A video on YouTube chronicles 17,000 years of UFO sightings and the ancient humans who documented them, all the way back to the cave painters of southern France. It certainly puts today's explosion of sightings in proper perspective.
The slide show collection in the video below was compiled by curators at the website ConspiracyCollege.com and is certainly worth the 10 minutes it takes for each of the more than a dozen pictures included.
With no narration, or music soundtrack, the pictures speak eloquently for themselves. It's astounding to see the earliest depictions, crudely drawn images which have not been put into the proper context until recently. Probably because observers had no real idea what they were looking at.
But it becomes clear in light of the current UFO debate, that of wondering if extraterrestrial visitors have ever landed on Earth or whether today's sightings are the result of exotic, secret new military technology.
The objective viewer may conclude that there is more to the story than, literally, meets the eye. It just goes to show that older civilizations were just as clueless when it came to strange phenomena in the skies.
And just as artistic and inspirational.
Here's the video:
