An old Ballad about a UFO sighting
Jerome (Jerry) Clark, who turned to music in his geezer years, provided a ballad (two actually) that referenced a UFO it seems, in this 1985 copy of the International Reporter:
I’ve scanned the page (14) in large scale for those with lame computers so the content can be read. As you can see, the ballad is from the 18th Century (circa 1716 apparently):
I find such items interesting (like as those in Aubeck/Vallee’s Wonders in the Sky and Aubeck/Shough’s Return to Magonia).
Even though some of the old sightings are disputed – all of them cannot be – I think the “reports” are intriguing, without an ET patina or the accretions that have crept into some of the “modern sightings” (Roswell, Rendelsham, et al.).
