Mexico: UFO Over Speedway During Formula 1 Trials
By Alfonso Salazar

During the Formula 1 speed trials this afternoon (October 29, 2016) the time being 1:25 in the afternoon, an unidentified flying object flew over the Hnos. Rodriguez speedway from west to east at an altitude of approximately 10,000 meters. The UFO flew at a speed comparable to that of aircraft. It was highly visible, as the sky was completely blue. Witnesses to the UFO's transit were on the orange stands to the left of the main track, and the UFO went off toward the eastern part of the city until it vanished from sight. It is worth noting that UFOs have been seen flying over the same speedway during other events, at times remaining static overhead. On one occasion, such a report was even transmitted live over Brazilian television.

Argentina: A UFO Landing Site in Tucumán?

Previously undisclosed material discloses one of the outer space phenomena with the highest global impact. In La Cocha, Tucumán, experts may have discovered the existence of a spacecraft (sic) landing area. Images captured show considerable UFO activity in the south of this province.

Experts are engaged in field studies to corroborate the strong presence and exploration missions by extraterrestrial craft (sic) in La Concha, a mountainous volcanic area located in the Argentinean northeast.

Most of the images involve alleged nocturnal sightings in both the bottoms and depths of hills and mountains and the airspace above them.

The space research center directed by Pablo Daniel Warmkraut was in charge of receiving these recordings which according to initial analyses confirm intense activity and the probable existence of underground bases in a mountainous area that includes inactive volcanoes. Researchers explained that they managed to identify strange objects through these videos. In some cases, they enter the mountains after flying in the air at an altitude of some 1500 meters.

Eyewitness accounts can be added to this undisclosed material, retelling their experiences with spacecraft (sic). The flights are not only nocturnal: images have been recorded in broad daylight.

Grupo Aurora, directed by Pablo Daniel Warmkraut, received the images and after conducting their evaluation, made contact with other ufologists of international relevance and reached the conclusion that the hitherto unknown event could lead to interesting scientific research. For this reason, the specialist indicated that field work would soon commence in the mountainous area in southern Tucumán.

"The report was made by the special group at La Cocha, consisting of Carlos Burgi, Daniel Ponssa, Carlos Sahid, Hernán Cevallos, Omar Cyriani, Rubén Molina, Roberto Blanco, Luis Guevara, Miguel Arce, Pedro Navarro, Graciela Navarro and Carlos Dallagata. Most of them have direct experiences with the events taking place in Tucumán," said Warmkraut.

The researcher explained that the material submitted from La Cocha involves actual eyewitness accounts and videos in which UFOs can be seen entering a hillside, as well as the moment in which these objects emerge from the mountain and vanish into space. He added that a numerous ufologists have been working at the site for several months and has managed to capture startling images of great clarity.

Así se formaron los anillos de un cráter de la Luna

En la Luna se localiza la cuenca Oriental, apenas visible desde la Tierra, una de los más jóvenes y mejor conservadas de todo el sistema solar. Se formó hace 3.800 millones de años tras el impacto de un objeto de 64 km de diámetro. Los movimientos geológicos posteriores han borrado el cráter inicial y han creado tres anillos, según se ha comprobado ahora con los datos de la misión GRAIL.

¿Se vacían todos los vasos cuando se ponen en posición horizontal?

La experiencia nos dice que un vaso cilíndrico con líquido se vacía cuando se pone en posición horizontal pero, en cambio, una pajita con líquido no lo hace. Una investigación liderada por la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid ha estudiado bajo qué condiciones el líquido en cuestión permanece o fluye y su hallazgo apunta a que no solo importa el tamaño del tubo, sino también su forma. Los resultados obtenidos son tan sorprendentes como contraintuitivos y han dado lugar a la solicitud de varias patentes internacionales.

Hillary Clinton Wants to Publicly Discuss the UFO Phenomenon

It's no secret that Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta have a keen interest in the subject of unidentified flying objects -- both have publicly discussed this interest, and their intention to instigate disclosure of any material that they're able to obtain. Correspondence found in the recent Wikileaks release of Clinton's hacked emails reinforce their views, showing Podesta discussed UFOs with late Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell, as well as other individuals that may have had insider information on the subject.

Hello Strangers: The Mid-70s Humanoid Wave



Hello Strangers: The Mid-70s Humanoid Wave
By Scott Corrales © 2016

Following an event like 1973’s “year of the humanoids” could be a tough act, especially when that year came to a close with the excitement and disappointment over comet Kohoutek, billed as “the greatest stellar display in millennia”. 1974, however would bring its own compelling cases, some of which remain little known even to this day.
The activity which had set the mainland U.S. into a ufological convulsion would soon start manifesting itself in one of its dependencies – the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico, a self-governing commonwealth under the U.S. flag.

On January 3, 1974, at 8:10 p.m., when ten families totaling over a dozen individuals of various ages reported seeing a slightly flattened, circular object flying low over the Flamingo Terrace development in Bayamón, P.R.. CEOVNI investigator William Santana conducted thorough interviews with the witnesses, who coincided in their description of the object. Only a few weeks prior to the sighting, local children claimed to have encountered a bizarre, monkey-like being in the woods surrounding the development. Whether this creature was linked in any way to the subsequent events was never determined.

The flurry of strange events on the island would also cattle mutilations, strange creatures and Marian apparitions. An hour-long television documentary – Platillos Voladores Sobre Puerto Rico: Documento Confidencial (Flying Saucers Over Puerto Rico: Confidential Document) - produced by Jorge Marquina aired on Puerto Rican television, recounting the highlights of these incredible events. One of the documentary’s segments involved the curious story of a group of young people who had found themselves besieged by thoroughly bizarre creatures during a visit to the rainforest.
Nine campers -- students led by three adults -- had gone to El Yunque, the island’s mountain rainforest, on October 20, 1973 hoping to “contact” UFOs and their occupants. They made camp high up on a mountain trail, preparing to spend a night that would turn out to be the longest in their lives.

The group’s official leader, Heriberto Ramos, stated that at one point during their ascent along the trail, they met three persons heading downward. There was nothing “alien” about the trio aside from the fact that they all dressed exactly alike and with similar features. One of the group members, who had stayed behind, took a photo of both the other group members and the three mysterious walkers, but only a patch of mist appeared on the developed film where the trio stood.



At a given moment that evening, thoroughly convinced that an otherwise uneventful vigil lay ahead, the campers were surrounded by five or six vaguely humanoid figures which darted about the thick vegetation with claw-like hands and elongated ears. Some of the “monsters” blocked the precipice-flanked trail that constituted the only way down from the mountain and back to the safety of their vehicles.

From a prudent distance, one of the creatures regarded Ramos intently. Upon noticing this, the latter tried walking cautiously toward the eldritch being, hoping to show that his group’s intentions were amicable. Ramos stood less than ten feet away from the creature, and was able to describe it as having a triangular head, and “extraordinary” eyes. Amazingly, he managed to touch the strange being, which did not stir. Its skin felt neither cold nor rubbery. Almost simultaneously, one of the students lit a large, powerful flashlight in the direction where the contact was taking place, flooding the area with light.

The clawed creature reacted by racing away from the scene, literally tearing a path right through the dense vegetation, which led to a 100 foot drop, giving the startled Ramos reason to think he had frightened the being into jumping. To the man’s amazement, it reappeared instantly at the side of its fellows, which were still blocking the downward path.

