The 1959 Reverend Gill sighting [Redux]
The Gill sighting, which all of you are familiar with, is a good one and is recapped at these web-sites:
I initially thought that Gill and his parishioners may have witnessed a mirage, but Martin Kottmeyer ruled that out in his examination of the sighting:
Reverend Gill is seen recounting the event(s) via a YouTube entry:
This is a credible, honest witness account.
What interests me are several listings in Aubeck/Vallee’s Wonders in the Sky:
One in 749 A.D. Ulster, Ireland where “Ships, with their crews, were seen in the air above Cluain Moccu.” [Page 67]
And France (circa 760) “The air was filled with human figures …” [ibid]
12 May 922 Bulgaria “ … A cloud [was seen] … And lo! [there were] seen in it something like men …” [Page 77]
20 March 1812 near Manosque, France “ … a luminous ball … split into four lights. Four human figures were seen, inside the objects. …” [Page 292]
Beams of light were often observed also, as in the Gill sighting.
There are many more such incidents listed in Wonders …
What does this tells us? That Reverend Gill’s observation and that of his church members is not unique, and may represent a recurrence of a phenomenon or other kind of event that is trying to tell us (humans) something.
