Since the time of the pyramids, there are written accounts of strange lights in the sky, unearthly-looking beings, and the possibility that these visitors are from elsewhere in the galaxy. There had been little evidence to support these theories beyond written first-hand accounts, as few could write and scientific theory was in its infancy. That is until monuments such as Stonehenge, stone carvings high in the Andes, and cave paintings in Australia that depict unearthly warriors are considered.
There are threads of similarity in these early accounts, images and monuments that continue to raise speculation today. Is there proof that ancient astronauts visited earth a millennia ago? If so, did they build monuments and leave behind other objects as their guideposts and future legacy?
On these pages, MUFON presents several credible accounts raised by investigators and those well-regarded paranormal researchers. For example, the image of Martians that has been projected over the last 70 years as being small in stature, with large heads and prominent eyes. This image is underscored by ancient cave paintings in Australia which depict warrior-like aliens with similar features and bearing.
