Buzz Aldrin was telling the truth when he said he saw a UFO on the way to the moon, reports claim.
Lie-detector tests based on voice patterns are said to have shown that claims by him and three other astronauts of unexplained sightings were genuine.
The tests were reportedly carried out by the Institute of BioAcoustic Biology in Albany, Ohio, and are said to use new technology which makes them more accurate than normal lie-detector tests, the Daily Star reports.
Aldrin, 88, was the second human to set foot on the moon after fellow Apollo 11 team member Neil Armstrong in 1969.
He is previously reported as claiming he saw an unidentified flying object on the way to the moon, saying: “There was something out there that was close enough to be observed, sort of L-shaped.”
The others who took part in the test were Al Worden, Edgar Mitchell and Gordon Cooper. Worden believes the human race descends from ancient aliens, while Mitchell and Cooper both claimed to have seen several UFOs.
Aldrin has on numerous occasions debunked claims that he actually saw evidence of aliens, and has previously said that although what he saw may be “unexplained” he didn’t think it was aliens.
