I recall that. The year was 1980. Makes me wonder how much better photos he would have got with todays cameras.
Unknown object photographed by Policeman over Puerto Rico:
http://www.ufoevidence.org/photographs/sec...0s/Photo391.htmBackground Information / Description:
Hundreds of witnesses observed a disc, illuminated by bright lights, flying at a low altitude over a residential quarter of Levittown. When dozens of people called the local police station, a patrol car was sent. Police Officer Sgt. José Cordero arrived just in time to observe the large disc passing directly over him. He was able to take ten photos with his official Polaroid camera.
The case was investigated by Puerto Rican UFO researcher Jorge Martin. A computer analysis performed by members of German MUFON (MUFON-CES) confirmed that it must have been a large craft.

In search of the real truth.
Some good info about that Island.
You are my Starship come take me up tonight.
Thanks for the replies -its interesting that the North East edge of the island (where a lot of the reports come from) lies at one end of the Bemuda Triangle:
Theres also this other good point made about the myth of non-disproportion:
“A check of Lloyd’s of London’s accident records by the editor of Fate in 1975 showed that the triangle was a no more dangerous part of the ocean than any other. U.S. Coast Guard records confirmed this and since that time no good arguments have ever been made to refute those statistics. So the Bermuda Triangle mystery disappeared, in the same way many of its supposed victims had vanished.”
This is completely false. Lloyd’s does not insure the smaller stuff, so all yachts go unreported and uncataloged in statistics. Lloyd’s seldom insures the smaller charter and private aircraft, so likewise for them. Lloyd’s is not the ultimate source. It is not a marine investigation bureau. It reports on sailing news relevant to insurance.
US Coast Guard SAR (Search and Rescue) statistics for all districts are published yearly in a thick voluminous report. This details the statistics for calls of assistance, causes of accidents, weather, deaths, conditions, whatever. However, missing vessels are not readily included. In reality, the designation Overdue Vessels are more important. But because it is hard to determine the number of people on board and exactly where the vessel last was, “missing” or “overdue” cannot be easily calculated. They may be catagorized under “caused by other factor” if at all. I have just received a list of vessels from the 7th district after 12 years of asking for and being denied missing vessel statistics, always receiving the reply “nobody tracks such statistics.” For the last 2 fiscal years this includes about 300 vessel names or types. And now I must start my search, to see which reported back to port (if any), what the weather conditions were like, etc.
The Coast Guard is not even capable of accurately determining the numbers, and therefore could never have conducted a study. What they probably did was comment on the popular notion that 20 aircraft and 50 ships are missing. That number was bandied about incessantly in the 1970s and is still in the Encyclopedia Britannica. This number is not extraordinary for 100 years, though it is more aircraft than elsewhere over seas.
NTSB database searches reveal that in the last decade only a handful of aircraft disappearances have occurred off New England while over 30 have happened in the Triangle. These are American statistics only, and do not reflect other nationalities.
Then there are those who claim the disparity is due to the Triangle’s greater amount of traffic. In reality, the 1st Coast Guard district answers about just as many calls for assistance as the 7th, but the number of disappearances is still remarkably different.
Fascinating report from a policeman and a pilot over Puerto Rico:
http://www.waterufo.net/item.php?id=885Reserved Matter: Gigantic UFOs in Our Coasts
Among the incidents of this type that occurred in recent years, which have upset the federal and local authorities in the Island, there are two that we will discuss briefly.
The first one has to do with the sighting, two pilots, one of them member of the Police of Puerto Rico, had in the summer of 1995, of an extraordinary flying saucer type craft in waters south of the municipality of Guayanilla.
In a conversation, the officer, who asked us to maintain his identity as anonymous for the moment, told us what they saw: "That it was incredible - said the officer.
We left in a private Cessna airplane from “Cabo Rojo (West)” to the Airport of Mercedita, in Ponce [south of the Island].
It was about 3:00 PM and it was a beautiful day, sunny, clear, without clouds. We were flying a few miles to the south of Guayanilla, over the sea, and suddenly we saw that object.... It was an incredible sight...There, submerged just below the waters, surface, was an object similar to an enormous flying saucer.
It was submerged, under water, but not very deep, and we could appreciate its details. It was a very big object, round and appeared to be metallic, opaque gray in color, like flat pewter aluminum.
It had four stories, with each smaller in diameter, like a cake, and in each floor it had what seemed to be many square windows. On the top floor or section it had a large dome, very big, also metallic. It seemed to us that it was 400 some feet in diameter. We could not believe what we saw. It was something extraordinary.
The police officer told us that they decided to examine it, circling the object and discovered, with great amazement, that the object measured at least a mile in diameter. It took them seven minutes to totally circumvent the object! The enormous object, in the shape of a disc, was just lying under water without any sign of activity, either in its interior, or outside of it.
With great astonishment and a bit scared, they decided to leave the area, landing later at the “Mercedita” Airport in Ponce. Once there, they told other people about what they saw, and they were told of similar incidents that had occurred in the region.
As it were, a couple of days after the sighting of the great UFO, better described as USO (unidentified submerged object) two fishermen from the area had an impressive encounter with a similar object perhaps the same one, of gargantuan dimensions, that exited from the sea in front of them surrounded by great luminosity. Both fishermen suffered what appeared to be severe radiation burns and were medically treated.
UFOs During War Exercises:
http://www.iraap.org/Martin/Vieques.htmSociologist and professor of the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico, Gazir Sued has been a very active member of peaceful civil disobedience groups fighting for the US Navy to stop its military exercises and bombing exercises in Vieques.
