If so:

How do you explain that the "lights" in the footage pass behind (and not over) the dome of the Capitol?

Do light reflected on glass (be it a lens or a window) generate radar blips over Washingon DC?

Do light reflections make USAF scramble its QRA readiness jets to investigate the "bogeys"?

If even the USAF by then aknowledged the sightings and explained them away as temperature inversions, why do you go by the "lights reflection" explanation 61 years later?

You seem to prove my point. They saw tubes in the sky. The author collected reports of what people said they saw and meshed it all together into one short report and 1 simple woodcut pic which today would be labelled, 'artists interpretation'. Woodcuts were very simple and I imagine the person doing the woodcut had a few more to do whilst under the deadline to get the paper finished and published so they can make money by selling it, much like the Daily Mail of today.


Do you really believe that?
A dodgy reporter stressed by his editor boss!

Newspaper deadlines in XVIth century Europe? Oh boy!
Your post reveals one of the biggest mistakes on UFO study!
Is there any member fluent when german? That would be very helpful to translate the text that apparently goes with the Nuremberg image.

You must get to know the historical context (political, social and cultural dimensions) of the european societies of the Middle Age and in this particular of the Modern Age.
Also, UFO study must decenter from a strictly american perspective on the subject.

Besides, if AbleEndangered title for the image is the original one - Himmelserscheinung über Nürnberg vom 14. April 1561 - it translates to "Celestal phenomenon over Nuremberg on 14 April 1561".

By zooming the text that comes with the image I could recognize some words (morning, star) but a german speaking member would probably crack the puzzle.

This was the name of the printing press and the volume it was issued. A few tidbits of information about some of the inventions and minds running about around about the time of this event.

The first printing press was invented by the English businessman Sir William Caxton. in 1476. He was a royal advisor, editor and printer. He learned his trade in printing in Cologne, Germany. When he returned home to England, he created his invention and set about creating mass prints of various books, such as the Canterbury tales and the bible. An interesting tidbit, is that he refused to print in various dialects and languages. So he did much to standardize the English language and it's spelling.

Meanwhile, in Germany, where Sir Caxton trained in his profession, Johannes Gutenberg did much to revolutionize and improve printing with has invention - by creating the movable printing press. His invention could print a page every 3 minutes and concentrated on reproducing mainly religious materials.

Other minds running around these times thinking and contemplating was Leonardo Da Vinci, who died just before the Nunberg event. However he was a remarkable man - who likely had an impact on the times as an acedemic in various fields of interest. He was an Italian inventor, artist, and scientist. He was particularly interested in engineering and drew all sort of flying machines that likely should give him an honorary title of prophet and saint! Regardless, he was a mind, centuries ahead od f his time!

Galileo Galilei was born just after the event in 1564. He also was Italian. He was the first to here of Hans Lipperohey's invention of the telescope in 1609, and take it to the skies.

My point with these little tidbits of facts and information is just to illustrate and show - we are speaking of intelligent, thinking people, accomplishing great things in innovation and ingenuity. I am certain, fireworks could easily have been identified by discerning minds. Now, a swarm of meteorites burning up and exploding, at close call overhead. I might be able to concede "possibly" - but fireworks, I just can't figure it.

You make a good argument by naming those people are leaders in their firld. The same can be said of today with Stephen Hawkings, Banksy, etc, but back in those days there was a huge difference between the highly educated and the common people. And yes, newspaper editors would have been nearly common people too with training mainly in their specific field. As you say, fireworks were relatively new back then. The editor may very well have known they were fireworks, (or meteors), but he or the reporter collected the info from the people in the city and published it regardless to sell the newsheet to them and make money.

We all know that newspapers don't print the actual truth.

My German isn't that good.. oh that's old one even worse. Yes the Nuremberg sighting, if there were really ships fighting in the air, why hasn't there been any bodies, metals and wreckage? Did they even see any of the objects falling to the ground?

unitedcats.wordpress.com...


