HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Something was there, floating in space outside the window of Apollo 11, “out there close enough to be observed,” as Col. Buzz Aldrin would say years later.
The crew of Apollo 11, en route to the moon, encountered an unidentified flying object.
That doesn’t necessarily mean it was little green men in a space ship from another planet or the USS Enterprise or Mork soaring in from Ork.
But something was there.
By the purest definition of the words “unidentified flying object,” it’s exactly what it was.
Even now, it remains unidentified. . . .
