Mexico: Strange Object Flies Over Volcano Crater

Mysterious object captured near the Popocatepetl Volcano
Luminous object flies over the Popocatépetl crater; some think it could be a UFO.


A video was shared via Twitter showing a luminous object passing over the Popocatépetl Volcano's crater.

The video - 27 seconds long - shows the strange object passing very near the volcano at high speed.

The images were taken on May 14 and have been disseminated via Twitter, causing astonishment and expectation.

Some believe it could be a UFO, and remarks about earlier sightings have been made on social media.

Popocatépetl is active, and the volcanic eruption marker is currently at Phase 2 - Yellow given the outgassing of water and ash.

Argentina: A New UFO Sighting Along the Tin-Tin "Straight Segment"

The photo was taken only days ago by a couple from the Province of Buenos Aires who had decided to visit some locations around Salta and pay a visit to Cachi. When they saw some of their photos, they couldn't believe it.

It is an establish fact that many Argentineans choose to visit the country's northern regions for relaxation. Those who visit Salta often choose to tour the Valles Calchaquíes, particularly Cachi and Cafayate.

And this was precisely what Franco and Lucrecia - a couple from Buenos Aires - decided to do, renting a car and spending the weekend in Cachi, according to what they told us. Obviously, faced with such striking vistas, they took photographs as they drove.

Some of the photos were taken in the famous Recta del Tin Tin (Tin Tin Straight Segment) before reaching Cachi, where the skies, almost always clear, allow for good photography.

As they explained, they unloaded their photos from their cellphone to the computer. Some are uploaded to social media and others are kept as souvenirs. But what they saw that evening in their hotel room was stunning.



According to their testimony, it wasn't there when they looked, but the photograph clearly shows a UFO in the sky. They cannot say what it was, but there was something there.

They began researching immediately and learned that it was an area where other sightings have taken place. They also learned from local residents in Cachi that there are many stories, anecdotes and legends in this regard.

So that's why they decided to share these photos with us. As is customary in these cases, it's a matter of "believe or bust."

Argentina: UFO Tails Mirage Fighter.




Contributing editor Guillermo Giménez has provided us with the following image: "A very good photo of an Argentinean Air Force Mirage fighter being escorted by a UFO. The photo was taken at the Villa Reynolds Airbase, in San Luis, at 1800 hours. The fighter pilot was able to see the strange object. The photo was taken by Captain Sergio Figueroa and subjected to an exhaustive analysis by the military, ascertaining the flying object's veracity and discarding the likelihood of any conventional phenomenon and/or technical error. The reality of UFOs over our skies is undeniable. This photo appears as the cover to the book "Encuentros entre Pilotos y OVNIS en Argentina" by researcher Carlos Ferguson."

Argentina: Video Confirms UFO Presence in Northern Salta? (VIDEO)

Following the dissemination of a photograph taken at Parque Bicentenario showing an object with lights in the sky, InformateSalta has received a video that will leave you stunned. Watch it.

Speechless. For those who enjoy or believe in the presence of unidentified flying objects, and for those who don't, this video will surely leave you impressed after you've seen it.

It was recorded not by an amateur, but by an expert, last week as he drove along Avenida Bolivia near Parque Bicentenario, where a photo of 'something in the sky' was also taken.

Upon seeing the video, you might think at first that it could be a drone, for example, but the speed at which this UFO disappears casts doubt on this possibility.

It was recorded in broad daylight around 14:30 hours while cameraman Teto Rosas and editor Marcelo Ruiz of Salta's Canal 11 were aboard a vehicle.

Don't forget to watch it. You'll be surprised.

Argentina: Comodoro Rivadavia Resident Reportedly Records Highway UFO

The images recorded with a cellphone were shared on social media. "I never thought I'd go through something like this."

ESQUEL (ADNSUR) - A man living in Comodoro Rivadavia published - on Facebook - a video showing a strange white light as he drove toward the city of Esquel in his car.

On Friday, 19 April, Gustavo Fabián Zárate shared the cellphone video that shows an incandescent white light amid the darkness of the road.

"Look, it's a matter of believe or bust. The kids are speechless. Look at this thing, it's impressive," says the man on the video, which has already made the rounds of social media.

The video was further shared in some Facebook groups, where some users questioned the video's authenticity, saying that it looked like a light reflection or some kind of editing process.

Others stated: "Yes, there was something there. It happened to us that several cars, including the bus on which I was a passenger, stopped in the darkness. I heard a man said there were UFOs about," wrote Sole Quinta.

"Do you think it's real?" asks the article.

The striking sighting occurred on Wednesday morning in a locality of the district of La Matanza (Buenos Aires)

Alejandro Caminada, a resident of the district of La Matanza, claims having recorded a 'flying saucer' on his cellphone.

The man, a resident of Laferre, told Cronica.com.ar. that the recorded object came from another planet.

