Whenever I read about UFOs, I'm reminded of the big flap in the mid 70s about flying saucers hiding in the sun. Several folks claimed that UFOs actually existed but that they were hiding from us in the sun. Their proof was that every time they looked at the sun they could see black, circular objects. These people gathered quite a following of others who believed them -- because when they looked at the sun they saw the same thing.
Eventually, it was determined that these gullible people had burned holes in the retinas of their eyes by looking at the sun without eye protection. The black, circular objects that they were seeing were the burned places inside their own eyes.
