At 05:03 three minutes, the nucleus unexpectedly exploded with a noise similar to thunder, producing a glow so intense that it lit up the sea.

There is a natural tendency, stimulated by the term flying saucer, to imagine that alien ships are all round or discoid, in that classic format immortalized by cinema. This, however, is not true. Sightings of vehicles of the most diverse appearances have already been recorded, and in times that are not ours. There are old notes, mainly European, that indicate the presence of UFOs since at least the 13th century.
Long before the famous 1989 UFO wave in Belgium, where several triangular UFOs were seen for several months in all parts of that country, flying triangles had been spotted on numerous other occasions and at times when thinking of military prototypes would be complete nonsense. — an imposing series that shows something anomalous running through the skies of our planet.
Of course, there are many records prior to these cited and that, in fact, talk about shields, carts, cars and flying wheels. And if we take into account certain petroglyphs and images taken on cave walls, UFOs have been with us for hundreds of thousands of years. In this article, however, we are going to focus on triangular-shaped flying objects and try to find out from when they started to roam our planet.
On December 17, 1852, Francis Seymour Higginson, Commander of the United Kingdom Coast Guard, was on the outskirts of Dover at 2:00 am. There was a lot of wind and the atmosphere was particularly electric, shot through at certain points by unexpected glows of anomalous red. As the hours passed, the bright reflections increased and induced the commander to better observe what was happening.
Then he realized that the phenomena came from a kind of cloud in the sky in a perfectly triangular shape and that it emitted an uncomfortable sound. At 05:00 the cloud got very close and the sound coming from it got stronger and stronger – at the same time, the light rays were bigger and Higginson noticed, in the center of the cloud, a kind of luminous red nucleus, from which they originated. the sparkles.
At 05:03 three minutes, the nucleus unexpectedly exploded with a noise similar to thunder, producing a glow so intense that it lit up the sea. The body of what Higginson considered at that moment to be a meteorite, exploded into multiple small pieces that fell into the water, over a very vast piece of sea. This particular report is contained in the Philosophical Transaction of the Royal Society of 1853 and provides the first-hand testimony of Commander Higginson.
