Major Gordon Cooper was one of the original Mercury Astronauts, and the last man to fly in space alone. During his final, 22nd., orbit on May 15, 1963, He told the tracking station at Muchea, near Perth Australia, that he could see a glowing, greenish object ahead of him quickly approaching his capsule. The UFO was real and solid, because it was picked up by Muchea's tracking radar.
According to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said: For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public. Why? Because authority is afraid that people may think of God knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password still is: We have to avoid panic by all means.
Donald 'Deke' Slayton Sighting:
I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted this object, said 'Deke', describing an incident the Mercury Astronaut had in 1951. I was at about 10,000' on a nice, bright, sunny afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite is gonna fly that high. As I got closer it looked like a weather balloon, grey and about 3' in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing it didn't look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk. About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going away from me - and there I was, running at about 300 mph. I tracked it for a little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing just took off. It pulled about a 45° climbing turn and accelerated and just flat disappeared.
Gemini Astronauts James Lovell and Frank Borman saw a UFO during the second orbit of their 14 day flight in December 1965. When Borman reported seeing an unidentified spacecraft, Gemini Control told him that he was seeing the final stage of their own Titan booster rocket.
During James Lovell's flight on Gemini 7: Lovell: BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH. Capcom: This is Houston. Say again 7. Lovell: SAID WE HAVE A BOGEY AT 10 O'CLOCK HIGH. Capcom: Gemini 7, is that the booster or is that an actual sighting? Lovell: WE HAVE SEVERAL...ACTUAL SIGHTING. Capcom: ...Estimated distance or size? Lovell: WE ALSO HAVE THE BOOSTER IN SIGHT...

In June 1965, astronauts Ed White, first American to walk in space, and James McDivitt were passing over Hawaii in a Gemini spacecraft when they saw a weird looking metallic object. The UFO had long arms sticking out of it. McDivitt took pictures with a cine camera. Those pictures have never been released.
According to the NASA Astronaut Neil Armstrong, the Aliens have a base on the Moon and told us in no uncertain terms to get off and stay off the Moon. According to unconfirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the Moon in Apollo 11 on July 21, 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. According to a former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF receiving facilities that bypassed NASA's broadcasting outlets picked up the following exchange:
NASA: Whats there?
Mission Control calling Apollo 11...
Apollo11: These Babies are huge, Sir! Enormous!
OH MY GOD! You wouldn't believe it!
I'm telling you there are other spacecraft out there, Lined up on the far side of the crater edge!
They're on the Moon watching us!
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, by the Aliens. 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. But this message was never heard by the public because NASA censored it.
According to 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.
