Colombia: Photographer Captures Alleged UFO over Bogotá
By Luis Jimenez (

A photographer named Richard Emblin, who is also the editor of the only English-language newspaper (“The City Paper”) distributed in the Colombian capital city, Bogotá, managed to photograph a UFO in the city’s skies with a Nikon 300s.

According to Emblin in the Mirror (article by Laura Connor), the object is a somewhat blurry figure 8 that moved through the skies of the capital and which he could see from his place of residence.

“I did not hoax my photo. On Sunday, April 12, I went out to my balcony, which faces to the east. It was a grey Sunday morning. The streets were empty and washed by the slight drizzle that had fallen overnight. When I looked up, I saw an object rising vertically skyward, behind the crest of the Cerros Orientales,” he added.

Richard Emblin, who is also a journalist, has published his work in prestigious media such as TIME magazine and the New York Times, among others. He believes this could harm his reputation, but he says, however, that his sighting did not resemble an airplane in the least.
“It wasn’t a single object – it looked like two. I was able to see the object changed shape. It could rise and descend quickly and go from one end of the city to another in seconds. The black spot appeared to have rings. Then it tilted, moved sideways and disappeared,” he adds.

Emblin asks his readers to draw their own conclusions, as he does not endeavor to convince anyone. He simply witnessed something mysterious over the Colombian capital.

Peru: Alleged UFO Videotaped Over San Isidro, Lima

An alleged unidentified flying object (UFO) was videotaped this Monday over San Isidro, a neighborhood in the city of Lima, as it flew over an area adjacent to the ocean.

The recording was obtained by Diego Bravo Trettenero, 26, a bank employee, who had left the gym around 21:30 hours on Monday, April 13. The gymnasium located in the vicinity of the San Isidro stadium, near the ocean.

Bravo told Con Nuestro Perú that there were some seven or eight people with him at the time that also saw the strange craft. Astonished, he took out his cellphone and managed to capture part of what he saw. These images were posted to YouTube.

He thought the object made no noise whatsoever and was visible for some two and a half minutes, making quick vertical and diagonal movements that are not executed by aircraft or drones. It is his belief that the object was some 20 meters long (65 feet).

When asked whether he believed in the existence of such phenomena beforehand, he replied that he was completely skeptical. He has given the matter second thought after recording this footage.

Con Nuestro Peru has noticed additional details that escaped Bravo. When the object moves in the air, there is a moment in which a loud and rather deep noise can be heard, and which does not seem to originate from a motor vehicle.

At the same time that the noise becomes noticeable, a light that appeared as dim lines becomes visible in the air over the object. "Startled as I was during the recording, I didn't notice the sound," says Bravo.

The video can be seen at:

Venezuela: Luminous UFO Reported Over Cemetery
By Héctor Escalante

On March 12 2015, six people witnessed the transit of a large luminous object over the vicinity of Cementerio del Este, located in the municipality of El Hatillo in northeastern Miranda State, in the Venezuelan capital region.

"At around 10:00 p.m. we were chatting as a group on an apartment terrace when one person asked us in astonishment to look skyward, and we saw three lights forming a triangle," said Jacqueline López to journalist Héctor Escalante.

According to her account, the lights were red, white and green and blinked frequently. She said that after noticing the object - which remained static in the sky without making any kind of noise, they changed their topic of conversation to speculate on the artifact's possible origin.

"It made a sudden turn to the right, remained there for a while, and then repeated the same action in different directions," she added. The object then began descending slowly and in a straight line over a bright white light that shone from the ground, until it vanished from sight.

"The light was broad and arched, and its edges were clearly outlined. It looked like a stadium light. The impression it gave us was that it was something casting light upward from the ground," she added. The moment it lit up, she adds, "all of the dogs in the area began to bark."

It remained there for a good while, she describes, and "then it turned off" and nothing further was seen. The witness notes that no one took photos or videos because they were enthralled by the UFO and did not want it out of their sight. "We were on a terrace and our things were inside the house. I asked them to go find a cellphone and no one wanted to go, so as not to miss the spectacle."

Bolivia: UFOs Over La Paz?

Bolivia: UFOs Over La Paz?

