Reagan also reported seeing a UFO while he was governor of California. I can't remember where I saw it, but there's an interesting site out there
that catalogues all the references he made to ETs in his official speeches. We've all heard about the one, before the UN, when he talks about all of
mankind unifying to fight off invaders, but it turns out that he talked about aliens a lot throughout the early years of his presidency.
A friend of mine at work was, in the 80s, at some dinner for bankers downtown that Reagan was addressing. He says that, in the middle of the speech,
Reagan swerved into the whole UFO thing for about a minute or so. Everyone was kinda surprised. After finishing with the 'all earth would unite to
fight them' line he went back to talking about politics as usual.
Oh, and as a sidethought, there's a genuine memo out there, from Kennedy, where he's talking about working with the Soviets in space. It contains a
line, and sorry I can't remember what it says, that some people believe is a veiled reference to the possibility of running into UFOs during Apollo
