Argentina: The San Francisco Solano CE-3 (1965)
UFO Depiction
Published: July 25, 2011

Inexplicata - The Journal of Hispanic Ufology

Investigation by: Proyecto CATENT, Buenos Aires, Arg.

Witness: Ramon Eduardo Pereyra, Age: 38

After many years of trying to contact him in vain through phone directories, thanks to the assistance of researcher Hector Antonio Picco, who kindly gave us a copy of his own interview, as well as the eyewitness’s address and phone number, we were able to contact Mr. Pereyra.

There are many sources to this case, but being so unusual, precisely on account of the all-too-human entities encountered, we decided that securing a personal interview was indispensable.

We were surprised at the certainty with which he told his story, remembering numerous details in spite of the time that had elapsed, giving us the impression that this event marked his life in a powerful way.

He was changed by the event, although much more so by the journalistic coverage it received. He became a noontime TV show celebrity, sought by policemen and journalists eager to secure his testimony.

We were welcomed at his home with great kindness and courtesy, and soon he began his story.

Interview Transcript: – conducted by researchers Mariela Veronica de Tomaso and Miguel Angel Gomez Pombo, members of Proyecto CATENT, on 12 May 2001:

How old are you?

I’ll be 72. That’s why I’m telling you I can’t give you a specific year. I must’ve been thirty something when that happened.

I’m going to tell you [the story] as I saw it and according to what occurred. It was an ordinary and commonplace day. I was a milkman at the time, delivering bottled milk, and there was a place where trucks stopped at one place then another, and there were deliverymen.

At a certain time, eight thirty more or less, I always did my job. At that time, the places I walked through or headed to, are now entirely populated. There’s been a complete change.

For example, Donato Alvarez [road], you got to that place, and you’d only find houses up there, then just a road, farms, the odd house with animals. I was coming from San Martin, which starts at Camino General Belgrano and then ends around Calzada [street] or beyond.

I’m going along San Martín, I’m turning on Donato Alvarez, which is on this side of the tracks where there used to be a railroad. I’m driving calmly, like anyone driving with ease.

Suddenly I saw something that moves this way... and it draws my attention, obviously. But I look at the landscape... and it fell, lost itself in the wilderness. There was some dense forest, very large, but it had a clearing. Well, it fell in the clearing, that thing. It was very, very cold. I grabbed a long coat, went to see what it was... but my notion that it fell from above, as though dropped by a parachute, didn’t work.

I left the pickup truck, walked quickly, went under a bridge... wait... I went under a bridge, kept walking. That bridge went over a stream, and train passed overhead. Then I approached, I approached the device. We’re talking about a device now.

I must’ve walked the equivalent of a city block and I realized that something wasn’t right. I kept walking, looked at the device, checked it out... but there was a guy inside, dressed, as though he was stuck inside a box. I was startled by the lights of the device, like a car’s dashboard, that is to say, green, yellow lights, all that... and I saw that the device was small, very small, much too small for its speed.

Maybe this table was longer than the device (witness refers to a standard dining room table). I kept looking at it and didn’t touch it out of respect, because they might say I put my hands on it, or some such. I didn’t touch it because I was afraid or anything. I looked up and could see a fellow in the distance holding– what do you call them? – binoculars, spyglasses... so I headed toward him.

That is to say, I went here, went there, looked this way and headed to where the man was looking toward the center of the forest, known as Monte de los Curas. It was very dense. Later squatters invaded it and they formed a community. I’m not sure if they were ever granted legal ownership or not.... but it was very dense from the number of eucalyptus trees.

It thought they were going to cut it down for its wood, but don’t know if they ever managed to. But as I approached, the guy either sees me or has something that tells him I’m coming... so the guy walks toward me. I see him. I’m not scared. I’m not excited.

I feel nothing. Just like crossing paths with someone. What a strange guy, isn’t he? When he was nearly on top of me I had no choice but to say something, and I said good morning, how do you do? What’s up, boss? And he didn’t say a word.

Frankly, he looked at me with a what-the-hell-do-you-want look and kept walking. I wasn’t too far from the guy, see, and I must’ve been like from here to that other path. I stood still and began to think: this is weird. He made a gesture with his hand, touched the upper part of the vehicle, a sort of dome opened up and he got in.

