As I have Recently Posted Science Fiction Pulp Mag covers &
Illustrations of, Concept's of Space Craft Objects.

looking like The Description's of the Historical Shapes of
Saucer's & Sphere's. of Claimed Witnesses

I decided to Make a Brief Thread ..

Showing those Descriptions from the Tales Of World War Two
Pilots and Bomber Gunners to the Roswell Incident ..

It begs to differ if the Writers , Illustrators & Artist of these Particular
Science Fiction Pulp mags Heard tales of People that actually has
Seen them or just them conjured it all Up. Or Pilots, Military Personal to
Civilians, just made it up the Story's..


From Time to Time Ill Post Photos of these Illustration's and Pulp Covers.
I blows my mind as seeing these Concepts


Super Science Stories (1942 November )


Amazing Story's Quarterly Winter Edition ( 1930 )


(July 1931)


(1950 July )


( Modern Electronics )
( 1911 Space Flyer )

Lots of those artists conceptualizations came from Sci Fi novels. Written earlier than WWII in their droves, books like The Lensman Series first came out in the late thirties. They were full of fantastic and almost believable space craft of every shape and description. I remember being enthralled reading them for the first time. H.G. Well's First Men in the Moon comes to mind, too.

I can tell you for a fact that WWII bomber pilots and the Base Commander, Jesse Marcell at Roswell were experienced WWII veterans. Knowing the difference between some sticks and foil and actual unknown aerial phenomenon were second nature to them.

He never would have released a report to the press about "capturing a UFO" if this is what had been found in the desert.

Right not only Scifi Pulp Magazines also Books in which i have.

Concepts are amazing to me ..

Exactly Jesse marcell . would know about Weather Balloons there were being sent up Daily on the base.
itself.. it would be common knowledge.. for sure. on the Brazel Ranch .. he would picked up right on it
right off.

what I like is When Jesse Marcell while holding some Balloon Wreckage,
that facial expression are you #ing Kidding me Look. says it all..

Great collection of images, would make really good posters.

As for foo fighters, both my friends grandad and my grandad were in the air force during ww2. They had both seem them, they were stationed in different parts of the world. It was also a much discussed topic between pilots.

Whatever they were, they were a real phenomena.

Wasn't a lot of the early 20th century speculation coming via Theosophy, there was the channeling of how to build a Vimana in the 1920's, those early flying discs seem based upon the tops of Hindu temples

Yah, they made him eat that public crow big time by forcing him to pose with his "UFO" wreckage and retract that story. Press must have been having their own fits as they asked stupid questions and flashbulbed their "proof of no aliens" cover story.

Snicler, snicker, hee hee hah…

Dude on right just can't help it…

Thanks,

Two points; first, there were stories about flying saucers in circulation before they became popular in the media. Also, writers and artists can be aware of these things psychically. Artists often see things 'subconsciously' and they find their way into the work of the artist. Often screen writers imagine things that are real - the word 'imagine' means to 'image in', that is, to take in images of the invisible world that surrounds us.

Bah, these days it seems like the Foo Fighters have an impression on T.V and games.

Too right they are a real phenomenon
Makes one wonder why they were seen so much by the aircrews?

I also heard Stories from World war 2 Vets ..
Not Only from the Bombers and Fighter Pilots and Crew

also from Sailors too. seeing them in the middle of the Atlantic
as described Illuminated Spherical Shape moving sided to side like
as on WW2 vet called it , like Lightning..

10 years Prior, and During WW2 the Same Objects they have seen.. were in Various Pulp Mags
and Sci Fi Pulp Magazines were Popular ..

So its Either, Soldiers and Sailors Reading to many Pulp mags when they were
a Kid and in the military. or they actually seen them.

as Neither Side of the War, didn't Really knew what they were or Who Had them.
both the Axis and Allies thought it was the Enemy War Machine..

I read articles about these shapes before world war two.

Pulp Mags for Science Fiction didnt really take off until 1926.

Amazing Stories. and the Aliens were like insects , Tentacle Blobs,
Or Humanoids with Large Heads - Large Eyes, small thin Bodies.
pretty much like a Alien Gray Description, or High Tech Reptilian lizard Men.

Check out Amazing Stories Pulp Mags online from 1926 to 1930.
to see them!

Extremely interesting in the fact that your top page showing the flying saucers was in 1942.

The Kenneth Arnold UFO sighting occurred on June 24, 1947, and is (or was) the incident in which the term "Flying Saucers",

"Like saucers skipping on a pond"


was attributed to and coined.

Add: And coming across the 1911 one, blows my mind.
