Cattle Mutilations: "Aliens Were Involved, Without a Doubt"

GENERAL SAN MARTIN, Argentina - Another animal was found mutilated this weekend, this time in a field adjacent to the community of General San Martin, belonging to Julio Zurbirgk, who believes the perpetrators are not human.

The bovine, a black Aberdeen Angus cow, showing the tell-tale signs of mutilation, was found over the weekend in a ranch some 15 kilometers south of the town by the property's owner.

According to Zurbrigk, the animal was missing its anus, tongue, eyes and jaws, displaying perfectly cauterized incisions. It was a cow about to give birth and in perfect health. The fetus remained inside it.

According to the livestock farmer: "Aliens were involved, without a doubt. This has been going for over 20 years and no one has offered any solutions. They must remove the organs aboard the spacecraft, because there was nothing strange to be found around the animal. One can also see that they must throw the animals from their craft, because they land with their legs backward."

He added that other animals avoid coming within 50 meters of the mutilated cow. "These cases are classic. I don't know how dogs are aware of them and come no closer."

He expressed surprise that no serious investigation had been conducted in this regard. "It's better that no investigation is performed than to do what they did years ago: put the blame on the red-muzzled mouse. Mice don't eat meat, for starters, and they don't exist. We have no doubt here that extraterrestrial beings are involved."

Colombia: UFO Present at the Calbuco Eruption?

The Calbuco Volcano (in Chile) began erupting on April 22 [2017] sending aloft a plume of gas and ash over 15 kilometers tall.

A video shows the exact moment of this brutal eruption and also shows an image that remains a mystery to this day.

According to the Gran Epoca website, it could be an unidentified flying object (UFO).

The recording was made public on the very same day as the eruption by Daniela Soto Toledo and it has had over four million views since then.

The surrounding areas affected by this eruption, such as La Ensenada, were covered with over forty centimeters of ash, which reached as far as Villa La Angostura, Bariloche and San Martin de los Andes in Argentina.

Mexico: More on the Acayucan "Lights"

Mexico: More on the Acayucan "Lights"
By Scott Corrales

The following is a brief transcription of a presentation by Roberto Montalvo of the Diario Vanguardia newspaper on the Expediente Punto Cero radio show hosted by Yohanan Díaz Vargas.

Roberto Montalvo says the following: "Between 8;30 and 9:30 pm the 911 line received phone calls requesting help from the manager of Rancho "El Sinaí" - a ranch occupied by at least three or four families. To be more specific, the ranch is located on the Acayucan Highway and is halfway along, so to speak. In this regard there is a video in which this gentleman describes a little of what was experienced by these families. He says they witnessed the descent of a light, a yellowish-white light, and at that moment, the entire household went outside to see what was going on. They stepped outside with flashlights and shone their lights on it. They said the unidentified flying object was behind a mango tree, and that's what prompted them to call the police. They state that the light was visible, but it practically vanished - the object vanished behind a mango tree. The property is quite extensive, and when the naval police arrived, they conducted a search that yielded no results. However, there must have been something to account for the secrecy. When the naval police conducted their search, they were afraid. A lone policeman was sent ahead with his rifle and shouted back, "Hey! come with me!" and they set off as if to ambush someone. But that's exactly what happened, what was said by the owner - I mean the manager, sorry - of Rancho "El Sinaí" located in Congregación Hidalgo."

Acayucan is located at 17.9492° N, 94.9146° W in the state of Veracruz, which has an extensive history of UFO sightings and encounters with non-human entities.

The following cases are abstracted from INEXPLICATA: UFOs IN LATIN AMERICA AND SPAIN:

On October 2, 1965, a fourteen year old girl in the city of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, ran away screaming in fright when a flying disk some twenty feet in diameter dropped out the heavens to hover directly over while issuing a soft, whistling sound. The object was surrounded by multicolored lights that appeared to dangle from it. After this daytime apparition, the object was seen over the same city again at night.

