The UFO Phenomenon

Uruguayan Navy officer once claimed that he almost shot an alien

Who or what did Corporal Fuentes encounter that night ? Image Credit: sxc.hu
An unnerving encounter with three mysterious entities occurred back in 1972 at a lighthouse on Isla De Lobos.
The incident, which occurred on October 28th of that year, began when five Navy personnel were stationed at the lighthouse to perform basic maintenance duties.

At just after 10pm, one of the men - Corporal Fuentes - had decided to go and check the generators while the others remained in the living quarters drinking and playing cards.

As he began walking towards the lighthouse (which was around 45 meters away), Fuentes spotted something on the building's terrace that he was unable to explain.

Concerned, he returned to his cabin to retrieve his pistol, but did not alert the other men.
Upon returning to the lighthouse, he noticed that the mysterious object was made up of several lights and that these were illuminating what appeared to be three humanoid figures.

Suddenly, all three of them were looking straight at him, prompting him to raise his pistol, however an unexplained force compelled him not to shoot.

He watched as the three entities re-entered the object, which then ascended straight up while emitting a strange humming sound. Once it had reached a height of around 45 meters, it tilted, produced a bright fireball from underneath it and zoomed off in silence towards the south-east.

To this day, no explanation for what he had experienced that night has ever been found.

  Thanks bill, I guess i didnt look hard enough, i admit i didnt read every word my brain has been off lately but i did read 99% What i gather is we have just a story from Fuentes with basically zero supportive evidence it ever happened. Assuming the investgation was real and it did happen i too am sold it was a chopper still there were a few holes so to speak. I have a friend i have known almost all my life he is like they describe the witness in this story a bit slow, he also joined the navy during the gulf conflict and was given the job of boiler tech which i believe is a bit lower than gu...

I guess it's very boring in Uruguay. Internet outage?

There's a bunch of Barred owls that hang out behind our place and they can get really noisy, sometimes in the middle of the night. But I don't think I've ever thought they were aliens, even if I was drinking.

I dont believe drinking was the only issue by a long shot, https://skeptoid.com/episodes/4331 I also believe something did lite the fuse for this one and while i cant swear it was owls i sure will not make any leap to it being aliens.

I’m going to fix this story for you:   ”The incident, which occurred on October 28th of that year, began when five Navy personnel were stationed at the lighthouse to perform basic maintenance duties. At just after 10pm, one of the men - Corporal Fuentes - had decided he needed to pee while really drunk… used the excuse to go and check the generators while the others remained in the living quarters drinking and playing cards. As he began walking towards the lighthouse (which was around 45 meters away), Fuentes spotted something on the building's terrace that he was unable to focus on. Dr... [More]
