SPAIN: A Teleportation Incident in Galicia?
By Marcelino Requejo

On May 7, 2007, Juan M.L. and Bernardo D.G. became the protagonists of a bizarre incident in the vicinity of Lugo. The events took place around 15:00 hours as they traveled in their car toward a sawmill located near the city. Apparently they were barely one kilometer from their destination at a location known as Piugos da Pena, and had just left behind a well-known automotive dealership, when the witnesses noticed a dense fog that appeared to emerge from their vehicle.

They pulled over on the shoulder to see what was going on. The smoke vanished. Only seconds after continuing their journey, they realized that they were in a completely different location from the one they had been before.

"We had no idea where we were," said Juan. "We were only meters away from the sawmill and we suddenly found ourselves next to a road sign that read: "Santa Eulalia de Bóveda". So, completely astonished, we decided to continue driving to Santa Eulalia to see if we could get to the sawmill from there."

In the wink of an eye, they had traversed the 6 kilometers that separate the environs of the sawmill and the detour to Santa Eulalia de Bóveda. While they looked for the way back, both men witnessed an odd phenomenon: the Sun appeared to be right in the middle of a gigantic, smoky triangle.

Peru: "He Appeared to Me"

The controversy rages on. Mariel Ramos Oré, 12, who suffers from stigmata and whose case has astonished the community of Chincha, revealed that Jesus Christ appeared in her home and asked her to seek unity among all Peruvians.

"He appeared in my home and asked me to seek unity among all Peruvians, so we'll quit fighting," said the girl, who bleeds from the palms of her hands and her feet, as well as her forehead, according to RPP Noticias.

It should be noted that the girl gives visitors pieces of cotton stained with her own blood; many of them say that she performs miracles and has healed them of their illnesses.

Stigmata represent a strange phenomenon that affects men and women alike, and whose bodies replicate the wounds of Christ during the fatal moments of his crucifixion.

Mariel Ramos Oré is a middle-school student in Colegio Santa Ana, Chincha. Her teachers and the school psychologist remark about her aggressive behavior and low grades.

According to the news story published by the Hoy Tampico newspaper on June 14, 2007, residents of the El Pueblo district called the 066 emergency number for help, as they claimed having seen a very strange animal on the prowl. They associated it with the Chupacabras, describing it as a hairy animal that walks on two legs and makes strange noises.

Members of the metropolitan police in the port of Tampico were mobilized shortly after one in the morning on Thursday, June 14, after having received the news by phone.

Police forces reported to a hill located next to Avenida Cuahutémoc and Calle Guadalupe, where the "Chupacabras" had allegedly been seen, but did not find it.

It should be noted that this occurred 8 hours before the Mexican president engaged in a tour of southern Tamaulipas.

Mexico: Airliner Personnel Sees Spherical UFO
**A report from Ana Luisa Cid**

According to a report from researcher Alfonso Salazar, the crew of Flight 735 saw a spherical UFO entering and exiting a cloud on Monday, June 11, 2007.

The sighting took place at 1500 hours when the Boeing 737-500 (registration XA-MAA) was flying through the air corridor at an altitude of 10,000 meters heading for Mexico City from the city of Huatulco in Oaxaca.

Captain Edwing Adame Cuevas, the first officer, was the first to notice the object, and in turn informed flight captain Hector Coss and mechanic Emmanuel Esquivel of the sighting.

Mr. Esquivel was able to see the UFO, but the commander, who was reading the instrument panels, did not.

Witnesses describe the object as a sphere with a metallic appearance and did not consent to releasing the airline's name.

Colombia: Images of Pasto UFO to be forwarded to NASA

Alberto Quijano, director of the Observatorio Astronomico de la Universidad de Narino, said that he will forward images of the unidentified object taken by his team to several NASA experts in an effort to discern its origin. In an interview with Caracol Radio, the astronomer said that object was definitively not a comet, because it did not follow a defined trajectory, and because no heavenly bodies of that type have been deteced in the area of the sky being studied.

Quijano indicated that the sequence of 400 photos taken of the UFO allowed him to ascertain its very strange behavior, as it remained practically motionless for an entire hour.

"It wasn't an airplane or a helicopter, because the telescope only permits the observation of objects that are far from the Earth's surface, and because the object had no motion for a long period of time," he explained.

The observatory's director explained that when there is talk of an unidentified flying object, reference is not always being made to the extraterrestrial presence.

The 400 sequential images were placed into an hour-long video to be sent to distinguished astronomers all over the world in order to find an explanation for this phenomenon.

Chile: Southern Chilean Lake Evaporated by UFO?

CHILE: Southern Chilean Lake Evaporated by UFO?

This is the outlandish explanation considered in the Andean nation to account for the disappearance of a body of water. Experts in the field claim that "extraterrestrial" activity has been detected in the area.

