Peru: Alleged UFO Causes Astonishment in Huamachuco

Photographer: Alberto Mendoza

Residents of the southern section of Huamachuco are astonished by the sighting of an unidentified flying object (UFO) in the province of Sanchez Carrion, La Libertad region.

According to witnesses, the UFO ahs been over Cerro Tucupina since early hours this morning and does not appear to have moved from the site despite the passing of time, therefore dismissing the possibility of it being an aircraft.

Residents of Huamachuco have employed technology to photograph the UFO (cellphones and other devices). Meanwhile, they observed that a video camera at the Marcabalito sector managed to capture images of the UFO which apparently displays many lights, particularly red ones.

Reactions among the onlookers range from considering a sign of the end of the world to a sign of good luck.

[Ed. - It was suggested last week that the object could belong to Google's Project LOON, but this has not been confirmed. The project LOON high altitude WiFI Internet hub was launched from South America, but appears to be in Southeast Asia at the moment. Their configuration is also different.]

Argentina: Locals Allegedly Witness UFO and Alien in El Dorado

In the city of Santa Cruz, residents of the El Dorado District, El Bastión sector, claim having seen a UFO, alleging that an extraterrestrial creature. They believe the entity descended from its "craft" and that it made an effort to get back on board when detected by locals.

The event took place at 10:00 in the evening. Local residents went as far as to note that the entity climbed through the trees. Students manage to photograph a gleaming light over their neighborhood.

"Three students," alleges the news report, "were witnesses to the sighting from EL Dorado as they returned home from school. It all began with a bright light in the sky, when the unimaginable occurred."

"Something came down, straight down," explains a female witness. "A light came straight down, more or less, and they say it lost itself in that tree. It tried to get into that house over there." Another woman adds: "A very loud sound was heard. All the signals (sic) went out. There was no way to record that sound. Suddenly it fell down and disappeared. I don't know what it could have been."

"It happened at ten o'clock,"continues the narration, "local residents say they saw a UFO in the sky, which crashed on Calle #2 of the district. They even described a strange being that climbed up a tree. (A child can be heard, saying, "some eyes looked at me!").

"It was small and gooey," adds another young woman, speaking to a reporter. "It extended its arms and climbed a tree. That's when all the neighbors came out, but nothing could be found."

The owner of the property remarks: "They said it had long fingers, and climbed right over there," gesturing at her fence.

Argentina: A UFO Sighting in Desvio Arijon, Santa Fe
By Andrea Pérez Simondini

It is interesting to see people make themselves available to research, entrusting their account to our team to bring it to the readers' attention, seeking perhaps the possibility of other witnesses to the case, and if not, information on other cases having the same characteristics.

Fact Sheet:

Location: Desvío Arijón - between Sauce Viejo and Coronda, Province of Santa Fe (Argentina)
Date: Friday, February 19, 2016
Witness: Luciano Castro

So it was that we received a message from Leandro Castro on Facebook, detailing the sighting of an object that he was also able to photograph.

Text of the message:

"Hi Andrea! Good evening. I'm Leandro Castro, I'm from the locality of Desvío Arijón, a little town between Sauce Viejo and Coronda in the Province of Santa Fe. I live by the Coronda River, and I took the photo on Friday, February 19 after one of the heavy storms we had that month. In the photo you can see something flying over the was spectacular, on account of its lights and how close it was! Regrettably, we took some photos with our cellphones and they cannot be seen clearly, but I was able to pull out a little digital camera and take two shots. Having not used the camera for a while, its battery was running low and it turned almost seemed deliberate, ha,ha...well, Andrea, I hope you can use this photo. I have been following your page for a long time, and someday I'll visit your museum. Best regards!"

After thanking him for his message, he replied:

"You're welcome, Andrea! Thank you for replying. I've always been drawn to these things. I like reading about UFOs and suchlike. The photo shows a disk with three pairs of lights and some smaller ones among the larger lights. You can't make out the disk...but the lights define the shape!"

Peru: Three Alleged UFOs Fly Over Chimbote, Captured on Video

Peru: Three Alleged UFOs Fly Over Chimbote, Captured on Video

It was a warm day in Chimbote when people looked at the Moon, only to see three unidentified flying objects (UFOs) flying over the port city's skies.

Journalist Paul Meza published one of the sightings that startled the population on his Facebook Page.

"At around 4:40 in the afternoon I have seen up to two UFOs, but I'm told there were three. The ones I saw were orbiting the moon," said the journalist to a local Chimbote radio station.

The flying objects look like horizontal cylinders and executed circular movements.

The video shows them as being static and not making strange movements in the air. This, however, seemingly caused more expectations among onlookers.

But these UFOs could be balloons belonging to Google's Project Loon, which seeks to bounce internet signals from the stratosphere for cellphones all over the world. The main beneficiaries of this technology would be the planet's most remote areas.

Bolivia: Remembering the Tarija UFO Crash (6 May 1978)

38 Years Since Mysterious Object Fell at the Border
An unidentified flying object fell to the ground at the border between Bolivia and Argentina. Eyewitnesses remember that moment. According to their stories, NASA was involved.

38 years after a metallic and incandescent object fell at the border between Bolivia and Argentina, there are enduring mysteries about what took place on May 6, 1978.

Elias Vacaflor, a witness to the events 38 years ago, says that NASA was on the scene and did not say a word about what was taken away after the UFO crash. According to the former congressman, letters were sent to the government - both to the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Relations, without replies having ever been received. They only agreed that it was a "subject that did not give rise to any concerns."

"I remember that the sky lit up in an unusual way due to the flying of an object resembling a cylinder flying for Northwest to Southeast," says Vacaflor.

Residents of Mecoya, Mecoyita, Sidras, La Merced and other communities surrounding the crash area also witnessed the object and heard the subsequent explosion. Residents of Argentina, the neighboring country, also felt it, and the press offered information on the extraordinary event. The Clarín newspaper ran the headline "UFO Found on the Border Between Argentina and Bolivia."

Journalist Juan Antonio Abarzúa, who worked for El Tribuno de Salta at the time, said that NASA helicopters arrived at the crash site.

Abarzúa, who formed part of that newspaper's visit to the scene, coincided with another team headed by physicist Orlando Bravo. He says that upon reaching the crash site, they found a scene of total destruction: a mountain - Cerro El Salle - had been destroyed, leaving a furrowed crater measuring 1,500 meters long, 800 meters wide and 50 meters deep (4920 ft. x 2600 ft. x 160 ft.).

Residents of Mecoya had already told them that the "gringos had taken away" the remains of whatever had fallen there.

Peru: Alleged UFO Recorded Over Peasant Community
Text: Juan Sequeiros, Photos: Raul Puma

Early this morning, common tenants of the locality of Pucyura in Vilcabamba (Cusco, Peru) saw a UFO. Reporter Raul Puma managed to record it on video, claiming nothing like this has ever been seen before in the area.

"I managed to record it at approximately 07:30 hours, but the object was flying over the vicinity of Habaspata since much earlier. At times it would approach and withdraw from where we were. It made no noise whatsoever and suddenly vanished into the clouds," he said.

What exactly was caught on video remains hitherto unknown. However, weather balloons employed for meteorological testing are sometimes mistaken for flying saucers.

The authorities have not made any statement about such a device being launched in the area in question.
