Did Ancient Civilizations See UFOs? Unanswered Questions from History explored, to follow. Are UFOs real? Many people believe they’re a figment of the imagination or science fiction, but there are also many who think we’ve been visited in the past by extraterrestrial aliens. Numerous ancient civilizations recorded sightings and encounters with strange, unidentified flying objects (UFOs), so could these be historical accounts of alien visitation? Here are some examples of historical accounts that may suggest ancient civilizations saw UFOs, just as they appear today. If you want to learn more, take a look at this article on history’s most famous UFO sightings.
The Dogon people of Africa
It is believed that the Dogon people of Africa may have first seen unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs) around 1400 CE. The Dogon people live in Mali, and they are known for their rich oral tradition about the star Sirius and its companion star, Sirius B. A French anthropologist named Marcel Griaule spent time with the Dogon people in the 1930s, and he learned about their knowledge of astronomy.
The Nazca lines of Peru
The Nazca lines in Peru are a series of ancient geoglyphs. There are over 800 lines, many of which can only be seen in the right light and at the right time of day. These Nazca lines were created between 500 BC and 500 AD by removing parts of the sand to reveal the white ground beneath. It is widely believed that these lines had an agricultural function, but archaeologists do not have any written evidence to support this idea.
The temple complex at Baalbek, Lebanon
In the United States, we typically associate UFO sightings with isolated areas in the Southwest. But there are significant UFO sighting reports all around the world, including in Lebanon. The temple complex at Baalbek is one such example. With its gigantic stones weighing as much as 300 tons, it was a puzzle for archaeologists who had no idea how ancient people could have moved these enormous blocks so far and put them into place.
The Moai statues of Easter Island
Easter Island is home to some of the most fascinating mysteries in all of history. On Easter Island there are over a thousand Moai statues, and no one knows who created them or why. Hundreds of theories exist about how the Moai were built, but there is still no definitive answer. Another mystery surrounding the island is what happened to its inhabitants. There are many unanswered questions that remain unsolved. Did ancient civilizations see UFOs?
It’s hard to know what ancient civilizations saw in the sky, but it is possible that they saw something we now call UAPs. It’s worth considering the possibility that extraterrestrial life visited Earth in ages past, and that those visits were recorded by our ancestors. In turn, this may have led them to believe they could communicate with otherworldly beings as well. If that theory is correct, perhaps human contact with UAPs has shaped many of humanity’s cultural expressions throughout history.
