want to move!"
The aliens hadn't only been attacking him—they also went after his wife, which was largely the final straw.
Edmonds says the beings actually attempted to abduct her. "They actually levitated her out of the bed in the master chamber and carried her into the parking lot and tried to draw her up into the craft," he explained.
Stardust Ranch was so prolific for its alien activity, that Edmonds also said he was visited by "the real Men In Black."
A Unique Property
When it came to finding a buyer, Gero was hopeful the ranch's paranormal fame would draw someone suitable. "Obviously, it is going to take a unique person who has a true curiosity and interest in the property's history. I have no doubt that there is a buyer out there for this special place," she said.
Edmonds, though he wanted to leave, also warned potential buyers about the dangers associated with the ranch. As he explained, "It's a mixed bag. It’s not something for a traditional family, but it holds a lot of secrets and what I believe are future opportunities to understand forces that are in the universe."
"Please be very well grounded because the energy here has the tendency to manifest with whatever is going on with you."
As it turns out, the Stardust Ranch was never sold. Edmonds continued to live there for five more years until his death in 2022. After he passed, fundraising attempts were made so Joyce could save the ranch while also keeping up with Edmonds' medical bills, but it appears to have fallen through. On Zillow, the property is listed as having been sold this year for just under $685,000.
Together On Earth
Joyce was married to John for 28 years, so his death must have been extremely hard on her. That, mixed with the foreclosure of her home after hospital expenses ate up the family funds, would surely leave anybody devastated.
Though Edmonds has passed, and thus his alien antics come to a halt, his legacy remains in the hearts of those who followed the tale of the Stardust Ranch.
A family friend who had organized the fundraiser shared something touching Edmonds had once told her, "Our planet is filled with meaningful lives and extraordinary people." That's a sentiment we can all carry with us.
