Peru: Anomaly Over Barranca Captured on Security Camera

Security cameras recorded a strange object in a Barranca waterfront. Some claim it was a UFO.

An unidentified flying object crossing the skies of Barranca was picked up by security cameras yesterday morning (03.12.2018) around 3:00 a.m. Images disseminated over social media show a radiant, zig-zagging luminous phenomenon over the Malecón de Chorrillos of this northern city.

The security cameras were engaged in their routine task of filming the waterfront area from the last block on Avenida Grau when they suddenly picked up this object, which could have been a UFO. The camera managed to focus on the object's oval shape before vanishing completely.

This is the first time that such a phenomenon has been recorded. According to the website of the regional newspaper "El Libertador", this video, with a duration of two minutes and fifteen seconds, has already elicited a variety of opinions. However, it has been confirmed that the image is real.

Social media users claimed it was a UFO. Others suggested that it was a psycho-social phenomenon using fake imagery and that the cameras were best used in catching criminals up to no good.

Another cybernaut stated that this phenomenon occasionally takes place in the stratosphere and that no strange object is involved. Was it a UFO? You be the judge.

Argentina: A UFO Over Rivadavia?

A reader of Tiempo de San Juan recorded the moment from the back of her house in the ATSA IV district. See the video and draw your own conclusions.

A constantly moving light - purportedly a UFO - can be seen in a video recorded by a reader of Tiempo de San Juan from the rear of her property in the ATSA IV district.

According to the woman, the light, which looks white in the video, was orange in color, sometimes changing to yellow.

She also noted that as she recorded, her cellphone was overcome by interference. An earth tremor took place no sooner than she'd finished recording. This fact was corroborated by the INPRES website (the 4.7 tremor took place at 21:00 hours).

Could this be a UFO? See the video and draw your own conclusions.

Luis Burgos: A Fire on the Ground

A Fire on the Ground
By Luis Burgos (FAO-ICOU)

Buenos Aires Provincial Route 36 is in the news again. The experiences recorded over so many decades by drivers, country people, tourists, residents, hunters and fishermen are innumerable. The region’s geography, much of it lonely, is peppered with all manner of encounters as we traverse the very heart of EL NIDO (The Nest). Small probes (diminutive luminous spheres) chasing car drivers, dozens of imprints found in its fields, frequent sightings of unidentified flying objects, lights emerging from streams, hills or cattle troughs, and an abundance of photographs serve to make up a considerable case history. And as a nod to the movie “A FIRE IN THE SKY”, which tells the abduction experience of Travis Walton in 1975 in Arizona (USA), we now move on to the specifics.

On this occasion, it was the turn for three FAO members to become direct witnesses to a strange phenomenon. Returning to the coast of Buenos Aires along Route 36 on a Sunday evening, after spending a weekend at the shore, is often tiresome, especially when we factor in exhaustion and the monotony of the trip, which can also become tense when facing a rush of drivers eager to reach their destination. A surprise, however, awaited us on the night of Sunday, March 11, 2018.

With Juan at the wheel and Lucia in the passenger’s seat, I was resting on the right side of the rear seat looking at the starry sky looking for something, as I always do when I’m not driving.

So it was that I was tracking “constant blinks” toward the shores of Rio de la Plata. One of them was an airliner following the route from Ezeiza Airport or Aeroparque, and the other – which flashed every ten to twelve seconds. It caught my attention and I looked at it fixedly, this time searching for LUCI (*), although this one was rather low to be our common friend, as it was between 15 and 20 degrees. Lucía’s voice suddenly rang out in the car compartment: “What was that?!” followed by Juan replying: “A light fell down!”

My eyes changed direction, but it was too late, since what they had seen was already over for me. My wristwatch said the time was 20:30 hours.

Lucia’s Testimony:

“We were driving along Route 36 after spending weekend fishing at Punta Rasa, right on the day before the start of high school classes. We know that many people wait until the last minute to return to their duties, so there was heavy traffic on the road to La Plata, something that always makes me concentrate fully on the road, even if I’m not at the wheel. After curve covered in dense trees and passing the entrance to Ferrari, I saw a bluish-green light that lit up slowly…like a dichromatic lamp. No sooner had it lit up did it go down, turning off before reaching the ground. The darkness and our speed kept me from ascertaining its size, but I can say that it wasn’t more than two meters overhead, some three meters from the edge of the road and between 200-300 meters away. All of this lasted between five and ten seconds. The left side of the road was covered in trees and I looked in that direction, hoping to find an explanation to what we just saw. Suddenly I saw the white light of a private home. I sought a mile marker to find out exactly where we were.”

