At 21:05 hours on October 10, 2006, residents of the Quintas Sur Sector, located between Santa Rosa and Toay, reported seeing a great light which vanished unexpectedly.
According to witnesses, upon leaving their home and remaining outside, chatting on the sidewalk, they saw how "a luminous spot appeared suddenly out of nowhere" appearing static for several minutes. It then "increased its size gradually until it reached a dimension or volume 10 times greater than the planet Venus at that hour."
The witnesses also noted that after having reached that size, "the luminosity began to contract, initiating a slow movement in a south-southeastern direction until it vanished."
The sighting had a duration of 10-15 seconds and the luminosity was "orange/yellow in color, with irregular borders like waves" and was located some 75 degrees over the horizon. Witnesses added that the light source "gave the impression of having rotated and aimed its light toward where they [the witnesses] were standing, prior to beginning its movement."
The witnesses (a man and a woman) are competent adults, living in the aforementioned sector of the capital city of La Pampa.
