- *Havana-based researchers have a great deal of eyewitness
and film evidence*
- An intense wave of unidentified flying object (UFO) activity
has been taken place in the island of Cuba in recent years. Havana-based
researchers have made a series of documentaries and books in which eyewitness
accounts and filmed evidence are made known.
- In late April 2002, Canadian. researcher Mike Bird, following
a visit to the island, was able to verify that UFO activity in Cuba is
much more intense than is currently known. During his latest visit, he
was able to interview five UFO researchers in Havana, who disclosed information
on the intense wave of activity over the Caribbean island.
- Bird relates that he was able to see a video entitled
:"UFOs over Cuba" by researcher Octavo Cortazar, which shows
clear and broad evidence of this presence on Cuban territory. Likewise,
researchers gave him a 300 page book entitled "Signs" which discusses
the rich history of UFO sightings in Cuba throughout the ages. This information
was disclosed by Mexican researcher Daniel Munoz.
- Perhaps one of the most spectacular cuban cases involved
peasant Adolfo Zarate, who witnessed the appearance of a UFO and its subsequent
landing 60 meters away. "The device landed and someone who looked
like a christian (i.e., human being), wearing something like a gas mask
and dessed in cammo, came out. The ship was also camouflaged, grass-colored.
It was raining heavily. He got down and inspected the craft. He then leaned
against a door and spoke to someone in the cockpit. I think he was collecting
some rice shoots or ripping out a "malanga" (coco-yam) plant.
After climbing up a ladder, the thing let out a gout of blue fire. The
only thing I felt was the pressure of the air expelled through its exhaust."
"It was the size of a touring machine. I don't know if it was made
of wood or iron, or if it was made of air (sic). But it lacked wings and
propellers and was noisless. It looked like a flattened egg. A turtle that
landed on two legs, like shock absorbers. To me, the device had skates,
because it left its wheels well marked. The christian's (i.e., human being)
face could not be seen, but he resembled a normal man. I didn't notice
him bearing arms," he told the sunday newspaper Juventud Rebelde de
