When Saucers came to Earth
The Story of the Italian UFO Landings in the Golden Era of the Flying Saucers
"When Saucers Came to Earth" is the very first book in the English language entirely devoted to the story of UFO sightings that have occurred in Italy.
Sightings of a special kind. The landings of "flying saucers" in the 1940s and '50s. These were extraordinary encounters involving ordinary people, in a world that has ceased to exist. Begin a fascinating journey back to distant 1912, when an Italian farmer met up with a ghostly light on a foggy night in the northern Italian flatlands; and travel to the early morning of New Year's Eve 1954, when an odd-looking flying saucer with two "pilots" observed an old bell-ringer.
Over 100 amazing saucer landings are described in detail, all featuring sources and critiquing comments aimed at a better understanding of the follow-ups to - and the possible explanations for - every incident. Hundreds of maps, sketches, pieces of artwork, and newsclippings make this book a visual tour of the early years of the "flying saucer" phenomenon and myth.
