First I would like to express my reverence and respect for those who are currently suffering from clinical psychosis and remain in a state of denial. I respect their position and their reluctance to believe we are being visited. Having said that I can not logically look at your credentials and measure them up against the credentials of the following members of humanity and choose to think we are not being visited by galactic neighbors.

This thread will probably be a long read. I will continue to research quotes from prominent and credible members of society, and add them to this thread. I am sure that some quotes may appear to be refutable, but I assure you I am not posting any quotes that I could not find some level of credibility to.

I will begin by presenting supporting links for the information I offer.

I will then simply list direct quotes of our society’s most credible witnesses, to include astronauts, and in later posts in this thread world leaders and other prominent people who held or hold positions of those whom we should safely assume would be “in the know”.

After the direct quotes, where I could, I offered a better context of the meaning behind the quotes.

I will eagerly await any quotes that ATS companions can submit. I will not debate the exact meaning of the words, the context of the statements, or what may or may not have been really meant. I am not one who makes a habit of speaking for other people.

Enjoy.

Summary / Quotes:

"I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted this object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright, sunny afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite is gonna fly that high."
As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon, gray and about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing it didn't look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk.
About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going away from me -- and there I was, running at about 300 miles per hour. I tracked it for a little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing just took off. It pulled about a 45 degree climbing turn and accelerated and just flat disappeared."

-- Donald Slayton, Mercury astronaut, 1951



"I have no idea what it could be. It was grayish in color and about thirty to forty feet away."

-- Major Robert White, July 17th, 1962. Reported during fifty-eight mile high flight of an X-15.
"There ARE things out there! There absolutely is!"
-- Major Robert White’s radio transmission according to a Time Magazine article.

On May 11, 1962 NASA pilot Joseph Walker said that one of his tasks was to detect UFOs during his X-15 flights. He had filmed five or six UFOs during his record breaking fifty-mile-high flight in April, 1962. It was the second time he had filmed UFOs in flight. During a lecture at the Second National Conference on the Peaceful Uses of Space Research in Seattle, Washington he said:


"I don't feel like speculating about them. All I know is what appeared on the film which was developed after the flight."

-- NASA Pilot Joseph A. Walker



"...I've been asked (about UFOs) and I've said publicly I thought they (UFOs) were somebody else, some other civilization."

-- Eugene Cernan, Commander of Apollo 17. Quote comes from a 1973 article in the Los Angeles Times.




"I think that Walter Schirra aboard Mercury 8 was the first of the astronauts to use the code name 'Santa Claus' to indicate the presence of flying saucers next to space capsules. However, his announcements were barely noticed by the general public.”

-- Pilot Walter Schirra



EXTERNAL SOURCE:
It was a little different when James Lovell on board the Apollo 8 command module came out from behind the moon and said for everybody to hear: 'PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.' Even though this happened on Christmas Day 1968, many people sensed a hidden meaning in those words.
[B] 'PLEASE BE INFORMED THAT THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS.'

-- Astronaut James Lovell, Apollo 8. December 25th, 1968.







Major Cooper also testified before the United Nations:


"I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets... Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs."

-- Major Gordon Cooper, astronaut, testifying under oath to the United Nations.



"I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes, flying in fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe."

-- Major Gordon Cooper, astronaut.

And according to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said:


"For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public.
Why? Because authority is afraid that people may think of God knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password still is: We have to avoid panic by all means."
"I was furthermore a witness to an extraordinary phenomenon, here on this planet Earth. It happened a few months ago in Florida. There I saw with my own eyes a defined area of ground being consumed by flames, with four indentions left by a flying object which had descended in the middle of a field. Beings had left the craft (there were other traces to prove this). They seemed to have studied topography, they had collected soil samples and, eventually, they returned to where they had come from, disappearing at enormous speed...I happen to know that authority did just about everything to keep this incident from the press and TV, in fear of a panicky reaction from the public."


-- Major Gordon Cooper, astronaut.







"I know other astronauts share my feelings," declared Cooper, 69, who went into space aboard a Mercury craft in 1963 and on a Gemini craft two years later.

