Bigfoot: Fear Grips San Luis Potosí's Huasteca Region(Mexico)Over Alleged Sighting in the Tenek Indigenous Lands

Local dwellers claim seeing the creature and even photographed it with their cellphones.

"I was with my husband, playing with our child, when we heard a boom, like an explosion. Then we looked toward the hillside, from where we thought the sound originated. We thought it was a landslide," said Mrs. Antonia, who could not believe what her eyes were seeing: a tall, thin man. "Like a giant."

"The time was around five thirty in the afternoon; I was very frightened. My husband mocked me, but when he saw that 'thing' he got scared and said we should get into the house, even though we were far away." This is the account of a young native woman who claims having seen something strange - a large being, immense, looking like a giant. Antonia's story matches the testimony given by other residents of the "Ojo de Agua" ejido and adjacent localities in the municipality of Ciudad Valles in San Luis Potosí's Huasteca Region.

The event caused fear and uncertainty among residents of the Tének indigenous region, frightened by the prospect of the giant in the mountains. The news was disseminated through photographs. Given the amount of interest generated, an investigation into the subject has been requested.

According to the statement issued by Agustín Hernández, a representative of the indigenous area, there has been much talk about the enormous figure appearing in the heights of the mountain range. Elders have said nothing in this regard, and it is unknown whether the following is true, but they associate it with UFO sightings as well as changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Most of the inhabitants of the Tének Mountains, specifically the occupants of the "Ojo de Agua" ejido, have expressed their concern at these events.

The elders are the most given to believe in these subjects, but have remained silent. According to most authorities, there has never been a sighting of this kind before, which has caused a sensation. Other stories suggest an agreement within the tribe to "keep silent."

Allegedly three photos are in circulation, taken with a difference of 1 or 2 minutes. The figure of a giant can be seen in the first and second.

A shadow in the mountains, a vision between the trees, a monstrous man living far from everyone, sought out by hundreds without being found beyond tracks on the ground. This is the legend of Bigfoot throughout the world. The story of the abominable snowman or Yeti prevail in the colder regions of the world. The subject had never come up in San Luis Potosí before, much less in Tének native culture, whose traditions lean more toward nahuales (skinwalkers).

Colombia: UFO Clearly Visible in the Skies of Medellín

A Facebook user published a UFO seen in broad daylight on her social media page. One of the clearest images of the phenomenon to be seen. While videos of this sort have multiplied online in recent days, the difference here is the clarity with which the images can be seen. Not only that, it was recorded in broad daylight, unlike most videos, which are largely recorded at night.

The video has a 31-second duration and an object can be see floating in a deep blue sky. The object is not static - it moves and appears to spin on its own axis.

The anonymous user also took several photographs, which show an oval-shaped obejct, similar to the image of UFOs commonly depicted in many motion pictures.

"The object hovered vertically and then horizontally," wrote the Facebook user. The video was taken from the La América district.

Argentina: UFO Startles Residents of Bella Vista

On the evening of Tuesday, May 12, a resident of Bella Vista recorded a UFO that startled many locals.

"I was in my back yard with my daughter. We saw these strange lights in the sky, and I began recording them immediately," says the video's author.

The man says he submitted the images to the Ampimpa Astronomical Observatory in Tucumán for their perusal.

"They replied that what appears in the video does not seem to be an astronomical event, and does not involve satellites," he explained.

[The video shows an object firing an apparent beam at the ground]

Transcription of the Video:
"Look at that...look at that...that one, it's coming. Look...look...are you watching? What are they going to say now? First there was that one, then this one, and this one was it turned up now watch it go...the time is seven fifteen in the is Wednesday (corrects himself) today is Tuesday. Look, look at it quickly! Quickly, this is nuts. Look, Gladys. What are you looking at? No, last night there were two around midnight, but over by the hillside, the north. Now look at this one. (Excitedly) There's goes another! Look, it's going faster. Look at the laser! No, look, look!
(Girl asks: has one come out of the craft?) Look, it's crossed over there. (Girl: There's another!) Yes, another one's appeared. Look, this is nuts, incredible. But that one was slow, and this one's fast. Here we are, with my daughter Bernardita."

