Argentina: UFOs Reported in Southern Argentina

*** Witness was traveling between Tecka and Esquel ***
*** Says he was not frightened by the situation and that “the vehicles vanished” after a few minutes ***

Last Monday, a family from Caleta Olivia was heading for the cordilleran region of Chubut and managed to photograph a UFO, according to the protagonists of this unusual event.

Horacio Bordón, a municipal employee of Caleta Olivia, highlighted that he was in his car with his family headed for the city of Esquel. On the road between that city and Tecka, he saw the objects.

“We were driving along peacefully with my family and as we passed Tecka on National Route 40, something drew our attention in the sky. There are no explanations as to what it was. We only know that it was an unidentified flying object that protruded through the dense mantle of clouds covering the area. The time was around 13:00 hours,” he said.

Bordón says that he saw “at least four saucers in motion. At that moment I slowed down and asked my son to take pictures of them with his cellphone. We did that, and that’s why we decided to send you the pictures,” he adds.

Bordón says it isn’t the first time that he’s seen these strange objects, stating that “in previous years, on the road to Comodoro Rivadavia, we also witnessed strange lights,” he added.

The tourist from Caleta, who also contacted a Cordilleran newspaper to report his experience, stressed that at no point was he frightened by the situation and that the “vehicles vanished” after a few minutes.
