       Case 141, Los Caracas, Venezuela. About mid-January, 1956—Horacio Gonzales, APRO correspondent, enclosed the following report with his statement seen elsewhere in Orbit. We quote from Gonzales' letter: ". . . four people saw a rapidly pulsating red light fly out from behind a mountain horizontally across the horizon and land in the sea near Los Caracas. The light then vanished but was seen afterwards floating on the surface of the water. The group watching the light thought that a plane had fallen into the sea, and one of them, collecting a few men, set out in a small launch to render aid." Gonzales explains that the rescuers ran into trouble when their launch's engine stopped. The next day they were towed in by the Coast Guard and they told their story which Gonzales investigated personally. Writes Gonzales, "I can tell you that the people saw some strange device which landed on the surface of the sea. The object was flying too slow for it to have been a meteor . . . and too low to have been a plane. The man who first saw the light exclaimed—‘what the hell is wrong with that pilot?’”
