Flying saucers? No.

UFO 'battle' over Nuremberg, Germany in 1561
April 4, Location
Summary: At sunrise on the 14th April 1561, the citizens of Nuremberg beheld "A very frightful spectacle." The sky appeared to fill with cylindrical objects from which red, black, orange and blue white disks and globes emerged. Crosses and tubes resembling cannon barrels also appeared whereupon the objects promptly "began to fight one another." This event is depicted in a famous 16th century woodcut by Hans Glaser.

This does not debunk the ET/UFO hypothesis. The author in the video simply shows that other paintings exist where the objects are not depicted like flying craft with crew, but as angels etc. All this shows us that flying craft and crew are the same as the angels, and that is exactly what the ET/UFO hypothesis says - the angels of the bible are actually ET.
The explanation of the UFO craft as angels etc does not negate the ET/UFO hypothesis, but stregthen it. It shows that some of these 15-16th century painters were aware of symbolism for biblical angels that is clearly ET/UFO.
It makes you think just how much the Church knew of the ET/UFO phenomenon even a thousand years ago. Clearly some medivial people were aware of an ET connection to the bible.

...if people want a video expert to see if a video is a hoax or not, why do they discard the opinion of the art experts in these cases?
