Summary: The emperor of China is said to have flown in an aerial machine and descended back to earth, (reference: Hervey – Winkler catalog). It turns out that this is a story about Emperor Shun, who supposedly reigned between 2258 and 2208 BCE. However the actual incident has nothing to do with the machine’ account. In the Shi Ji (Historical Records) Sima Qian relates that Shun’s father Gu Sou wanted to kill him. Finding him at the top of a granary tower, he set fire to it. Shun escaped by assembling a pile of large conical straw hats together and leaping down!

Summary: excerpt from an Egyptian papyrus “Tulli Papyrus”– part of the annals of Thutmose III, who reigned around 1504-1450 BCE: “In the year 22 of the 3rd month of winter, sixth hour of the day… the scribes of the House of Life found it was a circle of fire that was coming in the sky… It had no head, the breath of its mouth had a foul odor. Its body one rod long and one rod wide. It had no voice. Their hearts became confused through it; then they laid themselves on their bellies… they went to the Pharaoh… to report it. His Majesty ordered…
[an examination of] all which is written in the papyrus rolls of the House of life. His majesty was meditating upon what happened. Now after some days had passed, these things became more numerous in the skies than ever. They shone more in the sky than the brightness of the sun, and extended to the limits of four supports of the heavens… Powerful was the position of the fire circles. The army of the Pharaoh looked on with him in their midst. It was after supper. Thereupon, these fire circles ascended higher in the sky towards the south… The Pharaoh caused incense to be brought to make peace on the hearth… and what happened was ordered by the Pharaoh to be written in the annals of the House of life… so that it be remembered for ever.”

Even the script was from the wrong Egyptian era. A twelve-dollar treasure map purchased from a street vendor in Barbados has better provenance, yet the Tulli Papyrus keeps coming back like the Mummy’s Revenge.

Summary: Moses is seen brandishing a rod and triggering rains of blood, in an ancient illustration that shows a complex flying object. This picture is taken from the Ashkenazi Haggaciah, in a section showing the Plagues of Egypt (Exodus 5-9). The hand of God at the end of a reddish-brown sleeve is extended below it, pointing to the assembled-and somewhat astonished – Hebrews. A flame is burning atop a nearby column. The illustration represents a well-known event, the Seventh Plague sent against the Egyptians. The arm in the picture is textually referred to as “God’s outstretched arm.”

Date: 460 BCE
Location: Arabian Desert
Summary: The The Egyptian tales of flying snakes captured the curiosity of the Greek historian Herodotus (ca 460 BC). These winged drakontes were said to live under frankincense (Boswellia) trees in the Arabian Desert. To gather the incense, the Arabians burned styrax (resin of the Liquidambar tree) because the smoke drove the winged snakes away. Herodotus described the flying reptiles as small with variegated markings, shaped like a water snake but with wing like membranes, like bat wings.

Location: Sicily, Italy
Summary: In Diodorus Siculus’ first century text Historical Library, (book 16, 24-5) we read that the voyage of Timoleon from Corinth to Sicily was guided by one or more blazing lights referred to as lampas: “Heaven came to the support of his venture and foretold his coming fame and the glory of his achievements, for all through the night he was preceded by a torch blazing in the sky up to the moment when the squadron made harbor in Italy.” Note: This might have been a comet, but it has never been matched with any known cometary object, according to Gary Kronk’s Cometography. P. J. Bicknell, writing in The Classical Quarterly (“The Date of Timoleon’s Crossing to Italy and the Comet of 361 BCE” in New Series, Vol. 34, No. 1, 1984, 130-134) argues that “a cometary hypothesis is barely compatible with the implication of Diodorus’ account that the lampas were visible in the east at nightfall and therefore in opposition to the sun…All in all it is difficult to resist the conclusion that Diodorus (or his source) elaborated on the lampas for dramatic effect…” Bicknell leans towards the interpretation of the objects as a spectacular meteor shower, possibly the Lyrids, which would put the date of his voyage at 21 March 344 BCE However this does not account for a phenomenon seen “all through the night” in a fixed direction.
