In January 1976, when he was fifteen years old, Carlos Ferguson was on his way back from playing soccer with some friends when he saw something in the Saavedra district that would mark his destiny. What he claims having seen is the same thing that =93over a dozen local residents and drivers=94 reported: a disk-shaped metallic object measuring three meters in diameter, flying over the terrace of a home in broad daylight and at a stone=92s throw away.=94 Since then, Carlos =96 founder of the Red Argentina de Ovnilog=EDa =96 has spent his life trying to understand what he saw that afternoon, and life has just given him an opportunity that he did not even dream of. Carlos Ferguson, who lives in La Plata and works for the logistics office of the Dept. of Education, is one of the five civilians summoned by the Argentinean Air Force to constitute the Comisi=F3n de Estudio de Fen=F3menos Aeroespaciales (CIFA). Created on May 26, this agency represents the formalization of a phenomenon which, while raising questions, has been formally investigated by many other countries: France, Russia, the UK, U.S.A, Brasil and Uruguay among others. But Ferguson isn=92t the only resident of La Plata asked to form part, ad honorem, of the new commission. Accompanying him is Carlos Iurchuk, a 41-year-old systems analyst who has spent fifteen years researching the UFO phenomenon. Both form part of a team that includes pilots, weathermen, radar techs and satellite positioning techs and other experts under the command of Capt. Mariano Mohaupt. Far from attempting to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life, his mission is aimed at =93scientific investigation of reports that involve the domestic airspace, and which have increased over recent years.=94 As the Argentinean Air Force indicates: =93the number of persons claiming to have seen UFOs is far greater than anyone would imagine.=94 Translation (c) 2011, S.
