Sumerian Tablets and Ancient Aliens
The Anunnaki were revered as gods who came down from heaven. They had extraordinary long lifespans. The History Channel's Ancient Aliens series in Season 6, Episode 3 discusses seven Cuneiform tablets discovered that are believed related to the Anunnaki.
Who Were the Anunnaki?
The Cuneiform tablets were dated to be from 4,000 BC Mesopotamia and contained a list of 140 Kings. It is written on one of the tablets that one of these kings reigned for 36,000 years! If the Anunnaki were aliens, then it appears their lifespans are far greater than some of the Biblical notables, such as Methuselah who lived 969 years and Noah who lived 950 years.
Sumerian God Aliens?
History told in ancient Cuneiform tablets tells of the Anunnaki who ruled over the Sumerians. They were called gods and said to be from the heavens. Ancient alien theorists believe the Anunnaki were in fact, aliens, who came to Earth to mine gold.

Zecharia Sitchin's Ancient Astronauts
The popular ancient alien theorist, the late Zecharia Sitchin, claimed to have decoded ancient Sumerian tablets that tell about the arrival of the Anunnaki from a 12th planet known as Nibiru. Scholars quickly condemned Sitchin's work as misinterpretations of the ancient Sumerian texts and noted many inaccuracies in his claims.
Nibiru, the 12th Planet
In spite of the scholarly ridicule, Sitchin found a vast audience for his theories. According to Sitchin, the monster-sized planet Nibiru, also known as Planet X, home of the Anunnaki, sits on the outer skirts of the solar system. Nibiru supposedly has a 3,600-year elliptical orbit of the sun. Sitchin believed whenever Nibiru neared the Earth's gravitational field it caused catastrophic events on Earth, possibly a distinction level cataclysm.
Disappearance of the Anunnaki
Sitchin also believed the disappearance of the Anunnaki was due to their planet leaving its near Earth orbit. He theorized that the Anunnaki would return to Earth when Nibiru once more came into orbit near Earth. In addition, he believed the return of Nibiru would herald disastrous earth changes.

Anunnaki Need for Gold
It's theorized that the Anunnaki mined gold for their planet's atmosphere. The gold was used to create some type of shield to protect their fragile atmosphere. Earth's wealth of gold was highly prized and the Anunnaki needed greatly physical labor than they had.
