UFOs flying around the moon could get some company in the near future if Space Adventures has its way. The Virginia-based private space exploration company recently announced plans to offer trips around the moon to space tourists.

Passengers willing to pay the $150 million ticket price would launch into space aboard a three-seat Russian Soyuz spacecraft. Upon reaching space, the craft would rendezvous with a waiting, unmanned rocket that would take the spacecraft the rest of the way to the moon, where the moon would be circled at an altitude of 62 miles.

According to Popular Science, Space Adventures expects to begin launching their trips around the moon within the next five years.
