May 5, 2002: Heavy UFO activity reported over Cuba
Perhaps one of the most spectacular Cuban cases involved peasant Adolfo Zarate, who witnessed the a UFO as it landed 60 metres away.
"The device landed and someone who looked like a christian (i.e., human being), wearing something like a gas mask and dessed in cammo, came out. The ship was also camouflaged, grass-colored. It was raining heavily.
He got down and inspected the craft. He then leaned against a door and spoke to someone in the cockpit. I think he was collecting some rice shoots or ripping out a "malanga" (coco-yam) plant. After climbing up a ladder, the thing let out a gout of blue fire. The only thing I felt was the pressure of the air expelled through its exhaust." "It was the size of a touring machine. I don't know if it was made of wood or iron, or if it was made of air (sic). But it lacked wings and propellers and was noisless. It looked like a flattened egg. A turtle that landed on two legs, like shock absorbers. To me, the device had skates, because it left its wheels well marked. The christian's (i.e., human being) face could not be seen, but he resembled a normal man. I didn't notice him bearing arms," he told the sunday newspaper Juventud Rebelde de Cuba.
