Among the most important bits of news which it was the good fortune of this paper to publish to the world was the discovery of Peru.
Well, yes that would be one problem with trawling for info on this.Googling "Nuremberg Gazette" comes up with pages of UFO stuff, mostly copy-pasta of the same words, but no references to the incident that I can see from any "authoritative" source

So, what do the local skeptics and the "alien contact experts" (you know who you are ) alike make of this incident? Anybody know any previous more-or-less credible research into the case, including but not limited to anything where the original article from the Nuremberg Gazette could be viewed? At a glance, it might be a blown-out-of-proportions description of a particularly violent meteor shower but ascertaining this in any way would require some research

Indeed it would be very strange if nobody else reported phenomena of this (reported) intensity. But all I've ever heard about are NG and the a posteriori Glaser's woodcut. Perhaps German UFO proponents should stop watching U-t00b for evidence for a while and go hang out in the old newspaper archivesI wanna say: this seems to be heavy stuff - and it would be interesting, what other chronicles of and around Nuremberg would have to say about April,14th 1561. There are tons of paper in the archives here in Germany from this era, well-documented times. There must be more than Glaser's report and woodcut. But it would be a hard task for trained professionals only. Let me tell you, that there is another woodcut in Glaser's series for March 1561, where he reports about strange lights around the moon (the UFO fleets leaving their bases ).
Thx, I think I got the gist of itSo, here is my (I think reasonable, but not watertight) "translation"
This is in fact more interesting than perhaps is readily apparent. It might be worth looking into if there was something particular going on in the atmo for example in the spring of 1561 that might have resulted in more than usual amount of halo phenomena.there is a hint by Hans Glaser, that the "signs" in the sky were significant in quality and numbers in the recent time.