In June we met with Sued in the Camp of Justice and Peace, in front of the entrance to Camp García. This camp was organized Mr. Roberto Rabin and his wife Nilda Medina. Sued reported something that he and several other companions had observed inside the military zone:
"One night, between the 27th and 29th of April 2001, at about 9:30, we were up on Mount Carmelo, observing the zone with binoculars hoping for a sign, a Bengal light (similar to fireworks or flares) to alert the civilians that were in shooting range ... and all at once we saw an object. It seemed to be a star, but much too large, and very brilliant. It appeared suddenly, and was very brilliant, very illuminated. There was no moon that night, so it could be clearly seen and identified by the light that emanated from it, if it was something recognizable.
"We began to observe it with binoculars. It was a long oval with approximately seven smaller brilliant ovals in its interior, all along the length of its structure. It was emitting a very brilliant bluish-white light, like the light from an electric welder. It was suspended in the air, completely static and motionless. It was neither a plane nor a helicopter, nor a dirigible or blimp. We observed it for approximately fifteen minutes. Someone called us and we turned our heads for a few seconds. When we looked back again, it was gone."
Sued indicated that "... the object was suspended at an average height, and what we saw was not very far from Observation Post #1 or from the soldiers' barracks inside Camp García.That night there were a great number of Navy personnel and civilian protesters inside, so they definitively had to notice this display."
Finally, he said, "We all saw it, and we began to discuss the details of the sighting among ourselves ... but found no explanation. It was an objective fact, something we could neither deny nor explain, but it was there and we saw it.
It is not that we believe in extraterrestrial beings or anything of the sort, but a person with a scientific background could not deny the fact of what we saw. It was an unknown.
We think that it may have been one of the Navy's strange exercises ... it might be something we don't know about. Decidedly, it was an unidentified flying object suspended in the sky .. and it disappeared as suddenly as it appeared. In all honesty, I must say that there are strange things happening that cannot be accounted for, but I saw it and stand by what I have said.
It was comparable to what they mention in so-called UFO case phenomena. I think it is something that must be investigated."
Three Red UFOs/OVNIs spotted in Puerto Rico:
http://www.ufoinfo.com/roundup/v08/rnd0805.shtmlOn Wednesday, January 15, 2003, Prof. Reinaldo Rios was outdoors at his home and "noticed strange lights approaching from the west. Looking toward the mountain of Sierra Bermeja Lajas here in Puerto Rico, I saw three intense red lights. They were hovering above the mountaintop. They were red and orange. They seemed to be 100 feet (30 meters) above the mountaintop."
"These objects hovered for several minutes and then departed to the north. I phoned every radio station in my area, but I received no response about the sighting."
UFO Formations on the Firing Range:
http://www.iraap.org/Martin/Vieques.htmTestimonial evidence from Mrs. Mercedes Sanés and her husband,Don Luis Ortiz, the sister and brother-in-law, respectively, of the late David Sanés.
Mr. Ortiz was employed at the Sun Bay resort, south of Vieques, for many years. He is dedicated to part-time fishing, as are a good number of other witnesses.
"Now that you ask us about this," Don Luis Ortiz said, "I will say that I have seen some strange objects in the sky. They are large and very bright, and they are always followed by four smaller objects, also very bright.
At the distance I have seen them from, they are bigger than my Jeep" (his vehicle is about six to seven feet long).
"This gives you an idea of the size of these things. I have always seen them around 9:00 - 9:30 at night, often while working at Sun Bay.
They come from the west, moving eastward toward the area of Camp García and the navy's firing range.
I have seen them often, and for years. I have always wondered about the sound, because they are not airplanes or helicopters or anything I know of. They don't make noise, they don't have engines or turbines -- nothing at all.
They have an oval shape and are rounded. And the other smaller objects always follow the large one, as if they were in formation.The large one has a very bright yellow-orange light, and the other four are also bright, as bright as stars, and each one has a different color: white, yellow, red and blue ... and sometimes they just stop in the air."
In turn, Mercedes indicated to us that on one occasion she saw them next to her husband from the balcony of their residence in La Mina: "It called me," she said, "and when I went out, I could see it. It was a very large, very bright, golden-yellow light. It was going towards the east, towards Camp García. It always goes there, or it comes from there going to the west. That time it remained suspended in the air, very quietly, for half an hour, more or less ... and then it was gone. It was something very unusual, but we thought that it was probably something from the Navy, so we just left and didn't talk about it to anyone."
More accounts of humanoids near Puerto Rican Lagoons:
http://www.iraap.org/Martin/Vieques.htmWe were talking about the different testimonies that we had collected from the islanders -- among these were some incidents describing encounters with humanoid creatures in some of the local lagoons. At that very same moment Mr. Ortiz became somewhat exited and told us, "Yes that is true. Those little men are seen here, and not only now, they have been seen before, since long ago, for many years now."
"I am telling you this because I have seen them," he indicated. "And not only me, but also those who fish in the Kianí Lagoon. Many times, when we went fishing during the day, we saw them. They are quite quick ... and they have an incredible agility."
"Please, would you describe what you saw?" we asked.
"They are strange, Very thin, with very skinny legs resembling those of chickens. I say that because on their feet they have long thin toes, three or four of them, and they look like chicken feet because they are long, thin and opened. They are pale, white or gray, and very small, no more than three or three and a half feet in height, on average, and they have small human-like faces ... with eyes, a small mouth, nose, but with flattened, pushed in faces, not like ours since we have protruding noses, unlike them. The eyes are dark."
