Fireball Over Mountains

The Journal of Hispanic Ufology

Corriente Noticias

     One of the eyewitness accounts came from Sergio Acosta, who said that between 6:05 and 6:10 yesterday, as he was throwing out the trash, he noticed "a powerful light that lit up the sky." He informed LT-16 Radio Santa Esmeralda that he " looked upward and saw a something like a giant star, flying at high speed, at an altitude that did not exceed 1000 to 1500 meters in an East to West direction until it became lost in the horizon."

     Apparently he was so alarmed by the strange object's flight pattern that some details were burned into his mind. "It lost a chunk of its luminous body in flight, and in its rear it had something like a "little tail" following it at a close distance, like a hot coal, as thought it was a jet engine or navigation light. But it was a very large object," Acosta remarked.

     This was one of the most detailed accounts of the sighting. But there were at least 4 other witneses who claimed having seen this light with similar charactersitcs -- and at the same time -- crossing the skue. It was even said that one of the witnesses made a drawing to depict the object he had seen.

     When asked if it could have been an airplane, he said it was unlikely because: "it was noiseless. It drew my attention because it was [flying] in total silence. I thought it was a shooting star, but I've seen shooting stars before and they make a whistling sound. This one made no noise whatsoever."

     "Furthermore it wasn't fiery colored, but rather had the same color as a star; like a satellite, but very large, and it even titilated. It was sof ast that it took between six and ten seconds to cross the sky, which was completely clear." He aslo remarked that "I looked to see if ti would fall, but it didn't. It crossed the horizon. I'm not sure if it fell later on. I say it was a UFO because I have no other way of describing it," said this witness.

     "I saw that thing, and night was turned into day. It lit up everything," said Cesar Gustavo Blanco to a local FM station. Blanco is a rural worker who was on his way to his field, north of Napenay. Nervous aftr having seen the object for which he was still trying to find an earthly explanation, he said: "I turned off my pickup truck's engine, because I was shocked. and there was silence. But I could hear something, like a whistling sound, and I felt fear, because that was really the sound of silence," he insisted.