"I saw it with a friend. We were at his house. It was he who alerted me to the presence of a strange, pipe-shaped object in the sky," he said.

Caminada was startled by the unconventional shape of the object and remarked: "It crossed the sky in a very distinctive manner. It was elongated, tube-shaped, made no noise and spun quickly."

In the end, Fernando declared: "I began recording it and it vanished from one minute to the next. I never saw anything like it in the area."

Spain: Pilots Report a UFO "The Size of an Island" (1997)

Spain: Pilots Report a UFO "The Size of an Island"

The strange event was attested by two airplanes passing over the Spanish city of Vigo from America on their way to Madrid.

Two airline pilots at the helm of separate commercial flights plowing the North America to Madrid rout certified having seen a UFO at an altitude of 9000 having a tremendous size, perhaps the largest ever seen, as they flew over the Galician coast facing Vigo. This was the testimony of one of the pilots - Juan Reyes - on the Cuarto Milenio television program last Sunday as show host Iker Jimenez looked in in astonishment.

The event took place one night in March 1997 and we have knowledge of it thanks to the written report made before the aerial navigation authorities. The protagonist indicated, however, that "the matter remains under investigation and therefore closed to the public."



The pilot of the Air Europa airline explained the he was flying from New York and that as he passed the Galician coastline, some 90 kilometers, but in a straight line, the crew was able to see a gigantic structure with lights in a position where there should be nothing but sea.

It could not be land or a ship, given its size, which the commander compared with his native island of Grand Canaria. It seemed to him like a platform with two very powerful lights at its center, illuminating the entire unidentified flying object. They notified the Madrid Tower and air traffic control, in turn, requested confirmation to ratify or deny the sighting from a flight inbound from Canada, which was ten seconds behind in the air corridor for safety reasons. And so it was: the pilot of the second aircraft confirmed the sighting of his colleague, and also left a written report. Nothing further has been known about the investigation, which is surprising when the size and location of the structure is considered, and in spite of the 22 years that have elapsed since the event.

Ecuador: Alleged UFO Seen over Lago San Pablo

OTAVALO - A light floating over the surface of Lake San Pablo caught the attention of Anabel Godoy, an Argentinean national, and Reto Schnyder, a Swiss, in the morning hours of Friday, 5 April [2019].
According to both foreigners,who own Samay Toa, a tourist haven located in Araque Alto, it was a UFO phenomenon. According to local residents, this would not be the first time such a phenomenon has been recorded.

"The fact is that my entire family was stunned. It was out of the ordinar. We had never seen a manifestation of that sort in the lake," said Godoy.

The phenomenon occurred at 06:15 last Friday morning.



"We were getting ready to start the day. My husband was making coffee and was the first to see the phenomenon through the bedroom window," Godoy recalled.

The event impressed Schyder, who has been living in Araque for seven years now.


"It was a bright light. My wife, using some binoculars, was able to see that there was no object above the light or on the surface of the lake. It was a light [whose color] was between yellow and orange," he said.

Schnyder says that when he saw the the object the first time, he was some 40 meters from the Araque Water Park on his way to Cachiviro, a trip that takes between 10 and 15 minutes.
Local residents are used to discussing these phenomena. "On several occasions we've seen spherical lights in the sky emerging from Lomakunga," recalls Maria Yacelga, a resident of the community.
For both foreigners, this was the second time they have witnessed phenomena of this sort. The first was at night, when some spherical lights flew over the property they occupy.

Colombia: Family Claims Having Witnessed UFO at Tatacoa

The events referred to here occurred last Sunday two kilometers past the observatory.

A visit to the Tatacoa Desert turned into a unique experience for members of the Colorado Acuña family after they saw what in their judgement was a UFO.

According Marcela Acuña López, the event that has shaken the family took place after five o'clock in the afternoon after they returned to Neiva from spending a long day with her brother.

Marcela says that as her sister-in-law took a photo of the desert sunset from the moving vehicle, the camera picked up what she and her sister-in-law believe to be a UFO (unidentified flying object).

The image provided by Marcela Acuña clearly shows how a strange element swiftly crosses the horizon, seemingly propelled by two turbines.

The family has stated their intention to contact experts in the subject in order to provide them with the photos, so that they can determine whether it was a UFO or not.

The subject of UFOs is considered taboo by the scientific community, despite evidence showing that a small percentage of sightings display advanced technology. There is the need for open, evidence-based scientific investigation, rather than based on expectation or prior belief.

Mexico: UFOs a Persistent Presence in Southern Baja California

An article by Gilberto Ortega Avilés


Mexico: UFOs a Persistent Presence in Southern Baja California

A strange green light was seen falling very close to the city on April 3rd; there were numerous witnesses.

A series of strange sightings that coincided with blackouts throughout the state in September of las year caught the attention the national media, which linked it to frequent UFO encounters in Tijuana.