At sunrise, the campers made a mad dash for the cars they’d left parked at the bottom of the mountain. Not a trace of the alien intruders remained aside from their footprints, which were much larger than a human’s and appeared to have been made by very heavy creatures, in comparison to the smaller footprints left by the humans. Their valor rekindled by the morning light, the campers made plaster-of-paris casts of the prints and photographed them. These materials were stolen by unknown parties months after the incident, including valuable infrared prints.

Creatures and Volcanos

Four thousand miles away from tropical, UFO-besieged Puerto Rico, a strange case was playing out in Chile.

The story involved a teenager of native stock who went by the name of Lucio Quevedo, and whose story would be made known in later years by researcher Jorge Anfruns. The young man showed particular talent in the plastic and visual arts, and lived in a kind of dormitory reserved for poor youngsters of promise on the outskirts of the city of Putre.

One evening in June 1974 when his chores were done, Lucio headed for the room in the door for a well- deserved rest. Suddenly, he saw someone standing at the doorway leading into the refectory. Fearing that it could be an escapee from the country’s political detention centers (Chile had been under martial law since August 1973) he thought it would best to challenge the figure and if necessary, summon the instructors living on the premises for help.

Lucio found that the refectory was bathed in a strange light that did not issue from any of the fixtures in the room. Stranger still, the “person” was standing on one of the chairs. Fully in control of any fear he must have felt, the teenager challenged the visitor, demanding to know his intentions. The strange visitor jumped off the chair and told to rest assured that “nothing bad would happen to him.”

The young man would subsequently describe the entity as a rather tall, hunched and slender male figure clad in a dark, shiny suit that gave off a purplish cast (like a black light bulb) with short, platinum blond hair and a gaunt face “like that of a corpse”. It wore a wide belt from which hung a number of “orbs and rhombuses”. The uncanny visitor reached for one of these, held it out to Lucio, and asked him to see his own reflection. The boy did so, only to be blinded by a flash of light.

Badly frightened, the teenager returned to bed, but was unable to sleep. His roommates would later find that he was unable to breathe and was rigid, with a stiffness of the neck muscles that led some of the residential instructors to believe he had meningitis. A physician would later determine that Lucio appeared to suffer from a “kind of influenza that affected his nervous system.”

Stranger still was his sudden recovery hours later, which astonished his peers. The situation would enter the realm of high strangeness when one of students came in to advise the teachers that Lucio had “jumped headfirst out of one of the dorm’s windows” to the ground, a ten foot drop. Teachers and students engaged in a search for the missing Lucio, wandering through ravines and gullies. He was finally found, but under strange circumstances, “surrounded by little people with luminous objects in their hands.”



Lucio’s illness had returned, unresponsive and apparently in a state of shock. When his shoes were removed, it was found that they were full of a kind of gravel that was volcanic in nature – a type of soil found at the Taapaca Volcano, many hours away on muleback. Even more disturbing was that the youth’s fingers presented signs of having been pierced by a triangular object, leaving both hands red and swollen. A doctor determined that a considerable amount of blood had been removed from the hapless teen, leaving him nearly anemic.
No explanation was readily available, and the mystery only grew when Lucio recovered days later and was able to tell his story. A voice, he said, had urged him to get dressed and go outside, since he was needed. He jumped out the window, he said, held aloft by two small, very realistic entities in white, who held him aloft. The diminutive figures bore him away to the slopes of the Taapaca, where Lucio felt the need to leave “footprints on the soil, in case someone came looking for him.”

He had been brought to an enclosure filled with work stations, buttons, “crystals with little levers” and other glowing lights of many colors. The entities had transported here to instruct him on how to build something that would be beneficial to humanity as a whole. He was forced to drink a liquid in a chalice from a material similar to glass, and told he would not have to go anywhere to secure materials to build the device. The teenager had only hazy memories of the trip back to the dorm area, only remembering beautiful structures and glass domes in a ravine, suggesting cities.
A subsequent visit by state policemen to the area – which could only be reached with great difficulty – found the footprints that Lucio had purportedly left on the ashen slopes of the Taapaca Volcano, as well as other prints, left by the “luminous platforms” that the diminutive, large headed creatures used as conveyances.

Although the case made it to the local tabloid press, nothing further was ever said about the young man who lived through a harrowing high-strangeness episode. His description of the cadaver-like features of the tall entity that appeared in the dorm is oddly reminiscent of two other cases in which entities are described as looking “undead”: The first of these is the so-called “Freddy Miller” incident (Dominican Republic, 11 Sep 1973) in which the witness described the non-human figure as The witness remarked that his alien interlocutor had a having “a disgusting grayish-yellow skin tone that he found repulsive, spoke in a thick, deliberate voice and was virtually hairless. The entity's body was covered by a form-fitting green coverall without zippers or pockets.” The witness, a traveling salesman, was convinced that the creature was dead, yet alive.

The other case occurred in November 1974 on the outskirts of Huesca, Spain. It involved a couple who stopped their car to have a bizarre conversation with a pointy-faced, all-too-human ufonaut, who asked if they could lend him a wrench to perform repairs above his craft. Identifying itself as “Dr. Flor, from Barcelona”, the entity also gave the alarmed human couple the impression of being a corpse.

Return of the “Michelin Men”

Humanoid figures connected to the UFO phenomenon and described as “Michelin Men” occupy a category of their own within the phenomenon. Slow moving and featureless, their bulbous, ringed outward appearance resembling Bibendum, the representative logo of the Michelin tire company since the early 20th century, these entities have been reported all around the world in cases that would always prompt a smile due to the inevitable comparison with the joyful tire “pitchman”. Some of the earliest encounters with these beings - although it has been said that they could be artificial - go back to the 1950s (specifically the Dinan, France, episode of 1955 in Flying Saucer Review). STENDEK, a defunct Spanish UFO journal, presented a case involving similar beings: In the summer of 1960, Miguel Timermans, a schoolteacher from Prado del Rey (Cadiz) in southern Spain, decided to go on a weekend run on his Lambretta motorcycle to the city of Jerez. It was a clear, beautiful morning and visibility was unlimited. As he drove uphill at some point between Prado del Rey and the town of Arcos, a colossal figure appeared out of nowhere along the roadside. Timermans described it as well over two meters (6.5 ft.) and encased in a "swollen" red one-piece suit. Shocked, the teacher brought his motorcycle to a halt right in the middle of the highway as an overpowering sense of fear washed over him: the giant entity was slowly walking toward him along the edge of the highway.



Recalling the event, Timermans remarked that the creature's pressure suit or outfit was composed of "concentric rings" which also reminded him of the Michelin Man. The bizarre figure lurched forward, robotically, measuring its steps.

Timermans was doubly startled to see another creature walking behind the giant! The second entity was barely over a meter tall and had what appeared to be a glossy black "boot" covering one of the legs of its red outfit. It, too, walked awkwardly as it brought up the rear. The enigmatic figures crossed Timerman's path diagonally and vanished from sight after an encounter that lasted no more than 30 seconds. Kick-starting the Lambretta, the teacher headed for the place where the creatures had last been seen and was unable to find a trace of their presence.

