Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Mendoza Argentina, on Winter 1978, a bizarre and very agile individual that wore a cape, carried a silvery cane and had phosphorescent eyes frightened several travelers near the city. A police patrol was astonished to see a tall lanky individual with a cape and a brilliant yellow light on his chest area execute a tremendous leap and fly over them disappearing into the night.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "Gustavo Fernandez."

Points to consider:

Gustavo Fernandez is an Argentinean aeronautical engineer and parapsychologist who wrote some 15 books on aliens, feng-shui, astrology, sex techniques, tarot, "bioenergy" etc.
