Location: Nuremberg, Germany
A rare typeset book from 1493 contains what may be the earliest pictorial representation of a UFO.
The book Liber Chronicarum, more commonly known as the Nuremberg Chronicle, describes a strange fiery sphere, seen in 1034, soaring through the sky in a straight course from south to east and then veering toward the setting sun. The illustration accompanying the account shows a cigar shaped form haloed by flames, sailing through a blue sky over a green, rolling countryside.
This may be the first work that actually contains actual illustrations of UFO’s.
