 Cryptozoology: Nahuelito - The Bariloche Sea Monster - Reappears

 While walking along the shores of lake Nahuel Huapi, a woman captured the moment in which a strange figure emerged from the water. The video went viral on social media and spread terror among residents of the Rio Negro community.

 After many years, terror returned to Bariloche following the alleged reappearance of Nahuelito, the lake Nahuel Huapi sea monster. A resident of this Rio Negro community captured the moment at which a strange figure emerged from the water. After the images went viral on social media, hundreds of people agreed that it was indeed the creature.

 As shown in the video, a figure emerges from the water, presumably Nahuelito, a kind of serpent that hides underwater. While experts note that it could also be a plesiosaur, locals say that they've seen a little 'hump' peeking through the surface in several instances.

 Moreover, Silvina - in charge of sharing the video on social media - says that she saw it while strolling through the nature reserve, and succeeded in recording it, despite the difficulty of using a cellphone to do so. "I saw it move and then it vanished, leaving behind a ring like the ones fish leave when they jump and then submerge," she told El Cordillerano newspaper.

 Furthermore, the woman says that she lives with her family some 23 kilometers distant from where Nahuelito appeared and that "it isn't the first time she's seen strange things in the area."

 Based on the images, other local residents also claimed seeing Nahuelito, although they weren't able to record it "because they didn't have their phones on them" or simply because the beast 'departed too quickly."

 As told by Bariloche residents, the legend of "Nahuelito" arises from the indigenous peoples, who believed the creature lived in lake Nahuel Huapi. However, the theory gained relevance in 1910 when George Garret, a man sailing the waters, said that the "animal" measured between 5 and 7 meters long and stood some 2 meters over the water. Added to this was the account of Martin Sheffield, a U.S. gold hunter who claimed seeing large footprints on the shores of the lake. This resulted in a 1922 hunt for the creature, led by renowned hunters from all over the country. Despite their efforts, which had international repercussions, they did not find it.

Bolivia: UFO Allegedly Tries to Communicate in "Morse Code"

 Bolivia: UFO Allegedly Tries to Communicate in "Morse Code"

 "It transmitted its message and vanished."

 The new sighting of a possibly alien vehicle occurred in Bolivia and quickly went viral on social media.

 It is thanks to social media and the fact that currently everyone carries a camera-equipped, Internet-ready cellphone in their pocket nowadays, more UFO sightings than ever have been reported. We can witness new incidents of contact with these mysterious objects on a nearly daily basis.

 The latest sighting occurred in the Bolivian capital, La Paz. Residents claimed having seen a very powerful, blinking light that tried to imitate Morse code. One person remarked: "It was a light that blinked constantly, but was too bright and intense."

 Another local resident added: "It was blinking. It looked like it was trying to communicate via Morse code." Residents were able to record images of the putative alien object as it blinked for five minutes, as if conveying a message, and then vanished.

 Ufologist Angela Aguilar explained: "This Morse code was used in the past, and even binary codes were employed. This is how signals were sent from Earth searching for life on other worlds." Given this fact, it isn't unreasonable to suppose that if we are in fact dealing with a UFO, it would be trying to make contact.

 In order to assuage the concerns of the locals - and public opinion in general - it was noted that "there is nothing to fear", since if aliens exist, and their intentions were hostile, we would have suffered the consequences long ago.

 Local media contacted some of the residents who saw the UFO. One of them stressed: "I thought it was an aircraft, but after watching it closely, it wasn't. It wasn't a drone, either."

 Someone else added: "It's as though it had spoken to me. It told me 'look outside'. I felt summoned by something."

 Given that the luminous code could be a message, a group of ufologists is making an effort to decrypt it.

Argentina: UFO Seen Once More in the Skies over Resistencia (2000)









Source: Diario NORTE (newspaper), Resistencia, Chaco --Argentina
Date: November 6, 200


Two spheres with a metallic appearance, shining in the sunlight, were
seen this past October 5th in the sky to the east of Resistencia in bold
daylight by four members of the same family. Moments later, another one
appeared and disappeared, descending and ascending with swift, guided
movements and managed to be caught on film for one whole minute. This is
the news that ufologist Osvaldo Sanchez, renown analyst of the Red
Argentina de Ufologia, gave NORTE after having analyzed it in all
respects, including examination of the film taken by Diego Romero, 21, a
student of the School of Economics of the UNNE.

