Hello ATS, today I bring to you perhaps the most famous Spanish case, the source is in Spanish and it has a lot of information, I will translate
everything. I will leave behind what I think is less relevant, if you want more details or need help translating anything, P.M. me. The sources will
be at the end as always.
The Conil Case
- Los Bateles beach, Conil.
On September 29, 1989, something weird happened on the beach of Los Bateles. Five young people from the town of Conil used to gather every night at
this beach between 20:00 and 21:00 hours. The reason of these gathering was to see the strange lights that appeared at night.
In September of 1989 the inhabitants of Conil, had several nights watching some lights in the sky that made some erratic movements but soundlessly.
These lights became an attraction for its inhabitants, which came to the beach to observe the phenomenon and it was on September 29 when a group of
five young people, Isabel and her brother Lázaro, Pedro Sánchez, Loli Bermúdez and Pedro González decided to go to the beach to watch the lights
in the sky.
- Four of the five young witnesses of the case.
About 20:45 hours, they saw an object, it looked like a crescent shaped with red lights inside which passed in complete silence towards the village.
Immediately, the boys spotted two lights, one above their heads and the other on the port of Conil. it all lasted around 30 minutes. At 21:00 hours,
about 50 meters away from them it appeared out of the darkness a couple of beings.
As the beings approached, the young people were sure that these beings were not human. Hidden behind a mound and with the help of their binoculars
they saw the figures of the two beings, they were very tall, possibly exceeded 2 meters, they dressed in a white robe that reached the floor, they
walked awkwardly and the young people said they had no face nor hair. Thereupon the strange beings began to move towards the young people causing them
to leave running in terror.
- The lights.
- The two beings.
The two beings stopped and turned their backs to the young people, ignoring them, they seemed watching a strange light on the port, the young people
also stopped and stayed observing the movements of the strange beings. Soon a small blue sphere began to descend from the sky, stopping within a small
distance from the beings. Immediately, the two beings sat in the sand and began to dig and make a horseshoe shaped mound. The beings lay down on the
sand and they started bouncing the small blue sphere at each other as if playing.
- The horseshoe shaped mound.
The five young people were still watching the beings when a dark figure approached from the sea wrapped with a kind of fog and gave the sensation of
floating, this new being was taller than the other two that were lying on the sand, his clothing were black and had a monstrous white head with two
large black holes instead of eyes. The young people have had enough emotions already and were ready to leave when they saw that the tall being was
gone and the two lying beings incorporated with a new look. They now had a human face, had become a man and a woman with nordic features, the man was
very tall and blond, he was wearing jeans and a t-shirt and the woman which was also very tall but not as tall had long dark hair, she was wearing a
long white skirt, the young people were very confused.
- The tall being.
The two beings, started to walk toward the streets of Conil. Two of the young people began to follow them but stopped when they saw over the sea a
sort of cloud approaching at high speed towards them, Pedro Gonzalez with the help of his binoculars observed the tall black dressed being. The young
people couldnt fully appreciate the features of this being so they agreed to get closer to see it better, the being then stopped and stared at the
witnesses, then turned around and got lost in the shadows. The young people realized that because of the appearance of this being they lost sight of
the other two beings which headed toward the streets of Conil.
After the event, the young people continued on the beach. They were waiting the arrival of an acquaintance, Juan Bermudez. The young people discussed
what happened and decided to remain silent, at 22:30 hours Juan Bermudez arrived and they told him what happened, he recommended them to intern at the
beach to look for evidence. They found some footprints in the sand, 45 cm long and 15 cm wide, they also observed other tracks that had one
characteristic in common, it had four fingers, these tracks were heading to the village and departed from the mound made by the two beings.
- The footprints.
Despite having agreed to remain silent, the news was known in the village the next day.
- On October 5, Diario de Cádiz put the news on the front page of the newspaper, the news was known quickly in Spain.
- The young people days after the event.
On October 7 the Spanish research group of UFO phenomenon (GEIFO), went to Conil and interviewed the young people. They also performed a investigation
on the beach of Los Bateles. Some others well known ufologists also came to Conil, Jesus Borrego also interviewed the young people.
For the GEIFO group, Borregos statements were nothing but an attempt to give credence to a case they already considered a fraud, also on October 16
the Diario de Cádiz, which was the one that brought to light this case, reported the case was nothing but a fraud. According to the GEIFO group the
young people were heavily influenced by the news that appeared in the media on the Voronezh case, these young people, always according to the research
of the GEIFO group, mistook several normal situations, which led them to see the UFO, the beings, etc.
- Diario de Cádiz said that what the young people saw were nothing but british divers.
- The GEIFO group.
The GEIFO group communicated that what the young people saw were the lights in the distance of the ship C.S. Monarch that was located in the coast of
the alleged sighting with extraterrestrials. 10 years after that statement, the GEIFO group completely changes this statement and reports that the
ship was not on the coast but 10 km from it.
- C.S. Monarch
The GEIFO group communicated that the being of 3 meters was a diver of the C.S. Monarch and that at a given moment the diver must had moved to the
beach in a zodiac and that was what the young people mistook for a light. The GEIFO group said that the "human" couple were nothing but normal people,
who were lying down on the sand and at one point, before the arrival of the ship they just left the place.
I will continue the thread in the comment below.
