An extraterrestrial object or entity exists or comes from beyond the earth. The term is usually applied to beings and is synonymous with the common use of the word alien to describe such beings. The term became especially popular after Steven Spielberg's blockbuster movie, E.T. (the short form of extraterrestrial.)
