A tour operator organized a tour to La Carretera in Tupungato and took a photo of the landscape. Upon downloading the file to his computer, he saw a strange object. He had it analyzed by [Argentina's] most prestigious ufologist and she confirmed that it was indeed a UFO.
Is it a UFO, a condor or a spot? Those were the questions that ran through the mind of Flavio S., 31, when he downloaded the photo to his computer and saw a sort of round disk in the air. The event occurred on November 8, 2008, while he was on a tour with Mendozan tourist operators who intended to visit a local estancia (ranch) in La Carretera, Tupungato.
"I'm very skeptical, which is why I had the photo analyzed in Buenos Aires," he told Los Andes On-Line. "I took a photo of the landscape, nothing more. We were traveling on horseback, but no one saw anyting. According to the ufologist, it's not a condor, because it would look a lot smaller at that distance. It's not a spot on the camera lens either. It's a UFO larger than a passenger airliner."
This is not the first time this year that tourists visiting La Carretera return with UFO photos. In April, a group of friends who spent the day at Quebrada del Condor took a cellphone photo in which an Unidentified Flying Object also appeared.
