The following are excerpts of conversations from Apollo Astronauts on the Moon to Mission Control – which show that the Astronauts came across some strange and hard-to-explain structures and unusual sightings of unidentified craft – while on the surface of the Moon.
These unusual findings, when added together with the anomalies which Richard Hoagland has shown to exist on Apollo Moon photographs, provide compelling evidence for an ongoing NASA coverup of what the Apollo Astronauts really discovered on the Moon from 1969 to 1972.
The following Apollo Astronaut conversations were mostly taken from the out-of-print book “Our Mysterious Spaceship Moon” by Don Wilson (Dell, 1975):
1) Apollo 16 Mission: April 16 – 27, 1972;
Charles Duke, Thomas Mattingly and John Young land in the Descartes highlands:
Duke: These devices are unbelievable. I’m not taking a gnomon up there. Young: O.K., but man, that’s going to be a steep bridge to climb.
Duke: You got – YOWEE! Man – John, I tell you this is some sight here. Tony, the blocks in Buster are covered – the bottom is covered with blocks, five meters across. Besides the blocks seem to be in a preferred orientation, northeast to southwest. They go all the way up the wall on those two sides and on the other side you can only barely see the out-cropping at about 5 percent. Ninety percent of the bottom is covered with blocks that are 50 centimeters and larger.
Capcom: Good show. Sounds like a secondary …
Duke: Right out here … the blue one that I described from the lunar module window is colored because it is glass coated, but underneath the glass it is crystalline … the same texture as the Genesis Rock … Dead on my mark.
Young: Mark. It’s open.
Duke: I can’t believe it!
Young: And I put that beauty in dry!
Capcom: Dover. Dover. We’ll start EVA-2 immediately.
Duke: You’d better send a couple more guys up here. They’ll have to try (garble).
Capcom: Sounds familiar.
Duke: Boy, I tell you, these EMUs and PLSSs are really super- fantastic!
It is obvious that the astronauts are talking in code – meant to disguise what they are referring to. The big question is why the excited cries? Can this be *merely* due to the collecting of Moon rocks, as they would have us believe? Or did they find something much more substantial, which was not meant for public knowledge?
1) Is there evidence that these conversations took place? 2) If so, what do all these code words mean according to NASA? “ET”, for example, might refer to an “External Tank”, not an ExtraTerrestrial alien.
2) Apollo 16: Describing Domes and Tunnels on the Moon:
Duke: We felt it under our feet. It’s a soft spot. Firmer. Where we stand, I tell you one thing. If this place had air, it’d sure be beautiful. It’s beautiful with or without air. The scenery up on top of Stone Mountain, you’d have to be there to see this to believe it – those domes are incredible! Mission Control: O.K., could you take a look at that smokey area there and see what you can see on the face?
Duke: Beyond the domes, the structure goes almost into the ravine that I described and one goes to the top. In the northeast wall of the ravine you can’t see the delineation. To the northeast there are tunnels, to the north they are dipping east to about 30 degrees.
3) Apollo 17: Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans, and Harrison Schmidt; Landed in the Taurus-Littrow Valley; Dec 7 – 19, 1972.
Check out the following weird conversation that took place:
Mission Control: Go ahead, Ron Evans: O.K., Robert, I guess the big thing I want to report from the back side is that I took another look at the – the – cloverleaf in Aitken with the binocs. And that southern dome (garble) to the east.
Mission Control: We copy that, Ron. Is there any difference in the color of the dome and the Mare Aitken there?
Evans: Yes there is… That Condor, Condorsey, or Condorecet or whatever you want to call it there. Condorecet Hotel is the one that has got the diamond-shaped fill down in the uh – floor.
Mission Control: Robert. Understand. Condorcet Hotel.
Evans: Condor. Condorset. Alpha. They’ve either caught a landslide on it or it’s got a – and it doesn’t look like (garble) in the other side of the wall in the northwest side.
Mission Control: O.K., we copy that Northwest wall of Condorcet A.
