This remarkable work details the documented accounts of unexplained aerial phenomena throughout recorded history, the first account being from an Egyptian/Sudanese stele (1460 BC), erected in honor of Thutmose III, which describes a fantastic celestial event during a war between the Pharaoh and his enemies. From there the authors provide a chronological gallery of phenomena which has been documented by common folk, generals of the day, members of their armies, scientists and astronomers, religious leaders, and others. 

“Meticulous attention to scientific detail is a hallmark of Vallée’s books, and Wonders in the Sky is a case study in objectivity. Such focus makes this new edition of Wonders in the Sky a landmark and a case study in the scientific literature: how to avoid dogma while still leaving open the wonders of what role we play in a larger reality.” -Dr. Garry Nolan, Professor of Microbiology & Immunology, Stanford University

“A new standard and a new aesthetic. Anyone who has dipped into the world of ufology knows just how difficult it is to find an able guide through the dark deep forest of the phenomena, which are diverse, confusing, and often, or so it seems, intentionally confusing. Two beacons high above this forest have been the work of Jacques Vallée and the web-based “Magoniax” research team of Chris Aubeck and his colleagues. The result is a beautiful synthesis of the humanities and the sciences, of the human imagination and the computer, of the visual arts and the art of scholarship.” -Dr. Jeffrey J. Kripal, Professor of Religion, Chairman of the Religious Studies department, Rice University

“That, I believe, is true science: to follow the data wherever they lead. Their rigorously scientific insistence allows Vallée and Aubeck to retain the most challenging and interesting aspects of these events without the distraction of premature commitment to any particular interpretation. A willingness to combine documentary research, the heart of humanities scholarship, with physical and astrophysical knowledge is rare.”  Dr. David Hufford, Author, “The Terror That Comes in the Night” Professor Emeritus of Humanities and Psychiatry, Penn State College of Medicine, Adjunct Professor of Religious Studies, University of Pennsylvania.