-- Major Gordon Cooper, astronaut.





"And we know the government is sitting on hard evidence of UFOs!"

-- Major Gordon Cooper, astronaut.


Cooper said he first encountered UFOs as a military pilot in Germany in the early 1950s, when unidentified craft were spotted over an air base.




"We thought they could have been Russian ¬ we regularly had MiG-15s overflying our base. We scrambled our Sabre jets to intercept and got to our ceiling of 45,000 feet . . . and they were still way above us traveling faster than we were.”

"These vehicles were in formation like a fighter group, but they were metallic silver and saucer-shaped. Believe me, they weren't like any MiGs I'd seen before! They had to be UFOs."

-- Major Gordon Cooper.


In 1957, Cooper was one of an elite band of test pilots at Edwards Air Force Base in California, in charge of several advanced projects, including the installation of a precision landing system.



"I had a camera crew filming the installation when they spotted a saucer. They filmed it as it flew overhead, then hovered, extended three legs as landing gear, and slowly came down to land on a dry lake bed!

"These guys were all pro cameramen, so the picture quality was very good.

"The camera crew managed to get within 20 or 30 yards of it, filming all the time. It was a classic saucer, shiny silver and smooth, about 30 feet across. It was pretty clear it was an alien craft.

"As they approached closer it took off."

-- Major Gordon Cooper.


When his camera crew handed over the film, Cooper followed standard procedure and contacted Washington to report the UFO ¬ and "all heck broke loose," he said.



"After a while a high-ranking officer said when the film was developed I was to put it in a pouch and send it to Washington.”

"He didn't say anything about me not looking at the film. That's what I did when it came back from the lab ¬ and it was all there just like the camera crew reported."

-- Major Gordon Cooper.


When the Air Force later started Operation Blue Book to collate UFO evidence and reports, Cooper says he mentioned the film evidence.



"But the film was never found ¬ supposedly. Blue Book was strictly a cover-up anyway."

-- Major Gordon Cooper.


Cooper revealed he's convinced an alien craft crashed at Roswell, N. Mex., in 1947 and aliens were discovered in the wreckage.



"I had a good friend at Roswell, a fellow officer. He had to be careful about what he said. But it sure wasn't a weather balloon, like the Air Force cover story. He made it clear to me what crashed was a craft of alien origin, and members of the crew were recovered."

-- Major Gordon Cooper.


Why has the government kept its UFO secrets for so many years?

Why has the government kept its UFO secrets for so many years?



"It started in World War 2, when the government didn't want people to know about UFO reports in case they panicked," said Cooper. "They would have been fearful it was superior enemy technology that we had no defense against.”

"Then it got worse in the Cold War for the same reason.”

"So they told one untruth, they had to tell another to cover that one, then another, then another . . . it just snowballed.

"And right now I'm convinced a lot of very embarrassed government officials are sitting there in Washington trying to figure a way to bring the truth out. They know it's got to come out one day, and I'm sure it will.”


--Major Gordon Cooper.


"Although NASA has always held that the findings of lunar and space expeditions have never been held secret, it is interesting to note that Dr. Farouk El Baz, one of NASA's foremost scientists, does admit 'not every discovery has been announced'."



“Not every discovery has been announced.”

-- Dr. Farouk El Baz, NASA scientist.




O.K., Gordy, when we pitched around, I'd like to tell you about something we saw around the LM (LEM or Lunar Excursion Module). When we were coming about 30 or 40 feet out, there were a lot of objects - white things - flying by. It looked as if they were being propelled or ejected, but I'm not convinced of that. Capcom: We copy that Charlie.


-- Apollo 15 transmission,Orion




"I say that there were other spaceships!"

-- Apollo 11 transmission.

