The Medici Coat of Arms/Balls
In Response To: An End to March Madness ()

I was extremely disappointed in the History Channel special. What a come on! It barely mentioned the Renaissance and was almost entirely about the post-War UFO phenomenon. This excerpt is about all there was on the Renaissance:

I had hoped it might discuss the mysterious Medici symbol of the red balls.

The show did mention a 16th Century (1566 AD) UFO citing in Switzerland that involved black balls that turned red.

There is also a book (by Daniela Geordano, apparently in Italian and not available) about UFO phenomenon and the Renaissance, which was mentioned in the documentary in (very rapid) passing.