In the year 1561 on the 14th day of April in the morning between … [difficult special time phrase] … and … [difficult special time phrase], that is in the morning between 4 and 5 on the little clock, a very horrible vision showed at the sun when she rised and was seen at Nuremberg in the town and in front of the gate and at the countryside by alot of male and female persons. First the sun showed and was seen with two bloodcolored, halfround strokes like the diminishing moon right through the sun, and in the sun, above, under and on both sides stood bloodcolored and partly blueish or ironcolored, also blackcolored round orbs. The same on both sides and in circled plates around the sun – there were such bloodcolored and the other orbs in great numbers, standing three in a row, sometimes four in a quadruple, also alot as singles. And between such orbs alot of bloodcolored crosses have been seen, and between such crosses and orbs were bloodcolored strips, thick behind ["streyme hinden dick"] and to the front a bit smoother than … [ ? "hocken rho[?]“]. Mixed in between together with others stood two big tubes, one to the right and the other to the left [hand's side], in those little and big tubes were three, four and more orbs. This alltogether began to fight ["streyten"], the orbs first in the sun moved towards the ones standing at both sides, so the ones, which were outside, moved together with the orbs out of the small and large tubes into the sun.
Also the tubes moved towards each other like the orbs and everything fought and battled ["gestritten und gefochten"] with each other nearly one hour long. And after the battle, which moved for a while into and again out of the sun from one side to the other most violently, exhausted itself by each other, everything (as drawn above) fell from the sun and the sky down to the earth like burning alltogether and vanished ["vergangen"] down on the earth gradually [? "allgemach"] in a big smoke. After such events something like a black spear, the shaft from sunrise [east] and the head towards sundawn [west], has been seen with big thickness and length.

[It follows a lengthy phrasal standard passage from a typical christian viewpoint of that time, about warning signs of Godfather, the sin of the non-believers and the awaited day of judgement etc. Not very related to the event as such, but there is a hint by Hans Glaser, that the "signs" in the sky were significant in quality and numbers in the recent time.]


IF there are aliens, all points to two factions - the Reptilian, Grey, 'Old Empire', Earth underground dwellers, i.e Draconian aka demons plus any of such in space VS light beings aka angels, Pleiadeans, human looking, etc. IF there are, there seem to be two factions there.

Thanks Taoistguy for those links.

Thanks Taoistguy and Impactor for translating.

Well, in the first lines of the translated text it seems a description of some sort of sunlight reflection/refraction phenomenon.

But, then I get confused when it describes tubes and orbs and their movements, and mentions a battle between them and some sort of battle debris falling down to earth.

Could be some sort of light refraction phenomenon and the effects of looking to the sun directly and too much time?

Doesn't seem to be any mention of noise, just the visuals.

Either the author forgot to mention or there was no perceptible sound. If it was the later, that most likely rules out fireworks.

Also bugging me is the mention of a black spear after the "battle".
An effect to eyesight from staring at the sun for too much time?

I think its been demonstrated before that the lights in this picture are just lens flares of the lights at the bottom of the image.





The picture above is still image of a recreation used in a UFO documentary and is not actual footage or photo of the incident.

Never heard of the football stadium incident so thanks for that CircueDeTruth

Thank you. I didn't know that this photo was a reenactment photo. I just preferred this one associated with the event better than the other option I had for posting with the story which is this one:



Maybe this was the actual pic of the event, and I choose the one created for a documentary because it appealed to my personal tastes. I thought it looked prettier.

Yes i believe you posted a colourized version of the original black and white photo as far i know no real video footage is available.

The video below is recreation used in either UFO documentary or an X files episode (not sure which one) plenty still believe its genuine footage.

The only real warning about the interdimensionals, since even corporal ETs are different channels and dimensions since we're in a huge multiverse, and our channel is very dense and low. Dimensional does not equal astral, there are astrals on every plane and corporal on many planes.

What matters is the frequency of love and peace and goodness in our hearts, and what eye we see with, so that when you hold fear, and think its all scarey, you're sort of putting that around you. Reach higher within you and then nothing outer, concerns you, except for the joy of recognition that occurs when you're frequency raises, and sending compassion and understanding to anyone lost and into control and harm.

Thanks Unity_99.

I try to strive to remain in the light of love and positivity. It's never the metaphysical world that brings me crashing down... I guess the boogey's/bad types are scared of me.

Generally PEOPLE award themselves that honor.
