NASA Astronauts UFO Sighting


All information pertaining to aliens might be well-versed to a select public audience, but for non-believers, the history of NASA Astronauts who have sighted UFOs may come as news.  An anonymous site with domain,, documents several astronauts who have allegedly made claims to have encountered UFOs during their work.

Major Gordon Cooper is said to be one of the first Mercury astronauts and last American to fly in space single-handed.  Cooper relayed an important message to tracking station, Muchea, near Perth, Australia.  The astronaut reported a sighting of a green-hued glowing object approaching his capsule.  The alleged UFO was picked up on his radar, but Cooper was advised not to speak about the sighting.  He had attested to seeing a UFO nearly a decade prior to this flight.  He was piloting an F-86 Sabrejet over western Germany.  Cooper spoke to the United Nations, and on many other accounts, stating astronauts “live in secrecy because the US fears the public’s reaction.”

The green light comes up in a recent CNN report the second day of Jan. 2014.  Tom Watkins with CNN reports an elaborate crop circle was found on a farmer’s property in California, just two hours south of San Francisco. Green lights were seen and recorded by an onlooker. Many people speculate between aliens and hoax.  However, the crop imprint being circular is similar in description as most UFO reports maintain.

Other NASA astronauts listed on UFO sightings page include Donald Slayton who was also a Mercury astronaut.  He claimed to have seen a UFO during a flight in the P-51 fighter jet, 1951 Minneapolis.  The object appeared to him like a kite at first, but the object soon presented itself as a saucer-shaped aircraft. He went after the proclaimed UFO at 300 miles per hours until it vanished.

Major Robert White in 1962 also reported a UFO sighting.  White was test flying an X-15 which was also  flown by a Joseph A. Walker the same year.  Walker was a NASA pilot with the task of actually detecting UFOs.  He alleges filming many sightings, though the film was never released.

1973 Apollo 17 commander, Eugene Ceman, states in a Los Angeles Times article, thinking the UFOs were somebody else, from a “different civilization.”

Edward Higgins White (the first American to walk on the moon), and James McDivitt in 1965, are reported to have taken photographs of a metallic UFO with long arms stretching out from the body.  One might wonder if these were simply objects from other, more advanced countries.  However, more astronauts have been listed to further the claims of extraterrestrial life.  James Lovell and Frank Borman reported on base radio from outer space during their 1965, 14-day record-breaking flight, “Bogey at 10 o’clock high!”

1969 Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin report a mysterious experience on the moon.  A transcription of what claims was transmitted:

NASA: What’s there? Mission control calling Apollo 11.
Apollo 11: These “Babies” are huge, Sir! Enormous! Oh my God! You wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other space craft out there, lined up on the far side of the crater edge! They are on the moon watching us!”

Armstrong claimed there was a base on the moon, and he was warned to stay off the moon by the aliens. He would not go into further details indicating that the CIA was behind the cover up.  Maurice Chatelain 1979, former Chief of NASA Communications Systems, confirmed Armstrong did report seeing the UFOs.  Chatelain spoke about code name “Santa Claus” which began as a result of Walter Schirra on Mercury 8 who attributed the name to any UFO sighting.  James Lovell followed this usage and spoke the words for all the public to hear, “Please be informed that there is a Santa Claus.”

Scott Carpenter, an American astronaut, aquanaut, and test pilot was one of the original astronauts for NASA’s Project Mercury in 1959.  He allegedly stated, “At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone. There was a constant surveillance by UFOs.”

The reports on NASA astronauts UFO sightings do not end here.  This week of February is the 23rd annual International UFO Conference in Fountain Hills, Arizona. Researchers, a former NASA astrobiologist, and ordinary people looking to share their personal stories will be there.  The organizer, Maureen Elsberry, hopes to produce “digestible,” and scientific information to the general public about extraterrestrial life.

    Edward Higgins White (the first American to walk on the moon)…. Really How can anyone take you serious when you don’t even know what your talking about…. Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) was an (American astronaut) and (The first person to walk on the Moon).. If you are going to write Stories get your facts right. you just look stupid Lindsey Alexander.. did you get your learning from the Obama Common core where 2×4 = 12.. You don’t even know your history yet you make all these made up claims. Are UFO’s real yes. But that has nothing to do with your dumb claim that Edward Higgins White was the first American to walk on the money. I think you must have been watching to many Hollywood movies again.. o again Learn your facts before you say such stupid Comments.

    I have seen things that I do not understand but I know what I saw I ask has any one ever seen a ball of fire go over a house or look out side and see a curtain of stars hanging down I all of this was in Oklahoma when I was a kid.

  3. Steve February 26, 2014 at 8:09 am

    I know this is off base but I thought mabye somebody might have seen one of these before and could tell me what it was

    I’m just a country boy from West Virginia but in 2012 the week of thanksgiving , I was deer hunting in Boone county about noon one day I had quit hunting to go home for dinner, while driving out of the area I noticed a shiney round ball sitting on the skyline of the mountain the sky was beautiful blue against the trees ,I’ve never seen anything that looked like this before as I drove down this hollow the thing never moved, it just sat there looked like the prettiest chrome I’ve ever seen , as I got down to where there was houses people were standing around in most of the yards looking at it ,I asked a guy who was standing out by his fence if he knew what this thing was he said no he’d never seen it before, I would love to have had a camera it was very cool looking, anybody ever heard of something like this?

    Fear of the unknown seems to overcome commonsense

    If you have not seen a UFO it is easy to say there is no such thing no matter how many people say they have at night or for that matter during day light hours, far away or so close one could touch it… I think there is, NO !,. I know they are real !…

    Can anyone suggest a good UFO magazine that could be sent to my Kindle Fire…perhaps bi-monthly? I want recent news, not old news I already know. Any suggestions where I can go to get a 2014 subscription would be appreciated.

    Here’s another shill, except this one fully admits to it at the Citizen Hearing on Disclosure in Washington D.C. Col. Richard French admits it was his job to debunk UFOs. Jim Oberg is just another shill who trolls every NASA related UFO article on the internet.

  10. Ryan February 15, 2014 at 8:52 am

    Jim Oberg is a well known shill. One of many “debunkers” paid to have us believe these are just ice crystals and swamp gas.

  11. Kevin Gregg February 15, 2014 at 7:50 am

    Edwin Higgins White was NOT the first American to walk on the moon, as your article says. White was the first American to walk in space. Of course it was Neil Armstrong who first walked on the moon. It’s not good to goof up facts like that when you are discussing UFOs. You want readers to think you know what you are talking about.

    • Frank Stalter February 15, 2014 at 5:34 pm

      That’s a mistake you would want to go back and fix. Pretty bad.

  12. Frank Stalter February 15, 2014 at 6:32 am

    The Deke Slayton segment is accurate.

  13. Barry February 15, 2014 at 6:13 am

    After over 30 years, you are still acting as a shill for the “Anything, but aliens” crowd, dismissing valid evidence while pointing out the obvious flaws.

  14. Jon February 14, 2014 at 5:03 pm

    Edward Higgins White was the first person to perform a spacewalk. NOT the first American to walk on the Moon. That was Neil Armstrong (how you got that wrong is beyond me). White was killed in the Apollo 1 fire in 1967, 2 years prior to the Moon landings.

    • Simon Aquilina February 15, 2014 at 8:44 am

      sorry wrong
      Alexei Leonov was the FIRST known person to space walk,allegedly,there were 2 others prior,but this is controversial.

  15. Chris February 15, 2014 at 3:14 pm

    Jam it oberg.
    Your debunking stories are all about your ego.
    Get a real job.
