    Maj. Gordon Cooper Watched A Green Orb Approach Him Out Of The Darkness

    [ranking: 4]
    During Maj. Gordon Cooper's solo journey around Earth, he encountered more than just some space junk. Nearing the end of his 22-orbit trip around the planet, he suddenly noticed a green, glowing object approaching the Mercury capsule he was flying in. In fact, the rapid approach of the object was even picked up by the closest tracking station in Muchea, Australia.
    Cooper even went on to describe the incident to the United Nations: 
    I believe that these extraterrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets... Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs... I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes, flying in fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe.

    Samantha Cristoforetti Saw The ISS Glow Orange

    [ranking: 14]
    In 2014, European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti was on her way to the International Space Station for the first time when she saw the normally gray ISS was bathed orange light. It was the sun reflecting off the solar panels and onto the space station, something only a handful of astronauts had ever seen. Cristoforetti was taken aback by the beauty of what she was seeing. In a blog post, she wrote, "The enormous solar panels were inundated with a blaze of orange light, vivid, warm, almost alien."
    Conspiracy theorists hooked onto the words "almost alien." They began speculating that the solar panel reflection was a cover story and she had, in fact, seen a UFO. You can see the ISS change colors at around 11:34 in the video above.

    A Conspiracy Theorist Thinks Alan Bean Saw Glass Domes On The Moon

    A Conspiracy Theorist Thinks Alan Bean Saw Glass Domes On The Moon

    [ranking: 9]
    Richard C. Hoagland, a proponent of alternate space theories, believed Alan Bean saw glass domes from a long-extinct alien civilization on the moon. In an interview, Bean described space as looking like "black, patent-leather shoes" from the surface of the moon. Hoagland maintained: "Space should be velvet-black. It should be inky-black. It should be infinity, unending, deep, endless black. It shouldn't be shiny."
    The only explanation for Bean's description, Hoagland concluded, was that he was seeing space through the reflection of a glass dome.

    Yang Liwei Heard A Mysterious Knock Outside His Ship

    Yang Liwei Heard A Mysterious Knock Outside His Ship

    [ranking: 1]
    In 2003, Yang Liwei became the first astronaut sent into space by the Chinese space program. He's said he heard "someone knocking the body of the spaceship just as knocking an iron bucket with a wooden hammer" on his maiden flight. He looked outside of the ship's porthole but was unable to find the source of the knocking. Considering space is a vacuum, it was even weirder that he heard a sound from outside the ship. 
    Liwei is not alone in this discovery, either; other Chinese astronauts heard the sound on missions in 2005 and 2008.

    John Glenn Saw Small Glowing Dots That Looked Like Fireflies

    John Glenn Saw Small Glowing Dots That Looked Like Fireflies

    [ranking: 13]
    John Glenn, who flew on the Friendship 7 spacecraft in February 1962, suddenly noticed something strange outside his window while in orbit. He immediately reported to NASA that he was watching what looked like a group of little glowing fireflies dancing outside his window. However, it would take a perplexed Glenn and worried NASA nearly a year to figure out what these little fireflies really were.
    At first, NASA was concerned that perhaps these glowing dots were flecks of metal coming off a malfunctioning piece of equipment. However, they later realized during another flight that these specks were actually frozen droplets of condensation that were shifting and cracking as the spaceship traveled.

    James McDivitt Saw Something He Couldn't Explain

    James McDivitt Saw Something He Couldn't Explain

    [ranking: 11]
    While on the Gemini 4 mission in 1965, astronaut James McDivitt thought he saw a UFO. In an interview with NASA, McDivitt explained:
    I looked outside, just glanced up, and there was something out there. It had a geometrical shape similar to a beer can or a pop can, and with a little thing like maybe like a pencil or something sticking out of it. That relative size, dimensionally. It was all white.
    The press got a hold of the story and ran with it, claiming McDivitt had seen a UFO. It wasn't until years later, after reviewing a photograph he had never seen before, that McDivitt realized what it was: a reflection of some bolts in the window glass.
    He said:
    I went back and then I saw what the thing was. And really what it was, was a reflection of the bolts in the windows. The windows were made up of about three or four or five panes of glass, so that if one got broken we still had some pressure integrity. And these little things, when the Sun shined on them right, they??d multiply the images off the different panes. And I??m quite sure that that??s what this thing was.
    Or maybe that's just what NASA told him to say.
