The authors indicate that in Palmarito, Venezuela, on November 28, 1954, one of the first cases of UFO landing in that country was reported by a group of peasants who claimed that a strange globular craft had landed and three small men came out of it.

When the object was flying, it left a slight trail.

The Lorenzens note that the occupants were not described more than that and that the place is south of Maracaibo Lake in the Merida State. The Lorenzens indicate no source.


Albert Rosales indicates that near Palmarito, Venezuela, around November 28, 1954, at night, a group of peasants saw a strange globular craft land and discharge three very small men. When the craft was flying in left a slight trail. Rosales specifies that there is no other information and indicates Jim and Coral Lorenzen as the sources.

Points to consider:

The report is cruelly laconic and an evaluation beyond a simple "insufficient data" label would be daring.

It may nevertheless be worthy of notice that the next day in the same country, a much better documented sighting of a globular craft with three occupants occurred.
