Location: Puerto Madryn, Chubut, Argentina
Date: Saturday, 2 November 2013 - Time: Between 0200 and 0500 hours
Witnesses: Two (2) younger anonymous witnesses and an older one.
Vicky Zeigler, a researcher with the VISION OVNI team, has been closely following the events taking place in the city of Puerto Madryn, Chubut Province, due to the characteristics of these events: Lights are seen entering and departing from the water, remaining suspended over the ocean, with no other explanation but the movements themselves.
Her vigilance and searching paid off, as she was able to obtain an eyewitness account directly from the experiencers. At their own request, we are keeping their names confidential.
On Saturday, 2 November, two men (37 and 28 years old, respectively) and a 54-year-old man went fishing at the beach known as Pozo at the opening of Golfo Nuevo in the city of Puerto Madryn - Chubut.
It should be noted that these beaches are known for their mussels, located some 3 kilometers away from the picturesque Punta Loma Reserve when driving from the city of Puerto Madryn.
In the early morning hours of Saturday, 2 November, between 02:00 and 05:00 hours, they witnessed the manifestation of a large red sphere. The object later changed colors to orange and while it held this tone, it issued a smaller red sphere from its interior.
The description given by the witnesses is that it resembled a star that wound up "falling into the sea."
Meanwhile, the larger sphere took off vertically and at high speed. The movement it made from that point onward was up and down and from left to right, creating a zig-zag pattern or a few moments, before returning to its original position.
Says one of the witnesses: "We were very pleased about having seen something. We remained awake all night; the skies were starry and there was no moon."
While the witnesses were unable to secure photos or videos of what they saw, the movement of the lights can be perfectly recreated in these visuals.

Back in the Day - Cabbage Patch Fever/Wanaque Reservoir UFOs

It had been 12 years since the UFO sightings around the Wanaque Reservoir area were all the rage. Trying to spot UFOs by the reservoir was such a popular nighttime activity that the sky watchers' cars backed up the roads in the vicinity.
"Scientists are still seeking answers to the 1966 event, and by the end of the year there reportedly may be a scientific explanation to the sightings," it was reported.
A non-profit group of researchers from Stanhope, under the name of Vestigia Inc., was gearing up to test their hypothesis that seismic pressure on quartz-bearing rock was responsible for the mysterious light configurations.
Robert Jones, a Byram Township computer analyst who founded Vestigia Inc., believed there was a common explanation for the UFOs. Jones had also been exploring strange lighting in Long Valley for two years.
The reported sightings at Wanaque and Long Valley almost always seem to be of soft, glowing lights close to the ground, Jones noted.
According to his hypothesis, seismic pressure on the crystalline rock surfaces gives off lightning. Jones believed the pressure around the Wanaque Reservoir might have been caused by the nearby Ramapo Fault. A number of mild tremors occurred along the fault line over the years.
With permission from the North Jersey District Water Supply Commission, the researchers intended to use Geiger counters, infrared detectors, magnetometers, and surveying equipment in their work at the reservoir.
In 1977, Vestigia Inc. had helped the U.S. Navy investigate the mysterious sonic booms heard along the New Jersey coast.
The noises were never fully explained, it was reported.
It was Jan. 11, 1966 at about 6:30 p.m. when residents, municipal officials, and police in North Jersey glanced up and saw strange lights in the sky.
At that time, the Pompton Lakes Police Department handled dispatching duty for many of the local towns.
"Listen," went a typical call, "this sounds crazy, but I saw something in the sky. Do you know what it is?"
The calls came from Wanaque, Ringwood, West Milford, Butler, and Wayne. There were even some from the Paterson and Totowa area.
The astounded callers were looking for an explanation, but police could not understand the white oval hovering in the sky. The UFO was described as a white and garishly bright disk 2 feet in diameter.
To observers, the odd movements of the mysterious visitor were enthralling. Some felt as if it was toying with police, citizens, and borough officials by performing dives almost into the reservoir.
"At times it appeared as if it were looking down upon the spectators from a silent stationary position high in the heavens and by making neat right angles as if it were using the sky as a chalkboard," one reporter wrote.
It was reported that the UFO made "quick stops" at various locations in the community: Lakeland Regional High School, the Houdaille sand pit, and the overhead bridge on Ringwood Avenue which had since been torn down. Then it disappeared.
Hours later, at 2:15 a.m., it reappeared over Wyckoff. Five minutes later was spotted back over the reservoir in Wanaque. Police said it almost came to rest at the top of the 1,500-foot-long Raymond Dam. It was gone at 4:15 a.m.
The Air Force, contacted when the object was first seen, said it was an official helicopter with a strong beacon. A few hours later, police spotted Air Force jets flying over the Wanaque Reservoir area.
Then August Roberts, a member of the International Intelligence on Unidentified Flying Objects, said the object "might possibly have been a government experiment in the creation of an anti-gravity machine."
The 1966 sightings in Wanaque were not the first. Some 18 years earlier, Charles Capen, former chief engineer of the North Jersey District Water Supply Commission, said he had seen a similar object.

