Three Cheers For Uruguay
by Billy Cox

Larger only than tiny Suriname in South America, Uruguay’s
profile barely registers on the world stage. It draws headlines
every now and then, like when it provides free laptop computers
to every kid in primary school, or when it becomes the first
Latin American nation to sanction gay civil unions, or when its
legislature moves to legalize marijuana. But most of the time,
Uruguay’s 98 percent literacy rate and its recession-proof 9
percent economic growth-rate sail under the radar, which may
actually be a good thing.

This week, thanks to journo A.J. Grevaerd of Brazilian UFO
Magazine, we get a glimpse  into Uruguay’s quietly remarkable
UFO study program, which has been up and running since 1979.

Try to imagine, for instance, a scenario like this playing out
in the U.S.: A bright glowing UFO materializes over a dam and
lingers over power lines. A major city simultaneously goes dark.
Military interceptors get scrambled to check it out. Slack-jawed
ground observers and pilots can only watch as the UFO changes
colors from yellow to orange to red during accleration before
vanishing entirely.

This actually happened, in 1986. Montevideo, home to more than
half of Uruguay’s 3.3 million residents, briefly lost power.
Utility technicians reported its transformers had overheated
during the UFO sighting. The culprit was never identified, but
authorities never had a problem talking about it on the record.

Recounting this and other events to Grevaerd is Col. Ariel
Sanchez, who chairs the Uruguayan Air Force’s Commission for the
Reception and Investigation of UFO Reports, or Cridovni. Sanchez
said Cridovni conducts “a police style investigation” into the
most compelling cases
