NASA astronaut who walked on Moon says UFO crashed in Roswell and aliens WERE found

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


A NASA astronaut who once walked on the Moon says he STILL believes a UFO with aliens DID crash in a US desert before the government covered it up.



Former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell was one of six key players involved in the release of a new ‘smoking gun’ image said to show one of the aliens that died in the crash near Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947.

The picture is now widely believed to have been false or a hoax.

But despite the ‘Be Witness’ event last week not changing history in the quest for extra terrestrial life as it had suggested it would, Mr Mitchell remains adamant that more than one alien landed at Roswell nearly 70 years ago – and some of them were captured alive.

He said: “The truth about it is that it was real. I was there when the Roswell incident took place. I was on my way to college and had just graduated high school. 

“One day, it was in the Roswell Daily Record, which was a newspaper in Roswell, about an alien spacecraft that had crashed, and the next day that it had been denied by the Air Force, saying that it was a weather balloon. 

“I believed that and went off to college.

“Many years later, after I had been to the moon and came back, I went out to Roswell to give lectures, talk and meet people I knew since I was a kid. 

“Many of the people I knew, along with descendants of the people who had been involved in the Roswell incident, told me their stories.”

He said the descendants included the son of an undertaker who provided “coffins for the alien bodies” and the son of a sheriff who “kept traffic away from the crash site”.

Mr Mitchell was meant to attend the 6,000-audience conference in Mexico, but actually appeared via video link, saying at 84 he was too old to travel.

He spoke of why the authorities have kept “alien visitations above top secret” during an interview with HighCountry News ahead of another UFO conference this month.

Speaking of the now panned ‘alien’ image, Mr Mitchell added: “They’re certainly not human – looks like what the little greys look like.” 

Mr Mitchell also said that we don’t know what beings are in the Universe because our planet is like a grain of sand on a huge beach.

He was the sixth man to walk on the moon as part of the Apollo 14 mission in 1971.

Mr Mitchell added: “A family friend who was a major in the United States Air Force told me it was all real. 

“I got the stories from all of these various people into my head when I came back from the moon, and I then went to the Pentagon and told them my story about that and said, give me your opinion. 

“The admiral who I spoke to said, ‘I don’t know anything about it, but I’m going to find out.’ 

“He went out to New Mexico and checked all around, came back and told me, ‘Your stories are quite correct and all real.’”

Mr Mitchell also claimed the US government found dead and live aliens on board the crashed craft.

However, they covered up the Roswell incident because they did not know if the ‘visits’ were hostile and also did not want Soviet Russia discovering about it.

He told how governmental agencies did not know what to do with the alien crashed saucer and its “superior technology” for fear of it getting into Soviet hands.

He said: “The best course of action was to just lie about it, and keep it to themselves. They labeled it ‘above top-secret,’ and that created the long running iron curtain separating a secret group within the government, and the American public.”

He also claimed to have been made aware of “many UFO visits to Earth during his career with NASA” with each covered up.

The ageing former astronaut is scheduled to lecture on the subject at the Contact in the Desert, a UFO-themed conference at the Joshua Tree Retreat Centre, in Joshua Tree, California, at the end of the month.

      First he has to prove that he walked on the moon and the evidence says no, it was faked.
