Pronunciation: as tral fo beeya

Sentence: Stella had but one fear to live with...astralphobia. She was convinced that aliens were invading our planet and that one by one from stars and moons and planets and galaxies, extra-terrestrials were planning an invasion of our world. This fear may in part have been fuelled by films like Independence Day, Invasion of the Body Snatchers and E.T. In fact, she was sure that some space travellers were already amoung us. How else could you explain Donald Trump's Hair or Paris Hilton? She had heard that some were coming here to procreate with humans to help infiltrate our society. She decided that she would never join an on-line dating service just in case. It would be just her luck to meet someone from Uranus or other disgusting places!

Etymology: astral (to do with the stars or heavens) & phobia ( fear of...)
