ET CONTACTS and UFO
"I believe that these
extra-terrestrial vehicles and their
crews are visiting
this planet from other planets"
- Major Gordon Cooper to the
MAJOR GORDON COOPER
Major Gordon cooper was one 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, he 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 radar. Cooper's 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.
Major Cooper was a firm believer
in UFOs. Ten years earlier, in 1951 he had sighted a
UFO while piloting an F-86 Sabrejet over Western
Germany. They were metallic, saucer-shaped discs at
considerable altitude and could out-manoeuvre all
American fighter planes.
Major Cooper also testified before the United Nations:
"I believe that these
extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are
visiting this planet from other planets... Most
astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs." ..... "I
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."
And according to a taped
interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said:
"For 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. Why? 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."
"I 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 indentions 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
ED WHITE & JAMES McDIVITT
In 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.
JAMES LOVELL AND FRANK BORMAN
In 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 completely different.
Conversation during James Lovell's flight on Gemini 7:
Lovell: BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK
Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7.
Lovell: SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH.
Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an
Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL... ACTUAL SIGHTING.
Capcom: ...Estimated distance or size?
Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT.
NEIL ARMSTRONG AND EDWIN
According 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. According to hitherto un-confirmed 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.
According 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...
Apollo11: 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
A certain professor, who wished
to remain anonymous, was engaged in a discussion with
Neil Armstrong during a NASA symposium:
What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11?
Armstrong: 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"?
Armstrong: 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
But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?
Armstrong: Naturally - NASA was committed at that
time, and couldn't risk panic on Earth. But it
really was a quick scoop and back again.
According to a Dr. Vladimir
"Neil 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
According 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. Armstrong
confirmed that the story was true but refused to go
into further detail, beyond admitting that ... the CIA
was behind the cover-up.
Donald Slayton a Mercury
astronaut revealed in an interview he had seen UFOs in
"I 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." As 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.
About 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 disappeared."
MAJOR ROBERT WHITE
On July 17, 1962 Major Robert
White reported a UFO during his fifty-eight-mile high
flight of an X-15. Major White reported:
"I have no idea what it
could be. It was grayish in color and about thirty
to forty feet away."
Then according to a Time
Magazine article, Major White exclaimed over the
"There ARE things out
there! There absolutely is!"
NASA PILOT JOSEPH A. WALKER
On 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:
"I don't feel like speculating
about them. All I know is what appeared on the film
which was developed after the flight." - Joseph
To date none of those films has
been released to the public for viewing.
COMMANDER EUGENE CERNAN
Eugene Cernan was commander of
In a Los Angeles Times article
in 1973 he said, about UFOs:
"I've been asked (about
UFOs) and I've said publicly I thought they (UFOs)
were somebody else, some other civilization."
NASA'S MAURICE CHATELAIN
In 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
"The encounter was common
knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it
"...all 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 absolute
"I 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."
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 astronauts 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?
"At no time, when the
astronauts were in space were they
there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."
- NASA's Scott Carpenter
We have a right to know
"...all 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
name. Every time it occurred, the
astronauts informed Mission
Control, who then
ordered absolute silence."