It seemed that these sightings over our peninsula had ceased. However, researcher Martín Alonso Nuñez, who constantly investigates and seeks out this phenomenon, managed to obtained evidence in January of this year, having recorded an unidentified flying object over the city of La Paz.

The Baja California peninsula appears to be a magnet not only for domestic and international tourism. Judging by the number of sightings, it would seem that intergalactic tourism is a factor as well.

In 1990, several families of the Alvaro Obregón ejido (communal land farm), located some 30 kilometers from the city of La Paz, claimed to have witnessed the ascent and descent of strange and unknown objects all night and into the early morning hours. The witnesses told the Diario Ultimas Noticias newspaper that that on July 6, 1999, the noise coming from the hill was deafening, and that they had never seen anything like it. It made them nervous and concerned.

The Castro Valdez and Albañez Díaz families told the press that the noise emanating from the hill was completely unknown, but resembled that of a jet or hundreds of motorcycles.

They pointed at the hill, saying that a very bright light emanated from it, looking as if hundreds of photographs were being taken at that location.

On the next day, they visited the site and found evidence that a large object had fallen there, as ground marks were in evidence. Furthermore, the entire area was burned, giving off a strange odor they could not readily identify.

Some youths claimed having visited the hill that very same night, and had found many people with scientific equipment and cameras, analyzing and photographing the marks left behind by the UFO. They couldn't identify the people, saying only that they were foreign-looking.

UFOs were also seen over the following days toward Los Barriles and the city of La Paz, and there were witnesses to these events.

A year earlier, in 1989, an impressive and by no means isolated case occurred involving a native of the state of Michoacán, who claimed having had a less-than-pleasant encounter with space beings.

Other events were reported in Ciudad Constitución. The police statement taken on the events in Benito Juarez, near Ciudad Constitución, read as follows: "Mister Silvestre Rodriguez Garcia said in his own words that he had injured himself in a moment of nervousness, as his family is disappearing, because some extraterrestrials have an invisible device with which they make people disappear. Out of all my family, I'm the only one left."

This person was committed to a mental health facility and nothing further was ever heard of the case, which was left to the imagination and consideration of the public at large.

Los Cabos also has a considerable number of UFO sightings every year. In the '90s, these increased in an incredible manner, with hundreds of witnesses, appearing in several newspapers, such as the one dated January 16, 1993, when many strange lights were seen flying in the city's periphery, particularly in the "El Zacatal" district, where they were seen by many. According to an anonymous witness: "We used to sleep outdoors back then, and we had the chance to see those lovely lights traveling at impressive speed toward the hill."

Bolivia: Cattleman and Ranch Hands Insist on UFO Presence Over Property


Notivision reached the ranch in Guarayos to hear the story of the cattleman and his ranch hands about this sighting.

SANTA CRUZ, BOLIVIA - The sighting of at least 20 'unidentified flying objects' over a cattle farm located in the municipality of Guarayos has been become a source of concern for the past six months for the owner of this property, as well as for the ranch hands who work at the location.

Notivisión traveled to Freddy Rodríguez's farm, located 27 kilometers into the municipality. The cattleman welcomed the journalistic team at his location and said that at night, over the past six months, he has seen - from his home - how these alleged UFOs descend from the sky to the paddock, shining light over the cattle (emphasis in the original - SC)

Surveying the property on Thursday night, Freddy remarked that the presence of this phenomenon causes the cattle to panic, stampeding and causing damage to the paddock and wire fencing.

"At one o'clock in the morning, as we were going to bed, [a UFO] appeared behind the pickup truck. My ranch hand said, "Don Freddy, there's the 'drone'." Since it lit up the road like an automobile, I thought it must be the party controlling the drones. But when we saw it, I grabbed the shotgun, told my ranch hand to fire, and he fired. The UFO went away, but when I turned the pickup truck around, we could see it up close and it lit up our faces," he said.

One of the workers manifested the fear the event had caused him, as it was the first time he had seen the manner in which these objects visit the ranch, light it up, and then fly off.

Another ranch hand said that it is normal to see how the objects nearly touch the ground, go from paddock to paddock terrifying the cattle, and then take off to parts unknown.

Bolivia: Concern in Guarayos Over UFOs in the Sky

Cattleman states unidentified flying objects have been seen over his property.

The story broadcast by some television stations regarding an alleged sighting of luminous objects over a cattle ranch caused alarm and curiosity in more than one resident of Guarayos.

Some have traveled to this location at night to see if the luminous objects will reappear in the sky yet again. There are those who believe these are spaceships from another world, visiting the Earth; others say they are divine signs aimed a humanity.

Disbelievers say these are mere fantasies and exaggerations. All started as a result of a statement made by cattleman Freddy Rodriguez, who indicated that luminous objects in the sky have been seen for some time now - sometimes very low to the ground, or high up, he says - over his ranch, Los Tres Cerritos, located 20 kilometers from Asención.

