Argentina: Alleged Contactee Experience in Salta

Argentina: Alleged Contactee Experience in Salta

Residents of Rosario de La Frontera, in northwestern Salta Province, claim that "extraterrestrial contact" took place in recent days by exchanging light signals.

Ezequiel Alvarez, chief of the local volunteer firefighters of that community, managed to capture strange lights that turn on and off and then merge on his own cellphone. One appears at first and is joined by two more on the scene. "At 21:30 hours on Monday we received a call advising us of the presence of two strange lights on the banks of the Rosario River. We headed there and had a shocking experience."

In the recording, the Rosario fire chief explains how red lights flashed on and off from the object. Their intensity, color and trajectory was variable.

"We made signals at them with a flashlight and they replied," he stated. With full conviction and certainty, Chief Alvarez went a step further and added that extraterrestrials "are members of the Pleiadan civilization" (sic). He bases this belief on the fact that "they are in contact with Alejandro Godoy, a local resident who is also a UFO buff, and was told that two craft were in the vicinity of the Rosario River and that he should head for the site. That's how he was able to tell me about what happened later on," Alvarez explained.

"They choose whom they want to make contact with in these displays, regardless of the individual's social, cultural or religious status. Godoy is much involved with phenomena of this type," said Alvarez. "I went to the site immediately and felt great excitement. I have had many contact experiences with extraterrestrial craft, but this is the first time that a video has been recorded in which they can clearly be seen to greet us. We were in material contact with the ship," he added.

In his story, Alvarez claimed that a light was visible at first, and then others began to come in and out of that central point. "What happened in the Rosario River area was startling, because it was only two kilometers from the urban zone. This was a preparation of sorts. They were telling us that they were at our doorstep and knocking at the door. I have no question that they'll continue to materialize."

"What's happening to me is wonderful. But I think it's also a warning to humanity due to the wars and the use of nuclear and chemical weaponry," he observed. Regarding the sighting on the Rosario River area, he explained that the craft were over some trees, some fifteen meters tall. "They have allowed themselves to be recorded and documented in order that everyone may be aware of this display and eyewitness testimony."

Alvarez said there were many UFO sightings in the Rosario de la Frontera region. "There are many paranormal issues we can discuss. I can tell you there are various civilizations operating in Rosario de la Frontera. There are documented cases in the area of Duraznito, where locals and farmers saw them on the mountains," said the volunteer fire chief.

It is believed that the Pleiadans are a collective of entities from the seven stars we have come to know as the Pleiades, says the El Tribuno de Salta newspaper on its website. UFO theorists say they are our ancestors, as they contributed their DNA to bring about the human race. For that reason they are known as our seminal group. Their biology is like our own, although their technical and spiritual development is greater than Earth's. Pleiadans have their own spiritual masters who have in turn offered to contribute to our own evolution. Their preferred way of doing so is by sharing their knowledge, as they consider "the light" to be information and "the dark" to be the absence of information.

The Threat of UFO Invasion

The Threat of UFO Invasion
By Scott Corrales © 2018

"A communication disruption can only mean one thing: Invasion."
--Sio Bibble, Queen Amidala’s prime minister in Star Wars Episode I – Attack of the Clones

Despite the sage courtier’s assertion in the first installment of George Lucas’s second round of space epics, we might sooner believe that a planet-wide interruption of communications, or a collapse of the power grid, was due to a Carrington-level event more than an alien attack. Unless cloaking technology really exists, an alien fleet would be visible to our telescopes and hopefully our orbiting satellites, unless they too had been wiped out. Nevertheless, the opening rounds of an assault by hostile non-humans are the key moment of any science fiction movie. How would that translate into a real life event?

In November 1979, Thomas Muldoon, writing for the National Enquirer, published an article with the sensational headline: "Take UFOs Seriously or Be Prepared for Sneak Invasion by Space Aliens." Some may find it amusing to see this article included among the National Security Agency's cache of information on the subject of unidentified flying objects (, but the Enquirer was at the forefront of much UFO journalism in those days, as evidenced by the sterling work of the late Bob Pratt. The NSA report - "obtained exclusively by The ENQUIRER", as we are reminded - was aimed at dispelling the notion that UFOs were unworthy of scrutiny by the military/scientific establishment.

"If America does not start taking the sightings seriously, we leaver ourselves wide open to the possibility of a Pearl Harbor-type UFO invasion. The very fact that UFO phenomena have been witnessed all over the world from ancient times, and by considerable numbers of reputable scientists in recent times, now indicates rather strongly that UFOs are not all hoaxes, and if anything, rather than diminishing, the modern trend is toward increased reports from all sources."

