One of the earliest of documented sightings of aerial phenomena took place on April 4, 1561 at dawn over Nuremberg, Germany. What was described as a war in the heavens, with a wide variety of craft ranging from spheres to spear-like cylinders to crosses and “plates”.
The sky was apparently filled with the machines, clashing in battle for well over an hour. The battle was such that a winner was perceived as well. Spheroid UFOs were seen emerging from cylindrical ‘motherships’. At the conclusion of the battle, it seems a magnificent, black, spear-like super-ship of some kind came upon the scene. An ancient woodcut was created by Hans Glaser to document the event. READ MORE
Nuremburg 1561 UFO “Battle” Debunked?
Unfortunately, despite being very convincing proof of aliens at first glance, and after a superficial perusal of the facts (which is all I and many ever do) seemingly confirming a space oddity, the most likely explanation is rather mundane. The best possible explanation for the Nuremberg 1561 UFO Battle is merely several atmospheric phenomena, most notably a “sundog” or “parhelion,” which kicked the whole thing off. by Frank Johnson - READ MORE

Moremi Ajasoro was a member-by-marriage of the royal family of Emperor Oduduwa (the progenitor of the Yoruba people). She was the wife of King Oranmiyan of Ife (later Oyo). She also had a son named Olurogbo (Ela). During her time, Ife was being raided by group of people known as “forest people” (Igbo; scholars believe that these people are not in anyway related to the Igbo people of South-Eastern Nigeria). The people of Ife believed that the Igbo people were sent by the gods as punishment for their sins. So they offered sacrifices to the gods, but the raids did not stop.
Moremi wanted to change the destiny of her people and so, she promised to give everything she had to the spirit of the river Esimirin in hopes that she could discover the secrets of the Igbo people. Then she allowed herself to be taken prisoner by the Igbo during one of their raids. Because of her beauty, she was given to the King of the Igbo people as a slave. She gained the respect of all because of her intelligence and her kind heart. Later on, she married the King of the Igbo and became his Queen.
Over time, she learnt their traditions and customs of warfare. She realized that before a battle, the Igbo people would cover themselves from head to toe with Ekan grass and bamboo fibre. Moremi noted that if the people of Ife attacked the Igbo people with lighted torches, they could be easily defeated. When she had an opportunity, she escaped from the Igbo and returned back to her first husband, King Oranmiyan of Ife who reinstated her back as the Princess Consort. Later on, the Igbo were defeated because of the information Moremi had provided.
She remembered that she had to fulfill her promise to the spirit of the river Esimirin. She offered many animals to the spirit, but they were not accepted. The Ifa priests told her that the spirit would only accept her son Olurogbo as sacrifice. Unwillingly, she eventually accepted her fate and sacrificed her son. The people of Ife wept for Moremi, and promised to be her sons and daughters forever to make up for her loss.
