According to transcripts of the technical debriefing following the Apollo 11 mission, "astronauts Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins told of an encounter with a large cylindrical UFO even before reaching the Moon," U.S. investigative journalist and researcher Jim Marrs documents.
Jim Marrs further presents that Mr. Aldrin said, "The first unusual thing that we saw I guess was one day out or pretty close to the Moon. It had a sizable dimension to it".
Aldrin said the Apollo crew at first thought the object was the Saturn 4 booster rocket (S-IVB); but, he added, "We called the ground and were told the S-IVB was 6,000 miles away."
Mr. Aldrin described the UFO as a cylinder, while Armstrong said it was "really two rings. Two connected rings".
Collins also said it appeared to be a hollow, tumbling cylinder. He added, "It was a hollow cylinder. But then you could change the focus on the sextant and it would be replaced by this open-book shape. It was really weird."

But, in my opinion, it's a big deal even if it's not alien. It's something completely new in nature, with perhaps no Earthly counterpart. Science should be rushing to study it. But they choose to sit on their hands and tell us there's nothing out there, regardless of all the evidence to the contrary.
