A few days ago on the Science Channel, a program called "First on the Moon: The Untold Story" was aired. About 14:30
min/sec into the program, there was a 3.5 minute segment that described a UFO encounter that Apollo 11 experienced during its flight to the moon.
To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that Buzz Aldrin, an Apollo 11 astronaut, had ever publicly recounted any
UFO experience associated with the Apollo 11 moon mission. Also of interest, I wonder how the UFO footage that was supposedly
taken from a later Apollo mission obtained?
Narrator: But three days and 200,000 miles into the flight, Mission Control did miss the significance of a cryptic message from Apollo 11.
Apollo 11: 'Do you have any idea where the S-IVB is with respect to us?
Mission Control: 'Stand-by'
Narrator: The Crew required information on the current position of the S-IVB, the final stage of the rocket which had been
jettisoned away 2 days earlier. This short message hid an extraordinary turn of events: Apollo 11 wasn't alone in space.
Buzz Aldrin: There was something out there that, uh, was close enough to be observed and what could it be?
Narrator: Traveling along side of Apollo 11 was a mysterious object like this one (a ringed object at close range is shown),
filmed on a later mission. If it wasn't part of their own rocket, it could only be one thing, a UFO.
Aldrin: Mike (Collins) decided he thought he could see it in the telescope and he was able to do that and when it was in one
position, that had a series of ellipses, but when you made it real sharp it was sort of L shaped. That didn't tell us very
Dr. David Baker (Apollo 11 Senior Scientist): NASA knew very little about, um, the object reported by the Apollo 11 crew. It
was obviously an unidentified flying object, but such objects were not uncommon and the history of even earth orbit space
flights going back over the previous years indicated that several crews saw objects.
Narrator: Despite having a clear view of the UFO, the crew were wary of reporting it to Mission Control.
Aldrin: 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?'. 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?
Narrator: Unaware of the drama unfolding in space, Mission Control radioed the position back to Apollo 11.
Mission Control: 'Apollo 11, Houston. The S-IVB is about 6,000 nautical miles from you now, over.'
Aldrin: And a few moments later, why 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.
Narrator: To this day, whatever it was that the crew saw has never been positively identified or officially acknowledged.
Dr. David Baker: There were a lot of people within the program who went off later and became convinced that UFOs existed and
that lead to some concern on NASA's part where they got the agreement of the crew never to publicly talk about these things
for fear of ridicule.
Recently Buzz Aldrin announced on TV, that when Apollo 11 visited the Moon their capsule was accompanied by a UFO. According
to Apollo 11 transcripts of the technical debriefing following the mission, astronauts Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and
Michael Collins told of an encounter with a large cylindrical UFO even before reaching the moon. "We called the ground and
were told the S-IV Booster was 6,000 miles away." Aldrin described the UFO as a cylinder while Armstrong said it was
"...really two rings. Two connected rings.
" As they circled the moon, Armstrong saw a mysterious bright florescence light on the inner wall of the crater Aristarchus.
Christopher Kraft, who was director of the NASA tracking base in Houston during the Apollo Moon missions, revealed the
following conversation between Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Mission Control after he left NASA:
Apollo 11: "Those are giant things. No, no, no .... this is not an optical illusion. No one is going to believe this!"
Mission Control (Houston Center): "What...what...what? What the hell is happening? What's wrong with you?"
Apollo 11: "They're here under the surface."
Mission Control: "What's there? Emission interrupted...interference control calling Apollo II."
Apollo 11: "We saw some visitors. They were there for awhile, observing the instruments."
Mission Control: "Repeat your last information."
Apollo 11: "I say that there were other spaceships. They're lined up on the other side of the crater."
Mission Control: "Repeat...repeat!"
Apollo 11: "Let us sound this orbit a ..... In 625 to5...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?"
Mission Control: "Have you picked up anything?"
Apollo 11: "I didn't have any film at hand. Three shots of the saucers or whatever they were that were ruining the film."
Mission Control: "Control, control here. Are you on your way? Is the uproar with the UFOs over?
Apollo 11: "They've landed there. There they are and they are watching us."
Mission Control: "The mirrors, the mirrors...have you set them up?"
Apollo 11: "Yes, they're in the right place. But whoever made those space ships surely can come tomorrow and remove them.
Over and out." Thanks to www.ronrecord.com...

Great vid and great post, internos. Has some audio as well as footage.
However, the alien moon base called "Luna" was filmed by Apollo 11 and is classified top secret.
Wish I could see that
