1978, EL COBRE, CADIZ, SPAIN, SOMEONE:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

The newspaper El Rincon, Caravaca, Spain, apparently reported that in El Cobre, Algeciras, Spain, in 1978, at night, a local water plant employee was surprised when the plant motors suddenly and mysteriously shut off.

He reportedly stepped outside to check and he saw a luminous object floating at about 80 cm from the ground about 300 meters away. The craft resembled an egg on a flat disc-like platform and it was about 8 meters in diameter. It was changing colors from orange to green and then to blue.

Next to the object stood two human like figures about 1.80m in height wearing a one-piece tight fitting coverall.

At this point the witness felt paralyzed and was unable to move. Moments later the two figures entered the object and this one took off majestically quickly disappearing from sight in the sky. Moments later the witness was able to move again.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in El Cobre, Algeciras, Spain, in 1978, at night, a local water plant employee was surprised when the plant motors suddenly and mysteriously shut off. As he stepped outside to check he saw at about 300 meters away a luminous object floating at about 80cm from the ground. The craft resembled an egg on a flat disc-like platform and it was about 8meters in diameter. It was changing colors from orange to green and then to blue. Next to the object stood two human like figures about 1.80m in height wearing a one-piece tight fitting coverall. At this point the witness felt paralyzed and was unable to move. Moments later the two figures entered the object and this one took off majestically quickly disappearing from sight in the sky. Moments later the witness was able to move again.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "El Rincon de Caravaca, Spain."

Points to consider:

The UFO was reportedly 300 meters away from the witness. This is very far away, so that it could not have been possible to tell, for example, that the UFO was floating 0.80 meters from the ground.

The report is apparently only a story in a newspaper, without much information, and apparently not investigated.