Evans: The area is oval or elliptical in shape. Of course, the ellipse is toward the top.
Again we have another example of code being used to disguise what has been found. For example, “Condorset Hotel”. Why the codes, if there are no secrets being discussed. Why not explain to the American people openly what is going on? After all, they have paid for the mission.Wilson says in his book (p. 139): “Although NASA has always held that the findings of lunar and space expeditions have never been held secret, it is interesting to note that Dr. Farouk El Baz, one of NASA’s foremost scientists, does admit ‘not every discovery has been announced’.”
4). Another strange Apollo 16 “ground-to-air” conversation:
Capcom: What about the albedo change in the subsurface soil? Of course you saw it first at Flagg and were probably more excited about it there. Was there any difference in it there – and Buster and Alsep and LM? Duke: No. Around the Alsep it was just in spots. At Plum it seemed to be everywhere. My predominant impression was that the white albedo was (garble) than the fine cover on top.
Capcom: O.K. Just a question for you, John. When you got halfway, or even thought it was halfway, we understand you looped around south, is that right?
Young: That is affirm. We came upon – Barbara.
Wilson writes (p.140): “Joseph H. Goodavage, whom included this conversation in a Saga magazine article, comments: “Barbara? That really needs some explanation, so I made an appointment with NASA geologist Farouk El Baz at National Aeronautics and Space Museum. Here’s how part of our conversation went:
Saga: What do you suppose Young meant when he said they came upon “Barbara”?El Baz: I can’t really say. Code perhaps …
Saga: But Barbara is an odd name for something on the Moon, isn’t it?
El Baz: Yes, an enigma. As I suggested, perhaps a code, but I don’t really know.”
5) Apollo 17 conversation: They find something startling, and are ordered to immediately switch to code:
DMP (lunar module pilot): What are you learning? Capcom: Hot spots on the Moon, Jack?
DMP: Where are your big anomalies? Can you summarize them quickly?
Capcom: Jack, we’ll get that for you on the next pass.
CMP (command module pilot): Hey, I can see a bright spot down there on the landing site where they might have blown off some of that halo stuff.
Capcom: Roger. Interesting. Very – go to KILO. KILO.
CMP: Hey, it’s gray now and the number one extends.
Capcom: Roger. We got it. And we copy that it’s all on the way down there. Go to KILO. KILO on that.
CMP: Mode is going to HM. Recorder if off. Lose a little communication there, huh? Okay, there’s bravo. Bravo, select OMNI. Hey, you know you’ll never believe it. I’m right over the edge of Orientale. I just looked down and saw the light flash again.
Capcom: Roger. Understand.
CMP: Right at the end of the rille.
Capcom: Any chances of – ?
CMP: That’s on the east of Orientale.
Capcom: You don’t suppose it could be Vostok? (a Russian probe).
Wilson writes (p. 141): “The Vostok flights took place in the early sixties and were *strictly Earth orbiters*. They never reached the Moon!”
6) Apollo 16: Another strange conversation:
Wilson writes (p. 141): “While on the Moon, did any of our astronauts see any indication of alien handiwork, such as strange constructions, disturbances or the like? Consider this strange Apollo 16 conversation:”
Orion: Orion has landed. I can’t see how fat the (garble) … this is a blocked field we’re in from the south ray – tremendous difference in the albedo. I just get the feeling that these rocks may have come from somewhere else. Everywhere we saw the ground, which is about the whole sunlit side, you had the same delineation the Apollo 15 photography showed on Hadley, Delta and Radley Mountains … Capcom: O.K. Go ahead.
Orion: I’m looking out here at Stone Mountain and it’s got – it looks like somebody has been out there plowing across the side of it. The beaches – the benches – look like one sort of terrace after another, right up the side. They sort of follow the contour of it right around.
Capcom: Any difference in the terraces?
