Ufos and Paranormal Phenomena


Two Agronomists Photographed UFO Over Santiago Field, Argentina

Posted: 30 Apr 2013 09:05 AM PDT

The two men were conducting a land survey when they discovered that one of their photos of the sky, pointing northward, did not resemble a bird or a plane, but an inverted dish.
 
SANTIAGO DEL ESTERO, 25 Apr (NA) – Two agronomists claim having photographed a UFO while conducting a survey of a field near Pampa Múyoj in Santiago del Estero.
Antonio Pappalardo and Roberto Aguila were startled when they returned to the office to look over the photographs that constitute their work, performed in the middle of siesta time.
 
"We came to do a survey and took a series of photos to convey the visual information and analyze it back at the office. At around three o'clock in the afternoon, without looking through the viewfinder, I took some photos with my (cellphone) camera but without noticing anything strange. I submitted them to my boss, who noticed there was something odd , looking like an unidentified flying object," one of the surveyors told the Diario Panorama newspaper.
 
The cellphone photo was taken from a moving pickup truck by the driver himself, holding the cellphone over his companion, who happened to be his boss.
 
Another photo of the landscape was taken once the agronomists descended from their vehicle, although the object appeared in the initial photo, so it can be inferred that it was in motion.
 
"I wanted to see the job done, and when I noticed the object in the distance looked like an unidentified flying object (UFO), like a flying saucer, I couldn't believe it. 
 
I enlarged it using the computer's zoom function, and noticed that it was a completely solid object," explained the engineer who took the photo.
 
"Due to the likelihood that it could have been a cloud, for instance, I looked at another photo, taken in a time interval of one minute, and it was no longer there. This showed that it couldn't be a cloud, as it vanished too quickly," he added.
After passing the photo to his superiors, and analyzing that something unusual was in it, the agronomist says that it changed his outlook on the existence of abnormal objects in the sky.
 
"Up to now, the truth is I'd never believed [in such things], but seeing this photo, it seems that there is something to it. We were very surprised," he concluded.

Political Priorities and UFOs

Posted: 30 Apr 2013 08:25 AM PDT

I really do not enjoy writing or talking about political concerns I have, but am becoming more concerned that the only objective our leaders in Washington have are interests that benefit themselves. I won't lay blame on any individual party either, as I feel they all fall into the same trap once they get to Washington.

Over the past 65 years much has been written and reported in reference to the UFO situation world wide, while our leaders have for the most part ignored it, or have shown no interest in looking in to it, so the public might at least know truthfully what all these reports are about.

Nearly every President since Truman has indicated they would investigate the reports and have not succeeded in doing so. I think I do understand that since the President is a "temporary employee", serving a maximum of 8 years as President, he most likely doesn't have the security clearance, or "need to know" to follow through on his desire to obtain the information. In my opinion the President can't be trusted with such information. Nearly all have tried while in office to no avail, which I'll explain later.

Many of those that are in Congress are active on various committees that could easily look into the UFO situation, but have not done so to any satisfactory degree. Excuses for not doing so are evident in some of the reports I have read. This is not a matter of serving only their constituents they represent from each state, but a national concern that should be looked at by many or all of those that are elected to serve the people they represent. The Constitution states plainly in it's opening statement, "We the People", and for me that's been lost by those we elect to represent us in Washington.

When legislation needs to be passed prior to being read by those voting on it, as Nancy Pelosi recently alluded to regarding passage of the "Obama Care bill," we have a major problem with those we elected to represent us. I suppose I shouldn't expect them to take UFO reports under consideration, based on their current records, of not being able to agree on any legislation that currently affects all of us.

Two Presidents, Reagan and Carter reported sightings of UFOs prior to becoming presidents, while governors of their states in California and Georgia. Reagan even addressed the UFO topic at the United Nations in a speech given there in 1987 while President. President Clinton had an interest in UFOs and asked an aide to look into the topic, who reported back to the President that he could not find any information. I've heard rumors about Eisenhower having some involvement with extraterrestrials, but have never seen any confirmation on that. George Bush, Senior was head of the CIA prior to becoming president, and may well have been the only president with any prior knowledge of UFOs, although he has never publicly mentioned anything, that I'm aware of.

