SPACE COWBOYS IN THE UFO RODEO
Some skeptics claim, however, that there is no physical evidence of UFOs and that the eyewitness accounts come from unreliable sources, which are either seeking fame or are out of their minds.
The truth for the skeptic is that at one time UFO accounts were unique and that maybe 30 years ago a wild UFO tale would sell a few pages in FATE magazine or become the latest best seller turning into a major box office motion picture.
However, today the times have changed and the stories are no longer all that special.
Now, that does not mean the stories are not valuable and when they are told by people in society we look up to we pay close attention to what is being said.
I have been particularly curious as to why the older astronauts have now been coming forward on television specials and spinning tales of UFO sightings in space when decades ago none of them would speak. I guess with time comes the ability to either declassify or otherwise speak candidly about so many UFO experiences because in their elder years there is really no need to worry about some type of retribution.
For obvious reasons astronaut encounters with UFO’s fall into the very highest category of sightings. What makes their testimony more valuable than most is the fact that astronauts usually see themselves as objective technical and scientific observers. This is why astronauts have not always been willing to become involved in the debate about UFO’s and the possibility of extraterrestrial visitors.
The SyFy Channel has produced a Television show called “Aliens on The Moon” which has given them the opportunity to corner various astronauts and have them spill the beans on their UFO experiences.
Once such Astronaut is Buzz Aldrin the second man to walk on the moon, who not only appeared on the SyFy Channel special but actually did several news appearances on the networks telling his story of a UFO that followed the Apollo 11 Space craft.
Now for those who are into UFO news and keep abreast of all things UFO both historical and what takes place today, you will note that Aldrin’s weird UFO Tales were first being revealed in 2005 when he spoke of his UFO encounters on the Science Channel. So for those who think that Aldrin telling his UFO stories before the SyFy channel airs Sharknado lacks credibility, then perhaps you should go back to 2005 and also check out all of the television networks where he made statements about UFO’s, alien life and a Monolith on the moon of Mars.
Aldrin also appeared in Reddit to answer questions about UFO’s and gave some hints about possible fossils and abandoned structures left behind on the moon. He of course avoids coming right out and saying that aliens have left behind these structures, however reading between the lines we can safely say that space cowboys have had their run ins with alien folk in the UFO rodeo.
Here is the official quote form Aldrin on the sensitive matter of a UFO following the Apollo 11 crew:
“On Apollo 11 in route to the moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world—it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And I feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don’t know. So technically, the definition could be ‘unidentified.’—Buzz Aldrin speaks about the Apollo 11 UFO
“We well understood exactly what that was. And when we returned, we debriefed and explained exactly what we had observed. And I felt that this had been distributed to the outside world, the outside audience, and apparently it wasn’t, and so many years later, I had the time in an interview to disclose these observations, on another country’s television network. And the UFO people in the United States were very very angry with me, that I had not given them the information.
“It was not an alien. Extraordinary observations require extraordinary evidence. That’s what Carl Sagan said. There may be aliens in our Milky Way galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost CERTAIN that there is life somewhere in space. But the distances involved in where some evidence of life may be, they may be hundreds of light years away.”
The sixth man to walk on the moon Dr, Edgar Mitchell has also been very vocal about UFO’s as well. Now keep in mind that unlike Buzz Aldrin, Mitchell claims to have not seen or has come in contact with a UFO or aliens. Mitchell does say however that there is most definitely a U.S. cover-up and policy of denial as an “embargo of truth.” Mitchell has spoken out about the existence of aliens, alien visitations, and reverse engineering of alien technology by the U.S. government.
There is a recording of Mitchell speaking during an Apollo 14 transmission saying something about having visitors on the moon. While discussing the preparations for the Lunar Rover you can clearly hear him say “looks like we have had visitors again, hardly worth mentioning.”
Mitchell was apparently briefed on the UFO phenomenon during his years within military and intelligence circles. He described most UFOs as being “homegrown,” or reverse-engineered crafts based on original alien technology but not nearly as advanced as the originals.