The Chilean government is thoroughly astonished by an unusual situation in the world which had a powerful impact on public opinion in Argentina and Chile. For this reason, government authorities requested the aid of geologists to find out what happened to the lake, located in the Tempanos Fjord, located 2000 kilometers southeast of Santiago de Chile, in the Bernardo O'Higgins National Park. The lake's disappearance was discovered on May 27, 2007, but was only made known on Wednesday. Theories are now circulating everywhere that are unusual, whimsical and not at all serious. There are even "experts" who believe that the water's disappearance could have been the result of "UFO suction".

Chilean Ufologist Rodrigo Fuenzalida stated that the theory that suggests the presence of extraterrestrials at the nameless lake has grounds. "We have on record that certain UFOs draw water. There is a case in Lago Colbún that is supported by eyewitness accounts from Carabineros (state police) and civilians who saw something hover over the lake and extract water," he noted.

The expert added that "over 60% of all UFO sightings in Chile occur in this region.

Another theory - perhaps the most respectable - indicates that a huge crack caused the southern lake to empty its contents in a mater of water, allowing water to flow "to the center of the Earth", according to Chilean newspaper Las Ultimas Noticias.

Chile: Possible UFO Detected Over the Cordillera

Date: 07.13.07

Felix Reales Vilca, a correspondent for Chilevision and TVN, recorded an unidentified flying object with his camcorder over the mining region of Dona Ines de Collahuasi. The video was taken while the newsman was at an elevation 3400 meters and 800 meters over the surface.

In the sky, in broad daylight and in the vicinity of the Urruputuncu Volcano, he managed to see a multicolored light that moved to and fro. He was standing with a group of miners, who were shocked by the sight. All indicated that it was an unidentified flying object, as the zone is not a route employed by airliners.
Reales turned the images over to TVN to have them examined by specialists in order to ascertain or dismiss the likelihood of the object being a UFO.

Reales explained that "he was engaged in recording work at the mining operations when the miners told me that there was a UFO. It could be clearly seen, but through the camera I could see that it was a powerful, multicolored light and we were facing an unidentified flying object."

Chile: Terrifying Chupacabras Attack in Vina del Mar

SOURCE: La Estrella (newspaper)
DATE : June 1, 2007


Creature appeared in the Recreo Sector
by Carla Olivares

Margarita Ugalde's family underwent an experience worthy of a horror movie in the early hours of Thursday morning in the Recreo sector of Vina del Mar after having a face-to-face encounter with the legendary and feared Chupacabras.

According to the woman's story, the event took place at around 4 in the morning when all were asleep and the powerful noise made by the strange animal shook them out of their slumber.

"An animal walked over the roof - it was as though it had come in flying and suddenly landed there. It sounded strong and dragged its wings, walking quickly and making a thundering noise, as though it were very heavy. It's just like the last time. The same happened years ago - we heard the same noises on the roof," explained Margarita Ugalde.

The family's chickens, kept in the backyard, were nervous and making loud crowing sounds, as though something was happening to them. One by one, the birds went quiet. Seven out of ten chickens were killed.

"I went to the backyard and I saw it. It was like a large bird, standing about a meter, with the bearing of a dwarf. It has feathers, wings and left footprints like those of a goat. It was looking for food, and I think it must've been hungry," she explained.

When the subject of the Chupacabras first emerged into public awareness, Margarita Ugalde experienced a similar situation - the same noises on the roof and the killings of animals. In that occasion, they were among those who experienced the greatest number of losses.

The woman is afraid. She is terrified by this experience. However, she feels sad about her hens, which she had raised from chicks. The birds present one or two small perforations, some on the neck, others on the wings or legs, but the similarity they share is that they are completely dry, without a drop of blood. The family decided to call Carabineros (Chilean State Police) to inspect the site in case there was something to be found.

"They told us it was that (the Chupacabras) and that they had never seen anything like it. They were overwhelmed as well," said the woman.

When the strange animal passed over the roof and reached the backyard, it broke the henhouse door and extracted the birds one by one, for a total of seven. When he was surprised by the homeowner, the Chupacabras took off, flying toward the hills.

Date: June 4, 2007

* Several witnesses were treated to the sight of strange lights. "It moved slowly and suddenly made a turn, making a rapid course change," said a local resident.
* Strange lights were seen last night over the [provincial] capital, said numerous witnesses who contacted this paper's newsroom. The incident occured at approximately 21:30 hours.

It has not been possible to determine the origin of the Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) up to now, although various informants agreed in their stories about what they were able to see. "My mother saw a white, somewhat dim light that made a rapid turn and changed course swiftly," said a resident of Yerba Buena.

