TOWNSFOLK CLAIM HAVING SEEN UFO IN GOBERNADOR UGARTE

There was an intense light over an abandoned house

Residents of the 25 de Mayo rural area and police personnel from the Gobernador Ugarte barracks of said district claim having seen a powerful white light suspended in space for several minutes before taking off swiftly toward the West.

Three townspeople and three members of the Gobernador Ugartte police force witnessed something strange over a farmhouse, something that irradiated a very powerful white light from its lower section, making it difficult to see what was above the light. This fact has been made known to authorities of the Mercedes Police Department, who for the moment did not define the cause, although the eyewitness reports of local residents corroborates the sighting of a powerful light suspended over an abandoned house.

This "strange light" was seen by Jose Benavides and his wife Rosa Gutierrez, as well as by Manuel Gonzalez, who decided to report the event to the police barracks. It was thus that only a few minutes later the department's squad car, driven by senior officer Rafael Aragones and assisted by two other officers visited the field and attested to the truth of the call, since the strange light was indeed there.

The field where the light was seen is located some 7 km away from the city center of the locality in 25 de Mayo.
