(ORDO NEWS) — The last astronaut to walk on the moon, Gene Cernan, claimed to have seen incomprehensible “bright flashes” that “spun”. This happened in 1972 on the fourth day of the presence of astronauts on the moon.
NASA is currently about to send a new generation of astronauts to the Moon, but the last astronaut to visit the Earth‘s natural satellite has warned scientists about the strange phenomena he observed during his trip.
Gene Cernan claims to have seen a series of “bright flashes” on the Moon. The team of astronauts who went to the moon also included Jack Schmitt and Ronald Evans.
Despite the fact that they noticed something inexplicable, NASA is still going to return to the moon as part of the Artemis mission in pursuit of “scientific discoveries” and “economic benefits.”
Astronaut Jack Schmitt is confident that these flashes were not the result of the spacecraft’s engine. He said that at that moment, from his position, he saw how the engine was working.
Flight audio logs showed Cernan’s exact words, where the astronaut was heard saying, “I don’t know. They are similar in intensity and fairly regular in intensity, the bright and dim flashes they emit and they are far apart.”
Gene Cernan talked about a “bright flash” and a “spinning” object that he could not identify. Probably, experts say, he saw part of the rocket that was ejected and may have reflected sunlight in flight.
Those who hope to find extraterrestrial life forms will be disappointed, although there is still a small possibility of their presence on the Moon, Mars or another planet.
Is the moon inhabited?
Since ancient times, people have believed that the moon is inhabited. The first such mention of the “lunar inhabitants” dates back to 1064.
A little later, the French astronomer Louville and the famous Galileo observed strange flashes on the Earth’s natural satellite.
Astronomers of that time recorded changes in craters on the Moon, movements of luminous objects on its surface, and some strange flashes…
Some researchers believe that if there really is someone on the moon , then astronauts are unlikely to be allowed to land on the moon again.
Who knows, perhaps it was not without reason that we had to wait for a new generation of astronauts who have not yet encountered oddities on the Moon, and what experienced people say can easily be written off as their desire to embellish their journey.
