NASA astronauts recall UFO encounters


Posted on Sunday, 8 December, 2013 | Comment icon 202 comments

Several astronauts have come forward over the years to talk about their experiences with UFOs.
Astronaut Gordon Cooper, who flew in to space as part of NASA's Project Mercury in 1963, is well known for his experiences with UFOs. In 1951 he reported witnessing a number of strange objects flying in formation over Germany.

When asked about the sighting he later admitted that the objects seemed to be flying at a higher altitude and at a greater speed than any known human-built aircraft of the time.

In 1957 Cooper witnessed another UFO actually coming in to land on a dry lake bed at Edwards Air Force Base in California. Despite the incident being recorded on film, Cooper never saw nor heard anything about the strange object again.

Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins were also said to have observed something unusual during their trip to the moon. The claim, albeit a controversial one, is based on the transcript of the three men talking about a strange object they witnessed outside the spacecraft.

While some see the incident as evidence that the Apollo 11 crew had seen a UFO, in a 2007 interview Aldrin played down the claims by insisting that the transcript had been misrepresented and that the object they'd seen had been nothing more than a panel that had separated from the spacecraft.

Yes it, is, so why does everthing point to aliens with you? Easy. How could primitive man do what we could not do today? The precision of those joins is staggering and can only be achieved by high tech. No one has remotely proved otherwise on UM since I've been here.

No one has remotely proved otherwise on UM since I've been here. You wouldn't even accept the proof that you call yourself Zoser, but that is besides the point. Getting back to the topic of this thread, why didn't you read Jim's report debunking Kasher?

We explained the basics of masonry to you, zoser. We told you how modern people have duplicated that precision using the simple techniques the ancients used. Some of us have built split stone and have built actual masonry structures and understand these things. You dropped some paving stones in your driveway and think you're an expert. Two weeks later you were showing more astounding pictures of ancient maso... [More]

Some of us have built split stone and have built actual masonry structures and understand these things. You dropped some paving stones in your driveway and think you're an expert. Two weeks later you were showing more astounding pictures of ancient masonry which were more examples of exactly the same techniques we had explained to you two weeks earlier. Not one single word we wasted on you stuck in your brain. A month later you were rerun... [More]

I'm not fooled by fairy tale claims about stone age cave men being able to produce precision walls in very hard stone. In case anyone out there is confused by zoser's statement, aliens are real yet fairies aren't real. Believe what you like; there are no tools and no prozaic explanations to prove how it was done. Yes there are as we have pointed out countless times but they require an understanding of masonry which you don't have. We've also pointed out how these supposedly super precise creations are actually poorly constructed in many ways, worse than what a two-bit contractor with a masonry... [More]

I did. It didn't seem to debunk anything. Period. No, I don't believe you did. Remember what your response was? Way back in post#109, " Another guys word against yours". However, if you had actually read the report you would have known it was TWO guys, Jim, whose credentials should be known to you, and Jeffrey W. Sainio http://www.noufors.c...ey_W_Sainio.htm Among other credentials, graduated Magna Cum Laude, Member of Mensa Manager of Imaging R&D at Quad/Tech Division of Quad graphics, Joined MUFON in Jan. 1991 Research specialist in Photo Analysis Didn't seem to debunk anything?
