Prof. Sebastian José Tarde, MD, a prominent physician and later director of the Mendoza Central Hospital, spent the year´s end with his students in Bariloche, a popular holiday ressort in the Argentinien Andes. When the group shipped on the Nahuel Huapi-Lake, the Professor shot some photos with his Leica camera. Only after he got them back from development he realized that he had photographed an orange disc over the mountains. Two photographic experts from Mendoza analysed the original slide and concluded that the object cannot be a lens flare nor a mistake in the film. They were sure that it ins indeed a real object. Indeed UFOs are frequently seen over the Lake, and several sightings were reported in 1999 and 2000.
