UFO Sightings Through Drawings
Other UFO reports I collected came in the form of drawings gathered from a number of books. I felt it was important to display them here because they may not have been mentioned before, or listed anywhere else other than in my private files.
The inhabitants, surprised and frightened, saw that the sky above their city was filled with cylindrical UFOs, from which there emerged black, red, orange and blue-white spheres and disks. The objects seemed to be fighting with each other. April 14, 1561, at Nuremberg, Germany.

A few minutes later, an object shaped like a shell, is seen standing in a field. From its top, a narrow and powerful, luminous beam goes around like a lighthouse in the night.

A moment afterward, the farmer's son notices a light coming in his direction. An oval object, a "saucer" that comes down, settles within 20 metres of him. He sees two domes in which there are two humanoids, each wearing a helmet and dressed in green-colored leotards.

Sighting of two UFOs by a man nicknamed "Doctor X", who wanted to remain anonymous. November 2, 1968.

Afterwards, a sight even more unbelievable offers itself to the eyes of Doctor X: He sees the two antennas penetrating each other, and then, without slowing down, the two UFOs combine and literally merge together to become one object.

Its size is enormous. It is estimated to be about 65 metres wide and 16 metres high, without the antennas.
Observation made by three non-commission officers (N.C.O.) student pilots. October 28, 1969, at Dax, France. Here is a "flying saucer" photographed in 1969, by José Carrasco, from central Brazil.

Observation made by M. Balaguer, at Figeac, France. May 14, 1973. A japanese student, Yoshiaki Kato, was setting up on the balcony of his home to take a few photographs of the Tokyo tower (which serves as an antenna for television and telecommunications). He expected to present a few documents at an exhibition organized by his school. With his camera, he took three snapshots. The young man never noticed anything in particular, but at the same time, his mother and several neighbors were observing some UFOs in proximity of the tower (one of the witnesses immediately informed the local police; an official report proves it). Once the film was developed, Yoshiaki was quite surprised to see these objects appear on his snapshots. September 19, 1973, about 7:30 p.m., in Tokyo, Japan.
Observation made by M. Aiello, investigator from ORESPA. December 22, 1973, near Randan, France. Observation made by M. Adams, near the Mureaux, in France.

Movement of objects observed in the sky above the Yvelines, France. These orange-yellow objects are surrounded by a luminous halo, distorting constantly and resembling a chemical reaction. January 1974.

Phenomenon observed by M. L.R. in the Rambouillet forest, France, on February 5, 1974, about 6:30p.m. At 10 metres from the ground, the object moves silently at a speed of 1 km/h. Its length is estimated at 9 metres. After 30 seconds, the object is hidden from view by the trees and is no longer seen, despite the movement of the witness towards a clearing.
