I had a similar notion, sightings, as recorded from the 1940's through to the 1990's tended to be disk, cigar shaped, and glowing. Current sightings tend to be angular and tube shaped, also "shape shifted" (my feeling is that the craft has rotated and presented a different view) and clusters of orbs grouped closely together, individual orbs and many other unusual shapes. It could be that the advent of personal image capturing equipment has given us a more sophisticated view of these phenomena and a wide descriptive base to define our sightings.
Another thought that I have pondered on is the descriptions of alien creatures, thaty do not seem to have changed much over the years, but certain types seem to be seen in certain areas, like for example hairy with red eyes also winged reptile like seen in puerto rico and mexico/central america.
Just my opinion, could be wrong.

since the 40 and 50s WE have been making our own craft....that could explain the change of design..

Logically if there traveling at very high speeds it would'nt be man made obviously because your brain can't drive something that fast without screwing up.
Picture yourself driving a car at the speed of light.
Also what makes you think all UFO's should be one shape or brand?
We have so many different cars here on earth obviously aliens would have a bunch of different spaceships for different situations like abducting, observing and for under water maybe, who knows.

John Keel wrote a book called "why ufos?" in the 70s about this topic.
if i remember correctly,
His basic idea was that humankind sees UFOs as a representaion of our fear of our tecnological evolution. UFOs tend to be the next step, something that is just starting to be scientifically understood or being experimented with.
2000 years ago they were described as flaming chariots, clouds things like that.
1700s some were seen as giant flying "sailing" ships
mid 1800s they were airships which were just staring to be developed.
1940s -1960s they became saucers and missiles. The saucer shape was experimented with by various militaries (which they couldnt perfect supposedly) and missles were just being understood.
Now its become giant lights with strange shapes doing things we know aircraft cannot do.
Its all relative to what you understand is possible.
Now its obvioulsy not this cut and dry with what people have reported , but there does seem to be sort of gradual evolution.
check out the book, its pretty good
