Argentina: Researcher Proposed UFO Tourism for Salta Province

SALTA (Newsroom) - Antonio Zuleta, a researcher of unidentified flying objects, proposed the rather intriguing notion of promoting "UFO tourism". The native of Cachi is also in the process of shooting a movie on alien life.
Zuleta says that seeing objects of this sort in the Valle Chalchaquí area is quite common, and that records exist for similar occurrences elsewhere in the province but on a lesser degree. According to him, there are witnesses who have seen strange beings prowling the area.

In a statement to FM LaVoz radio, the researcher asked the provincial government to promote Salta as a UFO sighting area, as this will serve to attract massive tourism to Salta and will jump-start the economy. Zuleta ended by saying that the phenomenon has not been given the importance it deserves, despite being exploited elsewhere in the world.

In Campo Santo, a wilderness area in Salta, a teacher named Malena Agudo wanted to photograph a landscape, and upon checking the photo, was startled to see the strange flying object in the shot.

The photo was taken in La Poma, and the instructor says that upon close inspection of the photographs taken with her cellphone, she witnessed a strange flying object between the hills of the Nevado de Cachi. It was taken near the home of Eulogia Tapia last month, who assured the teacher that sightings are common in the area.

"Some of my relatives are from La Poma and they say sightings have been frequent for a long time now. At night they look like lanterns. People say it's the luz mala (evil light)," Malena told Diario 24. This isn't the first time that our readers have informed us of strange events on provincial territory.

In this regard, she said: "I didn't want to share my experience earlier, fearing I wouldn't be believed, but upon hearing about it, my relatives urged me to report it." This isn't the first time that our readers have informed us of strange events on provincial territory.

A woman identified as Rebeca Victoria Diaz Estrella uploaded a clip to YouTube showing images taken from her own home. According to her statement, "the UFO was visible from Salta proper at 4:37 a.m." further adding: "I saw it from my house and summoned my parents, and we recorded it. As you can see, the camera is still."

Argentina: Army Sergeant Sees a Train-Shaped UFO
By Andrea Pérez Simondini
Investigation conducted by Carlos Iurchuk
Material by Osvaldo Sánchez

In October 2010, researcher Carlos Iurchuck made a trip to the Chaco following the trail of cases experienced by military personnel.

On October 9, he held a meeting with Osvaldo Sánchez, a researcher and broadcaster who is unquestionably the greatest compiler of case histories in that province.

Osvaldo is a retired policeman who once held the rank of commissioner. He became interested in the UFO phenomenon as a result of the stories told by members of the police force, involving experiences in various parts of the Chaco.

He has hosted the "Encuentros Cercanos con el Mas Alla" radio show for over 35 years, and after a personal interview, he was kind enough to give Carlos some material, including pages he had written years ago, describing local events as they were told to him. Thus, we share with you an even from the 1970s:

"In the early morning hours of 1977 or 1978, perhaps during the months of October or November, the eyewitness, Army sergeant [name withheld], in the company of Mr. [name withheld], a well-known businessman in the province, were travelling along National Route 11 in a Ford Fairlane heading toward Resistencia. When they were north of Santa Fe, both men saw something resembling an "illuminated train" that crossed the road in complete silence and lost itself in the fields.

"He said the object looked like "an arrow" and moved flush to the ground. The ghostly apparition startled them greatly. The person telling the story exclaimed - "look out for the train", although his companion replied that he was already aware of it. Once the moment was over, they stopped the car to remark on their sighting, realizing only then that no railroad tracks existed in that area.

To this very day in 1993, the witnesses still wonder: "what was that?"

Argentina: Uncanny Light Source Photographed in Argentina

The following is a message from Silvia Pérez Simondini, director of Visión OVNI and CEFORA, sent to UFO groups:

Dear Friends,

I was truly amazed on Sunday night. For 26 years, night after night, I have observed and have come to know each spot on the island from the summit of Cerro de la Matanza. On Sunday, with my friend Checo Jaroslav, we visited the summit once more, and I was astonished to see a vast source of light in the middle of the river. The lights of the city of Rosario could be seen in the distance, which gave me the certainty that these lights we were seeing were much closer to Victoria.

