S&F for you I have always been fascinated by things like this. This goes right along with the floating city stories. Thanks for posting I'm gonna go search for more.

These are the things that the various sightings hold in common...

Despite their variations, these chronicles have common characteristics and share a number of features that are readily identifiable:

• Extraordinary happenings are regarded as actual historical events and are transmitted during the Middle Ages as fact, not fiction, despite their supernatural dimension.

• The events are witnessed by numerous people, both secular (Teltown) and religious (Clonmacnoise).

• Seen from the ground, vessels are floating in the air above.

• Seen from the vessels, the air between them and the ground below is perceived as water in which fish swim and which enables the vessels to float above a submarine world.

• This air/water is life-giving oxygen to the people on the ground, but is life-threatening water to the swimming aircrew who almost drown.

• Air/water is the common element, which envelopes both ground people and sky people, as the heights above and the depths below.

This wasn’t the only optical phenomenon associated with one of these locations.

On of the airship sightings happened at a location that was also associated with a giant sighting.

The Clonmacnoise Monastery has been associated with both an air ship sighting and also the following story.

“In the reign of Congalach king of Ireland (A.D. 944 to 956) there lived a poet named Erard Mac Cossi who at the time of the present occurrence was on a visit with the king beside Lough Leane in Westmeath (near the village of Fore). Early one morning in summer this poet happened to be walking on the shore of the lake: and he saw at a little distance a very large woman—far beyond the usual size of women—sitting alone. She was dressed all in green, and as the poet came towards her he observed that she was extremely beautiful, and that she was weeping bitterly. He spoke to her and asked why she was weeping so. She replied that her husband had been killed that morning at the fairy-hill of Shee Codail; and buried in the great cemetery at Clonmacnoise. After some further conversation the woman rose up and went away: and Mac Cossi immediately sought the king and told him of his strange adventure. The king was much surprised and interested; and he felt so curious about the matter, and so anxious to test the truth of the story, that he set out at once with the poet for Clonmacnoise, where he arrived in the evening of the same day.

After the brotherhood had welcomed the visitors the poet told his story. But the monks knew nothing of such a person as he spoke of; and they were quite sure that no one had been buried in the cemetery that day. So the king concluded that either the story told by the large green-dressed lady was an invention, or that Mac Cossi himself was under some strange delusion: and they thought no more of the matter.

It was too late to return that night; so the king and the poet slept at the monastery. Early next morning they were awakened by the tolling of the death bell; and on inquiry they were informed that one of the monks had died the evening before and was to be buried that day. The monastery was all astir in preparation for the funeral; and as the cemetery was close by, the king and the poet remained to see the interment.

When the monks went to dig the grave, they were surprised to find that the spot they had chosen had all the appearance of being quite recently disturbed—the red clay fresh and soft—as if a grave had been opened and closed again. But how this could have come to pass was more than any one could tell, seeing that the burial ground was within full view of the monastery windows; and that not even a single stranger, much less a funeral, could enter it without being observed. And what was more startling still, they found marks of blood on the clay, and fresh green leaves scattered about. Seeing this, they set about examining the place thoroughly while the king and Mac Cossi looked on; and they resolved to open the grave. Deeper and deeper they dug, tempted on by the blood-marks and leaves; till at length, at a depth far beneath the ordinary graves, they came upon the body of a great bearded man fifteen feet high, lying full length with the face downwards. It was surrounded with a thick covering of green birch-branches, carefully placed between it and the clay;and when they came to examine the body, they found it all bloody, with many great wounds and other marks and tokens of a violent death.

After some time they replaced the body in the same position as before, after carefully adjusting the covering of birch-branches; and having filled in the grave, proceeded to bury the monk elsewhere. Meantime the story got wind; and next day the people of the neighbourhood came in crowds to look at the grave. But the sight of the place only raised their curiosity all the more: they brought spades and shovels and began to open the grave anew, determined to see and examine for themselves the body of the bearded giant.

The same marks were in the clay; and as the wondering people dug on and on, the blood and green leaves continued to increase. But when they came to the place where the body had been left the evening before, there they found indeed the branches of green birch lying the whole length of the grave, but no body. There was blood on the branches and blood on the clay beneath; but although the people dug and searched carefully downwards and sideways and all round, they found nothing more. So they closed up the grave and left the place; and from that day to this no one has ever been able to find out anything more about the buried giant of Clonmacnoise.”

I love those stories. TY.
I remember reading the story of my Scottish clan...and how it's first Laird was left as an infant in front of Dunvegan Castle, wrapped in what they now call the 'Fairy Flag'.

The story goes that he was a 'changeling'; a child of the Fae...and that remnants of the Fae swaddling still hang in Dunvegan.
Others say the actual material is a remnant of fabric from a flag during the crusades.

So the rope was cut and the anchor remained?

I’ve just done a search of this and it appears to be a variant on another story relating to a floating ship.

www.libraryireland.com...

