ARGENTINA: LUMINOUS OBJECT OVER SANTA ISABEL
** A report from Raul Oscar Chaves **
Luis Alberto Lopez, 41, lives in Santa Isabel, a Pampean community located some 300 km west of Santa Rosa and carries out rural duties at the La Loma Alta ranch near that town, in a region known as La Puntilla.
In mid December 2006, being alone in the field and due to the intense summer heat, he decided to sleep outdoors, in the backyard of his house. At 0200 hrs. he heard the whining of his dog, sleeping nearby, and subsequently heard the sounds made by the remaining animals, prompting him to wake up immediately.
It was at that moment, still in the bed on which he rested, that he saw with certain fear and considerable astonishment, the flight of a luminous UFO over the animal pens located near the house. The object had three lights around it - one white, another yellow and another blue "...shifting toward purple". The luminous object, which did not fly over the house but managed to flood it with light, projected an intense white light over an area of approximately 50 meters, issuing "...an almost imperceptible whistling sound, like that of a wire in the wind," but no buzzing sounds whatsoever. "The silence was almost complete."
Lopez went on to say that: "...the light moved over the animal pens, lighting them from an altitude calculated at some 50/80 meters," moving at a given time to some 200 meters from the house, "where it remained static, suspended in the air" for an estimated three minutes before suddenly vanishing toward the north of the location.
This semi-arid area is thinly populated and the presence of aircraft, or fly-overs of any kind, are not customary. Lopez believes that this circumstance is of great importance when stating that the light he saw was indeed a UFO, as in his area, sightings of these are indeed customary.
