Emperor Theodsius’s UFO Sighting

by Daniel Russ on August 16, 2011

Nurenburg UFOs in 1600s, Just To Make The Point That earlier People Didn't Quite Know What To Make Of UFOs.

One of the things I love to do is order all the free books and the odd books on online booksellers. I often come across things like this from “Wonder of the Sky” A compendium of  thousands of UFO sightings long before Kenneth Arnold saw flying discs over the Cascade Mountains. This is fascinating to me.

 

Source: Conrad Wolffhart (a professor of grammar and dialectics who under the pen name of Lycosthenes wrote the compendium Prodigiorum ac Ostentorum Chronicon, published in 1567):

 

“393 A.D. Strange lights were seen in the sky in the days of the Emperor Theodosius. On a sudden, a bright globe appeared at midnight. It shone brilliantly near the day star (planet, Venus), about the circle of the Zodiac. This globe shone little less brilliantly than the planet, and little by little, a great number of other glowing orbs drew near the first globe. The spectacle was like a swarm of bees flying around the bee-keeper, and the light of these orbs was as if they were dashing violently against each other. Soon, they blended together into one awful flame, and bodied forth to the eye as a horrible two-edged sword. The strange globe which was first seen now appeared like the pommel to a handle, and all the little orbs, fused with the first, shone as brilliantly as the first globe.”
