Dr. R. Leo Sprinkle, Ph.D., emeritus Professor of
Counseling Psychology at the University of Wyoming, and distinguished
40-year Dean of UFO/Star Visitor/experiencer research, and my
friend, sent the following report about Apollo XVI, whose commander
filmed a gigantic extraterrestrial spacecraft as Apollo XVI was
leaving the Moon, April 25, 1972. I am pleased to share this report,
which puts the lie to claims by Apollo program that its astronauts
never saw UFOs during their voyages to the Moon.
This report, "Video Analysis of an Anomalous Object
Filmed during Apollo 16", is found in the "Journal of Scientific
Exploration", (2003),Vol. 17, No. 3, pp. 409-433.
The article contains a still photo from the camera
footage showing the UFO near the Moon against the black backdrop of space.
In brief, this Report states that Apollo XVI commander,
astronaut John Young, filmed this saucer-shaped object moving in an
unusual trajectory above the Moon (NASA Film CL-862).
The diameter of this disc was 60-120 km, comparing it to
known craters of similar size. Thus, if we average the diameter
estimate to 90 kilomters, that would make the craft 55 miles wide!
Nakamura reports that the object "appears to be an
artificial structure consisting of a disc that has a prominent dome at
the center, ... suggest[ing] that the object is a very large
This raises important issues. Why has NASA not reported
this to the public in 1972, or indeed any other time, to and
including the present? Why have Apollo astronauts been ordered to keep
quiet about UFO encounters during Moon trips? Who says that the public
"does not have the right to know", or is "not ready to handle the
Another issue to raise during the American Presidential
Campaigns currently under way! Let's hold their feet to the fire.
Let those who would rule us know that we are more than
ready to know the truth.