Barry Goldwater was a United States Senator from Arizona who ran for President in the 1960's and lost to Lyndon Johnson in the 1964 Presidential election. He was also a member of the Senate Intelligence committee, and promoted to Brigadier General in the Air Force Reserve. His interest in the possibility of extraterrestrial beings visiting earth has been recorded several times in interviews he did, particularly during an interview with Larry King on CNN in 1988. He had asked General Curtis LeMay about going in to the Blue Room at Hangar 18 at Wright Field in Dayton Ohio, and was told by General LeMay "to go to Hell", and "don't ever ask me that question again."

In 1995, New Mexico Congressman Steven Schiff requested an investigation into the Roswell Incident through the General Accounting Office. The report he received back after the GAO had interviewed several agencies in Washington stated that the documents related to Roswell were "missing" and destroyed without proper authority. Those were permanent records that should have never been destroyed. The GAO further stated they could not identify who destroyed the messages, or why. Those messages would have involved the 509th Bomb Group, (the only atomic bomb group in the world in 1947), who ended the war with Japan 2 years earlier. This, of course, raises the question of accountability among our leaders in Washington then and now. 

Many times when I submit a Freedom of Information Request Form for military records to the National Personnel Records Center in St Louis, Missouri, I will get a response in a form letter stating those records may have been destroyed in a fire at the center July 12, 1973.

Since the Roswell Incident occurred in 1947 there have been a few congressional hearings on the subject of UFOs, with no substantial information coming forward from those hearings to resolve the question. Meetings have been held at the United Nations, again, with no results. Astronauts, law enforcement officers, airline pilots and such have brought up the subject of UFOs existing, again, with no follow up by any legislators or people in the know.

The Phoenix lights, Stephenville Texas near President Bush's ranch, the O'Hara airport incident and many others have all been reported by credible individuals, but no one follows through on these well documented occurrences. Lame, unsatisfactory excuses are sometimes given by those in authority to pacify the public, and then the incident is filed away, never to be mentioned again, such as was the case with the Condon Report, Blue Book, the Roswell Reports and several other reports made public over the years.

Many of us believe the 4 excuses given for Roswell during the past 60 some years do not satisfactorily explain what happened on the ranch near Roswell. For me that raises the question of who in our government is willing to admit that they have been lying to us for all those years? I don't see that happening, and would open the question to a lot of other things our Government and certain military leaders have been covering up, and still do today, if you watch the national news almost on a daily basis. Cover up has become a way of life and doing business by our leaders in Washington and at some local levels, and it appears that "we the people" are accepting that. At my age, the concern I have for our younger generation is that although there is information we probably don't need to know for our nation's security, lying to us about many of these cases is not what our elected officials are elected to do in representing us.

The Cloverdale, Alabama Spooklight Phenomenon

Posted: 30 Apr 2013 07:43 AM PDT

A Spooklight is a type of rare luminous phenomena frequently reported as a brilliant yellowish-orange ball of pulsating or flickering light about 1-3 feet in diameter and floating across open fields or above the forests in sparsely populated areas. The distance from the observer varies greatly. While some are seen at close proximity, others may be as far as a mile away. Some move about at a slow and steady pace and others "jump" and "dart" about very quickly. A few will stop and hover for several minutes. For reasons unknown a high percentage of Spooklights have been seen in the vicinity of r railroad tracks . These orbs are not reported as being solid objects. Rather, they seem to be some type of low temperature plasma.

Photo info: A thirty second time exposure of a large Spooklight seen a east of Cloverdale. The photograph was made by a Pentax 35 mm camera mounted on a tripod.

Spooklights have been seen in numerous locations in the US for many years and some of the more publicized areas include Marfa, Texas, Brown Mountain, North Carolina, Surrency, Georgia and Guordon, Arkansas. A search on the internet for these Spooklight areas will result in dozens of websites offering information, eye witness accounts, photographs, etc.