Argentina: Something Fell from the Sky in Carhué

Argentina: Something Fell from the Sky in Carhué

The fall or alleged descent of a strange object in the province of Buenos Aires became known thanks to local residents and truck drivers transiting through the area and who contacted the Centro de Estudios UFO (CEUFO). The episode took place in the early hours of last Saturday, May 9, to the north of the locality of Carhué. Witnesses allegedly saw "a shadow descending very quickly, which then made an abrupt turn toward Lake Epecuén."

Vehicles with a police escort were seen arriving shortly after at the edge of the lake and near the place where the "shadow" had purportedly fallen. A truck driver passing through the area said: "I finally made it to Carhué after multiple traffic checkpoints. They had already cautioned me to try to stop as little as possible, so I have everything in the truck with me.

"I stopped in Carhué for a while by the train tracks to have something to eat," he added, stressing that "it was very dark, and I suddenly saw a fleet of vehicles coming with blue lights. Not sure if they were police of Gendarmerie, but they were going fast," he said. After dinner: "I continued my trip, but just 15 kilometers short of Carhué, the road was blocked and they asked me to wait."

Two hours later "they allowed me to continue, and where the road comes near the lake, I could see a lot of movement not only on the shore, but some 2 kilometers into the lake itself. I stopped for a minute to check whether something could be seen, but a guy in uniform appeared out of nowhere and urged me to keep going."

Local police neither confirmed nor denied the episode. Given the lockdown in which the country finds itself, it is impossible to travel to survey the area. But at this state of affairs, and based on the accounts of people who saw the vehicles guarded by police units, we can say that "something did fall" there.

If so, this brings to mind the episode recorded on September 26, 2011 in Monte Grande, where something "fell from the sky" and caused the deaths of two people, leaving behind a large crater and prompting an intervention by police and fire-fighting units, as well as the presence of a convoy of civilian personnel that did not speak Spanish. They loaded "something" into one of the vehicles and left. The official explanation given to the event was that a "pizza oven" had exploded. This explanation convinced no one, much less local residents who witnessed the phenomenon.

Spain: Remembering Galicia's 1987 UFO Wave

A triangular UFO may have flown over the town of Muros 33 years ago.

This, at least, is the belief held by those who witnessed a strange object in early May 1987. The witnesses lived in the heart of Vistavós, described as a lovely village on a hillside. The family of Domingo Beiro, his wife Belén, and his children Dora and Tony were the first to witness, near their home, the strange object issuing a potent white light, although also emitting red, blue and yellow flashes. They alerted their neighbors in the awareness that no one would believe them, and they all saw something resembling 'a sort of comet' launched toward the town of Esteiro.

The story from Vistavós was confirmed from Esteiro. Several people in the outdoor seats of the Don Pato café allegedly witnessed a bright flash they first attributed to a fire. As minutes went by, they saw a triangular object suspended before their eyes for 10 to 15 seconds. Some of them event went out the next day looking for traces in Pino de Val, Paxareiras and Abelleira without finding a trace.

A doctor from Esteiro and his two companions also saw a flash of light in the sky over Pando, near Vistavós. The object, measuring 15 meters in diameter, moved away swiftly.

Some residents of Muros ascribed the phenomenon to the "Santa Compaña" or Russian spies.

Mexico: Alleged UFOs Over Monterrey

A social media user uploaded photos of alleged UFOs roaming around the streets of Monterrey.

The owner of a music studio in Monterrey's Colonia Terminal shared a series of UFO photos on his Facebook page.

According to the originator, the images were taken outside his studio in December 2019, but had not been made public until today.

The user, identified as "Nitry", said the object moved in a zigzag pattern without separating from each other 'displaying a formidable coordination'.

