UFOs of the 19th Century

UFO's of the 19th Century, by Cristina Aguil. Very interesting! Several items about UFO sightings from the 1800s. Here's an excerpt:
Most fur trappers may tell tales of Indians, or bears, or mountain lions, but Lumley's account of a flying saucer that crashed into Cadotte Pass was among the most explicit and remains a mystery to this day. It is said that debris from the crash may still be up there, but few there has been no findings since. Nevertheless the story has remained one of the most mysterious of the 1800s.

Lumley was about 175 miles above the Upper Missouri in Great Falls Montana. He was on his way back to his camp site when he saw a "bright luminous body in the heavens." It went rapidly into an eastern direction and was plainly visible for about five seconds. As it flew Lumley saw it burst into an explosion in the sky and he later heard an explosion. It was shortly followed by a strong wind through the forest like a tornado, and the event left the air smelling like sulfur.

UFO is a term used to describe any aerial object that is not otherwise easily explained or described. UFO sightings have occurred throughout history. In fact, paranormal light sightings like shooting stars or the northern lights could be described as UFOs by observers in history who did not know how to identify such occurrences. Photos and video proof of UFO sightings can shed some light on the question, are UFOs and aliens real or an elaborate hoax? Find out more at http://ufos.org
