Sightings of strange objects in the sky have been recorded since ancient times.
The Ramayana, an ancient Indian Veda epic dating back to the fourth/fifth century B.C., recorded a “chariot that resembles the sun, that aerial and excellent chariot going everywhere at will, resembling a bright cloud in the sky, and the king got in and the excellent chariot rose up into the higher atmosphere.”
Another ancient Indian text, the Mahabharata, described a flying craft as twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels about seven feet in diameter… “powered by winged lighting…it was a ship that soared into the air, flying to both the solar and stellar regions.” “They roar… off into the sky until they appear like comets.”
In 217 BC, it was reported by Orosius and Livy that round metallic shields were seen in the sky.
In 173 BC, Livy reported a “great fleet… in the sky” in Lanuvium, Italy.
In 100 BC, the people of Ameria and Tuder reported “a round shield, burning and emitting sparks” and ”objects in the sky rushing together from east and west, those from the west being routed.”
In 91 BC, a Golden orb phenomenon was seen in Umbria, Italy and recorded in the painting seen below.
On August 7, 1566, citizens of Basel, Switzerland reported seeing many spheres in the sky for several hours, and recorded the phenomenon in the painting seen above the title.
Every single year, the topic of UFOs grows in popularity, and that’s primarily due to the fact that they’re actually real. The most recent example comes from the Pentagon, they recently released footage of two Navy pilots scrambled to intercept a UFO. It performed maneuvers and travelled at speeds no known man-made air-craft can today.
There are thousands of documents detailing countless amounts of encounters between these objects several different nations and their military.
Does this mean they’re extraterrestrial? Not exactly, but what’s often overlooked is the extraterrestrial hypothesis (as a possible explanation for these UFOs).
Sightings of strange objects in the sky have been recorded for a very long time. For example, in 217 BC “at Arpi round shields (parmas) were seen in the sky” (Liv. 22.1.9; Orosius 4.15). A parma was a small round shield made of iron, bronze, and other metals. According to NASA, “we do not know whether the luster of these devices (and not just their shape) was intended to be an element of the description. Mock suns are an unlikely explanation, since in the Roman prodigy lists these were routinely described as ‘double suns’ or ‘triple suns’ (i.e. two mock suns on either side of the real one).”
Another example would be the picture, known as the “Golden orb” phenomenon seen at Spoletium, Umbria, Italy in 91 BC (from Jaques Vallee, Chris Aubeck: Wonders in the Sky.)
The one (above the title) is from August 7, 1566. At dawn, many citizens of Basel (Switzerland) reported seeing many spheres for several hours.
In 173 BC “at Lanuvium a spectacle of a great fleet was said to have been seen in the sky” (Liv. 42.2.4). In 104 BC, “the people of Ameria and Tuder observed objects in the sky rushing together from east and west, those from the west being routed.” In 100 BC, “a round shield (clipeus), burning and emitting sparks, ran across the sky from west to east, at sunset.” Thus Pliny (Nat. 2.100), although Obsequens (45) called the phenomenon “a circular object, like a round shield.”
The Ramayana is a Veda epic that dates back to the fourth/fifth century, B.C. (MahabharataVIII.31.80). In one passage, a vimana is described as a “chariot that resembles the sun, that aerial and excellent chariot going everywhere at will, resembling a bright cloud in the sky, and the king got in and the excellent chariot rose up into the higher atmosphere.” (Dolan, Richard. UFOs For the 21st Century Mind. New York: Richard Dolan Press, 2014) (Daniken, Erich. Chariots of The Gods.New York: Berkley Books, 1970).
Vimanas are also described in the Mahabharata, another ancient text. In this case, measurements are given for one of the vimanas. It’s described as having twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels, approximately 20 to 25 feet in circumference, about seven feet in diameter.
“They roar like off into the sky until they appear like comets.” The Mahabharata and various Sanskrit books describe at length these chariots, “powered by winged lighting…it was a ship that soared into the air, flying to both the solar and stellar regions.”
This is something that’s been documented by several different cultures from around the world up to the present day. And although many of today’s sightings can be explained by modern day conventional science, a large portion, not small, remain a complete anomaly.
