UFO in 1034, Ancient Alien/UFO Case, Nuremberg Chronicle, Pictures

The Nuremberg Chronicle, UFO 0f 1034, in 15th century book

The Nuremberg Chronicle is an illustrated Biblical paraphrase and world history that follows the story of human history related in the Bible; it includes the histories of a number of important Western cities. Written in Latin by Hartmann Schedel, with a version in German translation by Georg Alt, it appeared in 1493. It is one of the best-documented early printed books—an incunabulum (printed, not hand-written)—and one of the first to successfully integrate illustrations and text.

A rare typeset book from 1493 contains what may be the earliest pictorial representation of a UFO. The book Liber Chronicarum (or commonly known as the Nuremberg Chronicle), describes a strange fiery sphere, seen in 1034, soaring through the sky in a straight course from south to east and then veering toward the setting sun. The illustration accompanying the account shows a cigar-shaped form haloed by flames, sailing through a blue sky over a green, rolling countryside. This "may" be the first work that actually contains actual illustrations of UFO's.

As was common at the time, the book did not have a title page. Latin scholars refer to it as Liber Chronicarum (Book of Chronicles) as the phrase appears in the index introduction of the Latin edition. English speakers have long referred to it as the Nuremberg Chronicle after the city in which it was published. German speakers refer to it as Die Schedelshe Weltchronik (Schedel's World History) in honour of its author. 

The book is filled with odd images (illustrated above) but it does reference what we would call UFOs today and warrants attention.