Seconds later, I noticed a “little flame” burning near a light post in the area where the greenish blue light had been seen. I use this diminutive because it was a small fire on the grass. I instinctively thought it was an offering to the Gauchito Gil of the highways, but it wasn’t. (Note: Gauchito Gil is not officially recognized as a Christian saint, but many Catholics here do regard him as a reliable intercessor. Prayers and homages to him at his shrines regularly ask his protection, and he is regarded as a kind of Robin Hood figure who protects the poor and vulnerable. CR: On the other hand, with the grass as dry as it was, who would dare light a fire at night lest they cause a conflagration? Unless it was deliberate. Juan also saw this fleetingly, but Lucia did not. The rest of the strip was spent on questions and associations: What had they seen? Was the little fire associated with the mysterious light? All of this had happened in this 500 meter stretch separating the sighting of the enigmatic light from the little fire. The first thing that came to my mind was the incredible pursuit of the Labaronnie family in 2002 during the Gobernador Ugarte events: they were chased cross-country by a little flame! Perhaps there is no connection whatsoever, but that’s what instinct is like. Sometimes it plays tricks on us and sometimes it’s right on the mark. [Note: For more on the Gobernador Ugarte events, please visit and]

On-Site Research

Like any ufologist who prides him/herself as a FIELD RESEARCHER and not as a long-distant OPINION-MAKER or COMPILER of cases and interviews, we returned to the site of the event with Lucia barely 17 hours after it occurred, at 13:30 hours on Monday on Route 36 to find the exact location of the incident. The 92 Kilometer marker near the detour to the town of Ferrari. This was the area in question. After some back and forth, we found the “little flame” from the previous evening turned into an ELLIPSOIDAL burn mark measuring 3 meters in diameter! In other words, the little fire kept burning and singed and considerable segment of dry grass close to the barbed wire fencing, at the foot of a light post. How it didn’t run up the pole and burn it, too, remains a mystery, as well as why it didn’t burn deeper beyond the wire fence. The compass pointed toward true north without any variations. The Geiger counter shed no anomalies, but the ERD detector yielded anomalous values, almost surely produced by the electric lines overhead. The neodymium magnet yielded no positive results in the search for IRON FILINGS in the charred soil. The area had several poles of attraction – wiring, nearby mills, antennae, cattle troughs and tree lines.


As a working hypothesis, our initial association was “luminous phenomenon – fire on the ground”, but we cannot be certain of this. Seeing this luminous source near a fire on the ground would not be the wisest relationship, unless one thing (the fire) had been caused by the other (the bluish green light). There is a coincidence of times and distances. The BURN MARK is not the kind left behind by a UFO when it lands or flies over a surface, but there are indeed cases of burns caused by the approach of such objects. We are reminded of the Londres (Catamarca) incident of 1982, in which a UFO caused a wind storm that set fire to several structures in the town, and why not? The strange and controversial oval “burn mark” of El Pajarillo in 1986.

As a consequence of this, it is important to highlight that there was no interruption in the electrical supply to the farm that occupied the space between when the light was seen, the car continued on its journey and the little fire was noticed.


AN UNSOLVED MYSTERY. Just another in the complex world of ufology. Just in the same way that Demetrio had finished listening to The Beatles’s Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds as we walked along a beach, only to be confronted by LUCI (*). On this occasion, a kilometer ahead of the sighting of the “little fire”, the sign outside an evangelical church on the roadside proclaimed: FIRE FROM ON HIGH….

(*) LUCI is the name given by FAO-ICOU to a small point of light traveling at considerable altitude and following a satellite trajectory noticed in 1994 by researchers Alcides and Nelson Rocha Polanco, but also by Fabio Zerpa in 1986. Also described as a Luciérnaga ("Firefly"). THE FAO database places the first reliable sighting of this object as 17 February 1973, when it was seen by residents of La Matanza, Buenos Aires.

