What happened in Nuremberg in 1561, was it an air battle in the Middle Ages?

UAP, i.e. Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena, or UFOs, i.e. Unidentified Flying Objects, have accompanied humanity for centuries. This is evidenced by records in various chronicles, “holy books” and oral histories. The evidence for the existence of unexplainable phenomena in our times comes mainly from eyewitness testimonies prepared by the police or other governmental or non-governmental organizations. However, the strongest evidence is photographic and film records – access to recording devices nowadays is unlimited.

Are observations of aerial phenomena at a time when it was not possible to record such an event reliable?
Can one person’s message be described as true?
What if such a phenomenon was observed by many people? Did they all experience a collective hallucination?

Such a collective, inexplicable vision occurred between 4 and 5 a.m. on April 14, 1561 in the German city of Nuremberg.

Many Nuremberg residents saw an air battle followed by the appearance of a large black triangular object. Witnesses observed hundreds of spheres, cylinders and other strangely shaped objects moving erratically overhead. The woodcut depicts objects of various shapes, including crosses (with or without balls on the shoulders), small spheres, two large crescents, a black spear, and cylindrical objects from which emerged several small balls that fluttered across the sky at dawn.

The quote comes from a chronicle written by Hans Glaser and can be found in the collection of prints and drawings in the Zentralbibliothek in Zurich, Switzerland:

…balls were flying back and forth, fighting each other fiercely for over an hour. And when the duel both within and outside the sun was at its most intense, the balls began to show weariness to such an extent that, as said above, they fell from the sun to the earth “as if they were all burnt up,” and then languished on the earth with immense smoke. After all this, something like a black spear, long and thick, was seen; the shaft pointed east and the tip pointed west…

If that wasn’t enough, the woodcut illustrating the battle in the sky over Nuremberg shows what people saw at that time and it cannot be simply ignored.

The big question is: what did the inhabitants of Nuremberg at that time see in the sky? Was it the result of a collective hallucination? Or maybe it is an invention of a fairy tale writer of that time?

Was it a close encounter between multiple people and unidentified flying UFOs?

Maybe the whole phenomenon really happened, people saw it and the chronicler wrote down the entire event in his own words, according to the technical knowledge he had at that time.

Of course, I leave the answer to these questions to each of you…
