UFOs in the daily Press:

Ufology in Portugal, 1978:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Le Midi Libre, France, on October 9, 1978.



The first alien discovered in 1960 in Portugal

Lisbon. -- The Portuguese swing between natural disbelief and the temptation to believe in the marvelous, after the announcement of the discovery of a small unknown living being, which would have been dropped from a "UFO" in the south of Portugal, 18 years ago.

The public is beginning to get excited about this affair and lives in expectation of new details on the existence of this strange being, a few millimeters high, cottony in appearance and equipped with retractable tentacles, which should be provided at the end of the first Iberian congress of "ufology", meeting since Saturday in Porto.

The most skeptical must agree that the congress in question, convened on the initiative of the Center for Astronomical Studies and Unusual Phenomena, is a serious matter, since it has the support, in particular, of the chief of staff of Portuguese aviation, General Lemos Ferreira.

In an interview with the daily "A Capital", Mr. Joaquim Fernandez, president of the congress, evokes the scope of the discovery in these terms: "We do not want to frighten anyone, but, in truth, faced with such a discovery, we are forced to admit that all our environment, the water we drink, the air we breathe, can be contaminated by extraterrestrial objects or beings.

Mr. Joachim Fernandez adds that the Center for Astronomical Studies and Unusual Phenomena intended to share the discovery with the U.N., "because of the interest shown by its Secretary General, for research on UFOs".

According to Mr. Fernandez, the fall of fluffy clouds like the one in which the being in question was found, 18 years ago, has been observed in several other places in Portugal, in recent years.

Under these conditions, he believes, one can imagine that thousands of extraterrestrial living organisms exist on earth.
