Wonders in the sky : unexplained aerial objects from antiquity to modern times and their impact on human culture, history, and beliefs by Jacques Vallee( Book )

One of the most ambitious works of paranormal investigation of our time, here is an unprecedented compendium of pre-twentieth-century UFO accounts, written with rigor and color by two of today's leading investigators of unexplained phenomena. In the past century, individuals, newspapers, and military agencies have recorded thousands of UFO incidents, giving rise to much speculation about flying saucers, visitors from other planets, and alien abductions. Yet the extraterrestrial phenomenon did not begin in the present era. Far from it. The authors of Wonders in the Sky reveal a thread of vividly rendered-and sometimes strikingly similar- reports of mysterious aerial phenomena from antiquity through the modern age. These accounts often share definite physical features- such as the heat felt and described by witnesses-that have not changed much over the centuries. Indeed, such similarities between ancient and modern sightings are the rule rather than the exception. In Wonders in the Sky, respected researchers Jacques Vallee and Chris Aubeck examine more than 500 selected reports of sightings from biblical-age antiquity through the year 1879-the point at which the Industrial Revolution deeply changed the nature of human society, and the skies began to open to airplanes, dirigibles, rockets, and other opportunities for misinterpretation represented by military prototypes. Using vivid and engaging case studies, and more than seventy-five illustrations, they reveal that unidentified flying objects have had a major impact not only on popular culture but on our history, on our religion, and on the models of the world humanity has formed from deepest antiquity. Sure to become a classic among UFO enthusiasts and other followers of unexplained phenomena, Wonders in the Sky is the most ambitious, broad-reaching, and intelligent analysis ever written on premodern aerial mysteries

Dimensions : a casebook of alien contact by Jacques Vallee( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and Russian and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the modern UFO era, thousands of honest scientists and informed laymen have seen through the official denials, the suppressions, and the whitewash -- and realized that, indeed, we are not alone. To them, author Jacques Vallee, the world's most renowned UFO expert, presents a tantalizing question. What if -- just if -- these alien visitors are Not from other planets? What if they have always been among us? What if we can finally prove the case to which so much evidence points: That they have lived on earth for centuries, perhaps, from the beginning of time. That they may inhabit another dimension, a dimension so startlingly different from our own that our consciousness lurches to experience it religiously. At once exhilarating and persuasive, Vallee's brilliant insights include a metaphysical odyssey through some of the most mystifying incidents in religious and mythological lore. The miraculous visions of the Lady of Fatima in 1917.The "cloudships" said to have visited medieval France.The ancient Tzeltal Indians of Mexico kidnapped by flying half humans.With his unparalleled knowledge of thousands of close encounters. Vallee -- the UFO authority celebrated in Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind -- constructs an eye-opening, yet ultimately irresistible theory: one that reveals the shocking reality of the ever-present, ever-powerful interdimensional aliens of Earth... and humanity's persistent inability to understand them. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title
