Readers of Inexplicata are familiar with the reports on
Argentinean UFO and paranormal cases provided by our
contributing editor, Guillermo Gimenez, who co-directs the
Planeta UFO weblist with Christian Quintero. Mr. Gimenez took
some time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions for


Hi Guillermo - Thanks for taking time out of your schedule to
answer some questions for INEXPLICATA. As a researcher, what is
your opinion on the case involving the four police officers that
had the CE-4 experience near the town of Irene?

Hello Scott =96 Well, I can tell you that this is without a doubt
a very interesting case, more so when its protagonists were four
police officers from the Buenos Aires Provincial Police, holding
the ranks of lieutenants and sub-lieutenants. Two of the
witnessed not only a large object that came close to them, but
also the descent and perception of four small humanoid figures,
greenish-hued, large-headed and gray-eyed. You can also add to
this the number of witnesses who claim having seen - between 1
and 2 a.m., the indicated time of the encounter on Wednesday,
November 7 =96 strange lights in the sky and a loud detonation
whose source still remains unknown. There are also reports from
other localities which I consider to be "hot spots", such as
Coronel Dorrego, Oriente, Tres Arroyos and Necochea, plus the
visual testimony of a UFO photographed some days ago at a lagoon
near the place where the events occurred. All of this can be
added to the veracity of the events.

Can you describe the conditions one finds in rural Argentina? By
this I mean the distances to be covered, the population density,
the factors that make it ideal for UFO sightings?

The Republic of Argentina is a vast country. Traversing it
covers thousands of miles from north to south and east to west.
Our fields are fruitful in a number of areas and therefore,
distances here are vast, making favorable for UFO events. For
example, between my city, which is Necochea, and the neighboring
city of Tres Arroyos, there's a distance of 142 kilometers.
There are some homesteads and small localities where strange
objects are also reported, as well as encounters with their

This region is very rich in UFO case histories, and we've had
all kinds of encounters with beings of various descriptions.
Perhaps the first recorded CE-3 case in this region took place
in Tres Arroyos around 1940 and its protagonists were also
police officers from the Province of Buenos Aires. They
witnessed a luminous, disk-shaped object and could see a number
of humanoid figures "coming and going", in the words of Sgt.
Vicente and Patrolman Gitani. This sighting impressed them to
the extent that they withdrew from the area. A startling case.
Imagine what it must've been like, Scott, to undergo an
experience like this one.

Does this case remind you of other cases involving police
officers that ran into UFOs in your country's rural areas?

Argentina has had many UFO cases involving police officers. I'm
reminded of the events of the Julio Orozco case from May 1999 in
the province of La Pampa, a region that has always offered rich
and interesting case histories. Another would be the one that
occurred in Salta, in the vicinity of the Tin Tin straight road,
near the Cachi Pass at an elevation of 6100 meters, when a
patrol car was escorted by a huge UFO along a beautiful region
of our country. This was around May 2001. Another event would be
July 2002 incident in the Province of Cordoba, when various law
enforcement officers sighted a large object. As you can see, I
can keep listing cases, but I think this offer a good sample.

Have you had the chance to investigate any similar cases in
Necochea and its environs?

I had the chance to investigate several UFO cases involving
police officers as well as regular citizens, highway chases and
even encounters with occupants. All of this took place in
Province of Buenos Aires, in cities such as Necochea, Miramar,
Tres Arroyos, Coronel Dorrego, Oriente, etc., in other words,
the same area as the main events. Case histories are abundant
and have taken place at different times.

Which ufological mystery intrigues you most?

My interest in ufology came about in the summer of 1977 in my
city, Necochea, when I was able to see the maneuvers of a large
mothership that crossed the city at a very low altitude and in
perfect silence. There were hundreds of witnesses. From that
moment I felt the urge to research. I've had the opportunity to
travel all over the world and find in various parts of the world
(the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, etc.) many
encounters that were similar to others that took place enormous
distances away and in other times. Surprising cases involving
different witnesses. There's no doubt that cases involving the
presence of occupants intrigue me the most. Here in Necochea I
have looked into real encounter cases. Our area is rich not only
in cases, but in the quantity and quality of the eyewitnesses

Thanks for sharing your insights with us!