My wife Marleen asked how they had their hair and Ortiz answered, "they don't have any hair, and their heads are very large compared to the size of their bodies, the heads are smooth and bald."
Ortiz added that when they went to the Kianí Lagoon, located in Vieques' extreme west, they always saw several of these creatures: "We saw a few," he said, "but they were moving at an incredible speed and they were jumping and plunging into the waters of the lagoon. Their arms are also skinny ... and they have something ... I cannot explain it well, because it was dark, but it was like they had a fleshy web between their chest and their arms. And it also seemed to me that they had webbed fingers on their hands, but I am not very sure."
Close Encounter Eyewitness testimony - Puerto Rico:
On November 10, 2005, at approximately 3:00 am, my daughter and I heard a weird humming sound like a hurricane wind going by my house in Aguada, Puerto Rico (a U.S. territory).
The sound was so strange that it penetrated our ears. When my daughter and I looked outside, we observed what appeared to be a disc-shaped object moving westward towards the rear of the house where an enormous rainforest and a huge antenna are located and which leads all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.
The disc was silver in color with a row of windows around it and had a greenish haze or aura covering the craft.
All the windows appeared to be a darker greenish color. After that, my daughter and I heard the same sound at least twice a week. My daughter and I used to go to sleep at 3:00 am watching (Novelas) Spanish soap operas. Almost exactly a year ago, on Friday, April 28, 2006, at approximately 3:00 am, I heard again the same sound going by my house. At about 10 or 15 minutes later I heard my dog (Dora) barking continuously in my back yard.
When I went to investigate by turning on the back yard light (the light in the house was off) and by looking through my dining room window, I observed my dog laying on her back with her 4 legs up apparently unconscious. The dog was chained to a metal pole next to the back fence which separates my property with the rainforest in the back.
I called her name, "Dora, Dora, what's wrong Dora?"
When I lifted my eyes and looked at the back fence, which is about 25 feet from where I was standing, I observed two creatures (extraterrestrials) standing close to and behind the chain-link fence looking at me. One of the aliens was about 3 feet from the dog and the other alien was about 5 feet away from the other alien. They were about 3 and a half feet tall with a large oval head and big slanted eyes. They had pale grayish skin and a barely visible slit for a mouth and two little holes for a nose. They also had very skinny arms and they seem not to have any clothes on.
http://www.ufoinfo.com/news/puertoricoencounters.shtmlTheir legs were not showing because under the fence there was a cinder-block wall about one and a half feet high. I could only see them from the waist up. The aliens were staring at me and I was staring at them. I think that they were communicating with me telepathically because they were reading my mind when I said mentally, "I'm going to wake up my husband, Nelson,"
I left the window and walked through the hallway leading to the bedrooms. On the way to wake up my husband, they detoured me to the other bedroom to wake up my daughter instead. I woke up my daughter (17 year old at the time) and both of us went to the dining room window where we observed the creatures still standing in the same place.
Again, they stared at us and we stared straight into their large eyes for a while. My daughter said to me, Mommy, I'm going back to bed because I'm scared, then I won't be able to sleep."
I then followed my daughter to the bedroom because she was afraid to go by herself. Approximately 10 minutes later I returned to the dining room window, the aliens were still there in the same location. While staring straight into their big eyes, the one closest to the dog was telling me in my mind to open the door leading to the back yard.
I said in my mind, "I'm not going to open the door." He demanded telepathically, "You're going to open the door." I then felt myself moving towards the door and was getting drowsy.
I don't remember what happened after that. I woke up in my bed. I asked my daughter if she had seen the same thing in case I was imagining things.
She described the incident and the creatures the same way and manner I described them. We then told my husband who slept in a separate bedroom facing the back yard. he said he did hear the dog barking wildly at about 3:00am. He said that he looked out the bedroom window and saw the dog barking towards the rainforest in the back but he thought that she was barking at a cat and was so sleepy that he immediately went back to sleep. He did not look at the fence.
Please be advised that behind the back fence, where the aliens were, is an enormous rainforest that leads all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, where a huge antenna is located and is pitch black at night.
What concerns me the most is that my husband informed me that he discovered the back door opened when he got up at about 8:00 in the morning, but did not know what happened.
The dog did not want to eat or drink anything for days and was laying down apparently sick.
I feel relieved to know that I was not the only one seeing those alien beings. My 17 year old daughter saw them too.
Otherwise I, myself, would think that I was hallucinating and imagining things.
Could it be possible that I did opened the back yard door and was abducted by the aliens? I don't know. My husband found the back door opened early in the morning. In addition, I have a dotted mark on my left hand which is circular and the pain diminished as time went by since April 28, 2006.
I am a serious woman that doesn't like to lie. I never thought that we would go through something like that. I know that it is hard to believe what I had written. I understand that. But what my daughter and I saw and what my husband and I heard is the truth.
PUERTO RICO - THREE RUBY-RED LIGHTS:
http://www.paranormalnews.com/article.asp?ArticleID=680South East Coast -- A former US Infantry officer and 3,000 hour commercial pilot writes, "My wife and I live on the SE coast of Puerto Rico and we are in the habit of sitting on our roof at night looking at the sky, since it’s cooler and breezier up there.