Another user remarked that he had witnessed a similar event, but from Churubusco Avenue.

Other users made light of the occasion, suggesting the UFOs were time travelers or murder hornets from Asia, whose arrival in the U.S. had only recently been made known.

So far, the only fact is that no one can state, with any certainty, the true nature of the strange objects flying over the state of Nuevo León's capital city.

Nicaragua: Journalist Reports Seeing Black Triangular UFO.

A report by Franklin Arroyo

Nicaragua: Journalist Reports Seeing Black Triangular UFO.

Fabrice Le Lous, a journalist for the La Nación newspaper, had a fascinating UFO sighting in 2012. He saw the device at a relative's home in Jugigalpa, Chontales, in neighboring Nicaragua.

The sighting occurred on the evening of Friday, 22 June and Saturday, 23 June of that year. According to Lous, he and a cousin witnessed a black triangular object for at least 20 seconds. It had lights on each of its three tips.

Fabrice's sighting was published in La Nacion this Sunday (3 May 2020) in the Sunday supplement, describing the experience in detail. La Teja got in touch with him over WhatsApp to discuss the experience in greater detail.

Fabrice says that he lived in Managua and in those years, he and his cousin Gerardo would go to Juigalpa, where his relatives lived, to spend the weekend.

"For a few months we had grown accustomed to looking at the sky through a refractor telescope. My cousin was a medical student was was more enthusiastic about scanning the night sky, but I always accompanied him. He would track down the stars we'd be looking at and I was amazed to see them."

"We spent a few minutes in the wide back yard waiting for the skies to clear to use the telescope again, but around 12:40 a.m. we decided to return home.

"My cousin went to put the telescope away. He took a bit longer than usual, and suddenly I heard him calling me, looking at something in the distance. I didn't go immediately, thinking it might be a prank, but then he began shouting, anxiously. I went over and looked in the direction he was pointing to.

"Can you see that?" he asked, excitedly.

At a distance, but relatively low (lower than the clouds) there was a black triangle flying silently over the skies of Juigalpa.

"It was a black triangle with orange lights, dim ones, at its tips. Three lights. The object flew hither and yon at high speed and made sudden stops before changing course in a different direction, very quickly. We could only hear a gentle rustling of trees. The triangle crossed the skies noiselessly. The sighting, which seemed magical to me at the time, lasted 20 to 30 seconds, but it seemed like hours to me.

"After a few seconds of apparently distant, calm flight, the triangle stationed itself more or less directly above us, becoming larger in a matter of seconds. Did it approach us? I don't know, but that was the impression I had. The moment it increased in size, we took off running to the house with quickened pulse rates," says Fabrice, who was 22 at the time.

The experience distressed both youths for some time and prompted them to seek information online, making them realize that the were not the only ones to witness such objects.

When asked if he believed in extraterrestrials, Fabrice, now 29, remarked that there's no way of proving it, but he thinks humans share the universe with other beings. To him, there must be intelligent life on other worlds.

"I would like to have the experience all over again, and as I said, the sighting experience was shocking and filled me with a bit of fear, reading and seeing documents on the Internet. It's not a good memory, but if I could relive something so odd again, I'd like to be able to out of sheer curiosity. I now know more about these phenomena than in 2012.

"It frightened me because the Internet has all manner of reports, FBI and CIA documents in their websites that corroborate these sightings worldwide for years. All of that, joined to the black triangle sighting, was an information overload that caused me insomnia and distressed for at least three years.

Fabrice remarked that they returned to the back yard every week for at least three years, but nothing similar ever happened again.

Astonished local residents recorded the strange objects that flew over Tierra del Fuego for several minutes.

The UFO was recorded by a resident of Ushuaia with a cellphone on Monday around 20:00 hours. Videos uploaded to ovnis.arg on Instagram state that the lights were moving below cloud level.

In recent days there have been numerous sightings around the world, and the world's southernmost city was no exception. Some theories suggest that sightings have redoubled during lockdown.