Once inside, he kept looking around. It looked like it had floated up a little, but first there was a sound like an autogenous plant [...] and began to rise. It rose, closed its legs and took off. [...]

So I stood there wondering, am I nuts? Seriously. That’s what I thought. Am I nuts? Am I dreaming, am I asleep? I became a bit physically uncontrolled. Touched my feet. It was a damp day, found a stream of water flowing nearby... realized I was okay. What happened is that something unexpected had occurred.

So there I was on my way back, what the hell did I see? What was that? I looked one way and another, and saw two fellows walking along the train tracks. I asked: did you guys see anything? No, they said. I told them what had happened to me.

I’m not sure if they paid much mind, and went on their way. Instead of heading toward Pasco to make deliveries, I was stunned by what ID experienced. What was it? What could it be? Where am I? So I went back and left two crates of milk at a police station that used to be on San Martin and Donato Alvarez.

I told the watchman that something strange had happened to me. What happened? he asked. So I told him I'd done this and that, and seen a strange machine on the ground, which landed this way, and I explained everything. Then it took off at a tremendous speed. I managed to see it and I explained it all to him.

Well, so that’s what I did. So where there used to be a butcher store, there was a warehouse before that, and one day two guys appeared three days later and started asking questions. They were newsmen from a paper in Wilde that wanted a scoop. From that moment onward, many researchers, journalists and even the police (the police took him to the Lanus station and asked him many questions. He also spoke to a psychiatrist). They told me I was a normal person.

UFO Depiction At that time, Fabio Zerpa and his team also came over, and I even got a chance to have lunch with Mirtha Legrand. Much later on the came from the Ministry of the Navy Captain Pagani,– and they also interviewed me and kept me for some four or five hours. Later we went to John Kennedy University with Zerpa to give a presentation on UFOs.

It was on one of these events that a foreign journalist asked me how many times had I been to the United States, since the device I was describing resembled something that NASA already had over there. I had said they were Russians, British, Americans... they couldn’t be from anywhere else. You see a guy, he’s dressed almost like you, except for those suits that looked like frogman suits, a guy who’s like you, except without the language to face each other and talk.

How tall were they?

Normal. Thin, elegant. One was walking and the other was stuck inside.

Did they have something on their heads?

No. The one walking had his head combed back, and something behind, a sort of hood that he removed, I don’t know. Don’t know. I saw it calmly, without any fear, emotion or anything like it. That’s very, very important.

You got to stand beside the object. You very nearly touched it?

I didn’t touch it for ethical reasons.

And there was another person inside. And that person didn’t look at you?

That person looked stuck in there. So the other one got in to the other space that was empty. They must’ve been seated back to back.

Was the object transparent?

The upper part had a dome at a certain height, I don’t know. It was steel-colored, just to give you an idea.

What was its shape?

It was like a big egg. Like a Nandú egg. Apparently half of it went this way, and opened completely when the other guy got in. The transparent part.

How did you see the object descend?

Looked like something was falling down.

Was it shiny, dark?

Yes, it was shiny, but it looked like it was raining (sic), as if surrounded by a little bit of fog, but a form that had fallen there was clearly visible.

What color?

Just a regular bundle. I thought it was a parachute that had been cast away.

How was that thing braced on the ground?

With its little legs. Two little legs. The legs closed up when it rose into the air. Because it made an explosion here (sic) and rose to the height of the plants, more or less, at a speed that you couldn’t see it anymore, well, you could see it, but it looked like a long column of smoke. You can imagine the speed it had.

Did it create wind or something as it took off so quickly?

Not that I noticed, no. I’m telling you: it rose to a certain height, ran off, and when I saw it the horizon, it was already gone.

To what height did it rise slowly?

Up to tree top level.

What did it look like from underneath? Did it have a turbine or something to propel it?

I couldn’t feel anything. Felt no noise and there was nothing to be seen underneath. I didn’t’ see anything out of the ordinary. That’s why you’ve got to be careful when making a report. That’s why the make you take tests.

Was there any mark left on the ground?

No.

You were very close. Could you hear any noise or sound?

No.

And the cabin with the dashboard, did it feel very modern to you?

And I thought it was going to start talking to me.

The man walked normally?

Yes.

What was his hair color?

Very blond.