I'd like to clarify a few things. The bridges along the Victoria-Rosario route are not lit, much less in this manner. All along the route there is nothing I know that has such illumination. It was interesting to observe it from hilltop, but what happened later was truly fantastic. The upper part of the illumination vanished as if by magic, and since Checo was returning to Buenos Aires along that route, we agreed that he would make sure to see what it was from both sides. The fact is he saw absolutely nothing, or any area illuminated in such a way. We have no idea what it was, only that it was never in the river, and I'm sure that I'll never see it again.

These are the photos. The last photo depicts how it was left after the upper section vanished, and what evidently also vanished when Checo departed.

[Editor's Note: Cerro de la Matanza - Slaughter Hill - owes its name to a mass killing of natives in 1750 by Francisco Antonio de Vera y Mujica, governor of the city of Santa Fe. The name appears in official documents from 1779.]

Argentina: Google Supposedly Photographs UFO at El Cholar

A resident of Neuquén claims that an image in Google Street View captured the presence of a UFO at El Cholar in the northern end of the province.

The renowned street and route-mapping system whose photographs make up one of the Internet’s most significant search engines recorded images of Provincial Route 6, linking El Cholar with the Pichachén Pass.

The controversial image was taken by the Google car only kilometers away from El Cholar, heading eastward, leading to a variety of theories on social media.

Skeptics believe that [the image] shows a bird caught in mid-flight, but others allow room for the mysterious and suggest that it could be an unidentified flying object.

In any event, the El Cholar photo shall become part of the gallery of strange images taken by the Google vehicles as they traversed our country.

Peru: A Startling UFO Reported in Huánuco

Journalists for the Huánuco-based OVNIS TV program have shaken social media on account of a YouTube video they have published. The video records the afternoon sighting of some UFOs (alleged) in the vicinity of Puchuchinchi. UFO buffs and students have rekindled their interest in Peru due to the large number of sightings in recent months, which have been disseminated over social media.

On Saturday, June 11, members of the broadcast specializing in UFOs was headed for Pucuchinchi, a community on the left bank of the Higueras River, some 500 meters from the Kotosh ruins. Once installed at the Casa Hacienda San Germán, they saw a UFO in the sky which bemused YouTube users and become a source of controversy among UFO believers.

Around 17:00 hours, the group was about to perform an earth-worship ritual as part of preparations for the Dia del Campesino (Peasants' Day), when they saw an unidentified flying object hanging over Cerro Marabamba. Those having knowledge of the UFO phenomenon immediately noticed that the apparent UFO appeared and disappeared. Their astonishment was even greater when they realized that two UFOs were involved, one of them very close to the other.

But minutes later, they were able to see the UFO again, being able to record it and capture greater details on the supposed craft, which apparently changed shapes, as explained by one of the 5 witnesses to the phenomenon. The YouTube video is already being posted to other websites specializing in the UFO subject. And what do you believe? Are these UFOs over the skies of Peru?

Peru: UFOs Cause a Stir in Latin America

Peru: UFOs Create a Stir in Latin America
By Yohanan Diaz Vargas

Three very noisy unidentified flying objects were seen over the town of San Gabriel de Varadero in Loreto, near the town of Yurimaguas in Peru. The event took place on May 16 [2016] at 20:00 hours. The UFOs were quite close to the rooftops of the local homes, shocking local residents who had no idea what the objects were. One of the objects was described as being saucer-shaped and with lights "like those of a traffic light". It landed for a few minutes, leaving a triangular mark with three perforations on the surface. Upon seeing them, local residents screamed and asked for help. There were even some who phoned the radio station so that it could, in turn, alert the National Police.

