A friend writes to suggest that "crowned as the first
photographic evidence of UFOs" was Voisey's intended meaning.
"Crowed" is simply a typo.

I'm sure my friend is right, which puts me in the position of
the late Gilda Radner's Saturday Night Live character Emily
Litella.  Upon being corrected following a rant generated by a
misunderstood word, she could only squeak, "Never mind".
