The Voronezh UFO Landing, 1989

4 Просмотры
By popular request, I did my next case review on the famous UFO landing in Voronezh, Russia. The story is spectacular in its own right, and I tried to do it justice in my retelling, but I've also chosen to use it as another example of the way in which modern encounters with "aliens" resemble centuries-old encounters with fairies and goblins and the like. Here I've tried to compare the being's paralyzing tube with the fairy wands and other hand-held devices of supposedly mythical peoples. Coincidence?
