of the original Mercury Astronauts and the last American
to fly in space alone. On May 15, 1963, he shot into space
in a Mercury capsule for a 22-orbit journey around the
world. During the final orbit, Major Gordon Cooper told
the tracking station at Muchea (near Perth, Australia)
that he could see a glowing, greenish object ahead of
him quickly approaching his capsule. The UFO was real
and solid, because it was picked up by Muchea's tracking
sighting was reported by the National Broadcast Company,
which was covering the flight step by step. But when Cooper
landed, reporters were told that they would not be allowed
to question him about the UFO sighting.
Cooper was a firm believer in UFOs. Ten years earlier,
in 1951, he had sighted UFOs while piloting an F-86 Sabrejet
over Western Germany. They were metallic, saucer-shaped
discs at considerable altitude and could out-maneuver
all American fighter planes.
Cooper also testified before the United Nations:
believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their
crews are visiting this planet from other planets... Most
astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs."
did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation
of many flights of them. of different sizes, flying in
fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe."
according to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major
many years, I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed
on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that
every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects
of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands
of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove
this, but nobody wants to make them public."
Because authority is afraid that people may think of God
knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password
still is: We have to avoid panic by all means."
was furthermore a witness to an extraordinary phenomenon,
here on this planet Earth. It happened a few months ago
in Florida. There, I saw with my own eyes a defined area
of ground being consumed by flames, with four indentations
left by a flying object which had descended in the middle
of a field. Beings had left the craft (there were other
traces to prove this). They seemed to have studied topography;
they had collected soil samples and, eventually, they
returned to where they had come from, disappearing at
enormous speed...I happen to know that authority did just
about everything to keep this incident from the press
and TV, in fear of a panicky reaction from the public."
Ed White and James McDivitt
June 1965, astronauts Ed White (first American to walk
in space) and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii
in a Gemini spacecraft when they saw a weird-looking metallic
object. The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt
took pictures with a cine-camera. Those pictures have
never been released.
Lovell and Frank Borman
December 1965, Gemini astronauts James Lovell and Frank
Borman also saw a UFO during their second orbit of their
record-breaking 14-day flight. Borman reported that he
saw an unidentified spacecraft some distance from their
capsule. Gemini Control, at Cape Kennedy, told him that
he was seeing the final stage of their own Titan booster
rocket. Borman confirmed that he could see the booster
rocket all right, but that he could also see something

Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin
to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the Aliens have
a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to
get off and stay off the Moon.
to hitherto unconfirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and
Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that
historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969.
I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a "light"
in or on a crater during the television transmission,
followed by a request from Mission Control for further
information. Nothing more was heard.
to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams
with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed
NASA's broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
What's there? Mission Control calling Apollo 11...
11: These "Babies" are huge, Sir! Enormous!
OH MY GOD! 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!
certain professor, who wished to remain anonymous, was
engaged in a discussion with Neil Armstrong during a NASA
What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11?
It was incredible, of course we had always known there
was a possibility, the fact is, we were warned off by
the Aliens. There was never any question then of a space
station or a moon city.
How do you mean "warned off"?
Naturally - NASA was committed at that time, and couldn't
risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick scoop and
to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha:
Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that
two large, mysterious objects were watching them after
having landed near the moon module. But this message was
never heard by the public - because NASA censored it."
to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie
film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued
filming them after he and Armstrong went outside.
confirmed that the story was true but refused to go into
further detail, beyond admitting that the CIA was behind
Slayton, a Mercury astronaut, revealed in an interview
he had seen UFOs in 1951:
was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted
this object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright,
sunny afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then
I realized that no kite is gonna fly that high."
I got closer, it looked like a weather balloon, gray and
about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind
the darn thing, it didn't look like a balloon anymore.
It looked like a saucer, a disk."
the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going away
from me - and there I was, running at about 300 miles
per hour. I tracked it for a little way, and then all
of a sudden, the damn thing just took off. It pulled about
a 45-degree climbing turn and accelerated and just flat
July 17, 1962, Major Robert White reported a UFO during
his fifty-eight-mile high flight of an X-15. Major White
have no idea what it could be. It was grayish in color
and about thirty to forty feet away."
according to a Time Magazine article, Major White exclaimed
over the radio:
ARE things out there! There absolutely is!"
Pilot Joseph A. Walker
May 11, 1962, NASA pilot Joseph Walker said that one of
his tasks was to detect UFOs during his X-15 flights.
He had filmed five or six UFOs during his record-breaking
fifty-mile-high flight in April, 1962. It was the second
time he had filmed UFOs in flight. During a lecture at
the Second National Conference on the Peaceful Uses of
Space Research in Seattle, Washington, he said:
don't feel like speculating about them. All I know is
what appeared on the film which was developed after the
flight." - Joseph Walker
date, none of those films has been released to the public
Cernan was commander of Apollo 17. In a Los Angeles Times
article in 1973, he said, about UFOs:
been asked (about UFOs) and I've said publicly I thought
they (UFOs) were somebody else, some other civilization."
1979, Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications
Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing
two UFOs on the rim of a crater. Chatelain believes that
some UFOs may come from our own solar system - specifically
encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has
talked about it until now."
Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance
and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of
extraterrestrial origin - flying saucers, or UFOs, if
you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred,
the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered
think that Walter Schirra aboard Mercury 8 was the first
of the astronauts to use the code name 'Santa Claus' to
indicate the presence of flying saucers next to space
capsules. However, his announcements were barely noticed
by the general public. It was a little different when
James Lovell on board the Apollo 8 command module came
out from behind the moon and said for everybody to hear:
'PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.' Even
though this happened on Christmas Day 1968, many people
sensed a hidden meaning in those words."
rumors persist. NASA may well be a civilian agency, but
many of its programs are funded by the defence budget
and most of the astronauts are subject to military security
regulations. Apart from the fact that the National Security
Agency screens all films and probably radio communications
as well. We have the statements by Otto Binder, Dr. Garry
Henderson and Maurice Chatelain that the astonauts were
under strict orders not to discuss their sightings. And
Gordon Cooper has testified to a United Nations committee
that one of the astronauts actually witnessed a UFO on
the ground. If there is no secrecy, why has this sighting
not been made public?
no time, when the astronauts were in space, were they
alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."