Between 8:00 and 8:30 p.m. on May 7, 1967, the Mexican states of Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Hidalgo, Veracruz were visited by a veritable celestial armada of UFOs: at least twenty individual blue, yellow and red lights flew in formation over the heads of thousands of bewildered onlookers. The formation was spearheaded by a colossal red saucer and leisurely appeared to be following a northwesterly course. Newspapers in these four states carried the story but no photographs of the formation. A similar occurrence took place on August 6, 1967, when the citizens of Poza Rica, Veracruz, were treated to the sight of several "waves" of unidentified flying objects -- each wave having its own color -- as they flew overhead to become lost over the Gulf of Mexico.

A year later, on September 18, 1968, Antonio Nieto-- a cab driver plowing the main avenue of the city of Coatepec -- thought that an otherwise slow night was coming to an end when he pulled over to pick up a fare, or so he thought: his would-be passenger turned out to be a black-clad figure with glowing hands and enormous cat-like eyes that glowed eerily in the taxi's lights as it stood on the curb. The terrified cab driver stepped on the gas and put as much distance as he could between himself and the frightful apparition.

As chance would have it, he ran into a fellow cabdriver who had also been hailed by the nightmarish apparition. Leaving one cab behind, both men set off in the other vehicle and went in search of a local journalist, who accompanied them to the spot where the improbable creature had last been seen. Their effort was rewarded by a third encounter with the entity, which now held in its glowing hands a crystal wand that emanated a radiance that hurt the eyes. A staff writer for Mexico City's Excelsior noted that in spite of the ufonauts' vaunted ability to cross space, they encountered the same difficulty as Earthlings when it came to hailing a cab.

High Strangeness could also be found in the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. On February 17, 1969, an unknown animal washed up on Veracruzan shores at a location known locally as "El Palmar de Susana" between the fishing communities of Tecolutla and Hautla. The authorities were dumbfounded by their find: the creature's head weighed approximately a ton, measuring 6 feet across and 4 feet from top to bottom. A 9- foot long “beak” that projected from the skull startled scientists who at first thought they were dealing with a decomposing whale carcass. The creature's hide was described as "wooly" and resistant to all manner of knives, machetes, axes and saws. Biologists Sergio García, Martín Contreras and Daniel Yutch were entrusted with studying the cryptid without reaching any conclusive results. According to Dr. Rafael Lara Palmeros, the University of California purchased the mystery remains, and their final whereabouts are equally enigmatic.

Mexico: UFO Supposedly Lands in Acayucan

***The alleged UFO landed near Congregación Hidalgo in the Municipality of Acayucan***

Newsroom/ San Andres Tuxtla, Veracruz - The sighting of an alleged unidentified flying object (UFO) gained traction on social media last night. The information was published on several groups and social networks within a matter of hours. Some news sites also shared the information.

Residents of Congregación Hidalgo reportedly saw a UFO descending in the vicinity of the Monte Sinaí ranch before approaching the community. The citizenry and Marcelo Arias, owner of the premises, alerted elements of the Secretariat of Public Safety (SSP) and the Naval Police.

Randulfo Urbano noted that his niece Maribel Trichi remarked about having seen "a light on the moon" which later descended.

Municipal agent Elulalio Trichi Morales told him it was quite possible that the sighting had taken place next to a pond at Monte Sinaí.

The manager of the "Sinaí" ranch informed the authorities and the media that an unidentified flying object had fallen in the area. He saw it as a large light that came out of the sky, being unable to identify it for what it was. Elements of the naval police reported to the scene along with reporters who testified to the story given by residents of the ranch, claiming to have seen something "fall" out of the sky.

An effort was made to light up the object with a flashlight as it lost itself among the trees, yet others preferred to remain in their homes, frightened by the situation.

Reports were also received of lights seen in other municipalities in the State's southern area. Images were shared on Facebook, allegedly taken by users of that social network, in the municipalities of Catemaco, San Andrés, San Juan Evangelista y Sayula, where lights were also visible.

