Did Neil Armstrong know more about UFO sightings on the Moon than he told the public? Was it the reason he left NASA and became a very private citizen?
According to a YouTube conspiracy theorist video yes.
According to the YouTuber, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin saw two alien spacecraft, watching their every move, as they descended to the lunar surface on the first visit. Why wasn’t the public aware? After all, the landing was seen on TV by hundreds of millions around the world. Either it was equipment malfunction, alien interference which prevented some key transmissions from being heard, or plain old-fashioned government coverup.
But, supposedly, reports of the objects by the astronauts to Mission Control are part of a transcript published years later by some ham radio operators who were listening in at the time. In answer to a query by Mission Control, one of the astronauts is allegedly quoted as saying, “These babies are 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!”
NASA have answered conspiratorial queries asking if there were aliens on the moon in the past with an emphatic no.
It is not true. On the basics, twelve American Apollo astronauts landed on the Moon between 1969 and 1972, as described in several past answers (use the search engine to find them), bu they were not “missionaries”. There were no aliens on the Moon. Armstrong and other Apollo astronauts saw no evidence of aliens either on the near-side or the far-side of the Moon. You seem to be confusing science fiction with reality, or else believing false stories on the Internet. Believe me, reality is more interesting than this sort of fantasy, and in addition it is real.
In 1999 Armstrong himself said of the possibility alien life:
“We have no proof, But if we extrapolate, based on the best information we have available to us, we have to come to the conclusion that … other life probably exists out there and perhaps in many places.”
Armstrong, perhaps one of the few individuals whose name may survive history from the 20th to the 30th century, died earlier this week.
