What’s the buzz, Buzz? UFOs? Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon in 1969, at least that’s what the “government” is telling us. Sorry – we had to give a nod to hardcore conspiracy theorists. He also allegedly saw a UFO, and while the technical definition of an unidentified flying object encompasses any anomaly in the sky that cannot be immediately identified, alien enthusiasts have long clamored that Aldrin has, for decades, been alluding to the sighting of intelligent life.
But Yahoo! News is disappointing alien truth-seekers with their reveal of what Aldrin said on the sensitive topic. Says Yahoo!:
“Engineer, American astronaut, and the second person to walk on the moon during the Apollo 11 moon landing, Buzz Aldrin participated July 8 in a Reddit AMA for the promotion of the 45th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, happening on July 20. He touched on a sensitive topic: his apparent admission that he and other astronauts had seen a UFO during the Apollo 11 mission.”
As carried on Reddit, here is Buzz’s explanation as to what went down outside of the small portal window of the Apollo craft:
On Apollo 11 in route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world – it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the Lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And I feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don't know. So technically, the definition could be “unidentified.”
We well understood exactly what that was. And when we returned, we debriefed and explained exactly what we had observed. And I felt that this had been distributed to the outside world, the outside audience, and apparently it wasn't, and so many years later, I had the time in an interview to disclose these observations, on another country's television network. And the UFO people in the United States were very, very angry with me, that I had not given them the information. It was not an alien.
Extraordinary observations require extraordinary evidence. That's what Carl Sagan said. There may be aliens in our Milky Way galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost CERTAIN that there is life somewhere in space. It was not that remarkable, that special, that unusual, that life here on earth evolved gradually, slowly, to where we are today.
But the distances involved in where some evidence of life may be, they may be hundreds of light years away.
So his explanation gives a little bit to all – Denies the fact he saw aliens in 1969, but admits they are probably “out there” somewhere. Of course, the conspiracy nuts assembled en masse to the AMA, attacking Aldrin as a “coward” for not finally revealing the truth – either being a: He saw aliens or b: The entire moon landing was forged.
And now, back to the real world.
