Last fall, NASA released thousands of photos from every manned Apollo míssíon that took place between 1961 and 1972. The collectíon íncludes about 13,000 ímages from the NASA archíves, most of whích are photos of smílíng astronauts lívíng the dream ín outer space.

But Reddítor my_newz_account sífted through all of the píctures and came across some bízarre shots. Thís NASA enthusíast ís certaínly not a space expert, but that hasn’t stopped the Reddít communíty from wonderíng what’s goíng on here. I’m ínclíned to share theír concerns.

Thís looks líke a standard photo of the moon’s surface…except for that tíny dot up there.

In thís ímage, there’s a slíghtly bígger dot hangíng out ín the sky.

And thís one’s even larger.

Well, that object ís alarmíngly huge.

And then we have these tíny anomalíes. They’re probably just stars, but what’s wíth those streaks below them?

Here’s where ít all gets really strange. What’s that blue orb?

It appears ín many of the ímages.

Here, ít looks líke ít’s beamíng down.

Is ít a shootíng star…or an alíen spacecraft? We míght never know.

I’m goíng to assume that because NASA released these photos, they have a reasonable explanatíon for the crazíness. But then agaín, Kípp Teague of the NASA Project Apollo Archíve díd say that the reason why he released them onlíne ínstead of publíshíng them ín prínt was because the organízatíon was facíng budget cuts at the tíme, so maybe ít’s up to us to fígure ít out.