Argentina: Anomalous Objects Over Villa Ventana

Municipal inspectors have photographed flying objects hovering next to telephone antennae.

Claudio Heredia is the Municipal Inspector of Tornquist. During his outine assignment - surveying communications and telephone towers - something unusual drew his attention.

A cellular telephone tower sits atop a summit near Villa Ventana. Heredia and another employee were tasked with photographing and surveying the towers throughout the entire district.

When Heredia took the photo and saw it in his cellphone, he noticed two objects that caught his attention and which he did not see when pressing the shutter. At first he thought the lens might be dirty.

The faint objects can be made out despite the distance, which he estimates at some 1500 meters (4900 feet).

Villa Ventana, Sierra de la Ventana and Tornquist have been in the news repeatedly due to maniestations of unidentified flying objects.

The photos will be submitted to UFO experts for their analysis, to see whether or not UFOs are involved.

Peru: Rooftop Sighting of Strange Object in Trujillo

A disquieting YouTube video has been a source of comments on social media. This time it is a something recorded by a resident of Trujillo in the north of Peru. Thanks to the Internet, especially sites such as YouTube, we are able to form aprt of some of the most striking events, which we would hardly find credible were it not for the existence of a visual record.

Thus, it is thanks to YouTube that we can see how a strange light peers over the city's skies, possibly to explore it. This has given rise to all kinds of reactions and opinions, and in turn, to a considerable number of theories about it.

On the one hand there are those who state it is a drone or some similar device. On the other, we have those who are certain that it is a UFO.

You will notice that in spite of being daytime, the object is readily identifiable. Furthermore, it has an intense reddish glow.

Look at these images taken from You Tube and tell us: Do you think we're looking at a genuine UFO?

Mexico: "UFO" Hauled Around the City

Date: 12.27.2017
Article by Luis Baylón

Mexico: "UFO" Hauled Around the City

It is well known that the Mexican capital city's airspace is highly complex. The Benito Juarez International Airport (MCIA)'s operations in the metropolitan area of valley of Mexico are a source of complication for all flying objects.

An unidentified flying object was seen hauled around the city streets of the Roma Norte district, along the Durango Diagonal at the Cibeles Roundabout.

The video circulating on social media has gone viral this weekend.

There is still no official statement about this object.

It is possible that this "interstellar object" decided to make its way along the lightly occupied roadways this Christmas weekend. However, it doesn't seem to have found a "shortcut" to get out of Mexico City and was towed away by a wrecker.

Other stories suggest the UFO is a prop connected to the shooting of the next season of the popular X-Files TV show in Mexico.

Peru: Driver Records UFO On Dashcam

The video was uploaded by a user of the Facebook social network driving down a highway in Perú, using what appears to have been a dashcam.

Strange apparitions are often recorded and the debate over whether there are real or fake begins to rage between believers and skeptics.

This situation played itself out once more on Facebook when a subscriber decided to upload a video of what he claims to have witnessed.

As it turns out, he was driving along a road in Perú and suddenly became aware of the presence of "an immense spaceship" in the sky. To his astonishment, and aware that his dashcam was plugged in and operating, he decided to chase the object. The images depict the UFO moving from one side of the road to another.

Look at the footage and draw your own conclusions.

A Report by Iván Gómez

Mexico: Unusual Phenomenon Over Jalisco Dubbed "Giant UFO'

Beings from other worlds seem to be on the lookout for developments on planet Earth and it is therefore quite common to see them in the sky. The most recent of these was a UFO seen over Mexico - an event that has gone completely viral on the Internet. According to the Perú portal, a startling viral video on YouTube has been the source of much comment among cybernauts, and no explanation has been found for the phenomenon in the heavens.

It all started with a recording that showed the west of Mexico City.

According to statements made by the La República website, events of this sort are commonplace on YouTube. However, this manifestation had something unusual. Unlike most cases, the alleged UFO engaged in unusual maneuvers in the sky, causing fear among the citizenry.

Some locals said that that it wasn't a spacecraft, but rather a colossal being, since upon using their zoom lenses, they could see something looking like legs, arms and even a head that moved strangely as the object remained aloft.

Users stated that this recording was among the strangest in relation with alleged UFO sightings.
