Buzz Aldrin Did Not Mention UFO Claim on Coast

Buzz Aldrin did not mention seeing unusual or unexplainedobjects on the Apollo 11 mission on Coast to Coast AM duringhis July 31st appearance. He has beenquoted in numerous British newspapers as stating on Britain'sChannel 5 on Monday, July 24 that he, Neil Armstrong andMichael Collins all saw something unknown shadowing Apollo11 on the way to the moon. Brtish media reports state thathe said, "There was something out there, close enough to be observed, and what could it be?" in a UK documentary called "Apollo 11, the Untold Story." He made no reference to this statement on Coast to Coast AM Monday night, but did mention a lawsuit he had pursued against Charles Berlitz for falsely claiming that he said he'd seen "littlegreen men."

In the documentary, "Apollo 11, the Untold Story," heallegedly says,"Now, obviously the three of us weren't going to blurt out, 'Hey, Houston, we've got something moving alongside of us and we don't know what it is,' you know? We weren't about to do that, because we knew that that those transmissions would be heard by all sorts of people and somebody might have demanded we turn back because of aliens or whatever the reason is."Unknowncountry is endeavoring to obtain a copy of the documentary, and will report further on this matter.

It has just been learned that all but two of the 700 boxes of Apollo 11 videos are mysteriously missing from the National Archives. The footage of the Apollo 11 mission was recorded on special 1-inch magnetic tape, and the only machines that can play it are at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, which is being closed in the fall of 2006.

Astronaut Gordon Cooper, who took part in the earlier Mercury and Gemini missions, had his first UFO sighting as an Air Force pilot. He later said that a UFO landed at Edwards Air Force Base. In 1985, Cooper testified at the UN, saying, "I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets, which obviously are a little more technically advanced than we are here on Earth. For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us." Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who was the 6th man to walk on the moon, has also said he believes in the existence of UFOs.