Rodriguez - whose sighting was corroborated by several of his workers - said he saw one [object] at first, but their numbers increased over the course of the following nights, frightening the cattle.

Un ‘planeta’ moribundo sobrevive a la destrucción de su estrella

En el disco de escombros que ha quedado tras la explosión de una estrella, convertida ahora en una pequeña enana blanca, ha permanecido el resto de un antiguo planeta. Este planetesimal orbita dentro de lo que fue el radio original de su ‘sol’ y seguramente ha perdurado gracias a su riqueza en metales pesados, como el hierro y el níquel.

Chile: Report on a Chupacabras Encounter
From the Files of Raul Gajardo Lepold, Researcher

First Case

Angol, 11.26.2006

IEA(*) Eyewitness Account

[(*) IEA stands for Intruso Esporádico Agresivo - Sporadic Aggressive Intruder, an acronym used in South America to designate the paranormal predator known more commonly as the Chupacabras]

FROM Pablo Andres Diaz Caceres, 28, married, graphic designer, residing at 414 Las Violetas, Graneros.

"In the year 2003, while at a cookout with Mr. RAFAEL MORENO, general anesthesiologist of the region in the locality of Las Cabras, 6th Region of Chile, on the shores of Lake Rapel, he told me that while exercising his profession in [the city] of Copiapó in 1998, one of his fellow doctors, who was affiliated with the Army, told him that he had examined the corpse of an Army conscript who had died during maneuvers as the consequence of hand grenade explosion. The autopsy, however, revealed that this was not the cause of the soldier's death. Rather, it had come about from serious cutting and piercing wounds and tears caused by the claws of a wild animal. He was badly mauled. It was said he had encountered a warren of these creatures (IEA) in a cave near Copiapó, in a place dubbed Fosforita, where a group of these creatures was nesting. The Army ordered a platoon to enter the cave, where the conscript was attached by these animals, dying instantly. Next, these animals were gunned down and their corpses subsequently delivered to representatives of the U.S. government and shipped away in unmarked helicopters.

"In the year 1999, while on missionary activity as an elder for the Church of Latter Day Saints in the city of Tal-Tal, he had the chance to speak to the aforementioned Army physician, Doctor Moreno's friend - he did not remember the man's name or physical description - who told him "that he had seen strange things, the body of a conscript slain by an animal attack. The wounds were not the result of any weapon." This doctor was very discreet. The information stayed in his memory until he subsequently ran into Dr. MORENO at Las Cabras. The case was one and the same.


"In May 2000, JOSE MIGUEL SANHUEZA, also a graphic design student, was on the verge of finishing his time in the army as a reserve corporal, commando and parachutist for one of the Regiments in the locality of Colina. He awakened by the sound of gunfire. A lieutenant and two sentries doing their rounds were set upon by a non-descript shape against which they opened fire when it refused to answer their challenges. It was an animal capable of leaping quickly from one place to another, and none of their bullets struck true, although impact was made against a backhoe, which the witness did see during the daytime. The animal moved swiftly through the scrub vegetation while the troops exhausted their ammo firing against it. The creature was seemingly unharmed, as no tracks or traces of blood were found."

Second Case

Angol, 07.04. 2005

I am interviewing Mr. JOSE CEA BENAVIDES, 54, married, middle school graduate, forestry technician, residing at Colo-Colo 1341, who states the following:

"Between 1980 and 1985 I worked at Fundo Los Aples 3 in the Nahuelbuta Mountains engaged in forestry development. I pursued the same activity from 1986 to 88 in Fundo Tranicura, Alboyanco Sector; 1989-93 at Fundo Estados Unidos between Traiguén and Purén; 1994-96 at Fundo Pangal and Pan de Azúcar; 1999 at Fundo Las Acequias and 2000-2004 employed by Ahuile and Co. My reason for stating all this is to point out that I have worked for many years in timber extraction and I know all the wild animals that exist in the vicinity of Angol.

"However, on Monday, September 20, 2004, during the fading hours of the afternoon, shortly after sunset, I was returning alone from visiting some properties of mine in the Deuco Sector, some 6 kilometers SW of Angol, driving in my pickup. Some 500 meters before reaching the junction with the road linking Angol to Los Sauces, I pulled over at the edge of the dirt track, beside a yellow iron gate on the right side of the road, in order to urinate.

"Having completed this act, standing on the front right side of the vehicle, I realized that a very strange animal was heading my way from a distance of some 30 meters. I shall describe it later. I started walking around the pickup, along its rear, and later decided to walk toward that animal, which had progressed some 10 meters from where I stood. Seeing my movements, it stopped and went back "SIDEWAYS" without turning its back until it reached a pine tree, facing me, NEVER TAKING ITS EYES off me.

"At that moment I boarded the pickup and returned to Angol.

"At no time did the animal - or whatever it was - make a show of aggression toward me. Rather, it was friendly but shy. To tell the truth, it didn't frighten me at all.

