Argentina: A UFO Over Palermo (Buenos Aires)?

A report submitted by Rodrigo Zion to Luis Burgos from FAO: "On Saturday, November 3 I was touring the forests of Palermo, Buenos Aires gazing at native plants and birds with group from the University and fellow enthusiastas. At approimately 10:00 a.m. I saw a BRIGHT OBJECT (emphasis in the original) in the clear skies. I couldn't tell if it was moving, but I could see that this alleged sphere was linked to something thin in its lower section, like a rod, perhaps similar in length to the object's diameter. Being that the tour of the forest had a set intinerary, I had to proceed with the rest of the group and lost the object from sight. I was able to take a picture of the object with my Huawei cellphone, but given the distance and resolution, barely anything can be seen. I do not know what this might have been."

Burgos adds: "We have hitherto not received similar reports in the region, but at the exact same time as the Palermo sighting, Josefina Ferrari and her mother Zulma Garrido were also alble to record an odd flying object at Cerro San Bernardo, Salta."

Mexico: UFO Sighting "Is The Most Shocking" in Recent Memory

The UFO sighting in Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico can easily be catalogued as one of the most significant in recent memory.

The witness sharing the video made the following remarks on social media:

"Today, October 28, 2018, I witnessed five (5) UFOs over Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. I was driving back to San Diego, California, with my grandmother at around 4:23 a.m.," he said. "We were having a regular conversation when suddenly everything went silent all I could do was point at the sky. I looked up and I saw five (5) of these things floating over the houses and the beach," he added.

"I stopped and immediately went live on Instagram to avoid speculations about video editing and other things," he concluded.

Uruguay: Truckers Claim Seeing UFO in Durazno

An audio recording circulated this past Monday - October 29, 2018 - on WhatsApp that purportedly reported the apparition, at 2:30 a.m., of a green light in the middle of a field. A loud detonation was heard afterward and the light climbed into the dark sky until it vanished.

According to the account, it all occurred on a road near Routes 19 and 16 between Villa del Carmen and Cerro Chato, some 45 kilometers from Sarandí del Yí, the area in which the well-known Sainz business is located, handling over 100 trucks per day, hailing from various communities.

The person who first tells the story of the light - which he subsequently refers to as a UFO - states that this case was not unique. In the same area of rural Durazno, another worker had made similar remarks.

The second truck driver says that the blue light was swinging alongside his vehicle, and after following him for a considerable stretch of road, turned and vanished into the sky.

We are sharing two audios (in a single recording) received at the newsroom. You may hear other details from those who claim to have witnessed an uncanny experience, which was accepted calmly and with a good sense of humor.

First Voice: "Around 2:30 in the morning I heard dogs barking, and I went out to take a look. I saw a green light and thought, damn, could it be a hunter? One who went out with a green lamp to spotlight critter (coughs). And so I looked at it and suddenly I saw it flying around the field, really fast, and then it went up to the sky, really high up. Then it disappeared. It spun and I never saw it again. So I thought, could it be a UFO? And that's what I believed. Half an hour later a trucker came by to fill up on gasoil, and he said to me: "Do you know that one of my fellow drivers on the road came across a green light that moved in every direction?" So I said, Ah, that's the same one I saw! I've seen the very same thing, I told him. [The trucker said] this happened in the middle of the countryside and it swung beside the truck, then moved up and up, there was a flash and it vanished. And that's where we left it, it was a UFO and so forth. Strange things that happen. A while later another trucker came by, the one in the audio, and he sent me an audio, saying a light appeared beside him and paced him, slowly, flanking him. It moved in every which direction. It was as if it was keeping him company before it flew up and disappeared. So I thought one must be nuts to see something like that (laughs)."

Second Voice
: "Have you sped up, sped up, sped up? Things were tough here last night in Los Sainz. I was on my way to Los Sainz when the lights on my truck cut out. They turned off twice and the truck was left without power. Someone else at Los Sainz had had a blue light appear before him. Took a photo of it in front of him [garbled] there was a flash, a blue flash. So I left Los Sainz, a few hundred meters out, looked to the side, driving easy and slow, and I saw a blue flash. Blue, very blue. It moved to and fro and then vanished. So I told myself, it's your tough luck, buddy. But then it went away, I don't know."

Argentina: An Incredible UFO Case in Mburucuyá

Argentina: An Incredible UFO Case in Mburucuyá

During the 1980s and 1990s, residents of the interior of our province were witnesses to a number of cases of varying importance, classified according to renown world-class researchers as close encounters. The first classification, which still endures, was the one created by U.S. scientist Dr. Joseph Allen Hynek, an astrophysicist and astronomer of considerable importance, who started out as an earnest detractor of the UFO phenomenon until he came across a number of cases that prompted him to conduct research. He later became a major investigator and disseminator of the UFO subject. He classified them as follows:

Encounters of the first kind: seeing a UFO, a simple sighting.
Encounters of the second kind: when a UFO lands and leaves imprints or marks on the soil.
Encounters of the third kind: when there is contact with a craft and its occupants, whether visual or physical.
Encounters of the fourth kind: Abduction, that is, when an earthman is abducted by a craft.
Encounters of the fifth kind: when mental or telepathic contact occurs with occupants of alien craft.

The case that concerns us took place on Sunday, 18 February 1996 in the peaceful locality of Mburucuyá, some 144 kilometers distant from the capital. Numerous reslidents witnessed how a luminous unidentified object virtually paraded over the community, issuing flashes of many colors and keeping the citizenry on edge for approximately five to six minutes.

