BC Rome: In the territory of Spoletium, in Umbria, a globe of fire, of golden color appeared burning in the north with a terrific noise in the sky, then fell, gyrating, to the earth. It then seemed to increase in size, rose from the earth, and ascended into the sky, where it obscured the disc of the sun, with its brilliance. It revolved towards the eastern quadrant of the sky.
122 BC Gaul: "In Gaul three suns and three moons were seen." - Obsequens, Prodigiorum, Ch. 114
163 BC Formice: "In the consulship of Tiberius Gracchus and Manius Juventus at Capua the sun was seen by night. At Formice two suns were seen by day. The sky was afire. In Cephallenia a trumpet seemed to sound from the sky. There was a rain of earth. A windstorm demolished houses and laid crops flat in the field. By night an apparent sun shone at Pisaurum." - Obsequens, Prodigiorum, Ch 114
BC China: The, Hsui-nan-tzu, a Chinese classic there is a description of ten suns appearing in the sky.
Erfurt, Prussia: Two burning suns were observed. The report says that a great burning beam then landed, took off again and then became circular in shape.
Two burning suns were seen at Erfurt, Prussia. Then a great 'burning beam’ landed suddenly. It took off again into the sky, where it became circular in shape.
• England: The scientist Tiberius Cavallo was a witness to a sighting that also stunned Royal guests at a celebration to mark the birth of the 15th son of King George 111 and Queen Charlotte! A luminous object appeared from beneath a cloud and soon became brilliantly lit before coming to a halt. According To Cavallo"s account of the incident: "This strange sphere seemed at first to be pale blue in colour, but its luminosity increased and soon it set off again towards the east." Even though the sun was shining the object is said to have lit up everything on the ground and eventually disappeared with a terrific explosion!
Edinburgh: A bright fireball light like the sun was seen traveling horizontally through the sky at. It dropped a little, then rose again, bursting behind a cloud.
• England, Devon: A Colonel Marwick reported a sighting of numerous 'highly colored objects like little suns or toy balloons.
• Korea: “Three objects appeared beneath the clouds, their color a rather bright red. As they approached the ship they appeared to soar, passing above the broken clouds. After rising above the clouds they appeared to be moving directly away from the earth. The largest had an apparent area of about six suns. It was egg-shaped, the larger end forward. The second was about twice the size of the sun, and the third, about the size of the sun. Their near approach to the surface appeared to be most remarkable. That they did come below the clouds and soar instead of continuing their southeasterly course is also curious. The lights were in sight for over two minutes and were carefully observed by three people whose accounts agree as to the details." A sighting by the U.S.S. Supply off of the eastern coast of Korea, as reported by then Lt. Frank H. Schofield, later to become Commander-in-Chief of the Pacific Fleet.
1951 Project Blue Book Unknowns
USA, New Mexico, Gallup: I was on the air at radio station KGAK in Gallup, New Mexico, just prior to the 8 a.m. news during November of 1951 and I got a call on the phone. A voice said Would you look toward the southeast and see if you see what those of us up on the mountainside see? I put on a long record...and I looked toward the southeast over the mountains (just before sunrise). There were five objects and...I had never seen a jet airplane in those days...with the flame out of the back. This is what they looked like...a cigar would kind of describe it. They were elongated objects, flame-colored...it was almost as if they were in formation moving in place in this formation...on a horizontal plane...not much vertical motion. I had to run back...get another record on...(give) five minutes of news...(I mentioned) it on the air...went back out and looked. The sun had come up by then and it was the exact color that these objects were, but the objects were gone. Later...I got to thinking a disc-shaped object, if it were metallic, could have reflected the sun in this elongated pattern...certainly a presumption on my part. There was a military radar post about 20 or 30 miles east of Gallup at that time... and I thought it was some kind of a military thing because the White Sands Proving Grounds were to the southeast of us quite a few miles away.

