Colombia: UFO Over Nobsa (Boyaca)

Some locals claim that the objects had lights, were shiny and
changed colors. An expert cautions that they weren't

Jose Guio, a plastic arts instructor whose workshop is in Dicho,
in Nobsa (Boyaca) was taking photos of the sky at 4:30 pm on
December 31, 2006 when his eyes fell upon an elliptical object
like an (American) football, crossing the sky.

It was easy for Guio to focus on it with his camera lens.
Accoridng to him, it floated in a single place for 40 minutes
and then moved slowly toward a mountain known as Cruz de Aranda.

Guio's eyes weren't the only one to see a UFO over the
municipality's airspace.

Ramiro Barragan, the town mayor said that he had seen two
figures similar to the one described by the teacher "suspended
in the air" on January 7.

He was at a vineyard located at Puntalarga at 3:30 p.m., and was
able to see through binoculars that the object changed colors.
It shifted from yellow to black to white. Adolfo Zarate, former
secretary of Development for Nobsa, was another witness. "It
spun on its axis and was orange-colored. Then another object
showed up," said Zarate,

On January 7, the alleged UFOs also flew over the Duitama
bullring near Nobsa. Several fans of the "corrida" at the local
fair saw 3 glowing objects in the sky.

Alvaro Bonilla, a member of Contacto Ovni Colombia - an
organization devoted to this phenomenon - traveled to Nobsa to
collect information and after analyzing the photos claimed that
they were non-terrestrial objects. "This is evident from their
characteristics and the way they flew."

This could perhaps have something to do with an alleged magnetic
power concentrated in the region's mountains. According to Jaime
Viancha, an Nobsa historian, a team of engineers climbed Cerro
Gavilan five years ago, next to Cruz de Aranda (where the
majority of the objects have been seen) and the compasses they
carried with them went haywire. Rafael Garcia, an official with
Ingeominas, added that there are no reports to certify this

For the time being, the residents of Nobsa are happy that their
municipality, aside from tourists, is also visited by ETs.