What they really are has been debated for years. But the growing body of scientific evidence continues to perplex many scientists. And it is clear; what ever they are, conventional wisdom has yet to adequately explain what produces them and why.

One thing is certain; most people who observe one of these wondrous orbs will consider it to be a truly remarkable experience. An experience they will want to have repeated.

A growing number of researchers suggest that Spooklights seem to be the result of complex interactions of multiple electrical and electromagnetic energy fields which apparently are produced below the earth's surface when the correct geological and hydrological conditions exist. These orbs possess certain electrical and magnetic qualities and by means unknown a spherical shaped luminous plasmodial phenomena is produced above its source of energy and are sustained up to several minutes.

Either they have the means of propelling themselves or they are "pulled" by some invisible unidentified force. They are normally seen during the nighttime hours. They are generally described as "a bright ball of light" about 1-3 feet in diameter glowing in the night for the most part, are seen floating slowly across a field or above a forest.

One location where there is a very active Spooklight area is in northwestern Alabama (Lauderdale County) near the small town of Cloverdale. Based on historical data as well as contemporary sightings the over all size of this area where this phenomenon has been seen appears to be about fifteen miles long and three miles wide. This area begins outside of Lexington and extends to a short distance west of Cloverdale. Inside this area appears to be a few very specific "paths" or corridors where the vast majority of the Spooklights are seen. The "path" that appears to be the most active extends from St. Florian to Cloverdale which is less than ten miles long and one mile wide. And the part of the "path" near Cloverdale is very active. It is rare (but has happened) for a CLS to be seen other than on its "path."

The available evidence seems to suggest this is one of the "best" places in the US to observe these wondrous balls of bright yellowish-orange pulsating light. One reason this area may be unique is that these luminous orbs are seen with much frequency. While an observer may spend an evening in one of these pockets" and not witness a Spooklight, on another night at the same place the observer may view three or four of these bright orbs.

In one case, two men observed eight Spooklights in one night. Some were in sight for just a few seconds and three of them were in plain sight for a total of about ten minutes.

Another reason this is an excellent place is the size of the Spooklights. Hundreds of witnesses who have reported observing these large of yellowish-orange balls of pulsating light typically describe them to be very bright and about eight feet in diameter. Most Spooklights reported in different locations are of lesser diameter. This is one reason why they were years ago called "Lantern Lights" because they were about the size and brightness of a lit oil lamp seen outside in the dark.

The first documented report of one of these CSLs occurred in early 1973 when northern Alabama was experiencing a major UFO flap . On the night of February 16, Raleigh and Phil Nix with several friends reported observing a very bright and large ball of orange light at 110:30 p.m. sitting on the ground in a large grassy field near his house while they were outside in his front yard. The ball of light which was less than a thousand feet away had suddenly appeared "as if a light had been turned on" and began moving very slowly across the field. Just a few seconds before it suddenly "went out" the mysterious orb began to move about in a "jerky" fashion. The Spooklight was in view for about four minutes. According to the Nixes, this was their fourth time to have observed one of these large balls of light. Since then, various witnesses have reported observing these large mysterious orbs in an areas extending from Lexington westward to Cloverdale.

In September of 1978 two young men were in a large field east of Cloverdale and within view of some local railroad tracks at 10:30 p.m. when they spotted a large and very bright Spooklight hovering about thirty feet directly above the railroad tracks. The witnesses could see the CSL very clearly and could discern that it was not near the tracks but directly above them. The very bright orb was not seen to float to this position from another location; it just suddenly appeared. One moment there was but darkness surrounding the tracks and then suddenly "there it was."

The CSL was completely silent and unaffected by a slight breeze which came from the south. Both witnesses had an excellent view of the area including the tracks because they were situated at a higher elevation in a large grassy field adjacent to the railroad tracks. On the other side of the tracks was a parcel of land that was fenced in and at one time years ago was used as a minimum security prison facility.

