Cuba: Nocturnal Sighting in Matanzas (CE-1, 2005)
By Orestes Girbau

Date: 25 January 2005
Time: 10:00 pm
Witnesses: Two passers-by
Duration: Around 15 minutes
Weather conditions: Clear Skies
Progress of the UFO Experience:
The witness, 51, a decorator by profession with a 9th grade education level, saw a UFO twice around the same time for two consecutive weeks, both on a Wednesday.
According to the witness, the object was 5 meters long by 3 meters wide with three sources of light, rotating slowly and noiselessly. It had a rectangular base with a dome resembling glass and of a semi-circular shape. It flew over the house in a straight line from north to south. As it moved away, it accelerated at breakneck speed and vanished without a sound.
The second time she witnessed the object, it was hanging in the air for some 10 minutes at an elevation of 12 meters. It later passed over the house(s), pausing for two or three minutes over each on two separate occasions. Next, it turned toward the main highway, aligned itself with it, and followed the route until it disappeared from view.

Argentina: A UFO photograph from Salta

Antonio Zuleta writes: This startling daytime UFO photo was taken by Ms. Josefina Ferrari while ascending Cerro San Bernado in a cable car. Josefina was in the company of her mother when she saw something strange near the cable car; she took out her cellphone and took some pictures. When she saw what she'd captured, she was stunned. A UFO, she wondered?
She decided to send me this photograph, and I thanked her for entrusting me with her story and this solid UFO evidence. It would seem that only meters away from the witnesses, at the exact moment that Josefina got ready to take the picture, the UFO did exactly the same, as a flash is clearly evident (they also take photographs of us). An astonishing fact.
If you see this note, dear Josefina, I would like you to write down your own version of the events. I have only written down what you told me. If something does not match the actual events, please correct it. Many thanks for this surprising story."

Argentina: The Santa Catalina UFO Case

Argentina: The Santa Catalina UFO Case

During the 1970s, 80s and some of the '90s, Corrientes served as the location for numerous UFO cases ranging from sightings to landings and contact incidents. One of the first cases was the Santa Catalina incident, where a strange luminous object was witnessed by an entire family during a night in 1978.

The cold evening of 22 August 1978 would not be just another night in the lives of the Miño family, protagonists of the incredible UFO sighting in the vicinity of Santa Catalina, which at that time was at the end of Bus Line 6, far from what was the city at the time. There was a military base there, headquarters to the Command and Service Brigade, Sanitary Company 7 and Arsenal Company 8, where the bus would turn and head back to the city. There were few hoses in that area and the streets were made of sand, making it hard to traverse them, especially on a bicycle. One had to make an effort to pedal. The city was just expanding and this area was far from contemporary Santa Catalina.

The cold south wind blowing over the region that evening, while not very strong, was enough to entice people to remain indoors, well-dressed and drinking something warm. Ignacio Esteban Miño, the main witness of the surprising event, was 29 years old at the time and was on his way back from his job in the city, where he worked as a martial arts instructor. The time was around 22:00 hours. As he got ready to enter his home, he was surprised to see a strange luminous object of an intense white color moving slowly in the sky, some 200 meter distant, and over the river, as it was near the dwelling. The vehicle was some 6 or 7 meters in diameter, according to his calculations, and made no noise at all. It moved silent through space, allowing the sighting to last some 15 minutes. Startled by what he was seeing, he entered the house and told his family: "Come out quickly, come see this, it's incredible!" His father and sister, who were still awake, went outside, followed by the mother and an aunt, as a result of the ensuing hubbub. All remained silent, contemplating the strange object. It glowed with a powerful white color, waxing and waning in intensity. Throughout the duration of the event, no noise was heard and nearby animals (dogs) remained quiet.

When Ignacio Miño was consulted about the strange experience, he said: "Nothing like it had ever happened to me. I'd never seen anything like it, but this time I could see the object clearly. It was rather close, I figure some 100 meters away, and at no time was I frightened. The object was oval-shaped and as I said, very luminous. It didn't travel very fast and gave the impression that it was inspecting something, looking at something. You ask whether I'd read up on the UFO subject? No, very little. I was only aware of its existence through friends. I do believe there's life elsewhere. As a result of my experience I intend to find out more, as I'd like to know more in this regard. I was lucky not to be alone when I saw it; otherwise no one would believe me. My father, my sister, my mother and an aunt came out for a look. There were five of us. We all saw it perfectly and were astonished by what we saw. From what I heard, no neighbors saw what we had seen. There was no one outside, as it was rather cold with a stiff wind. Not the kind of night you want to be outdoors. In any event, I won't forget this experience. It was incredible."

It should be noted that a week after the Miño family's sighting, a group of fishermen had camped 500 beyond on the banks of the Paraná River, and described a luminous object with similar characteristics flying over the river at low altitude.

