UFO Discovered In 16th Century Painting - Craft Shown Emitting Smoke

Hovering 'UFO' found in Monastery Painting From The 16th Century 

A strange disc pouring smoke and hovering over buildings has been found in a Romanian monastery wall painting thought to date from the 16th century.

A strange disc is seen hovering over a building in Romania
UFO researchers claim it is just one of many old paintings which seem to show evidence of visitors from another world. 

The image is painted on the wall on a 14th century church in Sighisoara - thought to the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the historical figure on whom the Dracula legend is based.

The photograph was taken by a tourist, Catalina Borta, and sent to UFO experts at the Israeli Extraterrestrials and UFOs Research Organization (EURA).

The caption on the painting says, ‘Israel, put your hope in the Lord,’ and the image is thought to date from just after 1523, when the Bible was first translated into German.

UFO experts have drawn a comparison with other well-known paintings which seem to depict flying saucers, such as the 1710 painting Baptism of Christ by Aert de Gelder.

1710, by Aert de Gelder 'The Baptism of Christ'
Nigel Watson, author of the Haynes UFO Investigations Manual says, Flying saucers, UFOs and other weird objects in the sky have been depicted throughout the history of humanity.

What appear to be UFOs and aliens appear in the cave paintings of ancient man, the religious paintings of the Renaissance period and in the works of chroniclers and storytellers.

Some of the most striking UFO images appear in Renaissance art. As an example, a painting titled The Crucifixion depicts two spherical flying craft that plainly have a pilot inside them. It is of 1350 vintage and hangs over the altar in the Visoki Decani Monestry, Yugoslavia.

In the 15th Century, The Madonna with Saint Giovannio, the artist Domenico Ghirlandaio depicts a disc-like craft with rays shooting out of it over the left shoulder of Mary. A man with a dog behind Mary are shown looking at this aerial object.

The Baptism of Christ painted by Aert De Gelder in 1710 is a stunning vision of a circular craft beaming rays of light that illuminate Jesus and John the Baptist. It can be viewed at the Fitzwiliam Museum Cambridge.

An explanation for these Biblical paintings is that they are symbolic representations of angels and that the beams of light from them represent the Holy Spirit. These beams of light can also represent the miraculous impregnation of Mary that led to the birth of Jesus. Ironically, people today are literally seeing objects like this in the sky and associate their activities with the concept of ancient astronauts that it is speculated, we worshipped as Gods in the past.

Certainly, symbolism and artistic license is at work but whether they are based on ‘real’ sightings or belief in UFOs from other realms, or not, they still give us a sense of wonder and have a powerful impact on our psyche.

Officials Believe Aliens Responsible For Fires in Italy

Officials Say Aliens Caused Fires in Sicily

Aliens were responsible for a series of unexplained fires in fridges, TV’s and mobile phones in an Italian village, according to an Italian government report.

Canneto di Caronia, in northern Sicily, drew attention three years ago after residents reported everyday household objects bursting into flames.

TV news footage at the time showed electrical appliances as well as cookers, a pile of wedding presents and furniture smoldering.

Dozens of experts including scientists, electrical engineers and military boffins, arrived in the village 60 miles east of Palermo to investigate the phenomenon.

Arson was quickly ruled out and at one stage an amazed scientist was interviewed after he described how he saw an unplugged electrical cable burst into flames.

Locals were quick to blame supernatural forces and at the time the Vatican’s chief exorcist Father Gabriele Amorth backed up their fears and said: "I’ve seen things like this before. Demons occupy a house and appear in electrical goods. Let’s not forget that Satan and his followers have immense powers."

Now in an interim leaked report published by several Italian newspapers it has emerged that the Civil Protection Department has concluded the most likely cause was "aliens".

The report was ordered by the Italian government and brought together dozens of experts including a NASA scientist. Their two year investigation has cost an estimated £1 million.

According to the report the fires were "caused by a high power electro magnetic emissions which were not man made and reached a power of between 12 and 15 gigawatts."

The report also detailed a possible UFO landing close to the village, citing "burnt imprints which have not been explained were found in a field."

