UFO Dogfight over Nuremberg (1561)

In 1561, Hans Glasser, an illustrator and resident of Nuremberg, Germany, witnessed what could only be called the first alien dogfight over the skies of his native city. Glasser wrote that "this dreadful apparition occurred on the sun, and this was seen in Nuremberg in the city, before the gates and in the country -- by many men and women." He goes on to say that "the globes flew back and forth among themselves and fought vehemently with each other for over an hour … they became fatigued to such an extent that they all … fell from the sun down upon the earth as if they all burned, and then eventually wasted away on the earth with immense smoke." The scene he described is obviously of a battle that took place in the skies and a subsequent crash. The scene impressed him so much that he made an engraving showing several enormous objects: Globes, airplane-like flying crosses, and long cigar-shaped tubes engaging in air combat. Two of the objects in the illustration have crashed and left smoking wreckage on the ground. The scene was reported in two German broadsheets of the day, now preserved in a Zurich library. Famed psychoanalyst Carl Jung wrote about the event and attributed it to a symbolic vision from Mankind’s collective unconscious.
