A History of UFOs over Mexico

 A History of UFOs over Mexico

 In the 1950s, aviator Cesar Lopez claimed having seen a saucer-shaped artifact, blue-green in color, as he flew over the Sierra de San Martin, from the city of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz. The pilot's testimony was added to a significant list of sightings in that state.

 Around that time, a flying saucer appeared over San Carlos Yautepec, Morelos. Local residents beheld the artifact in flight for some 15 minutes over their community, at a height of only a few meters.

 A strange craft was reported in the vicinity of Ciudad Madero, Tamaulipas, only days later. A cylinder-shaped device made itself known over the port of Tampico, subsequently vanishing before the eyes of dozens of people who claimed to have witnessed the phenomenon.

 Some time later, Baja California became the scenario for a constant flying saucer spectacle. Reference was made in a considerable number of communities to flights of multiple craft crossing the skies in different directions. Aerial entities sharing similar characteristics were also seen over San Luis Potosí.

 Iguala, Guerrero, yielded a case where witnesses claimed seeing how a UFO that flew overhead lost altitude scant kilometers from the city in 1967, in the early hours of the morning. The driver and passengers of a bus very nearly collided with the intruder.

 According to the driver, he was blinded by a light, causing him to bring the bus to a shuddering halt; at that very same moment, a second flash accompanied the flight of the craft in the darkness. Local authorities reported to the scene for an investigation, with no conclusive results ever being achieved.

 The 1970s brought UFO fever to Mexico City, where people clustered in different areas looking for strange artifacts in the skies.

 A number of testimonies pointed to the discovery of a saucer in the borough of Tlalpan in the late 1950s. Despite no further information having been disclosed on the discovery, the situation was a matter for conversation among local residence.

 Several stories circulated regarding the experiences of residents of the capital city with the allegedly otherworldly craft. Peasants in Xochimilco claimed having been chased by a circular vehicle; farmworkers were terrified to the extent of needing medical care.

 UFO activity intensified in the skies over Mexico City in September 1965. Multicolored lights were reported from various parts of the metropolis, flying in various directions, vanishing into the clouds.

 "The fact of the matter is that the spectacle appeared to be more on the ground than in the sky, given the vast amount of saucer seekers, all of them with their necks craned skyward," reported El Excelsior on 30 September.

 The number of so-called "skywatchers" - people watching the heavens - was on the increase, despite considerable skepticism on the subject. Traffic on streets and avenues ground to a halt, as happened on Bucareli Avenue, where cars practically stopped to look up when a vehicle wandered overhead at that precise moment.

 Evening fell on a normal day in the capital city. Suddenly, in the vicinity of Insurgentes Avenue, hundreds of people claimed seeing a swarm of luminous object engaging in high-speed acrobatics. Amid the confusion, traffic came to a stop. The situation caused a collective hysteria.

 Something similar transpired when a member of the Sociedad Astronómica Mexicana managed to capture a strange shape with his telescope, as it traveled ad different speeds, displaying erratic movements. The images were studied and debated by experts without their origin ever being established.

 Another case in Mexico City involved three architecture students of the La Salle University, who claimed having established communication with inhabitants of the third moon of Jupiter. According to their testimony, an invasion of Earth was in the cards in following months. The story appeared in Excélsior's Breaking News.

 Sightings remained a presence in the streets of the city in the following years. The Monumento a la Revolución was one of the most frequent sights. Many said that UFO activity could be seen almost constantly in that location.

 One such case became known in the late 1960s when an oval object, projecting yellow and red lights, became visible. A group of onlookers gathered around the monument - some with cameras, others with binoculars - to better observe the nocturnal phenomenon.

 When a laser beam was installed at this monument in 1997, a formation of luminous objects became visible, photographed by bystanders. The objects were aligned and appeared to make abrupt movements, but in perfect coordination.

 In an effort aimed at establishing the existence of intelligent life beyond Earth, humans have spent a long time watching the skies seeking an answer to que question of reality itself.

Argentina: The Incredible Images that Confirm the UFO Presence in Salta

In recent weeks, residents of San José de Metán and El Galpón submitted photos of alleged UFOs, taken under various circumstances and in different locations, to the local media. 

"We were working the fields at night when we saw a very strange light that appeared and disapperaed and made swift movements that are impossible for a drone, an airplane, or anything else known to us," said Martín Giménez, a resident of El Galpón.

Giménez took photos in which he made comparisons between stars and the alluring object. "This is something strange that I'd never seen before. Those with me were also startled," explained the farm worker.
In San José de Metán, photos of strange objects were also reported. Some of them cigarette-shaped and others resembling flying saucers.

