UFO Sighted in Basel Switzerland

At dawn on August 7th, 1566, UFO's were sighted over Basel, Switzerland.

A contemporary report by Samuel Coccius, in the city's gazette, read:

  • At the time when the sun rose, one saw many large black balls which moved at high speed in the air towards the sun, then made half-turns, banging one against the others as if they were fighting a battle out a combat, a great number of them became red and igneous, thereafter they were consumed and died out.
