Argentina: Reflections On The Tres Arroyos Case

Re-reading the UFO chronicles of yore is an astonishing
experience. It would seem that during the 1970s and to a lesser
extent, the 1980s, UFO sightings were commonplace in Tres
Arroyos and its surroundings.

Back then it seemed that our city and its environs were a =93route
and stopping point for flying saucers=94 (as described by La Voz
del Pueblo in a 1973 article). The foremost exponent of Ufology
in the country at the time, Prof. Pedro Romaniuk, also stated
that the =93UFO route passes over Tres Arroyos and Bahia Blanca,
reaching all the way to Salta. This is possible thanks to
isodynamic lines, which link areas having similar magnetic

The most significant case, however, took place one evening in
June 1973 and had several simultaneous witnesses. Two men saw a
powerful glow followed by the descent of a UFO over an area
field. The next day, it was ascertained that a scorched circle
was left behind in the area where the object had descended. The
same glow was seen by a family driving along in a pickup truck,
and who claimed that their vehicle had been tailed closely by an
unknown craft before disappearing. In the town of Oriente,
almost simultaneously, several people saw an oval, multicolored
object  that flew at low altitude over the location.

On the night of July 3, 1984, an object was reported by several
witnesses almost simultaneously in Oriente, Copetonas and
Coronel Pringles: first as a cloud-shape that gave off bright
flashes and subsequently as a sphere of light, finally with the
unmistakable shape of a UFO.

In 1978 three hunters saw a UFO over Loma del Chapar while
traveling in their truck. The object followed them closely until
their truck=92s motor died and the lights went out.

 - A dozen similar cases were recorded in the town and rural
surroundings of Tres Arroyos from 1971 to 1988. <?xml:namespace
prefix =3D o ns =3D "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 - In 1971 a livestock farmer surnamed Calle had his vehicle=92s
engine and lights suddenly extinguished as he drove from Irene
to Oriente. He got out of the car and saw a flying saucer and
three enormous circles.

 - In October 1972, a family heading from the capital to Tres
Arroyos saw a sausage-shaped craft =96 brilliant and with greenish
flashes -- some 15 km from our city. The glow was so intense
that it illuminated both the surroundings and the vehicle=92s

 - That same month, a small landowner witnessed a bright
circular object from Cuartel VIII. The next day, his neighbor
was faced with a perfect circular shape in the middle of his
wheat field. It measured some five meters in diameter and was
charred at its center. Plants inside the circle had been dried
up and the soil was calcined.

 - In October 1973, during early morning hours, a young rural
laborer was heading back to town when he saw a square object
over the Petrazzini aerodrome. It gave off blinding flashes of
red light, descended until it touched the ground and headed
toward a neighboring field before disappearing. The boy said he
was left paralyzed, unable to make any movement whatsoever.

 - In 1978, several witnessed allegedly saw an object with
elongated windows that gave off a yellowish light fly over the

 - In April 1980, with two days=92 difference, several local
residents claimed having seen UFOs having a similar appearance:
circular and surrounded by an intense white light.

 - In 1986, =93spots=94 were found in a wheat field near
Cascallares, flattened by a centrifugal force greater than three

In 1988 a round, bright yellow-orange object  was seen over the
Lawn Tennis area for over a minute. Its lower section resembled
that of a [child=92s] toy top.
