Date: Saturday 20 October 2007

Date: From Juana Diaz, seen to the east of Ponce. Corral Falso
District, in the Callabo neighborhood.

Time: 7:30 PM Approx.

Witnesses: Several.

Summary: A strange explosion in the South. JUANA DIAZ =96
=93Authorities have not been able to ascertain what caused an
explosion, and its origin, which was heard practically
throughout the western side of this municipality and some
sectors to the east of Ponce on Saturday Night. Yesterday
morning a Police helicopter flyover detected the presence of
charred treetops in the Corral Falso sector of the Callabo
neighborhood. Some witnesses at this location reportedly saw an
explosion they attributed to an aviation accident or flares
being launched at the site. Others did not hesitate to suggest
that it could have been produced by an alien craft, insisting
that the [explosion] was like a lit ball that fell from the sky
and struck a hill. After the explosion at 7:30, several police
men and Emergency Management personnel toured the site without
finding anything.=94

Place: Urb. Parkville, Guaynabo

Time: 7:30 PM

Witness: Reinaldo Mendez

Summary: On Saturday October 20, 2007 at 7:30 PM Mendez was with
his family on the terrace of his house (facing the back yard) in
Urb. Parkville in Guaynabo when he saw an enormous light. First
he thought it was a very bright white flare descending from the
sky to the ground. He asked those who were with him if they had
seen it to, but no one else had. He also thought that it could
have been a shooting star, as it traveled downward. Or it could
have been a flare of some kind, but he never saw it ascend; only
come down. He waited for the loud report made by fireworks but
nothing happened. He gave it no further importance and made no
other remarks, assuming it had been a flare. Upon reading the El
Vocero newspaper and learning of a strange explosion in the
southern part of the island in Juana Diaz and Ponce where only
burned branches were found, he checked the orientation points of
where he had seen the object. He employed a compass and the
Google Earth software. He is almost certain that what he saw
could be related with what he read in El Vocero (Page 22, Monday
22, Miguel Rivera Puig).

Date: Saturday, 20 October 2007

Place: Amalia Marin, Playa de Ponce and Juana Diaz

Time: 7:30 Approx.

Witness: Pedro Cotto

Summary: The explosion (loud report) was heard both as a ground
shock wave and as an air-carried sound in Amalia Marin, Playa de
Ponce at that same tima. First a ground wave was felt, followed
by a sound wave. The sound appeared to be an explosion in a
vacuum. As soon as the events took place, the witness called the
Ponce Municipal Police=92s command center and the Playa precinct,
but no one knew anything. He then phoned the OMMED office and
the person on the phone told him that there was no information
available. In both cases, he was the first person to call.
Regarding the explosion (loud report) in Juana Diaz due to the
alleged fall of a fireball, Pedro believes that it could be
linked to the fragments of the Orionid meteor shower during
these days.

Place: Witness was in Guayama but [object fell] in Salinas

Time: 7:45 PM

Witness: Juan Carlos Menendez

Summary: Menendez was on Guayama on Saturday, more or less in
the same place where a fireball was seen to fall. He saw

around 7:45 PM and it was already dark, with the stars and Moon

visuals were shown.

paranormal researcher Andrew Alvarez at 2 a.m.

Rivera at that time. They went outside to look at the sky but

Place: Juana Diaz, seen to the west of Ponce

Time: 5:00 p.m.

Witness: Ing. Edwin Fontanes and his girlfriend Sharon

52. Edwin was driving and Sharon was next to him in the
passenger seat. In the vicinty of Juana Diaz, Sharon noticed a
very bright sphere entering a cloud. She called Edwin=92s

Date: October 2007

Place: Aguas Buenas, Caguas =96 San Juan Metro Area

Time: Night

Witness: Zaida Vega

Summary: Zaida lives in one of the tallest mountains in Aguas
Buenas. She is concerned about the presence of an uncommon haze
throughout the area. She checked the news to see if it was
desert dust or volcanic ash, but the news had not reported any
such event. She smelled to see if someone was burning copper or
rubber, but the air was pure and odorless. This concerned her,
as she can see the Aguas Buenas, Caguas and part of the
Metropolitan Area and the entire zone appears to be covered by
this strange haze.
