At 2:00pm on April 9, 1976, Hirohito Tanaka saw the small dark circular flying object with the raised dome in the center. It was making a low pass over the roof of his next door neighbor's house. Grabbing his Instamatic 126, he ran to the balcony and shot seven pictures in rapid succession. The domed disc was moving in zig-zag and falling-leaf fashion as it flew about in the near sky. It was dark colored and he could not see much detail, only noting its strange movements, well aware that no airplane known to him could perform such maneuvers.

At 6:30pm on May 9, 1976, Ms. Silvia Marie Weber was walking along Pehuenco Beach in Buenos Aires Province, about 60 kilometers northeast of Bahia Blanca, when she saw a number of people watching an unusual luminous yellow-orange capsule-shaped object flying slowly above the surf in the late afternoon sky. She went and got her camera and returned in time to snap one color photograph of the object before it flew away.

At 10:00am on July 11, 1976, Sr. Eduardo Gizzi and his family, driving their automobile from Victoria to Diamante, noticed a very strange flying object approaching at low altitude from the West. At first they thought it was a helicopter because of its compact appearance and low-level altitude, but as it came closer and they could see it in better perspective, they could see that it had no rotor on top and was not shaped like a helicopter. The object took up a position to their right and for some 15 or 20 seconds paralleled the Gizzy automobile. This allowed the witness to take one good color photograph of the flying craft without stopping the automobile.

At 2:00pm in November of 1976, Mr. Tony Hartono, an engineer, had taken photographs of the off- shore oil rig his company ARCO Indonesia was building in order to illustrate his progress report. He had one left and was standing on a platform facing the sea, wondering what else he could shoot to finish the film roll. Suddenly his attention was attracted to a little dark speck in the sky which was growing larger as it approached. It became a yellowish color as it continued its approach and came quite near the launch he was in. He used his last shot to capture this object on film.
