A space boffin claims he has proof aliens are living on the moon.

Brit author Simon Lewis says he has been given eerie photos which he says show UFOs and a strange structure up there.

They were taken by astronauts during the Apollo space programme and he is now revealing them for the first time.

One photo taken during the Apollo 16 mission in 1972 appears to show a mile-long cigar shaped object – thought to be a base – hidden inside a crater.

The Apollo 15 trip a year earlier captured a possible flying saucer.

Another snap shows a shiny UFO in a close encounter with the Apollo 11 lunar lander – in 1969, when Neil Armstrong first stepped foot on the moon.

Author Simon, 59, believes NASA is hiding the truth about UFOs and alien life.

He said: “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I’ve received so much information.

“I’ve got around 8,000 images all looking normal until you start looking closely and you realise some are odd.

“These photos have never been made public before.”

His interest in the Moon was sparked by a chance meeting with a former NASA employee in 1994, who told him the US and Russia had a secret base there.

The ex-operative, who now lives in England and worked as a doctor, said the US had a secret space programme running alongside the public one.

And to prove his claims, he handed Simon official documents from the Apollo missions and said he had designs for a secret highly advanced spacecraft, which took astronauts to the Moon on secret missions.

Simon, of Morecambe, Lancashire, said: “He took me into his study and there were thousands of books there.

“He handed me these documents and I was blown away.

“People can easily say that my source was a made-up character but he gave me everything he collected when he worked at NASA.

“In fact, he told me about life on Mars and bases, but never mentioned aliens though.

“What always makes me laugh is a lot of people will think it’s all rubbish, but that doesn’t bother me.

“I know the truth and feel honoured it was shared with me at that moment in time and it all made sense.

“The doctor told me the astronauts didn’t go to the moon just to collect soil samples. He said they went to look at artefacts and structures.”

Simon, a director of a landscape gardening business, has since written two books about his astonishing findings.
