NASA scientist and astronaut saw five UFOs ‘like nothing we’ve ever seen

Many, if not most, UFO reports can be put down to members of the public making honest mistakes about perfectly ordinary aircraft or natural phenomena.

But when a spacecraft designer and an astronaut happen to see five unexplained lights in the sky it’s something worth investigating.

Dr Michael F Lembeck, who was on the team that designed NASA’s Galileo probe, is now Co-chair of the AIAA Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena Integration and Outreach Committee.

He told former US Navy pilot Ryan Graves that “we don't really know what we're dealing with,” when it comes to UAPs, and there “may be something ominous on the other side that we really should be addressing”.

Describing his own UFO experience, he explained: “About five or six years ago, I was outdoors in Houston on a rooftop patio looking north into downtown with a friend of mine from Boeing and an astronaut.

“And we were just having some conversations when four lights appeared over North Houston.

“They were sort of orangish like a sodium vapour colour. They flickered into existence …and then a fifth one appeared.

“And right after the fifth one appeared, the four that were there previously flickered back out…"

He says he suspected one of the most common causes of mistaken UFO sightings before ruling it out.

“Initially, I thought they were flares, but they weren't dropping at all," he said. "They maintained their altitude. But then that fifth one put the icing on the cake.

“It just went, whoosh, at a high rate of speed across the horizon, like nothing we had seen.

“The astronaut turned to me and said ‘well, that's interesting,’ in a very low-key manner. So I have no idea what that was. I don't think any of us did, but that certainly was intriguing.

Dr Lembeck also shared another sighting by a credible witness, dating right back to the mid-1950s.

He had lunch with Deke Slayton, one of the original “Mercury Seven” astronauts who had been selected from the best and brightest applicants across the US.

“He told us about a metallic object that he was chasing in an F-86,” Dr Lembeck said, “This is probably circa 1956 or so…

“Came up behind it and it matched pace and then just took off at a blinding speed. He said he had no idea what it was, but he knows it wasn't ours”.
