This conflation of UFOs and angels reminds me of a radio show that ran in the 1970s (and perhaps beyond then--my teens were in the 1970s, and I always had the radio on, which is why I noticed the show then), "God's News Behind the News." Each week the ancient-sounding narrator would analyze some recent event, and each week his conclusion was the same: the world is about to end. For example, the New York City power blackout of 1977 was a try-out for the apocalypse. On weeks when there were no disasters of a sufficient magnitude, he would report UFO sightings. He had a constant explanation for these: the UFOs were really angels, making reconnaissance missions in preparation for Armageddon. Why God the All-Knowing and All-Seeing needed other beings to provide Him information is something the narrator never went into.
