It was a sort of long, thin diamond shape and it was white initially... Then it went through a sequence and it kind of changed to green, red and blue.

Handbook of UFO Religions
Volume Editor: Ben Zeller
- Brill Handbooks on Contemporary Religion, Volume: 20
The Handbook of UFO Religions, edited by esteemed scholar of new religions Benjamin E. Zeller, offers the most expansive and detailed study of the persistent, popular, and global phenomenon of religious engagements with ideas about extraterrestrial life. The present work considers not only new religions founded on ideas about extraterrestrials and UFOs, but how those within more mainstream religions have responded to the science, scientific speculation, and popular culture involving extraterrestrials, UFOs, and related concepts. Global in reach, it includes chapters considering South and East Asia, Europe, and North and South America, and draws on several interdisciplinary methods. In addition, the handbook traces connections between UFO religiosity and cultural patterns such as science and scientism, esoterism and occultism, millennialism, and popular culture.
This chapter examines “conservative evangelical ufology” from the 1970s to the present. Conservative evangelical ufologists argue that UFOs are real and that they are demonic: UFO entities masquerade as extra-terrestrials in order to promote belief in evolution and other scientific theories that conservative evangelicals reject as unbiblical. In making this argument, conservative evangelical ufologists draw on secular ufologists such as Jacques Vallée who argued that UFOs could not be from outer space and must be interdimensional. Rather than viewing these arguments as a rhetorical strategy by Christian apologists, this chapter frames this a form of hybridity in which evangelicals are genuinely absorbing ufological theories into their worldview.
its a good idea but i think they've stolen it. terrence mckennas idea about ufos is basically that, and i dont think he was the first either.
anything that considers them some extra-dimensional entity like fairies and that

The plates, taken prior to the launch of Sputnik in the 1950s, show satellite-like objects near Earth. A new study delves into the potential reasons.www.inverse.com
"An earthly object might be the best explanation for the flashing lights, Eliot Gillum, the director of optical SETI at the SETI Institute, tells Inverse. While there weren’t any satellites in 1950, the U.S. government had begun testing rockets several years earlier, relying on expertise from ex-Nazi scientists brought to the U.S. after the Second World War. There are several military bases near the Palomar Observatory, Gillum points out, any of which could have been launching rockets by 1950. He says the glints could come from a maneuver known as a roll program or from debris that broke off after launch."