Residents of the city of La Paz were startled by the presence of some strange lights At 19:30 hours on Sunday (04.12.15). For over half an hour, thousands of residents looked skyward to see some strange lights (not those of an airplane) that captured the public's attention. These are unidentified flying objects.

The mystery and astonishment arose due to the fact that a first light appeared, lasted some five minutes, and then mysteriously vanished. It reappeared within a minutes, maintaining its intensity. Astonishment grew with the manifestation of two more lights that escorted the first.

Half an hour after bewildering the public, these lights vanished from the skies of La Paz.

"We were heading home when we noticed a strange light dominating the city's skies. At first it was only one, then it vanished, and it made us think of an airplane. But then it reappeared, and we found it strange because it stayed there for some 20 minutes and two more lights appeared after that," said citizens to the media.

Johana [no surname given] noted that these were UFOS because the movement in the skies was odd, not related to an airplane and much less an artificial source of light. "It appeared and disappeared. It's very odd. They were UFOs," she affirmed.

A family returning from a trip around 19:30 hours along the southern end of the city of La Paz witnessed a fixed light in the sky. They thought it was an airplane, but seeing that it was motionless, and would disappear and reappear, they took out the cameras to record the scene and found - to their amazement - that two more lights were moving around the first. They contacted the press to establish the existence of the events and also alerted some neighbors.

Argentina: Strange Lights over the Islands of Ibicuy

Argentina: Strange Lights over the Islands of Ibicuy

Residents of the Entre Rios delta report that the rural roads of the Ibicuy Islands have again become the scenario for strange flashing lights, making unexpected appearances. "This is the second time it has happened during a trip that I've made from my town in Mazaruca to Ibicuy in the wilderness, at night. Some sort of incandescent lights appear, looking like flashes, lighting everything suddenly and then disappearing," claims a local resident.

A resident of the Mazaruca area of the Ibicuy Islands adds that the lights "will flood your car, like flashes, bursts, that light you up and then vanish."

"I don't think it’s the infamous evil light as many believe, since there are many stories [about them]. They don't harm you, but one is startled by the fact that they're so bright and then vanish, you almost don't get a chance to notice it, as it occurs so quickly, in a matter of seconds." The man withheld is identity in order to provide his eyewitness account.

Meanwhile, the recalled a similar experience some time ago. “I was in the company of a nephew. We were stunned, didn't know what to do about the situation, and we were even somewhat ashamed to tell our relatives, but we did it. Some believed us, others didn't."

However, this man who has his home in the rural area continued to make his usual trip without further hindrances over the years, but notes that on one such occasion: "I faced a similar light again. That scared me, because I was alone. Luckily I was unharmed," he explained. "There are many legends about the origin of these lights. Some say that these are wandering spirits and other things. The fact is that I'm not very clear about what's going on, but I've seen them on two other instances, and no one can deny me that."

Local residents are not surprised by the questions posed by AIM regarding the strange lights that cross the skies or descend toward the vehicles. They say: "Many have seen them and won't say it due to mockery, or a fear of being dismissed as madmen or drunkards," according to a local teacher. "People from the islands spend a lot of time alone, engaging in hunting or fishing, and spend months in the wilderness on certain occasions. The lights appear in this loneliness, cross their paths, or appear suddenly when they're at the river's edge, fishing. It is very hard for others to believe them unless they've seen it with their own eyes."

Mexico: Ana Luisa Cid and UFOs at Teotihuacán

Prof. Ana Luisa Cid shares a video with the readers of INEXPLICATA concerning the alleged UFO photographs taken at the world renowned Teotihuacán archaeological site, accompanied by an interview with two workers who claim having seen UFOs over the Pyramid of the Sun. Our readers will recall an article on the pioneering work of the late Pedro Ferriz Santacruz and Christian Siruget on the role played by the Mexican pyramids in the UFO phenomenon. (See “Pyramids and Ancient Astronauts” at

You can watch Prof. Cid’s video at

The following is a quick transcription of the replies to Prof. Cid's questions during the interview with the two archaeological site employees:

Alberto Galicia Hernandez. "In the distance what we've seen are black things around six, six fifteen, as the sun is going down and it gets cloudy, we managed to see an unidentified flying object moving, moving, and suddenly when I called my comrades to come have a look, it was gone. At night, during a late night patrol, I could see lights moving around on top of the pyramid, but these lights that appear to be spinning. These lights were yellow in color, but more like car headlights. Bright enough to hurt you. Well, allegedly strange things are seen here. The sighting of the lights lasted about three minutes, what we were able to see and witness. These things - in the blink of an eye or as soon as you turn around - either turned off or went away. The lights we saw had the shape of a triangle."

