The luminous flying saucer of Apollo 12

From the very beginning of the Apollo program, there were rumors about possible contacts with ships and aliens during missions. Many ufologists, excited by this possibility, have brought themselves to such an extent to see things where they are not. There was confusion and misinterpretation of possible objects like UFOs: pieces of the capsule itself, rocket remnants and gases from the ship's own engines, etc.

The first case of a false UFO is an object clearly disc—shaped, quite luminous, apparently close to the capsule. Indeed, the image is really impressive and confusing.

The team I found and examined the entire sequence of images from the Apollo 9 mission, and found out that the object is actually part of the launch vehicle that launched the capsule into space. They provide the entire photographic sequence obtained at that time for comparison.

* In the image archive, the identification of the photo is carried out according to certain rules. For example, AS12-50-7327. AS12 identifies the mission during which the photo was taken. The number 50 indicates the reel of film on which the photograph is located. The last number, 7327, is the photo number.
