Did A UFO Follow Neil Armstrong And The Apollo 11 Crew?
With the loss of an American Hero, Neil Armstrong, a lot of new stories are being released about the Apollo 11 mission. Of course everyone will always remember Apollo 11 for the first man to walk on the moon, but will it be remembered for UFO reports?A statement on a documentary on the Apollo 11 Moon missions has broken a long silence by United States Astronauts on the reporting of UFOs. Buzz Aldrin is stated without reservation that the crew of Apollo 11 saw a UFO that paced them for a time during their journey to the Moon.
“Now, obviously, the three of us were not going to blurt out, 'Hey Houston we got something moving along side of us and we don't know what it is, you know, can you tell us what it is?' said Buzz Aldrin, “We weren't about to do that, cause we know that those transmissions would be heard by all sorts of people and who knows what somebody would have demanded that we turn back because of Aliens or whatever the reason is, so we didn't do that but we did decide we'd just cautiously ask Houston where, how far away was the S-IVB?”
For those that don’t know much about rocket’s The Saturn V was NASA's rocket that launched the Apollo spacecraft to the moon. NASA launched 13 Saturn Vs from the Kennedy Space Center and to this day it remains the tallest, heaviest, and most powerful rocket ever brought to operational status. The Saturn V consisted of three stages: the S-IC first stage, S-II second stage and the S-IVB third stage, and along with that came an instrument unit. The S-IVB was the stage that Aldrin asked about. This stage of the rocket was used twice during a lunar mission: first in a 2.5 min burn for the orbit insertion after second stage cutoff, and later for the trans-lunar injection (TLI) burn, lasting about 6 min.
Now that we’ve filled your head with science mumbo jumbo let’s talk UFO’s. Here’s what Aldrin had to say back after Houston responded about the S-IVB location:
“When they came back and said something like it was 6,000 miles away because of the maneuver, so we really didn't think we were looking at something that far away, so we decided that after a while of watching it, it was time to go to sleep and not to talk about it anymore until we came back and went through debriefing.”
To this day, whatever it was that the crew saw has never been positively identified or officially acknowledged.