Astronaut Gordon Cooper, one of seven in the United State’s first manned space program Project Mercury, has also been very outspoken about UFOs and ETs. Cooper claims that he had a close encounter on a dry lakebed during the filming of a precision landing facility.
A UFO saucer flew overhead, extended landing gear legs, and landed on the dry lakebed near the facility’s construction. As the camera crew picked up their gear and began to move toward the saucer, it flew away at a high speed. Cooper sent the developed film to certain authorities in Washington, D.C. After he reported the incident, the film was never seen again.
On March 13th, 1989, Donald Ratsch (an American member of a radio club that monitors all of NASA’s space travel transmissions) was recording communications from the shuttle Discovery STS-29.
He picked the right time to record, because he got this astronaut transmission: “Houston this is Discovery, we still have the Alien spacecraft under observance.” The voice belonged to Colonel John E. Blaha. When the tape was made public NASA claimed ignorance, simply saying that no such incident had occurred. Then when more people were made aware of the transmission NASA said it was Blaha’s way of making a joke.
Then it was examined even further that the quote was not what was earlier reported. The message was actually quite muddled and upon another examination Blaha had stated that the alien spacecraft was not “under observance” but that it was on VFR.
Which means in pilot’s terms, that the object was clear and visible without cloud cover or any other obstacles. Needless to say when people heard the transmission they did not hear anything that sounded humorous about the so called alien spacecraft on VFR or under observance.
There have been several other instances of Shuttles and other space craft that have come in contact with what appear to be extraterrestrial craft. The Apollo 12 astronauts were startled when a UFO continued to stalk them as they were doing their work. Mission control tried without success to explain away what the UFO might be but the astronauts sounded helpless to ascertain just exactly what was happening out in space.
Back then there was always that candid comment from the astronauts that went uncensored. Now however, it seems that NASA has an uncanny ability to shut down any and all conversations about any anomalous objects that may be picked up on their live feed.
On January 29, 2014 the live camera feed of the International Space Station (ISS) showed what appeared to be a strange yellow elliptical object docked with the hull of the ISS. The live camera feed was quickly recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
The video is controversial and there have been a few NASA insiders that have made outrageous claims about Unidentified Craft docking at the space station.
Keep in mind that none of those who have reported the incidents have claimed that aliens are involved.
On June 8th, 2014 a group callings themselves secure team 10 was monitoring he live feed from the ISS when suddenly coming in from the dark area of the screen was a arrow head looking UFO. The second the anomalous object came into view the live feed was cut and a gray screen appeared.
The original ISS feed of the UFO appearing was first posted on Ustream but was immediately deleted.
It is no longer appropriate to pretend that the truth is out there when there are accounts as compelling as these.
If seeing is not believing then what do we rely on, what we hear? If testimonies of astronauts are not credible then who else can we speak to that can give us a more critical view of the anomalous objects that are being reported?
Is this an indication of the weaponizing of space, or can we allow ourselves to speculate that maybe there are alien spacecraft after all and that if they ever come near our astronauts or even our space station that whatever is monitoring the event will suddenly be cut and that a public relations firm will then tell us what we didn’t see?
It is no more about belief or questioning belief in something like UFO’s. The word alone makes it sound like perhaps there is some sort of faith or religion involved. If the term “belief” or “believe” wasn’t part of the speak of those who promote the truth embargo then perhaps it would be easier to state that with much of the testimony, pictures, film and other proofs that there is reason to consider the possibility that UFO’s exist and that the extension of believing that extraterrestrials piloting them is a matter or belief without proof.
Now, the challenge is to be informed or uninformed about what truth is out there and who is pushing the accounts of the encounters.
Always remember when confronted by s skeptic or a debunker on the subjects of UFOs that it is not all that difficult to call upon the U.S. military and intelligence community to find many brilliant and dedicated professionals who not only are “believers”, but who have been briefed on the matter.
Astronauts, pilots, military personnel and others are now coming forward and giving the news now before an official disclosure is made by the United states Government, if it ever is made.
