UFO News Article: “Youth Says He Saw UFO Land”

19 July 1965
(The Spokesman-Review, Spokane, Washington)
The whole article:
“Latin Americans watched for flying saucers Sunday as reports of a landing spread across Latin America.
A youth was reported as saying he saw a four-legged object touch down for two minutes in broad daylight Saturday (17 July 1965) on a beach just across the River Plata in Uruguay.
He was quoted in Buenos Aires as saying the object shot skywards in a blinding flash after a tug hooted a siren.
One of several Uruguayans who claimed to have seen the object on Honda Beach said it had a circular center, with flattened, oval extensions on either side.
A Roman Catholic review, commenting on the recent spate of strange sightings in Latin America, said if there had been visitors from other worlds one could be glad that they did not appear to harbour sinister intentions.
The description by the Uruguayan tallied with a photograph published here on the front page on Sunday’s tabloid newspaper El Mundo. It was claimed to have been taken as an unidentified object hovered over a gas plant in the southern city of Bahia Blanca (Argentina).
El Mundo said it was submitting the negatives to local scientific authorities for study to dispel doubts and to further scientific investigation.

Meanwhile, new reports of sightings of unidentified flying objects over Buenos Aires during the night were received at newspaper offices, already deluged by reports of a widely seen phenomenon Friday night (16 July 1965).”
