In the ancient Indian tradition speaks of a mysterious creature that "once there was a settlement kayapos." Aborigines call it Bep Kororoti. The stranger was wearing a "bo" — a suit that covers him from head to toe. He was holding a "cop", "thunder weapon." When this creature came to the village, the inhabitants terribly frightened and hid. However, there were brave men, who began to attack the alien.
But they were not able to cause at least some damage, "the messenger of heaven." Their clubs and spears just crumbled when touched with the "bo". Bep Kororoti was "good god." To show their power to the people, he raised the "cop — the weapon of Thunder", sent him to a tree, and it turned into ashes, sent him to a rock, and he crumbled.
Bep Kororoti remained in the village and held there for many years. He taught residents assume showed how to heal wounds, improved ways of hunting and brought many changes in the life of the tribe. However, hunting with the others, he never "ate a meal kayapos." After a while, "the messenger of heaven" married by his wife of a young girl from a family, and soon had Bep Kororoti had children.
Legends say that the new kayapos were "not like everyone else" and much smarter than the rest of the residents. Bep Kororoti made sure that the knowledge he passed on to the tribe, not lost. For this, he "gathered a few young men and women and trained them in all sorts of tricks." Once "the messenger went to heaven on high mountain to climb with her to heaven." Almost all of the tribe went with him to pursue his benefactor. Bep Kororoti went up the mountain, where the "cloud came down to it, there was thunder, lightning flashed," dust and smoke enveloped all those present. "In a burning cloud," and disappeared Bep Kororoti high above in the sky … Aborigines did not forget his "teacher."
Up to the present time the Indians kayapos the custom according to which there are celebrations in honor of "God Bep Kororoti." Indians weave palm leaves ritual garments that symbolize the image of the deity, his suit "bo". Kayapos dress up in them and perform various ritual dances. In the hands of the dancers hold palm sticks that represent a mysterious weapon "cop." According to the researchers, ritual clothing Indians strikingly resemble modern space suits.
In the legends of the tribe of Brazilian Indians tupanimba says Montagnier of the mighty god who created the universe and man. According to the legends of the tribe, the god Monan lived in those days among the people who revered him. But then people began to "live not by the precepts of Mona" and ignore them. Enraged Monan went to heaven "in a huge cloud of blazing fire" and decided from there to punish people for their sins and transgressions. He was sent to Earth "heavenly fire" that destroyed all the people. Only one person spared Monan. His name was Ira-Mare, and he was pardoned for the "great reverence" deity. Once the fire ceased to rage, took Erin-Mare as his wife one of the daughters Montand and descended to earth to continue the human race.
A small tribe living on the banks of the river Hingu (a tributary of the Amazon), in their legends tells the amazing facts about the history of mankind. According to their legends, in ancient times, people lived "on a distant star." Once assembled all the inhabitants of stars on board to select a new location. One of the "Indians" told his brothers about the unusually beautiful planet on which he was able to visit one day, passing through the "hole" in the sky. After his message board has decided to settle on the Earth. The entire population of stars took to spin cotton thread on which they had to slow down to Earth. Soon, most of the "Indians" moved on "beautiful planet." The new inhabitants of the earth due to this mysterious filaments are constantly in contact with the star on his remaining brothers. But the evil demon cut this thread, and the "Indians" have never been able to more than meet their "star family."
Tales of inhabitants of the African continent, thousands of miles away from America, also tell us about the events, surprisingly reminiscent of the legend of Brazilian Indians. In African mythology says that in ancient times, "the children of God lived with his father in heaven in the world, wealth and happiness." But one day God decided to test their children and sent them to Earth, banning the "salt of the earth is." Descended "children of God" from the heavens on a thread that wove for their father. But almost all the children have forgotten the covenant of his father and tried the "salt." When they decided to go up again into heaven, the thread broke, and they were forced to stay on Earth forever. Only one of the "sons" fulfilled the covenant of his father and returned safely to heaven.