Were both blond? No, I didn’t see the other. You couldn’t see the one inside. You could tell there was a guy inside; you know he’s there because I saw him.

But you couldn’t see his head?

No, no. But I saw this one because he walked with the hood pulled back. He had a military field pouch on his legs and those thingies... the binoculars.

And regarding the dashboard...

I’m telling you, I owned an estanciera (rural vehicle similar to a Willis Jeep) and the dashboard wasn’t very technical.

What was it like?

It was a dashboard with yellow, green and red buttons inside. No steering wheel was visible.

Pereyra is a native of Elordi (a town in the province of Buenos Aires which, according to him, no longer exists, but was near General Villegas). He told us an anecdote about another sighting of a similar object that took place in his town, and also of his encounter with “la luz mala” (The Evil Light).

“We reached a field by a gate. I was 16 years old. The light moved and jumped from one side to another. It fell upon us, lighting everything up. We were scared... these were lights...

What color was it?

White. If you’re scared of them, it gets worse. There are mysteries worthy of respect. Did you associate this thing you saw with that light?

No, nothing to do with it at all.

Continuing with his story, and making reference to the various types of humanoids discussed in the UFO symposium held in Rosario, to which Fabio Zerpa was a guest, he said:

... It isn’t that, the fact is that there is someone who comes to look at us and our comings and goings, just like someone went to the Moon. But they’re terrestrial... what do you think?

Did you have the impression that they were from here?

I’m convinced.

And what were they doing there?

Who knows? Looking at something, investigating something...

He also says that after this case, and without specifying a date, both his father and a neighbor saw some strange objects passing through the area.

Remarks

There isn’t much else to add to the lengthy and detailed report on the experience that befell this humble man. During our long chat, he repeated time and again that “the ones I saw are from here”.

And they certainly appear to be so, judging by their physical appearance, although we understand that no one had such technology in the 1960s. If so, we would all be flying around in such devices, which seem to be a fine means of air transportation.

And if they are not from here, what could someone from beyond our world or culture be doing, wandering through a forest in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Evidently, this is absurd, as is commonplace with hitherto unexplained phenomena.

The fact is that Pereyra saw them. Or at least he thought he saw them. Or better yet, something showed itself on that rainy morning, something that we don’t understand and perhaps conceals itself behind that display of supposedly quasi-terrestrial technology: too advanced for the times, but too human to be true reflection of some distant visitors.

What lies behind what was shown to Pereyra? Perhaps well find out someday.

UFO Investigator, Near-Death Expert Shares Stories from His Long Career
Deb Cram photo Ray Fowler of Kennebunk is a teacher of astrological subjects as well as being a UFO investigator. He poses with models of the solar system and moon which he uses as tools when he teaches.Deb Cram/dcram@seacoastonline.co
Published: July 28, 2011

By Kelly Hearn, yccs@seacoastonline.com

If you've been to a local retirement home and heard someone belting out old-timey tunes, chances are it was Raymond E. Fowler, an unassuming bass soloist who's been on the "Today" show, "The Dick Caveat Show" and other programs.

But his public appearances have nothing to do with music.

Fowler, soft-spoken, sharp-minded and intense, is one of the world's foremost authorities on paranormal experiences and UFOs, subjects on which he has written 11 books, detailing his own experiences and those of others.

Fowler's career included a stint in the U.S. Air Force Security Service and 25 years with a military contractor, GTE Government Systems, where he was a senior planner for nuclear weapons systems, including the Minuteman and MX Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.

And it was during his work on the Minuteman system that he heard of oddities, of UFOs disrupting the world's most sophisticated weaponry.

"I have interviewed USAF Minuteman Launch Control Facility Officers who all describe the same thing," he said: an unidentified flying object hovers over the massive missiles for a few moments, causing the missiles to go off-line.

Other similar UFO incidents have disrupted communications and the missile guidance systems, he said.

"Of course the government has never acknowledged that it happened," said Fowler. He documented the claims in a book, "Casebook of a UFO Investigator."

It's not just UFOs that have piqued Fowler's interest over the years.

He's also an expert in near-death experiences, where people who have been revived from clinical death.

"They describe leaving their body and seeing and hearing all that is going on around the dead body while in an out-of-the-body experience," he said. "Even the blind are able to see in this state."

