UFOs in the daily Press:

Mysterious object falls in Puerto Rico, January 2003:

This article was published in the daily newspaper El Mundo, Puerto Rico, on January 6, 2003.


An object of unknown origin crashed against the leaves of a palm tree last Wednesday and burned almost a meter of grass in the backyard of a San Juan residence, according to Puerto Rican police officials.

According to the report, a strong smell of sulfur innundated the site shortly after the fall occurred in a family dwelling in Carolina, the municipality adjacent to San Juan. The property was owned by Matmari and Martin Rodriguez Carrasquillo.

The couple advised authorities of the incident a few days after it occurred. Police advised the Arecibo Observatory in northern Puerto Rico of the event. Officials from the observatory and the Environmental Quality Board (JCA) conducted a radiation test, yielding results which showed the object came from beyond Earth's atmosphere, according to the police report.
