This UFO may be fake.
Shen Kuo (1031–1095), a Chinese scholar, recorded the testimony of eyewitnesses who stated that a flying object with opening doors would shine a blinding light from its interior that would cast shadows from trees for ten miles in radius, and was able to take off at tremendous speeds. (UFOs)
In 1492 Christopher Columbus and Pedro Gutierrez, while on the deck of the Santa Maira, saw "a light glimmering at a great distance."
It came and went several times during the night, moving up and down, "in sudden and passing gleams."
It was sighted 4 hours before land was sighted, and seen by Columbus as a sign they would soon come to land.
In 1878, John Martin, a Texas farmer, saw a flying object in the shape of a disk "flying at wonderful speed".
He used the word "saucer" to describe it.
In 1947, the media used the term, "flying saucers", to describe the sighting by Kenneth Arnold.
He was flying his private plane near Mount Rainier, Washington.
He reported seeing nine brilliantly bright objects flying across the face of Rainier. (UFOs)