The large orb was very bright, about eight feet in diameter and about 1500 feet from the witnesses. As they studied the ball of light hovering directly above the tracks, they were amazed of its brightness. After about a full two minutes, they became aware that a train was approaching in the distance for they heard the distant sound of its air horn. After a few moments, the train came into view as its powerful headlight pierced the darkness and was seen moving down the tracks toward the CLS. The train's engine was pulling several cars and was traveling at an estimated speed of 25-25 MPH. As the train's engine went directly beneath the motionless Spooklight, the large ball of pulsating light immediately began to move at the same speed and direction of the train. The speed of the orb was instantly in perfect synchronization to that of the train. Yet its distance above the ground never changed. Also, its brightness and color remained the same. The Spooklight and train began to move toward the southwest and the orb was in sight for a total of eight minutes for it eventually traveled too far away for the two men to observe.

The two witnesses also reported that the train continued on its way in a normal fashion (no change in speed) which could mean that no one on the train was aware of the Spooklight's presence and that these phenomena had no noticeable affect on the trains' electrical system. After reflecting on this amazing experience, both witnesses came to the conclusion that this CSL did not appear where (and when) it did by coincidence. They felt it had been there hovering in position and then became visible a few moments before the train arrived.

An other excellent sighting occurred on the night of 16 February, 2006 when a very bright CSL was seen crossing the Cloverdale Highway. The orb appeared at 10:00 p.m. and was typical in size and color and moved slowly in an east to west direction at an estimated altitude of 500 feet. Fortunately one of the two witnesses had a video camera and was able to video the orb for about two minutes before it moved too far away.

This video revealed new and important information about these Spooklights. Even though the video was not made using a professional type camera, what was seen on the video clearly revealed there was a smaller and much dimmer orb connected to the main body by what may have been some kind of "umbilical cord." There was definitely a faint yet discernable "connection" between the two bodies. The smaller Spooklight appeared to be about 2-3 feet in diameter.

While this is the first time this much detail about a secondary light being present it is not the first time a smaller secondary orb has been observed associated with a Spooklight. In one case it was reported that a small reddish colored orb broke off and fell from a yellowish-orange Spooklight. Very little is known about this amazing aspect even though it may occur frequently but without using adequate visual aids, it can not be verified. But these two sightings do not appear to be unique to the Cloverdale Spooklight phenomena.

For instance, there was a report of a large and bright ball of orange light seen with two smaller red lights in July, 1888 near St. Petersburg, Russia. A website with an artist's version of this sighting can be found at http://inamidst.com/lights/.

Description of the CLS

The general description of a CSL has remained consistent since the first documented sighting. Over the years, especially since 1973 hundreds of witnesses in the Cloverdale to Lexington area have reported observing large "balls of light" which are usually described as being from 6-10 eight feet in diameter and are usually a bright orange or yellowish-orange color. The eight foot diameter description appears to be fairly accurate because many witnesses have been close enough to the luminous phenomena to accurately estimate their diameter. They suddenly appear and disappear and are in sight from a few seconds to several minutes. Their movement is normally in east to west or west to east direction. Very few have been reported to fly in a north to south or south to north direction.

They are completely silent and their movement (speed and direction) is independent of any wind currents. Several have been observed moving opposite of a brisk breeze. Some CSLs have been observed moving across large fields 2-3 feet from the ground. Others are seen at an estimated altitude of up to or possibly more than 500 feet. Their movement is not always "smooth" but at times erratic. Several have been seen to move in a spiraling fashion (there have been some good time-exposure photos taken which shows this very clearly).

Using various optical aids (binoculars, telephoto camera lenses, video cameras, etc.) several observers have noticed the CLS actually pulsates and is not a steady ball of light. There have been on one occasion, a 'piece" of the CSL fell away from the main body and quickly disappeared.

The camera was using 400 speed film and was mounted on a tripod.

 

Basic Analysis of the CSLs

Hundreds of CSLs have been seen by credible witnesses. Many photos have been taken as well. They are not misidentified manmade aircraft and they are always described as a "ball of light."

