I constantly hear from so called debunkers that claim that UFOs is a modern phenomena that can be explained as secret aircraft. The 1897 “airship” sightings show that’s not the case. The attached article is just one of many I found. There are estimates that over 100,000 people had similar sightings from Northern California to Michigan. As now, many of these sightings were “debunked” or derided. A Minneapolis newspaper claimed that the flying machines were balloons supercharged by the hot air of the local politicians were aboard the craft.
