No, Buzz didn't see aliens

there is a buzz on the internet about Buzz Aldrin seeing a "UFO" on the trip to the moon.

Ah but if you parse his words, the "U' in UFO means merely "unidentified".

via David Reneke:

“On Apollo 11 in route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us.
There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world – it was either the rocket we had separated from, or the 4 panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraf“
So in the close vicinity, moving away, were 4 panels. And i feel absolutely convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don’t know. So technically, the definition could be ‘unidentified’.

italics mine.
“We well understood exactly what that was. And when we returned, we debriefed and explained exactly what we had observed. And I felt that this had been distributed to the outside world, the outside audience, and apparently it wasn’t, and so many years later, I had the time in an interview to disclose these observations, on another country’s television network. And the UFO people in the United States were very very angry with me...
