During Surveyor V11's landing on the moon on January 7, 1968, the spacecrafts camera system picked two narrow laser beams that had been aimed towards it from two observatories in the U.S. The blue - green laser beams each contained only about 1 watt of power, but appeared on camera somewhat brighter than the brightest star, Sirius.

Santa Claus is the term used by NASA to indicate a sighting of a UFO by a space flight. Walter Schirra was the first to make use of the term Santa Claus during his Mercury 8 flight. His report was ignored by the public. James Lovell aboard the Apollo 8 command module announced, once he had returned from the dark side of the moon, "Please be informed that there is a Santa Claus." Many sensed a hidden meaning in the words despite it being Christmas Day 1968.

Maurice Chatelain
NASA space worker and former Chief of NASA Communications Systems.

Chatelain said, "It seems that all Apollo and Gemini missions were followed, both at a distance and sometimes quite closely by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin."

Chatelain was extremely disheartened when the moon projects ended abruptly after Apollo 17.
There has been much speculation that we have been warned off the moon and even from space!
Chatelain has written a book containing far reaching implications called "Our Ancestors Came From Space". He claims that NASA wanted to know if the moon was, in fact, hollow or artificial and that the hidden agenda behind the Apollo 13 mission was to detonate a nuclear bomb on the moon to determine its geographic infrastructure.

According to Chatelain, a UFO followed Apollo 13 to the moon and sabotaged it by literally causing the now famous malfunction before the astronauts could reach their destination. Could this have been an act of self defense by inhabitants of the moon? According to Daniel Ross, author of "UFO's and the Complete Evidence from Space", there are extraterrestrial living peacefully on the moon and want us off!

Chatelain has claimed that astronaut Neil Armstrong viewed two UFO's on the rim of a crater.

John Glenn
Documents released in late 2001 and compiled in 1961 revealed that at the height of the Cold War, the US military considered killing astronaut John Glenn in an attempt to promote a war with Cuba.

The documents prove that the Joint Chiefs of Staff considered killing Glenn, now a Republican Senator, during the first attempt to put an American into orbit.

Should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, they wrote, "the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that the fault lies with the communists in Cuba."

Other ideas included sparking a war between Cuba and another country and the US could intervene. Another was to direct flights over Cuba in the hope a plane would be shot down.

The possibility of using fake Russian aircraft to harass civilian airliners was also discussed.

Apollo 11
One account of how astronauts were muzzled came from ex NASA space program member Otto Binder, who accused his former employer of censoring transmissions from Apollo 11 and other missions by switching to frequencies unknown to the public. He claimed that unnamed ham radio enthusiasts monitored the Apollo 11 transmissions after the astronauts landed in the Sea of Tranquility and overheard one of them exclaim, "These babies are huge, sir....enormous...Oh, God, you wouldn't believe it! I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there.....lined up on the far side of the craters edge...they're on the moon watching us..."

Apollo 12
The most starling evidence that the moon was perhaps hollow, came on November 20 1969, when the Apollo 12 crew, after returning to their command ship, sent the lunar module ascent stage crashing down back on to the moon. This created an artificial earthquake. The crash site was 40 miles from where the astronauts had left their seismic devices. The ultra sensitive equipment recorded the moon ringing like a bell for more almost forty minutes. The vibration took almost eight minutes to reach a peak and then diminished in intensity.

Apollo 13
This ringing was repeated when the Apollo 13's third stage fell to the lunar surface, striking with the equivalent of eleven tons of TNT. According to NASA, this time the moon reacted like a gong. Although seismic equipment was 108 miles from the crash site, recordings showed reverberations lasted for three hours and twenty minutes and traveled to a depth of twenty-two to twenty-five miles. Subsequent studies of man-made crashes yielded similar results. After one impact the moon reverberated for four hours.

Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins

According to transcripts of the Apollo 11 mission, astronauts Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins told of an encounter with a large cylindrical UFO  even before they reached the moon's surface. Aldrin said, "The first unusual thing that we saw I guess was one day out or so. It had a sizeable dimension to it. Armstrong described the object as appearing as two rings, two connected rings. Collins also said it appeared to be a hollow cylinder that was tumbling. A theory that this was an afterburner from a previous rocket launch were dismissed by NASA.

Neil Armstrong
According to author Timothy Good, a friend of his apparently overheard Neil Armstrong speaking to a friend about why NASA had stopped its Lunar missions after 1972
. "It was incredible...the fact is we were warned off. There was never any question then of a space station or a moon city.....I can't go into details except to say that their ships were far superior to ours in size and technology- boy, they were big....and menacing."