Upon closer examination it would appear they may be some type of "cold" luminous plasma type phenomena. There has never been any report or evidence suggesting these Spooklights produced any significant amounts of thermal energy. As with the Raleigh Nix sighting where the Spooklight was according him "landed on the ground" when it was first sighted there was no damaged grass found in the field. And since they are "balls of light" it would appear to be plasmodial in nature.

Witnesses who have been either physically close enough to CSL or have used binoculars, reports the Spooklights emit its light using slow pulses and were not a steady light. With many sightings the observers are from 1,000 to 4,500 feet from the CSL. If witnesses have experienced "close encounters" with these phenomena they have gone unreported. Some parts of this large orb would briefly glow more intense than other parts. Some times the Spooklight would disappear and then a few seconds later would reappear. What has been determined that is when a Spooklight "disappears" it may be that it is for a few moments not producing visible light yet is actually still "there" for it may reappear a short time later, either in the same place of a short distance away.

The speed of the CSL is usually estimated to be from 20-30 MPH. This has also been one their consistent characteristics. The duration of a sighting varies with the length being from a few seconds up to nine minutes. Some are seen near the ground while the altitude of some may be as much as 500 feet or more. In one case while four adults observed a typical CSL moving slowly at an estimated altitude of about 500 feet in a west to east direction near the edge of a large field near some railroad tracks. After viewing the bright orb for about two minutes, it suddenly and without obvious reason began to increase speed and quickly decreased altitude and after a few moments the bright light (two of the witnesses claimed the Spooklight's color took on a slight reddish tint as it lost altitude) had descended to tree top level and then appeared to have "crashed" in a nearby wooded area.

When the light "crashed" the four witnesses armed only with excitement and flashlights quickly entered the pitch dark woods to locate the mysterious orb. After a limited investigation no evidence was located which indicated anything had impacted the area. There was no sign of the Spooklight. There were no broken tree limbs, smell of smoke, etc. Two days later two of the witnesses returned to the "crash site" and examined the area in the day time and found nothing suspicious or unusual.

The Spooklight's Paths

These Spooklights are not seen floating or hovering randomly in a large undefined area. A hopeful observer does not need to be uncertain as to where they will be seen. There are certain areas where they may be seen and certain areas where they will not be seen. Rather they appear to be seen floating in very specific "paths" which do not relocate. It is rare for one to be seen traveling outside of its path. Even the way they ambulate is unique. They do not always float in a slow steady movement. Some will begin to transverse in a spiraling manner and this is reported by the witnesses and has been verified by photographs. In one case a Spooklight was observed and photographed moving in a "step" motion – moving vertically a short distance then horizontally and repeating the sequence several times before it began moving in a more typical fashion.

One of the more "high yield" places to observe a Spooklight is an area just south of Cloverdale where road 272 intersects Cloverdale road which it extends from Florence to the Tennessee State line. These Spooklights normally will be seen traveling in an east to west direction regardless of altitude. This sighting area is at least three miles long and about one half mile wide.

While very few have been seen during daylight hours, several have been seen at dusk. It is curious that most of the CSL sightings that occur at dusk are seen during October through February. Most CSL are seen from an hour after sunset to about midnight. Of all the known Spooklight sightings reported in the area, none have been seen after 1:00 a.m.

It is as thought this magnetic path only exists intermittently and predicting when it will exist has proven difficult.

EU bans pesticides for two years to save Bee from Extinction

Posted: 30 Apr 2013 07:11 AM PDT

British bee populations dropped by two thirds last year making honeybee extinction a real possibility in our lifetime.

It is a great concern in the EU and so a vote of 15 countries out of 27 has banned  neonicotinoids pesticides which studies have found harm honeybees. Britain was one of the countries which voted against the ban and their own panels had suggested a need to ban the pesticide. Nearly three million signatures were given to the EU supporting the ban on the pesticides and public  protest at Westminister took place. The honeybee is an important player as a pollinator for crops and flowers which are food sources for many animals as well as mankind. The EU will ban the sell of seeds with these pesticides. Supporters of the pesticides argue crop production will fall without these pesticides. Blueberries,cucumbers, melons, strawberries, and almonds are just the few plants which are pollinated by honeybees. I want to give the heads up to UFO Digest readers that local honey producers supplies are rapidly depleting due to the problem. I do not know how long America will continue the use but its populations have decreased. Honey was thought a gift from the gods in the Ancient world and we are seeing some honey even now has medicinal properties.

