Argentina: Object Plunges into Ocean

Breaking News - Silvana Castelli, owner of the "El Descanso" camping ground in Punta Piedras, where FAO has been conducting periodic skywatches since 1991, that a couple of youths belonging to a group of eight tourists at the campground, reported seeing - to their astonishment - the rapid descent of a very bright object that plunged into the sea, but not very far from the shore, in the area where the campground ends. This event took place on Saturday, March 26, 2022 at 0200 hours. No corroborating accounts have surfaced for the time being.
FAO has used this area as a lookout for nocturnal skywatches, and several members have had notable experiences here over numerous decades. The most memorable of these was the one which occurred in late 1996, involving the 'probe' that emerged from the shore.
What is truly startling is the shallow depth of the water, adding to this its rocky nature (see photo), which make navigation impossible, yet the phenomenon appears to deploy here with no hindrances. This rocky environment gives Punta Piedras ("Stony Point") its name, and makes it one of the country's most active UFO/USO areas despite its reduced size. A FAO-ICOU conmemorative plaque was placed there precisely for this reason. Research is ongoing.
