ARGENTINA: Two UFOs Over Ledesma

*** Two UFOs crossed the skies over Ledesma on Sunday ***
*** Event photographed by journalist; phenomenon analyzed and confirmed by Mexican "ufologist" ****

Two unidentified flying objects plowed the skies over Libertador Genera, San Martin and neighboring regions at noon on Sunday. It would seem that the phenomenon went largely unnoticed by most of the population, as there was radiant sunshine and the sky was completely clear, aside from the fact that UFOs allegedly traveled at very high speed.

The strange presence, however, was photographed by young Florencia, 12, the daughter of journalist Marcelo Pereyra, as she took photos near a canefield that lies halfway between that city in Ledesma and the so-called Lote Paulina.

Upon downloading the photos to his PC, Mr. Pereyra noticed that one of them, taken at 11 hrs, 11 minutes and 22 seconds on Sunday, May 18th, depicted two strange objects that had not been seen when the photos were taken, not even in an early picture taken two seconds earlier. It was thus that he began to expand the images and saw two flying objects at an elevation of no more than two hundred meters heading toward the Calilegua Hills, as he told our morning newspaper, of which he is also a correspondent.

Startled by the image, he published it on a website (ledesmaonline.com.ar) hoping to garner some comments or the eyewitness account of another person who may have seen the objects fly over the skies of Ledesma.

He immediately received a comment from a Mexican "ufologist", Ing. Leopoldo Lazcano Antillon, director of Grupo Daleph (josheva2022@hotmail.com) who analyzed the photos with other specialists, reaching a preliminary conclusion: "[it involves] two flying objects (of steel or metallurgical construction) at an unknown rate of speed or vibration."

The Mexican specialist also indicated his willingness to analyze any other image that may have been taken of the phenomenon that occurred near Libertador.
