Argentina: UFO Wave Ongoing in the "Western Corridor"

Initially unnoticed, a photograph depicting four luminous dots in the skies over Moreno prompted action once again by researchers of the UFO phenomenon, involving the repeated manifestations of unidentified flying objects of unknown origin in the so-called "Western Corridor", where residents from a variety of locations in the outlying districts have reported and recorded said manifestations.

Fabian Torti, director of the Grupo Tecnico de Asistencia Psicologica OVNI (GRUTAP) told DIARIO POPULAR that for over seven months since the subject became a fixture after a series of cases in Ituzaingó, "phenomena have repeated themselves" with sightings of mysterious flying objects that his group in no way definitively classifies as extraterrestrial presences.

In this regard, Torti noted that the phenomenon also brought about a massive influx of eyewitness accounts and stories involving sightings and unique events related to these manfistations, everything ranging from "the disappearance of animals to abductions", subjects that GRUTAP places under scrutiny "given the application of psychological criteria with which to study such cases."

One of the manifestations received by the agency these days was a photo taken by social psychologist Gabriela Almirón, a member of the Group, who took a sequence of photos from the locality of Moreno. She was not aware until much later, however, that one of the images presented four points with a luminous appearance. One of them was shaped like a delta wing and another resembled an inverted "T".

According to Torti, Almirón has been a member of GRUTAP for ten years and while she is involved with studying eyewitness cases from a psychological standpoint, "[she] never imagined that she would capture such an image". As to the numerous cases recorded in the corridor, he states that "if only two out of ten cases cannot be explained, then that two per cent indicates something."
