Has anyone in NASA or on a space mission ever seen a UFO in space, on the Moon or on Earth?  Why hasn’t anyone gone back to the Moon since the last Moon landing?

1). As far as we know, no astronaut has seen a “ufo” in space.  Not everything they saw was immediately identified, but on the other hand there is no evidence whatsoever of anyone seeing an alien spacecraft.

2). The political decision was made in the early 1970s to terminate the Apollo program and not to fund new lunar missions, and it was not until two years ago that another political decision was made for NASA to begin to prepare for human return to the Moon within the next 15 years.

    NLSI’s DREAM team modelers help search for Moon dust fountains In exploration, sometimes you find more than what you’re looking for, including things that shouldn’t be there. As the Apollo 17 astronauts orbited over the night side of the moon, with the sun just beneath the horizon right before orbital “sunrise,” Eugene Cernan prepared to make observations of sunlight scattered by the sun’s thin outer atmosphere and interplanetary dust from comets and collisions between asteroids.