"What was strange was its shape: I figured it to have a height of 1.5 meters, solidly built, seemingly very strong, sturdy, with a body completely covered in black or dark fur, about a geme long (geme- unit of measure designating the distance from the outstretched thumb and forefinger of a hand). It stood erect. Its arms were short and kept them always to its torso. Legs were strong and straight. I never saw it flex its knees. Its back was straight despite the erect gait. The head was smaller in proportion to the body: it had two ears, erect and pointed like those of a horse. It had a trunk or slender muzzle measuring some 10 to 15 centimeters long. I couldn't make out any eyes, possibly due to the hairiness of its head, nor could I see a nose below the aforementioned protuberance. Its shoulders were normal, like those of a man. Short neck. I couldn't make out fingers on its hands or toes on its feet. I think it could be mistaken for a slender-headed bear. The short arms were gathered over its abdomen.

"I was able to see it clearly thanks to the light, its proximity, and because the terrain is scraggy, with scattered pines and a lack of scrub vegetation. What struck me was its erect gait. Another strange thing was that when it walked sideways toward the pine, some 10 meters distance, the ground under its feet RESONATED, as though its footsteps REVERBERATED, showing it was quite heavy. The ground was dry.

"My footsteps could not be heard. Due to its corpulence I think the animal weighed many kilos. I cannot find another explanation.

"The animal remained beside the pine tree; I boarded my pickup truck, and returned home to Angol."

Chile: 100,000 Witnesses to a UFO Sighting? (1982)

Thousands witnessed a flashing UFO in the city of Arica in Northern Chile. The sighting began after midnight on the 11th of October and lasted a little over three hours. During this time period, the news spread throughout the city and people turned out to the street to watch the impressive object at ease. It has been estimated that nearly 100,000 people witnessed the strange heavenly display.

Questioned by newspaper reporters, witnesses agreed that the UFO was "an object that gave off intermittent, irregular flashes in different directions, and at various speeds." Some Chilean journalists were able to see the UFO for themselves through astronomical equipment, saying that "a large luminous core surrounded by an oval-shaped capsule, sky blue in color, could be clearly made out, very similar to a transparent membrane, and with three concentric black circles."

No official reaction has been made known to this moment, but the control tower at the Chacalluta International Airport reported: "It was a strange phenomenon with no explanation whatsoever." It was also made clear that no aircraft were flying in the skies over Arica, nor was there any awareness of a weather balloon having been launched."

There are reports that the phenomenon was also seen throughout the entire region of Azapa and Lluta in the Chilean altiplano and Pre-Cordilleran region.

Argentina: A Big Footprint - The Ucumar Zupai?



Source: www.eltribuno.com and PLANETA UFO
Date: 26 March 2019
Article by Ivana Castillo


Argentina: A Big Footprint - The Ucumar Zupai?

The print measures 15 centimeters wide and 25 long, in a humanoid shape. The locals claim strange noises can be heard and that farm animals are disappearing.

Weeks ago, an image went viral that clearly showed a gigantic footprint.

The photo was taken by the owner of the farm located in Ovando. No one knows to which species it might belong.

Appearance of the tracks coincided with stories told by local residents, who claim having heard strange noises in the dark of the night.

The fact is that after the image went viral, the possibility that it could the ever-present Ucumar (a South American Bigfoot) emerged once again. This is not the first time that rumors of this "humanoid" have circulated in the Thermal City, as it generally appears in the same places and areas.

The farm on which these tracks were found is called Don Rosa and is located between the San Martin and Ovando districts, some 300 meters from the river. "A few weeks ago we found that some animals were missing from their pens and we went looking for them in the wilderness. It had rained days before, and there were still several puddles along the trail. Then, as we walked we realized there were some tracks that were not normal, but didn't pay them much mind, and kept going. We found the same tracks again and I took some photos of them," said Nelson Colque, the farm's owner, to El Tribuno.

"But what struck us was the size of the track. It measured between 12 and 15 centimeters wide and some 25 to 30 centimeters long. By its proportions, it truly isn't a normal track," Colque noted.



He also recalled that "the night before the tracks appeared, we were intrigued by the wailing of the dogs. The barked and keened disconsolately. We thought robbers might be afoot and the gamekeeper fired some shots into the air. After firing, the dogs calmed down immediately. What's odd is that whenever people are around, the dogs generally bark but don't wail."

The young man recalled: "This had also happened in a friends farm, adjacent to my own, where the dogs wailed and that's very odd. Some animals were lost last year, but we never found out whether thieves were stealing them or what. The strangest thing was to find an animal torn to pieces. Thieves don't tear animals to pieces; predators do. But we have no clue as to what species the predator belongs to."

"The mutilated pig in question was a large one, and that's why we were always in doubt, since [that property] doesn't have large dogs and it's impossible for foxes to mutilate an animal weighing more than 20 kilos (44 lb.) in such a way," Colque explained.

