Costa Rica: Pilot Records UFO

Impressive! A video recorded in Costa Rica has gone viral on YouTube. What is the reason for this? It turns out that an airline pilot captured the very moment at which the UFO flew in the distance.

The pilot, whose name is Jose Daniel Araya, wanted to record the sunset over Costa Rica on his cellphone without thinking he would capture a UFO. The images have gone around the world and have been seen millions of times on Youtube.

At first, the pilot did not clearly see the UFO and wanted to be certain. Upon going home to inspect the recorded images, he was startled to find the UFO was clearly visible.

Faced with this mystery, the pilot visited astronomer José Alberto Villalobos and UFO expert Alexis Astúa, who said it was in fact an 'extraterrestrial spacecraft'. As of this moment the video has over a millon views on YouTube and is a viral phenomenon. Do you think these images are true. Leave your comments and share them on all of your social networks.

Argentina: Remembering the 1968 UFO Fly-By over José Marmol

Argentina: Remembering the 1968 UFO Fly-By Over José Mármol

It was over fifty years ago that UFOs were seen in the airspace over the district of Alte. Brown.

The UFO phenomenon exists in our region and is well-documented. We ascertained that many of our fellow resideents had sightings. They do not speak of them, as these are matters considered private and the source of much derision. Silence is therefore the rule.

An event ocurred in Almirante Brown well over forty years ago and it involved the presence of a UFO fleet seen by the townspeople of José Mármol one summer night in 1968. According to reports, a group noticed the presence of white spots in the sky, appearing among the clouds and moving swiftly, but still retaining a boomerang-like formation. Townspeople took to the streets pointing at the sky, feeling a collective shiver at being in the presence of the unknown.

Concepción Vitulano, now elderly, says the following: "I couldn't believe it. My children jumped for joy, shouting: 'The Martians are coming!' but I had my misgivings. It was the only time I ever saw something like it."

Nowadays, the locals do not discuss the subject much, and the few whor remain recall it as something very strange that happened one summer night, and which they will never forget.

Mass sightings are neither common nor frequent. This incident in José Mármol was among few in the locality, and even the entire region.

Spain: UFO Reported Over Brenes (Seville)

Several witnesses saw an oval-shaped object that put forth considerable light with bright flashes, moving parallel with the horizon.

The summer of 2017 has been particularly active as regards aerial mysteries and unknown phenomena. The UFOs of yesterday remain as current as ever and materialize yet again to fill us with wonder and disbelief.

This is precisely how the protagonist of a UFO encounter in the locality of Brenes felt on the morning of August 2nd. It was something so incredible and unknown that she could hardly credit what he was seeing. Her name is Sandra and she witnessed something astonishing at 8:30 a.m.: "I was on my way to work and took my daughter over to my mother. It was then when I saw a light-emitting source in the sky. I can almost tell you that it was oval; issuing bright flashes even though it was daylight. The light was irregular and was in view for nearly a minute. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I watched it carefully and saw how its size decreased and became smaller until it disappeared."

Sandra, visibly excited, recalls every second of this sighting. "I'm not easily shocked. My partner and I love these subjects, and a while ago, we spent some time in Gibraltar and saw three lights that left our jaws hanging. But this morning's event has been truly impressive." The witness called another person - Jesús, a worker at a nearby bar, who jokingly said: "They're here!" but when he saw the luminous form, realized they were both looking at a truly extraordinary phenomenon.

Fernando Romero, driving from Tocina to Seville around the same time, also saw the mysterious object: "It was a large luminous form, a point of light that stood out in the sky, having the apparent size of a large marble. The object, or whatever it was, flew parallel to the horizon, slowly. I thought it was an airplane approaching Seville with its lights on, but when I looked more closely, I saw this wasn't the case. The light grew and shrank intermittently and stopped. It was very odd. Then, some thirty seconds later, it disappeared and left me stunned. I don't believe in this UFO and alien stuff, but I can tell you that was something very strange."

Confirmation of the nature of the sighting was sought with Seville Flight Control, which confirmed having no air traffic matching what was seen by the witnesses. The same happened with military flight controllers. No astronomical phenomenon matches the nature of this UFO sighting. Nor is the passage of International Space Station (ISS) a valid explanation. By strict definition, these witnesses saw a UFO.

The astronomical phenomena for the month of August will be the traditional "Lágrimas de San Lorenzo" (St. Lawrence's Tears) around the 12th (Perseids), also bearing in mind the partial lunar eclipse on the 7th of this month. The UFO phenomenon remains present in the heavens over Seville. It is a timeless phenomenon that appears before witnesses at any time of day and which can shatter preconceived notions about "things seen in the sky whose real nature we do not know". The Brenes UFO almost surely marks the start of other sightings in Seville.
