Throughout mankind’s history, UFOs have been depicted by many different individuals, over thousands of years, and on many different continents.

They each felt compelled to document ufo sightings and alien visitation, and despite the vast differences of geography and time, with remarkably similar forms. Was it all some amazing coincidence, or, did they all see the same things?

This is a very small sample of the ufos and extraterrestrial visitors that were depicted by artists over tens of thousands of years, and from all around the world.
