355 years ago, the Swedish fishermen fell ill at the same time when they saw many strange objects (UFOs) dancing in the sky.
In April 1665, the fishermen living near Barhefft reported a strange incident, something they had never seen in their lives.
Around 14:00 on April 8, 1665, flying combat boats appeared in the sky. A military battle broke out in the sky. After the battle, all warships completely disappeared, and around, a flat black object was found in the sky.
This event is captured on the engraving of 1680:
In the book “Der wunder-reiche Überzug unserer Nider-Welt; oder erd-umgebende Lufft-Kreys,” written in 1689 by German scientist Erasmus Francisci (1627 – 1694), it is said:
“After a while out of the sky came a flat round form, like a plate, looking like the big hat of a man… Its color was that of the darkening moon, and it hovered right over the Church of St. Nicolai.
It remained there until the evening. The fishermen were very worried, did not want to take a closer look at the scene and covered their faces with their hands. In the following days, they were sick, their whole body trembled, had headaches and sore legs.”
Scientists at that time could not explain this event on April 8, 1665. Until now, the question of a strange event and the illness of the fishermen remains open.
In June 2015, two U.S. UFO and anomaly experts, Chris Aubeck and Martin Shough described their investigation of this event exactly 350 years later in EdgeScience.
Obek and Shough have different views on this phenomenon.
According to them, it is likely that the fishermen at that time had an illusion with the complex name Fata Morgana. This is a kind of illusion when a visible object appears just above the horizon, in the presence of a mixture of thermal layers in the air.
This illusion often changes, and sometimes it may seem that ships are flying in the sky right above the horizon.
According to scientific reports published by the two American experts in EdgeScience magazine, this strange event that occurred 350 years ago, which is believed to be related to UFOs, still contains many mysterious moments.
Is it just a natural phenomenon or an illusion faced by fishermen? Or is it true that there was an aerial battle of large ships, and then a strange flying object appeared?
UFO events are still the focus of attention of scientists today.
