Narratives:

[Ref. js1:] JOHN SCHUESSLER:

John Schuessler indicates that on 1978/12/04 in the Mendoza province in Argentina, a woman walking home encountered a blue-green object with two beings. She felt an intense cold but at the same time it was like she was in an intense energetic state. When she recovered, she found her left eye bruised and violet rectangular marks behind her left ear and on her waist.

John Schuessler lists the effects as an "energetic state", an intense cold feeling, a bruised left eye, violet marks.

John Schuessler indicates that the source is Radiolande 2000, September 21, 1979.

[Ref. gd1:] GEOFF DITTMANN:

Witness: Woman

Location: Mendoza Province, Argentina

Date: December 4, 1978

Time:

While walking home a woman had a close encounter with a blue-green object and two beings. She apparently suffered a bruised left eye and "violet rectangular marks behind her left ear and on her waist" as a result. (Schuessler, UFO Related...)

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Mendoza, Argentina, on December 4, 1978, at an unknown time, a woman walking home encountered a blue green object with two undescribed beings. She felt intense cold, but at the same time it was like she was in an intense energetic state. When she recovered she found her left eye bruised and violet rectangular marks behind her left ear and on her waist. No other information.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "John Schuessler, UFO Related Human Physiological Effects."

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in December 1978 at night in Mendoza, Argentina, a "woman saw a brightly illuminated blue-greenish rail in backyard. When she stepped on it she felt intense cold, saw two figures of milky white color. She fell in swimming pool, bruises left ear, eye, waist. An object was observed. Physiological effects were noted. One blue-green linear object was observed by one female witness in a yard. Two beings, each wearing a white suit, were seen."

The website adds that "A woman walking home encountered a blue green object with two undescribed beings. She felt intense cold, but at the same time it was like she was in an intense energetic state. When she recovered she found her left eye bruised and violet rectangular marks behind her left ear and on her waist. No other information."

Points to consider:

I was able to find out that "Radiolande 2000", the source alleged by [js1], is likely actually Radiolandia 2000, a popular sensation magazine in Argentina which called itself "the magazine of current events for the whole family." Below, some covers of that magazine:

The magazine mentioned UFOs on occasion and issued at least on "UFO special". Needless to say, it does not appear to be a high-credibility ufology source... though, the articles sometimes came from local ufologists,

As John Schuessler intended to make a catalogue of "effects on witnesses", he give none of the essential information he should have provided. The UFO is not described, it could have been a giant saucer or some debris on the ground that the witness could have put in her pocket. There is no description of the beings, no course of the observation, let's not even ask for distances, hour of observation, place, etc.