This was one of the '70s cases that followed the Cambá Punta case in 1960, the Torrent Case in 1965, as the most important. Many others would come later in the '80s and '90s. Perhaps the most important was the Catamarán Case of 1978, when a group of artists, musicians and chamameceros (popular musicians from Corrientes) gathered at the catamaran at the end of the year, witnessed a UFO fleet over the Paraná River. The Santa Catalina case is significant because it occurred on a cold night, with a clear, cloudless sky, so it was visible without impediment. Furthermore, there was a group of witnesses - five, not many - yet sufficiently lucid to see the same thing and describe it in detail.

As is customary in these cases, eyewitness accounts were taken separately. Each member of the family was interviewed and their stories all matched. They had witnessed an anomalous event that was being considered worldwide as the sighting of an extraterrestrial device, very luminous, with obviously intelligent movements, flying slowly before shifting speed before vanishing at high speed in the dark of the night. Currently, such cases are commonplace, with the advantages given by present technology in photographing and recording sightings as indisputable proof of their existence.

This also marked the beginning of a series of sightings, descents and contacts that began in the Northeast, particularly in Corrientes Province, which had many cases in the two following decades.

Costa Rica: Anomaly Over the Irazu Volcano?

Source: CIAL Observación Ovni CR (Costa Rica) and Planeta UFO (Argentina)
Date: 05.23.2019

"Good evening. We have noticed a source of illumination over the upper part of the summit, where the Irazú telecommunication towers are located. We ask any of our contacts to please assist us in ascertaining what it is."

[Oddly enough, Costa Rica's "La Nación" newspaper mentioned the possible relocation of these eighty-four telecommunication towers to other parts of the country due to the constant avalanches near the summit of the mountain. The news item goes on to say: "This is the order handed down by the Comisión Nacional de Emergencias (CNE - National Emergency Committee) following a diagnosis of cracks in the vicinity of the giant peak, arising from a visit by several experts this month (January 23, 2017). A photo of the towers in question appears below -- SC]

Argentina: Are UFOs Flying Over Vaca Muerta?

Refinery workers caused a photo allegedly showing a formation of unidentified flying objects to go viral. It is similar to a case that became known days ago on San Antonio Oeste beach.

Days ago, two co-workers were getting ready to break for lunch after a hard morning's work at a petroleum facility when they looked up and saw strange, brilliant shapes in the skies over Añelo.

A couple of photos managed to capture the moment and lead to a break room discussion. The image went viral online and unleashed a debate: Were they really UFOs flying over Vaca Muerta?

The photos taken by Miguel Vázquez show a formation similar to the one made viral by LM Neuquén concerning the events in the vicinity of the San Antonio Oeste beach. "It was a formation of objects shining in the sky. Different from anything you can see in the air," said the sighting's protagonist.

He added that this was the first time he had seen an unidentified flying object, although upon showing his photos to co-workers at the oil facility in the heart of the Neuquén Basin, he said many reported seeing similar phenomena late at night or in the morning.

"They made a formation like a triangle," Miguel told LMN. He and his colleague Eduardo managed to see the phenomenon.

He added: "It was shocking to take photos and see them at the same time. We could shake off our astonishment."

Colombia: The Tatacoa Desert's Enigmatic Spaceport

Colombia: The Tatacoa Desert's Enigmatic Spaceport

Orfanda Soto opens her arms and spins her body as though wanting to take flight. Her eyes are closed. The stiff March wind that shakes the dust in the Tatacoa does not even cause her to stumble. She is awaiting an unprecedented event: the sighting of an extraterrestrial craft.

The ground remains silent. The rocks of the so called "spaceport" that lie beneath the woman's feet are boiling. The site is a diameter measuring 52 meters in diameter located in the center of the desert, easily visible from the sky. Its total surface area is four times greater than that of a regular heliport and is comparable to half the size of a regulation soccer pitch.

The origin of this mysterious location at the heart of the Tatacoa goes back to 2008. According to Orfanda, it was Alfredo Agudelo Ospina from Antioquia, knowns as "Caminante del Cielo Lunar Rojo” (Red Lunar Moon Skywalker) and founder of the Kaphiro Brotherhood who suggested building the spaceport at that location.

Agudelo says that eleven years ago "cosmic beings of light" asked her to install a symbol in the heart of the Tatacoa Desert 'as a sign that their message had been received'. They told her that a spaceship from another planet would soon land in that location.

But Orfanda states that the sighting of extraterrestrial vehicles is something they have been living with for a very long time, even predating the creation of the "ufoport". "The first spaceship landed 16 years ago. I was in my bathroom and I headed out for the desert the moment I saw it. It was an immense thing. Later, from one minute to the next, a ball of blue flame landed on my shoulder. My husband and children ran out when they heard me screaming, but the spaceship had already gone by then," says the woman as she raises her eyes to the sky.

The mysteries concealed behind the desert mountains are not a source of fear for this Catholic matron, who grew up under the cold nights of the Tatacoa. Her parents, two peasants who farmed the arid soil inherited from their forebears, told her tales of other alleged UFO sightings in the area belonging to the municipality of Villavieja, Huila.

It was a night in 1960 when - according to Orfanda - she saw 'an immense fireball' while in the company of her parents. "They had sent me to cut cane for the horses. When I left the house, I saw the flame and screamed. At that time they admitted that so many things were seen in the Tatacoa Desert that it was best not to pay them any mind." She later adds, with a certain air of stoicism, "It has never scared me to live in this area, because we were taught to be brave, to face things."

