Mexico: Alleged UFO Photographed Before Sandstorm

CIUDAD JUAREZ =96 Residents of Ciudad Juarez claim having
photographed an unidentified flying object only minutes before
last Friday's sandstorm, whose winds approached 90 kilometers an
hour and created widespread chaos throughout the region.

Through the Facebook social network, a photograph was shared
this Monday by subscriber Juan Carlos Leon, showing a sort of
ring suspended in the sky with at least a dozen lights.

The user informed Norte Digital that the photo was taken by a
young woman named Raquel Vargas, who provided him with the

Leon noted that Vargas is a skeptical individual. However, she
managed to photograph the aerial shape moments before the
weather phenomenon took place, and wanted to share it on the

Norte Digital contacted Vargas, who assured that said image was
taken in the vicinity of Calzada del Rio, to the north of the
city, in the direction of El Paso, Texas. "I was running an
errand at a neighboring development and we heard something like
a lightning bolt, but when we turned around, we saw that thing
in the sky", she said.

The phenomenon was seen by several local residents, who turned
on their cellphones and photo cameras upon seeing the UFO. "When
we left our home, in a matter of minutes, it was still in the
sky and I managed to take a picture of it. Others did as well."

Another local resident told Vargas that the lights resembled the
ones seen when a night time game is being played at a stadium.

The "haboob" started only minutes after the strange aerial
spectacle ended.

"There was a lot of wind and flying dirt after that, and we went
away because the storm had already started," she noted.

Last Friday, the wind gusts recorded achieved speeds of up to 85
kilometers per hour, prompting a mobilization by various rescue
forces, Public Safety and Civil Protection, who reported to at
least 37 emergency situations in a two-hour period.

Injuries, blackouts, toppled structures, fallen fences and
trees, aside from traffic accidents and the momentary suspension
of flights from the local airport, were the consequence of the
zero visibility caused by the powerful winds.

Colombia: Luminous Anomaly Over Manizales

[INEXPLICATA stopped posting photos of alleged UFO phenomena a
while back, but our friend Daniel Gonz=E1lez of Spain's GEIFO
group (currently in Colombia, where he heads the organization's
local chapter) has sent us two interesting photographs: a
greenish "flying spindle" that supposedly appeared after a
lightning storm in the town of Manizales, Colombia. He is
currently trying to locate the photographer for an interview. In
the meantime, we submit these to you as "anomalous light" photos
and not UFO shots. - Scott Corrales, Editor, Inexplicata]
