It just so happens that I need to solve a similar question. Here's a very short clip of a flying saucer from The Day the Earth Stood Still.

We can find the location of the ship using Binarize. In this case, we've got to block out the bottom since the white building has a color similar to the ship. This is accomplished using ImageMultiply with a black bottomed image.