"The sightings in Metán have been going on for a while, said Jaime Blurrun, an industrial engineer from Metán, an enthusiast who investigates these strange apparitions.

Miners Claim Having Photographed a UFO Near Llullaillaco Volcano

Days ago, the renowned Ovnis website published information from Tolar Grande, a locality in the department of Los Andes, some 400 km from the city of Salta.
According to reports, a group of workers in regions adjacent to the legendary Llullaillaco Volcano managed to photographed what could be a UFO in the middle of the sky.
When photographing a drilling unit, a bright green light can be seen in the distance. Upon closer inspection, a perfectly circular object - consisting of eight larger lights and a smaller one in the middle - becomes visible.
We can add to this sighting the one by Maria Holzinger from Bolivia. She claims having seen a similar object in March of this year in La Paz, the world's highest city.

[Note: This object also resembles the one seen in Ticul, Yucatan (Mexico) in the early '00s - Scott Corrales]

Argentina: A Letter to President Perón Regarding Flying Saucers (1952)


Argentina: A Letter to President Perón Regarding Flying Saucers

Luis Burgos writes: “We are making public a startling document from 1952 from the Archivo General de la Nación (National Archives) in which citizen ROQUE CERES requests an interview with then-president Juan Domingo Perón to apprise him about a ‘revolutionary’ aspect of the flying saucers of the time – information made available to him by a U.S. military man. Unfortunately, General Perón paid it no mind…it would have been interesting to hear the information provided by this researcher at the time, unhindered by anonymity or secrecy, as tends to be the case in this field. Don Ceres was quite a gentleman.


Letter from a citizen to President Juan D. Perón 1952. An idea about flying saucers.

Secretariat of Technical Affairs ID AR-AGN-SAT01-463-2276

Partial transcription:

Buenos Aires, May 6, 1952

His Excellency The President of the Nation: General Juan D. Perón

“The undersigned, Roque Ceres, citizen of Argentina, having residence at Las Bases 222 of this capital city, hereby requests a hearing to make you aware of the existence of an idea of mine related to the so-called “flying saucer” that the United States of America conceals as a military secret, being little more than a device whose operation is based on the Earth’s rotation, and presents several advantages over present day aircraft. Should I have the honor of being granted an interview by Your Excellency, I will explain how [this information] became known to the military attaché of the United States of America in Buenos Aires in the year 1945.

If I have hitherto not endeavored to present myself before the national authorities, it is because I am not a professional but rather an artisan from another walk of life, and thought I would not be taken seriously, as has always occurred in these matters, and has happened to me personally a long time ago with the disclosure of another idea, although I have had the satisfaction of seeing it come about after a number of years.

According what Your Excellency has said in recent speeches, in particular the radio broadcast of December 3rd in which the people were invited to contribute to the common effort toward a New Argentina, I am answering the call. I submitted an initiative, which I have been advised is under consideration. Emboldened by this, I would like to contribute yet again by submitting this idea, whose feasibility will be yours to decide…”

Argentina: The Ucumar Zupai Appears in Salta Yet Again












Source: Cronica (Argentina)

Date: 28-may-2023

Cronica Newsroom

The Shadowy "Ucumar" Appears in Salta, Causing Panic: "I Saw It, Vomited, and My Blood Pressure Went Up"

There is great concern in the northern reaches of the country on account of a sighting of the Ucumar, the Argentinean Bigfoot known for its beastly appearance, similar to that of a bear, merged with human features and of enormous size. Cronica HD spoke to a local correspondent.

Myth or reality? The fact is that the legend of the Ucumar resurfaced in the province of Salta. This Argentinean beast, resembling a bear with human features, went viral after a local smallholder had a face to face encounter with the creature - a sighting that caused him to vomit and experience overwhelming fear on account of its terrifying looks.

Correspondent Sebastian Cruz spoke with Cronica HD about the mystery that causes sleepless nights for locals, providing information on the looks of this mysterious beast, approximately 1.80 meters tall, resembling a bear combined with a man, and with fiery red eyes, as described by those who saw it up close.

The urban legend of Argentina's Bigfoot re-emerged following the eyewitness account of Angel Pacheco, the smallholder who claims to have seen it during a face-to-face encounter that lasted 20 minutes. "I saw it, it made me vomit, and my blood pressure went up," said the man about its beastly appearance and the terrifying look of its red eyes. He claims that he is not lying and has no reason to do so: "I'm well aware of what a bear looks like, and I also know what an Ucumar is."

