Astronauts are some of the highest trained and most educated people on the planet, and potentially off-planet as well. Before candidates are selected they undergo a rigorous training regimen to test their intelligence, adaptability, physical condition, and endurance.

NASA and it’s international as well as commercial counterparts require excellence in these categories from their potential candidates to ensure their ability to complete the missions they are trained to perform, and ultimately for their survival in space. These admired men and women are held at the highest standards of integrity to protect themselves, their team, and the nearly 500 million dollars of equipment that they are piloting into space.

It’s because of these high standards the accounts of privileged UFO knowledge or personal sightings of unidentified craft from these highly trained individuals have added credibility. Their military and educational backgrounds provide first hand knowledge of craft and conventional flight maneuvers, while granting close proximity to informed personnel on UFO matters making astronauts some of the most exciting witnesses available for comment.

Here are a few examples of these extraordinary astronaut accounts:

Gordon Cooper

Astronauts and UFOs - Gordon Cooper

“I had some cameramen filming the installation of a precision landing facility at the edge of a dry lake, and a saucer flew over the top of them and put down three little gear and landed out on the dry lake bed. They picked up their cameras and went toward it, filming. It lifted off, retracted its gear and took off at a high rate of speed.

The Colonel told me when the film arrived to put it in a courier package to be sent back to Washington. I had a chance to hold it up to the window and look at the film, it was certainly good film, good close-up shots. Nothing like I’d ever seen. Double lenticular shape, didn’t have a coupe on it or anything.

At that point in time there was no doubt in my mind that this vehicle was made in some other place than here on Earth.”  -NASA Mercury Seven, & Gemini Astronaut,  M. Gordon Cooper. (1927-2004)¹

Brian O’Leary

Astronauts and UFOs - Brian Oleary



“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time. That their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroid’s, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, which seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon.” -NASA Astronaut and Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Dr. Brian O’Leary. (1947-2011) ²



Dr. Edgar Mitchell

Astronauts and UFOs - Edgar Mitchell


“Oh I know for sure that we’re not alone in the Universe. Now have we been able to identify for sure where the other planets are? No we have not. Certainly not in our Solar System. But they’ve identified quite a number of other planets now that very likely could be life bearing planets. And I’ve been very privileged enough to be in on the fact that we have been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomenon is real although it’s been covered up by governments for quite a long time.” – NASA Apollo 14 Astronaut, Dr. Edgar Mitchell. (1930-2016)³
