1955, CASEROS, BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA, THREE PEOPLE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

A report with no origin indicates that in 1955, in Caseros, Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, someone saw an object appearing from his terrace. He called his parents and they all watched the flying saucer and the three human-looking crew inside.

The saucer occupants had a very white skin, suits and gloves of the same color, and were moving about inside. One of them appeared to give a friendly tap in the back of another and to laugh.

Apparently, when one of the saucer occupants noted the presence of the witnesses, he touched some control panels and the flying saucer disappeared at a high speed, emitting a gentle buzzing sound.

Narratives:

[Ref. pc1:] PROYECTO CATENT:

The authors indicate that in 1955, in Caseros, Province of Buenos Aires, a witness saw an object appearing from his terrace. He called his parents and all saw in the UFO with 3 crew members, similar to men, of very white skin, suits and gloves of the same color, moving inside. One of the character appeared to give a friendly tap in the back of another and to laugh. Apparently, when one of them detected the presence of the witnesses, he touched control panels inside the UFO and the craft disappeared at a high speed, emitting a gentle buzzing sound.

The following sketch made by the witness is provided:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Caseros, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on November, 1955, at 2230, after eating dinner one of the witnesses walked up to the terraced roof to relax, suddenly he saw an illuminated disc-shaped object descend low overhead. He called up the other witnesses and all were able to see the hovering disc and what appeared to be an observation deck and inside the illuminated compartment three man-like occupants, with very pale skin and wearing white gloves and coveralls. The figures moved around and one of them seemed to pat another on the back and laugh. Apparently one of the occupants then noticed the witnesses staring at them and then moved some levers on an instrument panel. Soon after this, the craft shot up and incredibly speed and vanished from sight.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Proyecto CATENT, Argentina.

Points to consider:

What betrays the obvious fraud in this account without documented origin and with very poor contents, in addition to the low probability of extraterrestrial visitors of human kind who tap themselves in the back and laugh, is the obvious copycat drawing of the so-called saucer of the hoaxster George Adamski appearing in the witness' drawing.