Three months ago, at about 11 PM, on a clear night, we both became aware, simultaneously, of three ruby-red lights, bright and distinctly visible, like car taillights or red aircraft navigation lights, approaching us from south to north, as we viewed them, in a symmetric V formation, one leading and two trailing.
After three seconds of this motion, the three lights diverged, the lead light continuing straight, each of the trailing lights turning 90 degrees away from the original direction of motion. The lights passed more or less overhead as they made this divergence, then they didn’t fade away into the distance but simply vanished out of sight in about two seconds, pouf, they’re gone. We had the "impression" that they were several thousand feet above sea level, and that the rate of movement must have been much faster than our fastest fighters.
Puerto Rico: Strange Lights Reported in the Southwest -01.07.09:
http://inexplicata.blogspot.com/2009/01/pu...eported-in.htmlOn Monday, January 5, 2009 at 11:00 pm, several witnesesses reported the maneuvers of two red spheres coasting along the sea, parallel to State Highway 2, which connects the cities of Ponce and Guayanilla. According to several witnesses, both objects were traveling in formation, one following the other at prodigious speed and low altitude toward the West. On January 6 at 7:34 p.m. witnesses from Lajas, Cabo Rojo and Guánica reported three red spherical lights moving at high speed. When interviewed, these witnesses confirmed that the objects were noiseless and traveled from West to East along the sea.
Puerto Rico: Strange Lights in Late 2007
http://inexplicata.blogspot.com/2008/01/pu...-late-2007.htmlOn December 22, 2007, Wilmar and Frank were heading back toward Bayamon from the city of Ponce. Upon reaching Av. Los Filtros around 6:10 p.m., they watched the sunset and the arrival of twilight. Suddenly Wilma looked at the sky and saw what she at first thought was a jet. She quickly realized this was not the case, and that it could be a shooting star, but dismissed the possibility as the object remained in view and grew larger in size. She then thought it was a meteorite or something that had broken away and was falling toward the ground. That's when she asked Frank to look up, thinking that it was a meteorite or something similar. Frank told her it was a jet airplane. Wanda replied that those airplane left smoke in their wake, and this one had light. She added that it wasn't a normal aircraft, as it was flying forward and not the customary route followed by commercial planes.
Frank agreed with this assessment, and continued driving as they kept their eyes on the object. When they passed the Military Academy, the object stopped. Judging by the way the light came down, [the object] appeared cone-shaped. Suddenly, Wanda realized that another light of the same size pulled up beside it and then over the object. Unlike the first one, Wanda did not see a descending shaft of light from this craft. It only hung above the first one for some seconds. Then the cone-shaped object made a right turn (as if heading toward San Juan) making an "L" turn.
It did not turn like a commercial airliner would, rather in a perfect turn that startled the onlookers. Both objects moved in unison and the lights suddenly disappeared.
Puerto Rico: A Luminous Object Over Guanica:
http://inexplicata.blogspot.com/2009/03/pu...bject-over.htmlWitnesses alleged seeing the maneugers of a huge object that flew over the Vivones District of Guánica, as reported by one witness, Dolores Toro, who was sitting in his home's balcony. Mr. Toro suddenly became aware of a huge yellow object that came from the coast toward the north at high speed before vanishing into the mountains of the littoral region. A small community, Barrio El Tumbao, can be found in those mountains. Toro states that many people in that community must have seen it, as the object hovered over the mountain before vanishing in a matter of seconds. He added that everything occurred so quickly that he didn't have enough time to summon his wife to join him in viewing the enormous object that flew over the nearby mountains.
Ambulance driver reports strange creature:
http://www.paranormalnews.com/articl...ArticleID=1292In 1975, during a particularly heavy period of UFO activity in Puerto Rico, Orlando Franceschi, an ambulance driver for a Catholic hospital in the city of Ponce had returned home after 8 p.m. on the evening of April 17 when he realized that "something" was roaming around his back yard. Whatever it was, it caused Franceschi’s dog to jump into the air in a furious attempt at jumping over the fence and away from the patio. Thinking that some children may be playing a prank on him, Franceschi went outside to take a closer look, arming himself with a shovel.
The curious homeowner was soon faced by a creature he would later describe as a "zombie."
The entity allegedly had long, pointed ears, a long nose, lipless mouth and appeared to have grayish, ashen skin. It had black spots for eyes, and a jawline reminiscent of an ape’s. It ambled toward the human with a jerky, stiff gait.
Taking no chances whatsoever, Franceschi struck the five foot tall intruder with the shovel.
The creature suffered no ill effects from what Franceschi himself considered to have been a terrific blow. It merely backed off, allowing the human to strike it a second time with the garden tool, also without visible effect. When the ambulance driver was about to deliver a third shovel-blow, he felt himself becoming paralyzed and helpless.
UFO Reported over Mayaguez Zoo :
http://inexplicata.blogspot.com/sear...to+Rico+aliensDate: 4 February 2007
Location: In front of the Mayaguez Zoo
Witness: Pedro Navarro
Time: 11:10 AM
Object Description: Shining metallic oval (glowing silver) like two superimposed plates. Material glowed, no lights.
Summary: When Mr. Navarro drove past the Mayaguez Zoo, he saw a plate-shaped UFO in the sky. He described it as a shining metallic oval flying under the clouds, thus placing its altitude at some 3000 feet. Approximate angle of altitude: 15 degrees; Compass direction: SW. Movement: SE. Material was shiny and without lights.
