From: Scott Corrales <lornis1.nul> Date: Fri, 26 Aug 2011 14:38:56 -0400 Archived: Sat, 27 Aug 2011 16:22:11 -0400 Subject: This Week At INEXPLICATA The Journal of Hispanic Ufology August 26, 2011 Argentina: The First Multiple Daytime CE-3 By Diego Sanchez, Luis Burgos and FAO Team Introduction Back in 1999, as humanoid activity dwindled in Argentina over the course of the years, a notable encounter took place in the territory of Buenos Aires, with two significant distinctions: the first being that it occurred in *broad daylight* and the second being the *number of humanoid entities*involved. Both of these facts are outstanding in the domestic case histories, or at least that is what emerges from the 4000 cases in our database (from 1900 to 2008) and we are therefore able to state that it is the*first daytime humanoid case*, as earlier cases of this sort showed one, two or three visitors during daylight hours, no more. Geographic Location The exact site of the episode is National Route 5, Kilometer 465, beyond the rail crossing that joins the Pehuelches and La Zanja stations, both of which are communities of the Trenque Lauquen borough, located in Western Buenos Aires Province, near the border of the province of La Pampa, 23 kilometers from the county seat. The Events At 16:30 hours on August 25, 1999, Mr. Carlos Colon, an automobile mechanic, was driving his 1998 Chevrolet pickup along the aforementioned route, after having been in a field of the region. After crossing the train tracks, he began to feel a buzzing sound on his radio, which was set to an FM station. He first blamed it on the cellphone he'd connected to the outlet, but the buzzing became more intense, almost unbearable, and comparable to "a bunch of mosquitoes in one's ear". He also thought it could be the vehicle's alternator. In this state of affairs, and after turning a curve, he remembers pulling onto the road's shoulder without stopping the engine. He tried changing frequencies unsuccessfully. He was intrigued by a movement to his right, and when he raised his eyes, he saw something between the windshield and the door window =96 "something" that was heading toward him at high speed. Instinctively, Colon tried to get out of the pickup truck. At this point he was looking between the spare tire and the passenger compartment (sic) when he became aware of five figures in white... The Entities These silhouettes looked like people, but with a very strange appearance, mainly from the shoulders up. They stood approximately 2.50 meters tall and their anthropomorphic shape, similar to that of humans, was not identical. These beings were contained within a screen (from which they never emerged) similar to a movie screen or a parabolic screen, perhaps a meter taller than the figures themselves. Fifty meters away from the witness, this "screen" slowed down, stopping no more than 15 meters distant from Colon, who was able to make out the height of the silhouettes, as he had to raise his eyes to see them more clearly. The intruders were all together, standing side by side in line, with drooping arms and open legs, always sliding within that "screen". According to the eyewitness, the entities exchanged glances, making small movements with their heads, and looking at the protagonist for an instant. He was unable to make out any noses, mouths or eyes =96 only a black spot where their heads would have been. Their bodies were white. The humanoids stood thus for a while, eventually clasping each others' arms to form a circle, bowing their heads inward, as if joining them. The "screen" immediately started to shrink, turning into a dark grey cone. According to Colon, what kept him from having a perfect view of the situation was a sort of fog in a whirlwind, as if they were behind some sort of translucent glass. Everything vanished suddenly after this...it vanished as though a TV set had been turned off. The witness was left looking upward, looking to where the visitors had vanished, but was unable to see anything at all. Only the fields and he remained. Later Colon was more than startled when he heard the pickup truck's radio operating. The truck was on the shoulder and several meters away. Having no idea of how he got there, Colon found himself beside the barbed wire fence where the beings had been stationed. Fear overcame him at that moment. He ran to his Chevrolet, sat down and made a hasty return to the city of Trenque Lauquen, looking to one side and another. After having passed La Zanja, he started to react. He didn't know why he was driving so fast, as no one pursued him, and he started to feel an unpleasant sensation of weariness, similar to the ache felt after the flu. He ascribed it to a spike in blood pressure, but a doctor would subsequently tell him that it was a result of stress. According to Colon, the encounter lasted "between two and seven minutes" judging by the time it takes to cover the distance he periodically travels to Trenque Lauquen. He reached the clinic feeling somewhat dizzy and with blurry vision. His blood pressure was 14.7, when the customary reading is between 16.1 to 18.1. Upon leaving, he headed for his workshop, where employees noted that he was acting strange, which he explained as malaise. He immediately crossed the street and went home, telling his wife about the event and feeling very anxious. He was unable to dismiss the memory of his experience from his mind. Two days after the event, he visited his doctor. An EKG was performed and his blood pressure was checked. Everything in his body was normal. Therefore, there was only on thing left to do: