Argentina: UFO Over Santa Rosa - La Pampa
Date: 14 January 2008
Temperature: 30 degrees Centigrade
Number of Witnesses: 4
Sighting Duration: 25 seconds
Sounds During Sighting: None
The evening of Monday, January 14 was completely clear and as is normal for this time of year, the temperature was steady at 30 degrees C. Four people identified as MM, SS, OM and ED were in Zona Quinta in the southwest of Santa Rosa, enjoying a wading pool. One of the witnesses (SS) was lying at the edge of the pool and saw a light to the southwest that immediately drew his attention. It was far larger than any star.
The witness (SS) makes the others aware of the strange light and OM, who was nearest to the house, grabbed his binoculars and went to the front of the property in order to follow the object. Once he was able to locate the target with his field glasses, he was startled to see not one light but several (a total of four, which looked like a single light without binoculars).
From MM's story, satellites can always been cleary seen traveling in all directions. In his opinion, and that of the other witnesses, it wasn't a satellite, since he could tell the object was a low altitude (some 600 meters, "it passed right over our heads").
A noteworthy fact of his testimony was the halo of light that surrounded the object, an additional source of light that all of the witnesses noticed.