Ancient Egyptians revered the honeybee and placed its symbol on there temples. The honeybee came from the tears of Ra. In looking at the heiroglyphs of the bee and its connection to the ankh which is the key of life, one wonders if the Egyptians were giving future mankind a warning. The honeybee is one of the greatest pollinators and biotic pollination has gone on for millions of years. We can not afford to lose the honeybee to extinction.

Mother Nature is nothing to mess around with but given respect. The Honeybee has been on Earth for a very long time.

It would be a shame to witness its extinction. They could be the Key to Life.

Sections of Santiago del Estero Attract UFOs

Posted: 29 Apr 2013 12:14 PM PDT

ARGENTINA 04.27.2013 – Following the startling manifestation of an Unidentified Flying Object over Pampa Múyoj and a new photograph taken by a resident of the Almirante Brown neighborhood, suggesting the possible presence of an unknown object, renowned parapsychologist, ufologist and historian Fabio Zerpa confirmed the theory put forth by other specialists, stating that the object that flew over the skies of Santia

Statement by renowned researcher Fabio Zerpa, confirming that a UFO was indeed seen over Pampa Múyoj
 
Photo of sighting taken by two researchers who photographed the sky, not knowing object was there.
go [del Estero] is indeed a UFO.
 
 
"What flew over Santiago [del Estero] is in fact a UFO, but it is nothing new in that province, much less in the world. More cases are taking place now and reports on unidentified flying objects are circulated because people have lost the fear of being ridiculed. This makes the witness – the backbone of research – to feel encouraged to speak out and expedite the work to be done," explained Zerpa.
 
Fabio Zerpa also referred to parts of the world that attract these objects, and our province is one of them.
 
"There are places with magnetic fields and "force triangles" where these objects are more readily seen. Santiago is among them, particularly the area of Frías, Córdoba, Catamarca [as well as] in Chile and Spain. But we also realize that UFOs are seen in all regions of the world," he added.
 
The ufologist also highlighted the fact that technological progress has been a positive influence in capturing these objects.
 
"Since 1975, when I began researching invisible UFOs, the ones that the human eye is unable to see, but can be picked up by a photo camera with greater viewing capabilities. There are three fundamental points when it comes to capturing a UFO: the witness, the technology, and the changes and transformations of humanity itself, with unidentified flying objects manifesting themselves even more to increase the expectations of a future contact with extraterrestrials."
Finally, he stated that these sightings shall continue occurring more and more as time goes on.
 
"UFOs shall be seen more frequently, and Santiago [del Estero] is among the chosen sites, as they descend in areas with low population density, and the province has these characteristics," he concluded.

History Lessons: Bigfoot, the Viceroyalty and the Natives of Nootka

History Lessons: Bigfoot, The Viceroyalty and the Natives of Nootka
By Scott Corrales (c) 2013

During the 18th century, exploration of "la Alta California" (Upper California) pushed northward beyond the deserts and forests of the San Francisco Mission and into the virgin forests of the modern states of Oregon and Washington - lands lacking gold or readily accessible mineral wealth, but whose waters attracted the otters that stirred the interest of Russian settlers in Alaska. As they sailed southward in search of their prize, they came into conflict with the forces of the viceroyalty of New Spain.

In 1774, captain Bruno de Esceta reached the inlet known as Mowichat by members of the nuu-cha-nulth tribe. While no landings took place, the local inhabitants approached the Spanish frigate with handsome animal pelts, seeking to trade them for Californian mother of pearl. The mission assigned to Captain Esceta and his vessel, the "Santiago", was to ascertain that trade was indeed taking place between the natives and the Russian mariners. Measures would be taken to defend the Crown's monopoly over those distant waters, but bad weather and the dreadful scurvy tormenting his crew kept the Spanish officer from sailing north and expelling the Russians from their settlement.

