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.
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 on."
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.
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