So far so good. The nameless report, allegedly prepared in 1968, then moves on to scorn the "leisurely scientific approach" and urge a more determined response to fight the perceived threat of an alien invasion.

Carl Sagan had issued his own thoughts on the matter just two years earlier. “One of the primary motivations for the exploration of the New World,” he wrote, “was to convert the inhabitants to Christianity – peacefully if possible, forcefully if necessary. Can we exclude the possibility of an extraterrestrial evangelism? Can we conclude even darker motives? Might an extraterrestrial society want to be alone at the summit of galactic power and make a careful effort to crush prospective contenders? Or might there even be the cockroach response – to stamp out an alien creature simply because it is different?”

The concept of an interplanetary war in our times, a thought which admittedly smacks of the Cold War's "flying saucer" scare, has been seriously invoked by Gen. Douglas MacArthur in the 1950's and by President Ronald Reagan in the 1980's. NATO allegedly prepared a document evaluating the threat posed to existing conventional and military forces in the 1960's, conceding that "we virtually have no defense against their advanced technology." Serious researchers like the late Dr. Olavo Fontes analyzed the possibility that northern Brazil would be occupied by a UFO invasion force in the wake of the attack on the Itaipú garrison in 1965. in the Summer 1998 issue of the Samizdat newsletter, Brazilian researcher Oriel Farías told the world about the incredible and still little-known UFO wave that covered northeastern Brazil and which centered on the town of Guarabira. According to Farías, the outstanding characteristic of the '98 flap was the sheer variety of objects reported, ranging from standard disk-shaped craft to massive objects projecting powerful beams of light. "Lengths of 30 meters have been reported, the size of a 20-storey building," he writes. The Guarabira "invasion" began on March 3, 1998 and was spearheaded by 26 UFOs flying over the city at 6:45 p.m., when the lights went out in Guarabira, and lasting until 3:45 a.m., when power returned to the city. This blackout remains unexplained to this day.

Almost 500 witnesses all over France reported seeing a veritable invasion force of giant black triangles on November 5, 1990. In an article translated by author George Andrews from OVNI-MAGAZINE, a publication of the Banque Internationale de Données Ufologiques, it was said that "...The flight path of this armada of over 70 ships (that is the minimal figure) was at an altitude of 1000 meters (some 320 feet), sometimes over the horizon, flying a horizontal course after rapidly descending from the skies, following parallel trajectories distant from each other by 5 to 25 kilometers...Considering the facts of the matter altogether implies that a non-human intelligence and technology were responsible for the phenomena." The French space agency, CNES, based in Toulouse, ascribed the sightings to the disintegration of the Soviet Gorizont booster in the upper atmosphere, using a telex received from NASA to substantiate their claim, in spite of the serious discrepancies between the booster reentry times and those of the sightings. The sightings recorded by OVNI-MAGAZINE appeared to indicate toward craft of the same nature as those seen in Belgium and the U.S.: spotlights on the underside of the vehicle' hull, strobes which swept the ground, simultaneous activation and deactivation of the spotlights were among the common characteristics. It is interesting to note that when UFOs were reported above the Pyrenees on March 31 1993, the CNES once again sought to dismiss the sightings as the reentry of another Russian space booster that had lifted the "Cosmos" 2238 satellite into orbit the previous evening.

In 1981, Colin A. Phillips of UFO Research had the following words to share in a meeting held in Adelaide, Australia: “Thirty years after the great UFO invasion of Earth occurred, because no physical war was fought, the battle of the mind was lost. Those who have knowledge of this event and dare speak of it, have been drowned out with laughter and ridicule or destroyed by character assassination. The world audience with its provincial view, narrow horizons and vested interests, is not ready for this new concept. However, those who talked about swamp gas and degraded facts to clues, are still "sifting carefully through the evidence", creating UFO jargon, statistics and methods of investigation, trying to make a science of what all the time was a major historical event. The UFO visitations to Earth of the 1950's have subsided now and the real work of UFO groups should be to use the best evidence to inform governments and citizens of the real significance of this event on our future civilization. We should have an informed public in readiness should the events of the 1950’s be repeated.”

Mexico: Lens-Shaped UFO over MCIA

We have received the following information and image from aviation technician Alfonso Salazar: "A luminous UFO flying over the airport this Saturday, 14 April 2018, the time being 9:00 in the evening. I, Alfonso Salazar, in the company of three aviation technicians, witnessed a very bright flying object flying over Mexico City International Airport. The UFO was flying from West to East and beyond our atmosphere, according to calculations. It radiated an intense white light. The sighting lasted some 15 seconds before the UFO simply dimmed its light, becoming a shadow moving across the sky. Five minutes later, another object passed, projecting an intermittent white light, flying from north to south at an altitude of 50 feet. These were UFOs, without question. Atmospheric conditions were very good."

