- UFO Sightings Over Seville Continue
- The province of Seville appears to be experiencing a
startling amount of UFO activity. In addition to cases involving landings
and humanoid encoutners in recent months, we must add a new event of which
details have already been made known. This sighting occured in the vicinity
of the town of Aznalcollar.
- Around 21:45 hours that evening, L.L.R. was heading back
toward Seville after spending a day working in the Sierra de Hueva. The
witness was driving along the road belonging to the Aznalcollar-based Boliden-Apirsa
mining company (currently closed), when he saw a small light in the distance
which appeared to be crossing the road.
- "As I approached I thought it might be a motorcycle,
and that it would stop at the crossing to yield," he told us. The
driver, believing that the light belonged to a normal vehicle, did not
slow down, but was struck by the bluish-white hue of the light. When he
was some 20 meters away from the object, he realized that the "thing"
appeared not to be aware of his presence. "I kept getting closer,
and when I saw that it had no intentions of braking, I flashed it
with my high beams without slowing down. Next thing I knew, that thing
was right in front of my car."

with the small spherical UFO.
- At that very same moment, the driver thought that an
impact was inevitable and imagined his vehicle running over the alleged
motorcycle. However, none of that occurred.
- "I collided against it and turned away, expecting
an impact, but it didn't occur. There was only an explosion of multicolored
lights. I got out of the car to see what happened, but there was nothing
on the road! No accident, no casualty, nothing whatsoever! I became hysterical.
I scanned the length of the road and even looked under my car, but found
no traces of glass or other materials..and of course, there were no casualties
- Although the witness found no signs of an impact, the
hood of his car showed signs that something had indeed made contact with
the vehicle. "I thought that if I'd collided with something, the front
of the car must be very damaged," admitted L.L., "but when I
looked there was nothing, only some sort of a thick water that vanished
upon touching it...nothing more...I thought I was going to pass out, but
I was glad not to have run anyone over. I returned to Seville as calmly
as I could, but I had trouble starting the car, and the battery refused
to work. The following day I took it to the shop and I was told it looked
new...but, given its age, it should be nearly exhausted."
