Argentina: Police Encounter UFO in the town of Mercedes

Source: Planeta UFO and Noticias Mercedinas
Date: 10/30/06
The Grupo Investigador de Fenomenos Aeroespaciales reported a case that involved a police cruiser near the railroad tracks on Calle 10. A vehicle with strange lights passed over the car at an altitude of less than 200 meters.
The Grupo Investigador de Fenomenos Aeroespaciales Desconocidos (GIFAD)of this city, a member of the Red Argentina de Ovnilogia, reported a sighting of the phenomenon by the occupants of a police cruiser. The event occurred during the first week of October and left the protagonists perplexed due to its strangeness. While they were willing to speak about the event to members of GIFAD, they did not wish to disclose their identities. GIFAD went on to provide ample details about the phenomenon: during the first week of October 2006, around 23:00 hours, a police cruiser was engaged in its customary rounds along the extension of Calle 10 heading toward the cemetery. Upon reaching the railroad crossing, the squad car's two occupants saw "an intense light" on their left, hovering at low altitude over the fields.
"They stopped their vehicle to get a better look and noticed that it was an object that was moving slowly toward them. When it passed over the car, they ascertained that it was no more than 200 meters overhead. It was at that point that they noticed a dark circular structure with a red light at its core and not very far from it, a circle of continuous lights of a whitish-yellow hue. The sky was completely clear, which allowed them to determine that the dark mass's diameter was between 4 and 5 meters. Movement took place in absolute silence. The object continued its trajectory slowly until it vanished toward San Jacinto," said Alberto Brunetti, a member of GIFAD, regarding the information provided by the anonymous policemen.
Furthermore, the local ufologist mentioned a curious item of information which is similar to other "encounters" with alleged intelligent entities plowing the skies aboard unidentified vehicles. "As soon as the object was over their heads, one of the witnesses (an officer with several years of experience), contacted headquarters on the emergency channel and to his surprise, communication was established with the police station at Suipacha, when logically, he should have contacted the one in our city due to its proximity."
The police officer in question (who wishes to remain anonymous), in a conversation with Alberto Brunetti, also recalled seeing an anomalous light over the former Instituto Capitan Sarmiento seven or eight years ago.

Uruguay: Explosions of Unknown Origin and Triangular UFO

Source: Planeta UFO
Date: October 28, 2006
Julio Degeneve and Daniel Padilla, coordinators of the COLOVNI group, inform you that we are making inquiries with regard to an event that ocurred last night, that is, Thursday, October 26 around 23:05 hours. Two explosions rocked the cities of Colon and Paysandu in the neighboring shores of the Republic of Urugay. According to many eyewitness accounts, the apparent epicenter of this explosion was between both cities, with a more southerly location closer to the city of Paysandu (Uruguay). The event drew media attention, and in their questioning of government officials, such as the military detachment in Concepcion, Uruguay, the response was that "they were not engaged in maneuvers" although the media had already discussed this possibility. Some witnesses in Colon claimed that a powerful light could be seen toward the southeast of the city. The detonation was so powerful that it allegedly shattered windows in the city of Paysandu (Uruguay), as well as in Colon, but with fewer cases.
On the evening of that day, we were finishing up the "Enigma Virtual" radio show in which were discussing the considerable number of reports claiming that several witnesses had been able to see a gigantic triangular craft flying over the city without making a sound and at low altitude. Witnesses who contacted the radio show claimed having seen it between 03:00 and 04:00 in the morning flying in a South-North direction and at very slow speed, such that they were able to observe the lights beneath it, which were blue, white and yellow.

We can now say that we have begun requesting reports from people in both cities in order to cross-check stories and specifically locate the site of the explosion. Furthermore, we knew that on Thursday morning several people had contacted Radio LT11 in the city of Concepcion, Uruguay, on the Mary Charrier radio show, to report having seen several anomalous lights flying over the outskirts of the city and the city itself; they were inquiring if there were several airplanes flying over the area. We will continue our inquiries and keep you informed.

Peru: UFO Flies Over Ica and Huatyara
Engineers in Antapite Captured Image Showing Silvery Object

Cordova-Huatyara/Pablo Mamani Quispe

In the Huaytara Highlands on the border between Ica and Huancavelica, a group of engineers performing work for mining company Antapite managed to take a photo of an Unidentified Flying Object, commonly known as a UFO. As can be seen in the image, it was a silvery object that stands out against a clear blue sky and contrasts with the area's topography. Accoridng to Luis Alberto Villar Perez, identified with DNi 3057454, the photo was taken on September 22 from the Jatun Orcco mining project in the localities of Palmacancha, Huarpo and San Migel in the peasant district of Santiago de Chocorvos. The area is located at 4,300 meters above sea level in the province of Huaytara, Huancavelica. Said photos were taken by Wilber Manrique, a geologist from BISA Ingenieros.