HOAX: The Corrientes Humanoid

HOAX: The Corrientes Humanoid

As could well be expected, the photo of the humanoid entity supposedly photographed by police before it took a plunge into the Paraná River has turned out to be less than meets the eye.

Argentina's Orbita Cero Mendoza reported in its blog that the CIFAD center of the province of Corrientes had "uncovered the fraudulent nature of the video" from which the image was taken.

The image had a viral effect on social media and the Internet at large. It turns out to be a clip from the horror movie "O.V.N.I."

Orbita Cero Mendoza gives us the following information, which is translated below:

"Production company Decar Films reports that the Spanish independent film "O.V.N.I." is the story of an incredible experience recorded by four people who went to a forest in Robledo de Chavela to shoot a documentary on the UFO phenomenon. Their cameras picked up something unusual. The screenplay was written and directed by Diego Carballo & Daniel Carlón, starring Peio Arzak, Sergio Torres, Diego Carballo and Daniel Carlón. The CIFAD report not only highlights the spurious nature of the Parque Mitre alien, but also the viral effect it exerted [on the Internet]

Finding the party responsible for the hoax, says the blog, will be up to CIFAD. They also suggest the possibility that this might be part of some sort of "psychosocial experiment" which could be even more disquieting.

This brings to an end the story of the Corrientes Humanoid.

The CIFAD video is available at:

Argentina: Further Detials on the Parque Mitre "Alien"

Argentina: Further Details on The Parque Mitre "Alien"

[Editor's note: News items of this sort are titillating and often disappointing. Approach the subject matter with caution. Updates will be published as they appear.]

On Tuesday, September 13, the Argentinean media published the story of an event occurring in Parque Mitre, where a group of police officers attached to the 4th sheriff's office reported to the area where a group of teenagers reported the strange behavior of an "individual" prowling the surroundings.

When police cruiser 612 arrived on the scene to make contact with this alleged person, they were able to see a strange being that was immediately photographed with a cellphone camera. When police officers tried to approach the 'extraterrestrial being', they said it escaped, jumping into the water and vanishing from sight immediately.

This isn't the first time that beings of extraterrestrial origin have been photographed in Argentina, a country that appears to be a 'hotspot' for alien encounters and contact.

What is striking about the police report concerning the being's behavior is that it leaped into the water, leading us to believe that could be perfectly deployed under the sea, from which many people have seen UFOs emerging.

The photograph is of very high quality. We can perfectly make out the humanoid details - it is a bipedal being, without any apparent clothing, with eyes characteristic of the 'tall Greys' and with good musculature, possibly developed in our gravity. One could suppose this being has lived on our planet for many years to develop such muscles.

We are sharing this image so you can draw your own conclusions from what appears to be seemingly irrefutable evidence.

Radio station LT7AM 900 in the neighboring city of Corrientes published an event on its Facebook page that took place on Tuesday night in Corrientes's capital city. Close to where the abandoned ships can be found, personnel belong to the 4th sheriff's office reported to the location after having been tipped off to the presence of a 'strange person' in the area, behaving oddly. Reporting to the scene, officers aboard police cruiser 612 managed to "see the subject and when trying to identify it, saw a strange creature that was photographed with a cellphone camera." It subsequently dived into the water.

The photo attched is the same one that appears on the radio station's social media page. We have no way of telling whether it is true or falke. What we do notice is that the being was captured perfectly in the middle of the night.

Peru: Pilot Offers Further Details on 1980 Sighting

Oscar Santa María recalled his experience, which has been officially recorded by NASA

Commander Santa María of the Peruvian Air Force (FAP) was a guest on the "Tengo Algo Que Decirte" television program and disclosed further details about his UFO experience on 11 April 1980.

The Peruvian pilot disclosed that what he experienced in the skies over the department of Arequipa was incredible, as he pursued a UFO and opened fire against it for twenty-two minutes.

"No, they didn't attack me. They were eluding my fire. They seemed to know the range I was able to fire," said Cmdr. Santa María during the broadcast.

He said that some time later, in 2007, he learned that the case had been officially recorded by NASA.

