俄罗斯目击不明飞行物的历史悠久，距今已有数千年的历史。 俄罗斯研究者Paul Stonehill与Philip Mantle合著“UFO-USSR”（苏联不明飞行物历史），描述了一件历史：公元950年左右，巴格达哈里发派遣阿拉伯编年史家艾哈迈德·伊本·法德兰（Ahmed Ibn Fadlan）出使保加利亚，在俄罗斯的伏尔加河地区，法德兰描述了他和他的同伴如何目睹“不明形体”在云间的“空中战斗”。 成群的飞行物形成类似于人和动物的编队在天上飞舞，它们彼此互动，融合又分离，持续了很长一段时间。 Stonehill形容这就像一部现代电影。http://www.rolfwaeber.com/mystery/russian-roswell/index.html
4月14日，太阳照常升起，纽伦堡的居民们看到空中动人心魄的壮观景象。刺眼的阳光下，各种形状的UFO正在上演星球大战，有十字架，“飞棍”，圆柱体和飘忽不定的光球，还有一个神秘的黑色大箭头形状的物体，过后不久，城市郊外发生了UFO坠毁。此事史称"1561纽伦堡天体现象"（1561 celestial phenomenon over Nuremberg）。https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1561_celestial_phenomenon_over_Nuremberg?wprov=sfla1en.m.wikipedia.org
7月27日至28日和8月7日，巴塞尔的许多当地目击者报告看到了三种天体现象。 第一个被描述为不寻常的日出，第二个被描述为月全食，伴随红色的太阳升起，第三个被描述为太阳前面异常聚集的的大量黑色球体。此事史称"1566巴塞尔天体现象"（1566 celestial phenomenon over Basel）。
如上图所示，两位史家Samuel Apiarius 与Samuel Coccius把这个历史记录在一本册子上，全文如下：
1566年的7月27日，本来天气晴朗，一切如常，阳光普照在明亮的天空上。然而晚上9点左右，太阳突然改变了不同的形状和颜色。 首先，太阳失去了所有的光芒和亮泽，它大小不及满月，最后似乎渗出了血泪，身后的空气变得漆黑。 这座城市和乡村的所有人都目睹了这个怪现象。 当夜，月亮的情况与此类似，这本是接近满月的日子，它照耀了整个夜晚，仿佛天空几乎是血红色。 第二天是星期日，太阳大约在六点钟升起，样子与昨天日落时相同，它照亮了房屋，街道和周围的景象，一切犹如被染上鲜血，或像火焰般燃烧着。 8月7日拂晓时，我们看到大型黑色球体在太阳前飞来飞去，速度极快，它们纠缠不清，好像在打架一样。 其中许多呈现出炽热的红色，不久后有些光球崩溃而后熄灭。”https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1566_celestial_phenomenon_over_Basel?wprov=sfla1en.m.wikipedia.org

1891… UFO Crash.
在前两天的4月17日凌晨6点，一架不明飞行物撞到法官J.S. Proctor的风车上，导致坠毁事故。 来自附近的Fort Worth 基地的陆军信号服务官TJ Weems调查事件时，认为UFO里的飞行员“不是这个世界上的人物”，可能是”火星人”。他/她已在坠机事故中遇难，并由一位旅行牧师William Russell Taybor，以基督教仪式葬礼被埋葬在附近的Aurora公墓。该墓地现已成为一个历史遗迹，石碑上印刻了相关事件。
坠机残骸被倾倒进风车附近的一口井中，也有一部分和外星人一起埋葬在坟墓中。 Brawley Oates于1935年左右购买了Proctor法官的财产。Oates从井中清除了飞碟残骸，并以井水作为水源，但后来发生了极为严重的关节炎病例， 他声称是之前井中的残骸污染了水氏所致。 结果，1945年，Oates用混凝土板密封了井，并在上面加盖外屋。https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aurora%2C_Texas%2C_UFO_incident?wprov=sfla1

The only occupants in the cave were the sick and the wounded that had been unable to walk. The six able-bodied soldiers that were looking after them said they had been awakened early pre-dawn by a whirring noise outside of the cave and had fired their rifles in the direction of the noise, thinking that it was an armored car. Suddenly the object retaliated by firing jets of flame at the cave entrance. After near suffocation, the soldiers ran out to see the flame throwing UFO ascending into the sky. Clearly visible, it was circular in shape and glowing and of a shiny metal.

This wave of sightings continued for 2-3 weeks. After retirement in 1975, Sheriff W. Clem gave a more graphic description of the UFO he saw: "The object was shaped like a huge football and had bright white lights. No living human could believe how fast it traveled. The thing was as bright as day. It lit up the whole area."

Apr. 1, 1959... Orting, WA: An Air Force C-118 transport plane with four passengers suddenly radioed in "MAYDAY, we've been hit!" Col. R.E. Booth told reporters that a mid-air collision had taken place at 8:19 p.m. APRG (Aerial Phenomena Research Group) investigators determined that from 7:00 p.m. on through the early evening several mysterious aerial explosions had shaken the Seattle, WA, area. Several residents had reported seeing mysterious UFOs from 20 miles north of the crash scene to about 8 miles southeast of it. These sightings were confirmed by the Orting Chief of Police and by Public Information Officer at Mc Chord AFB. Several persons told APRG investigator, R. Gribble, that as the C-118 passed over their area it was followed by 2 parachute-shaped objects and that the C-118 was missing its' tail assembly. Mr. and Mrs. Bill Jones reported 3 or 4 parachute-shaped UFOs following the C-118 as it passed over their home. Chief of Police, Fred Emard, told R. Gribble that he would be glad to furnish information on the UFOs to APRG, but changed his mind the next day after an interview with an Air Force Colonel. "The Chief and other officials of Orting had been silenced," Gribble reported. (see 9/29/59; 5/61)

Sept. 29, 1959... Maj. R.O. Braswell, while flying a C-47 at 6500ft altitude, spotted a UFO. "It was colored like a large red fire and looked like an atomic cloud", he stated. At about 5 degrees above my plane it appeared massive and was at about 13000 ft. alt. The UFO appeared to be about 1000 ft. thick (top to bottom). Billie Guyton of Centerville, TX, also observed the UFO and said that he observed a smaller UFO emerge from it. Another ground observer, Jackie J. Cox, schoolteacher, saw a "bright light in the sky that spread to cover the entire sky." W.S. Webb of Buffalo, N.Y., glanced out his bedroom window and saw a ball of fire shooting through the sky, after which he heard a noise, as if something was falling from the sky. The next day Braniff Airways' Flight 542, carrying 28 passengers and 6 crew members, was found shredded in a thousand pieces. Subsequent inquiry found that there had been no fire or explosion aboard the jet before or after the crash and that scorch marks found on the exterior windows, fuselage and parted tail section showed signs of having been exposed to tremendous exterior heat. Also the force causing the plane to come down did not come from within the plane. Radar Operator, E.H. Tindale, later told investigators that he had plotted an UFO twice on the night Flight 542 crashed. Both plots of the UFO were in the area where the wreckage of the airliner was found. The UFO was stationary both times it was tracked. (see 4/1/59; 5/61)
