From The History Channel : "Reports of encounters with strange beings and sightings of mysterious objects in the sky have occurred throughout history. A 13th century historical book, Otia Imperialia, includes an account of a creature descending from a flying craft over Bristol, England. The log from Christopher Columbus' first voyage to America contains a report of strange lights in the sky. Medieval art pieces depict disc-shaped objects floating in the heavens. Sightings of flying cigar-shaped crafts were reported during the Black Plague. And there were even discussions of extraterrestrial life among America's Founding Fathers. Could these sightings, coming from every part of the world, from biblical times to present day, be evidence that aliens have been with us all along?" Written by slostenracing

11 November 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

The first episodes on first season were an introduce of this outstanding series, then the produces allowed to us a special 90 minutes running time, in this episode concerns about close encounters on several places around the world, however firstly they start to speaking about the very first nuclear bomb tested at Alamogordo New Mexico when Oppenheimer was in charge of the whole secret project, but many sources at India and Pakistan area had in the past a city that supposedly was destroyed by nuclear weapon, the whole area has a high levels of radioactivity, still as describe on the old texts of the Marabharata about Gods fighting on Sky, on a sort of flying machines shooting laser beams all around, they crashed on land raise up a strange high dust, also focused on Columbus who saw a light over that come up from the sea and floating on horizon, more, on mid ages several paintings has small flying saucers on skies, and how Noah was born and built a Ark so save the animals, anyway a plot summary of this fabulous doc from History Channel!!!