"They reported it. I had no idea that it had been recorded, but I learned in 2007 that the United States had a record of the case."

It is known that the Peruvian pilot fired sixty-four rounds, but these had no effect whatsoever against the unidentified flying object. After his experience, Santa María has granted countless interviews and taken part in renowned television programs such as UFO HUNTERS, produced by The History Channel.

Cmdr. Santa María added that he saw another unidentified flying object flying high above the La Joya Base in Arequipa on December 25th, three years after his original experience.

Follow-Up: Photo from the Esquiú Case

Thursday, 14 September 2017: Professor Alberto Rufino Calderón, a resident of the department of Fray Mamerto Esquiú, claimed having witnessed and photographed a UFO in Pomancillo Este last Sunday (09.10). He stated that he had recently purchased two hectares of property in this location and was surveying the area when he saw an object in the sky, automatically taking a photo of it. As he said, this object had a special glow and a rounded shape. It bordered the slopes of the hill before making an unexpected southward turn, vanishing into the sky.

Argentina: An Alleged UFO over Carlos Paz

Following the appearance of a strange object in the skies over Carlos Paz, creating concern among city residents, a reader of El Diario submitted a photograph claiming to have captured the image of a UFO in the vicinity of Cerro de la Cruz.

The image taken by Sergio Soria can be added to the eyewitness testimony provided by Gonzalo Cufré to this media source. He spoke of the presence of an unidentified flying object in the vicinity of the mountain range surrounding the city.

The newsroom received a considerable number of messages discussing the hitherto unexplained phenomenon. "I was standing outside, in my back yard, when I saw a very bright light that wasn't shaped like a kite and fell vertically. I moved over by a few meters and saw it fall behind Cerro de la Cruz. The truth is that I can't imagine what it might have been," Cufré said.

Stories about sightings and close encounters with otherworldly beings go far back, and perhaps one of the best remembered cases involves "the visitor of the La Cuesta motel" on July 14, 1968, researched by Fabio Zerpa.

The protagonist of this episode was Maria Elodia Pretzel, who said she was at the location on San Martín avenue when she was visited by a strange being. She was 18, was known back then as "Paty" and worked with her father in the motel. She said that around one o'clock in the morning, her father was returning from having had supper with friends and was driving along Route 20 when he saw two red sources of light that caught his attention.

Upon reaching the hotel, he was startled to find the doors wide open and his daughter unconscious in bed. When asked what had happened, the young woman said that she had said farewell to two guests, gone back to the hotel kitchen and saw a blue light in the hallway. Approaching it, she was faced by a two meter tall human figure with blonde hair, blue eyes and cropped hair, wearing a one-piece suit made of a shiny, sparkling material.

[Editor's note: The Maria Elodia Pretzel case remains among the most controversial in South American UFO studies, with many voices in favor and against. For more information on this event, please consult: and]

Argentina: Tandil - Surrounded by Humanoids?

Source: El Editor Noticias en Línea
Date: 8 September 2017
An article by Juan Perone

Argentina: Tandil - Surrounded by Humanoids?

According to Luis Burgos, renowned expert and director of the Fundación Argentina de Ovnilogia, the city of Olavarría and its environs are frequented by humanoids. These entities have taken a liking to the area and visit it every so often, for reasons that remain unknown, but providing endless fuel for Burgos's research.

One thing that cannot be questioned, and it substantiated by statistics, is that the city of the Fortabat has the disconcerting privilege of being the chosen Argentinean soil for those strange figures described as tall and willowy, while described by others as diminutive elves standing no taller than 20 centimeters.

The fascination inspired by "beings with transparent legs" or "metallic suits" in the area extends to Hinojo, Sierras Bayas and Sierra Chica. It also reaches the borders of Tapalqué and Azul. But for the moment, Tandil has not merited this rare interstellar privilege.