"At the moment I took the photo, I didn't see anything strange at all. Rather, I was focusing on capturing the area of the demolition," recalls Manrique, adding that his digital camera's screen is small. "A load of material came out and I took several phots, a total of 12 images in a period of 4 to 5 minutes, with 20-30 second intervals."

From the place where the images were taken to where the place where the demolition blasts were taking place, there is a distance of 1300 meters, between the Leila Seam Trench 1 and the Luisa Seam Trench 2. "At that time I neither felt nor saw anything strange. Inspecting the images on 9/23 at 7 a.m., I was startled to find a UFO upon downloading the photos," he added. Wilber Manrique was in the company of Ing. Nestor Ccasa, Anthony Gomez and others.

MEXICO: UFO Sighting in Guerrero Witnessed by Red Cross Personnel

4 UFOs over Taxco in Broad Daylight

Taxco - For 20 minutes, four unidentified flying objects (UFOs) appeared over the city, traveling in a northeast to south direction as the sun shed its last few rays over the city, at 19:00 hours last monday, according to several residents.

At 19:10 hours, [a UFO] appeared for over two minutes in a "somewhat" descending form, and as it vanished into the distance, three more objects appeared from the opposite direction, as though they were about to collide, said Fernando Zaga, a resident of Los Jales. "The ones who recorded the UFO were Red Cross personnel. I saw them loading their camera," he said, adding, "several of us saw the vehicles, even with a certain amount of fear."

Miguel Angel Saenz Ocampo, a rescue worker of the international organization, when interviewed this morning by DIARIO 21, noted that after having witnessed the event, "only two more objects appeared from the same direction and one more, traveling from one side to another."

He added that the event "the likes of which he'd never seen before" had an approximate duration of 20 minutes.
Antonio Gomez Castrejon, also a member of the Red Cross, showed the reporter the images taken with his camcorder after the UFOs had appeared.

He rejected the possibility that they could have been airplanes, as no wings were visible, adding that they had a semi-oval shape, "somewhat rounded", made no noise, and [flew] at an estimated speed of 600-800 kmh.

"Airplanes fly along a defined route from which they do not stray, unless they have been hijacked or experience mechanical failures," he stated. "Nor do they cross paths with one another, much less pretending to collide." The images were taken from "the best angle" of the Red Cross facility, accompanied by two rescue workers.

Sergio Miguel Sandoval, a resident of La Florida, claimed having seen those objects that "seemed to travel from Cuernavaca to Iguala, or from the community of El Azul to Taxco el Viejo."

Gomez Castrejon said that his video will be shown in its entirety in the "Mitos, Leyendas y Enigmas" show that is broadcast on Saturdays on Landavision's news program, produced by Joaquin Cadena, by cable television.

MEXICO: Possible UFO over Puebla
A photo taken by renowned Mexican journalist Jose Luis Moreno Reyes in Puebla, Mexico, on October 4, 2006.
According to Mr. Moreno's account, he was on Kilometer 40 of the Atlixco-Izucar de Matamoros highway, ready to take photos of that section of road, since he was planning to write an article for his website about the paranormal events that have taken place in that area.
The time was approximately 11:45 am and as he was about to take a photo of an "ahuehuete" tree, he noticed that the sun's rays were shining off a flying object. He then decided to move to the center of the road to see it better and secure the evidence.
Jose Luis Moreno took two photos of the possible UFO and others where the cars on the road do not allow for good visibility. He used a Canon PowerShot A-310 camera.

Argentina: UFO Reported over Potrero de los Funes

DATE: October 10, 2006
by Pablo Oro
The event occurred on Sunday around 21:00 hours and was seen by a group of people that included employees from the Hotel Potrero de los Funes. They claim having seen a large silver light the size of a car over Quebrada de los Condores. A couple who owns a crafts shop in the Hotel was the first to see the object. They later informed everyone else in the lodging and the sighting was shared by all.
"They all saw it - the reception desk crew and some people who were also staying at the hotel," said the man named Juan Torres.

According to the report, the UFO "was over the mountain for over 20 minutes and since the night was clear, it was easily seen."

They initially speculated that it was an airplane, but given the object's passivity and its light, they realized they
were looking at something else.

