It seems to have been exciting enough for the Apollo astronauts
to have seized upon the SLA panel explanation for public
consumption long after they had correctly rejected it in private
during the debriefing immediately after their mission. If this
incident doesn't tell us much about whether astronauts ever have
witnessed "true" UFOs while in space, it does tell a lot about
how astronauts feel compelled to deal with such questions. And
it gives no reason for confidence in their denials.
