Hi, hope this translation make some sense although I am not a professional translator. I am from Malaysia and know Malay which is part of the language
of the South-East Asia. Indonesian language share similarity with Malay and hence my attempt to translate it. My apology for having difficulty
expressing in the language familiar with UFO enthusiats since I don't follow UFO story "religiously".
Note: each paragraph correspond to the relevant paragraph from the original article.
[A resident of Kupang NTT, Willi Soeharly had several photographs of an artifact which was suspected to originated from UFO. The stone in the
photographs was from the house of the late C. A. Castillo, a Spanish geologist who lived in Kupang and died in 1994.
Castillo found the stone while doing a survey at Bukit Setan (Devil Hill), Oesu'u - Kabupaten Kupang. He saw the unusual stone object at a cave-like
area, and tried to split the stone but it was very hard.
The shape of the mysterious stone were made up of two stones that looked like they were tied together, and there were image of star, sun and human
figures as shown above. There was also an arrow pointing to one of the star.
According to Willy, who is now field investigating team coordinator for BETA-UFO for Kupang Province and its surrounding region, the stone contained
magnet and suspected to have radioactive material. In one of the email that Willy send to the Indonesian UFO Observer community (BETA-UFO), he said
that the late Castillo had died of old age and sickness.
The stone was found at Bukit Nitnai (now known as Bukit Setan - Ed.), (Nitnai Hill, now known as Devil Hill - Ed.) in 1992 and there was a piece of
land with three black spot in the shape of triangle, in which each point was about 3-4 meter apart, that according to Castillo was the landing site of
The location was later re-surveyed but due to erosion, all the three spots as mentioned by the late Castillo were not not found anymore. The only
reminder of the spots were burnt mark on the soil that had become rock-like.
According to local residents, in the 80s until 90s, there were a lot of bright lamps that were about 1 meter long hanging from the trees around Bukit
Nitnai, that had now changed name to Bukit Setan. All the while, the area was without electricity, which had caused the local to community to
attribute to the devil and hence the name Bukit Setan (Devil Hill).
The coordinate of the location is -10.153375 S, 123.80015833 E.
The stone is still in the possession and kept in the late Castillo family house. When Willy attempted to photograph the stone, Castillo's wife
reminded him to becareful so that his camera would not be damaged, because prior attempts to photograph the mysterious stone had damaged the cameras.
Nevertheless, Willy eventually managed to photograph the stone with his mobile phone, a Nokia N73.
According to the late Castillo, the local residents used to see mysterious objects that looked like neon lamp coming down from Bukit Setan.
Additionally, Bukit Setan also had a large deposit of uranium. Willy also managed to enquired from the Department of Mines that Bukit Setan does
contain uranium but it is still regarded as new.
Willy also informed that in 1993, there was a UFO sighting at Perumnas Oebobo, Kupang. In fact, the event occured quite frequently and was witnessed
by the local residents, but after 1993 the strange phenomenon had stopped and never occured again.
Later at Wilayah Ngilmina (Ngilmina Province), at the border of Kabupaten Kupang and Kabupaten Timor (Kupang Regency and South East Central Regency),
around 1983, there was a case of a sand miner being shine a beam of mysterious light. During that time, there were three persons who were mining sand
when one of them were shone a beam of light. After the incident, that person was fearful of switching on electronic equipments.
The stone was small, about the size of two clenced fist. The stone is now kept by Castillo's son, Alfred.
Most interestingly, all the while the mysterious stone was kept at the house of Castillo, a UFO in the shape of a saucer with a diamter of 5-7 meter
and blue light underneath it, was seen before.
The object flew very low, about the height of an electrical pole, swinging back and forth shakily. And all of a sudden moved with high speed without
sound and disappeared from view.]
