Truly should thank writers of past generations in that genre fiction was mastered by them relatively late, and he began to gain popularity only to the 30 th year of the century. If the saga of the invasion of space aliens began to appear about fifty years earlier, it would have been no cases to avoid mass panic at the sight of a solemn defile armadas UFO.
There are many cases when there were whole groups of flying objects. In 1104, in England, there was a big sky cigar-shaped object around which revolved more luminous disks.
But the most strange behavior seemed groups of unknown objects, maneuvers that give the impression of confrontation between the two. Here are some examples of these "battles."
In the summer of 1355 a lot of people watched over England to a large number of objects, light blue and red. These objects were moving across the sky in all directions, and the impression that they have entered into mutual combat. Then the "army" red objects become triumph over blue that quickly dropped to the ground.
In April 1561 over Nuremberg, a large number of flying "plates" and "cross" and two huge cylinders of which flew out of the balls. At the same time there were numerous spheres and discs, colored red, blue and black. They are all arranged in the sky kind of air combat, citing the horror of the whole population. An hour later the objects began to fall and fall to the ground in flames, killing each other.
In August 1566 over Basel also observed in the sky big "inclined pipes", of which there were balls. At the same time it was observed near a large number of black spherical bodies flying at high speed toward the sun. After some time, they made a half turn and began to deal with each other, as if depicting the battle. Some of the objects becomes a flame red and like "eat each other."
In the XIX and early XX century. was recorded a number of observations of large groups of any unknown objects, which sometimes flew systems. They first demonstrated their mass in September 1820 then on the French town of Embrun smooth formation flying strange, like a bell, objects, who have published a lot of noise. Making a 90-degree rotation without breaking down, they flew away. Arik famous astronomer wrote about this case in the "Annals of Chemistry and Physics": "Numerous observers have seen during a lunar eclipse, strange objects moving in straight lines. They were at equal distances from each other and kept order, making turns with military precision."
In September 1851 over Hyde Park in London during the World Expo More than one hundred luminous disks that flew from the east and from the north, and then got together and flew away. In August 1871 astronomer Truvle reported mass emergence of Madonna (Latvia) at high altitude flying objects with triangular, round and rectangular in shape and is moving at different speeds. One of the objects lost maneuverability and began to fall, making the movement falling leaf.
In August 1883 the Mexican astronomer Jose Bonilla photographed several groups of round and cigar-shaped objects flying formation at the same distance from each other and slowly crossed the disk of the sun from east to west. Each group of 15-20 objects, and only 283 Bonilla counted object. The next day he saw another 116 such objects. In the French magazine "Astronomy" of their distance from the earth was estimated at about 300,000 miles.
September 21, 1910 about a million people in New York in three hours observed flying over the city hundreds of round glowing objects to write about then the whole world press.
Of particular interest is the phenomenon observed by February 9, 1913 over North America and the western Atlantic. According to Professor Hunt and Toronto univeriteta Englishman Dening, summarized the testimony of hundreds of witnesses, the phenomenon is as follows.
Residents at 21.05 Central Canada observed in the north-western part of the sky bright-red appearance of the body with a long tail, followed then successively appeared about 10 "waves", each of which was a 20-40 objects flying in groups of 2, 3, 4 properties. Thus, in total, has flown more than 300 luminous objects, whose disappearance was accompanied by rumbling sound. The total duration of the observation of phenomena for certain groups of observers was more than 3 minutes.
From the combination of observations with 143 points in the Americas and on the ships that were then in the Atlantic Ocean, it was found that these objects flying in a straight path from Saskatchewan through the area in New York and Bermuda to Cape Sao Rock on the east coast of Brazil.
In the astronomical literature, this phenomenon is called "fireballs Hunt" or "Procession Kirillid" although his performance contradicted bolide flight characteristics. Suffice it to say that the length of the trajectories of objects in the atmosphere was more than 9000 km, while the maximum recorded length of the bolide flight in near-Earth space is only 2,400 km. Flying height of these objects, according to Hunt, is about 40 kilometers, and according to Hofmeister and Davidson — about 70-80 km, and their trajectory parallel to the earth's surface, while altitude fireball is much larger and their trajectories as usually directed at an angle to the surface ("falling fireballs").
All witnesses described phenomenon also noted that a group of these objects were moving slowly and majestically, speed, flight duration was 8-10 km / s, while the speed bolide flight is several tens of km / s, and the duration of follow — just a few seconds. What is surprising is the fact that there were no observations of one drop of "fireballs".
Hunt suggested that it could be a group of small celestial bodies, flying past the Earth and captured it, with the result that they have acquired a circular orbit parallel to the earth's surface. But other scholars such as Davidson, Hofmeister and Fischer argued that air resistance would prevent the usual space bodies to make such a long flight in the atmosphere, because they had to burn down or fall to the ground. Clear explanation for this phenomenon has not been received.
The most amazing thing is that after 5 hours of observation, that is, at 2.30 am, exactly on the same path again flew several groups of similar objects, though the Earth during that time managed to turn up to 75 degrees. It is rather strange as well, that the next day (February 10 at 2 pm) Toronto residents watched span 07.08 dark objects first from west to east and then east to the west.
Flying groups of unidentified objects in the history of the period were also observed in 1796, in Canada, in 1808 in Sweden, in 1845 m in England, in 1849, in Switzerland, in 1877, in France, in 1880 Germany and in 1895 in Mexico.
Deserve special consideration cases where the spans of unknown objects led to the destruction of human settlements and were accompanied by the loss of life. It is assumed that the real cause of the "Great Fire" in Chicago October 8, 1871 was a huge flight of the fireball, which is on its way destroyed several villages. The heat emitted by this ball, was so strong that under its influence was burning even marble and metal pontoon on the river was fused into a monolith. Interestingly, after the flight of the ball in the vicinity of Chicago, were found hundreds of bodies of people killed not by the fire, and for some unknown reason.
That same night, the balls are passed over Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana and Illinois, and in the city of Green Bay, died 1500, and in Pestigo and Chicago — in 6000.
In another case that occurred in 1886 in Maracaibo (Venezuela), under the influence of an unknown oval object hovering near the house, the bodies of nine people who were inside the house, there were tumors that disappeared the next day, leaving black spots. For nine days, these people do not feel, but on the tenth day of the affected areas were fester, creating open wounds, and people began losing his hair.
At the same time all the trees that were around the house, dried, and they also cause black spots. All the victims were sent to the hospital and survived.
