At 7:30pm on March 23, 1974, Sr. Cesar Elorda, senior employee of Y.P.F. in Comodoro Rivadavio, was 16 Kilometers out of Caleta Olivia when he noticed a strange circular aircraft approaching from the ocean to the east. It was traveling in a westerly direction, across the highway. It continued its course and passed over his car. He could clearly see that it was not an airplane. He stopped the car, got out with his camera, and was able to get one good photograph before the object was too far away.

A small craft of Saturn-shaped configuration was photographed over the road in Japan on April 28, 1974. It was just past 10:00am when Noboru Yoshida, a high school student, took 10 black and white photographs of a round, spherical-shaped object having a thick ring surrounding it at the middle. The pictures were made as it flew low in the sky over the road.

1974-08-25; Mexico, Chihuahua

 

Category: UFO Crash

 

On 25 Aug 74, at 2207 hrs, US Air Defense radar detected an unknown approaching US airspace from the Gulf of Mexico. Originally the object was tracked at 2,200 (2530 mph) knots on a bearing of 325 degrees and at an altitude of 75,000 feet, a course that would intercept US territory about forty miles southwest of Corpus Christi, Texas. After approximately sixty seconds of observation, at a position 155 miles southeast of Corpus Christi, the object simultaneously decelerated to approximately 1700 (1955 mph) knots, turned to a heading of 290 degrees, and began a slow descent. It entered Mexican airspace approximately forty miles south of Brownsville, Texas. Radar tracked it approximately 500 miles to a point near the town of Coyame, in the state of Chihuahua, not far from the US border. There the object suddenly disappeared from the radar screens.

Found in a remote region of Saskatchewan near Langenburg, this circular patch of dead grass and dry soil displays the attributes of a UFO landing site. The grass itself is wound around in a circular pattern. People who witness the landings of UFOs find themselves sunburnt with a profound dryness of the throat, nose and lungs. Sometimes it takes days for these witnesses to overcome the effects of the phenomena.

Australian Aborigines have many legends detailing mysterious craft from the heavens landing on Earth. Ranchers in the Outback found that these legends may have more validity that they previously thought. After seeing strange lights in the sky, several ranch hands discovered this depression in the ground near the sighting area.
