Editor's Note--The following newspaper article is from July 23, 1887; it describes a Georgia doctor witnessing what he initially believes to be a meteor crashing to earth; after retrieving it he discovers it is a perfectly round, polished, blue metallic sphere with pictures and strange writing on it.
It is presumed by the witness, a doctor, that the object is extraterrestrial . . . but could it be man-made?
If life on this planet advanced "in the past" (before a global disaster wiped them out) in a similar path as it has in more recent history, is it possible that our ancestors launched satellites into orbit as we are doing today? Is what this man found in 1887, a satellite that became the victim of a decaying orbit?
There are other historic articles similar to this one, as well as one describing a "compartmented craft" . . . an ancient "space station" perhaps?--FW
