The Montauk Mystery-Prelude

Play level 0

Colour enhancment of a 16th century woodcut called Nuremberg UFO by Hans Glaser. At sunrise on the April 14, 1561, the citizens of Nuremberg beheld A very frightful spectacle. The sky appeared to fill with cylindrical objects from which red, black, orange, and blue white disks and globes emerged. Crosses and tubes resembling cannon barrels also appeared whereupon the objects promptly began to fight one another. After about an hour of battle, the objects seemed to catch fire and fell to Earth, where they turned to steam. The witnesses took this display as a divine warning. This report is unique in the annals of Ufology, in that it has never been repeated. There is no record of such objects in either local or German national folklore. The surviving Town records from the period, give no indication of any unrest either civil or external. Given the uniqueness of the incident, it appears that something supernatural or paranormal took place.
