Sun, stand still on Gibeon! You, moon, stop in the valley of Aijalon!

Joshua 10:12-13 says:

12 Then Joshua spoke to Yahweh in the day when Yahweh delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, “Sun, stand still on Gibeon! You, moon, stop in the valley of Aijalon!”
13 The sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Isn’t this written in the book of Jashar? The sun stayed in the midst of the sky, and didn’t hurry to go down about a whole day. 14 There was no day like that before it or after it, that Yahweh listened to the voice of a man; for Yahweh fought for Israel.

This is the greatest miracle described in Bible. (“There was no day like that before it or after it, that Yahweh listened to the voice of a man.”)

I believe Bible, it has really happened, despite it is hard to believe, especially knowing modern science which looks to make it totally impossible.

But what is its “least miraculous” (and thus “most scientific”) explanation? I propose the following explanation:

A big alien spaceship with a giant solar sail came near to the Earth. What Israelites really saw was the reflection of the sun and the moon in the sail.

This looks improbable, but at least this is not totally impossible. I believe it has really happened in this way or another.
