UFO Picture Taken in Costa Rica, September 1971

UFO, Costa Rica Here is an intriguing photograph taken in Costa Rica of a UFO as it seems to enter or exit the water. The accompanying letter states:

"I am sending you a .GIF type file with the photograph taken above Lake Cote in Costa Rica. After doing some research I have to clarify that, contrary to what I told you, it was not lake Arenal but Lake Cote instead, and, just to set the record straight, it wasn't an American mapping plane, but a Costa Rican plane.

"This is an impressive photo, and it's already been analyzed in several parts of the world. I quote from the latest report by researchers Richard Haines and Jacques Valle:

"In summary, our analyses have suggested that an unidentified, opaque, aerial object was captured on film at a maximum distance of 10,000 feet. There are no visible means of lift or propulsion and no surface markings other than dark regions that appear to be nonrandom... There is no indication that the image is the product of a double exposure or a deliberate fabrication." [Haines, and Vallee, 1989].

A high resolution camera was mounted on the plane pointing downwards, and programmed to take photographs of the terrain below every 17 seconds.

It shows in extraordinary detail all features of the landscape (water, shoreline, trees, etc.) and you'll notice how it was determined that the object (about 600+ ft. or 200 meters in diameter was coming into the water from right to left at an angle of approximately 30° in relation to the surface of the water.

The area covered is approximately 7 miles across.

Famous Costarican contactee and expert in telecommunications, engineer Enrique Castillo whose reports are as trustworthy as you'll ever get, and who has passed all sorts of tests involving hypnotic regression and lie-detection in laboratories in the U.S., had his first contact on top of the Irazu Volcano in Costa Rica, aproximately 9,000 feet above sea level, back in 1963, in the exact spot which I have visited many times and which happens to look like an eerie artificial forest with more than 200 steel towers (veritable hub of telecommunication activities in the country).

Not far from there, I myself have spotted several crafts hovering at various heights while hiking in the mountains, some of them around the area where famous researcher Andreas Faber-Kaiser reported having gone down a tunnel which locals claim leads to the so called "Temple of the Moon", a sacred building said to have been built some millennia ago by an advanced race as part of a compound that includes some 500 underground buildings.
