The issue may well be cultural interpretation of unknown
phenomena that fails to fall within an easily defined mental
framework. We tend to look at distant objects and try to
identify them by whatever means we can, even if they are too far
to see clearly. A distant light in the night sky moving at a
constant speed if interpreted as an airplane in today's world,
but that really only an educated guess unless you have some way
to confirm it.

I believe that behind most myths there are real events that
created them, but interpretation of such events are seen through
the accepted reality of the time and often evolve with the re-
telling. You left out the Lock Ness monster, and the last of the
dinosaurs living deep in the jungles of Africa, but let's not
get carried away.