Fowler said he has spent years documenting cases in which "people are drawn to and travelling through a dark place or tunnel toward a brilliant light, which exudes indescribable unconditional love."

Some see or meet deceased relatives.

"Others experience a detailed movie-like life review where they are shown that their acts of love and forgiveness are the most important things in life," he said. "When told that it is not their time to stay, very rarely does anyone want to return to life on earth."

He said near-death research is cutting edge, and often contrary to cultural, religious and scientific assumptions about the nature of life.

Scientific studies by medical doctors indicate that such experiences can't be explained away as convulsions of a dying brain, he argues.

"How does that account for the fact that millions of people have reported leaving their bodies and having similar experiences?" he said.

And he's written thousands of pages about people who claim — as he does — to have been abducted by aliens.

Over the years, he himself has had UFO experiences.

He said these have included periods of missing time after sighting a UFO.

Fowler has marks that he says are identical to "punch biopsies" on his leg, and he has photos and X-rays of the spot where a scoop of flesh is missing. He also has X-ray images of a small "anomalous object" in his nose.

"These things are very common among people who have been abducted," he said.

Of course, it's easy to be incredulous. But Fowler's intellect and doggedness in researching paranormal events has garnered him praise from the world's top experts in their fields, including the deceased astronomer and former chairman of Northwestern University's Department of Astronomy, Professor J. Allen Hynek, who wrote the foreword to Fowler's book "UFOs: Interplanetary Visitors."

"This foreword is primarily a tribute to an outstanding UFO investigator and fact-finder," wrote Hynek, who also served as chief scientific consultant to three USAF UFO projects. "I know of no one who is more dedicated, trustworthy or persevering than Ray Fowler."

As Galileo and others learned the hard way, explains Fowler, new models of reality don't always sit well with the science and religion of the day.

"They burned Bruno at the stake," he said, referring to Giordano Bruno, the 15th-century astronomer who was burned at the stake by the Roman Inquisition for his ideas about the universe, including the belief that other intelligent beings exist in an infinite number of other worlds.

Fowler, whose musical performances with his wife Margaret support the Good Shepherd Food Bank, doesn't just go around with his head in the clouds — or space, for that matter. For him, practical contributions to society are just as important as his professional passions.

Controversial Belgian UFO Image Confirmed a Hoax after Two Decades
Published: 10:32 AM 7/30/2011

By IBTimes Staff Reporter

In April 1990, a photograph of a triangular shaped hovering UFO by an eighteen year old man named Patrick became one of the most sensational photographs that perplexed even scientists at NASA.

After almost two decades, the mystery of the photograph was finally resolved as the man behind the hoax admitted the picture was a fake.

In a TV interview, one of the forgers admitted that the UFO was made of polystyrene and then photographed.

This Belgian UFO incident is closely related with a period in the country when there were several reports of triangular UFO sightings by the public.

Coined as the Belgian UFO Wave, the events lasted from November 1989 to April 1990.

"You can do a lot with a little; we managed to trick everyone with a piece of polystyrene. We made the model with polystyrene, we painted it and then we started sticking things to it, then we suspended it in the air... then we took the photo," Reuters quoted one of the forgers during an interview with French-language broadcaster RTL.

For years together, this image puzzled scientists and researchers across the world and a search plane was also ordered at that time to hunt down the UFOs across the nation but to no avail.

(Editor's Note: Question; Was he lying then or lying now.?

Cuban Witness Recalls UFO-EBE Encounter
UFO Depiction
Published: 10 July 2011

Posted By : Edited by Albert Rosales

On October 15 1995, there was an incident in a country where information about UFOs and other anomalous phenomena was almost non-existent and very much controlled by the government.

In the village of Torriente, Matanzas Province, Cuba, 74-year old farmer, Adolfo Serrate, despite the light rain, left his house early in order to work his cornfield.

Around 9:20 AM, Serrate decided to take a much needed smoke break. As he exhaled the smoke he looked towards the sky and was surprised to see a round object that was descending quickly and silently towards the nearby fields.

Scared, Serrate hid among the cornfield and the edge of the field. He was concerned he ‘would be kidnapped’ since his cousin had mysteriously disappeared in the same area 2 years before.

Crouching low to the ground he watched the round craft descend to the ground. It gently landed on some grass on a sort of landing gear that the witness compared to ‘skates.”

