Inexplicata-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology-March 26, 2006
On March 18, 2006 six witnesses reported a large light for several minutes at the property belonging to Adolfo Ziegenfhus, located in the jurisdiction of Parera, province of La Pampa (Argentina).
Ruben Ariel Lara, 37, Roberto Fernandez, 53, and four minors aged between 8 and 16 witnessed a source of light which they described as "three to four times the size of the full moon" as they walked through the fields at 22:30 hours on the date in question.
The luminosity was detected at some 3.00 meters of the place where the witnesses were located, who advised researchers that "the light appeared over the field, ascending to a considerable height before descending, engaging in these manuevers in four separate maneuvers."
Fernandez added that "it was round, spun on its vertical axis while emitting some very distinctive red, green, blue, orange, yellow and silver lights." The ascent was up to "some 60 degres over the horizon".
The witnesses, who were trapping "peludos" (armadilloes) at that time, were completely overwhelmed and frightened by the sighting, deciding to withdraw from the field and run back to the farmhouse, located some 2 kilometers from where the event occurred.
It should be noted that mutilated animals were found at this location and that in July 2005, a huge "Australian-type" water tank containing 70,000 liters of water was found completely drained from the evening to the morning.
