The link between unusual aerial phenomena and the #BlackDeath was established immediately during the first outbreaks of the #Plague in Asia. The first reports of the Plague came out of the East with descriptions of storms, meteors and comets trailing noxious gases that killed trees and destroyed the fertility of the land. It seems reasonable to conclude that these strange flying objects were doing more than just spreading disease: they were also apparently spraying chemical or biological defoliants from the air. Perhaps more interesting is that these accounts echo the ancient Mesopotamian tablets which described defoliation of the landscape by the Anunnaki! Many human casualties from the Black Death may have been caused by such defoliants.
