There have always been many theories on whether we are alone in this universe and whether the existence of alien life forms are true.
On the 7th of October this year, a video was posted on Youtube by a channel called the Paranormal Crucible, dedicated to prove the existence of extraterrestrials. The video features multiple clips and images of the moon that were taken during the moon landing in 1969, which was manned by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. All the images and footages show unidentified flying objects (UFO) subtly floating around near the moon itself. One image shows a strange long shape with light trailing behind it, resembling a sort of missile.
Though this video has over 112, 000 views, there are a lot of people who disagree with this conspiracy.
The description for the video says: ‘Bizarre image from the Apollo archives which appears to show a missile type UFO cruising across the moon. Could NASA be bombing alien installations on the lunar surface, possibly using high tech ships from the secret space program? Very odd object, not convinced it’s an alien craft, more likely something we launched, but at who and why?’
A number of people think of the video as a hoax and that the UFOs were edited or added with the help of Photoshop.
Skeptical youtube users such as Spectrumwiz commented: ‘rocket plumes do not happen in the vacuum of space’.
Some suggest it is merely a trick with the lighting and shadows, while other believes this is true and proves the existence of aliens or that NASA is hiding something.
So far, it is still not confirmed if extra terrestrials are indeed real beings. We might never know, but maybe someday we can find some solid evidence.