And here is the first caveat. Burgos displays his knowledge and reverses the contempt shown by the common man who associates the term "humanoid" with extraterrestrial. As he explained to Elias El Hage on Radio Tandil's El Cómplice program, these beings could just as well hail from the unconceivable outer world as easily as "parallel universes." And that's not all. Don't be surprised that they may be 'time travelers' engaged in activities at a time and date that is not their own.

"We are very cautious," Burgos explained to El Hage. "We use the term humanoids to describe all entities similar to a human being that pilots a ship and lands." Point taken.

Olavarría's primacy is determined by statistics. A significant portion of 5500 cases are recorded in the neighboring area. Researchers have no need to trek to Mount Uritoco or to the mountains of Salta. They have everything they need in the province of Buenos Aires. And what's even better: dozens of residents who tell their stories of sightings, encounters, paralyzing beams of light, visits to spacecraft and 40 to 60 watt lamps that glow incandescently like fog lights in the presence of these beings. According to their stories, these elongated albino shadows parade across the countryside or the city's slums with stunning indifference.

"Olavarría is number one in the country," says Burgos without any hesitation. Research has been conducted on-site and the results appear startling. The story began even before the 1960s, reaching a peak in the 1990s. Alien visitation became commonplace in the area known for cement.

For the moment, Tandil doesn't have a place in this arrangement of sightings, landings and interstellar or inter-temporal contacts. Due to a still-unnamed law, humanoid visitors avoid this land of abundant grey granite where self-sufficiency and incredulity are in ample supply.

"It's a mystery that's yet to be solved," Burgos said, regarding this geographical predilection. Why is there so much for some and so little for others remains a hidden variable. Although in this land of beating stones, caves that shift location in Las Animas and ancient slayings of a mystical bent, no humanoid visits are needed to plant the seed of confusion and bewilderment.

Burgos's blog ( can be visited to glean detailed knowledge of cases and their disquieting details. The expert wonders once and again about the reason for the predilection, which adds up to "60 occupants seen in 12 events". "The reason for this? Perhaps nobody knows, although it would be necessary to delve into social considerations, political context, geographic resources, etcetera," he argues.

Unknown Biological Activity: Olavarría, Land of the Humanoids

Unknown Biological Activity: Olavarría - Land of the Humanoids
By Luis Burgos (FAO-ICOU) 20 July 2017
Translated by Scott Corrales, IHU


Olavarría is a prosperous cement producing town located in the central region of the Province of Buenos Aires, having a population of over 115,000. This community has been linked with UFOS since the brith of the phenomenon. It just so happened that only a few days after the first ever UFO sighting in Argentina - an event that took palce on 10 July 1947 in La Plata, there was already a new saucer report udnerway at Estación ROcha. Years later, in the midst of the 1954 flap, the fourth case involving a UFO landing occurred on its fields.

Setting aside the value judgements of what we may catalogue as a UFO in each case, whether the incidents are realiable, questionable or negative (in this case being mistaken perceptions, outright hoaxes or unconfirmed rumors, the true axis of the situation remains focused on that section of urban and rural areas in the Province of Buenos Aires that has reported incredible cases involving flying saucers and their occupants, namely:

24 July 1962 (Azul)

The first case involving humanoids in the region goes back half a century when local resident Ramón Farinelli witnesses the transit of a strange aerial device with two strange occupants inside it. The story became widely known through local radio broadcasts.

1963 (Pueblo Nuevo)

According to Local researcher Dante Rivera, two area residents saw a UFO at 0330 hours. They engaged in a sort of dialogue with two normal-looking entities manning the craft.

2 July 1968 (Sierra Chica)

Oscar H. Triart, 14 at the time, made contact with two characters who descended from a 'flying saucer' as he rode on horseback around 11:30 hours. According to Oscar, the strange individuals invited him to board the craft and left him a message written on paper. What was most striking about these visitors was that their legs were **transparent**. Three impressions were left on the ground where the object came to rest, forming a triangular shape. Lastly, at 23:15 hours, Sgt. Romero of the town's police station, and four others, witnessed the zig-zagging flight of a mysterious luminous object over the area where that morning's encounter had occurred.

