Although we can find hundreds of mysterious videos filmed by ordinary people as well as astronauts and the military, it is commonly believed that contact with alien life was never made.
If we take a look back into history, we will find several interesting documents that prove that ancient cultures like the Egyptians, or people living in Europe around 500 years ago, witnessed something in the sky that they could not adequately explain.
They saw something in the skies that was strange, but they knew it wasn’t weather related and thought of the mysterious phenomenon as a sign from the gods.
One of the most discussed ancient documents that suggests ancient Egyptians witnessed UFOs in the distant past is the so-called Tulli Papyrus.
This document offers the oldest citation of flying saucers on the planet.
As noted in this ancient text, during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmose III, a mass UFO sighting occurred over Egypt.
The event has been recorded in history as a day of great significance, a day when something inexplicable occurred.
Below, the translation of the text, according to R. Cedric Leonard:
“In year 22, of the third month of winter, sixth hour of the day […] among the scribes of the House of Life, it was discovered that a strange Disc of Fire was coming from the sky. It had no head. The breath from his mouth gave off a fetid odor. Its body was one rod long and one rod wide. It had no voice […] It was after the evening meal when the Disks rose even higher in the southern sky. Fish and other volatiles fell from the sky: a marvel not known since the founding of the country.”
In addition to this document, many other reports of strange activity in the sky have been recorded over the years.
In 1561, the inhabitants of Nuremberg, in present-day Germany, witnessed a battle in the sky.
This event is regarded as one of the best recorded UFO sightings in human history.
On April 14, 1561, people left their homes to go about their daily activities, but when they looked up at the sky, they saw something terrifying and inexplicable, as dozens of strange craft were flying over the city.
The local Nuremberg newspaper gave the following description of events about the city:
“On the morning of April 14, 1561, at daybreak, between 4 and 5 AM, a terrible apparition took place in the Sun and then this was seen at Nuremberg, before the gates and in the field, by many men and women. At first there appeared in the middle of the Sun two blood-red semicircular arcs, exactly like the Moon in her last quarter. And in the Sun, above and below and on both sides, the color was blood, there was a ball of iron color partly dull and partly black. Likewise there were on both sides red balls and other balls in great numbers, about three in a row and four in a square, also some alone. Among these globes were visible some blood-red crosses, between which were blood-red strips, growing thicker towards the back and front, malleable like the sticks of reed grass, which intermingled, between them were two great rods, one on the right, the other on the left, and within the small and large rods were three, four or more globes. All these began to fight each other, so that the globes closest to the Sun flew towards those that were farthest from the Sun, and the small and big sticks flew towards the Sun. Furthermore, the globes fought with each other for over an hour. And when the conflict was most intense, they grew tired to such an extent that they all fell from the Sun onto the Earth, as if they had all been burned, and they then crashed to Earth with immense smoke. After all this, something similar to a black spear was seen, very long and thick. The shaft pointed east, the tip pointed west. Whatever these signs mean, only God knows. By Hanns Glaser, letter painter from Nuremberg”.
But there’s more.
In 1665, hundreds of people witnessed another battle of ships in the sky above the town of Barhöfft in present-day northern Germany.
Shortly after the battle ended, the inhabitants of Barhöfft witnessed a dark disc-shaped object flying over the area where the battle had taken place.
The event was described by Erasmus Francisci in “Der wunder-reiche Ueberzug unserer Nider-Welt / Oder Erd-umgebende” (The wonderful covering of our nether world / Or around the earth) in 1689:
“After a while, from the sky came a flat round shape, like a plate, resembling a man’s big hat. Its color was that of the dark moon, and it hovered over the Church of St. Nicholas. There it remained stationary until evening. The fishermen, preoccupied with death, did not want to look at the spectacle any longer and buried their faces in their hands. In the days that followed, they fell ill with tremors and pain in the head and limbs. Many learned people have thought a lot about it.”
