ARGENTINA: A UFO FLEET OVER ROSARIO
Date of Sighting: July 27, 2008
Place: 3 de Febrero and Cafferata Streets
[A report from witness Roberto Horacio]: I was driving in my car along Calle 3 de Febrero in a westbound direction, paying attention to the traffic, when something in the sky drew my attention. Upon looking upward, I saw several objects floating some 60 degrees over the horizon. They seemed very distant and very high in the air.
The most outstanding thing was a "sort of dirigible balloon suspended in the air" - it was shiny, white, did not make any erratic movements and remained static. To its right, and beneath it, was a lens-shaped object; above this one, was another lens-shaped object, and still another one to the right of the "balloon" - it was clear that these were parallel to the surface, all of them reflecting the sun's light on their surfaces, as if metallic. To the far right of this cluster of objects were six objects, keeping distance between each other. No apparent movement was discernible among these either.
I continued to drive, asking one of my daughters to notice what a strange dislplay this was. She was able to see it clearly.
Time went by. When I turned on Calle Constitucion, the objects remained in sight; I headed toward Calle Zeballos, where we met my other daughter, who was also able to observe them.
All of the objects were in the same position. The three of us kept watching this display of objects suspended in the air. When we made a turn on Castellanos and Zeballos, I pulled over at the corner (we had an excellent view) and the three of us were able to see that the group of objects was vanishing into the cloudless blue sky. We remained a few minutes until were saw them all disappear, with the balloon-shaped object being the last to do so. All of them seemed to be far away, much farther than the city limits of Rosario, perhaps hundreds of kilometers away and very high up, yet below the [air corridors] used by international avaition as they come in from the north or west, when they use Rosario as a vector to follow the Parana River toward Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires.
The phenomenon was visible between 5 and 8 minutes from its start at 12:12 to its very end.
If someone else saw this phenomenon please contact me.
