In 1950, while flying in a fighter jet in Germany, Cooper claimed to have seen 100 UFOs. He said they were shaped like saucers and flew in formation around his plane. No one believed him at the time—and still, to this day, most people don’t.
But what if… he was right?
Lots of people out there think they’ve witnessed UFOs.
But when they make their claims, they’re often dismissed by disbelievers who just can’t believe in the existence of UFOs, intergalactic wars, overtaking all religious belief systems – and charging you to save your souls.
If Leroy Gordon Cooper says he saw 100 UFOs over Germany in the early 1950s, don’t dismiss it. We haven’t even invented flying cars in the 50s!
NASA Astronaut Leroy Gordon Cooper claimed to have witnessed a fleet of UFOs while flying in a fighter jet in Germany back in 1950
After retiring from NASA in 1970, Cooper devoted the rest of his career to researching unidentified flying objects—a pursuit that he had begun during his time at NASA. Before entering the space projects, Cooper held the belief that UFOs existed.
After seeing UFOs in Germany, he became a fervent advocate for the theory that an extraterrestrial civilization exists.
Frakes hosted The Paranormal Borderline, a UPN television show that explored strange and supernatural phenomena.
In May of 1996, Frakes featured an interview with veteran astronaut Gordon Cooper and reporter Yolanda Gaskins. They talked about the likelihood of aliens having visited earth previously.
In an interview, Cooper claimed that while stationed at Landstuhl Air Base in West Germany during the early 1950s—a period when Russian MiG-15 aircraft frequently overflew his base—he witnessed a UFO for the first time ever.
He once observed strange vehicles flying in formation far higher and faster than any airplane while he was flying at a height of 15,000 meters. The objects had metallic shells that were disc-shaped.
“They were flying quite high how high we couldn’t tell because we couldn’t get anywhere near their altitude but they were either very large craft way up or smaller crafts still well above what we can get.”
In 1957, while working as a test pilot at Edwards Air Force Base in California, Cooper spotted a flying saucer with a diameter of about 10 meters hovering nearby and landing on the dried lake.
“I had a camera crew filming the installation when they spotted a saucer. They filmed it as it flew overhead, then hovered, extended three legs as landing gear, and slowly came down to land on a dry lake bed,” Cooper continued.
“And they picked up their cameras and started over toward it filming as they went. And when they got in fairly close, it lifted up, put the gear back in the wheel, tipped up, and took off at a great rate of speed. and so they came into my office and told me what happened,” Cooper said.
After reporting the UFO sighting, Cooper was instructed by a senior officer to pack his film in an envelope and mail it to Washington.
He is unsure if anyone has ever seen the footage since, and he did not mention that fact when the movie returned from the lab. When everything was in order as described by the camera team who saw it first-hand, he watched the film himself. This time-round saucer reminded him of one witnessed back in 1951.
Roswell UFO Incident, New Mexico
Cooper supported the theory that an alien spacecraft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 and that the military had discovered numerous aliens there—supporting his claim with a fellow officer who was at Roswell during this time.
He was cautious about his words, but according to the Air Force’s cover story—which it shared with him—it definitely wasn’t a weather balloon. It was clear he knew that aliens had crash-landed there and recovered some of their bodies.
Cooper argued that extraterrestrials who visit Earth are greatly superior to us technologically.
The astronaut believed that governments were hiding information about extraterrestrial life and thought the UN should catalog every report of UFOs.
The Roswell UFO incident has been a topic of conversation for decades. In 2018, the US Air Force admitted that they had recovered a UFO in 1947. But what exactly happened?
Leroy Gordon Cooper’s statements on the Roswell UFO Incident complements the resurfaced letter in the February 2, 2022 publication by Lions Ground. It gives us an idea of what happened that day.
A military document has surfaced which contains details from someone who assisted in the cover-up of a UFO incident involving debris and non-human bodies found at Roswell.
The letter describes two different types of aliens: one was a humanoid and the other was an insectoid. The humanoids, who were about 5 feet tall with large heads and eyes, had skin colors ranging from dark brown to light greenish-brown.
They were bald but had hair on other parts of their bodies; they also had claws instead of toes.
Lions Ground contacted Friedman’s closest friend Kathleen Marden to verify the letter.
Leroy Gordon Cooper was a NASA astronaut aboard the Mercury-Atlas 9 space mission in 1963
Leroy Gordon Cooper was born on March 6, 1927, in Shawnee, Oklahoma. His father was a career military man, and his mother was a schoolteacher. When he was young, he dreamed of becoming a pilot—a dream which he realized when he enlisted in the Navy at age 21.
He served as a fighter pilot during World War II, and later joined the U.S. Air Force as a test pilot. In 1963, he made history by becoming the first American to orbit Earth in space aboard the Mercury-Atlas 9. He also flew on Gemini V with Charles “Pete” Conrad Jr., who later became commander of Apollo 12.
In 1969, Cooper was assigned to another mission: Project Apollo. His role in this project consisted of inspecting and testing equipment for NASA’s lunar landing program; however, it would not be until 1972 that he finally returned to space on board Skylab 3. This time around he spent one day, 10 hours, 19 minutes, and 49 seconds in space orbiting Earth.
On October 4, 2004, at the age of 77, Leroy Gordon Cooper died from heart failure in his home located in Ventura County.
