But the simplest solutions are preferable. When someone sees a metallic flying object unlike anything conventional, and it shows up on radar, an actual craft of unknown origin is preferable to a projection from someone's brain...
But within the bounds of present science and evidence , the psychological explanation together with modern physics theories , provide a much better explanation , that covers the entire phenomenon !
No it doesn't..even the skeptics I've read don't invoke what you do.
And UFO lore started in 1917 not 1947 !
You could say at the end of the 19th century with Aurora. But the phenomenon intensified and gained much attention post WWII.
Previous to this date , the cases involved Air ship type visions of cigar shaped objects . Even further back the visions were of Angels or Demons ! Or fairies !
"Flying shields" were reported early in medieval times and many odd shaped flying objects over Nurnberg around the 16th century.
And most recently the triangular objects follow the shape of modern Aircraft !
The typical disc shaped object has no parallel among earthly aircraft; and there are often vast differences in size e.g. the phoenix lights.