return to the encounter site. And so he did. To his surprise, he found the paperwork of the Chevalier parcel receipt; with the change he carried within it (sic). Things began to become clearer for Colon, and he started looking for prints, but found his own footprints more than anything else. Correlative Ufology Three events are essential when evaluating this incident: a. Days later, in a conversation with Mr. Avila, the owner of the field Colon had departed from prior to the encounter, the former told him that right after he left, he tried to contact tractor operators in his area and was unable to do so, as there was a persistent buzzing on the radio that made communications impossible; b. Peasants from an adjacent field stated that while performing their duties, the saw a large light stationed in the vicinity, which later headed south; c. That same afternoon, at 15:45 hours, that is to say 45 minutes before Colon's encounter with the beings, a trucker and his companion, headed for Santa Rosa (La Pampa) were able to make out some glowing objects to the right of the road, facing the La Zanja station. The trucker ascribed the vision to cereal railcars lit by the sun. These alleged railcars appeared to be crossing the road, since they had not yet entered the curve. After turning the curve, they asked each other: "what happened to the railcars?" They stopped and looked around. They were all alone in the field. Comparative Ufology The entities described by Colon are reminiscent of the May 29, 1986 case involving Oscar Flores, 28, at the entrance to the Don Tomas Lagoon in La Pampa. In this case, the witness, who I had the chance to interview thanks to an excellent interview by Quique Mario of the CEUFO group, found two visitors within his house at 00:30 hours. These intruders were also tall, more than 2 meters, and only parts of their faces were visible in their form-fitting suits. The beings appeared to sport medallions and belts, elements that Colon did not see. Also in La Pampa, Flores was able to see the UFO (over the top of some eucalyptus trees) and a persistent buzzing sound in the air. We managed to cross paths with Flores in one of the recent UFO conventions organized by CEUFO. He is in excellent health. Background on Multiple Encounters With regard to close encounters involving large numbers of occupants, the Colon incident can be placed within the top ten Argentinean events, outdone only by four contact experiences, and all of these of a nocturnal nature (hence the importance of this daytime event): - Azul, Buenos Aires: Ufologists in the nation's capital report an incident in which several residents of this locality witness the movement of seven (7) beings corresponding to Type III (Tall) on the evening of 13 August 1994, near Route 51. - Laboulaye (Cordoba): Shortly before midnight on 2 December 1991, three youths from that region of Cordoba saw a luminous object landing a few meters from their home, disgorging 15 small entities. They walked single-file and appeared to have "flashlights on their heads" that lit the ground in front of them. The characters milled around the vicinity of the house for several hours. We investigated this incident on-site only a few days after it occurred. - Pergamino (Bs.As.): This incident was also investigated on- site in the company of Prof. Jose Marengo, a consultant to FAO in the 80s. Four young men from the city had reported the presence of 6 small, strange entities to the police. The beings in the vicinity of the Club de Viajantes of the Gral. San Mart=EDn district. Other sightings involving 6 beings also occurred in the nearby town of Rancagua in late October and early November 1988. - Crotto (Bs.As.): A record-breaking entity case occurred in this community near Olavarr=EDa, specifically at the Mi Recuerdo ranch. Around 03:00 hrs. on 17 November 1969, Aquilo Ramon Acosta had an extraordinary experience when he found 17 mysterious beings, good-sized and wearing reddish outfits, exploring his property for an extended period of time, bearing "flashlight-like" devices in their hands, shooting off red beams of light. - Olavarr=EDa (Bs.As.): In the early hours of 29 April 1994, Mario Trevisan managed to photograph over twenty strange entities walking in front of the dim light outside a house on the outskirts of the city. The astonishing speed with which they moved was the most significant aspect of the case. This was a remarkable visual document that we were able to recover after 14 years of follow-up work. Please see the report and video at CIENCIA OVNI (www.ciencia-ovni.com.ar) Conclusions Colon calmed down some time after his experiences. His blood pressure stabilized and he had no further arrhythmias. He was only left with some questions: he is still unsure if the pickup's engine stalled, or if he was stopped by the entities. Nor could he remember how he reached the barbed wire fence. He is certain that he was "controlled" during the duration of the experience, and the entities simply allowed him to watch the situation. There is evidently a "missing time" factor that has still not surfaced in Colon (and which is typical in such cases). UFO sightings were periodically reported in Trenque Lauquen and its outlying communities, before and after the events discussed here. Everything points to the fact that the witness experienced an extraordinary situation that is full of information for ufology. Tall humanoids (Type III) returned to Argentina, giving the small Type I humanoids a break, as these appear to have "taken over" close encounters of the third kind. CREDITS: - Sr. Diego Grimberg, Bs.

