Ever since astronauts have been going into space they’ve observed strange lights floating about up there, some close some far away, lights which often make direction changes and right angle turns, and ever since astronauts have been going into space and seeing strange lights their superiors have told them not to talk about what they are seeing, “don’t talk about the cool interesting lights Aldrin, just concentrate on repairing boring circuit board 357.2, slowly”. So whats the big deal? If we, the people of earth were told by NASA “yes, there are about a hundred alien orb CCTV camera type things in our atmosphere which occasionally keep an eye on our shuttles and space station” would we really all fall to our knees and start crying and praying, or run out side with pillows over our heads and stop going to work? It’s highly doubtful, even in the 1950′s such a reaction would have probably only occurred in people with a more extreme personality, but after fifty odd years of hollywood conditioning about intelligent aliens (much of it negative for some reason) I imagine we could collectively cope with the news.
So who’s being seeing what? Firstly we have Major Gordon Cooper who was the last American astronaut to go into space on a solo mission, in 1963 while on an Earth orbiting flight mission he reported seeing a “glowing green object quickly approaching his capsule”, the UFO was also picked up by the ground station’s radar equipment which confirmed his sighting. In a later interview which can be viewed on YouTube titled “NASA astronaut Major Gordon Cooper talks about UFOs while in the military” he talks about an incident in 1951 where he witnessed hundreds of UFOs fly in formation above him while he was piloting a sabre jet over western Germany. Major Cooper reported this sighting to his superiors and the response they finally came back with was that “they were probably high altitude sea pods” which of course makes all kinds of sense.
Next up is Donald Slayton, an astronaut with the Mercury Seven group, which was the only astronaut group to fly all of NASA’s manned orbital spacecraft, including Gemini, Mercury, Apollo and the Space Shuttle. While testing a fighter jet in the skies above Minneapolis he spotted an object at about 10,000 feet, ahead of him which he first thought was a kite, he quickly realised no kites would fly this high, Slayton reported “As I got closer It looked like a weather balloon, gray and about three feet in diameter. As soon as I got behind the darn thing it did not 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.” I for one don’t believe that any sea pod could achieve these types of maneuvers at speeds greater than 300 miles per hour!
There are of course many other Nasa astronauts who have reported UFO sightings both on and off missions, it’s with the testimony of level headed witnesses like these that we may be able to finally answer the question “ are aliens real?” once and for all.
