Sightings of UFOs in Cornwall are roughly 30% higher than the national average. I have found references to unexplained events, such as strange balls of fire and craft-shaped lights in the skies, as early as the 1880s. And over the years there have been several flurries of UFO activity in Cornwall, in the 1950s, again in the 1990s and some more recently.
Some history of Flying Saucers
Whatever your take on this well known phenomenon UFO (Unidentified Flying Objects) sightings have, some believe, been around for thousands of years.
In the Old Testament the prophet Ezekiel describes a ‘great cloud’ with ‘fire infolding itself’. He writes that this spectacle then became ‘a wheel in the middle of a wheel’ and apparently it then fired lightning bolts to the Earth. According to Bible scripture a voice was then heard which spoke of peace and good will. The encounter left Ezekiel able to see the future, and some conclude his description confirms that a UFO made contact in the Middle East around 1000 BC.
