NASA has published a report concerning ancient Roman UFO accounts, the report entitled “Unidentified Flying Objects In Classical Antiquity” was compiled by Richard B. Stothers. Stothers, who was a graduate of Harvard, had four papers published in the Astrophysical Journal, and was also a member of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies until his death in 2011. The following is an extract from the report: A combined historical and scientific approach is applied to ancient reports of what might today be called unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Many conventionally explicable phenomena can be weeded out, leaving a small residue of puzzling reports. These fall neatly into the same categories as modern UFO reports, suggesting that the UFO phenomenon, whatever it may be due to, has not changed much over two millennia. Throughout recorded history, reports of what we today might call unidentified flying objects have been made and preserved. If more information were available to us, we would perhaps find that conventional scientific hypotheses could explain most, if not all of these. Certainly this has turned out to be true of most reports from better-documented periods. More via EUTimes.net.