Apollo 11, with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin Aldrin was the first Apollo flight to land on the Moon, on July 20, 1969. While Collins flew in orbit around the Moon in the command module, Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the lunar module, landing in the Sea of Tranquillity at 4:17 P.M.
According to hitherto un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a "light" in or on a crater during the television transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further information. Nothing more was heard.
The following astonishing conversation was picked up by ham radio operators that had their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA's broadcasting outlets. At this time, the live television broadcast was interrupted for two minutes due to a supposed "overheated camera", but the transmission below was received loud and clear by hundreds of ham radio operators:
According to Otto Binder, who was a member of the NASA space team, when the two moon-walkers, Aldrin and Armstrong were making their rounds some distance from the LEM, Armstrong clutched Aldrin's arm excitedly and exclaimed:


Armstrong: What was it? What the hell was it? That's all I want to know!"
Mission Control: What's there?... malfunction (garble) ... Mission Control calling Apollo 11 ...
Apollo 11: These babies were huge, sir!... Enormous!... Oh, 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're on the Moon watching us! ...

-- Apollo 11 transmissions.

"During the transmission of the Moon landing of Armstrong and Aldrin, who journeyed to the Moon in an American spaceship, two minutes of silence occurred in which the image and sound were interrupted. NASA insisted that this problem was the result of one of the television cameras which had overheated, thus interfering with the reception.
This unexpected problem surprised even the most qualified of viewers who were unable to explain how in such a costly project, one of the most essential elements could break down... Some time after the historic Moon landing, Christopher Craft, director of the base in Houston, made some surprising comments when he left NASA.
The contents of these comments, which is included in the conversations [below], has been corroborated by hundreds of amateur radio operators who had connected their stations to the same frequency through which the astronauts transmitted. During the two minute interruption - which was not as it seemed, NASA, Armstrong and Aldrin with Cape Kennedy, censored both image and sound. 'I say that there were other spaceships.'
Here is reproduced completely the dialogue between the American astronauts and Control Center:


Armstrong & Aldrin: Those are giant things. No, no, no - this is not an optical illusion. No one is going to believe this!
Houston (Christopher Craft): What ... what ... what? What the hell is happening? What's wrong with you?
Armstrong & Aldrin: They're here under the surface.
Houston: What's there? (muffled noise) Emission interrupted; interference control calling 'Apollo 11'.
Armstrong & Aldrin: We saw some visitors. They were here for a while, observing the instruments.
Houston: Repeat your last information!
Armstrong & Aldrin: I say that there were other spaceships. They're lined up in the other side of the crater!
Houston: Repeat, repeat!
Armstrong & Aldrin: Let us sound this orbita ... in 625 to 5 ... Automatic relay connected ... My hands are shaking so badly I can't do anything. Film it? God, if these damned cameras have picked up anything - what then?
Houston: Have you picked up anything?
Armstrong & Aldrin: I didn't have any film at hand. Three shots of the saucers or whatever they were that were ruining the film
Houston: Control, control here. Are you on your way? What is the uproar with the UFOs over?
Armstrong & Aldrin: They've landed here. There they are and they're watching us.
Houston: The mirrors, the mirrors - have you set them up?
Armstrong & Aldrin: Yes, they're in the right place. But whoever made those spaceships surely can come tomorrow and remove them. Over and out.




"Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them after having landed near the Moon module (LEM). But this message was never heard by the public - because NASA censored it."
According to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went outside.
Armstrong confirmed that the story was true but refused to go into further detail, beyond admitting that the CIA was behind the cover-up."

-- Dr. Vladimir Azhazha.




'we still have the alien spacecraft under observation'

-- Transmission generated from Space Shuttle Discovery, 1989.

In his book "UFO's - Fact or Fiction" author Nigel Blundell has the following to say on the matter: " Aldrin and Armstrong are alleged to have seen some UFO's in a crater and Aldrin filmed them as Armstrong got out. His censored words are supposed to have run: 'These babies are huge sir.....enormous...I'm telling you there are other space craft out there!' Continues Blundell: " The story would be entirely laughable had it not come from former NASA officials Otto Binder and Maurice Chatelain, former boss of the organisations communications system.


EXTERNAL SOURCE:
" it was to avoid a confrontation with the Beings that the US government suspended its moon exploration programme. Astronomer George H Leonard of Rockville says he was told by a space scientist that 'top people' around the world have been briefed about the aliens'!
Perhaps the best documented astronaut sighting occurred aboard Gemini 7 in 1965. Astronaut Mc Divitt saw "a cylindrical object with an antenna-like extension". According to Mc Divitt's account of the incident the distance of the object, which was silvery in appearance, was impossible to gauge, but at least initially was more than just several miles distant. At that time it was in "free drifting flight" over the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly the craft appeared to change direction till it was on a collision course towards them. Hastily the astronauts began to consider preparations for avoiding action, but the craft ran past them without incident.

