Encounter with aliens by a Uruguayan navy sailor in 1972

Uruguay was the first country in South America to establish an official UFO agency in 1979. Later, other countries such as Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Argentina followed the Uruguayan example.

There are not many UFO sightings reported in Uruguay, but the Lobos Island sightings case is the best UFO case thanks to a detailed investigation conducted by members of the C.I.O.V.I. research team..

On October 28, 1972, five people were at a lighthouse located on Isla De Lobos, a small island a few kilometers off the coast of Uruguay. At that time, the lighthouse served as the headquarters of the Navy. The five Navy personnel who were in the specified building were Corporals Juan Fuentes Figueroa, Jose Gomez and Hector Gimenez, Jose Lima and Senior Officer Francisco Cascudo.

After dinner, everyone rested, and at about 22:10 Corporal Juan Fuentes went for a routine inspection of the electric generators located at the base of the lighthouse. When he started walking to the generators, his attention was attracted by strange lights on a hill, which was a terrace, at a height of about 6 meters above the ground.

The light seemed to him quite unusual. At first he thought it was the headlights of a car, but it wasn't. He decided to check them out and took a gun with him without telling the other fighters about it.

He took the safety off the gun and started approaching the lights. He saw a ship that seemed to him of different colors - white, yellowish and purple. The lights allowed him to see a strange figure standing next to the object, and two more figures descending from the ship.

The first two figures noticed Fuentes approaching them with a gun. He pointed his hand with the weapon at the figures and was ready to pull the trigger, but could not do it because he was paralyzed. At some point, he felt physical effects such as "vibration" and goosebumps. In addition, he heard a voice in his head that said: "Don't shoot, because it's useless."

After that, the entities returned to the ship. The door closed from the side, and the ship began to move straight up, making a humming sound until it reached a height of about 45 meters. Then it tilted, erupted from the bottom of a dazzling fireball and disappeared into silence at great speed in the direction of the southeast.

The ship had the shape of an inverted bowl with a diameter of 4 to 5 meters. It had a dome on top and a rectangular opening or door through which entities descended. He also had supports that he could clearly see as the ship slowly gained altitude. These supports did not fold like the landing gear of an airplane, but were removed telescopically. The surface of the device was undoubtedly metallic, somewhat reddish in color, which Fuentes compared to mahogany. The most distinctive feature of the object was the antenna on its top, shaped like a corkscrew and rotating

According to Fuentes::

Fuentes returned to the lighthouse and told the rest of the people about what he had seen. No one believed his story about the flying saucer, except for sub-Officer Cascudo. After that, he was ordered to report his observation to a higher-ranking officer, who listened to him very carefully.

Fuentes said that there were two officers, presumably from the US Embassy, who recorded what was happening. According to him, they were from the "Spatial Investigation Service". While he was waiting in the corridor, someone showed him drawings of UFOs, asking which one could be closer to the ship he had seen.

The Americans did not talk to Fuentes directly, but they were surprised that he came closest to the ship. The entire observation lasted a minute, and Fuentes had a direct view of the object for 15 seconds. Despite the fact that it was the observation of one witness, this is one of the best cases from Uruguay.

Fuentes went through interrogations, where he was supported by Lieutenant Colonel Cascudo. He described Fuentes as "a simple and honest man, unable to come up with a story of this kind." It was concluded that the probability that the witness is telling the truth is high. The Isla de Lobos case has become one of the best UFO sightings in South America.
