Inside ancient UFO sightings from Bible ‘sky chariot’ to ‘alien’ cave …

FROM Bible verses to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, history is complete of strange goings on that alien hunters claim are proof of visits from extraterrestrials.

The earliest records could already be in the form of paintings by our caveman ancestors – perhaps showing that the UFO sightings now unprotected to official probes in Washington and Beijing are really nothing new.


A stone age carving dating from 8,000BC, said to show ‘astronauts’ in northern Italy

Earlier this year, a long-awaited Pentagon report admitted experts could not explain some 144 reports of “unidentified aerial occurrences”.

It was slammed as a “whitewash” by believers already though top brass said they could not rule out an alien origin for the sightings.

Meanwhile the Chinese government has reportedly launched its own UFO investigation after a rush of excitement there.

Military researchers are said to have dubbed them “Unidentified Air Conditions” or UACs.

China and Russia reportedly hope to take the international rule in studying encounters, sparking a bizarre new arms race with the US.

But as these examples show, people have been looking up in surprise for thousands of years.

Stone age ‘astronauts’


‘Heavenly’ figures presented in rock art from Siberia 5,000 years ago

Cave paintings and carvings dating back to 8,000BC have sparked great interest among alien watchers.

Stone age tribes produced thousands of artworks called petroglyphs at Val Camonica in northern Italy.

The most famous depict long-limbed “astronauts” who appear to be wearing globe-shaped helmets with shining lights around them.

Some have claimed them as proof that visitors from outer space made contact and were worshipped as gods.

Meanwhile other cave paintings in Siberia from 5,000 years ago are said to show “heavenly” figures with horns and feathers on their heads.

Experts say the dyes used were made with a complex scientific understanding far beyond what we might expect of Neolithic man.



Did ancient Egyptians worship the sun, or flying saucers?

Carvings from pharoahs’ tombs show shining globes in the sky over awed crowds.

Archaeologists say this is because the ancient Egyptians worshipped the sun.

This has not stopped alien watchers from seeing it as evidence of flying saucers.

And there have long been theories that great monuments such as the Pyramids of Giza were built by aliens.

They claim the pyramids form a map of the stars, and it would have been impossible for humans to have built them so precisely.

Last year the Egyptian government officially denied any extraterrestrial link after Elon Musk tweeted sustain for the theories.

China’s ‘alien’ civilisation


Relics in China are ‘proof’ for some of contact with aliens 3,000 years ago

Bizarre bug-eyed statues found in south-west China have fuelled theories that aliens invaded the country in the Bronze Age.

More than 500 relics made of jade have been unearthed at the site of the former capital of the Xia Dynasty which ruled from 2070BC-1600BC.

The green colour and pointy ears are said to be evidence of contact with another civilisation.

The growing popularity of the theory already led to an official denial of any alien link.

“Some artistically exaggerated goddess statues cannot be said to be ‘aliens,'” said Lei Yu, an archaeologist at the Sichuan Provincial Cultural Relics and Archaeology Research Institute.

Ezekiel’s vision


The Bible’s Book of Ezekiel describes how the prophet saw a flying chariot emerging from a whirlwind and a cloud of fire.

The chariot was carried by four human-like angels each with four faces, and below it were four mysterious wheels.

Scholars claim it was around 593BC in modern day Kuwait. But there has been fierce argue on how to interpret the verses.

Famed Swiss Ufologist Erich von Däniken claimed it was evidence of an alien visitation, instead of a vision from God.

He was so convincing that Nasa scientist Josef Blumrich later wrote a book explaining how such a craft would have operated.

Classical history

Roman chronicler Livy left a fascinating account of “many prodigies” spotted in 214 BC, including “phantom ships” that were “seen shining in the sky”.

The historian Plutarch wrote about an already more exceptional event during a battle in 74BC.

He said “with no apparent change of weather, the sky burst asunder and a huge, flame-like body was seen to fall between the two armies.

“In shape it was most like a wine-jar, and in colour like molten silver.”

Thousands of onlookers, including enemy leader King King Mithridates VI, seemingly confirmed the truth of the story.

Another eminent scholar, Titus Flavius Josephus, wrote about a “miraculous occurrence resisting belief” in the first century AD.

It involved “chariots and armed battalions hurtling by the clouds and encompassing the cities”.

Princess from the Moon


Archives in medieval Japan record how a woman arrived in a strange round canal

One of Japan’s most famous legends dating from around 1,000 years ago tells the story of “The Shining Princess”.

Kaguya is said to have been found as a baby inside a shining bamboo stalk, and when she grows up the Emperor is desperate to marry her.

But she says she is not from the Earth a craft arrives to take her home to the Moon.

Official records tell how a woman did arrive in Japan in a round canal which some claim is a typical flying saucer shape.

The Nuremberg ‘UFO battle’


A newsletter reports sightings of a ‘UFO battle’ over Nuremberg

In 1561, witnesses said they saw the sky filled with bright shining objects in Nuremberg, Germany.

They ranged from “blood-red semi-circular arcs” to dark balls of “black ferrous colour”.

They rushed back and forth and “fighting among themselves”, according to current newsletters.

ultimately they fell onto the earth and “wasted away” with “immense smoke”.

A similar UFO battle was reported five years later in Basel, Switzerland.

observe said numerous red and black balls were “fighting” in the sky over several days, accompanied by uncommon sunsets and sunrises.

ET renaissance


Is this a flying saucer in The Baptism of Christ by Aert De Gelder?

Famous artworks are littered with aliens and UFOs, theorists claim.

One of the most convincing theories surround a painting called The Baptism Of Christ by Flemmish artist Aert De Gelder.

It shows a saucer in the sky shining down beams of light.

Leonardo’s John The Baptist and the Mona Lisa are both said to show alien faces when a filter is applied.

A monastery mural in Kosovo from 1350 showing the Crucifixion is said to show two alien spaceships present.

And a Nativity scene has left Ufologists convinced it shows alien visitors.

The Madonna And Child With The Infant St John, by an unknown Florence artist has a shining eye-shaped saucer over Mary’s shoulder.

Scholars are divided over whether it is meant to be an angel.