The November 1974 issue of the French UFO publication Lumiéres dans la Nuit featured a fascinating Belgian case whose detail closely resemble those of the Spanish and Argentinean events.
On January 7, 1974, a 31 year old Belgian man known only as "Monsieur X" was driving his car between the towns of Comines and Warneton on the border between France and Belgium. The time was shortly before 9 p.m. on a clear, damp winter night when "Monsieur X" 's vehicle, which had been functioning flawlessly, suddenly sputtered to a halt as the headlights went out. As the vehicle coasted to a halt on the otherwise empty roadway, the driver became aware of an object some 300 feet away in a field bordering the road. At first he took it to be a stack of hay, but almost immediately noticed that the "haystack" was propped up on three struts. The witness would later go on to say that the object had the basin-shape of a W.W.I soldier's helmet.

Fascinated by the yellowish-white light issuing from the distant vehicle, "Monsieur X" was unaware of two figures walking toward his vehicle in the moonlit darkness. At first he took them to be a farmer and his son, attracted, perhaps by the singular object in the field. Casting a second look, he realized his mistake.

The two beings could not have been less farmer-like: striding toward the car with stiff, deliberate paces, the shorter of the two resembled Bibendum, the Michelin Man, only with rings not as clearly delineated as those on the famous corporate image. The being's circular helmet concealed a featureless pear-shaped face with dark sockets; its taller companion had a similarly grotesque visage but did not resemble its counterpart.

Given their deliberate movements and the brightness of the moonlight, "Monsieur X" was able to make out a number of interesting details, such as the fact that the short "Michelin Man"-like figure appeared armed with a triangular weapon in its hand and that both figures had heavy, pointed boots.

The two entities came to within thirteen feet of the car before stopping. "Monsieur X" claimed to have felt a "shock" to the base of his skull followed by a low-pitched sound that became increasingly louder. But there would be no thrilling contact scenario here -- for no reason, the tall and short being made a sudden about face in near-military fashion and headed back to the landed vehicle at a much faster pace than before.

In 1975, they staged an appearance in the distant island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, a French dependency. After hearing a painful, ear-splitting sound within his head, the witness allegedly saw a hat-shaped object in a nearby field, issuing a buzzing noise. Out of this structure emerged a small entity “looking like the Michelin Man”, clumsily walking along the ground and digging for soil samples. A companion soon joined the improbable figure in the activity, although the witness noted that neither figure was attempting to save samples in bags they had ostensibly brought along for the purpose. The creatures eventually boarded their hat-shaped conveyance and took off. Subsequent police investigations found strange marks on the ground.



"Michelin Man"-type ufonauts were also to play a role two years later in the Goodland, Kansas UFO event, a CE-3 that reportedly took place on June 20, 1976. The couple involved in the case, identified only as “Joe” and “Carol”, were traveling along the western edge of Kansas (location sometimes given as Colby and not Goodland) when they were abducted and subjected to physical examinations. The case, reported to CUFOS, is the first that shows these strange entities interacting with humans.

New Evidence of Hidden Chambers in the Great Pyramid has been Unveiled

The discovery of thermal anomalies detected on the exterior of the Great Pyramid of Giza last November indicated to researchers that there may be a series of hidden chambers and passageways there, undiscovered by modern Egyptology. In an attempt to verify the presence of these potential chambers, the researchers turned to other imaging methods, including using a technique developed by researchers at Nagoya University in Japan that used deep-penetrating cosmic rays, where evidence of hidden chambers were found in the Bent Pyramid in Dahshour last December.

Mystery Planet Nine's Gravity may be Causing Sun to Tilt

Earlier this year, strong evidence for the existence of a massive, undiscovered planet that orbits beyond the reaches of Pluto was presented by the California Institute of Technology, having run detailed computer simulations of the orbits of known trans-Neptunian objects. The simulations showed that the existing orbits of these objects couldn't follow their current paths without the presence of another planet, approximately ten times the mass of the Earth, with an orbit that comes no closer than 30.5 billion km (19 billion miles) to the Sun.

Spain: UFO with Humanoid Occupants (1980)



1980: UFO with Humanoid Occupants in Lugo, Spain
By López Castro (Lugo)
Contactos Extraterrestres #7
Translation by Scott Corrales (IHU)


The time would have been around Sunday, 9 March 1980. A town, some men, an artifact and three strange beings that could have well been extraterrestrial. A little more than just the garden-variety UFO.
Two residents of Lugo, Carlos P.L - who refused to give further identification, fearful of what may arise - and Miguel Palacios, visited the little town of Ronfe in the municipality of Sarria, Province of Lugo, to spend the weekend with their relatives. Both met to play cards at a tavern owned by the former's parents.

Around ten o'clock Saturday evening, Carlos noticed brightness "very similar to one he had seen at the TV retransmitting station at Paramo. I didn't pay much attention to it aside from an anecdotal remark to my family." We learned that one of Carlos's children wanted to go outside for a look, but his parents forbid it, as it was "foolish to do so, kid."



In the early hours of the morning, around 2 a.m., Carlos had to go outside the tavern and was stunned: in an empty field, some three hundred meters and at the other side of the river, he saw something he would have never imagined: a large, shell-shaped object, both on its upper and lower section, with numerous portholes around it. it gave the impression of having touched the ground, although no ground impressions were ever found. Standing close to this vehicle were three very strange humanoid entities, issuing a bright light "as if they were stuck in a block of ice and wore white coveralls." Most surprising yet was that they carried light sources in their hands which put forth a dim red light.



Carlos made sure he wasn't dreaming and called to those inside the place of business to come outside. Miguel Palacios was the first one out, and was able to see the brightness, the object and one of the occupants. He agrees with his friend on the description.

However, José Díaz López, a resident of Ronfe, who also went outside to see what was going on, was only able to see "brightness toward Sarria, but my eyes aren't too good, and I'd been discussing the need to visit the optometrist at that very moment."



According to experts in the subject of UFOs, the fact that the ship or object did not leave prints does not mean it wasn't there, as it wasn't necessary for the object to land.

The powerful light given off by the vessel was yellowish and lambent, illuminating nearly three hundred meters around. As far as noise was concerned, the witnesses were unable to provide details, suggesting that it was not very intense. "Since a river runs nearby, we were only able to hear a very muted whistling sound."

That Saturday afternoon, Carlos had covered 90 kilometers with his car and when he parked in front of the tavern it had been in perfect shape. Shortly after the sighting, he was unable to get the car started. "This car always turns over immediately - it's a brand new Ford Fiesta." Once the craft took off at high speed, he was able to start the car without further complications.

Carlos will not be gainsaid. "I saw it with my very own eyes. I know nothing about UFOs and have never read anything about them." He doesn't believe or disbelieve in the existence of creatures from another world. Doesn't know whether these were aliens or not. "It matters not at all to me. I can only tell you what I saw."

New Horizons has a New Target, The Solar System's Newest Member, and Another Crashed ESA Mars Probe: Space News for October, 2016

The European Space Agency just can't seem to catch a break: the organization hasn't been able to successfully land a space probe on Mars, with the latest setback marked by the identification of the crash site of ExoMars' Schiaparelli lander. The ESA's previous attempt at putting a probe on mars was the ill-fated Mars Express Beagle 2 lander, in 2003.