Argentina: Strange Creature Slays Two Dogs in Santa FE

The creature's shape is striking, as it has not been connected with any known animal. Residents of Totoras in the province of Santa Fe report that a creature is wandering the streets and has even slain two dogs.

The photograph, taken and night and somewhat blurry, has already made the rounds of social media to warn against the possible danger. An audio broadcast expains that the beast squared ofrf against a Pitbull and a German Shepherd who lost the encounter and died. The creature subsequently vanished.

[Note: Could it be the infamous Aguara Guazú (Chrysocyon brachyurus)? More information to follow as the story develops]

An interesting situation. Our colleagues Luis Burgos and Andrés Salvador have drawn our attention to the fact that the story has appeared in earlier instances. The following is from the OVNIS EN CORRIENTES website:

The image accompanying this article is used on others reporting similar situations that occurred elsewhere and must be taken with considerable skepticism.

The 6 April 2018 issue of El Tribuno de Tucumán reports "Strange creature killed two dogs and terrified residents of Totoras (Santa Fe)", adding: "A creature with terrifying features threatens residents of Totoras. A local resident states taht the beast fought with two dogs (a Pitbull and a German Shepherd) killing both of them.

La Gazeta do Cariri in the Brazilian state of Ceará for 04/2018 reportes "Alleged apparition of the Lobisomem in Exu-PE - terrifies local residents." This arises from the same initial broadcasting of the image that has occurred through Whatsapp.


04/09/2018 - Publication of this story on our Facebook page yielded an interesting crop of contributions, among which those from Ariel Maderna, Luis Jorge Salinas, Dendro Irime Cydar and Cristian Vera Duarte stand out.

Dentro Irime Cydar noticed that the image matches that of a character appearing in the book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling named Remus Lupin, showing him in his werewolf shape in the forbidden forest [].

As Dendro Irime Cydar points out, the image could have been modified (Photoshopped). Christan Vera Duarte shared the following image which affords a better view of the photo montage.

Our thanks to our friends for making us aware of the media hoax involved!

Argentina: Flying Object over the El Toro Viaduct (Salta)

A Report by Jaime Barrera

Argentina: Flying Object over the El Toro Viaduct (Salta)

The photo was a taken as an inexplicable flash in the sky. Upon further analysis, a grayish, oval object can be clearly seen overhead.

The viaduct where the Tren a las Nubes (Train to the Clouds) used to run was a mute witness to the sighting, which occurred on Saturday, March 31, around 12:30 p.m.

Diego Pastrana, a professional cameraman and a native of Rosario de Lerma, was touring the area on his motorcycle and made occasional stops to photograph the landscape, where the color green is predominant, with clouds above the high summits.

"I was taking photos and something flashed in the sky. When I tried to see what it was, there was nothing unusual overhead. But I was still full of wonder about the flash I had apparently not photographed," says the local resident.

Upon returning home to choose the photos taken with his iPhone 6, he was shocked to see something strange appear on the panoramic shot of the El Toro Viaduct.

It can be seen to be at a greater height than the viaduct's tracks -- 23 meters high, and 260 meters long from one side of the river to the other.

What is striking is that only a single photo captured the moment of the unidentified flying object fleeting manifestation.

"It was that momentary bright flash of unknown origin, immortalized in that photo. When zooming in on it, the shape can be clearly seen. It was a matter of seconds, maybe," he adds.

Pastrana says there was no one else in the area at the time. "What's more, I thought it was a drone or another unmanned aerial vehicle, but given its shape and the elevation involved, I doubt it's any one of those devices. Besides, there was no one else in the area. I doubt it was a mechanical device controlled by someone.

[We have the following comment from Luis Burgos at FAO-ICOU - "Obviously, there isn't much that can be done without the originals. The only thing that remains to be ruled out is the Google Balloon, which is flying over several Argentinean provinces (and this object only appared in a single shot). Then we would have to dispel doubts about what it resembles the most: a bird.]

Argentina: Cellphone Test Photo Reveals Possible Anomalous Object

"He tried to take a photo of an airliner. When he saw the photo he'd taken, he found an odd spot. The UFO flew over Córdoba during the holiday weekend."

There was considerable bustle in Córdoba over the holiday weekend due to the arrival of some tourists who decided to take advantage of Easter break to relax and see the sights. We never guessed that there would be some very special visitors among them.

A woman was near the Arco de Córdoba when she decided to test the zoom function on her cellphone and take a picture of an airliner flying over the area. In spite of the fact that the airplane does not appear, there is indeed a strange object in the sky, according to newspaper El Doce.

