Observation of UFO
The media propagated the idea that Buzz Aldrin would have observed an UFO during the mission Apollo 11, on the basis of interview which it granted to Science Chanel. Buzz Aldrin specified thereafter that the idea that he would have seen an UFO comes from the assembly of its interview. Indeed, the part where he explains what it saw was cut: the conclusion of Buzz Aldrin and the crew of Apollo 11 was that what they observed was one of the panels resulting from the separation of a stage higher of the shuttle.