11 July 1968 (Between the towns of Croatto and General Alvear)

At 0550, Agustín D'Onofrio, 68, and young Sixto Romero were traveling by car along Route 51 when two silver-clad entities paralyzed them with a beam of light at the same time the vehicle came to a halt and the car radio stopped working. According to the story provided by El Popular, a regional newspaper, the witnesses regained mobility once a flying luminous object sped away.

19 July 1968 (Arroyo Tapalque)

Only days after the previous events and within the framework of the unbeatable "1968 flap", a story circulated by El Popular caused a commotion in the media. At 0200 hours, three military men had opened fire on three tall humanoids in silvery outfits as they moved around a landed craft. According to what was reported, the intruders 'paralyzed' the soldiers with beams of light that issued from hand-held devices. Obviously, an 'official' denial did not take long to come about.

17 November 1969 (Croatto)

In the early hours of that morning, Aquilino Ramón Acosta, 44, in charge of the 'Mi Recuerdo' ranch, awoke abruptly when he became aware of strange movements on the property. What he saw was beyond his wildest imaginings: in the darkness he was able count the movement of **seventeen** outlines among the trees. These shapes lit up the property 'as if looking for something' with what appeared to be flashlights with luminous beams. But what struck the witness most were the intruders’ red-colored legs. They were transparent (a similarity with the Iriart Case) and they appeared to 'levitate' at times. Acosta was hospitalized and put under observation, subsequently suffering eye trouble.

14 May 1976 (Olavarría)

At 06:45, Nestor Urruti, 47, had an incredible experience involving his 1955 Mercedes Benz truck. When he reached the bridge on Route 226 and Av. Pringues, the streetlights went out, followed by those of his vehicle. According to Urruti, a sort of 'giant luminous oyster' abducted him as well as his truck. Forty-five minutes later, he 'appeared' at his place of employment, wobbling and blurting out a shocking story. While he did not see any occupants, he heard voices and messages transmitted telepathically within an unknown craft. The image of a sea horse was also present.

February 1985 (Azul)

A resident of Azul told the FAO about her friend's unusual experience. During daylight hours, right in the middle of the city's center, she saw two tiny people, normal looking, wearing clothing similar to that of the military, but whose height did not surpass 20 centimeters (7 inches). The two figures promptly went into a drain along the side of the street. When she told a local businessman about it, he told her that something similar had occurred before (?).

During the Eighties

Ms. Josefina L. told FAO about an unusual sighting along Route 51 around 0400 as her mother was taken in an ambulance from Bahia Blanca to La Plata. Unexpectedly, she and the driver saw a strange character, albeit normal looking and of average height, standing at the side of the road with his hands by his side. The figure glowed and projected considerable light. The ambulance driver did not stop to look.

29 April 1994 (Olavarría)

Mario Trevisán, 40, managed to record the passing of **twenty** silhouettes along a dirt road outside the city. The bodies, all having different shapes, were backlit by a neighboring house. They filed past at an astonishing speed that can only be seen in 'slow motion. Striking lights also form part of the video, which was edited down to twenty minutes by Trevisán, whose original recording is over two hours long. The incident became widely known after it was disseminated by FAO 15 years following the original events, when Mrs. Mabel, Trevisán's widow, provided the material to us.

13 August 1994 (Azul)

According to the story provided by a UFO study group in Buenos Aires, residents near Route 51 in the jurisdiction of Azul detected the presence of seven tall, mysterious beings prowling in the night.

21st Century Cases

Year 2000 (Olavarría)

In the aftermath of newspaper reports on "Humanoids in Olavarría" written in 2017, we have been contacted by many locals, thus allowing us to glean CE-3 reports from the past, such as a remarkable 'bedroom visitor' incident, the first known in the area, involving a mother and daughter whose identities are concealed to protect their privacy. These entities have apparently visited these witnesses for years, following a pattern of behavior that is identical to other events in Argentina and other countries around the world. Case under investigation.

