Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Canete, Peru, on August 19, 1965, at an unknown time, at a place southeast of Lima, Peru, 200 peasants affirmed that they saw "a little being with shining eyes" who came from the sky in a flying saucer. The "Institute Peruano de Relaciones Interplanetarias investigated the case" but their results are not known.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Humcat quoting Newspaper source.

Points to consider:

The most amazing is that little surfaces about an alleged sighting when 200 people are claimed to have been witnesses, the Press is said to have reported it, and a ufology group said to have investigated.

Without further information, I can only write off the case as having insufficient data.
