- GRANADA - UFOs in Granada?
It's possible. It would seem that Unidentified Flying Objects are flying
almost nightly over the El Domingazo neighborhood, according to the accounts
provided by at least a dozen local residents interviewed by EL NUEVO DIARIO.
- One day we were approached by our friend Sebastián
Arista Guadamuz, 38, a resident of the aforementioned neighborhood, which
is located in this city's northern end. Arista told us he, his wife and
many other locals have seen flying saucers around 7 p.m. almost every night
over what used to be a distillery some three blocks to the north.esidente
en el mencionado barrio, localizado en el extremo norte de esta ciudad.
- Sebastián and his wife, Teodora Ruiz Espinoza,
claim that their hair stood on end when they saw a shiny round object flying
over the neighborhood and head off toward the east. The Aristas even say
that their daughter saw the strange, saucer-shaped craft which crossed
the sky, leaving two fiery tails in its wake. "The child was frightened
by what her eyes was seeing, " said Mr. Arista.
- On our own part, we toured the area on Thursday afternoon,
corroborating the story provided by Arista with several neighbors. Among
other persons, we spoke with Rosa Isabel Trejos Nuñez, 28, who claimed
having seen, in the company of two other people, "something like
a fireball with a fiery tail" on Wednesday night.
- EVER SINCE DECEMBER
- Aside from the sightings this month, Rosa Isabel told
us: "We saw it pass in early December". She was calm and relaxed,
stating that there is no fear whatsoever as a result of this nocturnal
vision, and that they do not believe that Martians are visiting Earth,
because "we think [such things] are normal."
- Alvaro Antonio Iglesias Lacayo, 16 , claims having seen
the same phenomenon, which frightened both him and his sister Maria Luisa,
24. Alvaro says that he and his sister saw "how something round broke
off from the object and dropped downward on Wednesday night, on the south
side. It flew downward as though about to land. As it went down, the light
became brighter, as thought it was looking for a runway."
- The young Granadian saw the object in his sister's company
from an area to the south of the El Domingazo neighborhood, from where
the Mombacho Volcano can be seen. The saucer, according to Alvaro, "was
green in color, but as it went downward, an immense yellow light turned
- Jesús Pacheco Cortez,18, also saw the strange
object on Tuesday night. "We saw a flash, like that, leaving a light
behind which suddenly turned off before reaching Managua. It was about
nine o'clock at night," reported Pacheco.
- Efraim Ruiz saw the same thing: &laqno;A fireball. I
was with them. We saw a fireball leaving a trail of yellow light. It left
it over a long distance before turning itself off, very slowly. It flew
high, at the height of an airplane, but at high speed. Some of our friends
were saying, hey, there goes an airplane, but no, that thing was like a
meteorite. It was fast. It suddenly disappeared.»
- We contacted Captain Andrés Calero, a senior officer
with the 4th Army Command and consulted this matter with him. The Nicaraguan
Army officer said that he had no information regarding the strange phenomenon,
but assured us that he would contact Captain Belanguer of the Civil Defense
and ask him to look into the matter. en el Cuarto Comando Militar, ayer
(viernes) y le consultamos sobre el asunto.
- ALSO IN JINOTEPE
- Residents of Jinotepe have also gotten used to seeing
the passage of vehicles that aren't at all strange, since they are aircraft
plowing the Nicarguan route, probably headed for Panama or Venezuela..
- These aircraft fly with intermittent lights, as though
coming from Managua toward the Great Lake of Nicaragua, but at very high
altitude. There are other nights on which what used to be identified as
shooting stars could bee seen, but given the fact that they pass at regular
times, could possibly be satellites reflecting the sun's light
