Conspiracy theorists spot ‘satellite’ in 400-year-old religious painting

Conspiracy theorists are claiming to have spotted a "satellite" in a 400-year-old painting depicting Jesus and the Holy Ghost.

Despite being painted by Ventura Salimbeni in 1595, the Glorification of the Eucharist has caught the eye of some people as they believe they can see a Russian satellite in the image.

Despite the Sputnik satellite being launched hundreds of years later in 1957, conspiracies are now circling about the orb-like piece in the painting, which some believe is the Russian satellite.

The spiky blue sphere has captured the attention of those who truly believe the paranormal could have had an effect on the painting.

Steve Mera, chairman of the Manchester Association of Paranormal Investigation & Training (MAPIT) and a paranormal specialist and lecturer, said: "You start to find a lot of religious connotation linked in with the UFO phenomenon.

"This painting [the Eucharist] was painted in the 1600s and nobody ever really knew what that was a painting of, until we kind of looked at Sputnik, which was the first satellite to pass round the Earth."

It is not the first fascinating sighting in ancient paintings, with the Daily Star previously reporting an iPhone find in a 350-year-old painting.

But this Sputnik sighting, reported by Indy100, could be more plausible, Mr Mera claimed.

He added: "What is really, really interesting is it is surprisingly similar to Sputnik, even to the point there is a little nodule there (on Sputnik) and the exact same nodule on the side there [on the object in the painting]."

Mr Mera alleged the nodes and parts of the spiky ball found in Salimbeni's classic painting match up with the Russian satellite launched in the late 1950s.

But paintings with parts of the future in them are par for the course, with the Pieter de Hooch painting allegedly showcasing an iPhone.

Even Apple CEO Tim Cook was left scratching his head at the image, which left him "not so sure" on when the iPhone was created.
