92. febrero de 1973. 4 h.

Finca “La Majadilla,” Castillo de las Guardas (Sevilla). Florencio, pastor, decidió salir de su choza ante la insistencia de los ladridos de su perro y vio un objeto luninoso [sic-luminoso] a la orilla del pantano “La Minilla” que poseía en su parte central y superior un círculo más pequeño de color azulado que giraba a gran velocidad. Trató de acercarse pero el perro se negó. De repente el objeto se levantó y se desplazó sobre el embalse produciendo un remolino en las aguas, perdiéndose entre los montes que rodean a la presa, a gran velocidad. Florencio sólo le contó el caso al dueño ya un perito. (I. Darnaude y J. Mateos)

 

92. February 1973. 4:00 o’clock

“La Majadilla” farm, Castillo de las Guardas ([a city in the province of] Sevilla). Florencio, a shepherd, decided to leave his cabin at the insistence of the barking of his dog and saw a luminous object at the edge of “La Minilla” reservoir that had in its central and upper sections a smaller circle of bluish color which rotated at high speed. He tried to approach but the dog refused. Suddenly the object rose and moved over the reservoir producing a whirlpool in the water, disappearing into the hills surrounding the dam, at high speed. Florencio only related the case to the owner already an expert. (I. Darnaude y J. Mateos)
