This very strange case occurred in Argentina in 1986 and is almost unknown in the world of ufology, but Spanish-speaking researchers have documented quite a lot of material on this case.
It all started on the night of January 9, 1986 on a small farm, which was located near the hills of the Sierra del Paharillo. Esperanza Gomez, her sister Sarah and grandson Gabriel Gomez were at the farm that night, according to ufoac.com.
Around 10:00 pm they were sitting and playing cards, when Dona Esperanza suddenly thought she heard a car approaching the farm, and, concentrating on this sound, she interrupted the card game and got up from the table. Then all three saw a powerful red light enter their house through the windows and doors.
Going to the window, they saw an intense red light moving back and forth across the Pajarillo hills, and a few seconds later they saw something emitting this red light fly over their farm, hitting a large willow that grew about 10 meters from them. house.
Then the red light disappeared and everything became quiet and calm. The next day, Esperanza left the house and noticed that the willow had changed the green color of the foliage, now all the leaves were reddish.
And then after a while the leaves turned yellow just as quickly. It looked like some kind of acid had been doused on the tree. The next morning, Doña Esperanza’s son Manuel Gómez was returning from a night’s work and driving to the farm when he suddenly noticed a strange black spot on the southeast slope of Pajarillo Hill. He told his family about this, and the next day Manuel and his son Gabriel Gomez set off in the same direction to inspect the unusual place.
It looked like a wildfire when they arrived, but the men immediately knew something was wrong when they examined the burnt grass. For some reason, the grass burned only from above and did not suffer at all below, which was very different from the picture of an ordinary forest fire.
In a matter of days, the story of the strange red light emanating from the UFO and the unusual fire spread widely among the local population and soon reached Mayor Diego Cesa, who was friends with the Gomez family, and immediately sent a research team to the place. conflagration.
Doña Esperanza told them everything she had seen that night, including the damaged willow. The photo below shows how Gabriel Gomez draws on the wet sand a round flying object that he saw in the night sky
This group also visited the site of the fire and examined everything there. And that was just the beginning. When articles about the incident hit the media, journalists and various scientists began to come to the house of dona Esperanza en masse. Just at this time, the injured willow began to shed its leaves, “as if something had accelerated its biological time,” eyewitnesses say.
Samples were taken of the bark and leaves of willows and nearby trees, and then sent to a laboratory in Buenos Aires, where they were studied and concluded that chlorophyll was somehow extracted from the tree. This was confirmed by an attempt to wet the leaves, which proved impossible.
By the way, when this willow completely shed all its leaves, after some time it was again overgrown with leaves, normal and green, as if nothing had happened. Other materials, dead insects, soil samples, rocks and ashes were also collected from the fire site and near the willow, and they also showed very strange results. For example, some stones have changed their color, becoming much darker on the upper side.
The insects collected inside the burnt place showed amazing features: the bodies of the insects looked completely whole on the outside, but completely empty inside: something seemed to have sucked out all their insides.
The same thing happened with the remains of a small frog found in the same scorched circle. Outwardly, she looked completely unharmed, as if she had literally just died. Her skin showed no signs of having been exposed to high temperatures. Inside, all her organs were missing, like insects.
All this was very strange, but did not allow any logical conclusions to be drawn, except for the impact of UFOs, so the whole story very quickly disappeared from the pages of the newspapers. A year and a half later, in August 1987, a major forest fire (a real one) broke out in the area, devastating all the hills of the Sierra del Pajarillo.
And the only place that went around the fire is the very area that was affected by the UFO!
To the locals, this already seemed like real witchcraft. Moreover, a few days after the big fire, a certain Jorge Suarez specially came to this “enchanted” place, along with journalist Fernando Gabriel, and checked if the grass was burning there. The grass inside the oval easily caught fire from an ordinary lighter, so the version that the UFO treated this place with something non-combustible failed.
In 1989, Spanish engineer Fernando Jiménez del Oso and his team arrived at the site and discovered that their high-precision equipment was subject to strange interference that interfered with its operation.
According to del Oso, the UFO probably “fixed” some unknown energy in the earth, which, like a bell effect, protected this earth from fire, and also caused interference.
