Can you cite the MET for this:
Another strange comment EM made while on the moon was something along the lines of;
EM to Shepard: Hmm..looks like we've had visitors again during the night...Shepard: Probably best not to talk about that..EM: I guess you're
Do you know if it was during one of the EVAs, or while they were onboard the LM in-between? I can scan through the transcripts, if the approximate
time is narrowed down.
I find, though, the term "night" a bit odd....unless it referred to their sleep interval, between EVAs? (Since, of course, the Sun never "set" during
their stay on the surface).
BTW, tooka stroll thru the transcript for their egress and start of EVA-2 (figured if EM made that comment, would be there??) Here, didn't find it,
with aquick scan: On the Way to Cone Ridge: Geology Station A
But, there is this humorous fore
shadowing (pun!) reference (not aliens, sorry....but famous, nonetheless):
131:20:22 Mitchell: Well, it's nice to be out in the sunny day again.
131:20:25 Shepard: (As Ed jumps off the bottom rung) Yeah, it's a beautiful day here in Fra Mauro Base.
131:20:29 Haise: Sun ought to be a little higher today.
[It has been about 16 hours since the start of the first EVA and the Sun is now about 8 degrees higher in the sky.]
131:20:40 Mitchell: Beautiful day for a game of golf. (Pause) Okay. (Long Pause as Ed reads his checklist)
[Jones - "And you were in on the golf conspiracy?"]
[Mitchell - "Yeah. And that's the reference."]
