Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Petare, Venezuela, on June 10, 1955, at 2000, a family sees an oval shaped craft trailing black smoke descend and land on a hillside. Several figures are then seen moving around the object. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Loren Gross, UFOs A History 1955.


Donald Johnson indicates that on June 10, 1955, in Petare, Venezuela, 5 ovoid objects descended on a hillside, emitting smoke or fog and beams of light. Figures were seen moving around inside the haze. The objects took off flying to the east.

The source is indicated as the APRO Bulletin, August 1955.

Points to consider:

Obviously nothing certain can be said about such a thin incorrectly documented story.
