- We have just received word from our colleagues Guillermo
Gimenez and Luis Burgos that a UFO "Mothership" may be responsible
for a blackout in the notorious hotspot city of Salta, in the Argentinean
northwest. The story is developing, so we expect to post several updates
today. This is the first item received by Inexplicata.
- Did A Mothership Cause A Major Blackout?
- By Luis Burgos
- The fact that my organization, FAO (Fundacion Argentina
de Ovnilogia) can rely on the assistance of over a hundred people distributed
across the country, whether as collaborators, consultants or correspondents,
places us at a great advantage in securing instant UFO information. In
earlier times, we would learn of cases by mail weeks later, or by phone
when the service was operational. An example of this can be seen in the
Province of Salta, where researcher and private pilot Tony Galvagno, known
for spearheading investigations into the 1995 Salta UFO Crash, which prompted
his small plane to plummet from the air [...]
- This morning we received an urgent call from Tony, saying
that the transit of a "flying cigar" overhead with flashing intermittent
lights and a red beacon on its structure, had caused an enormous BLACKOUT
in the town of Joaquin V. Gonzalez, where he lives, as well as in adjacent
communities, some 20 minutes after having appeared. Practically the entire
department of Anta had "collapsed" as far as its power grid was
- Dozens of residents reported seeing the UFO after 0100
hours today (Thursday, November 26) on a hot and stormy night. The final
trajectory of this object was south-southwest, in other words toward El
Tunal, some 35 kilometers from Joaquin V. Gonzalez and bordering the Pasaje
Juramento River. As hours went by, Salta's power company (ENDESA) could
not find a cause for the blackout until the light returned around noon
yesterday, but telephone service remained out of order. Early in the afternoon,
a "burned-out turbine" was found at the El Tunal power station.
In other words, along the UFOs heading.
- In this state of affairs, and given the magnitude of
the events, we made the pertinent contacts with [INEXPLICATA contributing
editor] Guillermo Gimenez being among the first to learn of the situation.
Phone calls were made to and from Salta, confirming the manifestation of
a large UFO. The regional and national press was informed, and their morning
editions have probably prepared new information as communications are reestablished.
Certainly El Tribuno and Salta's Diario Popular will carry the story.