Mexico: Cancun Regions 101 and 102 Terrorized by UFO

Following the dissemination of photos showing flashes of light in various parts of Cancún on social media, local residents have claimed again that these lights were seen in the sky once again, but this time in Regions 101 and 102. They claim they are UFOs.

According to Mrs. Maria, a resident of Region 101, on May 6, at 22:00 hours here 17-year-old daughter saw an object moving quickly and in several directions, but never leaving the region. They paid it little attention.

Minutes went by and the light remained. Locals began to wonder, since after sightings of these strange lights in Cancun, taken by many to be UFOs, mother and daughter subscribed to this belief, as the object remained visible for 3 hours.

The alleged UFO was also seen at the same time but at Region 102. A young man named Ricardo saw this white light moving from one place to another, to the extent that he thought it was the Quintana Roo police patrolling the area with sophisticated drones to fight crime or insure everyone was at home. Seeing that the sighting lasted over two hours, he confirmed it could have been a UFO.

"It was odd, because I thought it was a drone. I went into my house and two hours later, remembering what I'd seen earlier, I went out to check and found, to my surprise, that it was still there, moving quickly from one side to the other, as if trembling. I think UFOs will attack us this time," remarked the fellow.

Up to now, these lights, flashes, or flying objects - whose provenance is unknown, and for which there is no explanation - have been seen in several parts of Cancún and the state of Quintana Roo. Many believe who believe in alien life claim these are UFOs monitoring us in advance of an attack on the planet. Could this be true?

Argentina: 10 Sightings of Alleged Alien Craft per Month

Argentina: 10 Sightings of Alleged Alien Craft per Month

The Aerospace Identification Center (CIAE) was created on 4 April 2019 to replace CEFAE, the Commission for the Study of Aerospace Phenomena, with the aim of "organizing, coordinating and executing the investigation and analysis of events, activities or elements present in the airspace or originating from it, identifying their characteristics and reporting conclusions to pertinent agencies that may require them.

Commodore Ruben Lianza is the analyst in charge of CIAE. His background includes being an Air Force pilot, being in charge of the Marambio Base, a fan of astronomy and a student of space apparitions for over 40 years.

"This year we have received 40 cases in barely 4 months, yielding an average of 10 per month. The increase in sightings is due to misidentifications of the recent Starlink launches, the Space X satellite arrays belonging to Elon Musk.

Similarly, CIAE's website receives consultations from private parties who have documented suspicious objects flying over the nation's airspace.

Photo taken in Jáchal (San Juan) in which the object went by so quickly that it resembled a "saucer". When applying an image analysis tool, the blurry object is seen to be a bird crossing the field of vision from right to left (CIAE)

"Due to quarantine restrictions necessitated by coronavirus, people are at home with more time to look to the heavens from their terraces or balconies. We have received at least 4 cases...two of them corresponding to the planet Venus and the remaining ones involving first-magnitude stars, like Sirius and Antares."

Far from bolstering paranormal sensationalism, CIAE's goal is to achieve neutrality. Rather than issuing opinions, the conclusions of these reports point strictly to where the evidence leads.

"CIAE's mission is to determine the provenance of all objects received. If we do not achieve this, until new evidence is obtained, they remain unidentified. This implies a clear factor of pride, because there are thousands of researchers around the world and any mystery that we cannot solve will surely be unraveled by another," Lianza says.

Ever since Lianza took control of CIAE, he availed himself of tools pertinent to aerospace, such as astronomical and satellite tracking programs to identify natural or technological causes. 99% of the photos have a rational explanation.

"When one speaks of UFOs, one means something that was 'not identified' by the witness, and investigation must find the cause that gave rise to it. If an expert believes that making the case unexplained makes it more 'interesting', he or she is committing a serious conceptual error," Lianza notes.

"Many saucer believers, rather than accepting the most basic realities, choose to believe in the strangest hypotheses. Following detailed scrutiny, it will turn out that apparently extraordinary objects will be far more ordinary."

