I am convinced that this case was a mass misidentification.
I utilized some astronomy tools to check that area of the sky, on the date in question.
I explicitly checked from around 2AM local time for Nuremberg all the way through 10AM, what people in Nuremberg would have seen, looking towards the
Multiple bright stars, multiple planets, a crescent moon, the sun itself, all OVER the horizon line from around 5:30~AM to 7:00AM
Lots of astronomical activity, this is a world without light pollution, this is a world without widespread astronomical knowledge, this is a world
where no one will tell you that if you stare at bright stars, the moon, or the sun, for a few minutes straight, you're going to get some dots and rods
in your vision.
I'm not accusing these people of any mental deficiency. Operating on the knowledge available to them, in the time period, this much activity in a
rising morning sky could very easily be interpreted incorrectly.
On top of that, I have a hunch and personal opinion that the "news" recordings of these events, are news of the "entertainment" variety. AKA, I think
these are the equivalent of an ancient MAD magazine article, or satire/hyperbole newspaper. I don't have direct evidence for that, but if you consider
that they drew a literal face on the sun in solemn seriousness, you don't understand the artwork of the old gallery of Paris and the pre-impressionist
I don't think these depictions were meant to be technical records.
