From the X File Dept: NASA Astronauts on UFOs

6a00d8341bf7f753ef0134844482d3970c-320wi "I've been asked about UFO's and I've said publicly I thought they were somebody else, some other civilization."

–Commander Eugene Cernan, Commanded the Apollo 17 Mission. (LA TIMES, 1973)

"At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs."

–NASA astronaut, Scott Carpenter

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 own 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…
