Peru: Another UFO Photographed Over Volcano

Source: Ana Luisa Cid
Date: 06.22.06

Photo taken with a cellphone by Narciso Delgado Cabello from the Salinas Huito sector of Arequipa (Peru) on Saturday, June 17, 2006 at 8:00 hrs.

According to a report from the �Correo de Arequipa� newspaper submitted by Dr. Anthony Choy, the objects were seen for some seconds and appeared just as a couple photographed Arequipa�s tutelary volcanos � the Misti and the Chachani.

Silvana Chamba, Narciso Delgado�s companion, says that she was also able to see the possible UFOs over the volcanic summit. The witness is a memebr of the Regional Civil Defense Committee and took the photo with a Sagem X-7 cell phone.

To researcher Anthony Choy, this evidence is significant, since a similar photo was taken last week in the vicinity of the Ubinas Volcano, belonging to the same volcanic system as the Chachani, the difference being that the latter is presently dormant.

Peru: UFO Photographed over the Ubinas Volcano

SOURCE: Ana Luisa Cid
DATE: 06.19.06
According to the preliminary report by Dr. Anthony Choy, this UFO was photographed by Marco Antonio Zeballos, a member of the Civil Defense Regional Committee (CRDC), when the witness was in the town of Matalaque preparing to evacuate families affected by the volcano.

Researcher Choy says that the photo has not yet been subjected to detailed scrutiny. However, in his opinion, there is a high likelihood that it is an anomalous object that crossed the camera's field of view, without entirely dismissing that it could be an insect or bird that flew past quickly, causing distortion in the image.

He also reported that Mr. Zeballos did not observe the probable UFO and only realized its presence when the photos were reviewed, adding that this is not the first time that sightings have occurred in that part of Peru. This suggests a possible relationship between anomalous aerial phenomena and natural or human disasters.

The Ubinas Volcano has presented activity since April 19, 2006, producing audible explosions and the formation of eruption columns of up to 3 km high. For this reason, families living near the volcano have been evacuated.

Dr. Choy highlighted the importance that the photo was taken by an active official with the National Civil Defense Institute, as well as his openness by providing the image to a reporter for the "Correo de Tacna" newspaper.

Mexico: More on the Merida UFO

SOURCE: Ana Luisa Cid
DATE: 06/16/06

According to the news item published in Yucatan's "De Peso" newspaper on June 9, 2006, Mexican journalist Ylmar Pacheco captured the transit of a possible UFO over the Yucatan's capital.

Researcher Emilio Cetz reports that the witness managed to see a spherical object flying behind an airplane and did not pay it much attention, because he isn't a fan of the UFO phenomenon. He took a photo nonetheless.

When he downloaded the photos for review, he confirmed that a sphere was indeed present, and decied to submit the material to the newsroom of the "De Peso" newspaper, where a number of theories aimed at explaining the image were put forth.

The same publication left all possibilities open, allowing each reader to draw his or her own conclusions and employing such phrases as: "UFO or Foo Fighter? UFO or atmospheric trick?"

Emilio Cetz has known Ylmar for a long time and says that this is the first time that the photojournalist has had an encounter of this nature.

Personal comment from Ana Luisa Cid:

I have tried to contact Mr. Pacheco to secure more information on the two images published in the Merida newspaper and to date (June 16, 2006) I have obtained no reply. I remain hopeful that contact will be made soon.

The photos shown here have been directly scanned from "De Peso" as we do not have any copies of the originals yet.

Mexican researchers Raul Aleman, Gustavo Aleman and Emilio Cetz have participated in this project, and their valuable cooperation is acknowledged.

Argentina: UFO Sighting in Tin Tin

**UFOs in Cachi Once More**


People claim seeing incandescent circular light in the sky over Route 33.

With the first days of cold, clear skies over Cachi, reports on the apparition of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO) have emerged once more from believers and skeptics alike.

This can be seen in the eyewitness accounts from a group of six people who saw moving lights and flashes in the sky last Friday around 20:00 hrs. as they drove along Route 33 near the Amblavo intersection.

After they reached Salta, the individuals came to our newsroom to report their experience: "We can't all be wrong. We saw a light that moved and emitted flashes. It surprised us as it emerged from the straight road to Tin Tin and then again from Cuesta del Obispo," said Marcelo Tomas Aranda, an agronomist who works in Cachi and who visits Salta every Friday for the last 14 years.

The witnesses, who travelled aboard a van, agree with the report of a strange incandescent light that appeared up above. "The skies were clear and the moon lit the outline of the mountains. Suddenly, a circular light appeared, four times larger than a star." To Monica Cuevas, a technical secretary, and Adriana Laiseca, a supervisor with the Ministry of Education, the experience took them from total skepticism to questioning things that are said about UFO manifestations in the area.

Horacio Nolasco, the van's driver, travels back and forth from Cachi on a daily basis for years and had never seen anything like it. "It was a very shiny light with a straight-line motion from North to South that vanished between the mountains. We later saw it much closer as we descended halfway down Cuesta del Obispo," he explained.

Cesar Miguel Naranjo is an Ecuadorian national who has lived in Salta for 10 years. He is a parapsychologist and was among the witnesses to the event. "It's a wonderful sensation -- one is left dumbfounded by the knowledge that what is being seen is not a product of the imagination."

The other passenger, Nancy, who works in the Amblayo school, also saw the light but unlike her travel companions, did not wish to get off the vehicle. "The truth is that is frightened me a lot," she admitted.

Argentina: An Operation by Strange Entities?

DATE: 06.06.06


E.R., 50, lives with her husband in La Pampa and on April 18, 2006 began to feel herself affected by intense back pain.

