WHO ILLUMINATED FROM THE STARS?
There are many cases that remain, in the archives of the researchers, who perpetuate their questions with the passing of the years, incidents that are well documented but beyond all logic.
Even within the varied UFO universe, these cases are considered unorthodox rarities.
In September 1976, 4:30 a.m., a crew of a DC-9 en route to Madrid (via Frankfort/Barcelona) observed a perplexing, powerful beam of light that illuminated a wide circle to the north of Reus.
The illuminated area covered, as calculated by the commander Alfonso Gonzalez, 30 to 40 miles (!) about 60 kilometers and could be observed by another flight which was about 200 miles from the position of the DC-9.
"There, in front of the plane, was a strong beam of light that seemed to come from the top of the sky. And the cone of light [shone down on the] Earth!".
Gonzalez said, "We could not see the source of the light beam. It was as if a giant spotlight was illuminating part of the soil. But we were so high up that it was impossible to detect exactly what it was illuminating.
All I can say is that was of tremendous height, illuminating a wide circle, somewhat north of Reus.
We were half-way at that time over Maella, and I could see perfectly.
I flew to 30,000 feet. and the light beam was much higher.
The impressive thing is that my colleague, Commander Gomez Gonzalez, was watching from the Pyrenees, about 200 miles away. Can you imagine the height and brightness of that ray?
I approached the beam and gave it two laps and saw that the light cone indeed widened as it descended.
The white circle, on the ground, could add another 30 or 40 miles in diameter. It was enormous! "(Source J.J. Benitez Encuentros en Montaña Roja. 1981.).
The light was bright white in color and lit up everything like day.
The light cone remained static (no flicker) shining in the field (with an inclination of about 45 degrees), and could be observed for at least 30 minutes.
The DC-9 flying at an altitude of 30,000 feet and the point of origin of the light beam could not be distinguished, as it was several thousand feet above the aircraft's position.
The circle projected on the ground was perfect and denoted a mysterious power of extreme focus.
The illuminated area covered the Ebro delta area and lit the Mediterranean Sea.
Needless to say that the spectacular significance of this case appears to be beyond doubt as Spanish UFO researcher J. J. Benitez himself notes:
"Judging from the accounts of witnesses, the light cone had a formidable power. And the intensity remained constant.
There were no apparent changes in fluctuations or the stream of light.
This fact, combined with the perfection of the circle that lit up the sea and part of the Spanish coast, leads me to believe, almost by pure logical deduction, that the beam had an origin or source clearly artificial and provoked. But by whom and for what ?"
Was it a military experiment with satellites (never repeated again) or are we facing a new UFO enigma?
