"The UFO phenomenon may well be one such challenging area of
interest even though it is seemingly out of place in our present world picture...
The study of this frequently reported phenomenon may offer us an enticing glimpse
of and point a beckoning finger to the future"- Dr. J. Allen Hynek
A survey of Ufology in South America would not be complete without including a few
significant cases histories. The most important and perhaps the best studied incident in
Argentina is the Trancas case, but since it has been discussed satisfactorily in the
literature it would be redundant to add it here.
The Isla de Lobos
sighting in Uruguay and the
Yacanto, Argentina photo, are hardly
known outside their respective countries. However, both are unique cases that remain
unexplained and should be presented to the non-Spanish speaking public.
"Nobody will ever give you or me a dime to do serious research on UFOs. But if we were to cross the line of professional ethics and went back on stage pretending we had
the answer with a capital A, and told these people Ufology was the cure to all their
spiritual anxieties, we could raise a million dollars today."- Dr. J. Allen Hynek
