Alien Disclosure From 
An Astronaut 
By Clark C. McClelland 
former ScO, Space Shuttle Fleet 
Kennedy Space Center, Florida 

Prior to the fateful launch of the space shuttle Challenger on 
January 28, 1986, I had the honor and pleasure of sharing 
conversations with several members of that crew. 
During one of many pre-mission preps for the Challenger mission, I 
came upon Lt. Col. Ellison Onizuka in the Vehicle Assembly Building 
(VAB) at launch complex 39. I had an assignment to assess some 
problems at the Launch Control Center (LCC) and needed to access the 
main drawing files. A file operator was there and I went to her for 
assistance. Ellison walked in on our conversation and we exchanged 
greetings. Jokingly, I asked him if he had important business with 
her, and he said "yes, Clark" with a big smile. I told her to help 
Lt. Colonel Ellison first, and I would wait. She opened a plastic 
bag which had a packet of goodies for this very important customer. 
Ellison "loved" those chocolate-peanut butter brownies that she 
baked for him when he was at KSC on training assignments. 
Many astronauts at the KSC knew of my interest in the study of 
possible ET intelligence, and my association with Major Donald 
Keyhoe, Dick Hall and the National Investigations Committee on 
Aerial Phenomena (NICAP since 1958), and the Mutual UFO Network 
(MUFON), at Cape Canaveral and KSC. 
Another evening while off-site, I once again accidentally came upon 
Ellison. He asked if I could give him an opinion regarding a topic 
that was sparking his curiosity. Ellison had a great interest in ET 
life and asked me my belief concerning aliens, and if I believed 
they have been here on earth? His question caught me by surprise. 
As we walked slowly towards our destinations, I briefly explained 
what I had learned since 1947, the initial year I entered my UFO 
research. I briefly related what I knew regarding the Roswell case 
and that I had become more aware of it many years later at the Cape 
through several discussions with ABMA (Army Ballistic Missile 
Agency) personnel who were at White Sands Proving Grounds near 
Roswell, New Mexico in July, 1947. These men had worked directly 
with Dr. Wernher von Braun and his team of German Scientists who 
were at that base at that time. Onizuka said he was aware of that 
I then told him my belief that life does exist among the stars and 
that it has visited earth throughout human history. He smiled in 
agreement. I thought to myself, what else does he know? Soon it 
became very clear. 
Onizuka asked me if my surname had any connection with McClellan Air 
Force Base in California? I said not as far as I was aware. I asked 
him why? Ellison said he had a surprising experience along with 
other USAF aerospace flight engineers and pilots while on military 
training duty at McClellan AFB, about eight or nine years prior to 
his astronaut training. 
He and this group were at this base for specialized training when 
they were directed to report to a viewing room. As they were seated, 
the room darkened and a movie began without the usual official 
introduction by a USAF officer. 
They were all startled when a view of a facility similar to a 
medical examination room appeared on the screen and small bodies 
were observed lying on slabs. He heard several excited comments by 
the other officers seated near him. The small, strange looking 
creatures were humanoid in shape, and appeared similar to those 
described by alleged witnesses at the well-known Roswell site in the 
Southwest USA in 1947. They all had large heads, large eyes, slight 
torsos, arms, and legs. They did not appear to be of earthly origin. 
Ellison then said, " Clark, my God, these highly trained officers 
and I were shocked by what we saw. We were not made privy to what we 
would see until it happened. We were all caught off guard. Perhaps 
it was a test of our psyche to determine our overall reaction. Well, 
we were all caught by surprise ". 
Needless to say, I was also caught off guard hearing this revelation 
from a highly intelligent USAF officer and NASA astronaut. One who 
flew his initial space mission 51-C in the space shuttle Discovery a 
highly classified Department of Defense (DoD) mission under top 
secret conditions. It made me wonder what else Ellison knew, or 
perhaps had seen, during his first shuttle mission and USAF career? 
I said "that's amazing, Ellison! Were all of you given any 
opportunity to question what you saw?" He said, "No! We were then 
asked to exit the room and continued our scheduled technical 
activities as if nothing special had occurred. In my opinion, I have 
considered the possibility that the group was evaluated for 
individual reactions to what they saw. Perhaps it was a planned USAF 
psychological test for military reasons. Who knows, NASA may have 
evaluated it in my selection as an astronaut in 1978. You know, what 
would my reaction be if I actually saw an alien being"? 
We arrived at our separate building destinations and briefly 
discussed his approaching second space mission in Challenger 51-L. 
He said he was anticipating a successful flight with Judy Resnik, 
Christa McAuliffe, and crew. I asked if we could discuss this topic 
again; and he agreed. 
Unknown to us both, this would be the last time we would speak. He, 
Judy, Christa and the other crew members would be making their final 
mission on January 28, 1986. I was at the Kennedy Space Center and 
watched in disbelief as they and space shuttle Challenger fell into 
the Atlantic Ocean. 
Upon leaving KSC for the night after being on duty for about 15 
hours, I was driving home to my Port St. John Apartment when the 
disaster finally caught up with my emotions. I pulled to the side of 
the main NASA causeway crossing the Indian River and sobbed my eyes 
out for about ten minutes. God, how horrible it was, and still is to 
this day, in my memory. 
God bless you Judy Resnik, Ellison Onizuka, Christa McAuliffe, Dick 
Scobee, Michael Smith, Gregory Jarvis and Ronald McNair. 
Thank you, God, for the honor of knowing all of them. And, please, 
if you would - - - make sure Ellison gets those chocolate-peanut 
butter brownies up there in heaven.

Note - Mr. McClelland's site no longer comes up. It was working fine 
when this story was posted yesterday. The link now leads to a 
different site. We have no idea what the problem might be. 
From a visitor -- 
I just contacted AlternateRealities.org about the problem with the 
McClelland website. My best guess is that this was an accidental 
DNS 'hijacking', and they say they've corrected the problem. Right 
now, I just get a custom error page, but I think after the DNS 
changes have a chance to propagate, all will be well.
