URUGUAY: EXPLOSIONS OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN AND TRIANGULAR UFO

Julio Degeneve and Daniel Padilla, coordinators of the COLOVNI group, inform you that we are making inquiries with regard to an event that ocurred last night, that is, Thursday, October 26 around 23:05 hours. Two explosions rocked the cities of Colon (Argentina) and Paysandu in the neighboring shores of the Republic of Urugay. According to many eyewitness accounts, the apparent epicenter of this explosion was between both cities, with a more southerly location closer to the city of Paysandu (Uruguay). The event drew media attention, and in their questioning of government officials, such as the military detachment in Concepcion, Uruguay, the response was that "they were not engaged in maneuvers" although the media had already discussed this possibility. Some witnesses in Colon claimed that a powerful light could be seen toward the southeast of the city. The detonation was so powerful that it allegedly shattered windows in the city of Paysandu (Uruguay), as well as in Colon, but with fewer cases.

On the evening of that day, we were finishing up the "Enigma Virtual" radio show in which were discussing the considerable number of reports claiming that several witnesses had been able to see a gigantic triangular craft flying over the city without making a sound and at low altitude. Witnesses who contacted the radio show claimed having seen it between 03:00 and 04:00 in the morning flying in a South-North direction and at very slow speed, such that they were able to observe the lights beneath it, which were blue, white and yellow.

We can now say that we have begun requesting reports from people in both cities in order to cross-check stories and specifically locate the site of the explosion. Furthermore, we knew that on Thursday morning several people had contacted Radio LT11 in the city of Concepcion, Uruguay, on the Mary Charrier radio show, to report having seen several anomalous lights flying over the outskirts of the city and the city itself; they were inquiring if there were several airplanes flying over the area. We will continue our inquiries and keep you informed.
