According to many UFO researchers, there has always been a connection between the Moon and UFOs. There have been numerous references to UFO by our astronauts.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 ex-NASA employee Otto Binder, ham radio operators overheard this exchange between Apollo 11 and mission control: 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! This, of course, was allegedly proclaimed by Neil Armstrong. 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 Titan.
Looking for Aliens on the Moon
gives us a fascinating look at the possibilites of what might be found on the lunar surface. A lot of buzz has begun since President Bush announced plans for America to return to the Moon. The first missions to the Moon brought back pounds of rocks, which are still being researched today. But, this time the Astronauts may be looking for more than just rocks. Some scientists propose that a search for alien artifacts could be productive. With all the discussion going on today about contacting ET, this sounds plausible. Is it possible that some alien race could have left something behind on the Moon? Maybe, I know the United States did, so why not ET? Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, states: "On the Moon, I think itís certainly worthwhile taking a couple hundred square feet or so of material and looking it over," he says. But SETI researchers "probably wouldn't bet their mortgages on finding anything." Well, we don't have to bet anything, Mr. Shostak, but we still keep an open mind, and hope for the best.
