An Apollo 17 astronaut couldn’t hide his surprise when he saw a UFO on the Moon…
Apollo 17 (December 7-19, 1972) was the last mission of NASA’s Apollo program, the last time humans set foot on the Moon or traveled beyond low-Earth orbit.
Commander Gene Cernan and Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt walked on the Moon, while Command Module Pilot Ronald Evans orbited above.
Normally, NASA astronauts follow a script and know exactly what to say and when. However, this astronaut was too surprised by something he had never seen before. He forgets his lines and doesn’t follow the script anymore.
Instead, start a long, unplanned discussion and conversation. The astronaut is really amazed. Unlike his colleague, who seems to be in charge.
The astronaut asks what those objects were that were flying over his head. So he gets hilarious. Amazed, the second astronaut doesn’t know what to say either.
This was not planned and it was not in the script. However, he is aware of the fact that they are being watched by NASA officials.
After a brief period of silence, he says it was an explosion coming from the sphere-shaped disk of the high-gain antenna on the rover.
More objects start to fly and again we hear genuine excitement. Then the astronaut realizes that he had said something that he shouldn’t have said on camera.
So what do you think after seeing the images? Was it an antenna burst? Explosive Styrofoam? Or is it that someone is not telling us the truth and these two astronauts had a couple of “visits” that happened?