Orion: No, Tony. Not that I could tell form here. These terraces could be raised but of (garble) or something like that …
Casper: (Mattingly in lunar orbit overhead): Another strange sight over here. It looks – a flashing light – I think it’s Annbell. Another crater here looks as though it’s flooded except that this same material seems to run up on the outside. You can see a definite patch of this stuff that’s run down inside. And that material lays or has been structured on top of it, but it lays on top of things that are outside and higher. It’s a very strange operation.
Wilson writes (p.142): “And we might add that this is a very strange conversation. What are the real meanings of such terms used here as structure, blocked field, beaches, benches, terraces and the like? NASA claims that they are just metaphoric terms to describe unusual natural formations.”
7) Strange Apollo 17 conversation about “Watermarks” on the Moon:
Capcom: Roger, America, we’re tracking you on the map here, watching it. LMP: O.K. Al Buruni has got variations on its floor. Variations in the lights and its albedo. It almost looks like a pattern as if the water were flowing up on a beach. Not in great areas, but in small areas around the southern side, and the part that looks like the water-washing pattern is a much lighter albedo, although I cannot see any real source of it. The texture, however, looks the same.
Capcom: America, Houston. We’d like you to hold off switching to OMNI Charlie until we can cue you on that.
LMP: Was there any indication on the seismometers on the impact about the time I saw a bright flash on the surface?
Capcom: Stand by. We’ll check on that, Jack.
LMP: A UFO perhaps, don’t worry about it. I thought somebody was looking at it. It could have been one of the other flashes of light.
Capcom: Roger. We copies the time and …
LMP: I have the place marked.
Capcom: Pass it on to the back room. LMP: O.K. I’ve marked it on the map, too.
Capcom: Jack, just some words from the back room for you. There may have been an impact at the time you called, but the Moon is still ringing from the impact of the S-IVB impact. So it would mask any other impact. So they may be able to strip it out at another time, but right now they don’t see anything at the time you called.
LMP: Just my luck. Just looking at the southern edge of Grimaldi, Bob, and – that Graben is pre-Mare. Pre-Mare!
Capcom: O.K., I copy on that, Jack. And as long as we’re talking about Grimaldi we’d like to have you brief Ron exactly on the location of that flashing light you saw … We’ll probably ask him to take a picture of it. Maybe during one of his solo periods. Notice that the Capcom reiterates that it was a *flashing* light. It was therefore *no* meteor impact that they were witnessing. Notice also that the Lunar Command Pilot specifically mentions the word “UFO”.
Wilson writes (p. 60): “This last conversation makes it obvious that both our astronauts and NASA do not take these sightings of light or UFOs lightly. Maps were marked and photographs were taken at the sites of these occurrences.”
8) Apollo 17: “Watermark” conversation continued:
While the Apollo 17 astronauts were discussing the “Watermarks”, the sighting of the UFO occurred. The conversation them returns to the Watermarks.
DMP: O.K. 96:03. Now we’re getting some clear – looks like pretty clear high watermarks on this – CMP: There’s high watermarks all over the place there.
LMP: On the north part of Tranquillitatis. That’s Maraldi there, isn’t it? Are you sure we’re 13 miles up?
Capcom: You’re 14 to be exact, Ron.
LMP: I tell you there’s some mare, ride or scarps that are very, very sinuous – just passing one. They not only cross the low planar areas but go right up the side of a crater in one place and a hill in another. It looks very much like a constructional ridge – a mare-like ridge that is clearly *as constructional as I would want to see it*.”
9) Apollo 15: David Scott, Alfred Worden, James Irwin; went to the Appenine Mountains of the Moon, July 26 – Aug. 7, 1971. Conversation about discovering strange “tracks”:
Scott: Arrowhead really runs east to west. Mission Control: Roger, we copy.
Irwin: Tracks here as we go down slope.
MC: Just follow the tracks, huh?
Irwin: Right we’re (garble). We know that’s a fairly good run. We’re bearing 320, hitting range for 413 … I can’t get over those lineations, that layering on Mt. Hadley.
Scott: I can’t either. That’s really spectacular.
Irwin: They sure look beautiful.
Scott: Talk about organization!
Irwin: That’s the most *organized structure I’ve ever seen*!
