Argentina: The Great Alberti Mothership.

At 18:30 hours on 7 February 1963, Felix Carrizo was driving in his car, accompanied by his wife, along National Route 5, running from Buenos Aires to the province of La Pampa. In the vicinity of Alberti, he slowed down and pulled to a complete stop. His wife was pointing nervously at "something" enormous and bright that hovered to the right of the road.

There was, in fact, a cylindrical grey object hovering over a stand of trees, motionless and slightly tilted. It appeared to 'float'. Both witnesses could not believe what they were seeing. "It could have been larger than 200 meters, and perhaps 20 meters in diameter," they said. "There was a blinding light issuing from its central area, strong enough to hurt the eyes. Four rectangular lights resembling portholes blinked on its fuselage, one of them above the immensely powerful light and the remaining three below."

Felix Carrizo remembered that he had a photo camera in the back seat of the car, and took a shot without a moment's hesitation. Upon lowering the camera, the object began to move. A cloud-darkened sky filled the backdrop. "Before I was able to take a second shot, the luminous cylinder rose at high speed and with successive pulses. It then assumed a horizontal position and vanished into space." The experience lasted little over a minute. Carrizo was using a Schneider Alpha-Xenar 1: 3,5/75 zoom lens, a shutter speed of 1/250 and an f16 stop. He used Kodak Plus X Pan (Type B, 35 mm).

These, then ware the specifics of the event. During a 2020 visit, we were unable to locate the exact location of the incident and later resorted to Luis Bianchi (FAO Central) to create an artistic rendition and Patricio Barrancos (FAO Baires) to color enhance it.

Argentina: Two Fishermen Witness Strange Lights Near Fortín Lagunita








Researcher Luis Burgos draws our attention to the following news item:

HUERGO - Two Fishermen Witness Strange Lights Near Fortín Lagunita, Claim They Were UFOs.

[X-Files theme begins]

Reporter: "The event occured between 8:30 pm and 9:00 a.m., just as the internet went down in the entire locality. They wanted to photograph what they were seeing, what their eyes were showing them, but their cellphones went dead. Their car battery was dead, and it was necessary to push the car in order to start it up. Another incident took place not far from this area, thirty meters from Fortín Lagunita in the La Balsa Lagoon. As we all know, events of a similar magnitude occured here years ago in the vicinty of the Balneario Viejo (the old beach), where two people in a car claimed having eluded becoming victims of a UFO abduction."

"One of the fishermen is will to share his experience with all of us...what happened to him yesterday in the river area."

Fisherman: "Last night between eight thirty and nine o'clock I was fishing here with a friend, spending time, and well, something happened. Something we never expected to experience. Something I always laughed at, since I didn't believe in paranormal events. Well, it was our turn this time. Over there, we saw lights go on, looked in that direction and heard a sound, a very loud sound, but when we saw the situation, we tried to take photos of it with our cellphones, which were off. Ah, well...but they [the lights] hid between the willows, and we got scared. We got in the car, and it was dead, as were our cellphones. They'd shut everything down on us. Ah, well, that's all - it was all very strange,and when we wanted to get out, we couldn't with a dead battery. We had no choice but to give the car a push. The lights hovered ten meters over the water and then hid themselves over here (camera pans to willows) on that island...that's all."

 High Strangeness: Argentina's Domselaar Case (1972)

By Esteban Dylan

 An Astonishing Case Forgotten by Time

The Domselaar Case, Parish of San Vicente, Province of Buenos Aires (32 km south of the city of Buenos Aires), 1972 - Witnesses: ROBERTO MANCO, CARLOS MANCO , MIGUEL ANGEL MANCO, CARLOS PONZIO

 It was winter in the wilderness of Domselaar when our friend Luis told us about the disquieting fact one evening. "My granddad saw aliens around these parts."

 His statement was met by the prescribed laughter and disbelieving adolescent stares. "So what were they like?" asked Ariel.

 "According to my granddad, it was a reddish being that walked by floating a meter off the ground, and who seemed to be herding cows." Uncomfortable laughter erupted, followed by the deadly silence of midnight, which was logical, since were all alone in that cold and cheerless place, and were starting to feel that 'something' was watching us from every corner. Our fishing trip had been turned into a night of endless drinking of 'mate' and insomnia. The fact was that Roberto Manco, Luis's grandfather, whom we all called "Don Tito", hand been the witness to one of Argentina's most startling cases, studied by Fabio Zerpa, and whose details appeared in the pages of the 1990 annual edition of the legendary "Cuarta Dimensión" magazine.

 The First Event.

On 11 September 2020 I managed to contact witness CARLOS MANCO, known in his neighborhood as "Kalata" and who currently lives in the locality of Claypole, parish of Almirante Brown in the Buenos Aires suburbs. He very kindly offered to retell his experience.

"It was the summer of 1972 and we walked, as we usually did, because we liked those open fields with small trees near the bridge located West of Rt. 210. We saw circles of various sizes with charred grass. The following day we went back and saw the rings were greenish and filled with large mushrooms. This why Fabio Zerpa took an interest in the case (Fabio Zerpa makes the following note: 'the subject of mushrooms was present throughout the 1970s, particularly in the Province of Santa Fe (the Caracaña and Correa cases, the fields of the Damiani family). The Calvatium Lilacina specimens grew to enormous size in perfect circles following a UFO landing, forming the so-called "fairy rings" or "witch rings"

The Second Event.

Mr. Roberto Manco ("Don Tito"), who died a few years ago in Jeppener, where he lived, once told me when I visited his home that around 1973 he witnessed a red-colored "ENTITY" that ran and floated about a meter off the ground. It wore a sort of floating cape, with several cows running behind it. He was stunned and did not want to get too close out of fear. He later added that the being and the cows ran toward a mill adjacent to a nearby wilderness, following the path usually taken by the cows. The cows and the being 'vanished' after making a bend on the trail. The next day, the estate's foreman said that 14 cows had vanished, never to be found again. There were no traces or signs of any truck having entered the area. The nearest road is 3 kilometers distant, which eliminated the theory of cattle rustlers operating in the area. Added to this was the disappearance of the mill and its water tank, leaving a 'crater' behind. Stranger still, 'everything was back in its place' as if nothing had ever happened.

Mexico: Alleged UFO Over Villa de Cloete

Mexico: Alleged UFO Over Villa de Cloete

Sabinas, Hidalgo (10.09.20) - A UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) startled residents of Villa del Cloete this Thursday. They did their best to capture the moment it plummeted from the sky on their cellphones.

A reddish light descended from the sky around 19:40 hours, leaving a wake of smoke, according to residents of Villa de Agujita, who were also treated to the sight.

Videos and photographs circulated on Facebook, with citizens saying it was gunpowder. After a survey of the area, local authorities found nothing.

José Pichardo González, Civil Protection Coordinator, noted that the report was received and the area was surveyed, but nothing was found.

The situation even brought up discussions and controversies on social media, with some citizens noting that it could have been a flare or even space junk.

Others stated that in the year 2020 nothing that goes on in the world holds any wonder for them. The COVID-19 pandemic, meteor skyfalls in other parts of the country, and natural events that have never been seen before.
