Major James McDivitt, born on June 10th, 1929, is not your typical conspiracy theorist. He’s worked on a variety of NASA projects, most notably the spectacular Gemini and Apollo flights.
However, in June 1965, he claimed to have come into contact with an unexplained flying object of some kind that approached him.
He was in the Gemini IV capsule when the UFO began pursuing them down as they passed over Hawaii.
He was no average crewmember; he was the commanding officer of Gemini 4, and he was the sole reason Edward H. White became the first American to walk in space.
He was also the commander of the Apollo 9 mission, which took place from 1969 to 1972. The expedition went haywire very early on, as the Gemini 4 mission barely lasted four days during the 66 orbits before having to return to Earth.
Their morale was already low because they were on the verge of breaking the Soviet Vostok 5 flight record, but they forgot about it when they saw the odd aircraft approach.
As you can see from the photos, it was afterwards dubbed the “tadpole” UFO, and it became the only piece of evidence from the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions for which NASA has given no answer, no snide response, just radio silence.