Scott: It’s (garble) so uniform in width.
Irwin: Nothing we’ve seen before this has shown such uniform thickness from the top of the tracks to the bottom.
Wilson writes: (p. 145): “What are these tracks? Who made them? Where did they come from? Does NASA have an answer for the people?”
10) Another weird conversation about tracks. Made by Harrison Schmitt, a trained geologist and the only civilian ever to walk on the Moon (all the rest were military men, or as Hoagland would say – “good soldiers”, who did what they were told).
Schmidtt: I see tracks – running right up the wall of the crater. Mission Control (Gene Cernan): Your photopath runs directly between Pierce and Pease. Pierce Brava, go to Bravo, Whiskey, Whiskey, Romeo.
Wilson writes (p. 145): “If this is not code, what is it? And why switch to the use of strange meaningless “code” words if NASA was not trying to cover up something startling, something that needed to be hidden from the public? In fact, science writer Joseph Goodavage maintains that “whenever something was discovered, the astronauts and CAPCOM apparently switched to a prearranged code, sometimes even on an alternate publicly unmonitorable channel.NASA scientist Farouk El Baz admitted in a magazine interview that NASA did commit itself to a secretive search for various things on the Moon. ‘We’re looking for something – something …’ He admitted that ‘a huge bridge-like structure in Mare Crisium has been reported … That is all I can say about it.’ When asked if ‘that was a bridge – that you’ve actually found artificial structures or some kind of intelligently placed artifact?’ El Baz quickly denied it.
‘No. No. I am not admitting such a thing. But when you start to think about it, almost anything is possible. There are almost no limits [to] how you can interpret the many things astronomers have been observing and reporting for several centuries. Now the astronauts are seeing many anomalies close up’.”
11) Apollo 15: Astronaut sees white objects flying by:
Capcom: You talked about something mysterious … Orion: O.K., Gordy, when we pitched around, I’d like to tell you about something we saw around the LM (LEM or Lunar Excursion Module). When we were coming about 30 or 40 feet out, there were a lot of objects – white things – flying by. It looked as if they were being propelled or ejected, but I’m not convinced of that. Capcom: We copy that Charlie.
Wilson writes (p. 54): “What could these mysterious flying objects have been? … Can this be considered another UFO sighting? What did the astronaut mean when he reported that these peculiar ‘white things’ were *perhaps* ‘being propelled or ejected’? And by whom?”
12) Apollo 11: “I say that there were other spaceships!”
Apollo 11, with Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin Aldrin was the first Apollo flight to land on the Moon, on July 20, 1969. While Collins flew in orbit around the Moon in the command module, Armstrong and Aldrin descended in the lunar module, landing in the Sea of Tranquillity at 4:17 P.M.
According to hitherto un-confirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on 21 July 1969. I remember hearing one of the astronauts refer to a “light” in or on a crater during the television transmission, followed by a request from mission control for further information. Nothing more was heard.
The following astonishing conversation was picked up by ham radio operators that had their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA’s broadcasting outlets. At this time, the live television broadcast was interrupted for two minutes due to a supposed “overheated camera”, but the transmission below was received loud and clear by hundreds of ham radio operators:
According to Otto Binder, who was a member of the NASA space team, when the two moon-walkers, Aldrin and Armstrong were making their rounds some distance from the LEM, Armstrong clutched Aldrin’s arm excitedly and exclaimed:
Armstrong: What was it? What the hell was it? That’s all I want to know!”Mission Control: What’s there?… malfunction (garble) … Mission Control calling Apollo 11 …
Apollo 11: These babies were huge, sir!… Enormous!… Oh, God! You wouldn’t believe it! … I’m telling you there are other space-craft out there … lined up on the far side of the crater edge! … They’re on the Moon watching us! …
Wilson writes (p. 48): “Binder ends his report with this observation: ‘There has, understandably, been no confirmation of this incredible report by NASA or any authorities. WE cannot vouch for its authenticity, but if true, one can surmise that mission control went into a dither and then into a huddle, after which they sternly [ordered] the moonwalkers to ‘forget’ what they saw and carry on casually and calmly as if nothing had happened. After all, an estimated 600 million people around the world were hanging on every word spoken by the first two men to leave footprints on the Moon.”
