1897 г. Пристрелка. Просто удивительно, насколько одинаковыми остаются репортажи с тех пор и по сей день.

  1. I am sure many of you know but I recently became aware that the later part of the 19th century there was an ‘airship’ craze across the nation. I am currently collecting many articles and comments about the mysterious airships that people both witnessed and had the opportunity to talk with the occupants.

    So far it seems that their theories were that they individuals or groups that had finally discovered flight and were out and about testing their new creations. Many conspiracy theories abound about from men from Mars to wealthy men using their creations.

    There are some lengthy articles that I can include if people feel like they might enjoy reading them. While some are humorous, they are still very relatable to today.

  2. The old newspapers are full of odd sightings if you take the time to look. I just did a search of the National Archives:

    [NATIONAL ARCHIVES NEWSPAPER SEARCH](https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/)

    Searching for «meteor,» there was a very nice write up in the Watchman and Southron from 1/24/1894 of a meteor sighting at sea where an object «the size of five full moons» zig-zagged through the sky for a half an hour. Very entertaining.

    «Airship» is also a fun term to search for.