When the witness saw it, it was static and in a matter of seconds (15 sec. Approximately) it zigzagged and headed toward a cloud, where it hid. Mr. Navarro did not get out of his car to follow its maneuvers.
Ponce, Puerto Rico: Low Flying UFO Reported:
http://inexplicata.blogspot.com/sear...to+Rico+aliensDate: 01.08.06/ 04.03.05
Time 6:27 pm
Place: Ponce, P.R.
Summary: "I would like to report the strange movement of an object flying over Ponce last weekend on 01.08.26 at 6:27 pm.
The object was dark and made erratic movements on its axis.
Its forward movement was very slow. At first it resembled a balloon, but its flight path was orderly. Given its altitude, it is unlikely that it could have been a conventional remote-control plane. I can more or less place the elevation at 1000 feet.
I love aviation and am planning to take courses to obtain my license, as I have studied aircraft since middle school fifteen years ago. As far as I'm concerned, it was neither a Cessna or Tiger small aircraft - the observation lasted some three minutes as it moved from west to east at between 15 to 30 MPH.
It flew behind OfficeMax and Wal-Mart; once it was over this last store, it made a left turn of some 100 degrees and headed toward Playa de Ponce.
Space Shuttle Footage:
http://www.redicecreations.com/specialrepo.../02feb/USO.htmlDr. Mark Carlotto recently made public an excellent report and scientific analysis on the several anomalies that appear in the videos of space shuttle STS-48 and STS-80 missions. (See Anomalous Phenomena In Space Shuttle Mission Sts-80 Video in Dr. Carlotto's 'New Frontiers in Science' web page - newfrontiersinscience.com).
Something that called our attention more specifically in that report was the event he identifies as F-1 in the STS-80 mission video, that originates, according to Dr. Carlotto's findings, in an area located to the east of Puerto Rico, specifically in a zone south of the island of Vieques.
The 'anomaly' consists of a large luminous object that seemed to come out from the sea at a point located in the south of the island of Vieques, and ascends to space, all the while being registered by the shuttle's camera. As it approaches the space shuttle, the object veers to its left and disappears from sight.
Anomalous Phenomena in Space Shuttle Mission STS-80 Video:
Images/information (PDF):Analysis of video from Space Shuttle mission STS-80 provides new insight into a number of unusual events captured by a camera aboard the space shuttle Columbia in 1996. Three different phenomena are analyzed: 1) two slow moving circular objects, 2) a number of fast moving objects in space near the shuttle, and 3) a strange luminous apparition near the earth's surface. The two slow moving circular objects have attracted a great deal of popular interest due to their disk-like shape. One seems to appear out of a cloud layer, the other moves into the camera's field of view.
The fast moving objects in space near the shuttle appear as bright streaks moving rapidly across the video frame. Analysis of their speeds and directions implies that they are not shuttle debris or meteors.Perhaps the most interesting observation is a rapidly moving burst of light that appears near the earth's surface off the east coast of Puerto Rico. Occurring well before sunrise, away from thunderstorm activity, and moving at an estimated speed of over 500 miles/sec., this is one of the most unusual phenomena observed to date by the shuttle. Its similarity to certain ground-based sightings suggests that it might represent the first observation of a new kind of atmospheric phenomenon from space.
President Clinton's Secret Special Order:
http://www.redicecreations.com/specialrepo.../02feb/USO.htmlAfter the arrests of many civilian protestors on Vieques on May 4, 2000, other events took place, some of which surprised even the political leaders of Puerto Rico. One such event was the blockade made around Vieques by US Coast Guard ships, not allowing Vieques fishermen to go out to sea and earn their daily sustenance.
A popular radio program in Puerto Rico, "Fuego Cruzado" (Crossfire), which analyzes political and social subjects, questioned the action taken by the Coast Guard. During the program, panelist Carlos Gallis‡, a pro-Independence analyst, asked under what orders the US Coast Guard acted in such a manner, as normally they would not be authorized to put up a blockade.
Soon it became known that the Coast Guard was acting under a classified order issued by President William Clinton, who declared the zone of Vieques as "...one in state of rebellion." Why would acts of peaceful civil disobedience be considered acts of rebellion?, asked the panelists.
The so-called secret, special order had been issued by President Clinton under the provisions of the US National Security Act, and it stated that the situation taking place in Vieques dangerously affected the relations of the United States with another nation, a foreign power, and emphasized that this was very dangerous to the national security interest of the United States.
The panel on the radio program asked which nation this was, as such a justifying statement to issue the order "...did not make any sense." Without knowing it, the panel touched a nerve on the subject of Vieques; it was something never discussed, having major implications and which worried US national security strategists.
The truth is that none of the nations which participated in bombing exercises with the US Navy and experimented with new weapons around Vieques represented any danger to the United States. So, to what nation or "foreign power" was President Clinton referring when he issued this classified order, and why was it classified?
The answer to this could very well be that the "foreign power" President Clinton was speaking of was an alien civilization represented by beings who seem to live underground in the areas of the El Yunque Rain Forest, in the east region of Puerto Rico, and under the sea around the area of Vieques, several miles off the west coast of Puerto Rico.
UFOs Linked to recent Cattle mutilations:
http://www.ufoinfo.com/roundup/v02/rnd02_08.shtml#6On January 12, 1997, at 2:30 a.m., Pedro Viera, a retired police officer, was driving home on Route 40 between Caguas and Humacho in Puerto Rico. All at once, he saw a disc-shaped UFO hovering over a field, levitating a bull with what he described as "a tractor beam." Bellowing in terror, the bull passed through an aperture on the bottom of the saucer and was lost to sight.