The book “Celestial Raise” by Richard Watson and ASSK [P.O. Box 35 Mt. Shasta CA. 96067 (916)-926-2316); 1987; page 147-148] records the following (continuation?) of the above remarkable dialogue of Apollo 11, which was picked up by hundreds of ham radio operators in the USA:
“During the transmission of the Moon landing of Armstrong and Aldrin, who journeyed to the Moon in an American spaceship, two minutes of silence occurred in which the image and sound were interrupted. NASA insisted that this problem was the result of one of the television cameras which had overheated, thus interfering with the reception.
This unexpected problem surprised even the most qualified of viewers who were unable to explain how in such a costly project, one of the most essential elements could break down… Some time after the historic Moon landing, Christopher Craft, director of the base in Houston, made some surprising comments when he left NASA.
The contents of these comments, which is included in the conversations [below], has been corroborated by hundreds of amateur radio operators who had connected their stations to the same frequency through which the astronauts transmitted. During the two minute interruption – which was not as it seemed, NASA, Armstrong and Aldrin with Cape Kennedy, censored both image and sound. ‘I say that there were other spaceships.’
Here is reproduced completely the dialogue between the American astronauts and Control Center:
Armstrong & Aldrin: Those are giant things. No, no, no – this is not an optical illusion. No one is going to believe this! Houston (Christopher Craft): What … what … what? What the hell is happening? What’s wrong with you?
Armstrong & Aldrin: They’re here under the surface.
Houston: What’s there? (muffled noise) Emission interrupted; interference control calling ‘Apollo 11’.
Armstrong & Aldrin: We saw some visitors. They were here for a while, observing the instruments.
Houston: Repeat your last information!
Armstrong & Aldrin: I say that there were other spaceships. They’re lined up in the other side of the crater!
Houston: Repeat, repeat!
Armstrong & Aldrin: Let us sound this orbita … in 625 to 5 … Automatic relay connected … My hands are shaking so badly I can’t do anything. Film it? God, if these damned cameras have picked up anything – what then?
Houston: Have you picked up anything?
Armstrong & Aldrin: I didn’t have any film at hand. Three shots of the saucers or whatever they were that were ruining the film
Houston: Control, control here. Are you on your way? What is the uproar with the UFOs over?
Armstrong & Aldrin: They’ve landed here. There they are and they’re watching us.
Houston: The mirrors, the mirrors – have you set them up?
Armstrong & Aldrin: Yes, they’re in the right place. But whoever made those spaceships surely can come tomorrow and remove them. Over and out.
The following is from: http://www.holli.com/~boda/sightings.html
A certain professor, who wished to remain anonymous, was engaged in a discussion with Neil Armstrong during a NASA symposium.
Professor: What REALLY happened out there with Apollo 11? Armstrong: It was incredible, of course we had always known there was a possibility – the fact is, we were warned off! There was never any question then of a space station or a moon city.
Professor: How do you mean “warned off”?
Armstrong: I can’t go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology – Boy, were they big!…and menacing! No, there is no question of a space station.
Professor: But NASA had other missions after Apollo 11?
Armstrong: Naturally – NASA was committed at that time, and couldn’t risk panic on Earth. But it really was a quick scoop and back again.
According to a Dr. Vladimir Azhazha:”Neil Armstrong relayed the message to Mission Control that two large, mysterious objects were watching them after having landed near the Moon module (LEM). But this message was never heard by the public – because NASA censored it.”
According to a Dr. Aleksandr Kasantsev, Buzz Aldrin took color movie film of the UFOs from inside the module, and continued filming them after he and Armstrong went outside.
Armstrong confirmed that the story was true but refused to go into further detail, beyond admitting that the CIA was behind the cover-up.” – vj
