Wow. Didnt hear a word about this in the news.

Too bad im in Buenos Aires, far from Salta. It would be a nice search.

This is the first that I have heard of this. That is a very good find (all articles in the two above posts). There seems to have been several witnesses that have seen and/or heard something.

I would hope that the searchers can at least find evidence of the crash site. If anything; I guess that it could have been a meteorite or maybe some space junk finally giving up and coming down.

Yeah, I agree. Even if it turns out to be a meteorite, it would probably make for an exciting find. It had to be fairly large for all those people to witness it. Hopefully they'll report their findings one way or the other.

** Team reached impact site but found nothing **

January 22, 2007-Provincial police decided to abandon the search for the alleged unidentified flying object that locals claimed collided last Thursday against the slopes of the mountain ranges located to the West of the Departments of Rosario de Lerma and Chicoana. The ground search team, made up of 15 members of the Provincial Police, National Gendarmerie and backwoodsmen reached the site on Cerro El Manzano where the object supposedly crashed on Saturday afternoon, at an elevation of 4,200 meters. They combed the entire area and found nothing.

Yesterday, police suspected that what the locals had seen "was the reflection of the sun over the ice in the area, and which accumulated due to a fall of hail."

As far as noise perceived in the sector goes, one of the researchers stated that "they were detonations of the devices used by tobacco-growers to fight hailstorms."

Given the police verdict, the flight by the National Gendarmerie's Pilatus PC-6 with the purpose of flying over the area, scheduled for 7 a.m. yesterday, was suspended.

The situation began when Beatriz Prieto, a worker at the Las Palmas ranch, informed police over the phone that an object had crashed. "It looked like an airplane in flames," she said.

LMAO! "Reflection of the sun over ice"?!? That sounds like our military/government gave them the idea of one of their world-class lame explanations. Yikes.
