All be it, the clouds don't really resemble UFO's, they are just clouds Depictions of the heavens and nothing more.

Unless clouds held some sort of special significance to the artist's culture.
I haven't been able to watch the video yet, but I could think of something that the large oval shaped object in the sky radiating beams of light could be...the sun.

I find it interesting that people will follow religion based on the writing of the ancients alone without any other proof but not ET contact. very interesting indeed.

A lot of this is misunderstood symbolism or other objects entirely... For example, the image in the opening petroglyph is more likely an image of the moon. The Egyptian heiroglyphs are really just the top glyphs worn away revealing previous glyphs underneath. (the Egyptians were very into revisionist history).
Other symbolism such as the Holy Ghost being depicted as a luminous disk in the sky (enlarged halo), anthropomorphic man, different representations of the sun and moon, etc. are often mistaken for UFOs in art. Because art is so subjective, it can really only serve as anecdotal evidence... Ancient literary accounts are much more enlightening.