4 days after being in said condition, she went to a local clinic where she was treated by a doctor who detected--after a thorough checkup--a considerable inflamation the the liver, bladder, pancreas, kidney and left lung, issuing a primary diagnosis: pancreatic cancer. She immediately ordered tests which were evaluated by another professional and confirmed the diagnosis. The physician began to administer medications.

In spite of this, E.R.'s condition worsened, compelling her to remain at rest in her bedroom. While listening to the sound of the TV set coming in from the dining room, she entered into a crisis and felt herself floating toward a very large, white light. When she was about to be absorbed into the lighte, she felt herself being "...snatched away by several shadows..." who told her mentally that "...this was not the time..."

At that moment she was able to see the figures clearly, realizing at the same time that she was somewhere else and not in her bedroom.

Fully lucid and awake, she was able to observe that she was lying on a sort of platform, oval-shaped and bathed in an intense light which seemed to be suspened from a type of structure or support a meter and a half in diameter, silvery-colored and seemingly metallic.

Around this platform she noted the presence of the 5 beings who debated the critical condition of her health.

One of these beings stood at her left and the remaining 4 on he right. These indicated that "...there was no other alternative other than to go in..."

After this, the being on her left introduced one of its long, thin arms into E.R. on her left side under her ribs, while she was held by her arms, legs and head.

She felt that something was "...torn out and dragged..." from within her body, causing intense pain. The extracted materila was given to the other beings. The intense pain was followed by a feeling of emptiness and gradual relief that permeated throughout the entire area.

While she clearly remembers the physiognomy of the beings, she has also been able to recall some of the statements they made: "....from this moment on you will put aside all medications..." and "...from this moment on you will be a different person..."

After a period of time she could not determine, she regained consciousness, this time in her bed, able to hear the sound from the television set.

Upon remembering her experience, she began to touch the affected area and felt a void, as though something was missing. Upon pressing her body, she felt the characteristic pain that follows an operation.

Two days after the experience, E.R. got up from the bed on which she had remained for nearly a week, noticing that her pains were almost completely gone. The next day she went to the clinic for a consultation with the physican, requesting an immediate clinical examination.

With the results in her hands and after the corresponding review, she attested to the noticeable reduction in her condition's levels, while expeirencing a slow by steady recovery, stressing that she has no answers that may account for the change or development observed.

As far as the beings are concerned, E.R. states that they were tall, thin, with long slender arms. Their heads were medium-sized with a pronounced volume in the occipital region. Their mouths were small, like their noses; eyes were medium-sized, slanted, very dark; smooth angular faces, small chins, with no visible cheekbones.

No clothing was visible. Their bodies were lead-blue nin color and their movements were swift.

E.R. did not notice any hands, and was uncertain about the use of instruments during the procedure. She did remember noticing a small isolated platform to the left of her location: it was seemingly metallic, silver-hued and very bright.

Finally, it should be noticed that E.R. was under strict treatment due to a severe cardiopathy with arterial lesions and persisten hypertension.

At present she has continued with her daily life. Her body is stabilized with some ups and downs, and she has not taken any medications.

Argentina: The Strange Experience of Julio Oscar

The Strange Experience of Julio Oscar

by Raul Oscar Chaves

Julio Oscar, 48, married, a resident of the province of Buenos Aires (Argentina), moved to La Pampa in the month of July 2005 to be reunited with his sister Rosa after a separation of over 20 years.

His body has been affected by his hard life of farm labor. A lung operation was necessary due to his work venting seeds in grain silos; his right leg underwent surgery to correct a limp caused by a permanent muscular contraction. The surgeries had taken place in Bahia Blanca's Penna Hospital.

In his relative's house one day, watching the TV by himself in the dining room, a sudden blackout occurred followed by the sudden appearance of a sphere of light measuring some 10 cm in diameter on the wall beside the television set (which was mounted to the wall). The brightly-hued orb vanished in a matter of seconds and the power was restored; an intrigued Julio Oscar had dinner and continued watching TV before going to bed. The time was approximately 22:30 hrs.

A few days later, while removing wallpaper from the top of a ladder, his body began to experience tremors which persisted until dinnertime. This caused him to take to his bed.

The time was 22:00 hours and he was alone again. The cause of the tremors: unknown.

He turned out the light on his nightstand. An intensely bright light measuirng 40 cm across appared over the windowsill at that time. It diminished in size as it placed itself over his body, only centimeters from his skin, scanning it, moving up and down from head to toes. Thoughts entered his mind, expressions such as, in his own words: "me querian llevar!" ("They wanted to take me away!").

The next morning, Rosa approached his bed concerned about his silence, as Julio was an early riser. She ascertained that he was motionless and unresponsive to external stimuli and questions, presenting a very high temperature.

After a while, Julio was able to open his eyes. Trying to articulate a coherent sentence, he told his sister: "...they came to take me away, they wanted to take me and you weren't there..."

Skeptical by nature, he did not understand the experience he had undergone nor did he remember details that would allow him to reach one conclusion or another.

Trying to forget the event, Julio returned to his everyday activities, walking mroe frequently and for longer distances, also riding a bicycle.

It should be mentioned that the muscular contraction in his affected leg kept him from walking normally, and his pulmonary insufficency only allowed him to cover the length of a block in two or three installments, during which he would stop to catch his breath and regain strength.

He gained weight, his movements became normalized and only a slight limp could be observed.

Visitng First Aid Center, he decided to return home on foot, covering a distance of over 40 city blocks in an hour and a half, stopping only once to regain his strength. Three months later, Julio returned to his hometown with his body almost completely restored, and a visible change in personality from considerable skepticism and total lack of faith to the permanent use of a Rosary given to him by his relatives.

Did the unusual experience affect his life? No doubt, when we take the foregoing into consideration.
