Argentina: Locals Claim Seeing UFO in Rio Cuarto

DATE: January 15, 2007

Hundreds of local residents reported a strange flying object that traveled over the area in an unusual manner. They contacted a radio station to report on the luminous form that was visible in the sky.

Carlos Oyola, a spokesman for the Argentinean Air Force, said in a radio presentation that at the time that the undefined flying object was reported there were no flights scheduled, neither private, nor commercial, nor military.

Officially the Argentinean Air Force had no record of civil or military training flights at night, but the operator of the base's control tower saw an unidentified object that he was unable to identify.

In fact, the operator investigated the information on the object and attempted to communicate with it to request the altitude, registration, aircraft type and advise it of the corresponding air route, but there was no reply.

The object was sighted at 22:30 hours on Monday. According to those who saw it, it was a large object "with a more intensely yellow light than a satellite." It moved at high speed and flew from east to west in an elliptical manner.