In the ancient Tibetan texts "Kandshur" and "Tandshur" stored in the caves of Buddhist monasteries, speaks of flying machines, like a pearl in the sky and on the transparent spheres, in which the "Yuga people show up occasionally." The oldest written source, which contains descriptions of UFO sightings is the papyrus found in the collection of Professor A.Tulli, director of the Egyptian department of the Vatican museum, which was written in the XV century. BC, during the reign of Thutmose III. In the papyrus reads: "In the twenty-second year, the third month of winter, at 6 pm, the House of Life scribes saw in the sky a moving circle of fire … It measures were elbow to elbow length and width … They prostrated themselves and reported to Pharaoh, and he thought about it event … After a few days these things in the sky were numerous and shone brighter than the sun … And the pharaoh with the army looked at them. By evening fire circles ascended higher and moved towards the south … From the sky fell volatile matter … This did not happen with the very foundations of the earth … And Pharaoh burn incense to the gods, and commanded to place the incident in the annals of the House of Life. "
Repeatedly mentioned about flying through the sky unknown disc-shaped objects found in the chronicles of Alexander the Great. The most interesting description is given in the "History of Alexander the Great," written by Giovanni Droysenom. It refers to 332 BC, when there was a siege of the Phoenician city of Tyre Macedonians. One day the camp Macedonians suddenly appeared five "flying shields" to move the triangular formation in the sky, and the object moving in the head, was about twice the others. In front of thousands of astonished men these "shields" slowly circled over Tyre, and then have a flash of lightning, which formed a wall outlet. Pleased with the Macedonians rushed to the assault, and "flying shields" continued to circle over the city until it was completely captured. Then they went with great speed up and disappeared.
Flights any unknown objects were observed in ancient Greece. Thus, the Greek philosopher Anaxagoras, who lived in the V century. BC, saw the sky object the size of a large "timber" that hung motionless for a few days and radiating an unusual glow. Another Greek philosopher Seneca, who lived in the 1st century BC, in his book "Questions of naturalism," he wrote, "In our time more than once observed the sky in the bright days of light beams that crossed the sky from east to west or vice versa … to This class contains the objects described Posidonius: pillars and billboards in flames, and other luminous objects … These lights appear in the sky, not only at night but during the day, and is neither a star nor of the heavenly bodies … ".
One of the characteristic descriptions placed in the Greek stories of Plutarch. It is recorded that in 102 BC the sky naditalyanskimi cities of America and Turdent there were huge and fiery darts "shields" that initially moved separately and then joined together. In this case, some of the objects passed each other, although there was not much confrontation. Among the moving bodies were cigar-shaped objects, and disc-shaped. The second case, described by Plutarch, occurred in 73 BC near the Dardanelles, where the troops of the Roman general Lucullus and King Mithridates of Bosporus were preparing to join the battle: "… Suddenly all of a sudden the sky opened and the fire seemed great a body similar to the barrel, which swept down into the gap between the two armies. Frightened by this sign, opponents went without a fight. "
Especially a lot of reports of mysterious flying objects round found in the writings of the Roman historians and writers from Julia Obsekuensa — 63, Tit Libya — 30, in Cicero — 9, Pliny the Elder — 26, with Dio Cassius — 14. Aristotle called them the heavenly disks, and Pliny in the second volume of his "Natural History" gave the following classification of observed while luminous objects "diskoidy" — shaped discs amber color with a small amount of waste from them rays "pitei" — barrel-shaped or round shape; "Surat" — shaped horns "lamps" — in the form of a burning torch. In describing these objects Roman authors compared their usual with such well-known concepts such as the sun, moon, round boards, logs, etc. Overall analysis of 50 works of Roman authors show that it describes the appearance of lights in the sky — 39 times, flying "shields" — 11, fireballs — 8, two or more suns — 12, the night "Sun" — 5 and unknown objects — 7 times.
In ancient Christian sources also found the description of any unknown flying objects resembling modern UFO. For example, chapter 5 of the book of the prophet Zechariah describes a "flying barrel" and elsewhere in this book says that Zechariah saw in the sky object of cylindrical shape, about which an angel told Zacharias that it is "a curse that will forever hang over the Earth." In the book of Daniel says that he saw in the sky "wheels of fire." In the famous "Qumran scrolls" is about how Eve saw a fiery chariot that carried the four shining through the clouds eagle, and Adam, some of which landed this aircraft, clearly saw the smoke made its way between the wheels. Remained very rare reports of sightings of unknown flying objects in the first centuries of our era. Here is one of them: "In 235, China over the location of the commander of troops Lianzha about Wei-nan appeared fiery red" meteor ", coming from the northeast to the southwest, and the rays are emitted dagger. Three times he landed the troops Lianzha and behind them, moving back and forth. "
It is also interesting that in the traditions of the North American Indians, according to the candidate of historical sciences V. Bilinbahova, also mentioned in the ancient observation flights of any round objects. Thus, in the Indian legends of Wyoming said that many moons ago from the sky sailed big "wheel" and Shamanic landed on top of the mountain, and then flew away at a speed of a frightened bird. And in the Indian legends of Minnesota and Canada, commented that "long before the Europeans arrived there were flying round the silent wagons which could land on the sea."