* The UFO Event *

Sanchez tells the story thus: Mr. Atilio Romero, head of a respectable
household from Resistencia, was on the lower floor of his home on October
5, 2000, considering the possibility of cleaning out a swimming pool along
with his two sons and wife. The time was more or less 12:20 pm when he
looked eastward and saw something glinting in the sun. He told his family
about it and they were all able to notice how small spheres, some 20
degrees above the horizon, darted rapidly about, appearing and
disappearing, flying up and down and vice versa. A third sphere then
entered the scene.

The Romeros were fascinated by the vision, but remembered that they had a
camcorder in the bedroom. Diego ran for it and quickly tried to focus on
the objects although he had trouble in doing so: ultimately, he managed
to focus on one of them through the zoom lens and was able to clearly
make out that the UFO, while spherical, had a dome shaped structure on
its upper part which spun like a top. Before it landed, the witnesses
were able to see its balancing movement due to centrifugal forces.

** For Further Consideration**

Osvaldo Sanchez's analysis adds that Mr. Romero was able to distinguish,
prior to the camera being brought into play, a spindle-shaped dark form
that appeared to accompany the UFOs. This was not captured on the film,
but it is worth bearing in mind that the sighting itself lasted some four
minutes, that there were no noises whatsoever, except in the background
(the witnesses' remarks, the squawking of a parrot and the barking of a
neighbor's dog).

According to the witnesses, the objects were quite a distance from where
the sighting took place. The day was spectacular with high visibility.
When the video is seen in slow-motion and frame by frame, the last
seconds of the Romero video convey the effect of seeing a physical,
metallic vehicle moving through the atmosphere and engaging in planned
maneuvers prior to landing. The top-like spinning motion is a known
pattern of behavior within the UFO phenomenon.

Finally, Osvaldo Sanchez remarks that Mr. Romero gave him the video for
his analysis and only asked to be informed of the results. The clear
question here is: what were those spheres and what were they doing?

A Massive UFO Recorded Over Cachi (2001)









 SOURCE: Diario "El Tribuno" (Salta, Argentina)
DATE: June 25, 2001

"It was the size of a football stadium," claims witness.

Massive UFO Filmed in Cachi

"This is the most incredible document that has ever been seen and I
achieved it with my own camera," said journalist Antonio Zuleta, who
filmed a giant UFO.

Journalist, mountaineer and marathon runner Antonio Zuleta nervously
contacted the newsroom of El Tribuno, and with good reason. "Listen to
me, brother," he said. "I've achieved the most amazing document. Last
night (Saturday 23rd) I shot some fantastic footage. I captured a giant
Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) on film. It was moving slowly over a
ridge located some 800 meters from town. It was immense--perhaps the size
of a football stadium. And the recording I have in my hands is so good
that I think it will become a document of unquestionable value to
researchers," he emphasized.

Antonio Zuleta, 59, is a well known character: he works for the FM San
Jose radio station and his adventurous spirit has made him famous. He
holds the world record of eight ascents of the mythic Nevado de Cachi,
one of the mountains which forms, together with Aconcagua, one of the
eternal challenges of Andean mountaineers has starred in a number of
sports achievements. Among them, linking his hometown with the capital of
Salta on bicycle and by jogging. Known as "El flaco Zuleta" (Skinny
Zuleta), this tall, rangy, angular faced, mustachioed athlete has one
further obsession: UFOs. "Its just that their presence here isn't a
recent thing," he explained." There are hundreds of accounts regarding
strange apparitions and even landings by these craft. I'm almost 60 and
have heard stories since I was a kid. This is the reason why the subject
interests me so, and I never go anywhere without my camcorder. I have a
late model Sony which has become my new travelling companion," Zuleta

The Sighting

During his phone conversation with El Tribuno, Zuleta furnished the
details of his "close encoutner of the second time" as ufologists define
these documented sightings.