December 2006 (Olavarría)

In a local farm, a woodsman woke up in the early hours of the morning for a drink of water and saw a light in the stables. Concerned, he reached for his shotgun and went to take a look. He saw two entities whose height did not exceed 1.50 meters (4'9"). Both were white-skinned and dressed exactly the same, in purplish metallic outfits. They suddenly 'vanished' in his presence.

January 2007 (Olavarría)

The caretakers of a recreational house witnessed the presence of mysterious black figures "running around the swimming pool at a remarkable speed". This was during summer nights and on more than one occasion.

Year 2012 (Between the towns of Las Flores and Azul)

Around 22:30 hours, Daniel and three friends drove from Las Flores to Azul in a Valiant III automobile along Route 51, which links both communities. When they passed a white truck on the opposite lane, they noticed to their astonishment that the vehicle was being chased by an entity that was 2.40 meters (7 feet) tall. It was human-looking, but also white and luminous.

Why Olavarría?

These then are all the records by space and time. It is very likely that other incidents transpired, but these have not yet become known. In fact, we have to close a case from 1955 in the area, which would have been the 'first in the series'. From now on it shall be necessary to wait for more cases from this enigmatic area. Everyone is free to draw their own conclusions. From the merely hypothetical perspective, is being located at the center of the [Province of Buenos Aires] a reason? Or should we look for matters pertaining to the intelligence governing the phenomenon? Are there indeed subterranean connections between the Sierras Bayas mountains and those of the Ventana range, or others that can provide the answer to this activity? This remains, in short, a true mystery to be solved. The most striking detail is that Olavarría has featured a higher number of entity cases that all of Uritorco, Victoria and Cachi, only to mention a few areas designated as 'active'. Perhaps the most similar case history would be that of La Pampa, but taking its geography as a whole, since this key province in the UFO phenomenon does not present any fixed location for bizarre entity sightings.

Comparative Ufology

Breaking down and comparing these Olavarrían cases with others of our exclusive databank, which contains 5500 Argentinean cases from 1947 to the present, is delightful. We can restate that every case has its corresponding background, and more so if these have taken place in the area under investigation.

Morphology. There is no common pattern to be found when going deeper into the creatures sighted, although there is a 'considerable strangeness' factor in that no cases involving Type 1 entities are on hand, that is to say, those involving tiny beings between 80 centimeters and one meter tall, with the exception of 1985's Azul case, in which witnesses described 'Lilliputian' entities that also form part of the phenomenon's humanoid case histories.

Transparent legs. Two cases involve entities with this morphological anomaly. 1968's Oscar Iriart case in Sierra Chica and the Aquilino Acosta sighting in Croatto, 1969. Events involving transparent limbs are very few on a global level.

Entity speed. This is not featured in Argentinean witness accounts, but it just so happens that out of the cases occurring in Olavarría, three of them involve "entities with unusual speed", such as the Mario Trevisán sighting (1994), the January 2007 event, and the sighting on Route 51 in 2012.

Sea horse. This striking sea creature seen by many witnesses in close encounters worldwide also reappears in the case of trucker Néstor Urruti in 1976, the only abduction episode in the region.

Beams of light. In the Croatto incident (1969), Aquilino saw the creatures "carrying something like flashlights in their hands" to scan the ground, and during the attack on the military detachment at Arroyo Tapalqué (1968), the Ufonauts also fired paralyzing beams at the soldiers. Identical beams are also fired at drivers traveling along Route 51 five days before the startling encounter with the military.

Unrelated entities on the road. The Hinojos case (1994) which occurred along Route 51 is identified with similar events that took place in other parts of our country, with the roads themselves bearing silent witness to the episodes.

Multiple landings
. Another interesting fact is the existence of three sightings with a fascinating number of entities, such as the seventeen figures described by Aquilino Acosta, the twenty-one silhouettes recorded by Mario Trevisán and the seven prowling around Azul in 1995. Argentina gives us remarkable accounts describing considerable numbers of UFO occupants on the ground - a fact to be kept in mind. Unknown biological activity remains afoot.
