The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

It was even featured in The Simpsons!

Actually it's sort of the other way around:

"The inspiration for this publication was a scene in the animated comedy television series, The Simpsons, in which Lisa Simpson reads a magazine called Junior Skeptic."

I overestimated how recent the magazine is versus how old that episode was.

Also see "Allusions" paragraph here.

"Devil's Tower is pictured on Lisa's Junior Skeptic magazine and on Mulder's office wall."[/list]
