Argentina: A UFO Photo Sequence from Córdoba

Jorge Luis Figueras of the Fundacion Argentina de Ovnilogia (FAO) writes: “These two images correspond to photos taken in the Province of Cordoba with a Nikon camera in burst mode (a total of 16 photos in 22 seconds). The objects can be seen in one photo and not in the other. I then opted for superimposing the images by taking as a reference the wake left by an airplane, and I did this in two parts of Photos 1 through 8 and from 9 to 16 in the second group of shots. The objects are numbered according to the photo in which they can be seen (except for the one numbered “24”, which corresponds to Photo 14. It was a mistake on my part).
The names of the protagonists of the images are safely anonymous.
There is no way that these sightings can be mistaken for out-of-focus insects or birds, nor can they be attributed to a star or planet, given that they are images caputred by a powerful, high speed camera shutter and in burst mode. Some of the photos are at a rate of 2 per second. What can be seen in one image is no longer visible in the next, or at least doesn’t look the same.
This is an example of the large number of cases recorded all along 2008 in this region. It should also be noted that the person taking the pictures was never aware of the presence of these objects until the photos were downloaded to a PC.”