He also said that there are no pumas or other wild animals in the area to which such a large track could be associated.

The Legend of the Ucumar

Historian, writer and poet Carlos Jesús Maita told El Tribuno who the Ucumar is according to legend.

"It is a traditional legend of Northwestern Argentina. Here in Rosario de la Frontera it came about as a result of popular gullibility and superstition. There are those who claim having seen this mythic, legendary figure. The creature is a sort of human-animal hybrid, a mixture of bear, man and ape," Maita described.

As to its origins, the historian said: [The Ucumar] came about as a consequence of sexual relations between godfathers and godmothers, or between the landlord and one of his maids, in which the child was hidden in a jungle or forest. It wound up living in the woods, and that's how such a humanoid came about."

Another superstition-laden story suggests: "The Ucumar is a creature that lives in forested areas and heads toward populated areas to steal a woman to guarantee his genetic succession."

Regarding its appearance, Maita pointed out that "there are different descriptions of its physiognomy. Some say it's robust, hairy and comes in different sizes. This has to do with the fact that in these areas, and more toward the region of Yungas, there is a bear known as the Ukumari, a nearly extinct species, but which had given rise to this sort of superstition years ago, as its physiognomy, seeing through the fog, could cause confusion. This gave rise to its interpretation as something supernatural."

The historian noted: "Stories have been woven around the Ucumar. Perhaps there was a rape, or animal theft - especially pigs - a slaying of dogs, among others. The popular imagination had already determined that the culprit could be humanoid."

Venezuela: Alleged UFO Sighting in Barquisimeto Causes Social Media Stir

Twitter users reported the sighting of a UFO in the Barquisimeto region.

The appearance of a UFO in Barquismeto triggered a social media debate. Videos disseminated by an account in the state of Lara show a red object that remains motionless in the sky.

According to eyewitness accounts from some citizens, the flying object remained in the sky for some minutes before "disappearing."

The debate on social media erupted between those who claim the object is a UFO and those who think it is a flare or something similar.

Venezuela: Luminous, Elongated UFO over La Puerta

Venezuela: Luminous, Elongated UFO over La Puerta

CARACAS - March 22, 2019. An unidentified flying object of considerable dimensions, elongated and luminous, was photographed by a young man from Zulia at the La Puerta sector, Municipality of Valera, State of Trujillo, after 5:00 o'clock in the afternoon on Saturday, February 16.

According to the story told by Friman Rodriguez, the event occurred as he and his cousin drove in a vehicle along the Pan American Highway, also known as Troncal 1, which links the southern reaches of the state of Zulia with the states of Mérida and Trujillo.

When interviewed by journalist Hector Escalante, he said that they were driving from Cabimas to the neighboring state that day with the intention of staying, but after discovering that the power supply was failing and there was a blackout in the area, they chose to return.

He said that upon returning home, he noticed a light in the sky some distance away that intrigued him. "I didn't pay much attention at first, thinking it was a reflection of the sun, but suddenly I realized that the sun was to the left, and much farther below."

Immediately, adds the witness, "the light began moving in a zig-zag fashion," which prompted them to take out their cellphones to document the scene. "I called to my cousin, who was asleep, and said: 'start recording!' he began recording while I took the photos."

After having moved, the artifact was completely exposed. It descended somewhat and hung over some scrub vegetation, but finding it impossible to remain immobile for much longer, he said, and they were forced to keep driving, losing it from sight.



Rodríguez pointed out that while they were not far from the place where the UFO apparently landed, he preferred not to approach it. "I was happy to have recorded it and kept going. I wasn't too sure about going back and looking at something that could have an uncertain outcome."

According to the witness, everything appeared to be normal around him, except for the temperature: "It was excessively hot that day, and one leaves Zulia for La Puerta to catch some fresh air (...). What was I going to do in Trujillo with that heat, and moreover without light? That's why I returned."

His cousin experienced a similar complaint. Despite having slept for many hours, he found it necessary to go to a doctor due to a painful headache, explained the teenager, who dismissed the likelihood that the journey had caused the malady. "We were traveling in a new, very comfortable pickup truck."

Friman doesn't feel special, but he does feel fortunate. He states that while it’s the first time that he has seen an event of this nature, it is not foreign to him, much less unknown, as his father also claims having seen very similar artifacts on two separate occasions.

The characteristics of the site also provide food for thought. La Puerta is a tourist community in the Venezuelan Andes that covers several rivers and mountains in its eighty-four square kilometer surface, that is to say, water and vegetation, two elements that are always present in most Venezuelan UFO sightings.

Yet perhaps the most critical factor is the coincidence of the phenomenon's appearance with the interruption of the electric service, given that there are similar cases documented - even recent ones, like the one in La Lorena, State of Bolivar, where witnesses observed unusual light displays and subsequently found strange impressions on the ground.