Diamond-shaped Object Reported over Poultney, Vermont
Published: 10:15 AM 12/10/2013

Poultney, Vermont - 11-25-13
I was walking toward a building on campus and as I got closer (sky no longer covered by trees) I noticed a light gray diamond-shaped object hovering near, but far above the building I was heading to.
A side of it was sort of shimmering as the sunlight hit it and this caught my attention. At first, it was not moving -- it was hovering in one place in the sky.
I did not think of anything it could be when I first saw it, but I knew it looked strange, I had never seen such a thing in the sky (especially in that location) ever before, and I knew it was not an airplane because planes do not simply stay in one location in the sky and are not diamond-shaped.
The diamond-shaped object continued to hover in the same location in the sky for about 5-10 minutes, but I can’t say an exact time.
After observing it for some time, it suddenly disappeared. I then heard a loud almost "waving" noise. It’s difficult to describe -- when I took notes on what I saw that day, I wrote "a little like the sound of an airplane flying, but different."
The noise was slightly similar to the sounds that I would hear airplanes in New York City make, but it had more of a "wave" to it, for lack of a better word.
The object reappeared across the sky (to my right) and it was moving very quickly. I watched until it moved too far away for me to see it.
While viewing the object in the sky, I was confused, of course. I also found it strange that no one else was looking to the sky...

UFOs Spotted over Mt. Annan Were Seen as Far as California
Published: 3:11 PM 12/12/2013
SEAN THOMPSON, MACARTHUR CHRONICLE, CAMDEN
PEOPLE from around the world have substantiated claims of UFO activity over the Macarthur region, with similar sightings as far away as Cleveland in Queensland and southern California.
The sightings come after the Macarthur Chronicle last week reported UFOs drifting over Mt Annan on December 1, which divided the community into sceptics and believers.
The reader from Cleveland in Queensland, who supplied the latest UFO pictures, said he was taking out the rubbish at 11pm on December 5 when he noticed strange lights in the sky.
"The light in the sky was dancing somewhat, so I grabbed the camera and started snapping away," he said.
"The whole thing only lasted a few minutes but it wasn't until I looked more closely at the images I wondered what I had actually taken.
"There were no planes in the area at the time of taking the photos that I could see."
"It came from a north west direction and headed south east, yet it seemed far from my point of view," he said.
"The object appeared to have a tail like in the picture and then stopped and hovered for a bit before it completely disappeared in the middle of the sky.
"I am a firm believer in something extraordinary after this and there are things the government does not want us to know."
However, there was another local sighting at an Eagle Vale home on December 6, where a resident saw a bright orb move across a paddock at 3 am.
The resident, who also didn't wish to be named, said he watched the orb vibrate as it moved over the paddock.
"The light continued in a wavy motion across the top of what could be some houses or again farm land, then I lost sight, closed up my garage, went to bed and never thought much of it," he said.

Archived Case of the Week
The Secret KGB UFO Files, The Russian Crash of 1969
The details of a Russian Crash on or about 1969 are sketchy and somewhat suspect. This case comes from the so-called "Secret KGB Files," which were reportedly smuggled out of the former Soviet Union.
Reportedly, $10,000 was paid for the information. The details of these secret files were first offered to the general public on 9-13-98 as part of a TNT special titled "The Secret UFO Files of the KGB."
The show featured extraordinary film and still photographs of the UFO recovery, and also a portion of autopsy film on part of an alien body.
The event itself, according to the files, occurred in the state of Sverdlovsky, which was formerly Yekatrinburg of the USSR. The crash story follows a familiar pattern normally associated with this type of report. The fiery crash of an unknown object occurred in March 1969.
The site was secured by the Russian military, and one dead alien was found in the wreckage. The remains of the craft and alien were brought to a secure location, and the alien body was autopsied.
Both still and moving pictures were taken of the craft, its retrieval, and the alien autopsy.
The autopsy shows only an alien torso and arm. From the size of the body parts, the alien would have been an extremely small being.
The TNT special features Roger Moore, veteran actor and former James Bond, who discusses other UFO events, along with interviews with UFO experts, CIA agents, and other film.
Probably the most notable footage is from MIG gun cameras of confrontations with UFOs. There have been only a few still frames of this footage in America, and I have not been able as of this writing, 11-01-2002, to obtain the videos.
The show itself is mediocre, and its only redeeming quality is the presentation of the UFO crash story. Supposedly, the crash story was validated by secret KGB documents.
The footage at the crash site does seem to be authentic at least on several points. The truck in the film is a circa 1950 model ZIS151, which has not been used by the military for quite some time, and the truck would have been difficult to find to stage a hoax with.
Other elements of the film do not exhibit any obvious signs of a hoax, as to the movement of the soldiers, the timing of the film as to shadows, and the UFO itself.
There are also several documents shown to verify the event itself, and an eyewitness to the event who swears that the recovery mission did occur.
The footage of the autopsy film shows personnel without caps and gowns, which seemed odd to me at first, but after some research I found that this was commonplace for that era in Russia.
The furnishings in the room are acceptable, and in Russia have probably not changed much today. Three men in their 20's and 30's are performing the procedure, and one woman is taking notes.
The note taker is identified as KGB stenographer O. A. Pshonikina.
The alien's torso and arm are lying together on the table as the autopsy is performed, and there are documents shown to support the autopsy.
Although the USA-Russia relationship is much improved over a few years ago, it still lacks. Any information received is subject to translation, and often times there are problems with interpretation. It is sad there is not more cooperation between the two countries.
The case of the 1969 retrieval and autopsy are difficult to assess. Until more information is uncovered, it will remain unsubstantiated.
