Former NASA expert claims he saw nine-foot alien on space shuttle during mission

The UFO conspiracy theorist who claims to have been NASA engineer for 35 years insists story of super-size humanoid making contact with colleagues is true.

A UFO conspiracy theorist who claims to be a NASA veteran has insisted he saw a nine-foot alien astronaut on the space shuttle.

Clark McClelland, who says he worked with NASA as an aerospace engineer for 35 years from 1958 to 1992, maintains the “truth” of his story currently doing the rounds on paranormal websites, radio stations and Youtube channels.

McClelland, who has been dismissed as delusional and never having worked for NASA by sceptics, claims to have observed an eight to nine-feet

McCelland gives a testimony of the “sighting” in a video on conspiracy website Paranormal Crucible which has produced mock-up images of the plus-size “entity” interacting with NASA astronauts in a bay of the shuttle as described by he described while he was allegedly monitoring it from the Kennedy Space Centre in Cape Canaveral, Florida.

He also claims to have seen on another occasion a UFO at the rear of the shuttle.

Detailing the experience on his website,, he claims that while monitoring an unspecified top secret mission from the space center’s launch control centre on a 27-inch video screen, he saw the “alien” standing upright on two legs in the space shuttle payload bay, interacting with the two tethered US astronauts and watched it for one minute and seven seconds.

Fellow UFO chasers have seized on his allegation as some of the “most conclusive” evidence for long-held theories that the US Government has made contact with alien life forms but is determined to keep it secret from the public at large.

Watch the video below:

Supporters of McClelland, who believe claims on his website he was involved in 800-plus NASA operations, including the Apollo missions, launching of the International Space Station and the space shuttle programme, believe what he says and that the US space agency has never refuted his story.

His website shows a picture labelled as him and Judy Resnick, the second ever US female astronaut who died in the 1986 Challenger space shuttle disaster alongside six others.

McClelland makes a series of shocking claims about aliens infiltrating governments on Earth in a video he recorded unearthed recently by paranormal website Inquisitr, which also claims the US government has crippled him by taking his pension and left him on social security.

In one video he said: “I know an ET and alien craft when I see them. Aliens are here on Earth, they walk among us. They may have been implanted into our various Earth governments.”

UFO believers are satisfied by pictures of him on his website, named after a self-published ebook of the same name, that he was with NASA.

But one online sceptic posted on a forum on the site which looks at “alternative topics” and conspiracy theories, questioned the validity of his stories, asking: “Why is it if you google his name it only comes up on UFO websites, or postings in forums where the topic of the post was UFOs? There are no mentions of him on NASA’s site.”