The surface of the object was very smooth, without any visible details and it gave Serrate the impression that it was colored in different tones of green, almost as if camouflaged.

He estimated the object to be as large as a passenger car. Breathlessly he noticed that the object had a transparent glass section, which he interpreted as the control cabin.

The strange craft did not have any wings or rotors or wheels like he was familiar with when he was aircraft mechanic in the service.

To Serrate it resembled the top of a turtle. An aperture like that of a sliding door became visible, and from where he was, about 60 to 80 metres away, he could not clearly see the interior.

However, he was able to see what appeared to be a human-like figure come out of the opening. He was not able to see any facial features since the figure was completely covered in a suit the same color as the object.

The figure’s head and face were covered with a sort of gas mask black in colour. The individual walked around the object and on several occasions seemed to bend down and pluck some of the malanga and calabaza roots on the field. The figure then walked behind the object and when he came around again he leaned against the hull of the object next to the opening.

He then made a sort of gesture with his head towards the inside of the object perhaps communicating with other unseen occupants. Moments later he boarded the object and the door closed, without leaving any signs that it was actually there.

Serrate remained watching the scene not knowing what to expect next.

Suddenly he felt a sort of air wave or shock on his face, which also disturbed the cornstalks and other small plants around him, at the same time he could see the UFO ascending vertically into the sky, without emitting any fire, smoke and making any noise.

At about 50 feet in height it stopped briefly and at this point Serrate saw what appeared to be a thin blue flame coming out from an unknown source on the top of the object.

The object then took off in a horizontal flight towards the south towards the nearby National Highway, still completely silent. Immediately the witness ran home and notified the police, afraid that he had seen an “enemy aircraft engaged in sabotage.”

Later investigators interviewed other locals who reported seeing the same or similar craft in flight. At the site they found physical evidence, including footprints, and leaves scorched black by the object’s propulsion system.

The material was reportedly turned over to the Cuban Academy of Sciences.

UFO Found on Ocean Floor?
UFO Depiction
Published: 29 Jul 2011 15:46

Benjamin Radford, Life's Little Mysteries

Peter Lindberg's team found what appears to be a crashed flying saucer on the ocean floor.

An ocean exploration team led by Swedish researcher Peter Lindberg has found what some are suggesting is a crashed flying saucer. Lindberg's team, which has had success in the past recovering sunken ships and cargo, was using sonar to look for the century-old wreck of a ship that went down carrying several cases of a super-rare champagne.

Instead, the team discovered what it claims is a mysterious round object that might (or might not) be extraterrestrial.

Lindberg explained to local media that his crew discovered, on the 300-foot-deep ocean floor between Finland and Sweden, "a large circle, about 60 feet in diameter. You see a lot of weird stuff in this job, but during my 18 years as a professional I have never seen anything like this. The shape is completely round."

Adding to the mystery at the bottom of the Gulf of Bothnia, Lindberg said he saw evidence of scars or marks disturbing the environment nearby, suggesting the object somehow moved across the ocean floor to where his team found it.

It's not clear what to make of this report, or the video of the sonar scan that shows the object, but Swedish tabloids and Internet UFO buffs have had a field day. Some suggest the object is a flying saucer of extraterrestrial origin (and the seafloor scars were dug up when it crashed), though of all the things that might create a round sonar signature, that seems to be among the more outlandish.

It might be a natural feature formation, or possibly a sunken, round man-made object.

Lindberg's claim that the object "is perfectly round" may or may not be accurate; while it looks round from the information so far, the resolution of the sonar image was not high enough to verify that it is indeed round. And while the lines that appear to be leading to (or from) the feature may suggest some sort of movement, it's also possible they have nothing to do with the object.

Lindberg himself did not offer an extraterrestrial origin, though he did speculate it might be a "new Stonehenge."

It's also worth noting that UFOs may not be saucer-shaped. The famous "flying saucer" description of the first UFO has since been revealed as a reporting error.

Lindberg said his team has neither the interest nor the resources to further investigate the anomaly. Deep ocean research is time-consuming and expensive. If the object were indeed a flying saucer, recovering it could potentially be worth millions or billions of dollars. If it's a natural formation, on the other hand, it would probably be a waste of time and money.