Francesco Mantegna Venerando, Sicily’s Civil Protection chief who coordinated the report, said: "This is not the final report. We are still working on our conclusions and this has been leaked.

"We are not saying that little green men from Mars started the fires but that unnatural forces capable of creating a large amount of electromagnetic energy were responsible.

"This is just one possibility we are also looking at another one which involves the testing of top secret weapons by an unknown power which are also capable of producing an enormous amount of energy."

Two Police Officers Give Chase To UFO Over New York In 1974

After two separate patrol cars saw “a bright light in the sky without the markings of a normal aircraft,” one car followed the light because one of the deputies in the car was “curious, more or less.”

"2 Livingston deputies give chase to a ‘UFO’."

“Two Livingston County sheriff’s deputies said they followed a ‘bright round object’ in the sky for about half an hour early today from Geneseo to near Warsaw before giving up the pursuit.”

The object described by Deputy Nicastro as a ball of light a little smaller than the full moon, increased speed as the the patrol car speed up and decreased speed when the officers slowed down. 
deputy NiCastro said he and deputy McDonald spotted the object 50 - 100 feet overhead while patrolling the southern edge of Geneseo.

Deputy McDonald and myself got out to look at it. Deputy NiCastro related , "then we called another patrol car over to verify the fact that we weren't seeing things."

Three in the patrol car saw it. So did a Geneseo village policeman.

The deputies now reassured got permission from headquarters and took off on route 28-A after the object, which then appeared to be over he town of Leicester. 

I was curious more or less Deputy NiCastro said " I had to satisfy my curiosity I wish I had binoculars."

The object remained in front of the deputies increasing and decreasing speed with the patrol car, for about 15 miles until they reached the Perry-Warsaw town line in Wyoming County.

"I wanted to see if it would land at Warsaw Airport Deputy Nicastro explained, it didn't and we were getting a ways out of our jurisdiction."

The Livingston County deputies summoned their Wyoming County counterparts to take up the pursuit. But the Warsaw based officers could not find it. 

Deputy NiCastro this morning described the light as, "a bright object in the sky with markings of a standard aircraft."

Documents Obtained in 1979 Lawsuit Show CIA Involved In UFO Surveillance

New York Times 1-14-79 C.I.A. PAPERS DETAIL U.F.O. SURVEILLANCE -- Agencies Secret Studies Convince Arizona Research Group That Flying Saucers "Are Real" 

PHOENIX, Jan. 13- Documents obtained in a lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency show that the agency is secretly involved in the surveillance of unidentified flying objects and has been since 1949, an Arizona based U.F.O. group. 

The C.I.A. has repeatedly said that it investigated and closed it's books on U.F.O.'s during 1952, according to Ground Saucer Watch, a nation-wide research organization of about 500 scientists, engineers and others who seek to scientifically prove or disprove the existence of U.f.O.'s, but 100 pages of documents obtained under a freedom of information suit, show "the Government has been lying to us all these years," it said. 

Embassies Gather Information 

Mr. Spaulding an aerospace engineer with Airesearch, one of the largest producers of aerospace components, said the documents show the United States embassies are used to help gather information on U.F.O. sightings and that the information "seems to be directed to the C.I.A., the White House and the National Security Agency." 

A C.I.A. memo of Aug. 1, 1952, recommends continued agency surveillance of "flying saucers," saying, "it is strongly urged, however, that no indication of C.I.A. interest or concern reach the press or public, in view of their probably alarmist tendencies to accept such interest as 'confirmatory' of the soundness of 'unpublished facts' in the hands of the U.S. government," the document said. 

Among the documents are several detailed reports of Air Force attempts to either intercept or destroy U.F.O.'s. In a 1976 incident in Iran, one report says, two F-4 Phantom jet fighters pursued a large U.F.O. that seemed to send out smaller craft. One of their smaller craft "headed straight toward the F-4 at a very fast rate of speed,' the report said. "The pilot attempted to fire an Aim-9 missile at the object but at that instant his weapons control panel went off and he lost all communications." The pilot eluded the craft, then watched as it "returned to the primary object for a perfect rejoin," the report continued. 

