Interestingly I suspect that all the so called astronomers who
have belittled UFOs, would suddenly "come around" and be
claiming that they knew all the time UFOs were real; how it was
somebody else in the astronomical community who was saying they
were not etc etc.

In that said initial media frenzy, the media would be
interviewing so called PHd experts from various universitys as
well.  I suspect that the main stream UFOlogists who have
actually been studying UFOs for years would be regulated to a 5
second sound bite while the astronomical and PHd experts would
have their faces all over the cameras.

After that nobody and I mean nobody (well perhaps Phil Klass)
would claim to have ever been skeptical about the existance of
UFOs/life elsewhere, although we would hear all the storys about
how these same skeptics sincerely believed but until now, the
evidence wasn't available blah blah.