The probe entered Mars' atmosphere on October 19, but contact was lost seconds after its descent parachute was jettisoned. An investigation into the probe's telemetry shows that the parachute was released too early, and the descent thrusters did not fire long enough, resulting in the probe crashing into the Martian landscape.

The Family of UFO Conspiracy Advocate Max Spiers Thinks he may have been Murdered

On July 15, 39-year old presenter on the UFO conspiracy circuit Max Spiers was found dead on the sofa of an apartment that he was staying at in Poland. His body has since been returned to his hometown in Canterbury, England, after Polish authorities determined that he had died from "natural causes." However, his mother has recently revealed a number of clues that cast doubt on the official cause of his' death -- clues that suggest he was murdered, possibly by practitioners of black magic.

An up-and-coming speaker on the conspiracy convention circuit, Spiers was in Warsaw, Poland, to speak at the New Earth Conference being held there, presumably regarding his alleged experiences in a government-run super soldier program, and his views on related conspiracies.

Spies and Saucers



Spies and Saucers

By Scott Corrales
(c) 2016



The “mad scientist” working alone in a laboratory – a dank subterranean facility laden with electrical equipment and beakers of strange liquids – is a one of the most recognizable tropes in the written and visual field. From Doctor Frankenstein in his many incarnations, summoning lightning from the heavens to animate his creation, to Captain Nemo in his unassailable submarine, to even the humorous depiction of the scientist Hans Zarkov by Topol in Flash Gordon (1980), it is an image that has been with us and which we have come to accept without question.

“There was this fear, because of the bomb,” says psychologist Stuart Vyse, “of the power of science to create fearful creatures or to harm us in some way. That’s the equivalent of the typical villains, Halloween movie villains’ superhuman strength or unusual power. Science has that too. And so I think that’s part of the reason why scientists are sometimes placed in that fearful role.” (Cari Romm, The Enduring Scariness of the Mad Scientist, Atlantic Magazine, 10.29.2014).

In the UFO field we come across the mad scientist and his inevitable counterpart, the mad inventor. The latter works alone, avoids kidnapping hapless passerby for experiments (one hopes) and is bent on creating a machine, substance or device that will revolutionize human transportation or at least not get rejected by the patent office. William Cooper - of MJ-12 fame - wrote extensively about Thomas Townsend Brown, the inventor who began his work on anti-gravity as early as the 1920s in his home laboratory (where else?) and failed in his effort to interest the faculty at the California Institute of Technology in his discoveries. Two decades later, the indefatigable Brown was still at it, trying to convince military and industry alike about the usefulness of his "electrogravitics" to power military and civilian aviation, and even spacecraft.

Roughly around the same time that Townsend was at his most active, a World War I aviator named W.H.S. Ashlin was approaching the government of Chile with a most usual offer. Ashlin’s offer to build a “flying saucer” for the Royal Air Force, where he had proudly served, had been rebuffed; he now turned to the Commander in Chief of the Chilean Army with a similar offer. Roberto Banch mentions this in his Guia Biográfica de la Ufología Argentina (Buenos Aires: CEFAI, 2000), adding that aside from a mention in Chile’s La Nación newspaper, no further mention is made of Ashlin or his technological marvels. One is tempted to think about the Anglo-Chilean wizard “Manuel O’Bean” from Michael Moorcock’s The Wizard of the Air.

“Mad scientists” were not in short supply across the Andes. Juan B.Leone of Argentina’s Escuela de Bellas Artes had already come up with his own flying saucer – a propeller-driven, circular device that was presented to his country’s military -- in 1944 with little success. A photo of the inventor and his simple yet effective device appeared in the Argentinean press (La Razón) in 1947.
Banch’s compilation of intriguing inventions inspired by saucer-shapes does not end here. He includes a statement from Julio Ruiz, a technician with the Post and Communications Office, stating that “the flying disk” had been in existence in Argentina since 1941. While no illustration is provided, the device in question is described as having the shape of a disk with an engine providing “vertical and horizontal motion, a rudder and an aileron”.

The “war years” of the 1940s offer researchers a treasure trove of unusual and unexpected information. One such is Dossier 1093/258 of the British Foreign Office, dated 4 April to 23 July 1943 and bearing the title: “Agents (Enemy): Eduardo Rogada Quintinho, Artur Viana Dos Santos; Oscar Liehr, Niles Christensen”. The folio contains military correspondence about the measures to be taken against enemy agents at large in the countries that had remained neutral during the war. One missive deals with “the transportation to Trinidad of Nils Christensen, a German agent detailed in Brazil”.
Christensen was a particularly lucky catch for the Allies, as his Brazil-centered espionage network kept tabs on British shipping operations from the ports on the Brazilian coast down to Buenos Aires itself, aiding and abetting the sinking of tonnage by submarines. According to the Naval History and Heritage Command (www.histor.navy.mil), “this was the most successful period of German espionage in the Western Hemisphere.”

This notorious spy becomes of interest to ufology for a single reason. When put on trial for espionage in Brazil, he claimed to be “the inventor of the flying saucer”, adding that between 1939 and 1941, while employed in the research division of the Wermacht’s 10th Army, he had invented “flying saucers” as observation devices, capable of being produced quickly and cheaply. A boast aimed at unnerving his captors? Or had the spy actually played a role in the creation of man-made saucers?

The German U-boat Fabled to have Fought Off a Sea Monster May have been Found

During it's patrol of the Belfast Lough in Ireland on April 30, 1918, the HMS Coreopsis encountered a strange sight: a German U-Boat, surfaced in broad daylight, manned by a crew that seemed all too willing to surrender to the British sloop. Stranger still was the tale told by UB-85's Kapitänleutnant, Günther Krech, when questioned by the Coreopsis' crew as to why he and his ship were caught so easily, while their respective nations were still at war.

The tale told by Krech was a tall one, as if pulled from the pages of a Jules Verne yarn: the previous night, while surfaced to recharge the submarine's batteries, the ship was attacked by a large creature, that latched itself onto the ship, causing it to list heavily to starboard:

A Major Comet Impact may have Caused a Global Temperature Spike 55 Million Years Ago

The levels of carbon dioxide found in the atmosphere in modern times have been found to be nearly ten times higher than any other time since the extinction of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago. The event that came the closest to today's CO2 levels, the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), occurred 55.5 million years ago, where a spike in greenhouse gasses caused global temperatures to increase by 5–8 °C over what we're experiencing today. While the existence and cause of the PETM is well established, the source of the massive amount of CO2 that caused the temperature spike has been a complete mystery to scientists.

Argentina: Triangular UFO Over Rosario

Sighting Location: Rosario, Province of Santa Fe (Argentina)
Sighting Date: Monday, 3 October 2016
Time: 20:10 Hours
Witness: Oscar Bella


On Monday, October 3rd of this year, Mr. Oscar Bella saw three shining white lights in the sky moving simultaneously in unison forming a triangle that traveled silently in a circular pattern.

The witness states this is the firt time he has any anything unusual in the sky, and was so startled by it that he decided to do a web search to find something similar to what he had seen over Rosario. He came across what the objects defined as triangular black UFOs.

Mr. Bella got in touch with Visión Ovni to see if others had witnessed these three lights or anything like them.

He also stated that he had hitherto not believed in UFOs, since hadn't seen one. [The event] changed his perspective as he learned that this set of three lights had been seen in many parts of the world.

