TO: DEPARTMENT OF STATE
FROM: EMBASSY OF BUENOS AIRES
SUBJECT: Celestial Body Observed over Antarctica
ref: ca-1887, August 16, 1965

Attention is invited to the Department of Defense Intelligence Information Report No. 5 804 0048 65, July 16, 1965, from Buenos Aires which provided a translation of four messages received by the Argentine Navy Hydrographic Service concerning unidentified flying objects reportedly sighted in Argentina recently.

The Office of Naval Attaché has requested information from the Argentine naval authorities related to the specific inquiry of CS-1837. It seems unlikely, however that additional information will be available until there is the summer exchange of personnel at the argentine Antarctic stations. At the time of the personnel exchange records with other detailed data will be transferred to Buenos Aires headquarters. The Embassy will make a follow-up inquiry at that time.

As an additional item of interest, the La Plata Observatory issued a statement to the press following the public interest aroused by the Reuters dispatch of July 7 that it had no theory on the unidentified flying objects sighted in Antarctica although it would point out that the sighting occurred at the time that Echo II was orbiting over the Antarctic zone.
