A newly found depiction of a disc-shaped flying object in a 14th century church in Romania bears a remarkable resemblance to a modern day disc-shaped UFO. It’s been there in plain sight for thousands of years but only noticed in 2014 by a keen-eyed tourist who snapped a photo and sent to the Israeli Extraterrestrials and UFOs Research Organization.
Catalina Borta took the picture while visiting the Biserica Manastirii, or Church of the Dominican Monastery, in the town of Sighisoara, Romania. Sighisoara is notable as it is believed to be the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler (1431), the inspiration for the legend of Dracula. The 700-year-old Sighisoara wall painting shows a disc-shaped object hovering over a building (possibly the church) which is seemingly on fire and bellowing smoke. The caption below the painting, written in German, translates to “Israel, put your hope in the Lord.”
According to the Monastery, the church was built in the 14th century and rebuilt in the 17th century after a fire. It is unknown who created the wall art but is eerily similar to other works of historical art which depict aerial anomalies. Given that the Bible was translated in German during the era, the painting is believed to have been created just after 1523 during the Renaissance period.
