Nuremberg - 1561 Germany

In the sky over Nuremberg the real air battle between aircraft of a cylindrical and spherical form on April 14, 1561 was developed, inhabitants of Nuremberg and its vicinities, got used to rise with sunrise, saw a set of strange subjects in the sky. Near the ascended star there were spheres of blood-red, blue and black flowers. Between some of them crosses of a bloody honey agaric were seen. Then in the sky there were two huge pipes in which big and small spheres rotated. All of them as though battled with each other. The show proceeded about an hour, and then "all of them who as though have been torn away by the Sun, came on a silver platter on the earth, like fire, and caused below on the earth huge clubs of a smoke"