Another world power - England - would also find itself involved in the area following a visit to modern Vancouver Island by Captain James Cook in 1778, and this intrepid voyager would have the honor of bestowing the name "Nootka" upon the inlet. The British presence in those waters continued the challenge against the Spanish affirmation of possession of those lands under the Treaty of Tordesillas, which partitioned the world between Spain and Portugal in the 15th century. The geopolitical uncertainties of the 18th century could fill many pages, but there exists one particular expedition that concerns those interested in old mysteries, particularly of a cryptozoological nature.

In 1792, Juan Vicente Guemes, Count of Revillagigedo, Viceroy of New Spain, decreed that a scientific mission should be sent to the northern Pacific coast: not to challenge the Russian whalers and hunters, but to compile an extensive ethnography on the inhabitants of those distant lands and a catalogue of the surrounding flora and fauna. The expedition, officially called the "Expedición de Límites al Norte de California" (Expedition of the Borderlands North of California)would include naturalist Jose Mariano Moziño Suárez de Figueroa, born in Temscaltepec, Mexico, whose writings on the culture of the nuu-cha-nulth would appear in the document known as "Noticias de Nutka" (News from Nootka, currently kept at Yale University's Beineke Library.








It is believed that the first mention of the controversial creature known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot appears in this 18th century scientific work: Pages thirty-four to thirty-five of "Noticias de Nutka" include remarks by Moziño Suárez concerning an unusual beast given the name "matlog".

"No sé qué decir de un matlog habitante de la Serranía de quienes todos tienen un temor imponderable. Figúranle un cuerpo muy monstruoso, poblado todo de rígidas cerdas negras, la cabeza semejante a la humana pero con los colmillos más grandes, agudos y fuertes que los del oso, larguísimos los brazos, y los dedos de pies y manos armados de largos y encorvadas uñas. Sus gritos solos, dicen ellos, derriban por tierra a quien los escucha, y que hace mil pedazos al desdichado cuerpo sobre el que descarga alguna manotada. Presumo que la historia del matlog tenga el mismo fundamento que la de la creación del hombre que acabo de referir, o que desde una época antiquísima haya recibido la tribu de que deben estos naturales su origen a algunas noticias de la existencia de Demonios [...]

("I do not know what to say about a matlog, a resident of the mountains, who fills everyone with unspeakable dread. They describe it as having a monstrous body, covered in all manner of rigid black bristles, with a head similar to a human's bu with larger, sharper and stronger fangs than a bear's, very long arms, with its fingers and toes armed with long and curved claws. Its screams alone - they say - can topple anyone who hears them, and it can shatter any unfortunate body into a thousand pieces in a single blow. I presume that the history of the matlog has the same basis as the creation myth of which I have just spoken, or that members of the tribe received word long ago that these entities owe their existence to demons [...]) [translation by SC]

Moziño's writings languished in oblivion unitl 1913, when they were translated into English by Iris Wilson. This translation would appear in a work by early researchers of the Sasquatch mystery - Don Hunter and René Dahinden - in the prologue to their classic book Sasquatch (NY: Signet Books, 1975).

Paleontologists and other academics believe the answer to the Sasquatch enigma can be found in the existence of the Gigantopithecus - a creature that may migrated to the Americas from Asia - or some variant of this exinct genus of ape. Could the "matlog" described by the natives of Nootka be one of them?

PERU: Residents of Iquitos Photograph Strange Object

Two residents of the "9 de Abril" settlement in the San Juan Bautista district (Iquitos) reported seeing a UFO in the early morning hours of this day. Daniel Chota Tamani, 30, explained that while speaking to his son, Luis C.G., 14, an incandescent light appeared in the sky, moving oddly and giving off beams of light. The phenomenon was recorded at around 2 o'clock in the morning.

According to Chota Tamani, upon seeing what he took for a spacecraft, he managed to record the incandescent light – which was only a few feet overhead - with his cellphone. "We returned to my house and watched as the UFO moved from one place to another, projecting something like a ray around it. We wanted to notify our neighbors, but we couldn't say a word. Later on, it vanished," he said.