Local ufologists also follow their own techniques and procedures. "Unlike CIAE, which analyzes photographs, we conduct field research. We interview witnesses to see what information they can contribute. If the information is worthless, we dismiss it. Furthermore, we check satellite programs to see if any anomaly was detected and we consult local flight radar systems," cautions Andrea Pérez Simondini, director of CEFORA (the Commission for UFO Study of the Argentinean Republic).

Given the lack of specific evidence, the UFO phenomenon gives rise to doubt and suspicion. However, over 22 countries have declassified their files basing themselves on the Public Information Access Law and have even formed official Air Force commissions to study them.

An Interview with Capt. Daniel Perissé Regarding UFOs in the Antarctic

Date: 05.01.2020

An Interview with Capt. Daniel Perissé Regarding UFOs in the Antarctic

July 3, 1965 marks the sighting of an unidentified flying object - also seen from Chilean and British facilities. Captain Daniel Perissé discusses the event in detail.

1st Interviewer: We are in the city of Buenos Aires at the home of Captain Daniel Perissé, one of the main eyewitnesses to UFO events in the Antarctic.
2nd Interviewer: A case occurred in Argentina in 1965 that had worldwide significance. Captain Perissé, what was your involvement in the events of July 3, 1965?

Perissé: Well, throughout that year, I was the commander of the Decepción Naval Facility on the island of Decepción, in the Antarctic. I held the rank of frigate lieutenant, and had a crew of 14 men under my command. On the evening of July 3rd, we had a sighting event that started with an observation made by [a crewman] in charge of keeping meteorological records. Then, uh, he went out to the weather station, saw the unusual phenomenon, came back inside and said to me: "There's something unusual going on. You should come and see." I went out - several of us went out - and practically the entire crew, except for one who was manning the radio - plus three members of a Chilean base on the same island, and who were [at our base] for medical reasons - witnessed the maneuvers of this unknown phenomenon.
2nd Interviewer: And what were the characteristics of this unusual phenomenon you witnessed?
Perissé: Specifically, we saw a light. The fact is that the sighting took place at 19:40 hours. Given that nightfall begins at around three in the afternoon in those parts - by which I mean, it's pitch black by three. Four and half hours later, if you will, it's even darker. It was a nocturnal light, and the sun was well behind the horizon. And due to the tension and the location on the horizon, and other elements that can be added to this conversation, allowed us to classify this event in the realm of unknown phenomena. We couldn't associate the light with a satellite which passed by at a very specific time elsewhere on the horizon; we couldn't say it was an airplane on account of its maneuvers; we couldn't say it was an astronomical phenomenon, say a very bright star, a meteorite...
2nd Interviewer: You had knowledge of the sky on account of the duties you were carrying out there, sufficient to avoid such confusion...
Perissé: Yes, in fact, we had two meteorologists who observed the phenomenon, and who had the task of making observation every three hours.
2nd Interviewer: Perissé, this case you're telling us about, was the only one, or did others occur previously?
Perissé: Well, there are precedents to this. There were several cases during the months of June, July and August, if we associate these cases on Decepción Island with the Laurie Island incident in the South Orkneys. Regarding the Decepción cases, the first of them took place on the seventh of June. It was a sighting made by one of the two weather officers at the base, and it took place at eight at night, being one of the three-hourly observations, that is to say, the observations that these people had to make every three hours. The second case, briefly summarized, involved the same person who had made the observations hours earlier, at two in the morning. What he saw had characteristics similar to the previous one...
1st Interviewer: Was a single object always visible, or were there two?
Perissé: It was always a sighting of an isolated object. There was an exception to this, which is a case, precisely the one in late August of that year, which took place at Laurie Island in the Orkneys, and four objects were reported. This is a case which can be summarized.
1st Interviewer: Very good. The bases at this location, belonging to other countries, also have records about this situation?
Perissé: Well, there's a Chilean base, which is the [name], which like the Argentinean one, and the British one I'll be making reference to, had been deactivated because the volcano erupted. This island is, in fact, a volcanic cone whose caldera has been flooded by the sea. Sightings were made at the Chilean base and the British one as well.
2nd Interviewer: Did this sighting prompt the Argentinean government or the navy to issue an official statement is this regard?
Perissé: Yes. Two statements were issued, essentially consisting in a rebroadcasting of the information I was providing from the Antarctic, confirming these facts, in a way, and the eyewitness information provided by other members of the base. But this had to do exclusively with the July 3rd sighting, not in regard to the earlier cases which became known to the public.
1st Interviewer: Were photographs ever secured?
Perissé: On one hand, the wind was blowing at around 80 kilometers per hour; we set up a camera on a tripod, but it wouldn't keep still...
2nd Interviewer: So it was impossible to take...
Perissé: ...we tried taking a photo from within. There was glass, and double glazing, that hindered the taking of photos. Moreover there was a lot of surface wind, kicking dusty snow that made taking the picture even more of a challenge. Lastly, we were using 21 DIN film, that is to say 100 ASA, which is hardly the sensitivity for taking nocturnal photos.
[A pointer picks out a spot on a map of the Antarctic]
Perissé: The Argentinean base is here. This is Primero de Mayo Bay. And this you can see here [pointer indicates another geological feature] is called Bahia Inutil, a name probably owing to the fact that it's an enclosed bay which is practically unusable for navigation. Chile's Pedro Serra base was located in Caleta Pendulo, which is in the place I'm pointing at [moves pointer] and the British base was located at Caleta Balleneros, this location. We made the July 3rd sighting from our outpost in this general direction [moves pointer], covering this arc on the horizon. The sighting had an approximate duration of one hour, and the light or UFOs final maneuver was to rise until it became lost in the sky. [Perissé moves the pointer to another location on the map]. The sighting made by the Chileans in mid-June, June 18, was made practically over their outpost. The object maneuvered over the witnesses' heads. The practically simultaneous operation with the Argentinean facility on July 3rd was made from a northern sector looking southwest, also with various kinds of movement and changes of color. The object was truly unique. The sighting made by the British the day before, July 2nd, was made as the UFO maneuvered practically overhead, with various movements.