Watchers in the Night Sky - Couple Encountered Triangle UFO
 Depiction of Sighting

Published-03/05/09

By J. D. Adams

(Salem, Oregon) - Our UFO sighting was in 1988, but it was years before we told anybody. Amongst ourselves it was rarely mentioned, as if we didn't want to believe it. Being practical Oregonians, our minds reeled at the possibilities that were unleashed by the occurrence.

Suddenly we had become players in one of the stories that we could only read about before. I know now what others must have gone through when they saw a UFO at close range, the incredulity that other people expressed when we told them. It became a life-changing experience. The universe seems a different place now, less a barren vacuum of space.

Our sighting wasn’t necessarily extraterrestrial, but it was an extremely advanced technology. What that really means is open to conjecture. Most radical departures from conventional wisdom have had to overcome the inertia of the scientific community.

One day we will reach out for the stars, but it is folly to think we will be the first to have done so. I have formed this opinion only since that night in 1988. I was formerly a person who looked at the sky expecting only the usual clutter of planes, stars, and the occasional blinking satellite.

Our encounter was on a crisp fall night like any other, with errands to be completed. The sky was clear and full of stars. My wife and I were returning from the grocery store, driving northward along Fischer Road in Salem, Oregon. It is a residential thoroughfare that parallels Interstate 5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something hovering over the freeway. The unnatural stillness and lack of visible support for the object had caught my eye.

At first I thought it was a traffic helicopter, which by itself would have been unusual in this area. As I looked closer at the object, the uniqueness of it compelled me to pull the car over to the side of the road and stop. I got out and listened hard for the sound of rotor noise, but there was none.

The fact that it was only about 200 feet away made this highly unusual. The craft had lights about its perimeter, but the exact outline of the body was strangely indistinct, like it had a low profile when viewed from the side. In an attempt to explain the phenomenon, I initially dismissed it as one of those Harrier jets that can vent the exhaust downward for landing. However, the quietness of the craft and the fact it was over the freeway made this impossible. As human beings symbolic logic is our forte.

It is one of the things that distinguish us from lower primates and other animals. But there was nothing in my experience with which I could represent the UFO in my mind, so I came up with the best that I could, a rather poor representation of what I was actually seeing.

Later this would become more pronounced, a bothersome feeling of something totally alien in my familiar world. My wife was also observing the strange craft. Exchanging glances with her, I got back in the car and we drove on to Silverton Road, turning left and passing under the freeway and several blocks westward to our apartment.

As we turned into the parking lot, we both viewed a sight that is still fixed in my mind like a photograph. There was the hovering craft directly over the parking lot. It had followed us over from the freeway. I had to drive toward it as I pulled into our parking spot. We watched in amazement for a few moments and then decided to get out.

There were no bright lights shining downward, and nobody else was outside at the apartment complex at this hour to view it besides my wife and I.

There was just it and the two of us, as if we had been selected out of a nighttime crowd that was too busy to look upward. One of my impressions at the time was how unusually easy it was for something so remarkable to be otherwise unobserved in the dark sky.

It appeared that the UFO inhabitants had seen us watching them, and they were now looking at us out of curiosity or to see if we represented some kind of threat. At this point the craft was about 70 feet overhead.

I could see clearly it was perhaps 30 feet across, with a triangular shape that was outlined with small round lights. There was no significant sound coming from it, only a faint humming that was barely noticeable.

The way it hovered absolutely motionless made it all the more fantastic. The craft quietly defied all rational attempts to explain it. It was real, a dark gray triangle floating in a sea of stars. We stared at it for what seemed like thirty seconds. By now tension had built to an alarming degree, so we hastened inside our apartment and walked directly across to the patio door to look out.

The craft was slowly moving southward, building speed with deliberate precision. Its ponderous mass floated like it was a feather, disappearing in the night sky. Since we had said little during the event, I asked what my wife had seen as verification. She mirrored my observations. Looking at the clock, we were relieved to see no time was missing.

I feel privileged to have viewed such an amazing phenomenon. We shall never forget it.

Was it a secret military prototype, the implementation of Nikola Tesla’s later theories of gravity repulsion, spawned from his confiscated notes? Perhaps. But at this late date nothing resembling it has surfaced in the news. Or was it something from beyond our solar system, cloaked in darkness and the ignorance of our more primitive world?