Viera immediately stepped on the gas pedal, setting off in pursuit. Speeding down Route 40, he managed to keep the UFO in sight. All at once, he was cut off by a late-model 4X4 pickup truck and forced to the side of the road.
According to Viera, two men in black BDU uniforms emerged from the truck, walked over to his car and "told me to let them do what they were doing." At first he didn't understand what the man meant; then he realized he was talking about the saucer. Having lost sight of the UFO anway, Viera continued his journey home.
Five hours later, shortly after 7 a.m., several Puerto Ricans found a mutilated cow further along on Route 40. The animal, they said, "looked as if it had been dropped from a considerable height."
Multiple UFO/OVNI sightings in Anasco:
http://www.ufoinfo.com/roundup/v02/rnd02_23.shtml#8According to the Puerto Rican newspaper El Vocero, "flying disks" were sighted by several eyewitnesses during late April 1997.
People living in the Playa section of Anasco, P.R. "reported the presence of strange flying objects over Anasco's skies. Although some of the residents declined to be identified out of fear of being laughed at, they stated that the flying disks crossed the sky in a south-north direction."
"A worker at a filling station located near State Highway 2 explained that one of the objects was circular in shape, extremely shiny, and moved at a prodigious rate of speed. 'It stood still for a moment, and six more lights came out of that thing. They flew off in different directions,' noted the witness."
"Following this, he explained, the strange flying discs fell into formation and returned to the larger object. 'They flew two-by-two and reentered the large light,' he indicated.
This version was confirmed by an Anasco farmer, who claimed having seen the strange lights as he traveled along State Highway 2 from Mayaguez to this community (see few posts back).
Cyndrical Orange UFO/OVNI sighted in Puerto Rico:
http://www.ufoinfo.com/roundup/v05/rnd05_13.shtml#3On Friday, March 24, 2000, at 6:50 p.m.,Luz Guzman and Orlando Pla were driving on Monserrate Avenue in Carolina, Puerto Rico, approximately 8 kilometers (5 miles) east of San Juan, when they spotted a UFO.
"A high altitude unidentified flying object was seen flying across the skies from north to south over the San Juan and Bayamon metropolitan area. The object looked like a thin orange line of about one inch length at a 20 degree angle from the observers' position."
"The object crossed the skies in a few minutes at the same line of horizontal trajectory until it was out of view."
"The orange color was very vivid, maybe was a result of the sunlight shining from below since the incident occurred during sunset. The perfect horizontal trajectory also dismisses the possibility of it being related to a burning satellite re-entering the atmosphere" or a meteor glancing off the atmosphere.
Two more UFO sightings in Puerto Rico:
http://www.ufoinfo.com/roundup/v05/rnd05_15.shtml#7On Saturday, March 25, 2000, at 5:50 p.m., two high-flying UFOs were seen over San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico.
"The objects were seen by several dozen eyewitnesses as they were traveling in opposite directions,one was traveling west at an approximate heading of 295 degrees magnetic. The other was traveling east at a heading for 115 degrees magnetic."
"At least one of the eyewitnesses, Celestino 'Junior' Ortiz, popular radio announcer on (radio station) Alpha Rock 105.7 FM, was able to capture both objects on his camcorder."
"As he was leaving his house, Ortiz, his wife and son, and friends spotted the mysterious object heading west at a 20-degree angle. He reached for his camcorder and began filming. The objects initially looked like comets or meteors entering the atmosphere. The object traveling east passed high above the eyewitnesses, said the members of his family. No sound of jet engines or sonic boom was heard as it flew by."
In early March 2000, Wally Durand Urbino of the Puerto Rican UFO Research Group reported a UFO sighting in the city of Isabella, P.R. "Luminous balls were seen. The witnesses reported that the luminous spheres departed in the direction of the mountains, heading north
and then veered towards the east, heading out over the Atlantic Ocean, becoming lost in the sea mist".
Unidentified Submerged Objects:
http://www.sott.net/articles/show/16...nderwater-UFOsIt was author and researcher Dr. Ivan T. Sanderson who suggested that aliens could remain undetected by building their bases beneath the world's oceans.
Dr. Sanderson found that by actual count, over 50 percent of the UFO sightings had occurred over, coming from, or plunging into or coming out of water. This includes oceans, seas, lakes, and reservoirs. Of the oceanic UFOs (some term them USOs or Unidentified Submersible Objects), one was tracked by the U.S. Navy near Puerto Rico in 1963.
Of course many of these objects have been tracked over Puerto Rico since that time.
On a training maneuver, a sonar operator detected a sub aqueous object traveling at over 150 knots!The technicians tracked this object for four days and it maneuvered down to the incredible depth of 27,000 feet. Submarines of 1963 could not dive further than a fraction over a mile into the ocean deeps.
What kind of submersible could withstand the tremendous ocean pressures? And how could it overcome the tremendous resistance of water moving at such incredible speeds?
Puerto Rican USO Incident -February,1963:
Relative depths:100 miles off the northern shores of Puerto Rico lies the deepest valley in the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean, the Puerto Rico Trench. It is a crescent-shaped formation 1,090 miles in length and 60 miles wide formed by shifting plates in the Tertiary period (66.4 million years ago). Part of this trench is known as the Milwaukee Depth (so named after the vessel which first measured it) and descends to 27,493 feet below sea level.