Los platillos volantes de Guido Tallei

El 24 de junio de 1947 el piloto Kenneth Arnold, de Boise (Idaho, Estados Unidos), vio nueve extraños objetos “saltando en el aire como platos sobre el agua”, cuando volaba con su avioneta cerca del Monte Rainier, estado de Washington. Tiempo después un periodista, tras escuchar la narración de Kenneth, publicó un artículo en el que mencionaba que el piloto había visto “platillos volantes”, término erróneo que se convirtió en el símbolo de toda una época. No tengo ni idea de qué pudo ver Arnold aquél día, pero ciertamente hubo diseñadores aeronáuticos tiempo antes que sí soñaron con verdaderos “platillos” voladores. Uno de esos soñadores fue el ingeniero italiano Guido Tallei.

Guido imaginaba un futuro en el que naves híbridas, a medio camino entre el dirigible y el avión convencional, iban a surcar los cielos. Sus diseños discoidales, que no llegaron a materializarse en modelos reales, encontraron eco en algunas publicaciones de principios de los años treinta. He aquí, por ejemplo, la portada de la revista Popular Mechanics de septiembre de 1930, cuyo protagonista era uno de los diseños de Guido Tallei.

En la siguiente imagen puede verse una de sus maquetas y dos ilustraciones de concepto. En este caso la idea consistía en una nave-hidroavión (podía flotar como un barco), que volaba gracias a un ala giratoria llena de gas (hidrógeno o helio), o bien aire caliente.

Tal como se narraba en la revista Algo, edición del 12 de marzo de 1932:

…se trata de un nuevo modelo de aparato volador que es una mezcla de dirigible, aeroplano y giróscopo. El cuerpo principal del aparato es un globo de forma achatada, lleno de gas, que unas máquinas neumáticas hacen girar aumentando sus condiciones de flotabilidad en el aire y su poder de elevación. Las hélices propulsoras son también de forma muy original. (…) En vez de palas, tienen discos que, además de girar alrededor del centro de la hélice, dan vueltas sobre su propio eje. El inventor afirma que su aparato es el más seguro de los construidos hasta el día, ya que se mantiene en el aire como un dirigible, alcanzando en cambio velocidades de aviones más ligeros. Además (…) gracias a su forma y al emplazamiento de las hélices, puede navegar.

También en marzo de 1932 la revista Popular Mechanics publicó nuevas noticias sobre esta invención, de la que vemos a continuación algunas muestras.

Argentina: "A Curious Photo, and a Great Coincidence"


Luis Burgos writes: At 21:37 last night, Tuesday 19 March, our friends of the CIFA Group in the Andean community of El Bolsón recorded a curious green object to one side of the moon. Then, at 21:50 hours, that is to say, 20 mintues later, Serjio Juárez of FAO photographed the moon on the outskirts of La Plata and another green object - or the same one - 'appeared', photographed nearly 1000 kilometers distant in a straight line. La Plata and El Bolsón joined by the same intruder. It looks like a lens flare, but was seen in the south."

Argentina: A "Bigfoot" Reported in San Luis?

By Avances Newsroom - A "Gorilla" On The Loose in San Luis?


Argentina: A "Bigfoot" Reported in San Luis?

A situation has been causing concern in the community of Quines, located in northern San Luis. The environmental police appears to be seeking a "gorilla" in the Banda Este region, a rather rural location full of chacras (small ranches).

According to El Diario de La República newspaper, the animal appeared two days ago prowling around the chacras. They do not know if it is some kind of ape or where it comes from. "We don't know what it is, but we have found footprints similar to those made by that animal," said the officer in charge of the operation, the sherrif and Marcelo Díaz, director of Environmental Police Unit No.5

The policeman remarked that the initial appearance took place at night around 22:00 hours in a small tambo (cattle farm). As reported on this site, a man stepped out to his yard when he saw a shape measuring 1.80 meters, approximately, that was black in color and leaped over two wire fences without touching them.

Something similar this Monday night. A witness claimed seeing the creature some 200 meters distant at a chacra. "He described it as a black shape heading toward the wilderness, calmly. It walked and stopped now and then," he explained.

Diaz explained that footprints were found in a flat area and in the wilderness. "They are similar to a human foot, but given their considerable size, we are discarding the likelihood of a person being involved," said the officer in charge of the operation.

The fact remains that this alleged apparition mobilized 10 officers and 5 rural guides in search of the mysterious creature in the wilderness. Diaz added that no one in the town knows anything about it, and no one has had an animal of such size in captivity.

A new effort aimed at finding the "gorilla" will take place today at 22:30 hours.

Experts believe the appearance of a primate of that nature to be unlikely. "There isn't much information on the physical aspect. Some say it has a tail. The showed us tracks, but they do not look like those of a gorilla or chimpanzee," said Nicolas Bistolfi, a member of the Flora and Fauna Section of the Ministry of the Environment.