(2008) Mexico's El Universal newspaper presents an interesting account in its "Society" section: an article by reporter Denise Mackenzie dated August 26, 2011 that suggests that a UFO flew over the pyramid of Santa Cecilia at the end of musical performance. "Local residents have apparently experienced sightings of unidentified flying object -- better known as UFOs -- and these witnesses have uploaded videos to the YouTube network," she writes. One of these images was taken in the spring of 2008 (April 10, to be specific)and presents an object flying over the ancient structure during a performance by Jorge Reyes, acclaimed for his performances of pre-Hispanic music. "The unidentified flying object distracts some of the concertgoers," continues Mackenzie, "and the spider-like formation moves around the Tlalnepantla pyramid in a unique manner, maintaining a constant speed, eventually vanishing from the lens of the camera that recorded it. The video can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=3Dplayer_embedded&v=3D6v1IY204f Xo POSTED BY INEXPLICATA AT 7:59 AM WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 24, 2011 Cryptozoology: Giant Squid Found Dead Source: Criptozoolog=EDa en Espana Date: 23 August 2011 Spain: Giant Squid Found Dead South of Tenerife By Javier Resines A camera crew recording the dolphin colony that occupies the waters to the south of Tenerife (Canary Islands) has located the remains of a giant squid floating some two miles from the shore. The specimen of Architheuthis was found facing the cliff known as Los Gigantes by a camera crew making a documentary on warm- water dolphins, according to Rafa Herrero with the Aquawork corporation, which specializes in the filming and study of the seas in the Canary Islands. The animal was well-preserved in spite of missing part of its tentacles and eyes, but retained its original pigmentation. Professor Angel Guerra of the Spanish Oceanography Institute believes that it may be an adult female measuring 8 meters long (26.5 feet) if its tentacles were intact. "A female Architheuthis may measure two and a half meters in its hood, which would suggest a total length of 18 to 20 meters (59-65 ft.). Its eye is the largest in the animal kingdom, resembling a handball," adds Herrero. The unexpected encounter took place last month, when the camera crew found several pardelas (shearwaters, puffinus griseus) flying over the open sea, a sign that there are dolphins or other creatures present, or some food floating on the surface. When approaching the site, they found the birds were pecking away at the remains of a large carcass belonging to a giant squid, an animal that is also an occasional prey to the tropical dolphin (grampus griseus). Specialists collected samples of the suckers and the beak to send to the Society for Cetacean Studies in the Canarian Archipelago (SECAC). The team is filming a 55 minute documentary funded by the Mapfre Guanarteme Foundation on the tropical dolphins of southwestern Tenerife, a project that commenced last February and will continue until June 2012. The depth of the water at Los Gigantes, where the squid was found, is between 800 and 1200 meters, which allows the tropical dolphins to descend constantly to feed. This is an area rich in marine life, especially cephalopods, which form part of the food chain of large marine mammals, including the cachalot whale. (Translation (c) 2011, Scott Corrales, IHU.

This is what Mr. Mario Enrique Gonzalez told me: "That evening, while listening to Victor Camacho's radio program ("Los Desvelados"=96 the night owls), I looked through my window and noticed the presence of three objects near the Moon. I had my cellphone handy, listening to the radio over it, so the first thing I did was activate the photo function, as I didn't want to stop listening to the show. I took several photos, but only the first one turned out well. At that time my adult nephew went out, and ask me what [those things] were. He only got to see two of them =96 one had already gone away. They became tiny, reddish, then boom! They were gone. No detonation or sound whatsoever could be heard. We could only hear dogs barking; they were very upset. That's how it happened, professor. I'm telling it to you in broad strokes. It was on Thursday, 11 August at 1:38 a.m. in Villa de Jilotzingo." Mr. Gonzalez is a renowned skywatcher. He has documented the phenomenon on several occasions, mainly in communities of eastern Morelos State, such as Tepoztlan and Cuernavaca.

