Valentich has been presumed dead since October 21, 1978, when he disappeared while manning a small plane to King Island in Australia. Shortly before his disappearance, he asked Australian authorities to verify if other aircraft were in his vicinity after seeing a strange aircraft with green lights. Valentich's eerie last words were, "That strange aircraft is hovering on top of me again. It is hovering and it's not an aircraft." Valentich and his plane haven't been seen since.

Perhaps the Oldest European Alphabet  Circa 800 BCE. A writing tablet in Greek/Phoenician dating from this time may be the oldest European alphabet, the oldest writing tablet extant, and part of the world's oldest book in codex form. The other old writing tablets are 2 from Nimrod [Nimrud], one ivory, the other walnut wood, dated 707 - 705 BC., in addition to a 8th c. BC Neo-Hittite wood tablet.
