I asked Barry Greenwood to check his clipping collection for the
article containing Cernan's quote. His answer:

The article is authentic, Jan. 6, 1973: "Cernan Says Other
Earths Exist"

    "I'm one of those guys who has never seen a UFO
    (Unidentified Flying Object). But I've been asked, and
    I've said publicly I thought they were somebody else,
    some other civilization." Gene Cernan, 1-6-1973

It goes on about his positive views on life in space and the
abundance of other civilizations.

So the quote is slightly different than given many places on the
web, but it is authentic.
