UFOs in the daily Press:

UFOs in Argentina and in the Azores, 1965:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Méridional, France, page 8, on July 1, 1965.


"Flying saucer" photographed in Bahia

BAHIA BLANCA (ARGENTINA) (A.F.P.). -- A resident of Bahia Blanca (large grain port located 900 km. south of Buenos Aires) claimed to have seen a flying saucer of a pinkish hue, which crossed the Argentine sky from South to North.

To the local authorities, Mr. Carlos Taboada - that is the name of this witness - even brought the photograph he managed to take of the craft.

Local astronomers did not hesitate to qualify it as exceptional, because, in the middle of the saucer which appears on the print like a shooting star, one can see a rectangle cut by large vertical lines.


SANTA MARIA (AZORES ARCHIPELAGO) (A.F.P.). -- A cylindrical, white object, moving slowly in the sky, with an estimated height between 8,000 and 10,000 meters, was seen above the island of Santa Maria, between 3 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. G.M.T.

Perhaps a coincidence: all the electro-magnetic clocks at the Santa Maria airport stopped at 3:45 G.M.T., that is to say at the time when the strange object was vertical to the railway terminal.

Both the Portuguese meteorological services of the archipelago and the war units of Portugal, France and Great Britain, which carry out geophysical surveys in the waters of the Azores, state that they have not launched any probes or other devices.
