Argentina: Strange Object Photographed over Parque Urquiza, ParanĂ¡

A resident of ParanĂ¡ photographed his daugter near Danza de la Flecha. Imagine his surprise when upon enlarging the photo, he saw a strange object in it. Sources from the Oro Verde Observatory say that they will look into the case.

Only days ago, Miguel Angel Osuna went to ParanĂ¡'s Parque Urquiza to take a picture of his daughter, who will be turning 15, in order use the mural as an image upon which party guests can leave their signatures and best wishes for the birthday girl.

The family chose the rock quarries located near Danza de la Flecha as a background, using the modern architecture of the Maran Suites & Towers Hotel as a backdrop.

They were astonished to learn, upon enlarging the image at a photo shop, that they had taken a picture of an unidentified flying object (UFO). In the image's background, to the right, it is possible to see a small point that raises suspicions upon being enlarged.

In an interview with Elonce TV, Osuna said that "the fellow [at the photo shop] told us there was a strange object in the photograph that was neither a helicopter nor an airplane." The photo was taken on October 21 around 17:00 hours.

Osuna used a digital camera and his father a professional one; the UFO appears in the photograph taken with the first device.

When consulted, Mariano Peter, with the Oro Grande Observatory, pointed out that "whenever strange things are seen in the sky, people ask us. We haven't received any queries up to now." Nonetheless, he stated that the original image

should be analyzed to ascertain that it was indeed a physical object, and its type. In this regard, he noted that if anyone saw something unusual on the date that the photo was taken, they should approach the observatory to discuss it.