Concern About Russian Aims 

A major point of concern, a C.I.A. document of Oct. 2, 1952, shows, is that U.F.O. sightings could mask Russian air attacks, or "psychological warfare." The report to the director of Central Intelligence from the assistant director for the Office of Scientific Intelligence recommends the the National Security Council be advised of the "implications of the flying saucer problem"; that the matter be discussed with the Psychological Strategy Board, and that the C.I.A. help "develop a policy of public information which will minimize concern and possible panic resulting from the numerous sightings of unidentified objects."

 A document dated November 1975, directs against acknowledging any pattern in sightings. "Unless there is evidence which links sightings, or unless media queries link sightings, queries can best be handled individually at the source and as questions arise," it said. "Response should be direct, forthright and emphasize that the action taken was in response to an isolated or specific incident." Mr. Spaulding says the documents show that there are links and patterns in the sightings. From that evidence, he says, he believes U.F.O.'s are here on surveillance missions. 

"We find a concentration of sightings around our military installations, research development areas," he said. " The U.F.O. phenomenon is following what our own astronauts are doing on other planets- we send a scoutship, we take soil samples and then we land." 

Another Suit Pending

Mr. Spaulding said he has sworn statements from retired Air Force colonels that at least two U.F.O.'s have crashed landed and have been recovered by the Air Force. 

One crash, he said, was in Mexico in 1948 and the other was near Kingman, Ariz., in 1953. He said the retired officers claimed they got a glimpse of dead aliens who were in both cases about four feet tall with silverish complexions and wearing silver outfits that "seemed fused to the body from the heat." 

Mr. Spaulding said his group is waiting for a Federal Judge to rule on the last phase of its C.I.A. suit, which seeks access to 57 items that would provide "hard evidence" of U.F.O.'s or "retrievals of the third kind." That evidence includes motion pictures, gun camera film and residue from landings, he said. 

Among the films they want is 40 to 48 frames taken in 1952 by Ralph Mayher, then a cameraman for KYW-TV in Cleveland and now a member of Ground Saucer Watch. The Air Force borrowed the film in 1957 and has never returned it. The official finding was that the object was a meteor, Mr. Spaulding said. "We're past the story-telling stage," Mr. Spaulding said. "We have to have it in black and white to satisfy the scientific community. We have to establish the existence of the object to all the people in Missouri and then figure out who's driving it."

How Aliens Look May Surprise You...Says Biologist Richard Dawkins

What will alien life look like? Evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins told BBC Future why it may be a complete surprise.

Out there, far beyond the edges of our solar system, is there life?

In this video, presented at BBC Future’s World Changing Ideas Summit in New York, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins explores one of the great existential questions faced by humanity: what kind of life exists beyond Earth?

It’s safe to assume, says Dawkins, that if we ever have contact with extraterrestrial life from outside our solar system, it will be intelligent. That’s because of the huge distances between Earth and other planets. But beyond that, this may be the only thing we have in common with aliens. Life on our planet is carbon-based, but as Dawkins argues, it’s not totally out of the question to have life based on silicon – robotic, in other words.

Alien beings may be nothing like us – so if and when we meet, it’ll also transform our understanding of ourselves and the Universe we live in.

UFO Sighting During A Blue Angel Performance in California

San Francisco, California - 10-11-14 - I was watching Blue Angels with 100's of people on rooftops. I used my iPhone 6 to shoot several slow-mo videos. I never got them quite right above me. 

5 days later, I watched the videos and when I saw them in slo-mo (they were shot at 240FPS) I saw something pretty incredible.

There must be 100's of videos like that, 10,000+ people were watching. I did not see anything in real time and you cannot really see anything in real time on the video either.

But since I was shooting at 240FPS, at slow-mo, object moving across the sky, making a loop to "look" at the flying planes, while they look almost still and taking off at 10-100x the speed of the jet planes is clearly visible.

I have the original video, untouched on my iPhone 6. It could be validated by experts. You could also ask on local TV station for other people who shot 3:27:00 - 3:28:00 PM in high speed!

Other people must have much better video of this. There were hundreds of people who must have shot this and just did not realize what is on their videos.