In 1963 the United States Navy had a fleet of ships, submarines and aircraft off the coast of Puerto Rico performing training in antisubmarine manoeuvres, with the USS WASP (CV-18), an aircraft carrier, serving as the command ship. During the exercises the vessels detected an unknown sonar target moving in the area. One of the submarines moved to pursue and investigate. The submarine could not catch it.
For four days the fleet tracked the unknown object and recorded that it moved at more than 150 knots (over 170 mph) and descended to over 27,000 feet. The fleet communicated this encounter to their Naval base at Norfolk, Virginia.
At the time of this incident, the top speed of submarines was 45 knots and their greatest depth 3,000 feet.
In 1960 a bathyscaphe (Trieste 1958-1963) reached 35,800 feet below sea level but had only slow movement capabilities.
UFO Filmed over Santiago, Puerto Rico:
http://www.ufocasebook.com/santiagofilm.htmlPuerto Rico-I installed my Canon Powershot S80 camera on a tripod to film the landscape for 3-4 minutes. I was using a film speed of 15 f/p/s. At second 40, the object flies across the path transversally to the top in approximately 1 second.
I only realized the object was there when I was watching the film on my television. This is the clearest sighting of many which have been made in Santiago, Chile. There are many other witnesses that back up this type of sighting. What I am sending is a frame capture of a 200 megabyte video file.
Puerto Rico: UFO Sighting Over Guanica -August 7, 2007:
http://www.ufocasebook.com/guanica.htmlAn Unidentified Flying Object was seen overnight in the town of Guánica on Puerto Rico's southern coast. Several witnesses spending the night at one of the many beaches in this community, commonly known as "el pueblo de la amistad" (the town of friendship) reported seeing the object from a beach known as El Tamarindo, located near the Copamarina Hotel. The witnesses numbered some 17 people, some of who were enjoying the cool seaside breeze, others fishing.
At approximately 21:00 hours (9 pm), a strange light reportedly emerged from nowhere, described as a multicolored object shaped like a spinning top. Witnesses Maritza Martinez and her husband Geraldo Cuevas contacted this researcher to say that a smaller light emerged from the object and fell into the sea; another witness who did not want to be identified said that this was not the first time that he had seen lights exhibiting similar behavior, and he had had other experiences as a nocturnal fisherman in the vicinity of the Guánica beach area.
PUERTO RICO: Giant UFO Over Guanica:
http://www.ufocasebook.com/2008/guanicaufo.htmlJanuary 19 2008-Last night, January 18 2008 at 10:15 p.m. on the coastal sector of Guanica (southwestern Puerto Rico) an enormous classic "flying saucer" object was reported, with hundreds of rows of red lights surroudning it.
Before the sighting, the witnesses alleged -- and I confirm what they said -- having heard an airplane flying overhead at exactly that time, as I was watching television at that hour. The witnesses were more numerous in the upper area of Vivones when they observed the transit of the airplane, followed by this round, enormous flying artifact with red lights.
The object rested for several minutes on a nearby hill, at very low altitude, nearly treetop level, blinding witnesses with its red lights. Among them were Roberto Garcia and wife Patricia, who tried to photograph the object with their cell phone but didn't manage to obtain an image. Other local residents were frightened and unable to sleep that night after the object took off toward Lajas at high spped. The witnesses told me that this is not the first case that they've seen in the at this hour of the night.
The object made no sound whatsoever, the night was clear and full of stars, and the aerostat could be seen at low altitude and in the distance. It is impossible to mistake the Lajas Aerostat with the object reported by the witnesses.
Puerto Rico: Startling Light Appears in Guanica's Vivones District
Inexplicata-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology
October 20, 2007-A strange yellow light was reported today (Saturday, October 20th) in the Vivones District of the city of Guanica.
Mr. Dolores Toro and his wife, accompanied by a niece, were chatting calmly when they suddenly heard a sound described as "when a damaged hen's egg explodes." Shortly after, the witnesses reported seeing a reddish light appearing from the balcony to the house, and then passed in front of them. A neighbor [interviewed by J.A. Martinez] remarked that she had seen the strange light that lit her house "like daylight", according to Mrs. Diana Santiago, a neighbor of Mr. Toro.
Mrs. Santiago thought at first that Mr. Toro was shining a flashlight into her home, and he quickly told her that no, that it was that strange light that came out of nowhere and vanished. Another local resident was able to see the luminous object as it descended from the sky and according to her, the object that caught everyone unawares had something like "two tails".
PUERTO RICO: Strange Object Reported Over Ponce
http://www.ufocasebook.com/tworeportspr.htmlAs of the time of this writing, the Puerto Rico Police and the Rangers Department of Natural Resources of the City of Ponce (southern P.R.) have advised us that a strange fiery object has fallen from the sky before the startled eyes of hundreds of witnesses in the Anon District of the Ponce.
The exact nature of these events is unknown; lights are emerging out of thin air in Guanica and travel across back yards, and now this object has fallen out of the sky in Ponce. We will see what the local press has to say about this in coming minutes. For the time being, authorities are classifying the strange fiery object as "a private plane."

PUERTO RICO: FOLLOW-UP on the Guanica UFO
Inexplicata-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology
January 25, 2008--We are continuing our report on the sightings of strange lights over the town of Guanica which have been taking place since last Friday. The sightings are ongoing. The day after having reported on the huge, classical saucer-shaped UFO, more detailed information was received from another district near the previous one (Vivones).This time the report came from Puig, near the town of Guanica. Behind this district we find the notorious Lajas Valley. Several witnesses reported seeing a strange light, bright orange in color, appear out of nowhere at low altitude close to them.
