Argentina: Possible UFO Sighting in Sullana

22 APR 2008 - Sullana - UFOs in Sullana? A watchman working for the Apoyo III hospital in Sullana showed images taken from his cellphone, namely the image of a luminous sphere [apparently] flying around the moon. These pictures were taken at 8:26 p.m. last Sunday by Eder Cordova Purizaca, 22, who lives Salaverr No. 163, Barrio Norte, of this province. "I was on duty at the door of the hospital's morgue when I suddenly realized that there was a strange light flitting around the moon. Then I was awestruck and only thought to take out my cellphone to take a picture of [the object]," Cordova explained, still amazed. "The light remained there for almost a whole minute before vanishing into space. I think it was a UFO by the way it flashed, since an airplane cannot make such pendulous movements in the air."

Subsequently, the watchman summoned the attention of a co-worker, surnamed Anton, to whom he showed the recorded video. This man in turn notified the shift supervisor of the hospital. Eder Cordova presented the recorded video early yesterday morning. He reports not having felt any sort of fear after witnessing this event, which he classified as a "supernatural wonder."
