As Man took his first steps into space, were rainbow-coloured alien craft watching our progress, silently?
That’s the conclusion drawn by UFO fans after strange groups of lights were seen in newly released NASA images of the Apollo 17 mission.
Others suggest it could be something far more boring - such as a distortion in the image, one of thousands released by NASA this week on Flickr.
Apollo 17 was the last time Man walked on the moon, in 1972 - the conclusion of America's Apollo space programme.
Alien hunter Scott Waring of the UFO blog UFO Sightings Daily is convinced this is ‘proof’ that alien life exists, though.
Waring says, ‘All evidence points to this being 100% real guys. Not doubts here.
‘In it is alien tech at its finest. Watching the Apollo 17 astronauts on the moon.
‘The colors of the craft are boggling to say the least, and beautiful. The three glowing engine areas are concurrent with what Bob Lazar says most alien small craft have.
‘Also the round aura the surrounds the craft is also what he says is caused by the propulsion systems of the craft.’
