A new painting that was found in Romania in a church from the 16th century clearly shows an odd saucer shaped UFO over a building.

I thought this was pretty interesting. There are a lot of them out there. There must be something to this.

Not a UFO. That is clearly a painting of the eastern European Flying Land Clam.
They are long thought to be extinct but there have been the oddball sightings once in a while.

It's part of the drapes in the window through which the house is viewed.

Have to burst the bubble- but that is not a UFO...and on the website with more paintings, those are not UFOs either.
In one of the paintings it is clearly apparent that one is the sun and on the opposite side, the moon. Yes they have people 'inside' them, that does not make them alien crafts.
Someplace in my library of art books is a focus on the sun/moon from that painting. I will have to find it and pass on what it says about it.

Denial. It's obviously a UFO.

@OwlKaMyst -- When you look at these kinds of things you have to consider what's never accurately depicted in them -- things they don't know about or have never seen. What would possess them to depict something resembling a space craft with persons inside or flying disc-shaped objects when this is something the probably never would have thought possible. You have to try and understand how they viewed the world rather than judging what you think is plausible based on your understanding of the world today.

So it is not at all possible that it IS a sun and moon with the Christian angels inside?
Study Byzantine religious art and you will discover there is overlap from the Roman pagan traditions found in Christian art.
I totally get the concept of a portrait of something not understood- many things from the bible, when reading it openly with no religious context, instantly took my thoughts to 'it's alien' (or from the future). Such as 'be came down from heaven in a chariot of fire' - sounds like some sort of combustion craft.
I am very much into symbolism and I have studied art. These UFO art promoters do not include anything documented from the period regarding the sometimes strict religious iconography.
Look up Benvenuto Tisi, Immaculate Conception with the Doctors of the Church. You will see the placement of the Sun and Moon the same as the painting on the website. It's common.
One also must consider another important aspect, the religion that inspired the art.
What we have is Christian art, no where in the bible is it told of strange crafts or beings being present at the crucifixion.
Also- if UFOs had been witnessed, why only during these monumental events centered around Jesus?
Why are are there not a plethora of other paintings with UFO? Why only the Chrisitian ones from the medieval times?

It could be the space ship that brought Jesus from his home planet.
