ASTRONAUT LG COOPER ON UFOS: ‘OUR GOVERNMENT IS LYING AND HIDING INFO’ (VIDEO)
Leroy Gordon Cooper, Jr. is an American aerospace engineer, test pilot, pilot in the United States Air Force, and the youngest of seven astronauts on Project Mercury, the first human space program of the United States.
Cooper learned to fly as a child, and after serving in the US Marine Corps during World War II, he was commissioned into the Air Force in 1949. After serving as a fighter pilot, in 1956 he qualified as a pilot- tester, and in 1959 he was selected as an astronaut.
Until his death, Leroy claimed (March 6, 1927 – October 4, 2004) that “the U.S. government is covering up information about UFOs.”
He points out that there are hundreds of reports made by his fellow pilots, many of them military jet pilots sent to respond to radar or visual sightings. In his memoirs, Cooper wrote that he saw “unexplained aircraft” several times during his career, and that hundreds of reports were made.
Cooper’s story proves once again that over the years pilots and astronauts have had UFO encounters and have reported them, but despite the US Congressional hearing on the so-called Tic Tac UFOs, they still cover it up because they don’t want to to announce the truth about the existence of aliens and UFOs.
The astronaut talks about the UFOs he witnessed and sends a letter to the UN about this phenomenon.
Cooper’s letter to the UN on UFOs:
“Ambassador Griffith, Mission of Grenada to the United Nations, 866 Second Avenue, Suite 502 New York, New York 10017
Dear Ambassador Griffith, I want to give you my views on our extraterrestrial visitors, popularly called “UFOs” and suggest what can be done to deal with them properly.
I believe that these alien machines and their crews are visiting Earth from other planets that are obviously more technologically advanced than we are. I feel that we must have a coordinated top level Program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over Earth regarding each type of encounter and determine how best to interact with these visitors in a friendly manner.
We must first show them that we have learned to solve our problems by peaceful means, not war, before we can be accepted as fully qualified universal team members. This acceptance would have enormous possibilities for the advancement of our world in all fields. Of course, the UN has a vested interest in dealing with this matter properly and expeditiously.
I should note that I am not an experienced professional UFO researcher. I have not yet had the privilege of flying a UFO, nor meeting the crew of one. I feel somewhat qualified to discuss them as I have been on the fringes of the vast areas they travel.
I also had the occasion in 1951 to have two days’ observation of many flights of them, of various sizes, flying in formation, usually from east to west over Europe. They were at a higher altitude than we could reach with our jet fighters of the time.
I would also like to point out that most astronauts are reluctant to discuss UFOs because of the large number of people who have indiscriminately peddled fake stories and fake documents, abusing their names and reputations without hesitation.
The few astronauts who continued to engage in the UFO field had to do so very cautiously. There are several of us who believe in UFOs, and who have had sightings of UFOs on the ground or from an airplane.
If the UN agrees to continue this Project and give it credibility, perhaps many more well-qualified people will agree to come forward and provide help and information.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
Yours faithfully, L. Gordon Cooper. Colonel, United States Air Force. Astronaut.’
Even before undergoing the life-changing experience of becoming the first person to sleep in space, he claimed to have seen UFOs fly over Germany in 1951.
Astronaut says he saw ‘flying saucers’ spying on a secret Air Force base where experimental US aircraft are tested.
In 1984, before the United Nations, he confirmed words from his letter and said:
“I believe that these alien spaceships and their crews are visiting Earth from other planets that are more technologically advanced than we are.
Perhaps we must first show them that we have learned how to solve our problems by peaceful means, not war, before we are accepted as fully qualified universal team members.
Their adoption will have enormous possibilities for the advancement of our world in all fields.”
