In 1665, eyewitnesses watched the “battle of UFOs” and after that fell ill
Not long ago, 1,500 pages of UFO-related research were declassified as part of a FOIA request.
He pointed to 42 cases where humans have suffered injuries after alleged encounters with “anomalous vehicles”, meaning UFOs, as people have been exposed to conditions related to electromagnetic radiation with some allegedly inflicted by “energy-related propulsion systems”.
The document database includes more than 1,500 pages of UFO-related material from the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) – a secret US Department of Defense program that ran from 2007 to 2012.
But it turns out that the negative impact of UFOs on people is not a new phenomenon. Historians are studying a 350-year-old UFO case that remains a mystery to this day.
The incident took place on the afternoon of April 8, 1665, around 2 pm, when a group of fishermen moored near Barhoff witnessed what they described as “ships in the sky” engaged in battle.
“After a while, a flat, round shape appeared from the sky, like a plate or a large man’s hat,” wrote author Erasmus Francis, who collected news about the incident in 1689.
“The object was the color of a darkening moon hovering over the church of St. Nicholas. There, the flying object remained motionless until night. The fishermen, excited to death, no longer wanted to look at that spectacle and covered their faces with their hands.”
According to Francisca’s account, the people who witnessed the objects soon became ill and suffered from tremors and pain in the head and limbs.
The entire incident was later deemed “unexplained” and the cause of the men’s symptoms was never found.
In their June 2015 analysis, researchers Chris Obeck and Martin Shaw looked at several possible explanations for what the fishermen were seeing, but were unable to find a definitive answer.
In the end, they came to the conclusion that it was a UFO sighting, although it is unknown if it was one of the first in history.
