NASA Hacker Says He Found UFO Photograph

Posted on May 8, 2006

The BBC has an interesting interview with Gary McKinnon, a hacker accused of hacking into NASA and US military computer networks. In the interview he says he saw a photograph of an alien spacecraft while hacked into NASA. McKinnon also talks about UFOs being airbrushed out of satellite images.
SK: What did you find inside Nasa?

GM: One of these people was a Nasa photographic expert, and she said that in building eight of Johnson Space Centre they regularly airbrushed out images of UFOs from the high-resolution satellite imaging. What she said was there was there: there were folders called "filtered" and "unfiltered", "processed" and "raw", something like that.

I got one picture out of the folder, and bearing in mind this is a 56k dial-up, so a very slow internet connection, in dial-up days, using the remote control programme I turned the colour down to 4bit colour and the screen resolution really, really low, and even then the picture was still juddering as it came onto the screen.

But what came on to the screen was amazing. It was a culmination of all my efforts. It was a picture of something that definitely wasn't man-made.

It was above the Earth's hemisphere. It kind of looked like a satellite. It was cigar-shaped and had geodesic domes above, below, to the left, the right and both ends of it, and although it was a low-resolution picture it was very close up.
Unfortunately, McKinnon says he was unable to make a copy of any of the information or photographs he found. NASA also told the BBC that they "would ever manipulate images in order to deceive and said it had a policy of open and full disclosure, adding it had no direct evidence of extra-terrestrial life."