As mentioned above, Nasa communications boss, Maurice Chatelain claimed that Armstrong had seen two UFO 's resting on a crater. "The encounter was common knowledge to NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now, Chatelain said. Soviet scientist Dr Vladmir Azahaza, a physics and mathematics professor, has stated: "Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large mysterios objects were watching them after having landed near the moon module, but his message was censored by NASA.

Armstrong reportedly claimed that the final Apollo missions were completed because "NASA was committed at the time and couldn't risk a panic on Earth."

Dr Edward Mitchell
Together with Gordon Cooper (re. below), Edward Mitchell, the Apollo 14 lunar module pilot and founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, broke ranks with those astronauts not willing to speak out about UFO's.

On July 19, 1992,
Mitchell appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and hinted that all information regarding UFO's has not been released, saying "I do not believe that there is a lot more known about extraterrestrial investigation than is known to the public right now (and) has been for a long time......It's a long, long story. It goes back to World War 2 when all of that happened, and is highly classified stuff."
On Dateline NBC in1996, Mitchell was even more candid. "I have no firsthand experience, but I have had the opportunity to meet with people from three countries who in the course of their official duties claim to have firsthand encounter experiences...with Extraterrestrials," he said. "From what I now understand and have experienced and seen the evidence for, I think the evidence is very strong, and large portions of it are classified." 

Donald (Deke) Slayton
The Mercury 7 astronaut, stated in an interview that he had seen a UFO in 1951
. Slayton was testing ap-51 fighter in Minneapolis when he spotted the object. "I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice bright afternoon," he stated. "It looked like a saucer, a disc. About the same time, I realized that it was going away from me - and there I was, running at about 300 miles an hour. I tracked it for a little while and then all of a sudden the darn thing just took off. It did a 45-degree turn a disappeared." Slayton made a report to the Intelligence department but nothing more was heard of it.

Gordon Cooper
Cooper, one of the famous Mercury 7 astronauts, had his own UFO experiences during the early 1950's. In 1951, while serving as a pilot with the air force in Germany, Cooper claims he chased groups of saucer shaped vehicles.
Cooper recalled that  groups of saucer-shaped vehicles had been sighted for days in a row over the base. He said that "we tried to get close to them but they were able to change direction faster than our fighter-jets."

On May 2 1957, at Edwards Air Force Base, Cooper was part of what has become a famous and much publicized encounter. He was project manager of the flight test centre and said of the incident;
"I had a crew that was filming an installation of a precision landing system out on the dry lake bed, and they were there with movies and stills and they filmed the whole installation, and they came running to me that this UFO, this little 'saucer' had come down right over them, put down three landing gear, and landed about fifty yards from them, and as they proceeded to go over and get a better shot of it, it lifted up, put the gear in, and disappeared at a rapid rate of speed....I had to look up the regulations on who I was to call to report this, which I did, and they ordered me to immediately have the film developed, but put it in a pouch and send it to them by the commanding General's plane to Washington, which I did. And that was the last that I ever heard of the film."

Although Cooper did not witness the sighting, he did study the film. 'It was a typically circular shaped UFO .Not many people saw it, because it took off at quite a sharp angle and just climbed out of sight.

Cooper was surprisingly selected as a Mercury astronaut only two years after reporting the UFO. Cooper was one of seven people chosen from five hundred military personnel who applied to fly aboard what was to be the first manned space flight. The crew of Project Mercury were hand picked during a series of grueling examinations but were beaten into space by the Russians and Yuri Gagarin on April 12 1961.

The Mercury program, primarily aimed at testing humans and their reactions to being in space sent several manned flights into the atmosphere.

Cooper was the man aboard the last Mercury launch in 1963. He actually fell asleep during the countdown but a successful take-off was to see Cooper orbit the earth for 24 hours. His capsule, the 'Faith 7', however experienced difficulties and on the 21st orbit its automatic flight system failed.

Cooper did what all test-pilots do during a crisis- kept his head and went to manual control. The pilot / astronaut flew his ship to line up for a text book re-entry.

Cooper returned to space in 1965 in Gemini 5.

Described as a laconic Oklahoman, Cooper retired as a Colonel from the USAF in 1970 to become an aviation consultant.