Mr. Bella would also have a second sighting:

Sighting Location: Rosario, Province of Santa Fe (Argentina)
Sighting Date: Monday, 17 October 2016
Time: 20:05 Hours
Witness: Oscar Bella


Oscar Bella files a new sighting on Monday at 20:05 hours at the same place as the one two weeks ago.

The sighting location was above the intersection of Caferata and San Nicolás streets. The object displayed a greater number of lights than the previous one. On this occasion it was shaped like a boomerang and flew at a higher altitude.

Oddly enough, the event took place at the same date and time, witnessing it from the corridor of his own house as he set out to pick up his son.

We are looking for more witnesses to these two sightings to contribute new elements to the investigation. Should you be able to provide more information please contact asimondini@gmail.com

October 1973 Remembered



Sitting, as we are, smack-dab in the middle of the month of October, it is worth remembering a month much like this one forty-three years ago, in a year that would become known as "The Year of the Humanoids" due to the number of close encounters of the third kind (CE-3s) reported in that month and throughout the year. While attention was understandably focused on the U.S. cases, the wave of unusual events had a global scope.

The case involving Dionisio Llanca in Argentina took place on 25 October 1973, Mexico gave us the controversial Cocoyoc UFO photos, Spain reported in with the sinister hooded humanoids of the Rupit Case in June '73, and a succession of similar events. Interestingly, as the "Year of the Humanoids" waned, it renewed its vigor during the following year, giving us a wealth of cases in elsewhere on the planet.



A number of admirable books capture the feel of the time, among them Len Strinfield's Situation Red: The UFO Siege and Kevin Randle's The October Scenario, Robert and Judy Blum's Beyond Earth and Robert Emenegger's UFOs Past Present and Future.

So as you watch the rich, red leaves of autumn falling of the trees, think back to a moment in time when the UFO phenomenon appeared to truly live among us, commanding the attention of television and print media on an almost daily basis.

Unseen Foes: Hostile Contact With Non-Human Entities



Unseen Foes: Hostile Contact With Non-Human Entities
By Scott Corrales (c) 2016

To call them ufonauts would evoke unwanted associations with the long-haired, blonde entities of the Adamskian tradition or the Greys that peppered UFO research in the 1990s. In some cases there is no structured craft suggesting an interplanetary origin or even a actinic light that conjures up a paranormal provenance. “Things” appear to unchain a series of events in unsuspecting communities having absolutely no interest in matters involving ufology or even the human space age, now receding into the past as civilization chooses to journey inward.

Time and distance separate us from some of these events in such a way that it is quite understandable how contemporary researchers would feel more comfortable dismissing them as rumor, journalistic exaggeration or outright hoax. Publishing pictures of lights in the sky is far more satisfying, of course.

Nevertheless, I feel these cases deserve their day in court, despite the inability to put the events -- or their witnesses -- on the stand.

A very important book was lost among the raging storms of UFO controversy in the abductions-or-nothing mid-90s. A distinguished author, Chile’s Jorge Anfruns, had published Extraterrestres en Chile, a compelling summary of his country’s extensive UFO and high strangeness history, told in an engaging first person style. Anfruns did not shy away from the requisite abduction experiences, which were truly mind-bending, but other cases were just as intriguing. In particular, a 1987 visit by the Chilean author to neighboring Bolivia, high up in the Andean Plateau, where he met up with fellow investigator Pedro Araneda, who brought him up to speed on a series of strange events that took place along the border between their respective nations.

As it so happened, a luminous object descended out of the dark, starry Andean night while members of the Aymara native community slept. Their uneventful hours of rest were broken by the intensity of the unknown light, and by the more disturbing sight of strange people wandering the streets of their village. Not given to confrontation, the locals decided to bar their doors and wait for daylight before taking action.

The morning sun would bring with it the alarming news that the ‘strangers’ had tried to abduct a teenage shepherdess. Her would-be captors were described as tall, robust individuals with long blond hair clad in glowing outfits. The shock was such that the girl died of a heart attack.

Araneda continued with his story. While peaceful, the locals decided that defense against these intruders was of the essence. On successive nights, the unknown characters tried breaking into homes, battering the doors. The locals – who earned their living from mining – had dynamite available and weren’t afraid to use it. Throwing sticks of explosive (“tiros de dinamita”, in the original) convinced the attackers that the village was able and willing to defend itself from these attacks, causing them to withdraw.
The situation went on for more than a week until the Bolivian press and radio began spreading the word about the strange situation. An Aymara delegation went to La Paz, the nation’s capital, to press their case, requesting government involvement in the matter.

It emerged – writes Anfruns in his book – that the Andean natives had long been aware of these lights and entities. Glowing orbs would land on the foothills and the summits, bizarre entities had been seen wandering the dust-choked roads, and there appeared to be seasonality to these events, with the months of April and July being the ones in which sightings and landings were more frequent.

The beings didn’t always share the same morphology. When prompted for a description, Araneda told Anfruns: “[These beings] are completely different from them [the natives], being thin, small, large-headed, helmeted, with large, shiny, black eyes like plums. People know there’s stuff going up there, but Aymaras aren’t given to talking about them.” (Extraterrestres en Chile, p. 81).
Whether the government listened to the native villagers’ plea for assistance isn’t reported. Bolivia has had an extensive history of UFO experiences and the higher echelons of their military probably had a good idea of what it was up against.

Communities elsewhere have been besieged by UFOs, much like the Brazilian community of Colhares, a case described in detail in Jacques Vallée’s Confrontations and in even more detail in Vampiros Extraterrestres Na Amazonia by Daniel Rebisso Giese, books recommended to the interested reader. I will briefly summarize it here: Colhares, near the city of Belem, across from the isle of Marajó, which forms part of the Amazon Delta, found its placid tropical existence shattered by manifestations of still-unexplained, boxlike machines knows as "chupas" firing beams of white light against townspeople. Aside from the corresponding burn, victims of these roving devices would experience lassitude and blackouts. People were afraid to go outdoors after sundown, taking to firing weapons into the air in the vain hope of chasing the intruders away, while the unknown's mantle of fear enshrouded the community. Unlike the Bolivian situation, the Brazilian military responded in force with Operação Prato (Project Saucer)

Anfruns moves on to an even more disturbing story which can understandably be dismissed as anecdotal, as no names or dates are given due to the highly sensitive nature of the event. It took place “at some point along the Chilean, Bolivian or perhaps Peruvian borders, which I have no intention to recall,” he writes.

A detachment of police officers on horseback – the only way to get around in the mountainous terrain – was proceeding down the gorge known as Quebrada de las Bandurrias (two different ones appear on the map, the northernmost at 28°08′52″S 70°59′52″W, but nowhere near the border. Possibly a third gorge of the same name?). The five riders, as tired and thirsty as their mounts, suddenly became aware of something ‘resembling a silvery house’ farther down the canyon. The lieutenant in charge of the small detachment realized that they must have come across the lair of a notorious band of fur smugglers – dealing in valuable vicuña skins – that operated in the area. He ordered his men to fan out as quietly as possible. One of the policemen dismounted, picked up a rock, and threw it against the silvery structure, causing its occupants to emerge and take up defensive positions. At this point, the lieutenant ordered his men to open fire.

“This,” the author goes on to say, “was the start of the most uneven fight of the century.”