1st Interviewer: Were magnetic anomalies reported during the sighting?
Perissé: Well, in regard to that, we lacked the proper equipment, the so-called magneto-variometers. This equipment was on Laurie Island on the [South] Orkney archipelago. The information given to me by Lieutenant Sosa, was that two meteorologists had made a sighting at 17:02 hours, precisely on the same day in July. They saw a light flying across the horizon for 15 seconds, a very brief sighting .But, uh, the technicians - highly experienced people - did not believe it could have been a meteorite. The fact is that they took readings of Earth's magnetic field with their devices. When the readings were completed after several days, they removed the tapes, examined them, and for that day, the 3rd of July, the graph showed that at 17:02 there had been a significant jump in an otherwise normal display. Such was its magnitude that it even went beyond the limits of the tape. The readings later returned to normal. This allows us to associate the presence of the UFO seen by the onlookers with that reading, establishing an apparent cause-and-effect relationship. That is to say, the UFO flew past and disturbed the local magnetic field, recorded at that time on their equipment.
2nd Interviewer: On the local level, has there been an agency devoted to the study of UFOs in Argentina?
Perissé: The Argentinean Navy, to which I belong, created a permanent UFO research commission under the command of Omar Pagani, who held the rank of frigate captain at the time. It operated from the year 1962 or 1963 until practically 1974, at which time Pagani retired from the Navy. I understand that the Air Force carried out - and still carries out - research in this field.
1st Interviewer: Is there currently any ongoing research by an official body?
Perissé: I suppose the only one belongs to the Air Force, and I am not aware of any other agency involved in this sort of research.
2nd Interviewer: Our question is why is there such secrecy around the results of the investigations being conducted?
Perissé: Well...I am a Navy officer, and I am currently devoted to this line of research. I can tell you that there is no concealment of information, at least in matters concerning the Navy. Uh, in other words, there's no aim to hide or cover up any secrets. What happens is that some cases have occurred, and they were followed by a research period under Captain Pagani's purview, and then matters were left as they were, half dead. No further research was carried out.
2nd Interviewer: Before we end, we would like to thank Captain Perissé for his time [unintelligible formalities]

