5 Memorable UFO Encounters That Made History
The UFO Phenomenon has a long History that possibly dates back to Ancient Times.
The word UFO stands for Unidentified Flying Object which was a term first coined in the 1950s, and has since been replaced with the more modern term Unidentified Aerial Phenomena which came into use in 2019 when the US Navy used it to describe unidentified flying objects seen in clips of declassified Military Footage.
Below is a list of some memorable UFO sightings that were recorded in History.
On of the most Ancient written accounts of a UFO sighting can be found in an Egyptian papyrus which is part of the annals of Thutmose III.
The Papyrus records that in the year 22 of the Third Month of Winter, a circle of fire that was coming in the sky was observed. It had no head, the breath of its mouth had a foul odor, its body one rod long and one rod wide and it had no voice.
After some days had passed these things became more numerous in the skies, and they shone in the sky with more brightness than the Sun.
The Pharaoh caused incense to be brought to make peace on the hearth, and what happened was ordered by the Pharaoh to be written in the annals of the house of life so that it be remembered forever.
Perhaps one of the most famous written UFO accounts occurred in 1561 in Nuremberg Germany.
Its reported that at dawn, hundreds of crosses, globes and tubes fought each other above the city.
The entire episode lasted about an hour until the globes and the small and large rods flew into the sun and several of the other objects crashed to earth, vanishing in a thick cloud of smoke.
According to the Nuremberg gazette, the incident filled the morning sky with cylindrical shapes from which emerged black, red ,orange and blue-white spheres that darted about between the spheres.
There were also crosses with the color of blood.
The spectacle was witnessed by countless townspeople and it was suggested that the event had Religious significance.
On February 22nd, 1803 local fishermen in the Hitachi Province saw an ominous ship drifting in the waters.
Upon investigation, they found a beautiful young woman whom they described as having red and white hair, and dressed in strange clothes.
The fishermen claimed she held a square box that no one was allowed to touch, and spoke to them in a language they had never heard before.
Some UFO believers think this story is a credible document of a close encounter of the third kind whilst Historians consider it Japanese folklore.
The United States
In 1947, an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) crashed in Roswell, New Mexico.
The US Army deployed a team from the Area 51 Base which attended to the crash site, cordoned it off and retrieved the Aircraft that had crashed in the Nevada desert.
In addition, several eye witness testimony reveals that the object that crashed was not an ordinary human aircraft but what looked like an Alien Spaceship or ‘Flying Saucer’.
What is interesting however is that over time, former Military staff retired from the US Army and who were involved in the Roswell operation have come out openly to state that an Alien Spacecraft together with 2 Alien bodies were indeed recovered by the US Army at Roswell.
At the end of the day, the US Government attempted to explain the Roswell crash in its official statement stating that a ‘weather balloon’ had crashed at Roswell.
For these reasons, the Roswell conspiracy has simply refused to die and evidence of other UFO sightings since then has strengthened its credibility coupled with the secrecy the US Government has maintained over Area 51 which is a suspected UFO Hangar and Research Site.
One of the most significant Alien UFO sightings in recent times occurred at Ariel School in Zimbabwe in 1994 where a total of 62 school children reported observing an occupied unidentified shiny Flying disc craft hovering above the outskirts of the School playground.
The children in addition to being terrified reported that the occupants of the UFO craft came out to meet them and also sent them telepathic communications.
Frantically, the children reported the incident to the school staff but no adult was able to observe the Unidentified craft because it had vanished by the time the school teachers arrived at the scene of all the commotion.
The Ruwa UFO Incident received significant worldwide attention from renowned UFO Researchers.
Harvard Psychiatrist Dr John E Mack whose work involved the Psychiatric treatment of UFO abductees was amongst the respected UFO Researchers who investigated the Ruwa UFO Incident.
Interviews conducted with the school children and staff which included drawings by the Children strongly suggested that the experience was authentic, and that the events recounted by the children were both remarkably consistent and real in the minds of the Children.
For this reason, the conclusion reached by Dr John Mack and other researchers is that the Ruwa UFO Incident was a genuine UFO encounter.
The children reported and drew small grey Alien beings with large Black eyes who had a penetrating and blank sinister glance.
Subsequently, the children reported having thoughts about mankind’s destruction of the Planet and Armageddon that they had not had before.
Their only explanation for these thoughts was that they were somehow telepathically communicated to them by the grey beings they observed during the encounter.
They also reported a sense that the entities wanted to take them onto the UFO.
From this perspective, the Ruwa UFO incident is consistent with other UFO experiences around the world where UFO Experiencers and Abductees report being abducted and receiving information about the state of the Planet and mankind’s role within it from their encounters with various Alien entities like the Greys, Nordics and Plaedians.
In the final analysis, the UFO Phenomenon is intriguing and may date as far back as the Sumerian Anunnaki Gods as well as the Vimana Epics of Ancient India all of which detail encounters between Humans and ETs possessing extraordinary aerial vehicles which can be classified either as UFOs or Unidentified Aerial Phenomena.
If the UFO Phenomenon is real, then it would suggest that contact between Humans and ETs began with the creation of Civilization itself, and is a continous project that attracts regular ET visits perhaps for monitoring our progress.
It may also turn out that there’s nothing to the UFO phenomenon, but the incidents recorded over the course of History suggest that perhaps the truth may be out there.