"It was nearly 21:00 hours on Saturday. Cachi was still ablaze with the
St.John's Night bonfires. I was home with my wife Silvia and my four year
old daughter, who was burning with a fever. "We've got to go to the
hospital," said my wife after pointing out to me that the girl wasn't
doing so well. We covered her with a poncho, put her in the backseat of
the car and took off. As always, I brought my camera along.On the way out
of town, we noticed a flash over a hill at a distance of 800 meters and
ehaded westwards. The object was enormous and moved slowly at asome
15,000 meters , which leads me to believe it must have been the size of a
football stadium.  It gave off lights like streamers of red and green. It
was incredible. I filmed it for over 20 minutes and even had to climb
onto a mound to do it, since as it moved, it vanished from my angle of
vision. It suddenly accelerated to a fantastic speed and was lost in
space," said the witness.

Cuba: A Pre-Historic Giant?







Cuba: A Prehistoric Giant?
By Orestes Girbau

"[The illustration] is a copy of the near-statuesque phenomenon that once existed in the Manuel Lomba cattle pasture in Guane, Province of Pinar del Rio, Cuba. The height differences between the stone formation and the human figures surrounding it can be easily compared. Were there giants in Cuba once upon a time? Manifestations of extraneous Pre-Columbian art? There are more questions than answers and mystery seems to prevail.

Argentina: Farmer Claims Having Seen UFO and Occupants (2003)

Argentina: Farmer Claims Having Seen UFO and Occupants
***In Cachi, on the Tin Tin road***
***He traveled with 7 other people on a bus.
***All of them witnessed the strange and fantastic event

"It was incredible. We could see an object with impressive lights,  side by side, spinning in a circle at high speed. Then other lights appeared which came and went over the same spot. It made our jaws drop," were the first words uttered by Julio Espinoza, a farmer and shepherd from La Poma.

It all happened on the Tin Tin road on December 16, 2003 at  midnight, some 120 km west of Salta, the gateway to Cachi which crosses the Los Cardones National Park.

This location was not only the site of a new UFO sighing. This time,  according to the eyewtiness, the phenomenon was accompanied by the strange manifestation of humanoid creatures walking stealthily amid the scant vegetation of the Puna.
They Were on the Road to Puna
Eight people traveling in a bus were among the witnesses to the phenomenon, among them a 5 year-old girl. But the main witness to the events, Julio Rafael Espinosa, 39, told his experience to El Tribuno only last Friday.
That Tuesday, the passengers on the bus were Benito Salva and his father, Ricardo, four other men, Espinosa and his young daughter Tamara, age 5. At the entrance to the Tin Tin road, some 400 meters to the right in the direction of Cerro Negro, Benito Salva, the vehicle's driver, said: "Hey guys, look over there" before parking the bus, while the travelers looked through the window toward the indicated spot. Espinosa says that he managed to climb on top of the bus, but curiosity got the better of him and led him jump off and walk toward the luminous phenomenon.

A Stunning Tale

 "Upon reaching a bramble, in spite of the darkness, the landscape was very well-defined. I couldn't go on any further; i was moving away from the road and I was getting scared when my eyes started to see something that couldn't be made out clearly at a distance."
"There was a device measuring some 100 meters wide resting over some kind of struts or legs which kept it some 10-12 meters off the ground. Some sort of hoses emerged from its middle, with lights on their tips. Suddenly, the lights on the object went out and these strange beings appeared. They walked slowly in single file, they were thin and their glow was so powerful they blinded me. At that moment I hid behind a bramble and I could see when one of them jumped onto a bramble--don't know how he did it--and began to pull pieces off it, as though taking specimens."
Some twenty minutes had gone by. It was then that Espinosa decided to return to the truck to report what was going on. "When I told them what I'd seen, they told me that they couldn't see the creatures because they were very far away. However, they saw the luminous phenomenon, which was visible from the roadside," he concluded.

Spain: A UFO on the Algeciras to Ronda Highway (1958)








From Andalucía Misteriosa (Mysterious Andalusia)
By Angel Carretero Olmedo - GEIFO

YEAR 1958


Reference 19580000 between Algeciras and Ronda.

Driving in the early hours of the morning, the witness was accompanied in his vehicle by his wife, his father and a friend with the goal of spending a few hours hunting. In the vicinity of Cuevas del Becerro, they began to see a light that they believed at first was that of a patrol car.