Special thanks to Prof. Ana Luisa Cid) POSTED BY INEXPLICATA AT 9:37 AM Mexico: 19th Century Mysteries In the late 19th century, Mexico emerged from a turbulent seventy year period of warfare, civil disturbance and foreign occupation to become a well-ordered, prosperous nation under the firm hand of the dictator Porfirio D=EDaz. In the nearly three decades that D=EDaz ruled Mexico, his country rubbed shoulders economically with France and Germany, although his centralized policies created unrest and discontent that would eventually lead to the 1911 revolution. Growth was not restricted to industry and finance; the sciences and arts prospered as well. Interest in the supernatural was also to be found, mainly among the well-read leisure classes. The first "sociedades esp=EDritas" (spiritist lodges) had opened their doors by 1870, and a "spiritist newspaper" had been established in 1868 in the city of Guadalajara by a former general, Refugio Gonzalez. Ironically, Francisco I. Madero, the president elected after Porfirio D=EDaz, was an avowed spiritist who'd benefitted from the openess of his predecessor's tenure, who had also been a Freemason. A portrait of D=EDaz in masonic gear hangs in Alexandria's National Masonic Temple =96 proof perhaps of the questing intellectual and metaphysical spirit of the times. Astronomer Morris K. Jessup, whose study of strange crater-like formations in Mexico formed part of his interest in the UFO phenomenon, characterized the final decades of the 19th century as the "Incredible Decade" due to the heightened amount of UFO activity world-wide during this point in time. Renowned Mexican Fortean researcher Dr. Rafael A. Lara has carefully chronicled some of the strange phenomena which occurred in Mexico during the same period of time chronicled by Jessup. On March 5, 1871, the state of Oaxaca, was puzzled by the appearance of "a burst of light followed by a clap of thunder." Since it occurred in the early morning hours (11:30 a.m.), the sun should have outshone it, yet it was so readily visible that its size was calculated at two and a half rods long by one rod in diameter. "The frequency with which these incidents have taken place in the past year is truly remarkable," reads the entry in the almanac known asCalendario Galvan del Mas Antiguo. In the wake of a heavy rainstorm on January 19, 1873, red stains were found both on the grass and rocks in Papantla, Veracruz. This has been attributed to the fact that water raining down was actually red in color. Ten days later, on January 29, there was a shower of mercury over the village of San Ignacio in Sinaloa. Samples of the material, allegedly collected for posterity, were lost in the turmoil of the revolutionary war. Three months later, on March 27, 1873, a meteor passed over the city of Queretaro between 6 and 7 p.m., leaving a glowing wake that issued sparks and roiled into twin clouds which later exploded like a bomb, scattering fiery fragments in every direction. An entry for November 7, 1878 states that for ten days, the town of Tula de Tamaulipas has witnessed "the passage of an infinite number of flies from noon until five o'clock in the evening." According to the almanac, the flies' shape was very strange and they dropped strands of material resembling gossamer. More strange phenomena troubled Mexico as it entered into the 1880's. On September 2, 1881, a brilliant meteor crossed the skies from one end to another, traversing the Veracruz meridian. Its light was greenish and its wake formed a white "head". Green meteors or fireballs would fall in the American Southwest during the 1950's leading many to associate them with the UFO phenomenon. Three different kinds of hailstone fell over Zongolica, Veracruz on May 9, 1883: one shaped like stars, others square, still other rounded like peaches and with a hole in the middle...the hailstorm over Oaxaca was notable for the fall of several chunks of extraordinary shapes, larger than has ever been seen before. Jose Vasconcelos -- father of the "indigenismo" movement and author of the landmark La raza cosmica =96 was one of those landmark figures that the 19th century appeared to produce with ease in every single country. This philosopher and metaphysician, equally at home in Washington D.C. or in Paris, where he spent his exile, retold an unusual experience in his 1935 autobiography Ulises criollo (A Creole Ulysses). Raised in Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Vasconcelos attended school in neighboring Eagle Pass, Texas, and the transnational, transcultural atmosphere permeated his work and thoughts. Among his experiences at an early age was an encounter in 1890 with something seemingly out of this world. One morning, while returning from Texas across the Rio Grande, young Vasconcelos and his parents and siblings were startled by the sight of points of light that became larger and wider as they approached, turning into disks with a reddish golden hue. He thought at first that the objects were simply an aftereffect of being blinded by sun, emerging from the dense morning fog. All five witnesses agreed that the disks spun and turned into "orbs of light, rising and falling over the plain," adding: "It made us shout for joy, as those who looked upon a revelation." On November 9, 1894, the townsfolk of Zacatlan, Puebla were distressed by the appearance of a tremendously large bird that which had been reported elsewhere in the area. The almanac further indicates that "a hurricane blew a multitude of never- seen-before birds from the unexplored Chila Mountains, it is not impossible that some monster, such as the one being seen these days, should figure among their number."