This luminous phenomenon did not make any noise or perceptible sounds. This incident took place at an early time -- 8:10 p.m. -- and the objects maneuvers were a zig-zag in the same location very low altitude before taking off toward Lajas at an incredible speed. Jose Hernandez is not a believer in UFOs and says that he had never seen one in his life until that evening, and cannot explain what he saw with his own eyes. His brother in law added that he nad never seen anything like it either, and that he was impressed to see this object such a short distance away from them.
Two Police Officers from Guanica Report UFO on Guanica Back Road Toward Lajas:
http://www.ufocasebook.com/2008/guanicafollowup.htmlSunday, January 20, 2008-Two municipal policemen on their day off were spending time with their families at La Parguera, Lajas. (The officers' names will not be disclosed at their request). When both families departed the La Parguera district, they made ready to return to Guanica using a back road known as Los Hornos, a lonely road that runs from Ensenada de Guanica to Parguera -- deserted and without electric lighting except for some intersections and the odd house.
Taking advantage of the darkness, one of the officer pulled over to urinate. When this physiological imperative was nearly over, he noticed that there was on object nearby -- hovering at low altitude and perfectly dark. Frightened, he ran back to his car. The object suddenly turned on its lights and followed them all the way back to Ensenada de Guanica. The object stopped following them once they reached the area that has good public lighting.
Puerto Rico may build UFO Airport:
http://www.ufodigest.com/ethighway.htmlLAJAS, Puerto Rico Mayor Marcos Irizarry's is supporting the building of a UFO landing strip to welcome extraterrestrials that are frequently seen over the area. A green sign in southwestern Puerto Rico proudly displays a silhouette of a flying saucer and two words: "Extraterrestrial Route," for Route 303.
The majority of the people in the town have seen UFOs and other strange phenomenon. "It's a very mysterious place," said Irizarry, who says he once saw red lights zigzagging above the hills.
Francisco Negron, the farmer who put up the sign and allows UFO watchers to gather at his ranch, volunteered his property for the landing strip. They estimate the project could cost up to $100,000. They claim they heard a boom and saw the hill go up in flames when a UFO crashed on the hill in 1997.
The mayor hopes that UFO enthusiasts will flock to Lajas. Hundreds of visitors have already come to check out the Extraterrestrial Route since the new sign went up, Irizarry said.
Lajas is unique because of its numerous UFO sightings and Laguna Cartagena National Wildlife Refuge and lagoon that is known for bird watching.
Besides UFOs, 127 different types of birds have been observed as well as balls of light coming and going into the water.
At 10:30 PM, on May 30, 1987, a large red buzzing ball of light was seen descending into the lagoon.
At 2:AM on May 31st, people in the area were awakened by a blinding white light and saw a huge disc shaped object with brilliant lights circle slowly over the water, as if looking for something.
The following afternoon at 1:55 a huge underground explosion followed by a tremor shook the area. Cracks opened in the ground and cobalt blue smoke issued from them.
As if an earthquake followed by blue smoke wasn't jarring enough, residents whose houses bordered the lagoon were forcibly evacuated by members of the U.S. military in grey HUMVEE's and tan four-wheel drive vehicles sporting radar-like rotating antennae on their tops.
As they were being herded away from their homes, residents saw men in what appeared to be decontamination suits sweeping the ground with long-handled devices reminiscent of metal detectors and taking samples of water, plants, mud and grass.
The next day a helicopter lowered an instrument package into the lagoon. For the next several days witnesses saw a strange flying dumbbell come in from over the sea and hover over the lagoon.
It was a metallic cylinder with large balls of greenish-white light on the ends and a beacon-like red and blue light on its underside.
During the next several days reports of UFO activity in the area increased dramatically, but also a large four engine commercial jet made a low pass over the lagoon.
A Ufo Base Beneath the Sierra Bermeja Range in SW Puerto Rico?
http://www.geocities.com/area51/shadowland...3/bases065.htmlDuring his recent visit to Puerto Rico, Bob Pratt, U.S. investigator, said: “Puerto Rico is incredible. In other parts of the world you see a wave of a certain type of case for a certain time and in a certain place - but here all types of UFO cases are occuring everywhere all the time. You see UFOs entering or leaving the sea, entering into mountains, landings, encounters with entities, abductions, physical examinations, military jets pursuing UFOs and vice-versa, encounters with “Bigfoots” - in fact the lot! Puerto Rico is a veritable “paradise” for the investigator who has dedicated himself to probing the entire UFO situation”.
On many occasions the residents of Boquerón, Las Palmas, and Betances (all in Cabo Rojo Municipal Region) and of Olivares (in Lajas Municipality) have observed large UFOs of different shapes (triangles, discs, cigars, etc.) hanging stationary over the Cayúl Peak and over the mountain where the building of the alleged Voice of America Station is located. What are the UFOs looking for so persistently up there?
In our last issue (EVIDENCIA OVNI No.1) we published an article on the strange death of Diego Segarra, the fisherman from Cabo Rojo.
We reported on the experience of a person close to him, who made a video film of the landing of a UFO on the Sierra Bermeja, and of the emergence from it of two “Grey” beings and of a tall, human, ‘albino’ type of person who left the site in a military jeep driven by two soldiers. The spot where this happened, according to the fisherman Segarra, was at the foot of the El Cayúl Peak.
