Tecnología Obsoleta y La Cartoteca (2005-2020) – Punto final

Como habrán podido comprobar muchos de mis lectores, en las últimas semanas apenas he actualizado mis blogs. La falta de tiempo siempre ha sido un problema a la hora de escribir nuevos artículos con un mínimo de calidad, pero la situación se ha vuelto insostenible y necesito ordenar mis prioridades. Literalmente: no hay tiempo para dedicar a mis blogs personales, no al menos como se merecen. Así, tras quince años, he decidido cerrar Tecnología Obsoleta y La Cartoteca. No habrá nuevos artículos, aunque el contenido ya publicado se mantendrá tal como está ahora al menos hasta principios de 2021, cuando llegue el momento de renovar el contrato de hosting y decida qué hacer con ello. Por supuesto, hay cientos de historias que han quedado en el tintero. Iré publicando notas breve sobre ellas, así como sobre cartografía, en mis cuentas de redes sociales: Twitter y Facebook.

Han sido quince años llenos de historias apasionantes. Quiero agradecer con emoción a mis lectores que hayan estado ahí, muchos de ellos desde el principio. Gracias. Nuevos tiempos comienzan a partir de aquí. Para cualquier comentario, como siempre, enviadme un mensaje a las mencionadas redes o por correo electrónico.

Mexico: Alleged UFO Photographed Over Champotón Bay

Yesterday at 19:15 hours, local resident Luciano Carrillo captured an alleged unidentified flying object (UFO) over Champotón Bay. Visibility was low due to dust originating in the Sahara Desert.

The images were taken from Luciano Carrillo's cellphone in the vicnity of the Megaletras scenic lookout.

The author of the images explained that he was taking in the view - made unusual by the transoceanic dust storm - when he saw an object flying on the horizon.

"I immediately took the photos and shared them in my social network. The characteristics are very similar to those of a flying saucer," he said.

The image shows the small island in the bay with an object in the background. It has characteristics similar to those of a UFO.

Mexico: Giant UFO Startled La Paz Residents

Dozens of residents of La Paz witnessed an unusual event at 8 o'clock in the evening on Monday: a gigantic, well-defined circle in the heavens to the south of the city. Social media was flooded with reports suggesting the presence of a "mothership" over La Paz. The object remained motionless for at least half an hour.

This is an extraordinary event, since some believed that it had to do with a fire at the city landfill, which gives off a column of smoke that can be seen from various points of Baja California's capital. However, this cannot be ascertained at the time. The object appears to it into what has become known as Unidentified Flying Objects.

Reporter Erick León of Noticias La Paz, who managed to take several photographs, said this UFO is suspended 200 meters over the ground, and issued a glow that ranged from bright yellow to intense red.

Mexico: Military Jet Encounters Anomalous Object
By Alfonso Salazar, Aviation Technician

This afternoon, June 12, 2020, Learjet A31 of the High Command Naval Air Squadron of the Mexican navy, registration ANX-1205, was gaining altitude following takeoff from Mexico City International Airport. The Lear crossed paths with a spherical, metallic-looking object flying from north to south as the Mexican military jet traveled on an east to north trajectory. Weather was clear with scattered clouds. The UFO and the jet were flying at an altitude of approximately 12,000 meters (40,000 feet) and the aircraft continued its journey without interruptions. This encounter was witnessed through high-powered binoculars from the southern area of Mexico City.

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

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).

Ejido – state-supported communal farm system
Huasteca – A region spanning the states of Veracruz, Puebla, Hidalgo, San Luis Potosí, and Querétaro.

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 first...watch it move...it turned up now watch it go...the time is seven fifteen in the evening...today 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.