This short matron with the pronounced Huilan accent is one of the largest landowners in the entire Tatacoa desert. Her family owns a vast tourist complex that welcomes thousands of visitors who come to the area looking for adventure. Many others arrive interested in learning the mysteries that surround Colombia's only 'ufoport'.

In fact, several tourists remarked that the night they camped in the heart of the alien spacecraft landing platform, they had seen "strange looking humanoids". Others claimed having heard the inconsolable weeping of an entity that has yet to be identified.

Nestor Gutierrez was eleven years old when he saw an alleged UFO for the first time. Orfanda's son says it was around eight o'clock at night, while stargazing, that a light moving in the sky turned into two objects with flashing lights, forming a sort of rainbow. "The lights of the craft began turning on and off for approximately fifteen minutes. I ran to the house, called my mother, and the object's lights began to dim. Everything went dark and a chunk of the sky was left completely black. However, he notes that unlike his brothers, he has never seen a spaceship land in the desert.

According to statements by several members of the Gutierrez Soto family, less than ten years ago "a three-legged spaceship landed at the ufoport and then descended into the ground without leaving any trace whatsoever." The event caused dozens of local residents to show up at the site with shovels, looking for the treasure allegedly left behind by the putative extraterrestrial beings.

"This fact shows that we are on top of another world. There could be a spaceship below us or even more people. There's something there," says Orfanda as she points to the pile of rocks on the ground that trace the circles of Nicholas Roerich's Banner of Peace, for the benefit of the sky.

Luminous object flies over the Popocatépetl crater; some think it could be a UFO.

A video was shared via Twitter showing a luminous object passing over the Popocatépetl Volcano's crater.

The video - 27 seconds long - shows the strange object passing very near the volcano at high speed.

The images were taken on May 14 and have been disseminated via Twitter, causing astonishment and expectation.

Some believe it could be a UFO, and remarks about earlier sightings have been made on social media.

Popocatépetl is active, and the volcanic eruption marker is currently at Phase 2 - Yellow given the outgassing of water and ash.

Argentina: A New UFO Sighting Along the Tin-Tin "Straight Segment"

The photo was taken only days ago by a couple from the Province of Buenos Aires who had decided to visit some locations around Salta and pay a visit to Cachi. When they saw some of their photos, they couldn't believe it.

It is an establish fact that many Argentineans choose to visit the country's northern regions for relaxation. Those who visit Salta often choose to tour the Valles Calchaquíes, particularly Cachi and Cafayate.

And this was precisely what Franco and Lucrecia - a couple from Buenos Aires - decided to do, renting a car and spending the weekend in Cachi, according to what they told us. Obviously, faced with such striking vistas, they took photographs as they drove.

Some of the photos were taken in the famous Recta del Tin Tin (Tin Tin Straight Segment) before reaching Cachi, where the skies, almost always clear, allow for good photography.

As they explained, they unloaded their photos from their cellphone to the computer. Some are uploaded to social media and others are kept as souvenirs. But what they saw that evening in their hotel room was stunning.

According to their testimony, it wasn't there when they looked, but the photograph clearly shows a UFO in the sky. They cannot say what it was, but there was something there.

They began researching immediately and learned that it was an area where other sightings have taken place. They also learned from local residents in Cachi that there are many stories, anecdotes and legends in this regard.

So that's why they decided to share these photos with us. As is customary in these cases, it's a matter of "believe or bust."

Argentina: UFO Tails Mirage Fighter.

Contributing editor Guillermo Giménez has provided us with the following image: "A very good photo of an Argentinean Air Force Mirage fighter being escorted by a UFO. The photo was taken at the Villa Reynolds Airbase, in San Luis, at 1800 hours. The fighter pilot was able to see the strange object. The photo was taken by Captain Sergio Figueroa and subjected to an exhaustive analysis by the military, ascertaining the flying object's veracity and discarding the likelihood of any conventional phenomenon and/or technical error. The reality of UFOs over our skies is undeniable. This photo appears as the cover to the book "Encuentros entre Pilotos y OVNIS en Argentina" by researcher Carlos Ferguson."

Argentina: Video Confirms UFO Presence in Northern Salta? (VIDEO)

Following the dissemination of a photograph taken at Parque Bicentenario showing an object with lights in the sky, InformateSalta has received a video that will leave you stunned. Watch it.

Speechless. For those who enjoy or believe in the presence of unidentified flying objects, and for those who don't, this video will surely leave you impressed after you've seen it.

It was recorded not by an amateur, but by an expert, last week as he drove along Avenida Bolivia near Parque Bicentenario, where a photo of 'something in the sky' was also taken.

Upon seeing the video, you might think at first that it could be a drone, for example, but the speed at which this UFO disappears casts doubt on this possibility.

It was recorded in broad daylight around 14:30 hours while cameraman Teto Rosas and editor Marcelo Ruiz of Salta's Canal 11 were aboard a vehicle.

Don't forget to watch it. You'll be surprised.
