One of the reasons why people do not believe in Unidentified Flying Objects is because of the saying “what you see is what you believe”. While this may not be applicable at all times, in most cases, it could be the reason UFOs have received extreme negative criticisms. Among the many UFO reports, the Bolivia incident is one of the strangest stories that circulated in the media. Unlike any other reports, the witnesses of this event are not one or two, but thousands of people.
At about 4:15 p.m. on May 6, 1978, there is something strange object crashed on the mountain near El Taire, specifically on the Bermejo River. This is the border between Argentina and Bolivian province. There are thousands of people who saw the incident. At first, the object is hard to describe as it is not apparent. Later on, the object was described as cylindrical in shape that has a luminous tail. It was flaming and has caused a supersonic bang that was heard about 150 miles away. On the next day, they were papers that speculated about the incident in the labeled godforsaken place.
The Statements Uncovered
Even if thousands of people were there, there have been explanations that range from UFOs to meteorites up to Apollo capsule. The army was convinced that the crashed object was a UFO. As proof, they stated that their men have discovered the crashed object and inspected it. It appeared as a 12 ft dull metallic cylinder extended with a few dents. Unfortunately, no one knows what is inside it. Juan Hurtado, the Policeman, had also seen the incident and it described as a massive wine container that emits a trace of white smoke. He claimed that he saw it clearly. The eye witnesses gathered these statements.
They are waiting for the arrival of technical commissions. They are also waiting for the NASA expert to arrive.
