LUMINOUS OBJECT SEEN OVER EL AVILA, CARACAS
** Sighting coincided with political demonstration**

CARACAS, 08.20.03---After midnight on Tuesday, August 20, 2003, while groups opposing the government of President Hugo Chavez manifested their support of a possible recall in the streets of Caracas, three persons were able to witness the displacement of a luminous object fluying over legendary "Cerro El Avila"

The event was recorded at 12:30 a.m. when the three youths were headed to their homes located within the El Pedregal sector of the La Castellana urbanization after watching the fireworks used in the political demo, which had ended shortly before the sighting.

According to one of the witnesses, who preferred anonymity to avoid ridicule within his social and professional circle, the object constantly changed colors and remained suspended in the air for a few seconds before hiding behind the mountain after a powerful "zigzagging" motion. This is not the first time that this type of phenomenon has occurred in Venezuela while social turmoil occurs in several parts of the country: in April 2002, during the abortive coup de etat against President Chavez, CNN's cameras recorded the transit of a UFO over the city of Caracas at the same time journalist Harris Whitbeck covered the conflict taking place in Venezuela at the

8 months later, new UFO reports would surface in the venezuelan capital while an explosive and indefinite work stoppage affected the entire country.