The images they manage to record show the unidentified flying object moving in various ways. Both settlers likewise manifested the belief that this luminous phenomenon is an omen of the end of the world, and that they now believe in extraterrestrials.

Argentina: Two Agronomists Photographed UFO Over Santiago Field

The two men were conducting a land survey when they discovered that one of their photos of the sky, pointing northward, did not resemble a bird or a plane, but an inverted dish.

SANTIAGO DEL ESTERO, 25 Apr (NA) – Two agronomists claim having photographed a UFO while conducting a survey of a field near Pampa Múyoj in Santiago del Estero.
Antonio Pappalardo and Roberto Aguila were startled when they returned to the office to look over the photographs that constitute their work, performed in the middle of siesta time.

"We came to do a survey and took a series of photos to convey the visual information and analyze it back at the office. At around three o'clock in the afternoon, without looking through the viewfinder, I took some photos with my (cellphone) camera but without noticing anything strange. I submitted them to my boss, who noticed there was something odd , looking like an unidentified flying object," one of the surveyors told the Diario Panorama newspaper.

The cellphone photo was taken from a moving pickup truck by the driver himself, holding the cellphone over his companion, who happened to be his boss.

Another photo of the landscape was taken once the agronomists descended from their vehicle, although the object appeared in the initial photo, so it can be inferred that it was in motion.

"I wanted to see the job done, and when I noticed the object in the distance looked like an unidentified flying object (UFO), like a flying saucer, I couldn't believe it.

I enlarged it using the computer's zoom function, and noticed that it was a completely solid object," explained the engineer who took the photo.

"Due to the likelihood that it could have been a cloud, for instance, I looked at another photo, taken in a time interval of one minute, and it was no longer there. This showed that it couldn't be a cloud, as it vanished too quickly," he added.
After passing the photo to his superiors, and analyzing that something unusual was in it, the agronomist says that it changed his outlook on the existence of abnormal objects in the sky.

"Up to now, the truth is I'd never believed [in such things], but seeing this photo, it seems that there is something to it. We were very surprised," he concluded.

Argentina: "Sections of Santiago del Estero Attract UFOs"

Statement by renowned researcher Fabio Zerpa, confirming that a UFO was indeed seen over Pampa Múyoj

04.27.2013 – Following the startling manifestation of an Unidentified Flying Object over Pampa Múyoj and a new photograph taken by a resident of the Almirante Brown neighborhood, suggesting the possible presence of an unknown object, renowned parapsychologist, ufologist and historian Fabio Zerpa confirmed the theory put forth by other specialists, stating that the object that flew over the skies of Santiago [del Estero] is indeed a UFO.

"What flew over Santiago [del Estero] is in fact a UFO, but it is nothing new in that province, much less in the world. More cases are taking place now and reports on unidentified flying objects are circulated because people have lost the fear of being ridiculed. This makes the witness – the backbone of research – to feel encouraged to speak out and expedite the work to be done," explained Zerpa.

Fabio Zerpa also referred to parts of the world that attract these objects, and our province is one of them.

"There are places with magnetic fields and "force triangles" where these objects are more readily seen. Santiago is among them, particularly the area of Frías, Córdoba, Catamarca [as well as] in Chile and Spain. But we also realize that UFOs are seen in all regions of the world," he added.

The ufologist also highlighted the fact that technological progress has been a positive influence in capturing these objects.

"Since 1975, when I began researching invisible UFOs, the ones that the human eye is unable to see, but can be picked up by a photo camera with greater viewing capabilities. There are three fundamental points when it comes to capturing a UFO: the witness, the technology, and the changes and transformations of humanity itself, with unidentified flying objects manifesting themselves even more to increase the expectations of a future contact with extraterrestrials."
Finally, he stated that these sightings shall continue occurring more and more as time goes on.

"UFOs shall be seen more frequently, and Santiago [del Estero] is among the chosen sites, as they descend in areas with low population density, and the province has these characteristics," he concluded.