An audio recording was made known by Anthony Choy, researcher and host of the 'Viaje a Otra Dimensión' program, containing a call for help made at 21:00 hours, shortly after the UFOs were reported. Beings with non-human characteristics were apparently reported as well.

On the recording one can hear the voices of desperate people, and the show host could not believe what he was hearing. An unprecedented event in Latin America.

Agripina Wanse, one of the witnesses, stated: "Just as we were about to go to sleep, we heard a noise descending from above. Within this noise was a sound like that of a blender, something like a motor," she said, going on to add: "[They] even lit up the room in which we were sleeping; some lights were being trained on us. We felt frightened and started to scream."

Mrs. Wanse said that the objects' color was "like that of a traffic light. Moments later, one of our neighbors, called Herber Chanchari, came by and witnessed the presence of these mysterious objects. They were kite-shaped while on the ground, and when it tried taking off again, it glowed like a traffic light between red and green."

Mr. Canchari was shocked by what he saw and reached for his shotgun, firing away at the mysterious UFO. "The shot I fired wasn't like firing at a person, who you can see. It was a machine that suddenly moved elsewhere and the shot went astray."

The next day, again at 20:00 hours, another highly luminous unidentified flying object was seen, also quite loud. It came to rest above the home of Mrs. Donilda Lomas, who went out into the street to see what was going on. She witnessed the descent of a luminous humanoid whose height she estimated at one meter and seventy centimeters (5'6"). The luminous being did not touch the ground when it reached it - it was floating."

The case caused a worldwide stir due to its characteristics, and also because incidents of this sort had not been reported since the 1960s.

Two days later - on the evening of 19 May - the same story would repeat in El Dorado, Santa Cruz, Bolivia, where the presence of a spherical UFO was reported. [The object] descended from the sky enveloped in flames, and the witnesses -- three youngsters returning home after school -- saw the object come to rest beside a tree. The most interesting detail is that they also saw a humanoid entity with short arms and long legs, whose body appeared to be gelatinous, as though melting away. Researcher Rolando Fabricio visited the site, performing a series of measurements and discovering that electrical alterations were present in the area, possibly accounting for why the locals were unable to contact the police at the time, finding that their cellphones and other electronic devices were dead.

But if you look clearly, you can see a group of unidentified objects - seemingly a UFO. This photo was taken in Cd. Victoria, Tamaulipas at the Siglo XXI Park on 2 June 2016."

A powerful storm, accompanied by wind gusts and hail, was unleashed over some parts of the city after the photograph was taken.

Rubén Morales: Los OVNIS de la Antártida (UFOs of Antarctica)

INEXPLICATA is pleased to announce the publication (in Spanish) of researcher Rubén Morales's Los OVNIS de la Antartida (UFOs of Antarctica) in recent days.

Mr. Morales is a social psychologist and an instructor in public communications at the Universidad de Salvador de Buenos Aires, from which he also earned a masters in Political Marketing. He has other publications on subjects pertaining to the South Pole in the Boletín del Centro Naval (Naval Center Bulletin), the Boletín de la Asociación Polar Pinguinera (Polar Penguin Society Bulletin), the Fundación Marambio and the British Antarctic Survey Club.

The promotional release for Los Ovnis de la Antártida reads thus: "The greatest heavenly mystery in the least known of the continents. Reports of unidentified flying objectis in the far south have been more numerous than previously thought. This book collects direct eyewitness accounts - pro and con - for the first time, official documents, declassified files and first-hand sources that provide an array of extraordinary accounts on unexplained phenomena in the white continent."

"One of the greatest challenges of political communications for any government," it goes on to say, "would be to inform its citizens that UFOs definitely exist and are not of this world. The communiqués issued by the Secretariat of the Navy on July 6-7, 1965 regarding UFOs seen over the Argentinean Antarctic were an effort at meeting such a challenge, which in fact unleashed a formidable phenomenon of journalistic multiplication, whose repercussions cascaded into public opinion".
