NASA Astronaut shocked by UFO flying overhead


Description:

Two astronauts of Apollo 17 collect rock and soil samples and suddenly one of them gets really excited as he spots "something weird" flying over his head. You probably need to watch the video a couple times as it happens very fast!!! Normally NASA astronauts follow a "script" and they know exactly what and when to say. This astronaut however was too shocked by something he had never seen before. He forgets his "lines" and no longer follows the script. Instead a long and not planned discussion and conversation starts. The astronaut is truly amazed. Unlike his colleague, who seems to be in charge. The astronaut asks what these objects were that flew over his head. Than it becomes hilarious. Flabbergasted, the second astronaut does also not know what to say! This was not planned and not in the script. He is however aware of the fact that they are being watched by NASA officials. After a short period of silence he says that it was a blast coming from the dial shaped disc of the high gain antenna on the rover (vehicle). More objects start flying over and again we hear genuine excitement. Than the astronaut realizes that he had said something he should not have said in front of the cameras and NASA. He reluctantly accepts the vague explanation. He is really annoyed and you hear sarcasm and disbelief in the undertone of his voice. NASA tries to save this unpleasant situation and intervenes as CAPCOM confirms that it was a blast from the antenna and that it happened before. According to the astronaut who clearly is in charge, this blast from the antenna is just "routine". This is an interesting video. Styrofoam blowing up? This has happened before? When this really would be the case, would they not have taken countermeasures? Space programs are planned with utmost precision and they do not take any risks with equipment and astronauts. So what do you think after having seen the footage? Was it a blast from the antenna? Exploding styrofoam? Or is someone not telling us the truth and these two astronauts had a couple "visitors" passing by. Original video EVA-1 Close-out Journal Text: 123:27:46 http://www.hq.nasa.gov lsj 17/

    This is not so suprising. If UFOs are sighted all over the world why not in the Nevada desert?

    Good upload Will thanks.
    Do you think it's real?

    The way they speak seems strange to me...reminds of a fake mars landing or something...maybe you know what I know...can't remember exactly.

    Cheers!

    Styrofoam my arse. So it can fly in both directions at the same time. Take a look at 30 sec into the video and you will see what they are talking about. But you will also see something flying towards him as well as away from him. And if you follow this link you will see a picture of the high gain antenna. No Styrofoam present! Strange that don't you think?. http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/mt/assets/science/17_umbrella.jpg
