Approximate date

(91)  5 November 1968  Esteros de Bartiba, Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz, Spain)  

       Three army men, José Verdejo, José Luis Durán, and José Cantos Cortes, went out at dusk to an area called "Los Esteros de Bartiba" to hunt ducks. The guard there (a man called Juan, about 35 years old) told them that everything had been strangely quiet that day, with no ducks or herons or anything around. The three hunters soon confirmed this state of affairs for themselves, and as they were leaving their separate stations around a 120-meter long lagoon, they and the guard (who was with Jose Cantos) saw a light take off at great speed from the middle of the lagoon and disappear towards the south. The powerfully bright light, the color of a fluorescent light, agitated the waters of the entire lagoon. (First-hand, CEI, BOF.)