A further drama aboard Gemini 4 concerned a bright object going from "south to north", above the space craft. Later investigation deepened the mystery still further when it was confirmed there was no satellite traffic in the area at that time!

Yet an another strange sighting occurred aboard Gemini 7. Astronauts Borman and Lovell reported sighting a "bogey" at ten o'clock high. Exchanges with Mission Control confirmed this was not the rocket booster and subsequently a variety of small particles - never properly explained - were observed at a distance of 3 or 4 miles.
Each of the three above mentioned incidents was thoroughly investigated by the infamous Condon Inquiry. The conclusion was that the incidents were definitely "unexplained", and in the "highest category of credibility"!
Astronaut's Ed White and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii in a Gemini spacecraft in June 1965, when they saw a weird-looking metallic object.

The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt took pictures with a cine-camera. Those pictures have never been released.

In December 1965, Gemini astronauts James Lovell and Frank Borman also saw a UFO during their second orbit of their record-breaking 14 day flight. Borman reported that he saw an unidentified spacecraft some distance from their capsule. Gemini Control, at Cape Kennedy told him that he was seeing the final stage of their Titan booster rocket. Borman confirmed that he could see the booster rocket all right, but that he could also see something completely different.

During James Lovell's flight on Gemini 7:



Lovell: "BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH."

Capcom: This is Houston, "Say again 7."

Lovell: "SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH."

Capcom: Gemini 7, "Is that the booster or is that an actual sighting?"

Lovell: "WE HAVE SEVERAL...ACTUAL SIGHTING."

Capcom: ..."Estimated distance or size?"

Lovell: "WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT !"

I’m sure I’m not the only one eager for other ATS contributors to post quotes of credible sources. I know there are an abundant amount of credible people who have made exceptional statements. I will continue to post what I can dig up in my notes, and find through research.


I'd like to stress that my purpose of this thread is to compile the best quotes from the most credible sources.

Great thread! It amazes me how even with all these quotes people will still turn a blind eye to it. Information is power, so why not use this information!!!

I guess until an alien jumps out infront of them and tap's them on the shoulder they wont believe they exist? I'm not saying they do exist, but with hard evidence coming from people who have been into space and been to the moon. Then yes i'd have to say that they know what they have seen! If you're going to witness a ufo then it's more than likely going to happen while you are in space no?


It also explains why no other country has stepped foot onto the moon, maybe they're all scared of what they will find


Keep up the quotes

I do not turn a blind eye to this but I would like to be sure of the truth of those informations, not that I am saying they are all lies, but one thing is reading or earing something directly from a witness another thing is read or ear someone say that other person said this or that.

The information about the speech of Gordon Cooper on the UN, for example.
I have seen that described as "an address to a U.N. panel discussion on UFOs and ETs", as "testifying under oath to the United Nations" and as a "letter to Grenada's ambassador to the U.N.".

What of these 3 options is the true?



It also explains why no other country has stepped foot onto the moon, maybe they're all scared of what they will find



Japan as announced they want to have a manned lunar station by 2030, so I think that they do not know what is (supposedly) there or then they are not afraid of it.

SPACE SHUTTLE DISCOVERY 03/14/89 6:42 EST

"Uh Houston, this is Discovery. We still have the alien spacecraft under (observance)????" (note last word difficult to make out on tape).The previous statement was recorded by Baltimore resident Donald Ratsch (MUFON member) from a HAM radio rebroadcast between the space shuttle Discovery and Houston ground control. The HAM broadcast was direct from the shuttle without going through the delayed filter used on the official NASA public feed. The NASA select audio channel did not contain this one way broadcast from the shuttle to ground control. The HAM station making the rebroadcast was WA3NAN Goddard Amateur Radio Club in Greenbelt, MD transmitting on 147.450 MHZ. Preliminary analysis shows that the voice could be either Michael Coats (Commander) or John E. Blaha (pilot). The recording was sent for further expert voice analysis the results of which are unknown at this time to the author.