"A light appeared suddenly and was surrounded by other lights. It seemed to head toward the hotel, but it remained stationary and then began turning on and off. Its intensity increased and decreased until it extinguished itself, leaving only a mark in the sky," said another hotel employee.

Argentina: Unusual Light Reported over Santa Rosa

Date: October 10, 2006

At 21:05 hours on October 10, 2006, residents of the Quintas Sur Sector, located between Santa Rosa and Toay, reported seeing a great light which vanished unexpectedly.

According to witnesses, upon leaving their home and remaining outside, chatting on the sidewalk, they saw how "a luminous spot appeared suddenly out of nowhere" appearing static for several minutes. It then "increased its size gradually until it reached a dimension or volume 10 times greater than the planet Venus at that hour."

The witnesses also noted that after having reached that size, "the luminosity began to contract, initiating a slow movement in a south-southeastern direction until it vanished."

The sighting had a duration of 10-15 seconds and the luminosity was "orange/yellow in color, with irregular borders like waves" and was located some 75 degrees over the horizon. Witnesses added that the light source "gave the impression of having rotated and aimed its light toward where they [the witnesses] were standing, prior to beginning its movement."

The witnesses (a man and a woman) are competent adults, living in the aforementioned sector of the capital city of La Pampa.

Uruguay: UFO Over Santa Lucia

SOURCE: El Pais - http://www.elpais.com.uy and Montevideo Portal - http://www.montevideo.com.uy
DATE: October 3, 2006
Mystery - "It was a round structure, silent and suspended in the air," recalls the young man, who now finds it hard to sleep
It was August 7 at 1:30 a.m. - Nico, as he is called by everyone, was returning from downtown Santa Lucia along Rodo Street on his bicycle. When Nicolas Diaz reached the railroad tracks and was about to cross them, he saw some strange lights in the field and thought they belonged to a patrol car. "I thought they were running someone down," he said.
However, when he came within 100 meters of the apparition, he found an object he had never seen before. A round structure, with lights, suspended a meter over the ground and completely silent.
Nicolas had a fright, but phoned his parents to share the experience -- and above all, so he wouldn't be dismissed as insane the next day.
From the roof of his house, the parents were able to see the UFO for some twenty minutes. "First it was still and then it started moving into the fields like this," explained the boy, making sliding gestures.

Some time later, he was the only one who was willing to tell his story to the press. He says the fear is still with him and that he has visions of the craft whenever he falls asleep. "If I see a shooting star, I already think its a UFO."
He is much more calm now, because he learned that others had already had UFO experiences in that field. "There are fishermen who work the river and have seen them."

In any event, he laments not having been able to take a picture of it with his cellphone or having phoned the local cable company. That will be the next time he steps into Santa Lucia's unknown dimension.

Mexico: Pilot Reports UFO

Source: www.analuisacid.com
Date: 10.06.06
According to a report by Mexican researcher Alfonso Salazar, Captain Luis Guillermo Cruz, first officer of a Boeing 737-200, registration XA-MAR, reported a tubular unidentified flying object with a metallic appearance directly over Lake Tequesquitengo in the Mexican state of Morelos.
The sighting occurred on September 16, 2006 at 14:00 hrs. during a flight from Huatulco to Mexico City along air corridor L-47. Weather conditions were clear with some clouds.
According to the witness, he was alerted by an intense reflection visible four miles away from the airline, toward the right side of the cabin. At first he thought it could be a glider, but as they approached, he had a clear observation of an unknown object.
He added that the tubular flying object crossed at the same altitude the airliner was flying but in the opposite direction and with a north/south trajectory, remaining a mile and a half distant from the airliner.
The object vanished 4 minutes later.

Mexico: Alleged Flying Entity Recorded Over Nuevo Leon

MEXICO: Alleged Flying Entity Recorded Over Nuevo Leon
*** A report from Ana Luisa Cid ***
On May 17, 2006, renowned Mexican research group Ovni Club Nuevo Leon was holding a meeting in the northern area of Cerro de las Mitras when they had the chance to witness a strange figure crossing the skies.
The image was captured by the camera of Diana Perla Chapa (the group's founder-director) and by Jose Ramon Villareal (member).
The alleged entity flew at constant speed, always at the same altitude, making a sudden 90 degree movement heading toward Cerro de la Silla, flying from north to south and subsequently from south to east.

