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.
Typically, NASA astronauts follow a script and know exactly what to say and when. However, this astronaut was very surprised by something he had never seen before. He forgets his lines and no longer follows the script.
Instead, start a long, unplanned discussion and conversation. The astronaut is really surprised. Unlike his colleague, he seems to be in charge.
The astronaut asks what those objects were flying over his head. Then it gets hilarious. Amazed, the second astronaut doesn’t know what to say either.
This was unplanned and 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 rover’s (vehicle) high gain antenna.
More objects start flying and again we hear genuine emotion. Then the astronaut realizes he said something he shouldn’t have said in front of the cameras.
So, what do you think after seeing the photos? Was it an antenna explosion? explosive styrofoam? Or is it that someone is not telling us the truth and these two astronauts have had some “visitors” passing by?
