Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Via an anonymous web report form of a UFO site, a 22 year-old woman reported that she had an experience in April 2006 in Cabo Polonio, Rocha, Uruguay.

She said that in the night while she was asleep, with the window open whereas she usually closed it, in a home where she was not usually staying, she had fallen asleep with the soothing noises of the ocean, when at one point between 0 and 7 a.m., she saw two beings outside looking in.

She said they were small, 1.20 meters tall approximately, with oval dark eyes, angelic and pleasant faces. She usually panicked when she had previous such experiences but this time the beings looked friendlier and she was not afraid.

She indicates she is a professor of English at the Faculty of Medicine, that she belongs to the New Apostolic Church, and that her opinion on UFOs is that she does not like the topic because it frightens her be she still is a believer, and that such visions occur in her family since her grandmother.

The web site publishes a report received or written on May 3, 2006 about an experience by a 22 year old person in April 2006 in Cabo Polonio, Rocha, Uruguay.

The report is written in capital letters and in Spanish, and indicates in the summary heading that the person slept with the window open vis-a-vis the sea when she saw two beings at her sides.

The time box indicates between 0 hours and 7 hours a.m., by night, the "other witnesses" box indicates that there were none, the duration box indicates 1 minute, the type of location is indicated as rural. The person reports that there is no electrical lighting at this place, there are houses for military personal on holiday.

The person reports that they went there to benefit from the water, snails, animals and the contact with nature far from the noises of the city, and that towards sunrise she was sleeping with her fiancee, with the window open for some air whereas she usually closes windows by fear, with a perfect sight on the Atlantic Ocean.

Calmed by the enchanting noise of the Ocean, she had closed eyes and slept, when at one time she saw beside her two small beings. 1.20 meters tall approximately, who looked in through the window from outside, they were white with oval dark eyes, angelic and pleasant faces.

The person reports that three other people were also in the house, the brother of her fiancee, his spouse and their 6 years old son.

She tells that it was not her first encounter in which it saw them but that this time they were friendlier beings and she was not afraid, while the other times she was panicked after having lived this situation.

In the relevant fields, she indicates that she is 22 and a professor of English at the Faculty of Medicine, that she belongs to the New Apostolic Church, and that her opinion on UFOs is that she does not like the topic because it frightens her be she still is a believer, and that such visions occur in her family since her grandmother.


Albert Rosales indicates that in Cabo Polonio, Rocha, Uruguay, on April, 2006, at 06:00 a.m., the witness was staying in an isolated cabin with her boyfriend by the water and was sleeping by an open window that had a perfect view of the Atlantic Ocean. In the middle of the night the witness suddenly awoke and looked out the window to see two small figures staring at her. She felt a strong sense of peace and tranquility as she watched the two entities which she described as white in color with large black oval-shaped eyes. The entities were about 1.20m in height and according to the witness they had "pleasant" facial features. In a state of complete peace the witness closed her eyes and fell asleep. She did not see the entities again.

Points to consider:

The case is only the web form report, without follow-up investigation neither evaluation nor comment.

All indicates that this is an episode of hypnagogic hallucination in the sleep rather than extraterrestrial visitors; in particular, the fact that the window was open whereas it is usually closed, the place which is not the usual residence, the fact that the grandmother reported things before, constitute a whole of ideal conditions for a sleep different from the usual sleep and such an experience.
