As expected, this show didn't teach me anything I didn't already know. I did find some cool websites in the process.

To follow your arguement Lear, you could also take a step further and say the patron himself had seen a UFO and requested to include it as personal
record of the event to be passed down through generations. The truth of it is - we don't know and won't know. Big shrug factor here but, fun to