In 1978, during a meeting at the United Nations to discuss UFO's, a letter to Grenada's UN Ambassador from Cooper was read. Cooper stated: "I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets, which are obviously a little more advanced than our own. I feel that we need to have a top level, coordinated program to collect and analyse data about every encounter, anywhere on the earth and learn how to interface with the visitors in a friendly fashion."

In his letter Cooper stated that astronauts "are very reluctant to  even discuss UFO's due to the great number of people who have indiscriminately sold fake stories and forged documents abusing their names and reputations without hesitation. Those few astronauts who have continued to participate in the UFO field have had to do so very cautiously. There are several of us who do believe in UFO's and who have had occasion to see one on the ground from an aeroplane.

The Space Shuttle
The Shuttle has been the centre of UFO folklore since its first ventures into the atmosphere.

There is well documented footage of a dancing ball of light shooting over the shuttle's launch area just before the disastrous 1986 Challenger explosion and there are two pieces of video available on the net which show many disks maneuvering in the vicinity of the shuttle before they shoot off. The craft seem to be responding to what appears to be missile fire coming from Earth.

Sept 15, 1991: A camera on Space shuttle 'Discovery' was filming the curvature of the Earth during mission STS-48 and transmitting images to a NASA select cable network.

Donald Ratsch, a Maryland space researcher, managed to tape the NASA feed and was astounded to discover what appeared moving objects maneuvering some miles from the space shuttle.

Footage shows many objects cruising through space to the right of the shuttle. One object appears to exit the earth's atmosphere, then proceeded to fly parallel with the planet's curvature until a bright flash was recorded by the shuttle camera. At that moment, the object abruptly changed course by almost 120 degrees and accelerated into space. A second object that appeared stationary before the flash also accelerated in the same direction as the first one. What appears to be a surface-to-air missile is then seen rocketing toward the original position of the very lucky first object. Other objects can be seen moving in a variety of directions.

The shuttle at the time of filming was in the airspace of Australia's Pine Gap joint US tracking and intelligence installation.

Ratsches find soon made the rounds of the UFO community and soon a quality tape was obtained by NASA and analyzed. NASA claimed that the objects were ice particles reflecting sunlight. This came into serious question when Nebraska Physicist, Dr Jack Kasher, attempted to prove NASA's explanation to be correct. His extensive studies revealed that it would have been in fact impossible for the shuttle's camera's to record such particles. Kasher concluded that the objects were some sort of space craft.

Despite Kasher's finding's, NASA have stuck to the ice particle story.

Another explanation for the footage which has been thrown up is that the flash which is seen to the bottom right is actually the shuttles thrusters coming into operation. That's fine but why do the thrusters influence the objects and not the trajectory of the shuttle itself?. The curvature of the horizon does not change one iota.

Judge for yourself if you have seen the video or scroll down to download the footage.

The fact that the film was taken from a NASA craft  means its credibility can't be questioned.

After the footage was aired all transmissions from Discovery were stopped.

Brian O'Leary
S
cientist / Astronaut during the Apollo program and deputy team leader of the Mariner 10 Venus Mercury television science group.
O'Leary was a close friend of a fellow astronaut reputed to have experienced UFO's. On questioning his friend, O'Leary was met with an extremely evasive response, the man refusing to take the conversation any further.
O'Leary's expertise and interest in radio communications has often lead to his recounting of the story of a Ham Radio operator who reportedly picked up this transmission from a space shuttle flight in March 1989: "Houston, this is Discovery. We still have alien space craft under observance."

Space Shuttle Discovery, mission STS-48, September 15, 1991.

A UFO appears just above the Earth's atmosphere and does a sharp angle turn when something appears to be shooting at it. This clip is the most famous of all NASA UFO video and broke the story of what's going on with these NASA videos. This is a good one! NASA tried to say these are dust particle or waste particles.  After this video was captured, public transmissions during shuttle flights was terminated.

UFO footage from STS-48 mission again, taken aboard the  Space Shuttle Discovery in September 1991. A dramatic piece of shuttle footage. Several UFOs are seen moving about the atmosphere at great speed and what appears to be weapons fire, is seemingly directed toward  them. One even appears to be hit in some of the better generation video tapes of this event. Is this a secret Star Wars test?

Project Disclosure

August 30, 2001. Dr Stphen Greer, convener of the Project Disclosure campaign, presented some breaking news on the Art Bell show. It was announced that a very famous astronaut was considering coming forward with "considerable and irrefutable" evidence that NASA and a department of the US Government is involved with both living Aliens and their advanced technology. Greer said the astronaut was one who is known by all listeners to the Bell program.