"It is unlikely that a gorilla is involved. Perhaps it could be a Carayá monkey from the north. It isn't the most common, but it could be a Latin American monkey of some sorts. But these animals measure less than a meter tall." He explained the difference with the one sighted, which stands at 1.80 meters.

Those in charge of monitoring provincial flora and fauna believe that if a monkey is involved, it has been brought illegally to the province. Ownership of such specimens is forbidden.

This even led to some presidents in office at the time such as Juan Carlos Onganía in 1966, President Ilía in the early 1960s to mobilize – through the Ministry of Defense – deployments aimed at the detection of this phenomenon, which they considered to be intruder submarines, while it was subsequently ascertained that they bore no relation whatsoever with any submarine, neither friendly nor hostile, that is to say, from abroad.

Interviewer: Listen, what hopes do you have with regard to this phenomenon? Should we continue making observations, because the Earth is too polluted, and they’ve come to take us to other worlds. What’s your idea about researching this? What’s your motivation to study this, and place so much faith in this regard?

Burgos: Well, on the whole, a researcher looks into what other people have seen. Today, many researchers have been lucky to witness a UFO phenomenon with their own eyes. I went from the year 1969 to 1979 without ever seeing a UFO, ten years of looking to the subject without having seen a thing, and from 1979 to this day I’ve witnessed UFO phenomena on eight different occasions thanks to the night watches we organize, our nocturnal field research, when we set out to find out a case in which the phenomenon has been occurring. We have no aim in particular, we are not contactees, nor do we receive messages. It just so happened that we were able to witness this UFO phenomenon, right? I’ve always said that if UFOs did not exist, why then have I come across, over the past fifty years, with so many government agencies? In other words, we have been investigating the same case alongside the police, aeronautical police, the air force, the gendarmerie, the prefecture, in the same field in a given province in Argentina, that is to say, the two of us engaging in the same research, the difference being that the government agency does not make its results public and we are the first to do so. In other words, if this phenomenon did not exist, I can’t imagine why we’ve crossed paths with these people so often.

Interviewer: So they can’t admit it?

Burgos: Of course, they can’t because they don’t want to, and there is evidently an open secret that nothing should be said. Not only here in Argentina, but also in a large part of South America, in other words, countries in which the United States has considerable influence, for example, Argentinean airspace is covered by North America. Should a strange object fall here, we’ll reach the site only to find it has already been cordoned off and access is denied.

Primeras observaciones del primitivo y cercano asteroide Bennu

El asteroide Bennu, clasificado como potencialmente peligroso por su proximidad a la Tierra, es más antiguo de lo esperado, con una edad de entre 100 millones y 1.000 millones de años y características similares a los meteoritos más primitivos. En su superficie abundan los minerales hidratados y aparecen rocas grandes. Estos son algunos de los datos que ha recogido la nave OSIRIS-REx de la NASA mientras orbita alrededor de él.

Miraré a la Luna, pero veré a π

El número π nos rodea, nunca mejor dicho, y está escrito en la circunferencia de todos los objetos circulares que vemos a diario, como la luna llena. Pero no aparece solo en la fórmula que relaciona la longitud de una circunferencia y su diámetro, también lo hace en las ecuaciones de la Relatividad General de Albert Einstein (nacido un 14 de marzo) o en las fórmulas relacionadas con la radiación de Stephen Hawking (fallecido el 14 de marzo de 2018).

Mexico: Alleged UFO Sightings at Cerro del Aguacate in Parácuaro

Several local residents and tourists have seen spherical objects issuing white and reddish light as they fly over the hill's slopes.

PARACUARO, MICHOACAN (MiMorealia.com/Newsroom). Since late February to the early days of March, citizens have reported sightings of strange luminous objects flying over the slopes of Parácuaro's Cerro del Aguacate.

According to reports, several local residents and tourists have seen two unidentified spherical objects giving off white light and a reddish tone of lower intensity.

It is for this reason that dozens of people are going to the northern section of this community to witness the phenomenon, where two objects emitting very bright white light appear, and another with a reddish light in its lower section.

The sightings have caused a stir in the town of Parácuaro and according to some witnesses - who did not believe in such things before - the shining objects in the sky have changed their opinion on the matter.

Furthermore, a Facebook user has told MiMorelia.com that he has seen the very same type of object over the capital city of the state of Michoacan. He claims that shortly after 22:00 hours on Saturday, March 9, he was near the San Carmen church when he saw a luminous orb in the sky, which he managed to record on his cellphone.

Mexico: Residents of Hermosillo Startled by UFO

Several videos were disseminated about the object, which was visible to one side of Cerro de la Campana.

An unidentified flying object was recorded for several minutes by a number of citizens, causing astonishment on social media. Several videos were disseminated about the object, which was visible to one side of Cerro de la Campana, around 13:30 hours.



Up to now, no authority or specialist in the subject has voiced an opinion on the object.

Many people who saw the phenomenon reject the possibility that it could be a drone due to its apparent large size.
