BC, MIDDLE EAST, BIBLE:
Of course, everyone knows the famous "UFO quotes" from Ezekial in the Bible (verses 4 through 19, etc.) which I quote here only to be as thorough as possible:
"4. And I looked and beheld a whirlwind came out of the north a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it and out of the midst thereof as the color of amber, out of the midst of the fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance, they had the likeness of man… and the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of the flash of lightning…and when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them, and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up."
