Much of this is due to interpretation of official transmissions...
I was recently researching this, expecting (or at least hoping) to find something pretty golden, but nope. I'll do a post soon on the findings...
The BEST tidbit is that there was an official transmission regarding a UFO sighting or a "Santa Claus" (one of many codenames for UFO's). However,
this just means there was something unidentified spotted, it doesn't necessarily mean an interplanetary spaceship.
There's another interpretation of one of the astronauts spotting something strange looking in a crater (later clarified), which some UFO nuts then
stretch to be a UFO parking lot....
That kind of thing, which is rampant with the Apollo landings and the UFO nuts.
The higher profile Apollo astronauts have all stated that the ideas of ruins on the moon, etc. are bogus. Maybe they are lying, maybe they aren't,
who knows? But, men of that generation and their standing were known for their honor and integrity, so I'd call it a longshot they're covering
something up there.
There are some really wacky claims regarding this, along with some interesting tidbits, so one really has to wade through this carefully...
If you want to read some interesting fiction on this though (and this prompted my research on it), look into the book "The Orion Protocol" by Gary
Tigerman. It's an excellent read.
and like the DaVinci Code, based loosely on facts and then written to sound very realistic.
