Justified & Ancient

As I was catching up on reading this thread I thought of this very sighting. Normally I would believe anything a British man with two first names and two last names has to say, but his total lack of desire to find a mundane optical explanation amazes me.The Oldfield (UK) 1955 'UFO' footage - this one is a classic:
I first saw this years ago on a children's show about UFOs on CBS. It was the same material presented from the opposite viewpoint - horrendously condescending to any world view that allowed that there are still things that science didn't understand. It featured two women from the CBS news reporting staff, one playing the wise voice of reason and the other a gullible idiot. When the footage came on the nitwit shouted something like "Oh my God, it's a real flying saucer from another planet!" as if she were a dim five-year-old who wasn't there for the beginning of the show that stressed the importance of looking for mundane explanations.
I wonder how many kids who watched that show had their gifts of wonder and imagination squashed by it.
