The last part of question 2 seems to be a little loaded, his opinion as to why it didnt work on said astronauts is speculation and has no worth in this context IMO.
Jim, I would still like to understand the difference between a UFO and unusual visual phenomena and why/how the astronauts were able to differentiate. many thanks
Your points are ALL very well taken. As my post [above] stressed, let's keep the target in the crosshairs and not get distracted.
The only known copy on the Internet about an official Apollo-era NASA report on anomalous sightings and their significance is on my website, under the nickname that Mission Control used for them -- 'Moon Pigeons'. I think it directly addresses your last point.
