On May 26, 2011, Argentina officially launched the Commission for the Study of Aerospace Phenomena under the direction of Captain Mariano Mohaupt. Their goal is to contribute in the search for a scientific and technical explanation of those aerospace phenomena which have not been identified.
Countries in South America are emerging as being in the forefront of UFO research and investigation on an official government level.
At the end of last year, Argentina reported that it has decided to create an official UFO research group called “The Commission for the Research of Aerospatial Phenomena”.
A spokesperson for the Argentinean Air Force (AAF) confirmed on December 29th, 2010, that the decision to create a commission to record and investigate claims of unidentified flying objects in that country’s air space will be created.
The Commission will include a multidisciplinary team of meteorologists, flight controllers, pilots, and radar specialists.
The AAF’s media consultant, Captain Mariano Mohaupt told reporters:
“The Commission for the Research of Aerospatial Phenomena is in the process of being formed… and now things will be perceived from the formal, professional standpoint, contributing toward our mission, which is to control our air space.”
Organizations of this type already exist in other countries of the South America:
Uruguay’s Commission for the Receipt and Investigation of Reports on Unidentified Flying Objects (CRIDOVNI)
Peru’s Office for the Anomalous Aerial Phenomena Investigation (OIFAA)
Chile’s Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena (CEFAA).
Brazil announced that the Comando da Aeronautica will be responsible for officially recording UFO sightings in their airspace.
We’ve come to associate Argentina’s Lake Nahuel Huapi – the wild and mysterious inland sea fed by the snows of the Andes – with the cryptozoological mystery known as Nahuelito, and sometimes as the hidedout of refugees from the Third Reich who developed odd technology at Isla Huemul. But today’s story, courtesy of Inexplicata Contributing Editor Guillermo Gimenez, touches upon a “phantom UFO” that was not visible to the professional photographer as the shutter fell.
“In the early days of 2010,” writes photographer Fabian Romano, “summer appeared to have eluded the region. The Cordilleran cold made the day restless and one had to be on the lookout. Only hours earlier, a snowfall had covered the sumits and the skies were overcast at the moment. Strong winds out of the west shook the crystalline blue-green lake, creating waves that broke against the rubble and pilings of Puerto San Carlos. Many people approached the shore to witness the spectacle and a fellow photographer, drawn by the action, fell prey to the splashing. Drops of water and lake spray covered him and his gear head to toe, and he didn’t seem to care.

“We are perhaps receiving evidence of a fourth dimension, and it’s necessary to sharpen our senses, especially when interaction with other intelligences is often telepathic,” said Marron.
A UFO researcher disclosed an impressive experience he had while conducting field research with a colleague. It has enabled him to infer the likelihood that Sierra de los Padres, barely 15 kilometers from Mar del Plata, may harbor “a nest of extraterrestrial craft” in the rocky heights, and that he was able to maintain “close interaction” experiences with their occupants.
Jorge Marron, a member of the CODIGO OVNI research group, explained that the manifestations occurring in that region cannot be framed within activities involving terrestrial technology and are, on the contrary, firmly linked to an alien presence.
However, the most shocking detail– of many that emerged from last February’s sighting, witnessed by Marrón himself and researcher Graciela Donalisio – is the one that brought them face-to-face with to a “Close encounter of the 4th kind” with entities from outer space.
