Date: March 1 1963
Location: Cordoba Argentina
Summary: A multicolored object, the size of a light truck, was reported to have landed in the vicinity of Lyle. Police searched an area over 3 km wide on both sides of the Iowa-Minnesota border, with no results. Cesar Domingo La Padula, Ariel Kaplan, and Ernesto Jose Ind, students of the Institute of Mathematics, Astronomy and Physics of the National Observatory of Cordoba, sighted a UFO while on the terrace of Mr. Padula’s home, attempting to adjust an antenna. aapro2They said the object was completely irregular” and that once during the sighting the shadow of the object fell on buildings. Padula does not maintain that the object is a “flying saucer” and adds nothing to the report except the above. aaproThe newspaper, “Cordoba” published the photos (see cut) on their front page, remarking: “Are they or are they not from another world, flying special missions over our planet?” The newspaper, “La Voz del Interior,,, besides publishing on that occasion two of the photos and comments about them, confirm the sighting of the object with the added comment that corroborating witnesses watched the object from the Airport of Cordoba. aapro4The time of day of the sighting anrl subsequent photographs, was 5:30 p.m. Doubt concerning the incident was expressed in the newspaper ,,Los principios” in an interview with the photographer of the National Observatory of Cordoba, Mr. Julio Albarracin who said he gave no credence to the report, and that he felt it was the product of a “youthful mentality” (juvenile hoax). He also stated that the photos show an object that reflects a “strange light,, from the lower side and has a shadow on the upper side, the angles of the photo are contradictory and there are other details that make the whole incident suspicious. However, the newspaper,.Cordoba,, said that members of the Institute decided to have the photographs analyzed. by professional photographers who informed them the pictures were not fakes. We are making inquiries to get prints from the original negative and additional testimony and details-if we are successful, more will be featured in comins issues.

Location:  flight from Barcelona to Maiquetia, Venezuela
Summary: Following the publication of the Paso del Cabello photo in “El Universal,” the Caracas newspaper received a letter from Mr, Delio Ribas of Valera, State of Trujillo, Venezuela, in October, 1966, enclosing a photo taken three years earlier (1963) on a AVENSA flight from Barcelona to Maiquetia, Venezuela. This photograph is an original from the negative, which is in the possession of the pilot who took the picture. Mr. Ribas stated that “the airline pilot who took the photograph and myself are absolutely certain that the object is one of the so called flying saucers. The pilot does not wish to speak much on the subject because he has been the object of ridicule by some of his Venezuelan fellow pilots and also certain pilot friends in the USA.F . . .” The authenticity of this photograph was questioned by Capt. Larry Gibson, a skeptical commercial pilot, on the basis that the dark line around the disc which he supposes is shadow, does not coincide with the shadows of the plane and the disc cast on the ground; and that the object seems to be nothing more than the “button which locks the window to the crew compartment.” However this objection does not explain how this “button” could cast such a large shadow (almost half the size o{ the plane itself.) Mr. Fernando de Calvet a professional topographer and geometrician made a study ol the position of the shadows and demonstrated mathematically that all the objects and details in the photograph bear absolutely exact relations with each other. Also, Mr. Konrad IIoneck, electronics engineer, and Mr. Miguel Sapowsky, ano(her engineer in charge of the technical department oI a large Caracas Television station, have substantiated Calvet’s explanation: mars