Just a fairytale.
Maybe part fairytale and part based on one of the coolest optical illusions: floating ships in the sky:

UFO? Flying Ship? No—It's Nature's Coolest Optical Phenomenon


I'm sure people used to see ships floating in the sky like that on occasion so that much of the story may be based in some truth, but like so many stories that get embellished with more re-tellings of the tale to make it more fantastic, the dropping anchor and man climbing down to free the anchor sounds like a fairy-tale addition.

Fata morgana mirage. I have pictures of Chicago a few days ago and it's 55 miles away.

Hence the reason i said "like a Mirage". LoL

Ive never seen a lot of things, that dont mean they don't exist or can happen.

Was this Celtic monastery next to the sea per-chance?

If so well that's us back to possible naturally occurring optical phenomenon you "Sea".


I don't know of any "natural occurring optical phenomenon" that could explain this. Perhaps you could enlighten us with an example? What do you have in mind?

Your example is probably a very early example of someone inventing a hot air balloon.


This doesn't explain how the guy that jumped from the ship "swam" down to the church doorway to dislodge the anchor.


He was probably on a wire.
If Aliens are still using anchors on ropes...it's likely they aren't advanced enough for interplanetary travel.


Not aliens. Perhaps some sort window opened up where the people at the church could briefly see into another dimension. I wonder what would have happened if they actually seized the man. From what it sounds like, the man that swam down was oblivious to the church people below.

Very cool. Thank you for that information. I'm going to do some research on this topic, this is fascinating.

I'm more inclined to believe the mushrooms in the holy water contaminated thee whole situation as someone else proposed.

But you just fling that window to another dimension assessment in there if it helps.

What if it was a window to the Skin Walker Ranch, that would connect the spurious dots would it not?

I've eaten shrooms hundreds of times. Always with several people. Never once did we all have the same mass illusion together.

This story isn't unique, very similar occurrences have been documented.

That's smashing.

Ever here the phrase "you canny teach your granny how to suck eggs?'

Mass hysteria is nothing new drug induced or otherwise, especially where mass organised religious practice in concerned.

There is also the chance that these things could be spotted because of the way we perceive time with our little monkey brains. It is a bit of an illusion after all. Could a lot of "paranormal" sightings -- big, hairy Bigfoot "cavemen," saucers filled with little humanoids that look like they're from the future, sea and lake monsters, ghosts, time slips, disappearances, etc. -- be a result of our brains catching a little glimpse of an out-of-place moment that is not exactly "now?"

The Chinese and even people in South America were rumored to have manned hot air balloons well before medieval times or the 1700's.

Even Leonardo was messing with hot air balloons.


Chinese lantern's are essentially a hot air balloon, scale them up and you have just that but did they ever make one that could carry a person?.

The Chinese definitely used KITES during battles and sharp eyed spotters would be sent up on these most precarious of contraptions to watch the enemy.

There was a model bird found in Tut's tomb, though missing it's tail plane which apparently broke off at some point when remade the perfect replica flew like a glider when thrown through the air, he also had boomerangs in his tomb.

The Quimbaya Gold Artefacts are another interesting item, these so called ornamental arrow heads have been explained away as humming birds but were they actually model aircraft perhaps based on older model's that may have been based on older models again much as the Portolon maps such as the piri reis map are thought to have been based on earlier more advanced map's going back into antiquity.

Of course if someone in the past had aircraft you would expect airstrip's to still be visible at least in some places though likely most would be long buried.

Mass hysteria is different than mass illusion. The shooter in Vegas created mass hysteria when he started shooting people. What they seen was real and they were all hysterical about it.

Show me an example where dozens of people had the exact same illusion?

How about the The Miracle of the Sun?

Perfect example right there.

There is even a name for shared psychosis or shared delusions called "Folie à deux" or madness for two.

However perspective being what it is no two people ever experience the same thing just down to the very personal nature of the beast in question.

The Miracle of the sun is explained in the name, it is NOT an illusion except for those that do not believe and do not want anything to do with it.

For example one minute they are soaking the next all there clothing is bone dry how does an illusion do that, mass hysteria was just the claim of pseudo scientific quack's whom had no other answer to a genuine miracle experiences by so very many people.

But more recent sightings such as in Egypt and Lebanon if not of the sun have been captured on camera and those were also not mass hallucination.

There is actually no such thing as mass hallucination it is like calling UFO's swamp gas just a way of getting out of it and dismissing the subject as irrelevant or not real.

Plenty of cases of mass hysteria though out recorded history LABTECH767.

As to them being real well same could be said about the ramblings of most organised religious practices like Christianity for instance.


en.wikipedia.org...

Plenty of people say the same regarding UFO's and the like, that being that there is no such thing.

Anyhoo, need to agree to disagree where The Miracle of the Sun, and mass hallucinations, are concerned, given the recorded evidence for such.