During a close-up of the image, researchers noted that it appears to have a "dog" or "sheep" in its hands, according to Diana Perla Chapa's report. Witnesses state that total silence reigned over the area; not even crickets were audible.
Ovni Club Nuevo Leon presents 4 possible explanations for this event:
1. It could be some kind of man-made experimental device undergoing tests
2. It could be an abnormal entity that made itself visible due to a "reduction in its vibratory frequency"
3. An extraterrestrial entity flying a means of conveyance.
4. A witch
Ovni Club Nuevo Leon and Diana Perla Chapa have a good reputation for credibility, and for that reason I dismiss the possibility that a hoax could be involved. Upon inspecting the 4 minute-long video, a strange figure can be seen, appearing to wear a cloak and hood.
As background information, there have been reports in Nuevo Leon of unknown flying entities, the most relevant case being that of the "witch" reported by police officer Leonardo Samaniego.
Unless research proves otherwise, it is very likely that this is among the best Mexican evidence illustrating the "flying entity" phenomenon.

Argentina: Enigmatic Brealito Lagoon and Recta de Tin-Tin

Source: El Tribuno de Salta and Planeta UFO

Date: October 2, 2006

ARGENTINA: Enigmatic Brealito Lagoon and Recta de Tin-Tin

A mysterious region filled with odd stories and accounts of lights, UFOS and monsters reaches from El Cajoncillo to Brealito Lagoon in the departments of Cachi and Molinos.

The area's landscape, which begins at the very heart of the Los Cardones National Park, assists in letting human imagination run away: the traveler is surrounded by a marvelous landscape at Cuesta del Obispo, runs into Recta de Tin-Tin, crosses the town of Seclantas and reaches the edges of Brealito Lagoon, resembling a landscape from another world. Recta de Tin-Tin is a perfectly straight stretch of road that extends for 11 kilometers and forms part of the ancient Inca road network, employed centuries ago to link the various points of the Tahuantisuyo, whose capital was in Cuzco.

In the 1980's a team from Diario El Tribuno made a report on Brealito Lagoon and gathered accounts that have not been forgotten to this very day. At that time, a police officer from Seclantas - now deceased - known as Gringo Guzman, told the detailed story of an apparition that caused him to lose sleep until the end of his days.

An avid fisherman, he would visit the lagoon regularly, as it was only 24 kilometers from his home. At that time, he made ready to spend a night at the edge of the enormous pond, which has a capricious shape and is surrounded by mineral hills and whose southering wing stretches into a rocky defile. He lit his lamp and settled under a gigantic black carob tree (a characteristic species of the area's damp microclimate, with red soil and green thistles. He cast his line and suddenly the waters became agitated. A splashing sound was heard as something large and heavy began to move around. Curiosity got the better of him and he did his best to see what it was; at the border of light and darkness he thought he saw a large dark figure, but the image was fleeting. As he didn't quite understand what had occurred, he calmed himself and prepared to cast his line into the water again, but as he was about to do so, the splashing returned--this time much stronger-- and no lamp was needed to see the gigantic figure that emerged scant meters away from him.

He was able to make out the shape of what he said was a gigantic reptile or "pejerrey" with a scaly back. Horrified, the man ran away, falling several time. Although -- he said -- once he had recovered from the shock, he did his best to calm down and return for his belongings, he found them completely soaked in water, in spite of being 4 meters away from the water's edge, as though swamped by a gigantic wave.

Brealito is surrounded by scattered houses occupied by local residents, no more than 10 of them. Many in Seclantas report that the site is filled with eyewitnesses to very strange events.

Gloria Aban, former national deputy and a member of one of the oldest families in the region, said that: "Brealito is a source of phenomena that have been reported since the dawn of time" adding that there are two key individuals living near the lagoon -- Tomas Pastrana and Estanislao Lopez -- who have seen the monster. Aban is a physician and currently a member of the Provincial Insurance Board.

Mrs. Funes, owner of the "La Rueda" hostelry in Seclantas, claims that executives from the now-vanished COTAS corporation(which was the largest passenger transportation service in the capital 20 years ago) told her of having had an experience similar to that of Gringo Guzman. These businessmen visited the area every year to spend a few vacation days with their families, and after running into the creature, made a quick getaway and never again returned to the site.

They told her that while sitting at the lagoon's edge, the children's attention was drawn by a strange waterspout that was heading toward them. The waterspout made an ululating sound that echoed amid the rocky mountains that surround the lagoon. Amid the water tornado that came out of nowhere on a calm, sunny morning, they claimed to have seen a semi human figure of colossal size. According to their story, the entity had the figure of a woman covered by a watery veil. It isn't hard to imagine how those people jumped aboard their vehicle and never returned.

