Massive cylinders flying over the moon – Apollo 9 mission picture – Official NASA Picture (Video)


On the 3rd of March 1969, Apollo 9 launched with a crucial mission: to fly the lunar module for the first time. The craft passed Nasa’s test procedures during the unmanned Apollo 5 mission. Apollo 9 was the first time a crew would be aboard the spacecraft. The crew orbited low Earth for 10 days testing the lunar module’s engines, docking maneuvers, navigation, as well as backpack life support systems. While the module performed well, the crew had to cancel a spacewalk after one of the astronauts fell ill during the flight. During their low Earth orbit, the crew took as many pictures as they could, for later research. On the 10th of March, an astronaut took this mysterious picture of the moon. It shows three massive cylinders flying between earth and the moon. These are clear real objects since they are in focus with the moon. The archive number of this NASA photograph is AS09-23-3500. Since the beginning of time, mankind has been staring at the moon. Maybe there’s a good reason…
