The UFO Battle Over Nuremberg, Germany (video)
The celestial UFO phenomenon over Nuremberg was a mass sighting of celestial phenomena or unidentified flying objects (UFO) above Nuremberg, Germany in 1561. The phenomenon has been interpreted by some modern UFO enthusiasts as an aerial battle of extraterrestrial origin. This view is mostly dismissed by skeptics some referencing Carl Jung’s mid-twentieth century writings about the subject while others find the UFO phenomenon is likely to be a sun dog.
A broadsheet news article printed in April 1561 describes a mass sighting of UFOs The broadsheet illustrated with a woodcut engraving and text by Hans Glaser. The document is archived in the prints and drawings collection at the Zentralbibliothek Zürich in Zürich, Switzerland.
According to the broadsheet around dawn on April 14, 1561, residents of Nuremberg saw what they described as an aerial UFO battle followed by the appearance of a large black triangular object and then a large crash outside of the city. The broadsheet claims that witnesses observed hundreds of UFO spheres, UFO lights, UFO cylinders and other odd-shaped objects that moved erratically overhead. The broadsheet describes UFO objects of various shapes including crosses globes two lunar crescents a black triangle UFO spear and tubular UFO objects from which several smaller round objects emerged and darted around the sky at dawn.
According to author Jason Colavito the woodcut broadsheet became known in modern culture after being published in Carl Jung’s 1958 book “Flying Saucers A Modern Myth of Things Seen in the Skies”, a book which analyzed the archetypal meaning of UFOs. More recently the event has been classified as a UFO sighting by many and even named the UFO Battle over Nuremberg.
