Other Planets have Aliens? Do they visit us? What Image Have They Been Created By? Are they little green men or just like us? What do Mormons believe about Aliens from other planets?

Mormon Beliefs About Aliens - Page 5
There is nothing prohibiting the visit of other beings from other universes. While all persons pertaining to this universe must be human, why cannot others pass through?
Probably for the same reason that no one could pass through to the Americas: the aliens would want to stay here! Read:
Wherefore, I Lehi, prophesy...that there shall none come into this land save they shall be brought by the hand of the Lord. Wherefore, this land is consecrated unto him whom he shall bring... Behold, it is wisdom that this land should be kept as yet from the knowledge of other nations, for behold, many nations would overrun the land....
I believe, after all, that a common theme of Hollywood sci-fi is that the aliens want our earth.
Also, Hugh Nibley wrote:
Not only is God rendered invisible by the impenetrable veil of light that surrounds him, but he has purposely "placed veils between the worlds," that all treasures may be hid from those who do not seek them in the proper way. On the other side of the veil of the temple lay "the secrets of heaven," the celestial spaces which know no bounds, and all that they contain. The wilon (veil) quarantines this polluted world mercifully from the rest. "Beyond the veil are the heavens," and that goes for other worlds as well as this one, for each is shut off by its veil, for there are aeons and veils and firmaments: "He made a veil for their worlds, surrounding them like a wall.- Nibley Hugh, Nibley on the Timely and the Timeles, Treasures in the Heavens
It may be argued, that the veil exists only between our world, and worlds more advanced than ours. Still, it confirms that they do not pass through. There is a better quote from him, I"ll keep looking for it.
ready pioneer also said:
Many people who see spirits are told that they are crazy or hallucinating, why should we treat those who see extraterrestrials the same?
I recommend you read "Aliens and UFO's Messengers or Deceivers?" by Thompson, I believe. It is very convincing that aliens and evil spirits are one and the same.