Geographer Flavio Aban, who knows the area very well, has attempted to get to the bottom of the area's history and mysteries with the aid of one of his nine brothers, Fido Aban. "...this area contains not only the mystery that concerns you (the journalists). It is also customary for local residents to see strange lights in the mountains, especially the ones toward the west. Large luminous eyes that cover the area without their origin ever being determined. No one can deny that there isn't at least one mysterious presence living under the waters of Brealito, or that something unknown is taking place there. We have determined the existence of strange movements in the water, which repeat frequently at dusk. These movements cannot be due to a current, unless it is a source of energy that comes from the depths. Furthermore, the lagoon's waters are brackish, have a strange mineral taste, and their true depth has never been ascertained."

Walter Aban, mayor of Seclantas (a distant relative of Gloria, Fido and Flavio) does not believe in the monster, but agrees that inexplicable things do happen in the area. "Look, anyone traveling between Salta and Seclantas knows that strange lights appear in the sky from the Recta de Tin-Tin onwards. Are they UFOs? I don't know. But I can assure it's no fantasy."

Aban's words were confirmed by another area mayor, Hector Legoburo of Payogasta. "It's true, the Recta de Tin-Tin is a mysterious place at night. The lights that can be seen crossing the skies overhead are not a product of human engineering. Traveling from Salta to Payogasta I witnessed, I was tailed by a luminous object for a number of minutes. The people with me thought it was the lights of a construction vehicle, but it was impossible for a wheeled machine. And when the glare became brightest, we saw it vanish into the sky. I have no explanation for this."

Puerto Rico: Hairy Entity in Camuy

DATE: 10.02.06
PUERTO RICO: Camuy Girl Terrified by Hairy Creature Materialization
Location: Camuy
Date: An evening between September 19-22, 2006
Time: Between 10:30 and 11:00 PM
Witness: Daughter of a paranormal researcher in Puerto Rico (names on file with Ovni.net)
Age: 7 (researcher describes child as being serious and mature for her age; not given to falsification)
Brief Description:A set of red eyes came in through the window and materialized into a hairy creature beside the girl. Upon materialization, its estimated height was 5 feet 6 inches (judging by the girl's mother's height), all hairy "like lions" (black fur), human shaped mouth with dirty canine-like teeth, pointed ears like those of a dog, hairy human hands with canine-like nails (claws), human feet. It growled, was unclothed, and tried to grab her. The entity did not issue any odor or stench. No temperature changes were reported.
Brief Summary: At around 10:30 to 11:00 PM., the girl's mother (the fiancee of a well-known paranormal researcher), told the girl to go to her grandparent's bathroom to brush her teeth and go to bed. The girl went out of the room in search of her mother, terrified and weeping, trembling with fear. She told her mother that "the Chupacabras" was in her grandparents room and had tried to seize her. After the mother calmed her down, the girl told her what happened: she entered her grandparent's room (which has a window facing a school - eastward exposure) and was about to open the bathroom door when she saw red eyes drift into the window.

The eyes materialized on her right into something she described as having her mother's height (5'6"), hairy all over like a lion (black fur), man-shaped mouth with dirty canine-like teeth, pointed ears like those of a dog, hairy human hands with canine-like nails (claws), human feet. It growled, was unclothed, and tried to grab her. She started to run and scream. When she ran toward the bedroom's exit, the creature followed, making as if to grab her. She shut the bedroom door behind her and ran to her mother. The paranormal researcher interviewed the child several times and her statement of the facts did not change; it was obvious that remembering the events inspired fear. When Lucy Guzman interviewed the mother and child two weeks later (October 2, 2006), the girl retold her experience calmly and the version of the events was identical to the mother's. Guzman inquired if any good or bad odors had been present, and the girl replied that "it neither smelled nor stank." Guzman asked if the room had grown hot or cold, and the girl replied that the air conditioner had been on at the time, remaining at the same level of coolness throughout.
Comments: The child reported having felt something watching her earlier, but was unaware of what it could be. The mother (a serious young woman) is sensitive and has clairaudient and clairvoyant abilities. It appears that the child has inherited this gift).
Note: The researcher has a sketch of something similar to what the girl reported seeing. It was a case from many years ago in the same area. The report and sketch appeared in the defunct "El Mundo" newspaper. At the time, residents of the site had gone out to find the creature but could not find it. The researcher will try to find this information (on microfilm) and will print it to show it to the child and confirm if that is what it saw.
Reported by: Mother and daughter to the anonymous researcher; mother and daughter to Lucy Guzman, Ovni.net.
