Argentina: UFO Fires “Rays” Over Rosario

A video shows a UFO that fires rays over Rosario. It was recorded in late 2007 by a young man who exited the Alto Rosario Shopping Center and was made known by a prestigious researcher from Victoria. The expert stated that similar phenomena had been seen in Germany and England.

The video shows a light in the sky that releases flashes against the ground every so often. “I recorded it with a friend’s cellphone in Rosario, outside the Alto Rosario Shopping Center. The object made slow movements at first, beyond my unsteady hold of the cellphone. But when I saw the video in detail, I saw that the strange light, which several people took for a satellite, was flashing lights toward the ground. I calculate that the light was some 200 meters away, not very far. After recording it for a long time, it began moving toward the Monument to the Flag until it vanished. Personally, it was fantastic. Something that I discuss and people won’t believe. In short, the subject is that the same light, or a similar one, was seen again late at night later that week.”

This was the note that accompanied the video, sent to Silvia Perez Simondini, a renowned UFO researcher who works in the city of Victoria, Entre Rios.

The recording was made on December 7, 2007 and Perez Simondini received only a few days ago, when the young man who took it learned of the existence of Vision Ovni, the center with which she works.

“We were aware that these UFOs fire rays against the ground. It had occurred in Germany and England. Therefore, when he sent me the recording, I couldn’t believe it. It’s different to what we’re used to seeing. They’re laser-type beams. The boy managed to film five such beams,” said the researcher to the Diez Puntos Radio Program on Radio 2.

Perez Simondini maintained that specialist Salvatore Carta, whose expertise is sought by researchers world-round, certified the authenticity of the phenomenon. The researcher added that the increase in phenomena of this sort is remarkable, adding that she has received 50 UFO reports in January of this year alone.