This stuff is amazing. These recordings from credible sources such as pilots and astronuats is some of the best proff we have about UFOs. I mean come on people... pilots? Astronuats? These people arent some stupid civilian looking up at the sky, these are very credible sources. That episode last night on the History channel is one of the most convincing episodes I have ever seen concerning UFOs. It is undenyable, the government is hiding something..they have to be.

While the evidence you provided is more than ample is still doesnt prove that
they exist.
It seems to me that a lot of ATS's are under the impression that because
astronauts and presidents talk about them its taken to be the absolute
gospel and if anyone doesnt believe they get shunned and ostricised
in their threads.

If the same people said santa is real you would probably believe that as well.
Just cos people are skeptical doesnt mean they need psychiatric help.

Whats the motto again? deny what?

I did a thread on the audio of that, have a listen and decide for yourself.

Not many people agreed with me.

If what these people said is true, why havent "The Disclosure Project" used these NASA astronauts as whistle blowers?
I think "some" of what they said has been taken out of context.

I've been doing some searching of other sites, and I am somewhat confused. For example, I found the following information at the following site:

ronrecord


when James Oberg contacted Chatelain's employers he learned that Chatelain was no longer employed by them when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. If he was no longer an employee of a NASA sub-contractor then he could not have been present in any so-called "secret room" where he could overhear the confidential communications of the astronauts on the lunar surface. He was a low-level engineer who worked for a NASA sub-contractor who built the Apollo communications systems. His status as the "head of communications" (as some UFOlogists have claimed), is entirely false


Otto Binder was a Nasa official? I thought he was a Marvel Comics guy who wrote UFO books? Is this a different Otto Binder? See the thing is we need information about who these people are. Maybe that should be the extension of this thread when you are out of quotes. Who are the people you are quoting?

For example, who are Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev and the other Russian doctor who I saw described on the web as a 'noted astrophysicist'? If we knew something about these people and their reptuation, these quotes would have more value.

So the big question is, how credible is some of this stuff?

I mean, quotes on tape from Carter and Cooper are great. But this other stuff, I wanna know who these people are, first, whether they said them, second, and what reptuation they have, third.

And that reminds me, this "he was a low level emplyee of a subcontractor" story keeps coming up again and again, with both Lazar and Chatelain, for example.

Two possibilities:
1) Low level technical people with big imaginations fabricate
2) Its a common coverup technique to acknowledge but downplay the role of a person

Hmmm......

Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding, Commander-in-Chief of RAF Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain:


More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any 'scientific' explanation... I am convinced that these objects do exist and that they are not manufactured by any nation on earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from some extraterrestrial source.

These quotes are difficult to refute in their entirety. Most people know who Neil Armstrong is. Some quotes are going to be from well known people, others not. The OP did mention this though...


Originally poseted by Esoteric Teacher
I will then simply list direct quotes of our society’s most credible witnesses, to include astronauts, and in later posts in this thread world leaders and other prominent people who held or hold positions of those whom we should safely assume would be “in the know”.

After the direct quotes, where I could, I offered a better context of the meaning behind the quotes.


Nevertheless, in the name of balance, I would like to offer a relevant quote by Mark Twain...



"The mere knowledge of a fact is pale; but when you come to realize your fact, it takes on color. It is all the difference between hearing of a man being stabbed to the heart, and seeing it done."


with this in mind, however compelling this is for some people, it can be easily dismissed by the skeptic because for some people, no proof will do it other than a first hand experience. (see the sig).

True Prote, some people require the tangible. When some hold up for comparison/contrast all they know about human nature (all they know of themselves) they do not see enough proof in the declared observances of others.

In 1979 Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. Chatelain believes that some UFOs may come from our own solar system -- specifically Titan.



"The encounter was common knowledge in NASA, but nobody has talked about it until now."

"...all Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin - flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence."


-- Maurice Chatelain, former Chief of NASA Communications Systems.