At least three objects were seen yesterday afternoon heading toward El Carril or Chicoana

Juan, a resident of the Eco Sol district, was driving in his car along provincial route 36 - linking Rosario de Lerma to the locality of Campo Quijano - when he suddenly became aware of a strange object that left "haloes or cones among the clouds as it moved from north to south."

In his account, the man said: "I was already in town after 5 pm and not far from the train station. The object's trajectory struck me - I'd never seen anything similar. They weren't airplanes, because those are know to me, or anything similar. So I looked for a place to pull over and try to take some photos."

In his urge to document the case, he focused on the alleged UFO and took one photo after another with his cellular phone. "It was like descending toward Chicoana or El Carril. From my perspective, one could see it was large and traveling at considerable speed. But when I looked to the left of the object, I saw two more with similar characteristics. The whole situation surprised me; they made no noise whatsoever."

He added that he sent the images to a student of experiences of this sort, a native of Chicoana, who will analyze the impages in detail in an effort to ascertain the origin of these craft.

The eyewitness is a resident of Rosario de Lerma and a worker in the mining sector, currently complying with mandatory quarantine and who happened to transit through that community in Valle de Lerma for justified reasons.

Argentina: "I've Seen a UFO" - The 1965 Zuk Case

Although it may be hard to believe, UFOs arrived in the province of Misiones a long time ago. This is the Zuk case, one of the first on record in 1965.

UFOs form part of a mythology that covers all corners of the world. One in ten people claim having seen a flying saucer at some point of their lives. The province of Misiones is plagued by extraterrestrial craft sightings with all manner of occupants: green, blue, red, three-eyed, tentacled, etc. However, few cases have been documented. Luckily for ufology in Misiones, "the Zuk case" is one them.

The 1950s and 1960s were the boom of flying saucer sightings, but that was something Casimiro Zuk, a 22 year old bachelor living in lot 171 of the Apóstoles development in Misiones, could have known. "I've seen a flying saucer," he said.

Believe or Bust

It was a night like any other, with neither rain nor fog. The date was 23 August 1965 around 1:00 a.m.. Zuk was pedaling his bicycle along the road joining the Centinela wilderness with the city of Apóstoles. Upon reaching the General Urquiza railroad crossing, he suddenly noticed a luminous object overhead, floating at an altitude of 3500 meters. The scintillating body turned on and off for a number of seconds. Zuk stopped and got off his bike. He suddenly became aware that the object was approaching, descending some 400 meters away from where he stood.

He could not believe his eyes. The object was a sort of elongated aerial vehicle, with an approximate diameter of five meters in its midsection. The total height of the craft 2.5 meters.

Neither Green nor Red

"Suddenly, a hatch began opening slowly, and a normal-sized person emerged. It was dressed in an outfit similar to that of an aviator (coveralls) that covered its body from head to toe. The suit gave off flashes of light. The figure took a few steps, as if wanting to stretch its legs, and then returned to the craft rigidly. After the hatch closed, the object took flight, rising in a spiral, and a sort of roaring sound could be heard," according to Zuk.

The Casimiro Zuk case is one of many sightings that have occurred in the province of Misiones. According to those having knowledge of the subject, the rural areas of Misiones have invited aliens to land. Once a year, someone sees mysterious lights crossing the skies. Are they ancient Guaraní civilizations? Ambassadors from the future? No one knows. The fact is that 55 years later, "the Zuk case" is far from having an explanation.