At first she thought it was a bug which appeared in the foreground when zoomed upon. However, it was something else. According to her son, they realized after closer inspection that it was a UFO.

Note: Researcher Luis Burgos advises us that there is less to see here than meets the eye. "The photo was taken in Bahia Blanca (Buenos Aires Province) years ago, in the early 2000s. This UFO shape has been used in hoaxes many times before." He also provides us with a photo of a similar object.

Peru: Researcher Exposes Secret UFO Sightings and Crashes

Peruvian researcher Mario Zegarra has exposed the concealment of UFO sightings and collisions over the Jorge Chavez Airport, the beaches of Lurín, Ventanilla, or in the traditional Costa Verde or all over Perú. He is requesting a declassification of the phenomenon.

UFOs at the Jorge Chavez Airport, right over at the beaches of Lurín, in Ventanilla or in the traditional Costa Verde. Yes, just so. We will be presenting the 11 cases of UFO sightings and crashes that researcher and ufologist Mario Zegarra claims took place not only in Lima, but all around Perú, and which have been concealed from the population for decades and throughout history for unknown reasons.

Zegarra maintains that these files were jealously guarded by the Dirección de Intereses Aeroespaciales (Office of Aerospatial Interests) of the Peruvian Air Force, currently known as DINAE. But far from making this information known the general public, in accordance with declassification protocols, it was made available to foreigners, who indeed had access to their sources, and took away state secrets.

UFOs at the Airport

Among the 11 cases we find number 00009, which reports the landing of three (3) UFOs on the apron of the runway at the Jorge Chavez International Airport in 1999. A number of witnesses on commercial airliners claimed having seen the UFOs, but when they were about to testify, the military forbade them from contacting the press. Those who took photographs of the event had them confiscated. It is even said some of the witnesses relocated to the United States and never returned to Perú.

The Mirage Fighters and the Costa Verde UFOs

In 1978, dozens witnessed how two Mirage fighters chased a pair of UFOs for 15 minutes from the Pescadores de Chorrillos beach on the Costa Verde in the days of the Morales Bermúdez military dictatorship. UFO crashes were also reported in Lurín in 1971, according to case number 00002. There was another collision in El Callao in 1980. A year later, FAP (Peruvian Air Force) recovered the remains of an oval-shaped UFO in the Ventanilla district, near the refinery.

Other Saucer Crashes

UFO sightings in 1952 were also reported, photographed by Domingo Trigoso in Puerto Maldonado. This case became world-famous, although the photographs were confiscated. In 1967, Captain Oswaldo Sanvitti sighted several UFOs while piloting a Fawcett commercial airliner. His crew also saw them, but was intimidated into discrediting the pilot.

The Santa María UFOs

The case involving pilot Santa María in Arequipa’s La Joya Case (1980) is among the most emblematic. This military man chased a UFO for nearly an hour and even fired several missiles at it. Once retired from the service, Santa María held several conferences, telling the story of his extraordinary encounter with an object that flew at speeds inconceivable to the human mind.

During the Humala Sabía Administration (2011-2016)

“They’re hiding things from us. During the Ollanta Humala administration, I presented documentation aimed at declassifying these documents, which are public in nature, to create awareness among the citizenry and open humanity’s eyes to this worldwide phenomenon. The population must know about its civil right to information. There was an official response at the time, but a Mexican citizen showed and took the DINAE documents without a by your leave,” says Mario Zegarra.

The next time you look at the sky, take a good look. It may be that the light and the intermittent object you’re seeing are not merely that. It could be an intelligence reminding us that we are not alone in this vast, infinitely lonely universe.

Argentina: Anomalous Object Photographed over Carlos Paz

Argentina: Anomalous Object Photographed over Carlos Paz.

The images are startling and speak for themselves.

Ariel Ortiz, a municipal worker from Villa Carlos Paz, reported having identified a strange object in the sky while walking along the old road to the San Roque Reservoir.

According to his testimony to El Diario de Carlos Paz, the man stopped his vehicle near a lookout at Camino de las 100 Curvas (Hundred Curve Road) and did not hesitate to take a photo of the remarkable object.

"Halfway along the road there were some classic cars parked at one of the lookouts. They were in peak condition, so I decided to take some photos of them. I spent some time in the area and didn't notice any drones in the air," Ortiz explained. He added that he only realized what he had photographed when he returned home.

The photos are startling and speak for themselves. "I enlarged them and realized there was a plate-shaped spot in the sky. Since the images were sequential, the object's displacement is clearly visible," said Ortiz.

This is not the first time that "strange" objects of an unspecified nature have been photographed. This is the case at Capilla del Monte, a locality considered the national "mecca" of alien sightings and encounters.