Of course SUN wheels will be all over the world, because everybody can see the SUN. Anyone who thinks that these represent alien spacecraft and not the sun is dumber than a rock.
it was at the library that Archimedes invented the screw-shaped water pump that is still in use today. At Alexandria Eratosthenes measured the diameter of the Earth, and Euclid discovered the rules of geometry. Ptolemy wrote the Almagest at Alexandria. It was the most influential scientific book about the nature of the Universe for 1,500 years.

Hiya Sky. No doubt the thread will generate scores of flags and an overwhelming level of agreement with the notion that all these symbols were flying devices and space craft.
Naturally, I'm opposed to the idea of ancient astronauts or even 'lost advanced technology.' We have no evidence of the infrastructure needed to build machines at any point or location in ancient history. Things that fly need engines or power sources. They need metal presses, steel and alloy foundries, lathes, and machines to build nuts, bolts and washers. They need factories of one size or other. Another point is that the civilisation that creates them would need to face great catastrophe in order to lose the machines and all that knowledge. Your contention would need earth-shattering events that removed the knowledge from all the civilisations you suggest had these machines. Such a series of events, spread across continents and a period of some thousands of years would need to erase all the evidence and then erase evidence of itself.
Alternatively, the objects and symbols in your images are actually what they are claimed to be...sun symbols. The sun has always been very important to humans, being both a source of heat and way of measuring time and seasons. As we developed agriculturally, it also grew in importance. It's no surprise that we have tried to capture the qualities of the sun in objects and images. A lot of these have become stylised and specific to regions and cultures. The 'winged disc' was shared by Egyptians, Assyrians and the Sumerians with the wings representing the vaults of the skies iirc.
I guess the 'abridged version' of my argument is this; either we were flying around in stuff for thousands of years or these symbols are representations of the Sun.

It's so obvious they were trying to worship the 'UFO', because to them the UFO would look like a being of God because of its technology was cosmically superior to anything in them days and they still are to this day.
If the Wright brothers didn't invent flying we would of still looked at UFO's as the same importance as the ancient man did.
This is a bit off topic but i believe Jesus was an alien. His intelligence would of astonished the simple folk of his time, so much they wanted to document his words(bible).

I am starting to believe in universal balance - correct vibration and a need for the earth to stay within these boundaries. Everything is built like Hoagland said at 19.5, pyramids and architecture all across the earth grid to keep our planet in line. Our ancient races learned this - were taught this, and that is why we are finding more and more hidden/ancient pyramids across the grid.
These beings have warned us - turned off the contact/control for nuclear missiles, it has been documented around the world by those who are in charge of maintaining them - they have made it clear to watch ourselves and what we are doing with our weapons and war.
They could have destroyed us if they wanted to - there is a reason we are all still here. But, cross a line and it would not be difficult to wipe the earth clean - again!
As a "personal" witness to these craft, their speed, their maneuvering I can tell for a "FACT" that they are not from here, they are from somewhere else - very much older/intelligent than us and have been monitoring what we are doing from the start. And if these visitors/grays are "programmed artificial beings" what does that say - that something can land and contact influence/contact us and they are bio/artificial beings?
We need to step back - forget everything and clear our minds - something is here - something is warning us but yet - we go full steam ahead into hate and destroying ourselves.
And how many times have we repeated this process?edit on 23-12-2010 by arizonascott because: (no reason given)

Actually it's more than possible that much of what we look for in regards to technology did get destroyed. We had a global flood/ cataclysm that happened at least 10,000 BC (most likely longer).
I've no doubt a lot of our history is submerged; but disagree about a 'global flood.' Sure, the sea has risen and regional flood events are a familiar act of nature to this day. The thing is, those rising sea levels could only be cataclysmic if people remained still for a couple of hundred years whilst it lapped around their ankles.

The symbol people have been most obsessed with as far back as the Stonge Age is the so-called "Sun-Wheel". This is also one of the only symbols found all over the world, from India to Ireland, from South America to Siberia.
This article proposes that the sun wheel, the "chariots of fire" and the "winged sun disc" are one and the same thing: Ancient flying devices used by extraterrestrials or technologically advanced humans.