As they approached the light, they realized that it was a strange object resting in the middle of the highway, covering it from end to end.

It was a circular artifact resembling an inverted soup bowl, fiery red in color, with a dome on top, lighting up everything around it. It measured approximately 7 meters in diameter by some 2 meters in height.

The driver stopped his car some 200 meters from the aforementioned object, waiting for the road to become empty again.

After a while, seeing that the UFO had no intentions of budging, the driver decided to approach slowly. At that point, the object began rising steadily into the air, eventually reaching an approximate altitude of 1000 meters. It flew over the car and landed again, this time some 200 meters behind the witnesses.

This behavior stimulated the curiosity of those aboard the vehicle. The driver turned around in the road and made an effort to approach the mysterious object once more. In this instance, the artifact rose silently into the air again, but unlike its previous behavior, it made a quick zig-zag and vanished at high speed.

Remarks: No investigation was conducted at the time, and therefore, rendering an objective opinion on the event is somewhat difficult.

Bolivia: Curiosity and Amazement over UFOs in Eastern Region (2005)







Source: La Patria

Date: October 14, 2005


* Channel 39 Managed to Capture Images of Five Unidentified Objects

Five unidentified flying objects (UFOs) were seen last Wednesday night over Eastern Oruro, causing curiosity and amazement in thousands of witnesses who managed to directly see those unknown images, which were also captured by Channel 39 of the Corporación Orurena de Comunicación (COC).

The flying objects appeared in the sky at 22:30 hours. They were two strange objects located in the eastern region that drew people's attention due to their red, green and blue lights, sequentially, and they also appeared and vanished in the firmament.

The most notorious one was a silvery, circular UFO that presented two circumferences -- a smaller one located inside the object and another outside the circumference, spinning at an impressive speed.

The spectacle drew the attention of local residents. Channel 39 staff managed to record the UFOs presence as citizens phoned the television station to describe what the could see from their respective areas.

Abel Flores Mujica, one of the witnesses, manifested his surprise at having seen the unidentified object in space.

"I refer to it as an artifact, since I couldn't believe what I was seeing. My daughter went outside and I told her: "That's a UFO. She replied that it it wasn't a UFO, that it was the planet Mars that was delayed in covering space (sic). But that object had lights and it wasn't a star. Last night's event startled me and then my daughter said: "Look, it's not the only one, there are others there", and it was evident," he said.

Channel 39 journalist and show host, Pedro Rubin de Celis, said that Wednesday night's sighting confirms the theory that we are not alone in the Universe. "This has been a marvelous presence of UFOs in the firmament, and many people stepped out onto their balconies to observe this spectacle. The camera zoom has shown us, beyond the vehicle's flashes, a circle making concentric movements within other circles around the vessel and with a black dot at the center. The objects also had their own movement," he explained.

Argentina: UFOs Over La Pampa (2005)












SOURCE: CIUFOS-LaPampa and Planeta UFO

DATE: 09.07.05


 The time was approximately 18:00 hours on October 16, 2004 and Gustavo Jose Montiel and his family was heading to Santa Rosa along Circunvalación Sur avenue from east to west. Upon merging with Ameghino Av, from north to south, he observed toward his left, some 45 degrees over the horizon and at an unspecified altitude and height, a "Flying Object"

 Faced with this circumstance, he alerted his wife and told her the object was not an airplane. The witness is linked to the aeronautical world through his activities involving electronics and radars. He stopped the vehicle and upon getting out, he looked on in amazement as "two devices, clearly visible, dark in color, shaped like inverted soup plates, were suspended in the air, venting long streams of vapor or white smoke from their lower surfaces."

 He immediately contacted the local airport control tower with his cellphone to ask whether "they had any aircraft in that sector". Tower personnel replied they did not, and that they could "not check that sector due to a lack of radar coverage." Finally, the witness remained along with other people, observing the phenomenon for several minutes, watching how the "long streams went up and down from those aerial vehicles."

 At a given moment, one of the UFOs "cut the stream and initiated an escape toward the east and over the city at a prodigious speed, vanishing in a matter of seconds."

 The remaining object "remained static for a few seconds then began moving in a southwesterly heading, vanishing in an equally sudden manner."
