Argentina: Unknown Object Flyby
UFO or Airplane? Another Strange Object Flies Over Community
[Contributing editor Guillermo Gimenez sends us an e-mail received by Quique Mario of the CEUFO organization regarding a low-altitude sighting of an unknown object]
"The purpose of my e-mail is to tell you that today (Thursday, July 2, 2009) while parked on a street in my town, and the time being exactly 18:47 hours, I was able to see a light that moved like an airplane, but at a very low altitude and following a route that is not customary for aircraft passing over our community.
"The light was similar to the morning star when it shines with great intensity - a strong bluish white color. It traveled without making any noise or buzzing that would identify it as an airplane. Nor did it change sizes or flash. It moved at low speed from SW to NE, taking some 5 minutes to cross the area (I timed it) and it vanished into the horizon without changing color or shape. Logically, it grew smaller as it faded into the distance.
"Unfortunately, i didn't have my camera on me, as I had gone out to carry out a transaction at a doctors' office. Well. I simply wanted to tell you what happened, since it appears from what has been published in the blogs, that something similar has occurred in Santa Rosa in recent years. Best regards to you."
Comment by Quique Mario: This is the importance of being able to maximize the use of the communication elements at our disposal. No sooner was the news published in the CEUFO blog that an observer in a neighboring community informed us of an event he had experienced this evening. This makes it possible to reconstruct such episodes immediately. We are grateful for this cooperation, since we can at least understand that the phenomenon "is there", to judge from so many witnesses.
The other point to be highlighted is that in the heartland, people are perfectly able to distinguish between a conventional phenomenon and an anomalous one. (Note: I wish to stress that the identity of the witnesses is kept confidential in order to safeguard them from the yellow press)