The bullets streaming from the policemens firearms were met with bright beams of cohered light, able to “pierce their targets and split them open like cauliflowers” (p. 105). The patrol’s horses made the easiest targets. One of the long-suffering mounts burst from the inside out. A member of the patrol was felled by another such beam, leaving a devastating wound on his chest. Retreat being the only alternative, the lieutenant and the survivors made their way back to headquarters, reaching it two days later and delivering a full report on the situation. A larger, heavily equipped response force subsequently arrived at the Andean gorge, finding no trace of the silvery “shack”, but ascertaining that traces of horse blood were indeed on the sand. The bodies of the fallen police officers were also gone.

Can we believe such a story? Was a simple but tragic encounter between law enforcement and fur smugglers grotesquely embellished with elements worthy of an old pulp magazine? There’s no way of telling.

There can be no question, however, that law enforcement comes across bizarre situations, even closer to home than they would like. In August 1995, police officer José Collazo became the unwilling protagonist in a highly-dramatic scene involving the enigmatic creature popularly known as the Chupacabras. Collazo spoke at length with Spanish journalist Magdalena del Amo regarding his harrowing experience.

According to Collazo, he and his wife were getting ready for bed at around 11:00 p.m. one night when they suddenly heard the alarm on their car go off. Suspecting a thief, Collazo picked up his service revolver and went out to his carport, where he was confronted by a surrealistic scene: his pet Chow dog was engaged in a losing battle with what he first took to be another dog sinking its fangs into the Chow's back. According to Collazo, he soon realized that the intruder was not a dog -- in fact, not even a creature of this world.

The officer felt himself engulfed in fear for his own life. He aimed his .357 Magnum against the unknown creature and fired a sure shot at it. The creature "rolled up into a ball," Collazo explained, and bounced off one of the carport walls before disappearing out the back into the warm night air.

During the course of an interview with Spanish journalist Magdalena del Amo, the policeman observed that concern for his car kept him from firing further shots at the intruder. Nonetheless, the creature left patches of thick fur on the carport floor and traces of blood on the wall. It also left a noxious odor which persisted for well over a week, resisting all efforts to eliminate through the use of assorted detergents.

NASA Develops a Bandage that uses Electricity to Heal Wounds

Researchers at NASA have developed a new substance that generates minute amounts of electricity, for use in a bandage that takes advantage of an electrically-based healing process. This new substance, a polymer called polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), produces a mild electrical current when pressure or heat, such as body heat, is applied to it.

“This method utilizes generated low level electrical stimulation to promote the wound healing process while simultaneously protecting it from infection,” according to NASA.

Fruto de la colisión de mundos que supone el aerotrastorno proporcionado por los dos autores de este libro de casi quinientas páginas y más de trescientas imágenes, ha sido esta compilación con los aviones más fascinantes, extraños, raros y arriesgados de toda la historia (en la introducción explicamos por qué utilizamos el término “bizarros”, para quienes se hayan alarmado ante el false friend). En los próximos días iré comentando más detalles del libro. Queda comentar que, quien lo compre en reserva hasta principios de noviembre, recibirá una exclusiva lámina realizada por el pintor aeronáutico Eduardo Alonso. Y, para terminar, cabe mencionar que el prólogo del libro ha sido realizado por el campeón de vuelo acrobático Cástor Fantoba.

Up to One-Third of Native Americans may have Ancient European Roots

A genetic study of the world's oldest anatomically-modern human, the body of a boy buried 24,000 years ago near Siberia's Lake Baikal, has revealed that this individual was of European ancestry. This finding is surprising, in that Lake Baikal, the world's largest freshwater lake, is situated north of modern-day Mongolia, a location quite far east on the Eurasian continent. What is even more surprising is that the DNA of this individual is also found in many Native Americans, half a world away.

Different Types of Meditation Affect Different Parts of the Brain: A Little Something for Everyone

Many of us have been there: we've taken up meditation, followed the practice to the letter, but just couldn't get into the proper state, or didn't achieve any tangible benefits. It is, however, important to remember that each of us are different, with different minds, and thus may need a different practice to follow.

A Classic Humanoid Drawing



A Classic Humanoid Drawing

This illustration by the late Dr. Fernando Jiménez del Oso (distinguished author and publisher of Espacio y Tiempo and Enigmas) illustrates an article by Iker Jiménez and Lorenzo Fernández appearing in issue No.33 of the latter publication.

It depicts the August 25, 1979 event in Górliz, Vizcaya, in which two friends - women in their mid-30s - saw a creature suddenly appear out of the surrounding vegetation while they spent the night at a campground. The article places the entity's height at 1.20 meters (4 feet) and describes it as walking hunched over "like a monkey". Witnesses described its skin as dark, and its featureless face was taken up by a pair of eyes "some eight times the size of those on a human" and black hair. As if seeing one frightening figure wasn't enough, the women were treated to the sight of three similar creatures heading toward a hill. A highly luminous object subsequently apepared in on the hill's summit, lighting the area "as though it were daytime."

The last days of this month in 1979 also involved a number of CE-1 cases.

Marie Marvingt y la primera ambulancia aérea

Una nota de ayer publicada por @JoseM_SGP me hizo recordar cierta exposición de 2014 acerca de esta fascinante mujer y, sobre todo, me hizo pensar que, hace ahora cien años, ella se encontraba volando por los cielos europeos. ¿Qué mejor ocasión que recuperar este artículo que publiqué en 2009 acerca de la fascinante Marie Marvingt?


Hace poco visitó TecOb la chica halcón, Hélène Dutrieu. Hoy le toca el turno a una contemporánea cuyos méritos no desmerecen, ni de lejos, los de la aventurera del aire e inventora citada.

imgCiertamente, la vida de Marie Marvingt fue excepcional en todos sus aspectos. Viajemos en el tiempo para contemplar a una anciana en el día en que cumple ochenta años. Día 20 de febrero de 1955, una viejecita camina con decisión entre aviones, acompañada de pilotos y curiosos en la base aérea francesa de Toul-Rosières. La estampa es poco común, pero lo que sucederá a continuación será mucho más soprendente. La mujer, junto a un piloto de la U.S. Air Force, se acomoda a bordo de un interceptor supersónico con capacidad nuclear McDonnell F-101 Voodoo. Quien piense que se trata de una simple visita, se equivoca. No va a disfrutar de una simulación, ni tan siquiera pasará un rato en la cabina posterior “jugando” con los mandos. El caza hace rugir a plena potencia sus dos turbinas Pratt & Whitney, recorre la pista y despega. En efecto, una octogenaria ocupa, durante todo un vuelo, un puesto en la cabina de un avión de combate de la OTAN. ¿Qué grandes hazañas había logrado Marie para que le fuera concedido tal honor?

Ese mismo año, la anciana aprendió a volar en helicópteros, consiguiendo la correspondiente licencia de piloto que, por supuesto, no quedó olvidada en su cartera, bien se ocupó de emplear el documento activamente durante años hasta que, en 1963 y con 88 años de edad, abandonó este mundo. Desde entonces, en Francia es considerada como heroína nacional, siendo empleado su nombre para bautizar calles y edificios de todo tipo, entre otros honores. Marie Marvingt publicó varios libros, multitud de artículos, participó en películas y logró incontables premios aeronáuticos pero, sobre todo, es recordada por su tenacidad.

