Uruguay: Explosions of Unknown Origin and Triangular UFO
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.

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: Red Cross Personnel Witness UFO over Guerrero
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.

Argentina: UFO Reported over Potrero de los Funes
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
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
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."
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.

Argentina: Enigmatic Brealito Lagoon and Recta de Tin-Tin
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
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.
