The first UFO sighting on the moon occurred in 1668, and it was recorded in the NASA archive

Throughout the Middle Ages, visions of strange events were almost always attributed to God or the supernatural. What people could not explain was immediately elevated to the status of the divine. As society developed and new technologies emerged, things began to change, and critical thinking gradually took hold of society.

Moving into the early modern period of the 17th century, people began to look more and more at science and the stars in search of answers. New questions arose that neither God nor religion could answer.

The first UFO sighting on the Moon occurred in 1668, and it was recorded in the NASA archive. With the invention of the refracting telescope in 1608, people became obsessed with the stars, looking up at the sky for answers. They searched the night sky for clues that would help answer questions that had remained unanswered for centuries.

UFO sightings on the Moon

When people started using telescopes, they started seeing things they couldn't explain.

One of the most interesting UFO sightings on the moon's surface occurred in 1668 when colonial preacher Cotton Mather saw a strange shape on the moon's surface. According to reports, Cotton Mather is believed to have said that he was looking through a telescope at the Moon, and saw flying light over the Moon's surface.

More interestingly, if it weren't for NASA, this UFO sighting would have ended up being forgotten.

If you look at NASA's chronological catalog of lunar events, you'll find that in November 1668, a New England preacher, the Reverend Cotton Mather, said that he observed the Moon through his telescope and saw a "star point" of light moving across the lunar surface.

And while we can't know what Cotton Mather saw in 1668, we have to admit that there are a huge number of natural atmospheric phenomena that can appear as bright lights in the night sky, and Mather may have seen one such event.

It is also a well-known fact that there are a number of terrestrial phenomena that can "materialize" in the form of luminous balls and when viewed from a distance and through a telescope, can look like stars. Today, for example, there are many people who have seen objects that they cannot explain by observing the Moon from their yard.

From mysterious saucer-shaped objects to lights and shadows moving on the moon, UFO sightings on Earth's natural satellite have become commonplace. However, it is noteworthy that such a prominent religious figure as Cotton Mather reported such a vision not as a vision from God, but as an astronomical event. As an unknown event.

After Mather observed the moon in 1668, more and more people began to report strange things on the moon. In 1783, astronomer Sir John Herschel (the man who discovered the planet Uranus) reported seeing bright lights during an eclipse-with an approximate brightness of +4.

Four years later, in 1787, Sir John Herschel reported seeing objects on the moon's surface that glowed like " burning coal."

In 1784, the Astronomer Royal, the Reverend Nevil Maskelyne, reported to the Royal Society that he had seen " lights in the dark part of the moon“.

In November 1821, Sir John Herschel again reported seeing strange lights “three times in a row."