Andrés Alfaro Aguilar. "Well, in this area we've seen a tiny silver sphere around noon. It shines in the sun and goes from being static to vanishing very quickly toward the east or the opposite direction, but then it can't be seen. It's in the vicinity of the Pyramid of the Sun [explains the exact location of where the light is seen to land]. There is a place where the solar energy is concentrated. There is a little rod that concentrates all of the solar energy on March 21st for people to benefit from. That part over there was formerly covered in mica, but it was replaced by the little silver rod. The rod is a square located at the center of the pyramid and you have to place your finger on it, and when do so, you feel relaxed. You have to leave your finger on the rod five minutes or so. You can do this any day of the week."

Mexico: Airliner on Final Approach Reports UFO

Mexico: Airliner on Final Approach Reports UFO
By Jorge Moreno (SIPSE)

MERIDA, Yucatan - Cases involving people traveling in commercial airliners and seeing UFOs in flight are not few. In Yucatan there are at least three such reports: In one of these, a pilot was unable to publicly remark on the event due to his company's strictures, which forbid employees to discuss certain matters on account of privacy and confidentiality.

The pilot remarked that during a flight from Mexico City to Merida, he was about to land at the airport of the Yucatan's capital city when he suddenly saw an unidentified flying object that could not be seen by the control tower's radar. "I could see it physically beside the airplane, a sort of flying saucer, similar to the ones shown on videos or even television. I couldn't believe it, much less that the radar couldn't pick it up. I calculate that it was 300 meters distant, and judging by the size I could see, it had a radius of 10 meters at least," he explained.

He added: "I had already heard other reports from my fellow pilots on other flights, but like many, I wouldn't believe until I saw one. I had also heard cases in which passengers had reported them, but to tell you the truth, we didn't pay them much attention. I reject the likelihood that it could have been a bird or any other ordinary object. The technology they have must be impressive to have been so near me, yet undetectable by the airplane's radar or the control tower's radar. When it took off, it did so at lightspeed and upward. I was quite fortunate to see this. I was moved to tell many people who don't believe in the UFO phenomenon, but the company does not allow it. Several years have gone by and I don't work there anymore, so I can say it openly. Without question, there's another world watching us, as I believe Pedro Ferriz used to say, and we don't want to realize it," he concluded.

Airports and UFOs

Airports in Mexico City and all over the world are among the places where many UFO sightings have occurred. However, air traffic controllers, pilots and other personnel working in these facilities are under orders not to make it known to avoid causing panic among the population.

There are cases that have filtered through, or rather, cases in which civilian personnel have been witnesses. One of these cases occurred a little over a decade ago in the airport located at Kaua (Eastern Yucatan) where residents frequently report strange lights prowling these areas.

At first they thought the lights were part of airport operations, but soon realized this was not the case when they spoke with airport personnel, and upon discovering that these lights in the sky were coming closer and closer to the municipality and made no noise whatsoever despite flying at low altitude.

When witnesses are asked to provide descriptions, they point out that these were metallic objects measuring around two or three meters in circumference, making irregular movements, noiseless, and leaving the area vertically at high speed after circling the town. One eyewitness account that bolsters the residents of Kaua comes from retired pilot Martin Campos Faber, currently living in Cancun, and who notes that he had to make some private trips to Kaua a few years ago.

"Shortly before landing, I saw two strange vehicles, some UFOs, surrounding us. I won't deny that they caused me panic, as I thought the worse about having them so near me. But suddenly, they vanished into nothing. They took off at high speed, approached as if looking for something, or perhaps they made a mistake, and took off immediately. I can't find another explanation for it," he notes.

