Go Back Report # 1566


- Mr. and Mrs. Sanchez were driving through the countryside between Peñaranda and Macotera in Salamanca, Spain, when they noticed some lights ahead, perhaps a kilometer away. As they got closer they noticed a UFO low over the roadway. It had a red rotating central light that was flashing and intense and two smaller green lights separated by 20 meters. They approached to within 70 meters when the UFO suddenly took off. It was raining hard at [the] time, and their close encounter lasted less than a minute.
