Hundreds of people in Cachi's main square, among them artists
participating in an art fair and were creating sculptures and
paintings on site, saw a large unidentified flying object (UFO)
that crossed the skies over Cachi on Thursday night.
"It was truly impressive. I'd heard people say that this
phenomenon was recurrent in the region, but I never thought I'd
have the privilege to see such a sharp, clear and disturbing
sighting, since I'm unable to find a logical explanation for the
phenomenon I've just seen with my own eyes" said Javier

known to us" explained the expert.
"From our position" Rodriguez added, "we can say that it had
the size of a dessert plate. In other words, some 50 cm across,
which makes me dismiss the possibility that it was a satellite,
which are as small as a star and follow a fixed trajectory and
constant spped. I cannot say, obviously, that it was a
spacecraft from another world or from our own, but I can tell
you that it was a phenomenon as inexplicable as it was
On the other hand, Antonio Zuleta, consulted by El Tribuno,
said: "there were so many witnesses to the event that the debate
about alien civilizations was a subject of lengthy discussions
at coffeehouses, restaurants and other establishments in town,
which is now filled with tourists, many hoping to have their own
Fortunately, it occurred at peak hours on an afternoon with a
clear sky, as is customary [in Cachi" he emphasized.
