ParagonComplex: Something like this probably accounts for nearly all of the UFO sightings from around that time and probably even today. Then you have to wonder how they got the idea to begin with.

"Back in those glory days, I was very uncomfortable when they asked us to say things we didn't want to say and deny other things. Some people asked, you know, were you alone out there? We never gave the real answer, and yet we see things out there, strange things, but we know what we saw out there. And we couldn't really say anything. The bosses were really afraid of this, they were afraid of the War of the Worlds type stuff, and about panic in the streets. So, we had to keep quiet. And now we only see these things in our nightmares or maybe in the movies, and some of them are pretty close to being the truth."

It's news to me that there is a single law of aerodynamics.

Those are schematics for a 1950s street light not a UFO.
