FEBRUARY 26, 1979, SERODINO, SANTA FE, ARGENTINA, ERNALDO CAMUSONI:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Argentinean ufologist Oscar Allemano reported that on February 26, 1979, at 08:30 p.m., Ernaldo Camusoni, 49, was cutting brush at the entrance of a farm where he is in duty as a rural representative, in Serodino, Santa Fe province, Argentina.

He was surprised when everything became illuminated behind his back, turning the darkness into day.

When he turned around, he saw a red-purplish object, 5 meters in diameter. It approached and landed 40 meters away from him. He tried to make out what the object looked like, but the light emanating from it was too intense to see details. The shape was like a truncated cone.

As he approached the object, he saw a strange luminous figure, 1 meter tall, emerge from its rear. The figure appeared to of a of a strong physical constitution and robot-like, lacking any arms, and it did not move its body when it walked. Its head appeared to be of normal size, but it had what appeared to be a trunk-like object coming from the area of the face. It wore a very shiny outfit. The robot entity walked towards the witness, approached to within three meters, and stood silently, as observing him.

Camusoni did not feel afraid, but curious. Apparently the creature did not want to communicate since it suddenly wheeled around, returning to the object and being lost of sight behind it.

The craft then rose up and went out of sight at high speed towards the south, making a rushing sound. The whole encounter lasted five minutes.

The next day, a circle of dry vegetation was found, some 14 meter in diameter, with odd symmetrical traces inside.

Narratives:

[Ref. ce1:] CEFAI:

11. 1979. February 26. Serodino (Etat de Santa Fe). Monday. 08:30 p.m..

Ernaldo Camusoni, aged 49, was cutting brush in the field where he is in duty as a rural representative, when he was surprised by a powerful light in his back. When he turned around, he saw a red-purplish object some 5 m in diameter that landed 40 m of him. In the back part of the UFO, a humanoid appeared, little more than 1 m of size, but of a strong physical constitution. The occupant of the UFO advanced in direction of the witness and, when it had crossed some 3 m, it stopped as if observing him, turned back, and went back to the object, which then started to rise vertically, to leave at an important speed in the same direction as it came from (southern). The next day, a circle of dry vegetation was found, some 14 m in diameter, with odd symmetrical traces inside.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Serodino, Argentina, on February 26, 1979, at 08:30 p.m., 49-year old Ernesto Camusoni was clearing some overgrown fields at the entrance to the farm when suddenly everything became illuminated behind him, turning the night into day.

Turning around he saw an approaching object that landed 40 meters away from his location. He tried to make out what the object looked like but the light emanating from it was too strong.

As he approached the object he saw a strange figure emerge from the rear of the craft. The figure appeared to be robot-like in nature, lacking any arms; it did not move its body when it walked. Its head appeared to be of normal size, but it had what appeared to be a trunk-like object coming from the facial area. It wore a very shiny outfit.

The strange being walked towards the witness and approached to within 3 meters and stood silently, seemingly observing the witness. The witness felt no fear, but did feel curiosity towards the strange entity. Apparently the entity did not want to communicate since it suddenly wheeled around, returning to the object and then disappearing behind it.

The craft then rose up and disappeared at high speed towards the south. The whole encounter lasted 5 minutes. Ground traces were found the next day.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is Oscar Alemanno, ONIFE.

[Ref. dj1:] DONALD JOHNSON:

Donald Johnson indicates that on February 26, 1979, Ernaldo Camusoni, age 49, was clearing an overgrown field at the entrance to a farm in Serodino, Santa Fe province, Argentina late in the evening after 8 p.m. when everything became illuminated behind him, turning the darkness into day.

When he turned around he saw an approaching object land 40 meters away from him. He tried to make out what the object looked like, but the light emanating from it was too intense to capture much detail. The shape was like a truncated cone.

As he approached the object, he saw a strange luminous figure emerge from the rear of the craft.

Camusoni didn't feel afraid, but did feel curiosity towards the strange entity. Apparently the creature did not want to communicate since it suddenly wheeled around, returning to the object and disappeared behind it.

Donald indicates that the source is the UNICAT database, case #601, citing Oscar Alemanno, Quarta Dimension.

Points to consider:

There is unfortunately only one witness for the encounter of high strangeness. However, it is interesting that it shares none of the usual traits of the "contactees" hoaxes and is not nearly explainable as some confusion.
