Gordo Sees GreenNo one had to convince Major Gordon 'Gordo' Cooper that aliens existed when he became one of NASA’s original Mercury astronauts. He admitted in later years that he had been seeing UFOs since as early as 1951.
Image source Universe TodayOn his 1963 solo orbital mission, he had a close encounter that was broadcast on NBC. Cooper told NASA mission control that he was watching a glowing green object approaching him!
The UFO That Looked Like A Beer CanAstronaut James McDivitt never made a big deal about his close encounter during his 1965 Gemini IV mission. In fact he didn’t even bother to wake up fellow astronaut Ed White when he first spied the UFO outside the capsule window.
Image source Daily ExpressAccording to McDivitt, the object resembled a beer can with a pencil sticking out of the middle. He watched it for almost a minute whilst taking photos.
Aristarchus CraterThe Apollo 11 mission transcended the boundaries of exploration, not only marking humanity's first steps on the lunar surface but also unraveling the mysteries of celestial bodies like the Aristarchus Crater. As Neil Armstrong and his fellow astronauts ventured into the unknown, their keen observations illuminated not only the lunar landscape but also our understanding of the cosmos.
Image source Wikimedia CommonsAs if the crew of Apollo 11 didn’t have enough to think about, they were asked to check out the Aristarchus Crater. Apparently, astronomers on Earth had been noticing for more than a century that the crater would glow brightly. The glowing crater was confirmed instantly by Neil Armstrong, who characterized the glow as 'considerably more illuminated' than its surroundings.
Technical Difficulties Create A Cover-Up?The intersection of space exploration and conspiracy theories has once again taken center stage, with claims of NASA censorship adding a layer of intrigue to the ongoing cosmic narrative. As we navigate the uncharted territories of the universe, the delicate balance between transparency and technical challenges becomes increasingly apparent.
