I think that the great majority of people in the world would likely have a very adverse reaction to such an open display of something that forces them
to re-set their view of reality.
You have to remember that for many many people the reality of life outside this planet is so anathema as to be completely unthinkable. There would be
massive riots as mob mentality swept over the crowds that would gather. There WOULD be people certain the visitors would be here to invade or
otherwise wish harm upon us. While many of us here take it as fact hat we are not alone in the universe, there are still people who are unwilling to
even entertain the possibility.
All of that being said, with as far advanced as is their technological systems so too would their governmental and social systems be. So much so that
we would likely gave a difficult time aprehending the ability for them to foresee such civil upheaval. I do not think that a civilization that is
benevolent would want to inflict such chaos and discord into an already troubled system.
Unless it were for a very good reason.
If this planet is about to experience some sort of cataclysmic change whether self-inflicted or natural, then it might be deemed acceptable to
intervene on behalf those affected.
On the other hand, they(extraterrestrials) might just sit back and watch us get what is coming to us considering how twisted as a species we've
demonstrated ourselves to be.
In either case I think we, as a whole, are just not quite ready for widespread acceptance of such an earth shattering revelation.
