AUGUST 26, 1965, CUENCA, AZUAY, ECUADOR, HECTOR CRESPO, URGENIO CRESPO, FRANCISCO LOPEZ:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

UFO books author Wendelle C. Stevens reportedly wrote in a 1975 Saga magazine article that near Cuenca, Ecuador, on August 26, 1965, at 0130 a.m., Hector Crespo, a highway engineer, his son Urgenio and Francisco Lopez, were approaching Zhulleng, 11 miles from Cuenca, when they saw two beams of bright light shining up into the sky.

On going to investigate what they believed was a car wreck, they found a circular object, 20 feet in diameter, with a transparent dome on top. A bright amber light kept flashing around the edge, and flickering red and blue beams were shining downwards. The three approached within 60 feet of the craft and could see through an open door instruments and lights inside it. The object was standing on telescopic legs with curved dish like footpads, although they were uncertain as to whether there were three or four legs.

Three human like figures were seen outside the object, one apparently adjusting the light beam projector and the others handing him tools. All moved very slowly, "as if under water." They were dressed in metallic looking silvery white close-fitting coveralls, with wide white belts, dark epaulets, and shiny helmets.

At one point, two of the "men" turned and looked directly at the spot where the witnesses were watching, as if they knew the operation was being watched, and then returned to the repairs.

Crespo's son became so frightened that he was nauseated, so they went back to their car. After some time they saw the object take off, the light moving around the edge now a brilliant red and the vertical white beams now extinguished. Just before it "took off like lighting," it became too bright to look at.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Cuenca, Ecuador, on August 26, 1965, at 0130 a.m., Hector Crespo, a highway engineer, his son Urgenio and Francisco Lopez, were approaching Zhulleng, 11 miles from Cuenca, when they saw two beams of bright light shining up into the sky. On going to investigate what they believed was a car wreck; they found a circular object 20 ft in diameter, with a transparent dome on top. A bright amber light kept flashing around the edge, and flickering red and blue beams were shining downwards. The 3 witnesses approached within 60 ft of the UFO and could see through an open door instruments and lights inside it. Three human like figures were seen outside the object, one apparently adjusting the light beam projector and the others handing him tools. All moved very slowly, "as if under water." They were dressed in metallic looking silvery white close-fitting coveralls, with wide white belts, dark epaulets, and shiny helmets. At one point two of the "men" turned and looked directly at the spot where the witnesses were watching, as though knowing the operation was being watched, and then returned to the repairs. The object was standing on telescopic legs with curved dish like footpads, although they were uncertain as to whether there were three or four legs. Crespo's son became so frightened that he was nauseated, so they went back to their car; after some time they saw the object take off, the light moving around the edge now a brilliant red and the vertical white beams now extinguished. Just before it "took off like lighting," it became too bright to look at.
