Creepiest Things Astronauts Have Witnessed While In Space That Will Give You Chills

There’s nothing more unsettling than the unknown.

There’s a reason why everyone is so troubled with deep space. Arthur C Clarke once said “Two possibilities existeither we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.”

And with what Astronauts have witnessed while in space, maybe due to some space hallucination, or high, or maybe honest evidence, it seems that maybe, just maybe, we’re not alone.

Yang Liwei was the first Chinese astronaut, and in 2003, October 16th, he reported something ominous and terrifying. A strange banging. His exact words were, “someone knocking the body of the spaceship just as knocking an iron bucket with a wooden hammer… it neither came from outside nor inside the ship.”

Might I remind you that sound requires a medium to travel, and since space is a vacuum, a lot of people would have considered his claims as dubious. Except, the following Shenzhou 5 and Shenzhou 6 missions reported the same knocking.

Major General Vladimir Kovalyonok (Far right), saw something on May 5th, 1981 that was physically impossible. He described the events in a press conference.

“Many cosmonauts have seen phenomena which are far beyond the experiences of earthmen. For ten years I never spoke on such things. The encounter you ask me about happened on May 5, 1981, at about 6PM, during the Saljut Mission. At that time we were over the area of South Africa, moving towards the area of the Indian ocean. I just made some gymnastic exercises, when I saw in front of me, through a porthole, an object which I could not explain … I saw this object and then something happened that I could not explain, something impossible according to the laws of physics. The object had this shape, elliptical, and few with us. From a frontal view it looked like it would rotate in flight direction.

It only few straight, but then a kind of explosion happened, very beautiful to watch, of golden light. This was the first part. Then, one or two seconds later, a second explosion followed somewhere else and two spheres appeared, golden and very beautiful.

After this explosion, I just saw white smoke, then a cloud-like sphere. Before we entered the darkness, we flew through the terminator, the twilight zone between day and night. We flew eastwards, and when we entered the darkness of the Earth shadow, I could not see them any longer. The two spheres never returned.”

Two minutes of silence.

Retired Chief of NASA Communications Systems Maurice Chatelain wrote in his book, Our Cosmic Ancestors 1975, “Only moments before Armstrong stepped down the ladder to set foot on the Moon, two UFOs hovered overhead. Edwin Aldrin took several pictures of them. Some of these photographs have been published in the June 1975 issue of Modern People Magazine.”

Reportedly, the first two minutes of Armstrong stepping on the moon were silent, the transmission lost due to a random overheating problem. But, allegedly, the transmission was, “These babies were huge, sir! Enormous! Oh, god! You wouldn’t believe it! I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out here… Lined up on the far side of the crater’s edge! They’re on the moon watching us!”
