VENEZUELA: UFOs OVER CARACAS
Imposing and majestic, El Avila, a mythic mountain of dense
jungles and crystalline waterfalls, has become one of the sites
of highest interest to researchers, scientists, spital guides
and curiosity-seekers, all of whom are driven by the intense UFO
activity which has emerged in recent years in the mountain's
vicinity, visiting it to glean greater information on the
development of this elusive phenomenon.
New UFO sightings over Cerro El Avila have been made from
various locations within the [Caracas] metropolitan area. On
October 21, 2003, Mrs. Ligia Peralta reported seeing a strange
luminous object of large proportions which was flying over the
outlying sections of the "La Julia" sector of Cerro El Avila in
The event took place at approximately 07:30 PM while Mrs.
Peralta was making a phone call, leaning against one of the
windows surrounding her dwelling, located on the eighth floor of
a residential complex east of the Venezuelan capital. Peralta
remarked that the strange object "appeared out of nowhere" and
was endowed with a very bright white light; it moved around the
area for a few seconds before vanishing from sight as it flew
over the mountain's summit.
In another report received, it was said that at 0:200 PM on
October 25, five people followed the maneuvers of a circular
object--black in color--which moved dizzyingly over a densely
populated Caracas suburb on the slopes of Cerro El Avila.
According to this report, two of the eyewitnesses stated that
the object "appeared suddenly" and moved quickly "in a straight
line" and far above the peak of a mountain adjacent to the "La
Pastora" sector, also in Caracas, before losing itself between
the clouds and vanishing from sight. Likewise, in a third report
received on Saturday, October 25, Raquel Rivero reported on the
maneuvers of another object near Mount Avila, this time from the
"Mari Perez" urbanization.
The event occurred only a few minutes before seven o'clock. The
witness stated that she was near the Chacaito subway station
when she grew aware of an intense "whitish blue" light which was
static in the sky, distinguishing itself from other heavenly
bodies for its "great size and luminosity". Finally, Rivero
noted that after having observed the phenomenon for no more than
5 to 10 minutes, it dimmed gradually until it faded away before
the startled eyes of the onlookers.
