Buzz Aldrin, Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper – all former NASA astronauts – recount the incredible events of the UFO encounters.

Buzz Aldrin

In an interview back in 2005 with the Science Channel, Edwin ‘ Buzz’ Aldrin indicated that he saw an unidentified flying object which followed Apollo 11 on the 1969 Lunar landing mission and may have contained aliens.

In a youtube video recording, Aldrin recounts the experience and the conversation with mission control:

 “[There was] something out there that was close enough to be observed, and what could it be?

“Mike [Collins] decided he thought he could see it in the telescope and he was able to do that. When it was in one position, it has a series of ellipses. But when you made it real sharp, it was sort of L-shaped. That didn’t tell us very much.

“Obviously the three of us were not going to blurt out, ‘Hey Houston, we’ve got something moving alongside of us and we don’t know what it is; can you tell us what it is? We weren’t about to do that, because we know that those transmissions would be heard by all sorts of people and who knows what somebody would have demanded? That we turn back because of aliens, or whatever the reason.”

The crew decided not to discuss it further until debriefing. Afterward though, NASA astrophysicist David Morrison reported that Aldrin spoke with him after the interview, and claimed it was probably a panel seperated from the craft at one of the various stages, a normal procedure.



Edgar Mitchell 

Edgar Mitchell flew in Apollo 14 in 1971 to the moon, recognised as the sixth man to set foot on the moon. His recount of events to WPTV tells that he is absolutely certain aliens are watching us and that the government is completely aware of this.

“I don’t know how many or where or how they’re doing it, but they’ve been observing us and here for quite some time. We see these craft all the time,” he said.

“I believe what I’m saying and I cite the evidence that I know,” Mitchell said.

Many UFO blogs and online enthusiasts cite a leaked transcript by a former NASA employee from after the Apollo 11 landing. The conversation takes place between the crew, mission control, and an unnamed professor.

“Apollo 11” is quoted: “These babies are huge … You wouldn’t believe it. I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out there … lined up on the far side of the crater edge.

“They’re on the moon watching us.”

Astronaut Neil Armstrong is quoted as saying, “We were warned off.”

The name of the NASA employee is Otto Binder, who is actually a famous sci-fi author, which casts some doubt on this transcript.

According to the transcript, when Armstrong is questioned further, he states:

“I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology—Boy, were they big … and menacing. … No, there is no question of a space station.”



Gordon Cooper

Gordon Cooper is one of the original 7 NASA astronauts, piloting the last Project Mercury space mission back in 1963.

In 1951, he was in flight with the U.S Air Force in Germany when he witnessed many UFO’s in high altitude, in formation. They were flying much higher and faster than any man made aircraft, he states in an interview with Yolanda Gaskins in 1996 on Paranormal Borderline.

“We couldn’t get anywhere near their altitude,” he said. After filing a report, he explained, “the answer that finally came back months later is they were probably high-flying seed pods, which didn’t sound very logical.”

Afterward, in 1957, his military crew filmed footage of a saucer shaped UFO landing on a dry lake bed, sitting on 3 standing legs. When they approached the craft, it took off. The film was given to his superiors, and never saw the light of day again.

These incredible encounters are only strengthened by their official professions.