Veamos, siendo breves, habrá que recordar a una jovencita francesa, nacida en 1875, que destacó muy pronto por su habilidad deportiva, siendo capaz de destacar mundialmente en deportes acuáticos, carreras de caballos, atletismo, boxeo y artes marciales, además de en tenis, golf, fútbol, deportes de invierno. ¡Alto! ¿para qué continuar? La verdad es que la chica era algo así como una atleta incansable y polivalente, un portento pocas veces igualado. Por lo demás, poco antes de nacer el siglo XX, consiguió una licencia de conducción de automóviles y ya acumulaba tantos trofeos y medallas que apenas si quedaba espacio en una grande y abigarrada estantería para contenerlas. En la primera década de la nueva centuria sintió la llamada de las montañas y, así, se convirtió en la primera mujer en alcanzar muchos de los picos de los Alpes suizos y franceses. Sus hazañas eran glosadas apasionadamente por los periódicos de la época. En esa época era conocida como anfibio rojo, por el color de su bañador. A finales de esa década se convirtió en auténtica reina de los deportes de invierno y, también, en experta y condecorada tiradora, armada con su carabina era imbatible.

Poco a poco las máquinas fueron tomando un lugar especial en su corazón. En 1910 fue campeona mundial de Bobsleigh, mientras también destacaba en ciclismo, aunque en 1908 sufrió una grave decepción al serle prohibido participar en el Tour de Francia, pues únicamente podían participar hombres. Al poco tiempo, en diversas pruebas, pudo demostrar que podía competir contra cualquier hombre y, gracias a esta tenacidad, logró de la Academia de Deportes Francesa, en 1910, la medalla de oro “por todos los deportes”, algo completamente excepcional. Únicamente con pensar en todo esto uno ya se siente cansado, Marie demostraba tener tanta energía como decenas de personas no pueden desplegar en toda una vida y, sin embargo, solo era el principio.

Nuevamente, una máquina, fue capaz de enamorarla. Ya no era un automóvil, o una bicicleta, ni tan siquiera uno de sus queridos trineos. Desde que en 1901 ascendiera en globo por primera vez, no dejó de pilotar aerostatos, pero deseaba ir más allá. En 1909 probó algo que siempre quedaría en su memoria como el momento en que descubrió su mayor pasión: los aviones. Sus vuelos en globo, como el que realizó cruzando en Mar del Norte a bordo del Estrella Fugaz, temerarios y pioneros, poco podían compararse con su deseo de pilotar aviones. Es considerada como la primera mujer en pilotar en solitario un avión monoplano y, a finales de 1910, logró que le fuera concedida la tercera licencia mundial de piloto de avión que era concedida a una mujer. Su pericia tornó legendaria, a lo largo de casi un millar de vuelos fue capaz de aterrizar sin un solo contratiempo, y eso que no se limitó a vuelos de placer, pues participó en espectáculos peligrosos y competiciones arriesgadas, estableciendo diversas marcas mundiales.

Fue la Gran Guerra la que le impulsó a luchar por una idea en la que venía pensando desde 1912: la construcción de ambulancias aéreas. Luchó en la guerra, incluso en trincheras y en varios frentes. En 1915 se convirtió en la primera mujer en convertirse en piloto de combate, bombardeando territorio alemán, siendo condecorada por ello. He ahí el motivo por el cual, además de ser recordada como impulsora del uso de la aviación en labores sanitarias, se le otorgara el honor de volar a bordo de un caza supersónico al alcanzar la edad de ochenta años.

Terminada la Primera Guerra Mundial, Marie Marvingt trabajó como periodista, corresponsal de guerra y oficial médico en el norte de África, además de inventar, estando en Marruecos, un sistema de patines metálicos con los que facilitar aterrizajes de aviones sobre arena. Desde entonces, nunca se cansó de promocionar el uso de la aviación para fines médicos y sanitarios, siendo ipulsora de diversas organizaciones relacionadas con el diseño y uso de ambulancias aéreas, logrando en 1935 la primera licencia mundial como piloto paramédico. Y así, llegando a ser nombrada miembro de la Legión de Honor Francesa, cayó otro desastre para Europa. No por ello su energía había disminuido y, en medio de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, trabajó en un hospital para aviadores heridos e inventó un nuevo tipo de sutura quirúrgica. Sinceramente, me descubro ante ella, no creo que el tiempo de una vida pueda llenarse más, con tantas y tan buenas experiencias, inventiva y pasión.

Spain: A Giant Humanoid in Sangonera, Murcia (1979)



Spain: A Giant Humanoid in Sangonera (Murcia)
By Luis Jimenez Marhuenda
Contactos Extraterrestres, Vol. 2 No.7 (1979)

[The late Luis Jiménez Marhuenda was a distinguished radio personality, having begun his career in broadcasting in Equatorial Guinea (Africa). He went on to become a beloved figure in Spain's UFO and paranormal circles, and INEXPLICATA is pleased and honored to share one of his articles with our readers - SC]

"Look! Can you see that light? How weird!"
"Probably a car"
"A car on a mountaintop? With that kind of headlight?"
"Hail it with the motorcycle headlight!"


And so it was, half seriously, half in jest, that Antonio Guirao and his cousin Jose Carrillo, along with their friends Ginés and Jesús, held a sort of dialogue by means of luminous signals with a strange luminous object that had landed on the top of a summit in Sierra de Carrasco in the vicinity of Sangonera la Verde.
The boys had gone out that night to hunt for turtledove nests on two motorcycles. They stopped at Fuente del Perro at around midnight when at the top of a small hill (known as "el Cabezo Colorao") the sighted the strange luminous object.

Antonio pointed his motorcycle's headlight toward the summit and lit it up. Immediately, a powerful beam of light responded. Thus began an exchange of beams of light that lasted some three quarters of an hour.

The Game Ends in Panic

Antonio is 16. His cousin José is 14. To both of them, it was just a fun and exciting game. Their companions, Ginés and Jesús, also played a gleeful part. It was a warm evening in early July 1979 - an excellent night for an adventure - and that exchange of luminous signals was something uncanny for the boys, who were only vaguely aware of what the UFO phenomenon meant. But the adventure had only just started.

Excited by the strange luminous object, "about the size of a car", as they described it later, located at the summit of a wooded hill, and exchanging lights with it, made them forget everything else. Until the sound of crackling brush nearby alerted them to the presence of an intruder. They scanned the darkness for a few moments until the saw the outline of a tall figure standing over two and a half meters tall, clearly visible in the moonlight. Some dogs that accompanied them started barking in fear.

Frightened, the boys got onto their motorbikes and fled the scene. Their panic was such that when one of the motorcycles experienced a blowout, the passenger had to mount the other bike, which strained toward the town. The rider of the damaged bike chose to remain with his vehicle, well aware that he was damaging it further with every kilometer. With his tire shredded, he arrived in the town, and the time was around one o'clock in the morning.

Several local residents, seeing the boys' agitated state, decided to head out to the location in a couple of cars. Others chose to remain behind. One of them, Fernando Martinez, stated: "I decided to stay here. As soon as the cars departed, those of us who were present were able to see how that thing took off over the hill and after making a turn, shot off in the direction of Cartagena."

