Reports of strange cities , floating in the sky , were frequent until the beginning of XX century. For example, the R.T. Anikevich , in his book that published in 1907 said some twenty years ago, the priest A. Kurnevich , traveling from land to land in broad daylight he saw “the city with churches and huge houses .” In recent years, such stories are a fair amount of skepticism. At the same time , in our days in Nigeria was one mass observation of such “ floating city .”
If you believe an article published in «Peoples Daily», it happened in the border village Doolan , located in the state of Bauchi (Nigeria ) in March 2011 . Said Misha has just completed the morning prayers at the local mosque and was preparing to heat the furnace to work ( he sells hot tea ) . Suddenly, Sayid noticed pervading and extremely bright light enveloping everything , and suddenly realized that this is heaven itself fell on his village . He also overcame fear and looked at the sky .
– There appeared something wide and vast . It looked like a cloud , appeared out of nowhere and slowly flew over the village at the height of the trees. The cloud was clear , and I saw a beautiful high-rise buildings within it , as well as roads with cars . It really was like a flying city . And from him I heard the noise of cars , as if I was on ashaka cement plant – told the Observer .
If Saeed was the only witness to this phenomenon , in his words could be doubted. But the ” floating city ” saw hundreds of residents of the village and surrounding neighborhoods , including the imam of the mosque in the village .
A local farmer , Mohammad Daud , in turn, told of how he saw ” the cloud .” Daud said that when he looked up and saw an object moving slowly over the village , he was very surprised , but he was not scared . He explained in detail how saw the color of buildings , which ” weave ” of the other moving and massive clouds. Another resident , Ibrahim , a boy of ten years , pointed to the tops of the trees and said that ” an unidentified flying city” passed them and appeared on the other side , but the crown did not swayed .
– We believe that this is a sign that soon something significant to happen in this small village. Something like a big invention, which subsequently affect the lives of all mankind – said Yau in Kaugama, the politician who accompanied reporters edition «Peoples Daily», to make a report about the incident. Imam Mallam Shehu Liman confirmed the general opinion of the villagers, and in particular said he believes that God used these visions to open our eyes, which could now be seen as the jinn (spirits) live in our own world.
Exactly two weeks after the appearance of the village , flying object visited her again at the same time and remained in the sky for nearly an hour before again disappeared . Responding to a question whether to make a formal complaint or report to the local authorities , the imam said that they see no need for such a statement , as a flying object is not harming anyone and everyone was convinced that it was definitely a positive visit, rather than negative .
In general , the phenomenon really falls under the category of UFOs , which are widely known and are described in the West , but on the African continent for them is much less information . According to some researchers , the incident also showed the influence of religious beliefs and socio-cultural factors in the person’s perception of this phenomenon. But local people sincerely believe that they were actually witnessing ” an act of divine will .”
It is interesting to trace the parallels of these visions with the idea of fairyland where supposedly are not only flying cities , but also the “Flying Dutchman” , a demonic black carriage , The Wild Hunt , ” ships of souls” , etc. Sometimes in this wonderful world it opens a window and then surprised observers can witness the unusual picture or mirages from other worlds . Many features that combine the vision with a UFO , indicate their common origin .
Cities in the sky , airships and ghost ships changing external form , which manifests itself in the typical appearance of the era . Thus, according to researcher Peter Rogerson , today something that filled ghost ship sense disappeared, as they should feed her culture . Only the memories that look like random anomaly. Such anomalies are no longer associated with the myth , because so great is their disturbing power. They invade the reality of nothingness , but still very strong.
Also noteworthy similarities with a number of celestial phantasmagoria archetypes death. They invade our world , bring their dead , which destroy crops , and then on to ” the other world ” consume them as food. Such views are characteristic of most archaic societies and form the basis of the sacrifice ceremonies . On the other hand , they reflect the age-old theme of eternal undead caused by a violation of a taboo.
Ghost town , which appeared after heavy rains in the Chinese city Huanshan (2011) . Scientists have found it a giant mirage amazing clarity .
On the one hand such visions must be treated as materialized the archetype , and on the other , if they continue to appear , no doubt should continue to follow their evolution in different regions of the world . And appears, it’s something related to sound in the sky recently, if you think it carefully.
