ARGENTINA: UFO REPORTED OVER POTRERO DE LOS FUNES
by Pablo Oro
The event occurred on Sunday around 21:00 hours and was seen by a group of people that included employees from the Hotel Potrero de los Funes. They claim having seen a large silver light the size of a car over Quebrada de los Condores. A couple who owns a crafts shop in the Hotel was the first to see the object. They later informed everyone else in the lodging and the sighting was shared by all.
"They all saw it - the reception desk crew and some people who were also staying at the hotel," said the man named Juan Torres.
According to the report, the UFO "was over the mountain for over 20 minutes and since the night was clear, it was easily seen."
They initially speculated that it was an airplane, but given the object's passivity and its light, they realized they were looking at something else.
"A light appeared suddenly and was surrounded by other lights. It seemed to head toward the hotel, but it remained stationary and then began turning on and off. Its intensity increased and decreased until it extinguished itself, leaving only a mark in the sky," said another hotel employee.
