Argentina: Alleged UFO Sighting and Landing in Pujato (Santa Fe Province)
A striking incident shattered the customary peace of Pujato, a community of some 4000 residents located 42 kilometers west of Rosario on Route 33. Several persons claim that a UFO landed in a local field, leaving clear traces in the corn.
The owner of a 32 hectare field, and local residents, claim that an unidentified flying object (UFO) landed in the early hours of Saturday on a corn field, crushing a radius of 600 meters long by 2 meters wide on the property.
Raúl, a 62-year-old farmer and cattleman, reported to the constabulary of this community in the province of Santa Fe to present a complaint, mainly for the damages suffered. What is remarkable is that who or what caused the damage remains unclear. There was neither a crop theft nor traces of vehicle tracks on the soil: nothing but crushed vegetable matter.
Those living near the cornfield further reported witnessing a craft with strange lights and colors flying over the area, according to Hector Lopez, a reporter from Radio 2. These people happened to be in the vicinity of the local cemetery (as if the report needed further colorful details) at the entrance to the community on Route 33.
The incident took place around 3 o’clock in the morning. The mark left by the putative UFO measures 600 meters long by one meter sixty wide.
Walter Freniche, the local sheriff, confirmed the report and told Radio 2 that the area of crushed vegetation was checked out. He notes that there was no theft, and no tire tracks were in evidence. “Although it’s quite possible the event took place some four or five days ago and they can no longer be seen.”
Freiniche added that “residents claimed seeing lights” although none of them approached the constabulary. “The comment exists, but they never came to make a statement,” he said, adding: “It’s a tough case.”
Personnel from Pujato’s Section 14 are investigating the case, with technical assistance from an agronomer who was surveying the field in question.
