These are some of the most famous UFO sightings in Spain

first_imgSpain is a hot country for UFO sightingThe Manises case is one of the best known filesRobledo de Chavela is an area with a lot of UFO history UFO simulation. Image: Pixabay Likewise, the security plane’s systems were firing, so he knew that the object was identifying or pointing. The Mirage F-1 was set to 1.4 mach to distinguish an object similar to an inverted cup without the base that changed color. Several radars detected the UFO in different areas, but the Mirage F-1 could not reach it; the UFO seemed to be playing with its superiority, until it disappeared towards Africa. The Ministry of Defense of Spain prepared a report where the acts carried out by the pilots, the radar recording and the testimonies of several civilians who saw the objects from the ground are collected.Robledo de ChavelaIt is one of the hottest areas of our country. In the 70s and 80s there was a large number of UFO sightings and even the sighting of a humanoid being. We are talking about Robledo de Chavela, a place near Madrid where there are gigantic antennas owned by NASA and INTA. The two best known encounters in the place happened in the early and mid-80s.In the first of the sightings four unidentified lights were seen flying around the bell tower of the parish church, lights that would later line up and set course for the NASA complex. Subsequently, a triangular-looking UFO was seen with a red wake in the back that also put direction to the space center, although the curious thing about this object is that it was also seen by witnesses on the Chamartín Station in Madrid.Also in the eighties several witnesses claimed to see a humanoid being, as well as many occasions in this type of phenomena, of great height. This supposed extraterrestrial came out of what appeared to be a kind of egg, which landed in a forest located between Robledo de Chavela and Valdemaqueda.The UFO of La GrañaAlthough the UFO phenomenon occurred much more in the 70s and 80s, there are previous cases in our country that are well known. One of them, declassified by the Spanish state, occurred in Ferrol on April 2, 1966. That day, around 11:30 p.m., several witnesses of the A Carreira radio station, including a corporal, saw a Luminous and opaque object that changed shape every few seconds. The corporal even took a picture of the object to the left of Monte Campelo.The phenomenon lasted up to 45 minutes, had a bluish color and was located a few hundred meters high. It was the change of form that most missed witnesses. A sailor who was in Narón, near Ferrol, could also see the object, this time located above the radio station. There was no further investigation.Legend has it, although this cannot be confirmed, that the UFO subsequently fell into the sea and was picked up by fishermen in the area. Upon arriving at the port, a convoy of the army waited for them to requisition the device, in addition to indicating that they should remain silent. The UFO was supposedly taken to the La Graña submarine base, introduced into one of the tunnels. Witnesses say that the object bore the logos of NASA and the American air agency, and that the US military ended up taking that object that looked like a spy drone. But … why the lights if it was a spy object?center_img Do you believe in UFOs? Many people answer this question with a refusal, but certainly there are more people who believe in unidentified flying objects, especially those that come from other planets or other galaxies. Many people believe that we are the only ones, others have seen or know someone who has seen something strange and, of course, there are also fans of this type of sightings.Spain is a hot country when it comes to UFO sightings and, in fact, many areas of our geography are visited by fans of these types of sightings to try to see something out of the ordinary. These are some of the most relevant UFO sightings in the history of our country, some of them registered by law enforcement officers or military bodies.The Manises caseIt is one of the best known UFO incidents in our country, especially for the entire sequence, for the departure of a fighter plane to intercept the object and, of course, for the recognition of the protagonist. The JK-297 plane with 109 passengers, gave notice of a sighting of strange lights next to the plane, so an emergency landing at Manises airport was decided to avoid an accident. The first time this happened in Spanish territory (1979).After the event, three unidentified forms were detected by radar – calculating a structure of about 200 meters – so two Mirage F-1 military aircraft of the Spanish army left to intercept the object. One of them was piloted by Fernando Cámara taking off from Albacete, who soon located a large static red light on the Manises airport. Camera was flying at about 1000 km / h and said that light went from being static to flying at the same speed in the blink of an eye.last_img read more

