Woodcut prints illustrate UFOs over Germany and Switzerland.

A broadsheet news article was printed and circulated reporting an event that had taken place in the skies over the city of Nuremberg, Germany before dawn on April 14, 1561. The broadsheet featured a woodcut engraving illustrating the “celestial phenomenon” that many who lived in the city, and outside the city gates had witnessed. The woodcut engraving and text were created by Hans Wolff Glaßer. We continue our discussion with the phenomena that continued over Basel Switzerland a few years later recorded with another engraving this time printed in the "Flugblatt of Basel 1566" pamphlet by Samuel Apiarius and Samuel Coccius.