Cryptozoology: Argentina's Nahuelito Comes Up for Air and Planeta UFO
Date: 04.09.15 (event on 20 Feb 2015)

Cryptozoology: Argentina's Nahuelito Comes Up for Air

"It was as large as a person"

Nestor González Villareal submitted the photo taken on 20 February 2015 at 07:45 a.m. in the lagoon located only meters from the Argentinean customs checkpoint at the Cardenal Samoré crossing.

Nestor traveled with his family - all from the city of Coronel Pringles, Province of Buenos Aires. They were in San Martín de los Andes and decided to cross over into Chile. Early in the morning, while waiting for the immigration offices to open their doors, the man remarked that at that very moment: "My wife, her son and his girlfriend got out of the car. I stayed in the car with my wife's daughter. They approached the lagoon and said: "Look! A water skiier." I replied: "That's impossible at this time."

It was Rafael Olmos who took the photo with a Samsung-brand cellphone, explained the tourist to El Cordillerano. Nestor explained that after the photo was taken, "the creature disappeared, and I told my wife's son that he had just taken a photo of Nahuelito."

"You can see that it was traveling with some speed, judging by the edges of the wake it left in the water," adding, "it was really a neck and a head, and what was visible was about the size of a person, some two hundred meters (650 feet) distant.

Nestor said the following regarding the remarks made by readers of the on-line edition. "Without wanting to get into an argument about it, I know what a huala (the Chilean great Grebe, podiceps major- SC) after having seen them in several lakes of the cordillera and this wasn't one. All you see is a cylindrical body that emerges, ending in a head that imitates a cobra about to strike. It also displaces a good amount of water due to its size. If it was the animal in question, the nape of its neck isn't so voluminous and its back would be visible. Regards."

[NOTE: This alleged sighting of the elusive lacustrine cryptid did not occur at Lake Nahuel Huapi proper, but in a lake visible from the Cardinal Samoré checkpoint, possibly Lago Constancia, although the article does not say so. The great Lake Puyuhue is on the Chilean side of the border, suggesting perhaps a connection between the bodies of water in the "lake district", which are numerous. One wonders whether volcanic activity in this part of the Andes has disturbed creatures that may dwell in the lake bottoms, as the eruption of the Puyehue Volcano on June 4, 2011 was strong enough to send clouds of ash as far as Melbourne, Australia -- SC]

Paraguay: Woman Claims Having Given Birth to "El Pombero's" Baby

[Readers of INEXPLICATA will recall our colleague Andrés Salvador's masterful essay on the cryptozoological wonders of Argentina "Mythical Beings in the Creole Culture of the Argentinean Littoral" ( and the figure of "El Pombero". Today he shares with us a newspaper account of alleged cryptid carnality from the Republic of Paraguay - SC]

Paraguay: Woman Claims Having Given Birth to "El Pombero's" Baby

San Pedro (Paraguay) - It was one of those news items with everything in it. A woman gave birth to a strange creature in Colonia Santa Clara, Liberación District, Department of San Pedro, having been completely unaware of her pregnancy and showing no signs whatsoever. Furthermore, she adds that for over a year now, she has been pursued by a strange black figure - the Pombero itself.

The event caused consternation in the community of Santa Clara. The woman, whose name is Rosalía Suárez, 24, gave birth to the strange creature last Sunday, explaining that she had had a normal menstrual cycle with no signs of pregnancy beyond a sharp pain in her stomach.

For this reason, she asked her sister-in-law Andrea Villanueva to take her somewhere for help. At that moment, however, she went into labor. Both women realized that a strange entity was emerging, causing them great fear, according to poor Rosalía. Andrea said the creature was born alive and lived for some seven hours, during which time it cried in a strange way, similar to the meowing or mewling of a cat.

Rosalía admitted that for over a year she has been pursued by a strange creature she identified as El Pombero. Several times during the night, she would wake up in bed unclothed, recalling that on one instance she had fallen asleep holding on to her young daughter, only to awaken and find the child on another bed, and herself unclothed.

Pablino Villanueva, Rosalía's husband, explained that they were a rather poor family with three young children. He stated that his wife had been pursued by a strange creature for a long time and "she told me on many occasions that it would strip her naked. This Sunday we saw the strange black entity under the eaves of the house and could not see it well due to the darkness, making us suspect that it is El Pombero."

Neighbors and family members gave the newborn creature a Christian burial in the back yard of the property, praying to God for its rest.