Radio Alfa FM sounded the alarm an people turned out in droves to the edge of Route 13, where they were treated to the sight of a strange object that emitted a very odd light, whose color was akin to bright white shifting to pink and then practically red. Later, before the startled eyes of the many witnesses, the object changed position several times with its lights off. The story prompted the immediate presence of Máximo Cantero, a 35-year-old man at the time, a veteran of the Malvinas (Falklands) War, married with four children. He retold a spectacular experience he had had the night before, possibly with the very same object.

Speaking before a radio audience, the man said that he had traveled to El Descabezado, a rural area located on Provincial Route 11. Since his car suffered an unexpected breakdown (it was rendered completely without power) and he was unable to fix it, he decided to set off to the town on foot - a 30 kilometer distance. On the road he came across a friend an neighbor, who loaned him his horse for a faster return trip, once informed of the accident. The animal would be returned at a suitable time once the problem had been solved. However, shortly after beginning his journey he saw a bright light that filled the countryside.

"I didn't pay it much mind at first," he said, "thinking it was moonlight. But as it grew brighter, I looked up and found myself staring at an oval object that made no noise whatsoever. It was completely silent. To my surprise, the object came closer and closer, slowly, and at that time my skin broke out in goose pimples, a very strange sensation. The horse also became rather nervous so I hurried along."

Being a practicing Catholic, he began to pray fervently until he reached the house of Rito Riquelme, another neighbor, who accompanied him with his wife to look at the object that remained motionless, constantly changing colors. All three were stunned.

When the object was near the couple and Cantero, it calmed down and after endless minutes, vanished at high speed into the firmament. After all this, the man chose to continue his journey, praying the Rosary, although the strange light appeared once more, escorting him into town.

Cantero traveled the remaining seven kilometers at high speed, reaching his house in a state of nervousness after all he had experienced. He later said that "he was fearful that he UFO, unknown object, or whatever it was, would take him and spirit him off to some unknown galaxy or planet as a sample of Earth life. At that time I thought about my wife, my children, my relatives and friends, who I would never see again."

He firmly stated that this is not the first time such strange apparitions in the sky have befallen him. The had occurred before, and he had even taken photos.

He ended by musing: What could these beings be after in this part of the Northeast, especially in Mburucuyá, whose villagers have been surveyed many times during that season of the year. Jokingly, he noted: "Perhaps they heard the sound of our chamamé during the last festival, which was highly successful, and couldn't resist to come and take a closer look at what was going on." He smiled, but his nervousness wasn't completely dispelled. It was, without question, an experience that marked him forever.

Further corroboration for Cantero's statement came two days later. Julio Sesín, a local businessman from Loma Alta in the first section of Mburucuyá, told the sheriff's office that he had seen an unidentified flying object in the area, of average size and very bright.

He also stated having seen - in the company of his children and some twenty locals, a bright, large pink light in motion, clearly visibly against the cloudy sky that had preceded a rainstorm. Just another of so many cases that have taken place in our province and which often do not become public knowledge, but which have taken place and continue to happen, no matter what anyone says.

Argentina: Are We Alone? Alleged UFO Flying Amidst a Storm

The alleged sighting took place in the locality of Quemú Quemú. Several phenomena of this sort have been reported in recent times.

A reader contacted and shared the photo taken recently over Quemú. While storm clouds gathered overhead, it is possible to make out a circular, dark object among the clouds. It did not resemble a conventional aircraft.

Mexico: Alleged "UFO" Captured on Video Declared "Absolute Proof of ET Existence"

In recent years, hundreds of videos have circulated on sightings of strange objects and phenomena in the skies. These are immediately associated with UFOs and the presence of alien life forms. However, what would prove each of them has been easily dismissed by specialists and experts in ufology through the analysis of audiovisual materials.

In spite of the abundance of this material on-line, a recent recording disseminated on You Tube three days ago - also associated with UFOs and ETs - is causing wonder on the Internet, as it is touted at the "absolute" and "irrefutable" proof of alien life.

The video, with over 14,000 views on the web, shows a bright light moving from left to right before accelerating and vanishing in the clouds.

Nonetheless, when the author of this recording - taken in Mexico - increases and decreases speed to see it better, it affords a better view of the object which, according to cybernauts, resembles "a spaceship with a force field around it."

These images were taken from one of the cameras that broadcast live images of the city, but research and analysis of same was conducted by an expert in Australia.

Argentina: Strange Ground Effects Caused by UFOs?

Argentina: Strange Ground Effects Caused by UFOs?

On Saturday, a young man found two distinctive drawings in the snow, but found no human footprints.

At around 20:00 hours on Saturday, a youth from Moquehue (Neuquén) went out on his motorcycle to ride through a seldom-transited area along Route 117 and found strange drawings in the snow.

"Their size and perfection were striking," said Rodrigo in a conversation with LM Neuquén regarding the spots. "I'd never seen anything like them."

The young man said that after seeing the drawings, he alerted his family and they returned to the site to take photographs and inspect the designs. "I was surprised that there were no footprints nearby. This in an area that is rarely visited," he added.

The ground marks were found on Route 11 heading toward Norquinco in an area that remains closed in winter and only recently reopened in the spring. Patches of snow often remain and that is where the marks were seen.

Other local residents said that drawings similar in their size and perfection were found a kilometer distant from the site.

"I believe UFOs exist. Perhaps it was them," Rodrigo concluded.

Note: Luis Burgos from FAO has noticed a similarity between this phenomenon and drew comparisons with another classic case: "The famous and controversial Delphos Case in Kansas, USA, 1971. It snowed afterward and the UFO mark was highlighted."