Non-official sources told LA GACETA On Line that airport records do not show any flights over the skies of Tucumán at that time, with the exception of a landing by Austral AU2470, although the flight did not pass over the capital.

Another witness noted that the had seen an unidentified flying object "that moved in an irregular maner" and then disappeared.

Argentina: Sightings in Gualeguay and Colón

Source: Grupo COLOVNI
Date: May 25, 2007

It is public knowledge that heavenly bolides have been seen in concomitance with alleged UFO sightings. It is precisely that the print and television media - the latter with images - have turned it into a concern at the level of society as a whole, beyond the strictly ufological thinking of a handful of people who have made known their public and personal commitment to making case histories known. My intention here is to compile information aimed at covering a broader spectrum of the events recorded with these mass sightings, and my commitment is to retell specific events in areas to which I have access to investigate.

Mario Navarro, an employee at the Colón terminal, told me about his concern at seeing - in the company of his brother - a light in the island area facing the Port of Colón on Tuesday May 22 (2007) around 20:00 hours. He was able to see a light, first as a distant luminous point similar to a flashlight, but it was a powerful point that varied in size according to its intensity with regard to an imaginary central dot. They could also see that it traveled at a prodigious rate of speed, noting that what they were seeing was probably occurring in the mainland territory of the Republic of Uruguay, beyond the islands. Using the shadow of the treetops of a eucalyptus plantation in the horizon as a point of reference, they realized that the light suddenly began rising toward the treetops, and that its brilliance magnified at that time, exceeding the 12 meter height of the trees in that plantation, with a size comparable to that of the moon when it appears on the horizon. Its color ranged from intense blue at its core, expanding to white in its periphery. The total observation lasted 20 minutes. After that time, says Mario Daniel Navarro: "...it sort of turned off. Everything was left dark again..."

This isn't the first time that this phenomenon has occurred toward the islands and one Uruguayan territory in that direction. Other eyewitness accounts are completely related to this one, with witnesses describing similar manifestations.

Another Incredible event in Gualeguay
By Ramón Morgante

Last night on the ENIGMA VIRTUAL program hosted by Julio Degeneve on FM Melody 103.5, transmitted Thursdays at 22:00 hrs., Ramon Morgante, a UFO researcher who lives in the city of Gualeguay, Entre Rios, told listeners that: "...only a moments ago, around 19:25 hours, I was able to see and record a luminous object crossing the skies at high speed in a southeasterly direction from the city of Gualeguay. The object was moving from north to south at more or less 20 degrees toward the horizon. At that trajectory, and at 80 degrees, from my standpoint, the object incredibly changed course toward the east. It looked like a bluish-to-white sphere, like the flame of a kitchen burner. At that time several [objects] of this type began to appear from various directions and toward the same side. I was able to see a total of nine unidentified luminous objects with characteristics identical to the first one. I became aware, during these sightings, of what seemed to me a large star with an intensity comparable to that of Rigel, located 85 degrees to the south. It's color varied between orange to dark red. My surprise was that when I aimed the camera in that direction in order to record it, the alleged star turned off. It simply was no longer there..." Ramón also motioned that the observation lasted until 21:40 hours, approximately, including Flash-type phenomena. The entire observation was documented with a video camera.

Argentina: Bolide Over Rio Cuarto

Date: 05.25.07

Residents of Cordoba and Santa Fe claim to have seen, around 7 pm, "an enormous object in the sky" similar to "a blue and green ball" which drew the attenton of hundreds of perople who contacted the media to report the phenomenon.

"I did not see the object but it was without any doubt a bolide that entered the atmosphere and disintegrated. This is very common. They are highly brilliant and can be seen even in the daylight," said Jorge Koglan of the Liga de Astronomia. According to Koglan, this would have been "interplanetary material that hit the ground head-on. It must've occurred very high up, which accounts for its visibility in various locations. The greenish hue is associated with its components."

Moreover, Mariano Ribas, coordinator of the Planetarium's astronomy section, explained that "apparently what people saw was a small meteorite that entered the atmosphere at ful speed. It was a flash of lights and colors at high speed. All of this indicates that it was destroyed in the air. In any event a small fragment may have impacted the ground somewhere. The type of report indicates that it was a meteorite."

Astronomer Juan Puerta of the Cordoba Observatory said that "he saw a brightness, but it was fleeting," adding that when he heard the reports, he realized that it was a heavenly phenomenon. "It could have been a meteor shower" adding that the main day for the meteorite shower may May 4th. He noted, howevere, that the phenomenon could have extended beyond that date.

Ariel Perez, a resident of the city of Rosario, said that at 7:05 pm the backyard was lit with an intense blue light. He looked upward and saw that there was a line[in the sky] with a brownish color. The phenomenon lasted between 4 and 5 seconds.
