Argentina: Alleged UFO Photographed Over Concordia
The image was taken in the downtown area of this city in Entre Rios. It shows a strange object between the two crosses on domes of the St. Anthony of Padua Cathedral at the heart of the city.
A tourist claims having photographed a UFO that disappeared shortly after.
This incident is the second of its nature that has taken place in Entre Rios during the same week, when a man also photographed a strange object while taking a picture of his teenage daughter.
This new photo was taken at noon on Friday on a sunny day, using a notebook computer with a built-in photo camera, and from the heart of Plaza 25 de Mayo in Concordia, the second most important location in the province.
This image, published by the local El Heraldo newspaper, shows a grayish object between both "tips" of the St. Anthony of Padua Cathedral, located in front of the main square of this community, in northeast Entre Rios. Likewise, another photo taken seconds later does not show the object. The photographer interprets this as evidence that the object was moving at high speed.
The synchronicity between both photos is reinforced by the clock that can be seen on one of the Cathedral's belfries. Both images show the time as 11:45 in the morning.
While a similar phenomenon had not been known in Concordia, the nearby Uruguayan city of Salto have long believed in the existence of a "ufodrome" nearby, to judge from constant reports of unknown objects in the sky.
The other case [was the one] that occurred in Parana on October 21st of this year, when a man named Miguel Angel Osuna photographed his 15-year-old daughter in Parana's Parque Urquiza. When Osuna took the image file to a photo shop to have it enlarged, the shop's employee noticed the presence of an elongated object that appeared to move swiftly.
