• On July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong became the first two men to walk on the lunar surface during NASA’s Apollo 11 mission. They and the Command Module pilot, Michael Collins, returned home to a hero’s welcome. But during the debrief, Buzz Aldrin spoke about ‘flashes of lights’ in the spacecraft’s cabin.
• During the Apollo 12 mission four months later, Alan Bean had a strange encounter while he was on the surface of the Moon. Said Bean, “I was on the backside of the Moon and looking down at a crater and I saw a flash… I thought ‘did I really see a flash?’ because there’s nothing going on down there.”
• Strange lights became a regular entry in Apollo mission logs. They appear more often on the way to the Moon rather than on the way back. Former NASA astronaut Dr Story Musgrave stated, “It’s like Fourth of July, the streak – they’re fireworks.” These strange occurrences went unsolved for years.
• The Science Channel’s show: “NASA’s Unexplained Files”, says that NASA scientists solved the anomaly by having astronauts wear night vision goggles. The flashes still occurred exactly as the astronauts describe them. “NASA’s official explanation (was) that the lights are ‘cosmic rays’ – high energy particles ripping through space near the speed of light, bombarding the astronauts and their craft.”
On July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong became the first two men to walk on the lunar surface during NASA’s Apollo 11 mission. Along with
Michael Collins – who orbited in the Command Module alone for 21 hours – the trio would mark a monumental moment in history by fulfilling John F. Kennedy’s goal of putting a man on the Moon by the end of the Sixties. But there was an event during that mission – and several more in the years that followed – that did not make the front-pages, and it involves a bizarre space anomaly spotted, the Science Channel’s ‘NASA’s Unexplained Files’ revealed.
The narrator said in 2014: “Astronauts often see things their instruments don’t pick up.
“The phenomenon caused a series of secret experiments, but could the explanation be out of this world?
“In 1969, the first men on the Moon returned to a hero’s welcome, but
during the debrief, Buzz Aldrin talks about flashes of lights in the spacecraft’s cabin.
“Four months later, during the Apollo 12 mission, Alan Bean experiences a different strange encounter.”
Apollo 12 astronaut Alan Bean also described his first-hand experience while he was on the Moon.
He said: “The first time I saw them I was on the backside of the Moon and looking down at a crater and I saw a flash.
“I thought ‘did I really see a flash?’ because there’s nothing going on down there.”