Czichos almost became paraplegic

The Rhenish club announced that its defender will miss the rest of the season, since he had to undergo surgery on the cervical spine. Of course, what was not known to date is that the German defender was at risk of becoming paraplegic due to the injuries he suffered. The documentation “24/7 FC” shows the damage caused by the impact to the cervical spine, which was completely destroyed in some points. “He was very lucky”, explains Dr. Peer Eysel, in charge of carrying out the intervention in Czichos. “Not a few breaks of this type end in paraplegia. We can say that he has won the lottery “he sentenced. Czichos will return to the playing and finalization fields and went to the Rheinenergiestadion stands to follow the Cologne matches as closely as possible. “It will completely heal and recover all load capacity,” concluded the doctor.last_img read more

While happy with the win, Parsard had one lingering regret:”I was really disappointed that she failed to get into the rich Diamond Mile early last month due to insufficient lifetime earnings, and her performance in her two races since has shown me that she would have impacted on the outcome in the $13.5 million race. That’s why I am insisting that the format be changed to an invitational race this year,” said the veteran trainer who won a number of grade one trophy races with UPPA TUNE, POCHEEN and St Leger winner SUPERLUMINAL last season.Meanwhile, BRAWN, running as the 3-2 favourite with Aaron Chatrie riding for trainer Gary Subratie and owner Michros, closed rapidly in deep stretch to win the Allan ‘Billy’ Williams Memorial Trophy overnight allowance race at 1400 metres.

APBARCELONA, Spain — Barcelona enjoyed a big win on Saturday (Sunday Manila time) without even playing.Lionel Messi finally put Barcelona and its fans at ease by signing a new contract that will keep the Argentine forward at the Spanish club through 2021 when he will be 34.ADVERTISEMENT “The club … is my home,” Messi said. “My dream was to finish my career at Barca and we are moving down that path.”The club did not reveal many financial details, including Messi’s salary. According to El Mundo newspaper, Messi will receive 30 million euros ($35.8 million) per season along with a signing bonus of 50 million euros ($59.6 million).FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneWith his former contract set to run out next summer, Messi would have been free to listen to offers from other teams on Jan. 1. That approaching deadline generated speculation Messi could follow Neymar’s lead and leave.Messi’s new deal includes a buyout clause of 700 million euros ($835 million). The massive figure is aimed at keeping away even the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, which secured Neymar in the offseason by triggering his buyout clause with a record 222 million euros ($262 million) payout. Club president Josep Bartomeu said Barcelona and Messi already agreed to a new deal in June, but that following Neymar’s departure they revised it to more than double the buyout clause. It was originally set at 300 million euros ($358 million).Bartomeu said the new contract “is more in line with the current situation in the ever-changing world of football.”Barcelona announced in July that Messi agreed to a new deal that it would make official “in the coming weeks.” The wait that turned into months eventually caused many Barcelona supporters to fear the worst.Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said having Messi signed up for four more years should help the team focus on its strong Spanish league and Champions League campaigns this season. Barcelona visits second-place Valencia on Sunday seeking a win that would give it a commanding lead as it tries to retake the Liga title from Real Madrid.“I am not an expert in contract clauses, but if we look at what happened with Neymar, then you have the answer,” Valverde said. “The renewal of Leo is great news for the club. It calms everything down, especially all that surround the team. We already were calm because we see him train every day and we see his commitment to the club.”ADVERTISEMENT Messi has been the heart and soul of Barcelona for more than a decade.A five-time world player of the year, Messi has helped Barcelona win 30 titles since he arrived from Argentina at age 13. That haul includes four Champions Leagues and eight Spanish leagues.Now in his 14th season, Messi is the club’s all-time leading scorer with 523 in 602 matches.He received his fourth Golden Shoe award on Friday for leading all of Europe’s leagues in scoring last season.“The objective is to continue achieving things, fill the club’s trophy cases, and keep making history at Barca,” Messi said. “We’ve been lucky enough to have won a great many things and I hope there will be more in the future.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?
