The paranormal enthusiast and Ghostbusters actor has had his own share of unexplained encounters.
Being a co-writer and cast member of the hit 1984 supernatural comedy Ghostbusters, it would be fair to say that Dan Aykroyd is certainly no stranger to the weird and mysterious.

Over the years, he has hosted numerous documentaries and shows about UFOs, ghosts and all sorts of other mysteries and it seems as though he has had a fair few of his own encounters with the unknown as well.

Speaking in a recent interview with Fox News, Aykroyd recounted the time he witnessed a UFO in the sky outside a hotel he had been staying at with a friend in Montreal, Canada.

"The most spectacular one that I saw was about 50 feet away from me and on the 23rd floor of a hotel in Montreal," he said. "We looked out the window, and there was this big grey object, 100 feet long, 50 feet high, with what looks like a bunch of grapes underneath it, you know?"
"It just sat there, and we got a good look at it for about a minute and a half and then it kind of turned slowly, no sound, and it just drifted off."

"We ran into the hall and saw it drift into the St. Lawrence River."

As for what it could have been, Aykroyd remains unsure.

"Now that thing was not a helicopter, was not any kind of aircraft, it was right there present, right in front of us," he said.

"Whether it was occupied or not, who was operating it, I don't know, I can't say that. But I know what I saw and I know I had a witness with me, and I know that was a vivid, vivid sighting."

That isn't what you initially posted. Care to try and move the goal posts some more?? Nice try though.

I posted a request for information. I never even said it wasn’t true. Just asked for a link.    More importantly I asked for proof that he  refused to provide information about his sighting. Didn’t get a link for that either. And again, I didn’t even deny that it may be true. Just asked for information on claims made.  I moved no goal posts.    Then you all threw a fit that I wouldn’t spend time to prove or disprove your claims. Or the claims another made that you decided to back, with no links.

Oh, now that's kind of funny when looking at your responses. ?  I never didn't thew a fit or anything like that. I simply provided a cogent response to your erroneous claim and request for proof. You backpedaled and tried moving nthe goalposts and goit called on that as well.  No need to get all lathered up. You made mistake, it happens. Good day to you.?

*sighs* Again, that's not what you initially stated. Also, trying to change the verbiage is just making you look silly and desperate. Let it go man. Once again, good day to you. No need to respond.?

On some topics that is fine.  But on things like ufo abductions?  And what about if you know the person is gullible?  I've had numerous experiences where I've been lied to by people I would have thought were honest, but more than that, I've also had several experiences (a couple deliberate..) that have shown me that I have false memories (some that were transferred by my brain from dreams into memories), that I have perceived stuff incredibly inaccurately, and that I have hallucinated while wide awake (not drugged, just very tired).  Also, people are loving and empathetic, and when you put...