Residents of the community of Metán in Salta claim having seen the beast wandering over the hills, rivers and lagoons. It was seen a total of 33 times in the area, although there is no audiovisual evidence up to now that will substantiate its existence; however, there is the eyewitness testimony of those who live in the fields, and confirm its presence.

The story came about with the experience of Rogelio Martinez in the year 2001, when he claimed seeing the gigantic creature in Metán. "I hunted so much that the Pachamama visited this punishment upon me so I would withdraw, and wouldn't hunt so much," the man stated to the media at the time.

The myth became widespread over the region, which covers the expanse of northern Argentina. Others who claim having seen it believe the Ucumar "has powerful sexual overtones" and as a rule behaves aggressively toward woman and young people.

[Note: Contrary to the article's indications, the existence of the Ucumar Zupai, as it is called, is not a recent phenomenon and goes back decades if not centuries, to be found in myths dating back to Inca times. In 1958, a group of campers had an Ucumar sighting at Rengo, 80 miles form Santiago de Chile. They described it as a giant 'monkey-man'. One of these witnesses, Carlos Manuel Soto, swore to police officers investigating the case that he had seen a 'man covered with hair' in Cordilleras, one of Chile's provinces. Earlier, in 1956, Claudio Spitch had found seventeen inch tracks on the Argentinean side of the Andean Range at an elevation in excess of 16 thousand feet. Similar tracks were later found in Salta, and residents of Tolor Grande heard unearthly screams emanating from the Curu-Curu mountains.]

Argentina: A Mass Sighting?



Argentina: A Mass Sighting?
By Luis Burgos
After 10 pm last night, we were alerted by Walter Romero (FAO La Plata) regarding a high-altitude phenomenon with bizarre characteristics over the western area of La Plata. Friends of his even submitted a few photographs of the event as seen from the vicinity of Olmos. Simultaneously, reports were received from various parts of southern Greater Buenos Aires, describing the same: Two tongues of flame, very large, remaining static for a few minutes, in nearly overcast skies, although a few stars were visible according to the witnesses respective locations. What we at first thought might be the "torches" of the YPF refinery, reflecting against the overcast skies (as has indeed been the case in other instances) was discarded.
But what was disconcerting was the fact that a similar phenomenon was reported in various parts of Mexico. Theories abound to suit all tastes, ranging from a supernova explosion to the re-entry of space junk, or the luminous gassing of a launch, including UFOs, obviously. We believe that the appropriate explanations will be received in coming hours. Everything is being checked.

Chile: A 1908 Chupacabras Case?


Chile: A 1908 Chupacabras Case?

This older information – much like the 1947 cases we have been presenting this month – hails from the archives of the late Luis Altamirano, one of Chile’s most respected UFO/Fortean researchers. Raul Núñez of the IIEE currently has the files under his custody and is sharing some of its most interesting contents with readers around the world. The name of the original author of the article is given as Gonzalo Tapia Diaz.

 The legend of the “vampires of Chañaral Alto” emerged that year (1908) in a small community located in the heart of Combarbalá (Chile’s 4th region).

 On the night of March 9th, over twenty goats were found slain in bizarre circumstances on the premises of livestock producer Rufino Malebrán. Upon examining their carcasses, he reached the chilling conclusion that the animals had been drained of their blood. And that was just the start. Two days later, a similar attack occurred, but this time at Esteban Contreras’ ranch. Bovines and horses alike were killed in identically strange circumstances.

 The chronicles say that an outsider --  Mañungo “el Pirquinero” (the Propector) newly arrived from the mining country of northern Chile – took it upon himself to unravel the mystery, keep a nocturnal watch over the ranches, hoping to come upon the culprit or culprits.  Over four months, this unknown quantity had exterminated hundreds of goats, sheep, cows, horses and poultry. It was then that someone claimed to have seen, at a distance, a crag near Chañaral Alto where huge vampire bats slept – a kind of truly giant bat.  Armed with this bit of information, Mañungo headed toward the indicated location. It was there – at noon in July 1908 – that he found a cavern, and learned that everything that had been said about this creature was true.

 But it remained to be seen if these natural creatures were indeed responsible for the slayings. Therefore, the prospector planned a new course of action, again hoping to catch them at work.

 And it was on one of these many evenings when, according to popular belief, the outsider learned the truth. But it is said that all his efforts were in vain, as his body was found the next day – lifeless and bearing two puncture marks, through which what little blood that remained in his body trickled out.

 Old-timers conveyed the legend to subsequent generations, who forgot it until stories of the Chupacabras, or the giant vampires, became news again, returning to commit their deeds with the same vigor and intensity that they did in a forgotten area of the 4th region in 1908
