Argentina: UFO Turns Out the Lights in a Salta Community
The luminous flying object cross the skies of a town in the province of Salta. After it vanished, the locality was plunged into darkness and telephone service was interrupted. Service was restored nine hours later.
Yesterday at 2:00 a.m., a town in Salta with a population of nearly 20,000 residents known as Joaquin V. Gonzalez was left without electricity and cut off from telephone service. Local residents claim that it was all caused by an unidentified flying object (UFO)
At that time, and in that distant region of Salta, a luminous, elongated UFO crossed the skies with a southeasterly heading toward El Tunal. The object had intermittent, flashing lights and a fixed red beacon. The area was plunged into darkness shortly afterwards.
“It was terribly hot. Some people were eating ice cream while others sat around the outdoor tables of local restaurants,” said one witness.“Suddenly everyone saw a strange vehicle plow across the sky, completely illuminated, and a little bit later, there was a power failure. The phone lines were also rendered inoperative.”
Luis Burgos, a UFO expert, told Diario Popular that the “blackout occurred 14 to 20 minutes after the object was seen over Joaquin V. Gonzalez, and just as it hovered above the El Tunal power station. He explained that the object was “what we call a mothership, a sort of space aircraft carrier measuring no less than 200-300 meters long, and which usually issues smaller UFOs measuring between 8 and 10 meters in size, which later return to the [mothership].”