The cars and their occupants returned in disappointment. They hadn't been able to see a thing. However, there was now a series of witnesses who could attest to an extraordinary event. As of that moment, the matter became the province of researchers.

A True UFO Nest

Messrs. Jesús Sancho, Antonio Abaladejo and Dr. Martinez Brey traveled from Murcia to Sangonera to study the case "in situ" and speak to the witnesses. There is an extensive report on their visits to the site which we summarize below:

"The possible landing, with the physical presence of occupants, took place in the farm known as Torre Guil within the municipal boundaries of Sangonera. Mr. Pedro Uriza was kind enough to make a Land Rover available to us, driven by Felix, the company driver, who was also a witness to the boys' state of excitement and the damage experienced by the motorbike. We were thus able to reach the location. Mr. Prudencio Jimenez, a shepherd, lives in the vicinity. He too was a witness, years before, of another UFO sighting, precisely in the same area where the events played out.



"Expanding on this strange repetition of the events, I had the chance to speak to a worker at the farm, whose name I do not know. He formally assured me that in the wake of the event involving the youngsters, he has been able to see, in the company of fellow workers and always between 11:00 pm and midnight, how mysterious and powerful lights emerged from that location. After sudden maneuvers, and nearly directly above the witnesses, these objects proceeded to vanish abruptly without traces. In all cases, dogs displayed signs of nervousness and excitement."

Humanoid and Mechanical Prints Are Found

"Some strange prints can be found at the sighting location. The first were found on the access road to the hilltop. It was a print in the shape of a very large foot, with striated markings. The print had a length of 38 centimeters, equivalent to a commercially available shoe in the largest size manufactured, size 47 (13.5 in US measurements). Given the hardness of the soil, a print of this sort cannot be made with a view toward fakery. A meticulous outline, nearly worthy of a sculptor, would be required, using T-squares and triangles to mark the striations. Calculations made by a physics professor in at the Murcia high school estimates that in order to leave a print in this kind of soil, a weight of around 200 kilograms (440 lbs.) would be required.

"Shortly after, once we found ourselves at the place where the UFO was seen, another kind of ground impression was apparent: circular marks some 30 centimeters in diameter. Three of these were found, not equidistant between each other. We attribute these to the "pads" of the UFO. Given the landscape's irregular nature, it is clear that the prints could not be equidistant, since the point of support had to take into account a center of gravity. As an added detail, we must stress that these circular marks had a sort of central cleft measuring some 10 cm. long, suggesting an anti-skid mechanism. Subsequent analysis yielded no results about the provenance of these marks.



"As an added detail, we must make note once more of the panic displayed by the dogs belonging to the shepherd, Prudencio Jimenez. When the vehicles reached his house with the goal of confirming the boys' experience, the witnesses agreed that the animals, of a quite hostile disposition, were cowering under the cars in fear. It also emerged in subsequent interviews that Antonio, one of the youngsters, was able to see the enormous figure clearly. He was scared, but asked his cousin José to wait a little to see "what this guy has to say." But José did not have the slightest inclination to do so, and insisted that the leave at full speed."

The Researchers' Mindset

This concludes the report by the researchers. An extensive dialogue with them does nothing other than confirm a symptom that deserves study in of itself: the mindset of the researchers. Faced with a case that has plausible signs of being genuine, three separate objective stances can be seen to emerge, although all of them agree on the essential points: credibility of the witnesses, ascertainment of facts and the presence of ground imprints at the location.

Jesus Sancho, an old radio man, today a representative for a major liquor firm in the Murcia are, is an expert civil pilot and has a broad knowledge of the UFO subject. To him, the evidence found constitutes total proof. He speaks to the witnesses and draws out their human dimension. This is what he finds most convincing.

Antonio Abaladejo, an attorney, observes, studies and weighs possibilities as if trying to remain on the needle of the scale...the scales of the law which he deals with on a daily basis.

Doctor Martinez Rey considers that the diagnosis requires study. He agrees with his colleagues on the honesty of the witnesses and that "something indeed happened" there, but reserves his opinion with regard to the ground marks.

I know for a fact that these are three highly intelligent and absolutely honest people in their research, but as occurs with any researcher of the UFO phenomenon, they are unable to be absolutely objective about a case to the point of abstracting themselves from their own professional subjective outlook. This must be mentioned when dealing with the UFO phenomenon and must serve as a counterpoint when trying to engage in a general study of the entire phenomenon. It is evident that the UFO phenomenon will always have a subjective feature that it will never shake off. Each case studied shall be made publicly known not only as a function of the witnesses, but of its researchers as well, whose own focus is an inseparable feature.

A Credible Account

The Sangonera case has the kind of witnesses that I find fully credible: simple, humble country folk. They described the UFO as being shaped like "chapina" (seashell). It did not occur to them to liken it to a "flying saucer" or disk shaped objects. This is something new and unknown to them. The excitement of the moment could lead them to exaggerate, but never to lie, and much less to fantasize.

When a young man of humble origin, already working as a lemon harvester at the tender age of 16, allows his motorbike - his most treasured belonging - to be damaged by refusing to stop and fix a flat, leads us to consider the level of fright he must have experienced. The description of the strange being could have hardly emerged from a flight of fancy by the young men:

"It was wearing a sort of plastic raincoat, with a zipper and buttons, stripes on the chest. It was black or dark. And a sort of facemask or helmet on its head."

The extraterrestrial taxonomy is highly varied, and the prototype described by Antonio Guirao fits into some known cases. As to the repetition of cases in the same spot, we know that UFOs are repeaters. They are looking for something. There are iron mines in the vicinity of Sangonera, and they can also be found in Gallarta, where J.J. Benitez found a considerable number of prints in a slag pit. None of this is conclusive, of course. They have also been seen entering and leaving the sea.

Frustrated Communications

This case has left me with an odd impression. When the youngsters were frightened at the sight of a giant being in the darkness, it seems that they all took off running, jumped on their motorbikes and took off. But there's a significant aspect that I cannot overlook. Antonio Guirao says that he called to his cousin to ask him to wait, "to see what this guy has to say." This "guy" was the alleged alien. Was the boy boasting about not having felt the same level of fear as his cohorts? The way he said it does not suggest it. It sounds more like the creature seemed to be friendly, as the young man would confirm later on.

We cannot forget that prior to seeing the creature, the boys had been signaling the UFO, which answered in turn. What would have happened if Antonio had stayed behind? Can we not think that perhaps someone, a fellow Earthman, would have had sufficient presence of mind to hold back to see what the putative alien had to say? And if this is the case, what was dialogue between them?

It could be argued that such a case would end in abduction. But I do not think so. There is always a sort of paralysis in abductions, a mental blockage or submission to the will of the alien, a circumstance that did not arise here. If Antonio had stayed behind, he would have done so at his own will, out of sheer curiosity.

It is possible that someone has made it to this point. If so, it is likely that they may never want to discuss it. For this reason we remain bewildered, wondering what it is "they" are thinking.

Perhaps Antonio Guirao, the 16-year-old farmhand was on the verge of finding out. What can we think about these circumstances? To answer this question, I shall avail myself of the words of Jesus Sancho in his report: "The UFO allowed itself to be seen, and even signaled back, responding to the luminous signals made by the boys. Since they weren't going away - the moon was very bright - a ufonaut departed the craft to visit the kids. But this was too much for their nerves."
