ARGENTINA: Careful, there's a UFO on the Road

A bus traveling from Cordoba to San Luis was forced to stop tue to the presence of a flying saucer on the road. A passenger says everyone got out to take a look at the phenomenon

A woman claimed having seen a UFO last Friday on the route linking the province of Cordoba with San Luis, while she traveled as a passenger in a microbus belonging to the Andesmar Company.

The passenger said that during the night, the bus stopped along the light facing an enormous light and that other passengers and drivers got out of the vehicle to witness the event.

"The time was 21:45 and the bus suddenly stopped. Upon looking down the aisle, I noticed a huge light in the middle of the road. I immediately jumped out of my seat and saw something that I will never forget: a cone-shaped light in the middle of the road," the passenger told the El Liberal newspaper.

Later on, the woman said that she felt herself overcome by a sensation of peace and curiosity, to the extent that she began taking photos of the object with her digital camera.

"Suddenly, the object was enveloped in a bluish-white light and started to spin like a top and rise straight up, lighting the landscape like daytime. In the measure that it ascended, it issued colored lights in intense phosphorescent shades. It suddenly disappeared to become a glowing dot. I immediately began perceiving an odor of heated metal that blended with a very particular smell resembling sulfur," remarked the traveler.

Argentina: More on the UFO in the Road

The following is just in from Luis Eduardo Pacheco of Proyecto Stratocat:

"The news item in question was published today by INFOBAE.COM reprinting what was published by the El Liberal newspaper from Santiago del Estero.

"It should be made clear that the ANDESMAR bus line has not issued at this time any communiqué, nor was one issued by the Cordoba or San Luis police authorities. It is not possible to conduct any further investigations because the information does not specifiy the exact place that the sighting occurred. In spite of this, I sent a message to the ANDESMAR bus line, headquartered in the city of Mendoza, asking if the crew of the bus in question had filed a report. As soon as this information is obtained I will pass it along.

"The only information available at the time is the account furnished by Miryan Coronel, a passenger aboard the vehicle, who was heading toward the town of Loreto in Santiago del Estero, planning to spend New Years Eve with her relatives. If anyone has any additional information, it would be interesting to have it made known in order to have more specific data on this sighting."

Inexplicata will continue to report any follow-up to this alleged UFO landing in Argentina.

Argentina: Further Information on UFO in the Road

LORETO - Miryan Coronel is one of the many residents of Loreto who return home to celebrate the holidays with family. She has been living in Chubut for over 20 years and on December 29 undertook her yearly journey, not knowing that 19 hours after leaving, she and her fellow travelers would be witnesses to the takeoff of what she described as an unidentified flying object.

According to the protagonist, the event took place on the road linking the provinces of Cordoba and San Luis in the vicinity of Mount Uritorco in the middle of the Cordoba mountains. This site is well-known as the location for many events related to the manifestation of strange lights associated to extraterrestrial craft.

"At two o'clock in the morning we boarded the bus belonging to the Andesmar bus line with my sons Santiago,8, and Angel, 4. We occupied seats 40,41 and 42. After nearly 20 hours of travel, the first stars began to appear through the bus's windows. The time was around 21:45 hours," Miryan notes, later adding: "Suddenly the bus stopped, and when I looked down the aisle, I saw an immense light in the middle of the road."

"I immediately jumped out of the seat and saw that my sons were asleep, along with many passengers. I moved to the front of the bus and saw the cone-shaped light in the middle of the road, and got off with the bus drivers and a passenger from Salta who had a camcorder. At no time did I feel fear -- on the contrary, I was engulfed by a sensation of peace and curiosity, to the extent that I began taking photos with my cellphone camera. When I tried to get closer, one of the bus drivers held me back," she explained.

Proceeding with her account, Miryan says: "Suddenly the object, that was enveloped in a bluish white light, began spinning like a top and rising vertically, lighting up the landscape as though it was daytime. In the measure that the giant spinning top rose, it gave off multicolored lights in intense phosphorescent tones before vanishing into a brilliant spot. I immediately began perceiving a smell of heated metal, combining with a very particular odor similar to sulfur."

According to Miryan, the event lasted only a few minutes and no sound was heard. Upon returning to the bus, they exchanged remarks with the people who shared the experience and with the drivers, who said that they had always seen strange lights in the area, but nothing to comapre with the experience on the night of December 29, 2005.

"After the chat I returned to my seat and fell into a deep sleep. I slept until we reached the Loreto bus terminal. They had to wake me up to get me off the bus," said the passenger of this highly unusual journey."

Argentina: Bus Drivers "Unavailable for Comment"

[The following is the text of the reply provided by the Andesmar Bus Line with regard to the "landed UFO" reported by Miryan Coronel a few days ago]

"In reply to your letter, we inform you that we have made the corresponding inquiries due to the publication of Infobae and El Liberal news items on January 3 regarding a sighting of lights in the middle of the road, and in which our company is mentioned as the transportation service employed by Mrs. Miryam (sic) Coronel.

"Endeavoring to corroborate this information, we contacted the drivers of the unit, who are on the road and will return to base (Mendoza) in a few days. They claimed not to be aware of the story given by the passenger to the media.

"We are expecting the drivers' arrival in Mendoza to interview them in a personal manner. We regret not being able to furnish more detailed information in this regard, but this was the information given to us over the phone. Should any new data come to light, we will contact you as soon as possible."
