Argentina: The "Mothership" Corroborated?
The blackout created by the alleged transit of a "mothership" over the northern Argentinean province of Salta can fairly be considered the most important UFO news story to emerge from that country this year. Corroboration for the "mothership"'s presence may have been found in a curious photograph analyzed by Jorge Luis Figueiras of the Fundación Argentina de Ovnilogia, and which we share with readers of Inexplicata.
Luis Burgos of FAO reports: "Our correspondent in the town of Comandante Luis Piedrabuena, in the province of Santa Cruz, has sent us an exceptional document showing a mothership that flew over the outskirts of that southern locality of our country. This "phantom UFO" was picked up by resident Jose Acosta as he took photos of his property, located 15 kilometers west of Piedrabuena and in the vicinity of the Santa Cruz River, at 1600 hours on November 24, 2009. The image shows a spindle-shaped object.
"According to calculations made by our analyst, Jorge Luis Figueiras, the object is at a distance of 7 kilometers and is among the typical cloud formations of the country, having an approximate altitude of 4000 meters. This gives the alleged airship a length of between 80 and 100 meters.
"What is truly significant, beyond the luminosity of its structure, is that it remained practically static between photographs 451 to 459, with a duration of 2 minutes and 29 seconds, before it "vanished" amazingly in the next two minutes!
"Conclusion: Either it sped away at a prodigious rate of speed or it became "invisible"...either way, it was no longer in the following photographs."
