Argentina: UFO Reportedly Appeared During Cerrillos Windstorm

Strong gusts of wind were recorded this afternoon in the community of Cerrillos. Some claim that a strange object was flying in a southeasterly direction just in front of the storm.

Reports of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) in the skies over Salta had not circulated for some time, but only a few hours before the year was over, many citizens of Cerrillos witnessed a strange phenomenon as a storm brewed in the area - a weather event that ultimately did not occur.

At around 15:30 today, according to a report by Mabel, who lives at the entrance to the town, "one could see a funnel-shaped formation heading in a southeasterly direction. It widened and narrowed, like a tornado."

It was precisely at that moment, as wind gusts ripped laundry off the clotheslines in the community known as "la Capital del Carnaval", more than one tree branch was also torn along with the metal roofs of flimsy constructions, "it was possible to see a strange object - dark, metallic - right in front of the storm front, to the southeast."

What struck witnesses the most was that the object was self-propelled. It glided swiftly and with great agility in right angles. Mabel recalls running into her home to grab an iPhone 6 and record the phenomenon, but upon returning outside it was all over. All that remained were questions on what could have happened and the provenance of the strange "artifact" that crossed the skies of the Lerma Valley, vanishing along with the winds and the storm.
